Frequently asked questions
When should you expect to get featured in Foodtalk's Insta-feed?
How will I know if my Foodtalk post qualifies towards a feature?
I have two Foodtalk profiles with Instagram accounts. Can I participate in the traffic program with both accounts?
Do I have to post my full recipe and ingredients?
This is totally up to you! You can post partial recipes on Foodtalk but they won't qualifiy for our Instagram or Blogger Traffic Programs. That doesn't mean that your feature on Foodtalk won't be featured in our email! Posting full recipes just allow you access to our incentive programs.
How/when do I receive my gift or Amazon gift card?
Once we receive your 3 quality score 2 posts, we'll mark you down for your monthly gift. Our community managers will be in touch with a list of gifts to choose from. If you don't like one of those, you can always choose the $50 gift card!
