“how do i review products for amazon -amazon product review email”

The site positions itself as a professional review panel. They very likely are interested if you are some kind of publisher, experienced product reviewer, social media influencer, or blogger. You state your interest in the site and their marketing experts will contact you, subject to their screening and scrutiny.

By your argument we should probably ban wealthier people from writing reviews, because $100 does not hold the same value for me as it does for someone well above (or below) my standard of living. Just because two people pay the same dollar amount does not mean they incur the same cost.

Most review sites allow the sellers to check out the viewers and approve or disapprove them. I have made a database of the reviewers and make sure I do not send two coupons for the same product to the same person. Most sellers on Amazon are struggling and thefts like this can bring us down completely. I have nothing personal against AmzRC and its owner Andy, but unfortunately he is facilitating this theft and is not willing to rectify it. I just want to warn other sellers before they get burned like me. Andy does not care. Amazon does not care. It is your responsibility to care about yourself”

The problem can be solved if AmzRC allowed the sellers to screen the reviewers, like most other review clubs do. But when I brought the matter up, Andy, the owner of the club, acknowledged the problem and said he will not change his policy. In other words, “I know I am facilitating theft of your product but I could not care less.”

Elite deals and uber are pretty bad. Deals sell out within seconds so its hard to get them. I have gotten a few through elite, but they have grown beyond their capabilities. Uber…I have attempted numerous deals only to get the invalid code error every single time.

It is a simple process that works, and here is an overview of the steps you need to take. If you want the exact details (including e-mails to copy and paste) you can read my Unlimited Amazon Reviews article that I posted to my own site.

This site has one of the largest public marketplaces I have ever seen on a review site! Lots of ladies fashion, phone accessories, cables, umbrellas, jewelry, and toys (at time of writing.) Available to reviewers in USA.

I like Amazon’s 14 leadership principles (LP) and the company’s culture formed based on LPs. Many companies have culture out there but not every company and employee can truly internalize it. At Amazon, I met many good performers who truly internalized the LPs and apply them in their daily work. For example, teams are often “customers” to each other internally, and you can see that LPs such as customer obsession, think big etc. are impacting every decision making. Such practices not only benefit one’s customers but benefit their own work as well.

Such a cool article here. I am always looking forward this author and other authors on Wirecutter. I think the authors are far more intelligent than other authors you find elsewhere. Many of them are alos very funny. Sometimes I laugh and laugh and laugh.

I have been using AMZreviewtrader and if this is the best their is then that is sad. I have used Tomoson also and do care for it. But AMZreviewtrader is a Micky Mouse operation. Permalink submissions rarely work, Then their problem reporting does not seem to go anywhere except to give the seller a black eye. Like its their fault the site does not work. Then they ask you to review in a certain time but some sellers ship from China direct and then you do not even get the product in time. Plus I have un-reviewd products just disappear from my dashboard. All the while they never answer any emails. They just refer you to their FAQ board, which is not very helpful. You can also visit their facebook page and see dozens of similar complaints. I am about to give up on AMZ

Here is more than free products for review. I also like the fact that this particular website has mixed it up by also offering points in exchange of posting, commenting, and simply being active on the site. The points can subsequently be used for gift cards redemption or to enter contests.

I would say, mostly there are restricted to the U.S. consumers. That said it wouldn’t hurt to contact each site or at least check out their FAQ section to see if they accept members from other parts of the world.

Not necessarily. Just becouse a site asks for your information, doesn’t make them legit or a scam. That said, Product Report Card is more of a survey and reward site than a product testing company. You can earn a little side money taking surveys and completing offers. It’s a legitimate site, but as always, you have to be realistic. It won’t replace your day job. Just a fun way to earn a few dollars in your free time.

We cut drives with reported speeds significantly slower than our previous pick, including popular models from Kingston, Lexar, Patriot, SanDisk, Transcend, and others. We also eliminated drives with SSD controllers because the few models out there are too expensive unless you absolutely need the fastest storage you can get.

There are no hard stats. Review writing is not a science. It’s all subjective, both Vine reviews and non-Vine reviews. Sure, some judge less harshly because they got the items for free, just as some judge more harshly because they want to prove their opinion was not bought.

Message: In this email, you focus on making sure the customer got the product in good condition while looking to see they don’t have any problems with it. This can help you reduce the number of negative reviews you get for your products.

To set up your alerts, use the Options tab in your sidebar. First, choose whether or not to receive alerts for negative product reviews, and then tell FeedbackFive when and how to receive your alerts – individually or as a daily digest, and via text, email or both.

One of the major factors that determine how high your website ranks on search engines like Google is the number of other websites that link back to your website. Getting bloggers or other websites to review your products is a great way to “build links” back to your website. And of course the benefit of this is that it will increase the amount of free traffic your website receives from search engines.

Most products are 50% to 99% and there are a few free products as well after the discount is applied. For example, you can try out a plastic bread cutting slicer for free or buy women’s clothing and purses for $30 (70% off normal price of $100).

Hi I got an email yesterday offering me a coupon code to get their product to review it. I checked the code in amazon and yes is legit and I should get the product for free. I’m not part of the vine program (haven’t been asked) and this is the first time I get an email from a vendor from amazon asking me to review their product. So my question is, is it normail that they ask me to share with them my order number? I have the item ready in my card with their provided cupón applied and all but I haven’t “bought” it because the next step would’ve to email them and tell them my order number… is that safe and normal? Thanks!

However, Amazon hasn’t stated yet what makes a brand “Vine-worthy” or how to get invited for this program. We could expect this to change in the near future once the interest on the Vine program increases.

Barbara, I just published a post with a list of 40 websites where you can get Amazon products for free (or highly discounted) in exchange for leaving revives on Amazon. Here is the link: http://moneypantry.com/amazon-review-sites/

You’re welcome! Yes, Toluna is legitimate. The reason for all the questions they need to know your demographic to see if you are a right fit for surveys and product testing. Your information is never sold.

Even with the stricter guidelines, I have found a safe place to do reviews for Amazon sellers. Plus because of the restraint on verified purchases, these sellers are sending products plus paying incentive. If you want in on this, email brett.hudecek. Its gmail

It’s still too many steps for most people, and it’s under something called “All Formats” — that is why I was unaware of it, because the phrase “All Formats” didn’t really tell me what it was doing. It also doesn’t show the average review out of the smaller subset of reviews when filtered, unless I missed it.

Write your message. You can say something like “Hi, my name is XXXX. I really enjoy doing product reviews for seller’s and I would be happy to provide an honest review in exchange for a free product. Here’s a link to my Amazon profile (your link goes here) and here are a few reviews I’ve recently done (include the permalink to the reviews, if you have any).”

This is a review program run by Milliard Brands to get reviews for their own line of “bedding, pet supplies, pool items, cleaning products, yoga and fitness equipment, organic teas and nuts, candies, grocery items, and more.” Available for reviewers in USA.

The company’s popular stand mixer and a handful of other products will come in four new shades of salmon, blue, pink and merlot. The company also showed off several new small appliances at the International Home and Housewares Show this weekend in Chicago.

I tried Uberzon club however after attempting to purchase at least 30 offers I have yet to get a single one to accept the promo-code provided in the emailed offer. I am informed each time that the code is invalid. This is true even when attempting to purchase immediately after receiving the email, therefore not caused by the limit of available offers having been filled. It’s a bit disappointing as I thought the club was a really great way to try out new products. I’ll try a few more of these, thanks to your amazing list. Hoping I’ll find one that is what it claims. Thanks for the info!

“how do you get to review products for amazon -amazon product review corpus”

General lighting tips are to use light from all angles so as to not cast a harsh shadow on one side. Try and not use fluorescent lights since they cast a green/blue hue to pictures. And not too bright either, as in direct sunlight. So, a well lit room in the middle of the day should suffice for most product pictures from reviewers.

Yeah if you Google anything about “product testing” I’ll always come up on the top of search list since I’m very knowledgeable about it and it is my passion. I’ve helped people all over the country to find ways to make extra money from home and join product testing. It’s a great feeling to know that I help make a difference in people lives and spreading the truth about free ways to earn extra money.

For example, we ran an analysis on some headphones we found during a recent research sweep for our guide about cheap in-ear headphones. You can see from the results below that the headphones’ reviews didn’t score so well.

This is a great article. I never even knew that companies give away products in exchange for “honest” reviews. I discovered it because it was mentioned on several reviews for a product ( http://www.amazon.com/Sunbeam-SB022-Handheld-Sewing-Machine/dp/B005UFLE4G/ref=sr_1_4?s=gift-cards&ie=UTF8&qid=1438559732&sr=8-4&keywords=Handheld+sewing) that I was considering. Most people only gave it one star, but all of the reviewers who received the product gave it five stars. (There were between eight and ten reviews.)

I had contacted them directly to review several of their products so I don’t want to hurt the relationship but their request was just unethical. I explained that and their response was an apology and that they understand the ethical concerns. That was that.

I ended my membership on AmzRC after a month and will never join a review site that leaves me with no control over who snags my coupons. Even after canceling my membership AmzRC continued withdrawing money from my Paypal account and when I wrote to Andy he did not reply. I stopped the automatic payments from Paypal.

Hi Tristan. Great information! I just wanted to underscore a sentence you wrote above regarding receiving payment post-review (I work in an industry where the payment based upon success of the product is frowned upon/illegal/immoral as well). As you point out, this is so important: “It’s payment for review (a gray area, or flat out forbidding), and open for being taken advantage of by the person requesting the review.” Again, great article and advice within the comment section. BTW, No, Tristan did not pay me for this comment!

They are another recently launched site with a large marketplace of discounted products: lots of electronics, as well as watches, apparel, toys, kitchen/BBQ, pet supplies, hand bags, leisure, personal grooming items and more. Available for reviewers in USA.

Many Amazon sellers have been concerned about the future of feedback solicitation since Amazon.com, Inc. (“Amazon”) began allowing buyers to opt out of non-critical communication from merchants. Some have started thinking things like Is feedback solicitation really worth it? and Is this even allowed by Amazon?

Thanks for your reply. It seems the UK are sooooooo far behind the USA, it’s crazy. I lived in America for 3 years, wish I would of known about all this back then instead of spending half my time couponing lol (which I have to admit, I loved). I will check out that link too. Thanks 🙂

If they see you’re unlikely to leave reviews, they most likely won’t give it to you. For this reason we recommend leaving a few reviews on products you’ve previously purchased before trying AMZ Review Trader.

I work at a large e-commerce company in the Netherlands and this is how I have generate the most product and shop review on our site. After a lot of A/B testing I have increased the conversion (review written) on the e-mail with 24% in the last year. Yes, yes I know… not everyone will be able to get the same results, I just wanted to share some insights.

I stumbled across your page and tried out a couple pages. I’m crossing my fingers that some pan out since the first couple I could hardly qualify for a survey. Thanks so much for sharing. Your page is awesome.

One fatal flaw in *any* commentary on items that are purchased vs. items that are offered in exchange for review is that it assumes a higher quality review will come from someone who has paid. Some of the worst reviews come from people who bought products because they felt no obligation to really test them, but rated them based on something trivial – such as the product not being the size they wanted or lacking a feature they wanted even though it was never advertised as having that feature and measurements were given clearly. People review DVDs not based on the media, packaging, or value, but on how well they liked the content and wanting to promote their favorite program.

Stay from UberZon Club. Signed up and have not snagged any type of deal from them. Plus if you don’t have Amazon Prime, then the so called discount price is not much of a discount when shipping & tax is added. Was a member for over a year and have not purchased one item. Plus, I have noticed that a lot of reviews on Amazon now are from people who received free products or products for a discount. The majority give great reviews (4 or 5 stars) rarely do I see a negative review for a product that was free or offered for a discount. Wonder why that it, as a buyer it makes me skeptical about purchasing a product that practically everyone else received for free or a discounted price, especially if I have to pay full price along with shipping & taxes. Usually don’t purchase these products because I don’t trust the reviews. Have noticed a lot of these types of reviews lately. Don’t really know if Amazon is okay with this or not, but I think it is something that needs to be looked at.

What I do care about re:reviews is that while you may be as good as gold, there is an unfortunate connotation that if someone gets something for free that there might be a tendency to review less harshly. When it’s your money on the line you get more annoyed if something isn’t up to snuff. That’s a tendency.

I just signed up with amzrc.com, but I realize everytime I click on a deal to review a product in exchange for a discount, it takes me to the USA amazon website. I live in Canada. I am not sure if I can purchase any of these deals without incurring border fees?

Allure Beauty Enthusiasts-   As an Allure Beauty Enthusiast, you’re at the top of your beauty game—with insider access to exclusive offers, VIP events, and the chance to sound off about trends, product launches, and beauty preferences.

Both Ooi and Tommy Noonan, founder of ReviewMeta, pointed out that I was likely seeing the extreme end of the spectrum because I was looking for cheap electronic commodities, where reviews can be make or break for would-be sellers. But ultimately, this is an effect of Amazon’s crowded marketplace. Tommy Noonan says that many sellers may be forced to turn to ginning up reviews somehow. “They’re caught in a Catch-22. You have to get reviews to sell, but to get reviews you need to sell products,” says Noonan.

I wish there were a way to follow reviewers on Amazon, lately I’ve found a few rare reviewers who say they received a discount – usually through Vine – but that the product was inadequate and then they extensively detail why it was poor for their needs.

Vine reviews can also be filtered out of the listing by using the “Filter by” option and only selecting “Verified purchase only”. But, sadly, the “Verified purchase only” filer does not filter the star rating. I would love for Amazon to add that feature.

Yea I agree about product testing usa. It’s kind of wrong to get someone’s hopes up and then to find out your entered in a drawing. And the fact the item you want doesn’t even draw every week maybe like once a month.

The required registration is easy. Get to their website and scroll all the way down until you find a place to fill in your e-mail address and click join. Promotion codes will be sent via e-mail and your prize for your review is free OZ Naturals product. Update: This site no longer offer 100% free products in exchange for reviews, instead you get heavily discounted products. You can get (full-size) products for  $1.95. Thanks to Ann for the update.

Here the membership requirement is more stringent in the sense that you should have an active buying habit within Amazon.com, and have a credible history of reviews. The main products are often the new products under promotion. And you get to bring them home free for your review.

It is just frustrating to see that big companies love to break what is working and never fix what is broken. I am losing trust in Amazon reviews. I used their reviews even when I was buying something on another website. They became standard and now, short of paying for consumer reports (which doesn’t cover as many products anyway), I feel that there is no good solution to the problem.

I had already sent the reply I copied here, and I heard back from them asking me to proceed and providing the discount code. However, the code drops the cost to $2.99. Is that normal? Should I proceed? Honestly, I like the look of the product and it’s something I wouldn’t mind having.

You are not required to leave a 5-Star review. If it deserves 5 stars, give it 5 stars; If it deserves 1 star, give it 1 star. Don’t let a seller or group bully you into a good review for a bad product.

Message: In this email, you focus on making sure the customer got the product in good condition while looking to see they don’t have any problems with it. This can help you reduce the number of negative reviews you get for your products.

At this point, I was deeply leery of buying any dongle off of Amazon. But I was much more curious about the reviews themselves. Clearly, these reviews were unreliable. But how did they get there? And was there a way to sort out the sham reviews from honest feedback?

This new product promotion program is owned and operated by the same veteran team that ran The Review Effect. Enjoy a simple email-only program to get up to 99% off on great new products. Available to product testers in the USA.

I accidentally stumbled upon this and people who do reviews on Amazon and not part of the precious vine elite (and I never felt that way until tonight) are called liars and people with no integrity or morals. I posted a question as to why people getting discounts to review are not honest and isn’t a discount or free product from one just like taking a discount or free product from another. That was a huge mistake, and I don’t say this lightly. I was bombarded with the most vile humiliating replies. I was called names and told I was just a couponer wanting to get anything I could. Which I might say is far from the truth. I have only accepted offers or codes for items I have wanted to compare to products I am using or accepted a code for an item I truly have wanted. I know some will not always be honest as they should so they will get offers, I am not one of them. I want a product that works. I also respect others and would not want to mislead others. Yet tonight I wanted to close my Amazon account and never buy on that site again. I’ve been a prime member for years with the Amazon Fire tv box, the works of all Amazon offers.

AmzSpecial is a rare bird in that they charge a monthly subscription fee. For $0.99 a month, you can belong to their email list and save at least on most deals. You will also receive deals several times a day and there is no limit to a number of deals you can apply for.

Yeah if you Google anything about “product testing” I’ll always come up on the top of search list since I’m very knowledgeable about it and it is my passion.

This is a review program run by Milliard Brands to get reviews for their own line of “bedding, pet supplies, pool items, cleaning products, yoga and fitness equipment, organic teas and nuts, candies, grocery items, and more.” Available for reviewers in USA.

I specifically look at 2 star reviews. The 1 stars tend to be emotional and often illogical (The shipping took too long etc). 3 stars tend to be wishy washy. 2 star reviews often are specific about what they didn’t like which helps me. If their bugaboo is one of mine, I can avoid. If not, then I read some 4 star reviews to see if the people who did like it liked it for the uses I’m after.

Took me all of 2 min to go through a half dozen products posted on the Amazon Shill/Club Review Sites and compared them to the Amazon listing. Surprise, most if not all the positive reviews were shills ‘discounts’ and nearly all the negative reviews were from actual users…some of the shill reviews gave 5 starts for products that didn’t even work! In one dash cam example I found, the video quality was so poor, it rendered it useless…and the reviewer still gave it 5 stars!

I am sorry that you have had bad luck with amazonreviewtrader, however I love using it! I have gotten so many good discounts/free items from the site. I have 6 things on there way right now actually to review! I have found that sometimes you do have to wait a bit longer than you would like to be able to review an item but if you request a bunch of things that you wish to review, you will most likely get chosen to do so. The ones that are completely free sometimes take a little longer than the ones you have to pay a little for. Hope this helps 🙂

“get discounted amazon products for review amazon product review vs seller feedback”

This is a great question. I had a similar situation where I received a product (a battery) I could not fully test it because it was a size I could not use. I struggled with the same dilemma as you: do I simply review that it arrived promptly? That the packaging for it was adequate and minimal? Note the quality of the materials I can see?

I been look for sometime now , to do this kind of stuff to do, I have nothing else to do ,other than time , it would help me out besides give me something to do that’s important , to ppl an this is ,can you tell where to go or what web site thanks Merry Christmas

More and more all the time, it seems. Most recently, Amazon unveiled new tricks that let you call and message other Alexa users, along with new software tools that’ll let Alexa control Amazon Fire TV setups, as well as select smart TVs.

There is a free tool called Trim which will cancel your unused subscriptions, find you cash back, and renegotiate your bills for you. All you do is sign up, connect an account and their robotic assistant will email you ways that you can save money.

So what’s going on here? Scanning the listing for the highly reviewed three-pack, I found there wasn’t much of a range — they were either wonderful or terrible. Of the 673 reviews, 654 were five-star reviews, while the remaining 19 were one-star reviews. And those five-star reviews had some quirks.

TestZon was only launched in 2016 and already shows multiple signs of being a great place to shop for nearly free. If it isn’t already, TestZon needs to be on your short list. They have products for almost every category imaginable and can test many for free including video game headsets, swim goggles, and clothing. If something isn’t free, you can find many other items for sale for only a few pennies. 

I would like to understand better is Amazon allowing vendors to submit products to customers with a 90-100% off coupon in return for “un-biased” reviews legitimately? I am finding this practice very deceptive due to the fact that the sellers are misleading the consumers. Some feedback states it was offered in exchange for a discounted price, is this actually acceptable practice by Amazon standards?

The products on display at Product Elf is impressive (perhaps only second to AMZ) and they do an amazing job to keep their website updated almost on daily basis (so the freshness is always there – in term of product variation and look and feel of the web page).

I’ve found that, at least with hardware – computer stuff, TVs, audio gear, etc. – you can pretty easily sort the real reviews from the fake. Just look for the longer reviews that often, as Kagil says, refer to other items, or similar items by other manufacturers. It’s also not hard to find real reviews for classical music, though that’s certainly not an area where there are a lot of fakes. 🙂

It might seem a bit too good to be true, but the product testing sites reviewed in this guide really are genuine and, if you stick with it, they’ll happily send you enough items to keep your spending as low as possible.

As it turned out, I LOVED the book and in my opinion it held a great deal of crossover appeal and whether or not you liked sci-fi, you should read this book. So, in my review title, that was generally what I typed. I kept it short of course, but got the point across. And in the body, before going into specifics, I reiterated a bit about me as a reader, the type of book I normally enjoy to read (including a few examples of recent favorites) and gave the book a comparison and a description of what I’d compare it to that wasn’t considered sci-fi.

“how do you get free products from amazon for review -how to get free products in exchange for amazon reviews”

This is my favorite page on the web! I have it bookmarked. Thank you so much for all of this information. I have linked up your page on my site so other freebie lovers can check it out for themselves as well. I sent you an email too. Showing some love from http://enjoyfreebies.com ☺

“To a previous reviewer…Amazon will not dominate the online market EVER if they persist in bad customer service. Fortunately I have never had a problem with getting my products quickly. But if I need to return and actually get my money BACK, it’s a nightmare. Purchases no longer come with a packaging slip or receipt. Since I bought many items at once this time, that would have helped. Needed to return a few items and took them up on their new offer to leave returns at Kohl’s. My items are still “lost” 3 weeks later. Amazon “customer service” tells me there’s nothing they can do, but they at least said it very politely. Ugh!”

Here is more than free products for review. I also like the fact that this particular website has mixed it up by also offering points in exchange of posting, commenting, and simply being active on the site. The points can subsequently be used for gift cards redemption or to enter contests.

Book bloggers have the uncanny ability to passionately and tirelessly spread the word about their views—and reviews. Unfortunately, many review books on their personal websites and blogs, and not all are posting those reviews (or variations thereof) on Amazon. But don’t let that stop you.

A lot of times it could be simple mix-ups or an employee making a mistake. I would contact them and find out whats going on before taking any more surveys. You dont want to be wasting your time for nothing.

I do NOT contact companies before I write a bad review about a product. There was one time where I wrote a bad review about some earphones and the company sent out another set because they thought mine were faulty. Second set worked better, so I amended my review. I also once got asked to take down a bad review stating ‘I did not know how to use the product’ (they were ear buds.) I do not take do reviews, only amend them.

An easy way to find the best deals on Snagshout is browsing their “Under $5” section that includes snags from every product category. While the deals are always changing, one example of getting a product for free is a premium Berberine supplement for 95%.

So, just know that you can’t always believe what you see when it comes to five-star reviews. While some overnight successes do exist, often a four-star product with authentic reviews and a proven track record is a better buy. Look beyond the overall star rating and read with a critical eye, and you’ll be in good shape.

Read through the group rules. Some require member forms, review forms, and/or order forms. Beware that some groups will use SuperURLs, or gift card codes, both of which can place a red flag on your account.

When asking for reviews, make sure you’re asking the right questions. You don’t just want to know if your customers liked the product. You want to know how they’re using it (explanation, photo, video), who they’d recommend it to, and if the product has changed something in their life.

I also do reviews for a tech company on Amazon. Luckily their products are great so I am genuinely giving positive reviews. I gave a few bad reviews when necessary like when this power inverter buzzed after I hooked it up to an LED strip. I didn’t catch it in my initial review, but went back and added it. I do not see a big issue with people like me, but the wholesale purchase of positive reviews from a review mill takes it a bit far.

Good points Anupam, faking testimonials are never worth it! Even if you have to give away a couple products to bloggers or friends, it’s worth it to get real reviews. In addition to sounding genuine, they could give you invaluable feedback for perfecting your product and even improving your shopping experience.

Reviews 4 Success is another platform better for bloggers and social media influencers than the casual shopper. The registration process includes listing your Amazon profile URL, blog address, and Facebook profile address. Based on your profile and audience, sellers will choose you to test products for free and also help launch and market their product. If you are not interested in marketing products you get free online, it is best to avoid Reviews 4 Success.

Like a lot of people, we read Amazon reviews as part of our product research. Getting broad feedback on a product can be very useful when we’re looking for widespread issues or seeing how a company handles warranty claims. However, as time has gone by, we’ve begun to read user reviews with a far more critical eye.

If you plan on making a lot of purchases through these review sites or on Amazon in general, we highly recommend you get Amazon Prime. You’ll get your product a lot faster and within 2 days at no cost.

In addition to managing feedback, FeedbackFive allows merchants to manage Amazon Product Reviews. Sellers can build custom solicitation rules using our Email Campaign feature. Merchants can even upload a list of ASINs that they wish to track. Receive real-time email alerts to be notified of new reviews.

ProducttestingUSA is a COMPLETE JOKE. They will NEVER send you ANYTHING to test. I seen the one product was looking for 3 people to test it out It was for nail polish. ONLY ONE other person had signed up to test it, and it was closng in 17 minutes. I figured I would be the second person to sign up. The nail Polish closed and NEITHER of our names were on the \”Testers List\” SO WHERE DID the \”Testers\” come from? Another thing I noticed is when they email you \”Lucky Testers\” Names. One week it might say: Cindy Brice was this weeks lucky tester. Next week it might say: Cynthia Rice is our lucky winner. The names are ALWAYS VERY Similar. Are they using employees names? Or making up names? I laughed when it said the one winner was:Ockijos Ramerizest. WHAT kind of name is that? Theres another name I see A LOT of and I can ONLY remember the FIRST name. They will do it: Ozzie, Ozzie and Ozzey. The last name is ALWAYS the same though. Another site to \”Look out\” for and DONT EVER USE is called: Point Club. You earn points for taking surveys and at times they send you things to \”test\” and take surveys on the product you JUST tested. This site is nothing but SCAMMERS. I took a survey for 7000 points the one day. I COMPLETED the survey and once I got to the end, the survey gave me a message: Thank you for completing our survey. You will be redirected back to your dashboard in a few moments to be issued your 7000 points. A few seconds later, I am taken back to the dashboard, BUT the cartoon guy who greets you on the dashboard said: You did NOT qualify for that survey, here is 12 points for trying. I contacted their Customer Service. I SAVE page views once I complete surveys JUST IN CASE something like this would happen. I told Customer Service: Here is the screen shot which says you HAVE COMPLETED and will be given 7000 points on your dashboard. They told me NO, it was a survey glitch, I ONLY get 12 points NOT 7000. Also, you need 25000 points to cash out for 25.00. I had 17560 points the one day. The next day I logged in, I had 11250 points. gain, they told me it was a system glitch on their part, I now have the correct amount of points. IF you DO MANAGED to get the 25000 points needed for the 25.00 paypal deposit, it takes 30 days for them to put the 25.00 into your paypal, ND they charge a 3% fee for transfer. TOTAL SCAMMERS.

I actually came across this answer on accident so oddly enough and for the first time might I add I can answer this. 🙂…… This is assuming that the rules are the same in the UK as they are in the US, I can’t imagine why the wouldn’t be, you are allowed to contact the seller directly if you choose. If you do this everything I’ve read said to politely contact and point them to your profile as well as your enthusiasm for helping sell products with integrity and honest reviews. Last but not least sliding in a hint about your “portfolio” of previous reviews can’t hurt…😉

yes I have left 1 2 and 3 star reviews many times and I continue to receive products all the time. I rarely give 5 stars because my review was solicited. I feel by giving 4 stars it is helping offset the fact that my review was solicited. But when I do give 5 stars teh product deserves it. I think the only product I gave 5 stars to in the past few weeks was for a set of flybar stilts for my son. they really deserve 5 stars.

For Amazon Resellers: First examine the issues the buyer had – can the problem be remedied? Consider offering refund or replacement. Buyers can remove feedback for up to 60 days after a review is posted, so there’s usually a chance of redemption.

However, I like writing honest reviews and reviews that actually help people, even if they don’t receive votes for it. I’ve seen some Vine reviewers who were honest, but the majority are not, imo. I’ve seen positive Vine reviews for products where all the non-Vine reviews were poor. So while I’d love to be a Vine member, I don’t think I’m dishonest enough for it.

OZ Naturals VIP List Visit their site, scroll down and enter your email address where it says JOIN THE OZ NATURALS VIP LIST to sign up. You’ll receive promotion codes via email to get free OZ Naturals products to review.

Like a few other review sites mentioned here, VIP Power Club will notify you when deals are available instead of crawling through their database and applying for products. Most offers are between 90% and 100% off and you can expect to pay no more than $5 for most items.

3. I doubt I will ever be asked to be a Vine Reviewer but I am enjoying reviewing several products. Tristan (and any other reviewers reading this), would please take a couple of minutes of your time to look at some of my reviews and give me constructive feedback? I am not the greatest writer and appreciate any help you would offer.

To set up your alerts, use the Options tab in your sidebar. First, choose whether or not to receive alerts for negative product reviews, and then tell FeedbackFive when and how to receive your alerts – individually or as a daily digest, and via text, email or both.

https://www.amazon.com/reviews/iframe?akid=[Your_AWSAccessKeyId]&alinkCode=xm2&asin=B004HFS6Z0&atag=[Your_AssociateTag]&exp=2011-06-01T22%3A32%3A53Z&v=2&sig=pxn6bbln%2B%2FVTPJdj8oCcXvjTHmo3spkUMjbQMPbhCKI%3D

One major piece of information that Amazon does not share is how often it invites users to the Vine program, so it’s never really clear if Amazon is actively recruiting new reviewers. So if you want to be considered, you’ll simply have to keep at it. Most anecdotes found online of Vine members being invited are somewhat dated at this point.

To sign up, you will need an active cell phone to verify you are a real human being. The signup process is free. You can apply for offers on their network website and they will also send you new targeted offers via email too. It is expected you will leave a review within 14 days of receiving your products.

“review on amazon products -amazon product review template”

They’re no longer the hot new thing in the coupon space, but LivingSocial and Groupon can still alert you to amazing deals. You often have to act quickly to get a voucher, and smaller, local restaurants can get crowded after a sale, but the sites let you try new things, from massages to smoothies, for cut-rate prices. 

You have to act quickly, however, as they go incredibly fast. Most of the items listed won’t go above $30 at full retail value, but it’s pretty easy to snag a few decent products for only $1 – $2 dollars.

3.      Request Amazon reviews via newsletter and social media. Chances are, the folks subscribed to your newsletter and your fans on Facebook already like you, so why not ask them for reviews? There’s a decent chance they’ve already bought a product from you, so they can provide legitimate, positive Amazon customer reviews. In our article about getting reviews on Yelp, we noted that Yelp discouraged directly soliciting reviews. Amazon, on the other hand, is much more lax.

This new product promotion program is owned and operated by the same veteran team that ran The Review Effect. Enjoy a simple email-only program to get up to 99% off on great new products. Available to product testers in the USA.

This is a product promotion network sending discounted and free product samples to shoppers / influencers. Membership is free. Available for reviewers in the UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, France and Japan.

Paid Reviews – We do not permit reviews or votes on the helpfulness of reviews that are posted in exchange for compensation of any kind, including payment (whether in the form of money or gift certificates), bonus content, entry to a contest or sweepstakes, discounts on future purchases, extra product, or other gifts.

You can find many items as low as 10 cents. Sometimes, you can even buy something for a penny before shipping. While other review sites have a books category, Jump Send also seems to be one of the few that usually has books available at discounted prices and several free downloadable PDFs.

I’ve found that, at least with hardware – computer stuff, TVs, audio gear, etc. – you can pretty easily sort the real reviews from the fake. Just look for the longer reviews that often, as Kagil says, refer to other items, or similar items by other manufacturers. It’s also not hard to find real reviews for classical music, though that’s certainly not an area where there are a lot of fakes. 🙂

Vogue never sent me anything over the year I was with them..BUT..they kept sending surveys. I finally wrote them and told them they were just using my information for free and I was tired of it. So..don’t join unless you just want to fill out surveys and get NOTHING in return.

If anyone is looking for a group to get amazon products for free or deeply discounted go to Reviews4Success.com and they just added a bunch of new products. They are a legit company and if you are a seller you can use them for product promotion.

And incidentally, Amazon specifically tells us not to talk about shipping and purchase process in reviews in their guidelines so that isn’t a flaw of the free-item/Vine review system as is mentioned here. They want that information given in product/seller feedback. Check their review guidelines page about what reviews are rejected. No one is supposed to include that information.

We then lay out each product grouping in a side-by-side comparison that’s unique to Top Ten Reviews. Of course you can click on each product for a more in-depth look into what sets it apart from the others.

producttestingusa.com is not a legit site from what ive heard. you have to answer a bunch of yes or no survey questions and sign up or it signs you up for different stuff. but as I was on one of those sites I read the small print and it talks about getting so many silver, gold, and bronze points(I don’t know what all that entails-but doesn’t sound legit to me)

She’s bought things we never would buy anywhere close to retail price, and in some cases have been completely shocked by how amazing something works. Things that absolutely deserve a 5-star rating but we’d never have remotely considered giving them a chance w/o the massive discount.

Good points Anupam, faking testimonials are never worth it! Even if you have to give away a couple products to bloggers or friends, it’s worth it to get real reviews. In addition to sounding genuine, they could give you invaluable feedback for perfecting your product and even improving your shopping experience.

Thanks for the suggestion. I don’t know anything about them since they are new to me, BUT I will say that their site does not use encryption during the sign-up, login process and account area. I HIGHLY recommend you hold off using the site until they fix this security issue. I will be contacting RMI telling them they need to fix this to protect their users/customers. Thanks again for bringing this to my attention.

“product review amazon.co.uk -how to recieve free products for review on amazon”

Another problem with Amazon’s review system is that they often link together similar yet different products, so that multiple versions of a product show all the same reviews. For instance, blu-ray and DVD editions of a movie are often linked together, so you’ll see reviews for the blu-ray and reviews for the DVD lumped together in the same list. There was once a computer model that had different versions with notable differences (one with an Intel processor, and one with an AMD processor, for instance), and reviews for both models were lumped together in the same list. People were commenting on the reviews saying “This PC doesn’t have an AMD processor, it has an Intel processor, you reviewed the wrong product!” – When in fact it was Amazon’s review grouping, rather than the reviewer’s mistake.

The other side of the problem is giving something a 5-star review because you only have 30 days to review it and it’s either great or just hard to review properly with only 30 days (bags of seed, out-of-season items like humidifiers in the summer or things that just break after 60 days of use).

UPDATED! Looks like this site got a major design make-over. If you like “I Love to Review”, then I think you may enjoy this site. Reason is that it appears they are taking a lot of notes from the way ILTR works, which is a good thing. Available for reviewers in USA.

One fatal flaw in *any* commentary on items that are purchased vs. items that are offered in exchange for review is that it assumes a higher quality review will come from someone who has paid. Some of the worst reviews come from people who bought products because they felt no obligation to really test them, but rated them based on something trivial – such as the product not being the size they wanted or lacking a feature they wanted even though it was never advertised as having that feature and measurements were given clearly. People review DVDs not based on the media, packaging, or value, but on how well they liked the content and wanting to promote their favorite program.

There are two types of review – those for specific products and those for your ecommerce shop/service overall. We use the BigCommerce built-in reviews for products and ShopperApproved for our overall service. This latter service was chosen because it’s entirely independent of us and helps with our Google AdWords visibility (we get a star rating under our ads). It’s also very good value compared with other services.

We lay-folk have long known that scientists use common objects for strange reasons – see NASA researchers sending rubber ducks into a glacier to track ocean currents, or environmental scientists floating tampons down streams to find pollution.

This is not a review site in the traditional sense, but an email subscription for a retail store in NYC that also has an Amazon store and needs reviewers for their Amazon products. Available for reviewers in USA.

Love to read your post here. As a Chinese reader from China, the words from your post are better than those official page provided by amazon for me. lol…. I haven`t selling on amazon yet(I an individual online store: itead.cc), but it will come soon. Your post is helpful for me to sell my products on amazon in the future. But now, there is also exist one question in my brain, that is how to let reviewers write something for my online site. Because I also want to my site get more visitors. Could you help me with this? If your could tell me some sites or blog for products, I will much appreciated for your help. Many Thanks!

Also, each Amazon review site can limit how many discounts you can redeem each month. This ensures other customers can also find great deals and helps verify you are taking the time required to accurately test a product.

Trust Review Network has some enticing offers on their homepage. You can buy valuable items like unlocked smartphones, laptops, and mini espresso machines for pennies on the dollar. In regards to the smartphones, the normal retail price is $179.99 and they can be purchased for $0.99.

If you do decide to sign up for more than just one or two sites, then I’d suggest you register a new email address just Amazon review sites. That way you can keep everything in one place and make it easier and faster for you to check for new opportunities, instead of having to weed through tons of other personal emails to find emails from review sites.

It could also provide more information about reviewers directly on the review page: You can currently click into some reviewers’ pages and see what else they’ve reviewed — unsurprisingly, many people giving suspicious five-star ratings to cheap electronics tend to rate exactly two items as five stars and then never review anything again, or have many reviews, but choose to keep them all hidden. There are real privacy concerns here, but other services like Yelp and TripAdvisor have figured out ways to provide useful metrics about how much to trust an individual reviewer — these same metrics would only help a confused Amazon shopper.

The Reviewer Feedback Programme monitors Elsevier’s performance from the perspective of reviewers on Elsevier journals. We’ll ask you about various aspects of EES and other aspects of reviewing via an online survey. Areas of interaction and support are measured and reported regularly. Elsevier’s performance is benchmarked against that of other publishers.

Once you become a Top Reviewer, companies sometimes request you give them shout-outs on multiple social media accounts. The more expensive the product, the more advertising the companies will want from you in order to get items for free.

Deals for Review allows you to get deals for at least 50% off. They even partner with sellers to sample products before they launch for feedback. Most of the products available on this site are for lower-priced items. But, you can still find some good deals on items you will use.

It’s really helpful as it catches almost all mistakes that I might make. Nothing huge, but just little “hte,” instead of “the,” etc. I include that one because it sends me a report every Sunday that goes over improvements I might work on and a listing of my most corrected words. That one shows up a lot :). Just being careless…

The amazing variety of products here means that I can afford to pick and choose on what makes great reviews on my end. The selection process is almost immediate, which is good as it means no waiting. Naturally, the products being featured here are expected to move fast and you need to regularly scrutinize your e-mail so as not to miss out on a nice product.

“how can i get free products to review on amazon -how do you get to review products for amazon”

Since I began receiving free products I have kept a spreadsheet of all of the items that I have received. Since 26th June I have received 128 products with a combined value of £2,392.00 ($3,588.00). I find myself reviewing lots of similar products, most common items are Bluetooth Speakers, Bluetooth earphones & Headphones, Power Banks, Phone & Tablet cases & IP Camera’s, but I also received kitchen utensils, lighting, tablets and computer peripherals. As a consequence I now only accept approx 20% of the items that I am offered, you can get fed up with reviewing Bluetooth earphones!

Compared to the earlier one, this Honest Society function more as an online community, where members are encouraged to offer their honest and unbiased opinions. The products featured on the review list can be quite a mixed bag, ranging from electronics to audio, to cosmetics. In return, you get the stuff free or at a 90% discount.

I feel that the downvoting of reviews still happens. But I feel it has all but stopped ever since Amazon slapped hundreds of reviewers with a lawsuit for abusing the downvoting and paying for votes on Fiverr.

I’ve always wanted to do this, but think I’m too honest for them. I’ve been an Amazon customer since Amazon debut, have purchased hundreds — if not thousands — of items, and have reviewed nearly every single one of them. Why? Because I LOVE writing reviews.

You won’t find a selection of products by going to their site, but rather a landing page that’s only used for registering a new account. They are a bit more strict in their process for giving out discounts.

6 Months on I am currently ranked 173 on Amazon UK, and as a result I am contacted everyday by third party sellers offering me free samples in return for my honest review, unfortunately as of yet I have not been invited to join the Vine program. The vast majority of companies that contact me are based in China who’s product are stocked in UK Amazon distribution centres and are usually delivered next day via Prime, but some items are sent from China or Malaysia.

I casually used this product to try to disperse a small band of non-violent campers who had locked their arms together. Although initially it seemed to be effective, it took two applications! The worst part is that the next day they multiplied exponentially! Now what?

KabelDireckt is open to the U.S. marketplace and several European marketplaces. Like EtekCitizen, the product offerings here are for only one brand, KabelDireckt. Their catalog is very slim as they specialize in computer cables. If you want to try one for free and are willing to write a review, this can be a good option to save a few bucks.

Very good article. I enjoy using the Panny 25mm f1.7 (which first came out at US$99!) and 45-150, the Samyang (Rokinon) 12mm f2 (though I paid less than $240 on sale so I think your $600 might be for the t/2.2 geared video version). I would suggest including a fisheye (Samyang 7.5mm f3.5 ~$250) and ultra zoom (Panny 100-300mm).

HI, thanks, it’s a nice article.  You suggest a gif card to ensure the review is accepted and marked as verified.Other option may be a promo code of 99% and free shipping, then send the code to the reviewer. Amazon may penalize  this option? Thanks   

I totally agree, but it’s a nice quick way to capture small mistakes in formats that normally, you might really not care. In my Amazon reviews, because I’d never before even thought of doing reviews regularly, I really didn’t bother with editing. And that’s what I mean as far as most internet content. I share on my favorite sports team sites, and others that my grammar just really doesn’t matter. However, I too have been an editor, and as a journalist I feel the need to “set an example,” as if anyone actually is looking for an example or learning from me anyway! That’s my ego, as usual, pointing out to me how important I am ;).

Hi Tristan, i’ve just read your blog and there are so many helpful hints. I’ve been reviewing product now for just under a month and i’m absolutely loving it. I have products turn up on my doorstep that I would not normally look at, it’s great. I can only find 2 sites in the UK for product testing, are you able to advise me of any other sites?

I think Amazon has answered some of your requests. Reviews that come from the Vine program are labeled at the very top of the review with the phrase “ Vine Customer Review of Free Product”. This phrase is in bright green text so you can’t miss it. This blurb is automatically attached by Amazon to any Vine review.

very interesting article. I have a quick question. I have sold some of my products on Amazon. I have done small tweaks to the design (which does not change the performance of the product). Because I have a new code with I have lost all the reviews of my old products. Is there any way that review can be transferred?

As for being attacked, don’t write your review with that fear in mind. You are supposed to be writing for the customer in mind. I wrote a negative review about some probiotics once, and it gets more up-votes than any other product I reviewed recently. I still get asked to review probiotics (which I don’t accept anymore.)

With Loreal testing panel they are not bogus… You have to qualify for their product tests and it can be quite frustrating if you are not chosen. I have been with them for about 3 years and have only qualified for 3 product tests but it was worth it to me. I received a nice gift bag each time as a thank you filled with lots of great products.

Like a few other review sites mentioned here, VIP Power Club will notify you when deals are available instead of crawling through their database and applying for products. Most offers are between 90% and 100% off and you can expect to pay no more than $5 for most items.

That’s good to know. I’ve been frustrated with Amazon’s tendency to group reviews for multiple versions together. People have even complained about one of my reviews because they thought I had posted the review to the wrong item.

Oh, and to those who are afraid of Amazon having a problem with these free for review sites…..they only take issue with it if you DO NOT disclose that you received the item for free or at a discount. As long as you clearly disclose that in every review you should be fine. I add this statement: “I received this item at a discount in exchange for my honest & unbiased review” at the end of every review and i’ve never had a problem. Once I forgot to add it & they emailed me that my review could not be posted. I corrected the review & then they posted it. Just be sure to actually test out the item and leave a real & honest review. If it looks suspect to them and they think it is a fake/dishonest review (if they see you cut & paste the same content in all your reviews or if you are posting the reviews before the item has even been delivered, that sort of thing) then of course you may get banned.

Seems to me, that Amazon should be suing Fiverr right along with the other 4 that are paying for reviews (http://time.com/3817401/amazon-sues-fake-reviews/), as it seems to me what Fiverr is doing, is just as illegal.

“amazon product review disclaimer amazon products for review”

Hi Megan,Very interesting article. I have only had time to peruse it, I will digest it later when time permits. However,my problem is how to get that first virgin Amazon review. I purchased hard copies of my book, handed someout and mailed others. One recipient tried to write a review on Amazon, but was politely told he didn’t buy thebook from them, so they wouldn’t accept his review.I have written to a few reviewers, but didn’t get a reply.How do I get off the mark?Sincerely yours Michael Conlan  

As someone who consults with a lot of business owners I know how difficult it is to get a business up and running. Everything out there has already been invented. If you create a BETTER product of something out there then how is anyone supposed to find it on Amazon without any sales history?

With testing products it all depends on what demographic the company is looking for and they’ll send you a survey to complete to see if you qualify. Don’t expect to get a whole lot of products to test every month if you stick to completing surveys all the time then you’ll start noticing product testing surveys to pop up in your email box quite a bit.

I’ve been on the top 500 Reviewers list for a while and have occasionally contemplated contacting sellers and asking for a specific product to review, but never have because it just seems tacky to me. As far as I know, doing so isn’t against Amazon TOS. It IS FCC regulation that you must disclose in your review that you received a discounted or free sample to review.

There are companies that choose to send me the product directly. I often notify them of the option of a coupon code and tell them the benefits above. I find a lot of companies don’t even know they can do that, and about half choose to send a coupon code.

My company’s products are caught up in FakeSpot as “F” and I am furious. All our reviews are legitimate and gathered over six years. Without knowing their algorithm detection, there is no way to assess accuracy. This is very harmful for companies who this happens to. I have emailed them twice waiting for a response.

Getting free products in exchange for reviews is very tempting. But be aware that these sites were created for the benefit of the sellers and not the customers. These sellers are giving you free or deeply-discounted product and EXPECT a four or five-star review. This is a form of “review manipulation and can get your account banned from Amazon and all the reviews deleted, including the reviews that were rightfully purchased before joining the review clubs. Regardless of what these review clubs say, all rules MUST comply with Amazon’s Terms of Services (ToS). You can not get any monetary feedback in any way, not by reselling or blogging for profit. Too many reviewers have had their accounts terminated for violating Amazon’s ToS and then try to find out why and are not told by Amazon. Amazon is cracking down on these reviews and it’s the reviewers who get hit first before the sites are shut down. So join these with caution.

With Survey Panels, you get paid to take surveys, do product testing, join paid focus groups, and joining online communities. Some surveys you’ll qualify for and some you’ll not because it depends on what demographic the company is looking for.

As for the coupon codes saving you less than the stated amount…that is flat out bad business. I have never run into that problem, BUT I have had the problem of not reading the email fully before I entered the code. In a couple cases, the email sort of implied it would be free, but never really said it was a 100% off coupon code. In those cases, I ALWAYS reply the Seller and tell them that they need be upfront and crystal clear about the actual discount the code is applying. I suggest you all do the same so we can stamp out the vague emails and bad practices going on.

very interesting article. I have a quick question. I have sold some of my products on Amazon. I have done small tweaks to the design (which does not change the performance of the product). Because I have a new code with Amazon, I have lost all the reviews of my old products. Is there any way that review can be transferred?

If it’s a good seller with great customer service would it be wrong to send them a review and star rating and ask if they want it posted or if they just want to learn from my experience with their product. Does that go against the purpose and spirit of reviewing?

We identify the writer as either a verified purchaser or un-verified purchaser. This aligns with normal ecommerce practices to capture the user ID of the person who writes the review and provides for better authoring, and discourages bad behavior.

I found this vessel balanced with well placed handles. However, without a vent, the rotting cow blood I stored in it as part of #grizzlybear DNA study was poised for explosion. Indeed, the vessel split at the seams.

Thank you for a positive article on sites for reviewing. I am a reviewer, fairly new. I am an Amazon prime member. I noticed you made a remark somewhere in all the responses above about Amazon community board for help. Please don’t refer people there. I will explain this in detail :

I have bought a computer it is great no problems very fast. Delivered when it was suppose to be very please my account is Bernice wiley and husband James Larry poole live in alto. Ga Thinks amazon is great oh yes and stand behind their products

After you get the design done, you need to print it out and add it to your packaging. Most manufacturers that make their own packaging can do this for you. If you, on the other hand, have a separate packaging manufacturer, they will most certainly be able to do it for you.

Let’s say I am an Amazon seller and I want to get some reviews on my product(s) in order to drive up the sales. Finding buyers individually and contacting them would be time-consuming and tedious. Not to mention, you can’t be sure if the people who you send your product to for free will even leave a review.

The bottomline is the introduction of bias and this lengthy response confirms that for me. I appreciate an emotional reaction to a product because #human so bashing those out of hand further emphasizes a departure from what a regular reader is looking for in the Amazon reviews. I greatly value review authors who employ a more systematic approach but my personal feeling is that a review made by a person looking for a specific product for their use and then buying it with their own money will always be more valuable to me than a review created after getting the product free. When I want those types of reviews, I visit a site like the wirecutter outside of the Amazon reviews environment so I have some context for where the bias is coming from. I loved this article for taking these reviews to task!! Thank you!!

This is another exclusive review program that requires an invite in order to sign up. Click through and use the application form we found to apply for your invitation. Since FAQs are closed to members, info is limited at this time. (Likely) available for reviewers in USA.

This week, I received two different blouses that normally retail for $20 each, a vegan face lotion ($26), a tooth whitening kit ($45) and a set of baby bibs ($20). I could accept more, but I choose to only review products I can truly use, or ones I can give away to my friends and family.

Do your best to stay away from writing only a pure positive review: they seem fake since there should be at least one thing they could improve on. It’s hard to think of a book or product that is perfect. Plus, these reviews read more like the book author’s family members or company employees than real reviewers.

I read some places that you need to be ranked so high to be considered, but I’ve never bothered to verify that, because it won’t affect how I write reviews. I’d love to be a Vine member, but only if an invitation were extended with how I write reviews naturally. That seems in contrast to some Vine reviews I read, which come across as an attempt to market the product.

iLoveToReview offers discounts on many accessory products that cost less than $10. If you like testing charging cables, fashion accessories, or small kitchen tools, you might enjoy iLoveToReview. They also have offers on more expensive items like clothing, cookware, and high-powered flashlights.

Put your reviews front and center. Consider placing a couple reviews right on your homepage. If you have reviews for specific items, publish them on each product page. You can even add an entirely new page dedicated to housing awesome testimonials with a link in your top nav. Just make sure you get them on your site in a way that works for your product. We love how Primal Pit Paste shows off their raving fans on a special section of their website.

I just read through the squidoo article. Now that I think of it… I did do a survey on BzzAgent that asked me about my child playing with Transformers but I didn’t qualify because he’s a one year old. I also did 2 surveys on Smiley360 one of which asked if I had a dog and I don’t so I didn’t qualify so I think that was the Greenies test product and the other one at the end said I qualified to test Oxyclean 2in1 Stain Fighter. I think I’m starting to understand how these panels work! I’ll just continue to fill out my surveys!

The best reviews are posted by people who are trying to find a solution to a problem or to fulfill an actual need, not just say whatever for a freebie. Most of the “honest and unbiased” reviews just regurgitate color options and product specs.

My son said he loves the game, but the software is awful. It took us hours to get around the install problems and then we found out the key code had already been used! Based on the reviews and forum comments, I’m not even bothering with EA to try and resolve this issue. Our best guess is that someone has figured out their key algorithm and the codes are being activated illegally. So, even though we bought a brand new game, the verification key is useless and my son can only play a limited portion of the game.

Another problem in not having any control over who takes the coupons is that not all reviewers are sane people. My products are good. Less than 5% of the reviews have 3 stars. All the rest are 4 or 5 stars. But someone gave me a 2 star. When I looked at this person’s other reviews, I saw that she habitually gives bad reviews to products that generally receive good reviews. She is obviously a disgruntled or maybe careless/thoughtless/jealous/nasty individual. Had I seen her track record I would never have approved her to receive my product.

Hi Boris,No, it’s not the same. In the VINE program Amazon sends advanced product samples (before the product actually becomes available for sale on their site) to it’s top reviewrs. The reviews they leave are not counted as “verified purchases”, and thus they do not artificially inflate the product’s sales data, like your suggested method will. Many new merchants are using coupon codes to give away products for review, and most are getting away with it at the moment. It’s a big risk in my opinion, as it’s only a matter of time before Amazon says, “enough is enough”, and then clamps down on the practice (and possibly penalizes merchants who have done it in the past too). If you are planning on building a solid, long term sustainable business on Amazon, I’d advise against engaging in any practices that are not clearly acceptable. Stay healthy and stay out of the grey zone my friend! It’s not worth the risks! 🙂  

I am signed up with a few different places. Loreal is good. you get a nice gift bag with full size products worth over $100. I go to their Clark,NJ location. also CRL in Piscataway,NJ. good studies there too. Coty in Morris Plains,NJ. doing two now. will get paid $100 for one and $30 for the other next week in cash. not bad. Revlon in Edison NJ too.

#14 – Elite Deal Club – can’t order anything. Every time you click on a product to get the coupon code, you get a message that says “code not found”. I’ve even written emails to them, and still not working. A couple of people who are signed up with Elite Deal Club, get the same message. So, does not work.

“review products for amazon |how do i review products on amazon”

I know, I know….I should just type and not bother with any edits until I finish completely. But I’m a little OCD, and as soon as an error pops up I have to fix it. I’ve gone back and forth with editors, professors, up to and including my wife! But it’s just me, as my compulsion forces me to fix edits as I go. Grammarly has been very helpful, working along with me, together merrily Fixing edits as we go and keeping my blood pressure down!

When the final list is complete, our reviewers reach out to manufacturers in search of no-strings-attached samples or products available on loan. Side note: Most manufactures are happy to provide samples – never mind the possibility of a bad review – because they believe in the quality of their products and look forward to the free press – good, or bad. In some instances, when a product sample is not available, we head to the store and shell out the cash to pick it up just like you would.

There is a very good reason to suggest that people do NOT use their regular Amazon purchasing e-mail address in their profile. There could be scammers lurking the info pages looking for addresses that they might be able to use to try to get fake orders placed through Amazon.

I now want to include the first email, as it doesn’t contain the same sort of errors. Which to me, says that I received a form email that has been prepared for employees to send to potential reviewers. And the reply was from the employee and was typed uniquely. Overall, that makes me feel better about it, but I still appreciate your feedback.

I have had a few of the companies requesting a video review. I have been unable to upload a video. Can someone show me how to do this. The I found on Amazon is old and I can not follow the same steps to post a video review. Thanks

Blue Ribbons Review also has an extensive marketplace with discounts of at least 50%. You can also receive exclusive deals through their email that can be higher than those listed on the website. And, you can request products you currently do not see on their site as well.

Scott, I am not sure about Product Testing USA. To me it doesn’t look like a real product testing site. I get the feeling it is more of a “feel out a survey for us and you may be chosen to test a product” kind of site. So, if you are looking for real product testing, stick with the sites mentioned in this post, or other legit companies. Hope that helps.

I’ve notice with Survey Panels that women with children get more opportunities to test products. This may be the reason why you don’t get as many. There is no way to say how many products you’ll be able to test each month with companies, it all depends on your demographic. Make sure to fill out any screeners a survey panel sends you for a better chance to get into product testing.

Lastly, you can always sign up for reviewer programs such as ILoveToReview.com (which is currently only U.S. based, and which I am a member.) BUT! Be very careful about signing up for these programs. Not all of them are legit, and some use shady tactics to coerce reviewers into only leaving 4-5 star reviews, or giving you bad advice that can actually have your reviews pulled down by Amazon, or worse. Do your research!

I looked around and do not see an Amazon Seller Directory where you can contact Sellers directly. This might be useful to the reviewing community as well as the Seller community. I will look into the feasibility of building such a directory here on The Reviewer Collective. Probably catch hell from Amazon, but we’ll see.

“Consumers definitely can notice when a review is fake,” said Alex Tarnoff, senior consultant at Vivaldi Partners Group. “Obviously, fake review writers are becoming more sophisticated, but there’s a lack of genuineness of overall tone or over the top in praise, or the inverse, with negatives. It does hurt Amazon’s credibility a bit.”

Writing a book is hard work. As is marketing that book before and after launch. But when you distribute your book through Amazon, getting reviews may be the single most important thing to determine your book’s future success. There’s no secret formula, and no one way to garner the most reviews, but with a little research, a lot of patience, and a ton of outreach, those coveted reviews are but an email away.

If so, I don’t know of any that does that specifically. I think the closest you can get to that is to use one of the Amazon product testing sites where product owners (including electronic sellers) give products for free or very cheap in exchange for an honest review.

This product testing program is part of the Mengo brand of mobile accessories and Bluetooth speakers. Like Etekcity’s Etekcitizen Program, Arctic Product Tester Program, and TrueOpinion, they only offer their own brand’s products for feedback. Great quality products! Available to reviewers in USA.

Another problem in not having any control over who takes the coupons is that not all reviewers are sane people. My products are good. Less than 5% of the reviews have 3 stars. All the rest are 4 or 5 stars. But someone gave me a 2 star. When I looked at this person’s other reviews, I saw that she habitually gives bad reviews to products that generally receive good reviews. She is obviously a disgruntled or maybe careless/thoughtless/jealous/nasty individual. Had I seen her track record I would never have approved her to receive my product.

I don’t think there is much you can do, Tracy. Keep in mind that when they do these product testing runs, they are looking for specifics demographic (basically their main consumers), so based on the info you provided, you may not be a good fit for any of their tests so far. That’s why I recommend joining multiple sites so you can increase your odds.

It’s worth noting that NetGalley provides free ebooks to reviewers, and a lot of Amazon reviewers use that, as do I. I read a lot, and I like to review books, and It’s great to get some books I wouldn’t have bought from NetGalley.

1) Terrible DRM. You can only install the game 5 times. This isn’t a problem unless you share the games, have multiple computers, or upgrade your computer frequently. There is evidently a way to “retrieve” installs, however, I have not used it and cannot give first hand experience. I have heard that the retrieval system does not work particularly well for Mac computers.

While an interest in the products enrolled in the program is key to getting an invite — aside from looking for Vine reviews on Amazon (which is not an easy task), there’s no real way to know which products are enrolled. All we know is that vendors pay to have their products included — a fact that Amazon did not initially disclose, leading to some negative coverage of the program in the past.
