“receive free products for amazon reviews _paid to review amazon products”

EtekCity has great products that are always offered for free. Yet their website only promotes product from one brand: EtekCitizen. In exchange for leaving your review, they are giving you their products for free that they put up on Amazon.

@Wirecutter/LAUREN DRAGAN – you might have been able to write a more persuasive piece if you dug around a bit before you wrote the piece. Seems like you could have done a bit more digging to really get some interest in all these fake damn reviews. However, I believe wirecutter benefits tremendously from links/fwd to amazon products – so you might be biting the hand that feeds you.

Savvy shoppers almost never purchase a product without knowing how it’s going to work for them. They read the good, the not-so-good, and the downright ugly to make the all-important decision: should I pull out my wallet and take the plunge?

A few of the different product you can buy include scales, power strips that also charge USB outlets or controlled by remote control, camping supplies, and other supplies that can be useful for DIY projects around the house.

Once you’ve got your list, go back to the boilerplate form letter you were using for the Amazon top reviewers. Tweak it a little, making sure to reference things spotted on the blogger’s pages, and adding any commonalities. Email them (if contact info is available on their site) or use the contact form on their site if available.

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.

You’re suggesting that the big companies such as Lego, Otterbox, Disney and others have a monopoly. You’re not giving the little guy a chance… These websites are helping small businesses. Get yourself together and think outside of the box.

After registering for an account, you will begin receiving emails letting you know if there are new products available for review. If there is a product that you would like to review, you will need to grab a coupon code, purchase the item from Amazon at a super discounted rate and then post your review to Amazon within two weeks of receiving the product. Once your review is posted to Amazon, you also need to submit the review link to HonestFew. Those who do not review the items they are sent are removed from the program.

I tried signing up for a few of these, including the Amazon Review Trader. But when I try to review a product, I get a notice that I have not added my user profile. When I add it, I get a message saying “that profile URL is already in use”… I’ve tried a number of times, logged out of anything using my Amazon log on, restarted my computer, but it persists.. I tried contacting them to ask what could be causing this, but received an email saying they have too many requests for help so my email will not be answered.. Can a person only sign up for one of these programs? Could that be the problem?

Any feedback you can provide will be appreciated. I am very frustrated as this is increasing the time I am spending attempting to navigate obtaining products and managing the entire process. I am performing a job search and the time I spend on product review is intended to give me a mindless break in between completing job applications.

Amazon is the place where people can find essential items at good prices or profitably to sell their merchandize. This website has been helping out business owners and common folk for many years. Time for you to harness its potential and make profitable deals.

Hi Tristan, I find that the email address in the profile has been missing on Amazon recently. And I think it not just happened to me. So the most effient way becomes no way and amazon sellers like me don’t have other chances to contact reviewers via email. That is very anoying. Do you guys have came up with some brilliant ideas to solve this problem? I saw someone writing his email address in “About me” as name(at)gmail(dot)com and it is visiable.

Thank you for such valuable information, Lou! I’m commenting on your reply regarding ProductTestingUSA.com being a scam. It would be nice to note in the main article if possible, since not everyone will read all the comments.

One downside here is that they tend to mix it up here! Sometimes you find fabulous deals that save you a lot but there are also lots of what I call cheap deals. I mean, 50% off is great but then it is not great saving when you apply them to those that cost little (like 5 bucks) in the first place.

4. How to get a review. Click on each reviewer to get details on the person. Note that this step may require some sleuthing skills. In some cases the reviewer will share their contact information, in other cases they will share their name and business, and in some cases they reveal squat. I have found about 50 percent of the time I can find a way to contact the person in under a minute—often via e-mail, other times via a Facebook page or Twitter.

Suppliers often find you based on reviews you have written before. Example: a camera manufacture will go to Amazon and open up detail pages on cameras that are similar to the one they want reviewed. They will likely sort the reviews by the latest ones and start scanning them for well written reviews. As we mentioned before, this would be a review of good length, the content covers the product features, has some constructive criticism (not too much), and the tone of voice is neutral yet leaning toward supportive.

Do you think leaving an Amazon review How to Know If You Can Trust an Amazon Product’s Reviews How to Know If You Can Trust an Amazon Product’s Reviews Amazon product reviews are hit or miss. Sometimes they’re helpful, sometimes they’re fake. Here’s a tool you can use check the integrity of a given product’s reviews. Read More is a waste of time? Then, an Amazon program that’s been around since 2007 might have you thinking twice. Amazon’s Vine Program consists of a group of handpicked reviewers who get products for free in exchange for honest reviews.

Be sure to add a picture and a location to your profile. For some products, there may be a geographic limit to where they can send it. Some items can’t ship via air, and other items have a short shelf life and need to get there quick. And be professional about the image you choose. A half-naked selfie of you is not going to win over suppliers, unless you are looking to attract products for half-naked selfie-taking type people.

“why review products on amazon -how to get free products from amazon for reviews”

But after reading this post, I went in and cleaned up a few of mine that weren’t detailed, and I scanned all of my titles to make sure they would stand out to a consumer as the type that would be helpful.

and then i read your listing about product testing companies — and these same companies were in the list. so, i went back to each of them and scoured them, looking for a way to do anything else besides “just” take surveys, and was looking for a way to be able to “test products” instead, but could find no solution or answer.

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.

Let’s say that during calendar year 2016, 10 of the sellers I refer spend 1,000 in the site’s platform fees during their first month, will I then be issued an IRS form 1099 indicating that I earned 10,000 in taxable (to me) income? Sure, prior to completing my “refer a seller program membership upgrade”, I would be aware of this since I’ll have read the site agreement’s fine print. Yes, I do that when my tablet and my phone prompt me to upgrade iOS software, just like I do when an upgrade/update message from iTunes/MS Word/Acrobat Reader appears on my screen asking me to click, “agree” prior to clinking, “install.” Sure I do.

Woops, I just saw that you did mention global test market. How about this one though: weartest.newbalance.com. I just signed up with them. Not sure if they pay though. But I’ll let you know when I find out.

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.

Frosty, I think you may have misunderstood what Venushakti Velatura was conveying. VV was being paid to write fake reviews – it was her job. So, yes, in fact, “those companies” WERE telling VV to compose positive and (VV states) negative reviews. She didn’t get free or discounted products, she (I assume VV is female if that is her real picture) didn’t get products AT ALL. She put food on the table by writing fiction, either to boost sales or undermine competitors, depending, apparently, on her assignment.

Yes, this should seem different that what you expected because this is NOT how the process works in most cases. Sounds like this Seller is doing it all wrong, and frankly needs to be reported to Amazon if they don’t clean up their act. Personally, I recommend writing back to them and letting them know that you will NOT up-vote another review because it goes against Amazon policy, and if they continue to ask Reviewers to do this they (the Seller) can get be removed from Amazon. Amazon is suing Reviewers for a very similar practice of fake reviews and fake votes.

First and foremost, we are a review site – not a news site. We won’t have updates and announcements of new product launches or news about upcoming changes to the latest and greatest handheld gadget before its released. You can visit one of the other Purch brands for that.

This review program is part of the ZeroLemon brand of accessories for action cameras and smartphones. Like Mengo, Arctic Product Tester Program, and TrueOpinion, they only offer their own brand’s products for review. Available to reviewers in USA.

Usertesting is another video reviews site, focused on reviewing different websites. They give you a free software which lets you record your mouse movements while you visit the site you are reviewing along with your spoken words. You get paid $10 for each video review you create. And when you think about hundreds of websites that are available to review, you can easily see the potential in making real good money with UT.

Wonderful post. Thanks for sharing the insights. Would you mind throwing some light on not your product itself but the competition your product had prior to you entering. For example – I sell essential oil in the geated beauty category and since the competition is so fierce, I’m struggling to make organic sales. Indeed, sales and reviews seem to be the mantra for AMZ algo. I’m currently trending at 31 reviews and should hit the 50 review mark in 2 weeks hopefully. I’m truly hoping things start to change then.

On behalf of Giveaway Service Team, I wish to thank you for writing such a positive comment about us. I would also like to point out that the discounted price on our website must not exceed $2. This means authors review products they got for free or at a highly discounted price.

I know this list can be overwhelming, but you can start from the beginning and work your way down. The more panels you join the more chances at getting products to test, plus you can make money too with these panels.

After you get the 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.

Hello. Have you ever tried Giveaway Service? We’d like to point out that there are 19,500+ influential authors who individually receive thousands of daily visitors and have over 190,000+ combined Facebook fans looking to review products via our website. More than 45,500 reviews have been published through our service that exists for roughly one year and is growing constantly. We are committed to making both businesses and authors satisfied with our services and encourage everyone to leave a comment and join the discussion.

“[They] provide these “Verified Reviews” only if the reviewers obtain the product for free, in addition to receiving payment for the “review.” In at least one instance, the seller of a “Verified Review” was willing to receive an empty envelope …simply to create a shipping record to .. avoid detection by Amazon.”

Your suspicions are not without warrant. It’s a fact that these “incentivized” reviewers are much more likely to rate something 5-stars than anyone else: http://reviewmeta.com/blog/analysis-of-7-million-amazon-reviews-customers-who-receive-free-or-discounted-item-much-more-likely-to-write-positive-review/

It is not unethical, just stick to reviewing what you do know about the product. Everyone has limited experience with products to some degree, just stick to your experience and the facts. You don’t have to mention you lost it.

At the Echo’s launch, Alexa’s native capabilities included reading off weather forecasts, setting timers and alarms, and managing your to-do list and shopping list (and, of course, crossing items off of that shopping list by making purchases on Amazon whenever you ask her to). One trick that I use almost every morning while I’m brushing my teeth is to ask her for the news. In response, she’ll offer a curated list of the day’s headlines and news blurbs from popular sources such as NPR, CNN, BBC News and Fox Sports Radio. You pick which sources you want to hear from and which categories you want to hear about in the Alexa app.

But IMO Vine is a minor gnat compared to the plauge of Coupon Queens/Kings that are flooding the listings with millions and millions of reviews where they bury their “Honest and Unbiased review” disclosure. It gets so frustrating trying to find a product that doesn’t have hundreds or even thousands of coupon reviews. Sometimes I will go to Bed, Bath & Beyond or Home Depot’s website and get the brand names of legitimate products and then specifically look up those brand names on Amazon. And a lot of the times it is cheaper at BBY or HD so Amazon loses a sale.

So yes, I’m sure some reviewers – like you – may very well be able to get to the heart of a product despite getting it for free or for very little-but I would imagine that many don’t take it that seriously or even realize how the process affects their reviews. Or there are others that will not bite the hand that feeds them.

I recommend reviewing products you are interested in getting more of (and own, of course.) So, if you are looking to get more baby or audio products, then make sure you review a lot of baby and audio products. I recently reviewed a few of the popular baby toys and items around the house, and now I get hit up about baby items A LOT. The key is to review popular or mainstream items. I believe suppliers often target those reviewers first since there are usually hundreds of reviewers to choose from. In fact, some suppliers have told me that they found me via another item’s review I wrote.

As for the second criteria – Amazon looks for your interest and expertise in specific product categories. Anecdotal evidence shows that sticking to one product category, and becoming a recognized and helpful expert in that field gives you a better chance of becoming a Vine member.

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. 

I have only ever reached out to 1 or 2 companies that I can remember. I get about 1 offer a day now, so I don’t really have that much time to request more. And it is always via the email address I have listed on my Amazon profile.

All of that said, the Echo is more than a music streamer, just as an iPhone is more than a telephone. The key is Alexa. She’s helpful, she’s capable and she’s mostly good at understanding what I’m asking of her, enough so to put her right on par with Apple’s Siri as far as virtual assistants go.

“amazon sponsored products review -how to get free products in exchange for an amazon review”

The issue isn’t a small one for Amazon and other e-commerce sites, which rely on honest feedback to help customers make informed decisions. Increasingly, younger buyers place a premium on “authenticity,” and sites that they perceive as providing false or biased information may not earn their repeat business. 

3. Always tell the truth! Brands need truthful people to evaluate their products. If you lie, companies will not know if they need to make any improvements to their products. Also, you can get yourself removed from their program, and not get paid.

There are good ways to operate other than what is the “Amazon” way and what has been done for the last 20 years. Hire people who have different backgrounds and different opinions to enhance the culture and add diversity of thought.

Do you think this is okay for me to say? I don’t want to blow my first shot at a review, but I don’t want to commit to misleading anyone either. Fortunately, the product has a bunch of good reviews as of now, and it’s inexpensive. So for the price, I’m sure there will be redeeming qualities. But still….

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.

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 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.

This review program is for more than just Amazon reviews. Sellers can request you post to “websites, social boards, blogs, so forth”. There is even mention of getting paid (only) in their FAQs. Available for reviewers in USA.

Over the past 3 years, I have signed up for dozens of these product testing programs listed below, receiving well over a hundred products for free. Furthermore, I have scoured the web looking for secret VIP product tester lists for companies and brands. And, because we send thousands of people to these sites each month, some of these companies asked us to help launch them by including them on this list.

Call up any established product at Adagio Teas, for example, and you’ll see hundreds, if not thousands, of reviews. This is due in part to the fact that customers are rewarded five loyaltypoints for each review written.

Melinda, Always submit your text review first. They are approved quicker than reviews with images/videos. After it has successfully posted (check your Profile area to see which ones are complete or watch for the email) go back and Edit your review to include the pictures/video. Right under the Text/Comment field, on the right there is a button that says Upload , it is to the left of the Submit button. Hit Upload and browse to your files. If you have a video, do that before single images. Uploading a video can take a while, a blue progress bar under the Video icon will show you your status. While that is uploading you can add your pictures. When they are all uploaded, hit Submit.

Really, thank you so much. I’ve just managed to order for a review a “Revision & Exam Success Hypnosis CD”, hopefully this will help give my 13 year old some tips. Again, another product that I would never purchase off my own back. I’m loving this reviewing lark 🙂

I’ll admit it. Shopping for a personal tank can be a bit daunting. Many times in the past I’ve purchased overpriced, so-called “battle tanks”, then driven them into battle only to be wrecked in ten minutes by the first blow off of some insurgents home-made morter.

So yes, there is no substitute for good old fashioned proofreading. But I have been very impressed with how smart Grammarly is, and how many intuitive changes it suggests. Suggesting that it’s developed with some serious AI, far beyond anything I’ve ever found in Microsoft Office, Adobe, iOffice etc.

The only sites that I know of that give free kids stuff are the ones that giveaway baby stuff like diapers. I have heard of people who contact toy companies directly and were able to get free toys for their kids to “test”. Other than that, I don’t know of any. I’ll update this page if I find any.

However, sometimes a seller can request beforehand to see your Amazon profile before they approve you for a product. This is why we can’t stress the importance of leaving reviews, even though it’s not required.

I am very confused about your idea of contacting a seller directly to review products. For example, if a company such as XYZ, Inc., is selling a Farberware pan for 20.00. Why would XYZ, Inc. give me a product made by Farberware to review for free? A favorable review really only benefits Farberware as the item can be purchased anywhere. Moreover, many sellers on Amazon sell the Farberware item so there might be 5 sellers for that one item. Am I supposed to contact all 5 sellers? What are their incentives to give me the pan for free when buyers can go to another seller and buy it? Lastly, many of the sellers on Amazon are amazon. I certainly cant ask Amazon to give me a product to review.

Just as a new car loses value as soon as it’s driven off the lot, new products also lose value after a customer opens them and then returns them to the store. That’s where Blinq.com comes in. The site partners with retailers to sell discounted items to customers who don’t mind minor signs of use or the fact that the packaging has been opened. 

And it doesn’t even need to be as complicated as that. A video went viral earlier this year purporting to show a click farm in China, with thousands of phones dedicated to inflating the scores of mobile apps. Ooi says similar operations exist, based mainly in China and Eastern Europe, to do the same for Amazon reviews.

Now this is certain a strange product. It’s just a pen, but it’s bizarrely advertised towards women. Bic’s product description reds: “A beautifully smooth ball pen designed specifically for women. The pink barrel has a great floral design that continues onto the metal cone. Super smooth Easy Glide ink & a cushioned grip make writing with this pen ultra comfortable!”

RateItAll is one of the most popular review sites. You can write reviews about everything, and I mean everything! Toys, Local bars and restaurants, games, products, people, places, books, music, movies, celebrities, dogs, poems, art, games, travel…. RateItAll is very unique compere to other review sites, in a sense that reviews are written in the form of bullet pointed lists about a topic, where everyone can share their opinions about it. You get 50% of the revenue generated by ads displayed nest to your reviews.

The comments are interesting but most are incorrect if they believe that all discounted reviews are shill. I just received a request from an Amazon partner to do discounted item (for my honest revie). I though,t well if they think they are buying stars from me they are very wrong. I have no incentive to give bad or good reviews artificially. I don’t get anything extra. So people that paint a negative brush are quite wrong. It matters more to me to be honest because I buy items there at full price and don’t want to be fooled. Think about this too. Send it back. It’s easy as that. It’s a pain, but the situation isn’t all fake.. Common sense tells you that Amazon would nosedive.if this was the case.

They have a large marketplace of products that are free and heavily discounted, and has a search/filtering mechanism to make it easier to find product you like. Available to reviewers in USA, UK, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Spain, France, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico.

Btw product testing is legit I got a polaroid camera and the film with it from them and all you have to do is write a review and they will leave you alone unless you enter another one but it’s legit and awesome.

Tracy, there is no telling when they will get back to you. I’d imagine it all depends on how busy they are and whether or not they have an upcoming test. I would wait a few weeks and then try to contact them. Good luck.

An avid fan of the original E.V.O. Search For Eden, Spore is a wonderful game, that just doesn’t work well for later models of Windows unfortunately. Despite filtering through forums for solutions, nothing ever let me play this game again.

Other categories, like mobile, change quite a bit as new phones seem to be announced all the time, usually just a few days after you’ve already upgraded. You can bet we will update those product groups faster and more frequently.

I thought I’d share one more piece of advice that I have regarding becoming a reviewer. It makes sense to me that companies prefer reviews that are more or less grammatically correct and don’t contain errors. I’m a writer, and I’m still prone to mistakes just like anyone else. However, I discovered and now use an extension called Grammarly, which you download and works with your browser (I use it with Chrome, and I presume it works with others, but maybe it doesn’t).

“amazon product review articles +review products for free on amazon”

This is one of the first review sites I have come across that charges a monthly subscription fee. If you feel you are having trouble getting products from other sites, this site’s fee just may keep the pool of reviewers down to a more manageable sum.

I am an Amazon seller and I need you to help me evaluate a product. I will send the coupon code to you for Discount. Can you give us a good review which not less than 300 characters and enclosed 2-3 pieces of product pictures?

I would love to be a reviewer. I have been a member of Amazon since 2003. Love the fact that they have so much to offer. Everything from Lawn mower parts to computers, books, music etc. I have never been disappointed in an Amazon product.

Personally, my favorite reviewers are the Vine reviewers that are also top reviewers. I love it when they mention other products in the same category they have used, and state what the advantages are. It’s nice to have a group of people out there that have tried 6 different brands of (vacuum, printer, slowcooker, router, dishtowel) in 2 years and can help you make a good decision or answer questions on items that are just hitting the market.

This is the new an improved Review Kick program. They have a large marketplace of discoutned and free products to choose from. Available for reviewers in the USA (UK coming soon. Sign up to be notified.)

No. Members are not paid to participate in the program or to write reviews. Members will receive free product in exchange for writing reviews. There is no pressure or expectation to write positive reviews, and negative reviews do not affect membership in the program.

Just FYI-ing here but I agree with Kim I have tried Uberzon over the past month ans the same thing, Don’t know if Kim noticed but they were doing a thing for hyperallergenic bed covers in all sizes, My daughter and I both have year round allergies so I was so excited to try this, and when I used the link it said coupon invalid, but when I went to the amazon link provided it clearly said how many were available in each size and there were plenty, so that was kind of a sour taste left behind, and elitedeals, click on the e-mail link and scroll everything is sold out. Like I said not complaining just FYI-ing for any newbies, but I did see a lot of new ones on this updated list and TY so much, I signed up for them all, I will weed out the junkies and get back to everyone 🙂

Thank you Tristan. I have another question. I had this supplement which I rated 5 stars. In their description, and even the title states “made with extracts”. It bugged me that in the ingredient list is states 1000mg of powder. I researched this, and read extracts from this supplement are shown as concentrations or percentage of anthocyanins. Dosages are between 10-100mgs. Also their photo shows it as 100% organic, which the label I received doesn’t show this. This is clearly deceiving sales practices. People are being lied to. Will it hurt me if I rated this product a 1? I’m I setting myself to be attacked by getting not helpful feedbacks? I don’t know what to do. Currently there isn’t any 1 or 2 star reviews. I would appreciate your advice. Thank you.

The new case, however, does not specify the identities of the defendants, but instead names anonymous individuals known as “John Does 1-1114.” Amazon tells the court it will add their names at a later date once the company identifies who they are (presumably by asking internet providers to identify their IP addresses).

Despite all this, it’s usually pretty simple to keep getting deals as long leave decent, honest reviews. I haven’t had a problem with them yet. Just be sure to snag deals quickly before they run out.

Since Amazon has basically outlawed the free-product-for-a-review practice, I actually found a different way to make product reviews work. On my site I did some research about the off-Amazon reviews I’ve done and how the product’s sales have increased as a result.

I encourage the online retailers that I work with to only accept reviews from product owners, but not all can do it. Retailers that sell online and also run brick and mortar stores sometimes don’t have their in-store point-of-sale systems linked to their website and therefore can’t match up the shopper’s identity to verify the purchases.

As of now, the Echo is available in the US, Germany and the UK. One of the challenges in launching the Echo in a range of countries is making sure Alexa understands different accents and knows when words are used in different contexts.

Once you’ve got your list, go back to the boilerplate form letter you were using for the Amazon top reviewers. Tweak it a little, making sure to reference things spotted on the blogger’s pages, and adding any commonalities. Email them (if contact info is available on their site) or use the contact form on their site if available.

As I said in another comment, Vine Voices are selected by Amazon based on the qualities of the reviews the people have written. I see nothing wrong with it; I get free books via NetGalley, which I review because I love books. If I had paid for them, I’d review them in exactly the same way.

UK based sellers on Amazon UK seem to be way behind U.S. and Chinese sellers as they likely don’t realize that they can send their products to reviewers in exchange for reviews. From all the products he reviews, only 0.5-1.0% are UK-based.

I just bought a new (to me) book called Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely. My purchase decision was based on its reviews. Specifically the quantity. My irrational (yet predictable) conclusion to buy the book was based on its seemingly endless number of Amazon reviews. The irony.

I am in a program with Bestbuy. Bestbuy tech insider i think its called. I got invited back in February and I don’t know how. I typically do write some reviews on Bestbuy at times. I typically write a review if i like or hate the item enough to make my opinions known.

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!

You know that review site we have all been looking for? The one that has a close relationship with reviewers and offers high end products for review? Yeah? Well, after talking with the owner, it sounds like Review Directory is that review site! Available to product testers and bloggers in the UK, USA, France, germany, Canada, Israel, Spain, and Italy.

I’m inclined to agree with you. Fakespot gave the Amazon page below an “A”, but all 17 reviews are “Verified purchases” by common named people giving generic praise and all but one have 5 stars – most are written within weeks of each other. Now, this product may very well be that good, but doesn’t any of that strike someone as pretty suspicious?

Lowercase Alpha is looking for beta testers for smartphone apps. They send you apps that haven’t launched yet so you can give them feedback. Available worldwide (though I believe you need a North American phone number to sign up.)

Each day, millions of consumers use Amazon’s websites to assist with their  purchasing decisions. In order to make those decisions more informed, Amazon publishes customer reviews of products and services available on Amazon.com. Amazon pioneered customer reviews 20 years ago and is now home to hundreds of millions of unique reviews. Reviews provide a forum for sharing authentic feedback about products and services – positive or negative. Amazon does not remove reviews because they are critical; Amazon believes all helpful information can inform its customers’ buying decisions. As long as they abide by Amazon’s Customer Review Guidelines, Amazon’s customers can review and rate products or services available on Amazon’s websites. Honest and unbiased reviews allow customers to trust that they can shop with confidence on Amazon.com; reviews also help fulfill Amazon’s mission to be Earth’s most customer-centric company. In short, Amazon takes the credibility of its customer reviews very seriously. 3.

Among all the different types of marketing inserts, like thank you cards, discounts, and cross-sells, we are interested in asking for a product review. It shouldn’t be the only thing you care about, but it should be your main goal for the purposes of this article. And since Amazon doesn’t forbid this type of messaging, you should take advantage of it.

This is a creative, visually impressive, fun game for kids – I think the bad reviews are by gamers who play through as fast as possible in order to “beat the game” – but Spore is not that type of game. There are so many different possible combinations of creatures to be custom designed & evolved from a cell. Once evolved to a complex creature they become civilized and you take them though stages of civilization from tribal all the way up to space. Along the way you also custom create villages, buildings, vehicles, industry, etc for your creatures. You can conquer neighboring villages if you like a little bit of battle. My son is 10 & discovered this game from popular gaming youtubers, who also rated the game highly. The limited install issue is not that big of a deal – you’re probably not going to need to install it more than 3 times & it’s not an expensive game to get if you do.

I’m a top 500 reviewer on Amazon UK, and a Vine Voice on Amazon US (though I’ve never gotten anything from Vine, because I don’t live in the US), and I like posting reviews. Some are reviews I’ve also posted on my website, and some are for items I’ve gotten for free from manufacturers. But all are honest, and are not influenced by the fact the products are free. I’m a freelance journalist, and review hardware and software as part of my job, so I’m well aware of the ethical questions involved in reviewing. Whenever I review something sent to me by a vendor, I note it in the review.

The truth is that once your labor of love becomes available to the masses, most of what happens next is beyond your control. Your friends and family may have raved about your talent, but will unbiased readers feel the same way?

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.

BzzAgent is my favorite!  I get so many free stuff to test that I’ve lost count!!!  Great company!  Doesn’t pay, but I love getting so much stuff each month!!!!!! 💰 Pays by MyPoints rewards to redeem for free merchandise, gift cards 

Hey Guys, I found a site better than most of the sites listed here. http://www.dealgogogo.com. Same discount exchange for honest review concept. They have thousands of goodies online, and seems they always send you the promo code right away. Good for starter like me. It is very difficult to get a code from Amzreviewtrader.

Think about that. How can you give an honest review to a product that is filling a need that you don’t have. If you don’t need a microwave, you’ll be less likely to find a flaw with one given to you for free. “Works like a microwave, 5 STARS!”

“amazon product review discount free products for amazon reviews”

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.

The entire sale is completed through Amazon and you enter a discount or promo code on the checkout screen to get the product for a rock-bottom price. You will still be responsible for any shipping costs.

And closing things out, we have this Asfour Crystal Tut Anhk Amon Chair. According to the product description, the chair is made with some of the finest crystal in the world and took about 630 hours to build. When it was available (apparently someone actually bought this thing) it ran at about $140,000.

#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.

“I’ve been using AMZRC for the last couple of months and initially I wasn’t sure of what results I would get because there’s so much competition out there with similar review websites. However I was pleasantly surprised! Initially I got a great deal as a seller because I signed up for the annual membership which allows me to post deals for my Amazon products every 3 days. I had amazing results such as an increase in sales as well as loads of genuine 5 star reviews for my product. This worked wonders for my Amazon listing and my product was rated top 20 in its category. Thanks to the team at AMZRC you guys have great support and I’m loving the new website.”

Thrilled to see a new update. I’m considering the upgrade to the LG OLED, but the price for the 65″ model is a bit daunting. Given my room size (small), the 55″ is an option. I recall in the previous incarnation of this article there were some concerns about display quality / panel in the 55″ Vizio P-series sets vs. the 65″ ones, such that you weren’t able to recommend the smaller TVs even though the 65″+ models were excellent.

When you give shoppers all of the information they’re looking for — including ratings reviews — they’re more likely to convert. At PowerReviews, we’ve found that when a product without reviews adds one or more reviews, the conversion rate for that product increases by 65%, on average.

Wow, uh, I’m reading the comments here and they are not like the usual MUO type of comments. They all seem sort of bot-ish right down to the names — “Jodie Jones, “Betty Booker,” etc. And 125? How often does any MUO article get that many comments? Something just doesn’t seem right…

It is not unethical, just stick to reviewing what you do know about the product. Everyone has limited experience with products to some degree, just stick to your experience and the facts. You don’t have to mention you lost it.

Ciao is one of the biggest paid survey sites, in addition to that Ciao also pays its members to write reviews on verity of subjects, from electronics and CDs to books, restaurants and anything in between. You earn money every time your review is red or rated by other members. Once you have £5 in your account, you can request a payment.

When they DELIBERATELY AND WITH FULL KNOWLEDGE OF THE ENSUING CONSEQUENCES eliminated their 20–word minimum rule for product reviews, this opened up the floodgates for the cheats to post MILLIONS of fake product reviews.

It’s worth noting at this stage that not every user of product testing sites gets sent something to test. This is because there are 1000s of users and they simply can’t afford to send out 1000+ free TVs for example. But they do say, if you don’t buy a ticket you can’t win the raffle…

I was a member of Walmart’s Spark Reviewer program, which they have just announced (via an email to the Spark Reviewers) that they are ending. I really enjoyed getting the free products (f.ex., things as inexpensive as a new variety of Triscuits or as fancy as a new convertible laptop onto which I was instructed to download Windows 10 the day it was released), and would love to continue doing something similar for another website’s program (such as Amazon Vine). Are there other programs similar to Amazon Vine or Walmart Spark Reviewer out there, and if so, would experience as a Walmart Spark Reviewer be at all helpful in getting an invitation to participate?

Bzzagent does not pay you. Not sure where you got your information, but it is product testing plain and simple. I myself have done several campaigns for them, so I can speak from experience. Also, you can check their website.

It’s tough making your living online – the web has a way of bringing out the worst in people as many users hide under the internet’s veil of anonymity to spread slander they’d never dream of voicing IRL. It’s not a matter of if you’ll ever get a bad review – it’s just a matter of when.

Start reviewing big ticket items you own that are in the categories you wish to be asked to review more items. Prove to Sellers that you can write a review that helps their sales. DO NOT inflate a rating to 5-stars in the hopes that it attracts big ticket items—this is counterproductive to what our community is here to do for the customer that relies on it to make a purchase.

Having said all this, unless you currently sell a product that’s going viral or has been seen on Shark Tank, garnering customer reviews is not easy. There are, however, many simple and affordable ways to entice customers to tell the world what they think of the products they’ve bought.

“We do not incentivize positive star ratings, attempt to influence the content of reviews, or even require a review to be written,” explains Chee Chew, VP, Customer Experience at Amazon in an announcement about how Vine controls for bias. “And we limit the total number of Vine reviews that we display for each product,” he adds.

I hope you did what Tristan said! That was some good advice lol. I had a similar situation recently. My husband generally has a beard. He’ll shave in the summer sometimes, but he has facial hair. I was asked to review some “beard oil”, and jumped on it. I left the house to run errands, and called the hubby several hours later to chat. I mentioned to him over the phone that I’d gotten the beard oil for him to try, and he made a kind of strangled sound. He’d decided to shave. We laughed, and planned to just return the item at our own cost because crap happens. But I got lucky and have a teenager trying to grow out his facial hair. I also checked other ways to use the oil, and tried it as a moisturizer on my own skin.

I was so excited to receive my first request to review a product from a manufacturer. Then, I came across the line saying they expected it to be no less than four stars. I tend to be extremely honesty. If the product is worthy of 4 or 5 stars, I would give it. I’ll admit, I tend to keep 5 star reviews for extremely outstanding products. I do give them, but few products or books are perfect. Is asking for a 4 or 5 star rating consider normal and is it ethical?

Cool, glad to hear it! As for a list of sellers or contacts… no, I don’t think there is a public list. I can see that as being something that would be quickly abused, which may have something to do with no one publicizing it. A recent comment on this post mentioned “Genesis Reviewer Program, New Trent Pilot User Program, and Gmyle Lab”. I Googled them and came up some interesting programs to review beta and production products. Googling “Genesis Reviewer Program” will yield a good amount of companies since this seems to be a universal term for this sort of thing.

I wholeheartedly agree with Robert. There’s some fundimental ethical flaws with the vine program. It’s a selection bias. And as he mentioned 99% of the 4-5 stars reveiws will be from vine members and the ratings below from customers who purchased the product. Amazon’s interest to list positive reviews are within their own financial gain (a lot of products are direct from China, so the cost to profit ratio is exceedingly high). I’ve noticed now that when looking at products to review the negative reviews to get a “real” view of the product.

I have managed to review and get some of the “not so mainstream” products here. This practice is a departure of other review web sites that so incline to push the usual types of merchandise before you. And they are big on supplements as well.

Amazon is a systemic, fraudulent, corrupt company. Bezos is aware of all of the issues that the programmers utilize to maximize profit. None are “mistakes” or errors. Doesn’t anyone realize that Amazon makes $$ from EVERY item? So sellers that “ship” from China with goods never coming, to blocking sellers accounts and holding their money, under the guise of protecting the consumer, to not really caring about fraudulent reviews (bad reviews mean the item may not sell), to the most outrageous and systemic gravy train there is = subscriptions! Going down card after card until something is approved, singing people up for “trials” knowing that they already had one, so it’s charged right away, to allowing children to sign up for subscriptions, to IMDB – the company is the devil reincarnate. When will someone sue the bastards?

Hi I’m Sean Work and I invented an espresso machine that can grind and brews fresh espresso drinks in your car so you can have uber-fresh lattes on the way to work. I would like to send you my mini machine so you can try it out.

For the last 3 to 4 years I have been a Professional NewEgg “EggXpert” Product Reviewer. I got this gig by honestly posting reviews AND comments about any product that I either owned or had an opportunity to use and/or try. After a while NewEgg Contacted me and said that they had gotten so many “GOOD” comments about both my reviews and/or comments that they’d like me to become part of the team. I then asked them what was involved and they told me ALL they wanted someone who would post HONEST reviews about a product. To this I said YES, sign me up.

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.

Perhaps I’m being skeptical so I copied the information (I left out seller information and link). Perhaps it’s just a language barrier and they were telling me 4 other 5 stars are the best, not that they expect 4 or 5 stars.

“amazon beauty products review |how to get products to review on amazon”

Lol. I got my Vine membership taken away for writing an honest review. I agree 100 percent. And just tried to review an item I purchased last week and amazon rejected it at 1 star, and truthful. I am thinking of returning, try more stars, and lie and I bet my new review will be accepted.

To take advantage of the discounts, you apply for a specific product and the seller will email you the discount code if approved. Reviews are optional to reflect the changes in Amazon’s terms and conditions regarding customer feedback in exchange for discounted and free products.

This program uses the power of your social media and blog to help spread the word about new and upcoming products. Amazon review not required. Available for product testers in in the UK, USA, Canada, Japan, Germany, Spain, Italy and France.

Childish, my foot. If you don’t think others are jealous of those who get things for free, you have limited knowledge of human nature. No one said the program does not have problems. It’s certainly not a perfect program free of problem reviews. But look at all the non-Vine reviews at Amazon–you think they are all wonderful and honest simply because the reviewer may have paid for the item? No, they are not. Personally, I like to think most readers of reviews are intelligent enough to tell a good review from a bad one; an honest one from a fake one; and who certainly don’t simply look at how many stars the reviewer gave, as opposed to reading the review in a critical manner.

I recommend always sticking to your guns and only dealing with people who you believe won’t ask something shady of you. There are plenty of new products coming out every day so you won’t be missing out on anything. You’ll just feel better in the long run by keeping your integrity.

There are honest sellers who do offer items for review, but these sites who do search manipulation etc are not where people should be reviewing. They’re directly violating amazon’s TOS. Go ahead and contact amazon with a few of these site links and ask if its ok to participate with them. They will tell you NO. The honest sellers typically ship the items directly to the reviewer – TOTALLY FREE OF CHARGE – and Amazon is not involved in the transaction at all.

Megan, nice tips. couldn’t agree more that customer reviews and testimonials are definitely on the top when it comes to helping businesses to sell more. expanding more on your #9 need for name and picture for testimonials, you might be interested to see my recent post on why is important – http://customertestimonials.wordpress.com/2014/02/01/best-practices-fake-it-till-you-make-it-does-not-apply-here

Please get K. Ellington to stop continually harassing me for the honest 1 star review I posted on Amazon. It’s an honest review, and for a product that even the Seller has removed from purchase because of its potentially toxic ingredients! Hopefully your entire business does not run on bullying, and it is just this one person.

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.

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  

Based on all the great feedback and comments, I am looking to spin up a website for reviewers where we can all get together and learn from each other, share stories and information. Does anyone have interest in something like that?

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.

I thought I’d share one more piece of advice that I have regarding becoming a reviewer. It makes sense to me that companies prefer reviews that are more or less grammatically correct and don’t contain errors. I’m a writer, and I’m still prone to mistakes just like anyone else. However, I discovered and now use an extension called Grammarly, which you download and works with your browser (I use it with Chrome, and I presume it works with others, but maybe it doesn’t).

Chattykathy16, I’m not sure how much Amazon is still promoting the Vine Review program. I haven’t received a listening of books from them in over five months. I do know that in order to be considered for the program that you have to write lots of product reviews for the site.

I signed up with I Love to Review to get free (and highly discounted) products with the express understanding that I would review it honestly on Amazon within 72 hours. There is also the VIP Power Club I don’t currently know of any others.

EtekCitizen likes to give away their products free. The only catch is that all products being featured are just from one particular brand: EtekCitizen. Due to this limitation, I would often browse the products first at Amazon, instead of their site. If there is any item from them that catches my attention, I would then go back to EtekCitizen for a review opportunity.

3. The pot of gold. Visit the Amazon page for the first competitor that you identified in Step 2. Now, near the top left of the page, click on the link to the customer reviews. This will list every review the competing product has received. To make this process easy to track, click on the option that lets you sort the reviews by “Newest First.” Now you will see the list of sorted reviews with the Amazon name or “Real Name” of each reviewer. Welcome to the pot of gold.

Soon after you get your first clients, you will get more Amazon reviews on social media from happy buyers and be able to secure your success in Amazon selling. Increase your profit and enjoy your growth!

In September of 2016, Noonan made a video showing that reviews with the “free or discounted” disclaimer in the text had much higher scores than reviews that didn’t. The video landed on the front page of Reddit. Within a few weeks of the video going viral, Amazon eliminated the ability for sellers to incentivize reviews through offering discounted or free products.

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.

Thanks for sharing your story. I have to say that I am surprised a 300-level reviewer isn’t getting bowled over by offers. I am at 1633 right now and I get at least one offer a day, sometimes up to 6-7 offers a day. I estimate I reject about 80% of them for numerous reasons.

Notice how all the reviews appeared within days of one another. They also reference the same key thing: the light on the cable. In fact, two of the three use the exact phrase “how bright the lights on the cable are.” That’s a good indication that something is sketchy. And although we don’t know what product the lawsuit’s example refers to, if the product’s manufacturer was brand-new and had a few hundred of these kinds of reviews within a few days, chances are good that the company paid for them in some way.

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.

As of May 6, users’ product reviews will be displayed on all eligible listings. A listing is reviewable if it is adopted to a product or is a multi-quantity listing. Not all multi-quantity listings are eligible. Sellers are not required to take any action. For more information please read eBay’s product review guidelines.

What’s slightly ironic about all of this is that Amazon made a major push at the end of last year to clean up its reviews system. Until October of 2016, Amazon reviews were glutted with reviews from what was informally known as Amazon review clubs. The review clubs worked like this: You’d sign up, get a free or heavily discounted product, whether it was an egg-cracker or a queen-size mattress, and in exchange you’d post a review. You just had to include words to the effect of “I received this product at a discount/for free in exchange for my honest review” somewhere in your review. It was an ideal ecosystem for many. Consumers got items on the cheap. Sellers got five-star reviews (the “honest” part was largely lip service; Ooi of Fakespot says anyone who didn’t post five-star reviews would quickly find themselves iced out of the review club). The person running the review club could charge sellers for access to customers.

Call up any established product at Adagio Teas, for example, and you’ll see hundreds, if not thousands, of reviews. This is due in part to the fact that customers are rewarded five loyaltypoints for each review written.

If the reviewer did not purchase from you, unfortunately there is no way for you to contact him privately. However, it is still possible to leave a comment on Amazon. In fact, Review Central enables you to post a comment for a specific review on Amazon immediately instead of searching and browsing for that reviewed product page on your own.

Your link goes to some funky text-only page. The original link is—Milwaukee 2621-20 M18 Sawzall Reciprocating Saw – tool Only – – Amazon.com. Fakespot gave it an A—Fakespot | Milwaukee 2621 20 M18 Sawzall Reciprocating Saw Tool Only Fake Review Analysis, and ReviewMeta gave it a PASS—Milwaukee 2621-20 M18 Sawzall Reciprocating Saw – tool Only Amazon Review Analysis: ReviewMeta.com. You really have to wonder about mostly 5 star reviews and a few 4 star ones and no lower ratings. And the one-liners that comprise the majority. There is even a one-worder! Frankly I always look for the most critical reviews. I never read 4 and 5 star reviews. I assume most of them are fake or by naive star-struck buyers who haven’t spent any time with the tool.

I’ve been a Vine reviewer for a while and I agree with your concerns. The biggest one in terms of long-term use is that you’re required to post a review within thirty days (used to be ninety, I think). I update reviews months or years later as wear and tear or faults start to appear, but usually by that point a concensus has been established and helpfulness votes cast.

The Chinese are, in this respect, reprehensible. A while ago, students at a Chinese high school rioted because the administrators had severely cracked down on cheating. Why were the students mad? Because they claimed that they would be at a severe competitive disadvantage with the other schools, where the cheating was left intact. This is the poisoned fruit that falls from the tree down to us.
