“amazon how to review products _amazon product review canada”

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.

After initially debuting as an invite-only beta-gadget for $99 (I was one of the lucky ones who bought in at that price), the Amazon Echo now retails for nearly twice that: $180. That price seemed fair to me when the Echo was a shiny, new curiosity, but I’m not sure that’s still the case now that the Alexa lineup — and the competition — has matured. Take the Echo Dot: It’s just as smart and as capable as the full-sized Echo at less than a third of the cost, and unlike the original Echo, you can connect it with the external speakers of your choice. It seems like the best Alexa starting point by a considerable margin. And though it’s still playing catch-up, the well-reviewed Google Home smart speaker costs just $130.

Approach with extreme caution. The next step is deciding whether or not to respond to a piece of negative feedback. Here’s where things get tricky, because the situation can change depending on whether you are an Amazon reseller dealing with negative seller feedback, or whether the problem is a negative product review.

Thank you for the clarification DeJay, and sorry for seeming so offended. In truth, I may have been a tad bit reactionary, which is soooo unlike me and now I’m embarrassed… Regardless of my unintended act of muddying the waters, I do see your point and agree. Admittedly, I sometimes wonder where the hell some of those suggestions “based on my browsing history” come from. An algorithm which is far beyond my capacity to understand, no doubt.

Some of these Amazon reviewers make a living doing this – it’s serious business, and some may do as many as 100 reviews a month. Be prepared to offer your product for free in exchange for a review – depending on your product, this could be a pricey expenditure, so you’ll have to decide if this is a strategy you can afford. 

Experienced sellers understand the importance of tracking product reviews. Studies have shown that buyers pay close attention to what other people have to say about the quality of an item. Additionally, Amazon uses product reviews in its algorithm for determining which items appear first in search results.

The best way to find UK reviewers is to go to Amazon UK and search for products that are similar to the one(s) you want reviewed. Look for the most recent well-written reviews and click through to their profile pages until you find ones with email addresses listed. Reach out to them that way.

I think a MUCH bigger problem then dishonest Vine reviews are fake reviewers that are either the manufacturer/seller reviewing the product for themselves or a marketing company or private contractor hired to leave fake positive reviews. I have left reviews and pointed out that the others were fake and Amazon DID block my review even though I left a totally legit review. I will categorically never buy a product that has fake reviews.

Defendants are in the business of providing such fake reviews. Each of the John Doe defendants in this action utilizes the website Fiverr.com (“Fiverr”) to sell Amazon reviews. Fiverr is a global online marketplace offering tasks and services,  beginning at a cost of $5 per job performed, from which it gets its name. The site is

Also, check out ILoveToReview.com to sign up to be a reviewer. As mentioned before, there are a lot of companies collecting reviewers to send products to. I use and recommend ILoveToReview.com. Just be sure to do your due diligence before signing up for any reviewer program, and NEVER give them any credit card or personal/financial info.

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 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.

I remember receiving a product to test from Product Report Card testing a food product for a couple of weeks, and I was paid $150 doing it!  They are a high ranking panel.   Also, they have offers to join high paying focus groups! 💰 Pays by Cash, PayPal, Amazon Gift Cards, and Merchandise

I am a BzzAgent, and it took about a month before I got anything to try even after filling out what seemed like a hundred surveys. Now, I am bombarded with products and having a blast. Please hang in. I almost gave up on them, but I’m glad I didn’t.

Reward those who review. For example, you could provide every client who gives you a review a 10% off coupon. And you don’t even need to let them know this is coming their way. The surprise factor will add an extra bit of “wow” to their experience.

Another Amazon review site with a wide product selection is Product Elf. There’s a little bit of everything to try out here from the latest fidget spinner, kitchen gadget, or beauty accessory. This is also another good site if you like testing products that normally have a normal retail value of $5 or less.

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!

If you are selling a book, then perhaps even insert a link (or short description) on How To write a (book)review. If you have just one or two reviews, then insert the topic as a quote and just ask your customers if they agree.

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!

Due to Amazon’s latest policy change regarding product reviews, many of these sites have been forced to change direction. Some still continue to operate but under different rules, and some are completely halting their program. I will do my best to keep up and update this page. Please let us know in the comments if you do find changes on any of these sites.

The most clear-eyed insight about the current state of Amazon reviews came Pat Lum, who currently runs Wyatt Deals, which sells items on deep discounts in order to juice sales, which in turn helps sellers rank higher in Amazon’s internal search engine — an entirely different and equally fierce battleground for sellers. Before he ran Wyatt Deals, however, he co-founded HonestFew, an Amazon review club that was made obsolete after Amazon declared incentivized reviews dead last October.

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 🙂

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.

As for what star to choose, go off of Amazon’s suggestions. When you hover over a star, they help you with a sentiment such as “I hate it”, “it’s okay”, and “I love it” to name a few. Think about the product as a whole, and match how you feel to the corresponding star. If it’s really “I hate it”, then select a 1-star. Don’t worry about what other reviewers chose or wrote. They have their own rationale for their review. You review for you.

Amy, for shoes, companies like Nike do have product testing, but they send you shoes all the time. And some require you send it back after a few weeks of testing. I found 6 of them that include Nike and Reebok. Here is the link to my post: http://moneypantry.com/get-free-shoes/

I have joined and had success with a few of these except EDC Elite Deal Club,, things were ok then I was asked to review products I had not asked for, the customer service was beyond dire. They are now asking for your financial information,,, be aware people- you pay via Amazon not these sites,,, Elite Deal Club has no reason to demand you personal financial information- leave well alone.

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?

The immediate benefit of reviews is that they can make your future customers feel that much more confident. The more reviews you have, the more convinced a shopper will be that they’re making the right decision.

Thank you Tristan, your blog is great and very insightful. It is very helpful for someone like me who is just getting started. I made it onto the top 10000 reviewer list hopefully it helps. I am reviewing for a few companies and love it. Thank you for the tip about the Genesis Reviewer Programs I have contacted a couple of them.

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.

It’s been a while, but you might remember that this ridiculous wolf-themed T-shirt became an ironic best-seller on Amazon back in 2009, paving the way for countless product reviews. I mean, it’s not every day that a t-shirt warrants its own Wikipedia page.  With so many great reviews to choose from, it was almost impossible to narrow things down to just one representative example. That said, this one here, which was one of the first to grace the product’s Amazon page, might just do the trick.

Influenster: Influenster is looking for social media influencers to spread the word about products that range anywhere from single cup coffee makers to the newest cosmetics. You can get one item to review or a box of products to review.

Keep it short and to the point. I’v had about 25% success with this, to be honest. I believe it has to do with the fact that Sellers have an agenda and want/need certain reviewed. What I pick might not fall in line with that, or have a lot of reviews already.

I’m finding almost as many paid false negative reviews against competing products on Amazon and other similar shopping sites as I do positive. I no longer bother with reading anything but the 3 star reviews on products I’m considering to purchase.

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.

This tank R-O-C-K-S! Literally- the 400-watt sound-system keeps me rockin like a crazy man as I’m dishing out justice commando style. Wow. I just can’t say enough.

A review site that has been around for about 2 years, and run by AMZ.one, a toolset made for helping Sellers. Has a huge marketplace of products to choose from, sortable by country, price and expiry. Available for reviewers in USA, UK, Canada, China, Italy, India, Germany, Japan, Spain and France.

Just as you can buy almost anything on Amazon, it is also possible to get almost anything for free or nearly free. Whether you want to join a program with flexible shopping options or only want to join one that offers products for one particular brand, there is an Amazon review site for you.

Thanks for your comment, Elizabeth. I am actually a member of that site, but it’s is only for Amazon products. I am actually working on creating a list of sites that give you free or discounted Amazon products in exchange for reviews.

Hey Shannon! I would say, always complete the surveys the survey panels will send you to your email box. Some surveys will end up being a product test for you to do at home. Some people get a lot of products to test and some do not, it all depends on what the company is looking for to review their products.

Pick a seller (if the product has more than one) to send your request to. Try to find the sellers email on their page, or thought Google or Facebook. If you can’t, just message them on Amazon by clicking “Ask a question” on their page.

“amazon products review sites +write review amazon products”

In case people are not aware as of October 2016 it is no longer allowed that free or discounted products are reviewed on Amazon. Plenty of people still lie and do it but it is a violation of the TOS and those that do it dismiss the FTC disclosure regulations as well.

Shannon Quinn is a writer, entrepreneur, and legal student living in and around both the Greater Philadelphia and New York areas. She spends a great deal of her time discovering creative ways to save money so that she can live comfortably on a small budget.

So it’s easy to see why reviews can make or break an Amazon seller’s business. And that is why companies give away their products for free or with deep discounts to shoppers in exchange for their reviews.

At No Kidding Coupon, my coupon to get a product did not work on amazon. I also was unable to reset my password when I had trouble logging into their site. Their Facebook page doesnt have activity since 2014 but I did post a question there anyway hoping to get a reply.

I have tried to use a few of these sites. My favorites are “AMZ Review Trader” and “Review Kick”. They are slow to approve initially but once I got established with some good reviews on a few deals the better deals started coming through to me, and faster.

I just wanted to ask you a question about the l oreal product testing. Do you need to pay taxes on the gifts or products they send you? I recently moved to the US and I have no idea how the system works.

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

I have been going to freebies.com ,free samples, an a few others. I click on it an it takes you to candles toilet paper, socks, shoes,tide etc.. You have to answers dumb questions to really never get the free items they show you are they really legit. They also show free kitchen things can never get them. There are alot of sites like this. Would love to try shoes an other things. Please help.

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.

Sure, to send you products they need your address, but normally when you sign up for this kind of sites, they let you sign up with an email and password, then you can log in and fill out your profile.

Great post, Megan. We share many of these tips with enterprise software vendors to help them drive high-quality reviews on our site, G2Crowd.com. We’ve seen contests and rewards work well for vendors, but as Anupam and Julie pointed out, remaining authentic and transparent is important to ensuring that the reviews are trusted and truly representative of the customer experience. Reviews like these are both a great way for customers to share their feedback and an invaluable resource for vendors.

, King County Case No. 15-2-08579-4 SEA (filed April 8, 2015). Most of those sites have since closed and Amazon has identified and taken action against sellers who used those sites to obtain fake reviews. Amazon is continuing those efforts with this lawsuit against the individuals who provide those fake reviews.

The point of the Vine program – which vendors pay to be included in – is to get reviews when something comes out, rather than waiting for them to aggregate organically. I can understand why some vendors want to get their products noticed like that.

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.

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 

Super shady, we know. And Amazon has a history of trying hard to deal with offenders and shut them down. In fact, in April, Amazon sued another round of companies that are accused of selling fraudulent reviews. But by the time those companies are caught, their clients have already made a bunch of sales, and the fraudulent reviewers will likely pop up again under new names to repeat the process.

#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.

Got some word back on this from my UK reviewer contact. The gist of it is he would only ever recommend a site that he had used or someone he knows and trusts has used. Problem is that he, nor other reviewers he knows, are using one. They rely totally on Sellers reaching out to them via their Amazon profiles.

Be aware that Amazon is cracking down on these things! We have had several customers who have left reviews that Amazon either chose not to post or pulled down after they were posted. We are talking about verified purchases too! After contacting Amazon, they could not give any real solid answers as to why, and that the customer should contact them directly. They are really difficult to work with as a seller!

As mentioned in that post you are referring to, there are also a few other shoe companies, like Nike, that have product testing that US residents can participate in. Have you tried signing up for any of those?

You may also want to try using one of the many campaign companies to help you get reviews. Companies like Honest Few, I Love to Review, and Reviews for Free (to name a few) can help get your product in front of reviewers and reviews posted with in a week or so thereafter. It’s far easier than doing it yourself.

New offers are emailed directly to your inbox every day and you can also browse the savings on their website. Other websites might offer more products on a daily basis, but, seems to offer quality items from a variety of product categories.

“amazon product review deals +amazon sponsored products review”

Hello. I recently came upon your blog a couple of days ago and I was very impressed with it. I decided to give Survey Junkie a try on a whim. I was able to redeem $10 amazon so far. My question is this: How long did it take for you to receive your

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.

Your invitation is dated 12 Nov, 2015. I just checked your web site and your are still accepting applicants for the wait list … Are you really just aggregating a list of names for marketing purposes?

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.

If you are selling a book, then perhaps even insert a link (or short description) on How To write a (book)review. If you have just one or two reviews, then insert the topic as a quote and just ask your customers if they agree.

The Vine program, and similar methods of eliciting feedback, give away products for free (or sell them at a deep discount) to potential customers vetted (by Amazon in the case of the Vine program) for the helpfulness of their reviews, in exchange for an “honest review.” While these sorts of reviews are far more ethical than paid-for reviews, they can also be a little problematic. Even if the way the review was obtained is disclosed on product pages, several aspects of the purchasing process don’t get considered as part of these programs.

This is a great article and as a person that does test sample products from amazon sellers I can say that I absolutely hate the fake reviews, it ruins the whole process. I take pride in my honest opinion and review of the products I test , I also update my review if something were to go wrong along the way with the item as well. Fake reviews just make it hard on those of us who are genuine and want to help the consumer get an idea of what they can expect from the product they’re looking at . I am one of the people that rely on word of mouth and honest reviews while shopping or looking at a business, it’s often what helps me decide .

Amazon is incredibly data driven and document heavy. Although those are not inherently bad things and can be good, they often keep the organization from seeing the big picture and balancing strategy with short-term numbers and reactions.

Well, there are cases when competitors are actually paying to peoples to leave negative feedback on other sellers which is definitely against the Amazon’s review policy. You can avoid negative reviews by tracking with Amazon negative reviews tracker tool such as AMZ Insight in order to instantly know whenever there’s a negative review arise on your listing.

In addition, starting May 6, product reviews will be available for all eligible listings. eBay sellers who previously opted out of product reviews on My eBay will be opted back into product reviews. If you opted out and want to opt in to take advantage of the benefits of product reviews before May 6, you can do so on My eBay.

We’re serious about editorial integrity. So much so, we keep our sales team and reviewers in separate buildings – in different states and in different time zones. Seriously! Once our reviews are complete and published, our sales staff pursues various means of developing revenue. That may include traditional advertising, sponsorships, lead generation or affiliate relationships.

Amazon says: “Be sincere: We welcome your honest opinion about the product or service. We do not remove reviews because they are critical. We believe all helpful information can inform our customers’ buying decisions.” Source.

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.

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.

This is my point! I receive notifications that my reviews are helpful, but I’m sure I don’t receive nearly as many as those who write entertaining reviews do. While I could make a conscious effort to make my reviews more entertaining, that’s not why I write reviews, and I’d rather write a honest, thorough review as a non-Vine member, then spend time making my reviews entertaining, in the hope I’ll receive a Vine invite.

These are the best Amazon review sites to from. As you will notice, there are many different sites to choose from and each one will have a different product selection to complement your shopping needs.

I’m a Viner who has gotten defective items and sent them back, or had companies simply replace them. I then comment in my reviews in updates how good or bad the customer service was about the matter. Like other Viners, I also often update my reviews when items don’t perform as they should or when their performance exceeds my expectations. It’s not at all rare for Viners to do those things.

When you give shoppers all of the information they’re looking for — including ratings and 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.

Reviews are associated with a specific product, ensuring a reliable and consistent user experience for buyers. Reviews written by eBay buyers have the added benefit of having the seller’s username associated with the review.

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.

Signed up for a few of these sites about two weeks ago. I have gotten some amazing products in to review, and have been pleased with every single item, so I gave each item a 4 or 5 star review. I am now reading all of the above comments about being banned from Amazon?! I would not want that to happen for sure. I am a little confused. I get emails from Amazon all the time to review products that I have purchased through them, at full cost, and have now started doing that also. I don’t see why Amazon has a problem with a review that I have left, especially since I am stating in the review that I got a promotional discount for my honest and unbiased review. Hopefully this will continue to work for me.

“amazon product review websites -amazon product review vs seller feedback”

We currently fully support the US and UK marketplaces with promotions and email campaigns. Jump Send email campaigns are also available for Canada, Mexico, Germany, France, Spain and Italy. More marketplaces are coming soon, we will notify all members when they are available.

Sounds about right (par for the course). Get an listed telephone number and then use the old one solely as an Amazon dedicated line, if the additional expense isn’t prohibitive. Also, naturally, now the vendor will start retaliating by “negging” your other reviews (happens all the time).

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.

AMZRC has wider inventory than most because their seller fees are lower. The savings are passed onto you, the shopper, with more coupon codes. This means more people can try out a single product and there are more discounted and free products to choose from!

Thank you for letting me know about Fiverr…I went and had a look and I cannot believe that people are selling this service and that it actually seems to very popular, wow!! My eyes really have been opened to this reviewing game, there really is another whole new world on Amazon with this carry on I never knew existed. Funny I was looking through the reviews on a product I had been sent after I read your reply and every one of the 48 reviews were down voted apart from the 3 top rated ones…such shady business. The article you are thinking of writing would be excellent in exposing this…I do agree that this needs to be exposed and I do think Amazon need to be taking it seriously and help combat it! Good luck with it Tristan, I look forward to reading it….

Approach with extreme caution. The next step is deciding whether or not to respond to a piece of negative feedback. Here’s where things get tricky, because the situation can change depending on whether you are an Amazon reseller dealing with negative seller feedback, or whether the problem is a negative product review.

This is new kid on the block. Launched just this year, it promises free registration and a multitude of products choices. If they deem you suitable for any particular review work, they will notify you through e-mail.

Make a plan to check on your reviews at least a few times a day, or use notifications so you’ll know whenever a review is submitted. If you moderate your reviews, approve or reject them as often you can to keep things moving.

Hi there. I love your website, thanks! Anyway just wanted to let you know that some of your links aren’t working properly. For instance when I click on #3 – Pinecone Research, I’m directed to a site called, ‘Product Report Card.com’. That’s not the first time that’s happened to me while using the links you provide on your site. I hope this information is helpful to you!

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 85% 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.

5.      Reach out with a thoughtful e-mail. Time to plead your case, so put on those puppy-dog eyes! Explain to the target that you found their review on Amazon and that you’d like to send them a product you believe they might be interested in. Don’t send out one soulless generic mass email – personalize the message showing that you’ve read up on the reviewer and seen their past reviews. Maybe comment on one review you found especially illuminating or clever. Personalizing your messages greatly improves your chances of getting a reply, so be sure to implement some considerate correspondence.

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.

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.

Any tool that allows me to grow my business, instead of managing the repetitive minutiae, is a worthwhile investment. An added bonus is how I can also make additional sales through Jump Send using their deals platform.

Reviews can also help you better understand your products. You can spend hours using a product, but chances are customers will notice things you never would. That means your customers can give you great feedback, ideas for improvements, or even incredible marketing ideas!

I’m not sure how long the requests will continue to come in, and for now I will continue for as long as I am enjoying it, although I find that I am having to dedicate 1- 2 days per week at the moment solely to write the reviews which I don’t mind at all and find has been great as I took a career break a couple of years ago to stay at home so having a informal but “work like” structure a couple of days a week has been very enjoyable for me.

The best way to frame the review is by highlighting the value your product adds to your customer’s life. Once you frame the review this way, you can ask them to share their experience with the rest of the world.

Please can u suggest some websites for Indian users.. i found ur blog useful! but mostly the products are for US or other western countries. Please tell me genuine product testing websites for us. I live in India.

It all depends on your demographic what companies are looking for. Some people get a lot of product testing invites and some don’t get hardly any. Remember although you’re just getting surveys right now those points you’re making can be cashed in for money, gift cards, and merchandise, so it’s a win-win!

Just as asking for a review as soon as a customer purchases a product isn’t effective, neither it is to take too long to do it. Because of that, I would like to share a 3-email follow-up sequences you can borrow for your own campaigns. Just make sure you modify this structure to suit your own product and company’s message.

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.

It’s funny that Amazon tried to sue many websites for doing exactly this. You can still buy amazon reviews at sites like https://launchzon.com/ but I guess they gave up on lawsuits and are just trying to make an extra buck like this now. Way to go Amazon!

1. Create a tracking system. You will need to identify and track to whom you are going to send your book or product. Not everyone that you contact will respond found about 50 percent of the people do), and of the people who respond about 50 percent of them will ultimately do a review. That means about one out of four people you identify will post a review (based on my experience), which is not too shabby. To track everyone, I use a simple Google Spreadsheet.

Important: Before you can post a review, you need to have an Amazon.com account that has successfully been charged for the purchase of a physical or digital item. Free digital downloads don’t qualify. You don’t need to have purchased the product you’re reviewing. There’s a 48-hour waiting period after your first physical order has been completely shipped, or your digital item has been purchased, before you’ll be able to submit your review. If you’ve purchased a digital gift for someone else, the 48-hour waiting period doesn’t begin until the gift has been redeemed.

Tell them that you’re hoping for an honest review of the product, although no obligation is required. Many won’t respond to your email, and probably only around half will review the product you send, but that’s the name of the game. Yes, it’s risky. But if your product is awesome and you know it can earn great reviews, a few 5 star ratings from these top Amazon reviewers will be HUGE.

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.

I am so tired of reading reviews from people that rcv the prodcuts for a discount/free – so many of them are obviously paid/fake since the reviewers clearly have never used the product. I immediately downvote any review where I see a disclaimer about a person receiving the product at a discount/free. I don’t care about the various programs that amazon runs…VINE or otherwise. Rarely do I see a person give less than a 3star rating on a ‘discount/free’ product. Amazon should create two rating systems: a verified buyer rating and a ‘shill rating’.

Companies first ask if I have a Prime account—which means I can get free shipping. When I say yes and agree to review their product, I receive a coupon code for 100% off the price. I order the item as I normally do, use the code and get it 2 days later.

Products offered include books, computer accessories, electronics, apps, cameras, housewares, clothing, video games, toys, food, sports equipment, music, beauty products, software, and services of all kinds.

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.

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.

Wonderful blog, thank you so much for sharing all of this great information! Hope you didn’t mind me jumping in and replying to some of the user questions. Sometimes I just can’t help myself, it is like an addiction. 🙂

I realize you may not know the rule, so hopefully you’ll see that I’m providing you a valuable piece of information so you may adjust accordingly. As of now, I will not report this to Amazon as long as you reply to confirm that you understand, so please reply and let me know that you understand why I can’t do what you’re asking until I have used your product.

Note: It can take up to 3 days after the order is completed or canceled for the “Leave seller feedback” button to appear next to the order in Your Orders page. You have 90 days from the date of your order to leave your rating and comments.

These changes will apply to all product categories other than books, as Amazon has always allowed advance copies of books to be distributed, the retailer notes. Amazon also says it has other ideas about making Vine more useful in the future, but didn’t go into detail.
