“receive free products for amazon reviews |how to sample amazon products for review”

1. As I stated earlier I am a newbie Amazon reviewer. I started off reviewing stuff around my house and some e-books I have read. I have had a few companies send me products using coupon code (this completely pays for the product and shows up as “Verified Purchase”), and others just send me the product.

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.

Since launching, the Echo has only gotten smarter. Most of what’s new comes by way of Alexa’s “Skills,” which are essentially the Echo’s apps. Whenever you enable one, you’re basically teaching Alexa a new trick. And, thanks to Amazon releasing a software development kit that third parties can use to craft those Skills, the list of options is growing rapidly. As of July 2017, the number of skills is well above 10,000.

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.

I live in Canada, read many reviews and have written a few for different products. If I had been aware of the Vine program (and was eligible) I would have written reviews for all the items I own that are available on Amazon.

So what are you, the average Amazon shopper, to do? You can avail yourself of sites like Fakespot and ReviewMeta. Both readily admit that their algorithms aren’t perfect, but they do help spotlight products with “too good to be true” reviews attached to them. You can read reviews yourself, and check for things like a ton of unverified five-star reviews — in my experience, a sure sign that something fishy is going on with a product’s review score. And you can click through and check out a reviewer’s history. If a reviewer only has a few reviews, or has hidden their review history, take their feedback with a grain of salt.

I ask it for the morning headlines as I brew my 8 a.m. pot of coffee. I ask it to play the most recent episode of my favorite podcast while I work out. I ask it to set a timer when I throw a frozen pizza in the oven for dinner. I ask it to turn my lights out when I’m hitting the sack. It’s always listening, and it always just works.

That is a great tip to show you actually own the product! As for tips on taking better product photography, I would say not to worry about it. The pictures should look natural and from your point of view. If they start to look too good or staged, a person could think they are not from a real person but from the company themselves.

Get on the same sites as your customers. Being social and accessible is the best way to get honest feedback. Make your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts easily accessible from your store so customers can reach out with comments and questions. If you have a brick-and-mortar business, like Milk + Honey Spa, you’ll also want to have a profile on Yelp and Google Places.

More than 39,400 reviews have been published through our service until March 2016. We help brands discover and connect with thousands of influential people who blog and share content via social networks.

At the same time, one of our readers, Tracy, who had commented a while back about the site, joined the site and came back to share her experience. And her experience is basically aligned with my thoughts. See Tracy’s comment here.

ExpoTv.com is a review site where reviews are not written, but rather filmed. You simply check their marketplace to find products to review and record yourself talking about the product. You can review any kind of product you like, except prescription medicine, firearms, and tobacco products. You can also earn points by taking surveys and referring friends.

Thank you for sharing these many great opinions. Wanted to share some of my story. I started my e-business 6 months ago, I have my own e-commerce website KelementStore.com, as well as Amazon marketplace store, tried many marketing strategies to promote my own website, such as Google AdWords, social media, referral program, only to realize only Amazon can move some quantity, even when I didn’t do any marketing on Amazon (not eligible as a new Amazon seller). I’m very grateful for the initial 5 star reviews I got, those genuine words quickly brought in sales. Then when the sales grow, bad come up, they didn’t like the product or there were misunderstanding, and these people refuse to communicate, just threw you bad reviews. I’ve consulted Amazon customer service on how to deal with such unfair situation, Amazon only removed a couple that violates their review/feedback guideline. Just like we would meet mean people in real life, they exist on the Internet too. I agree with Megan that the best thing to do in such situation is to get more positive reviews to bury the bad ones, but once there’s a bad one, your sales drop, and you seemed to have to search for paid reviews, but will also worry about being caught by Amazon. It’s a painful dilemma, I’m still struggling on the decisions and looking for good reviewers. I become a more active and positive reviewer now, since I know how hard and important it is to maintain a good reputation. Hope the same for every other sellers.

You’d be surprised but as with most things online, being a top Amazon reviewer doesn’t come without risks. One Amazon reviewer reportedly gets regular hate mail, among them death threats. Other Vine reviewers say their reviews get negative feedback just because of their Vine badge.

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

try the new site out ReviewMyItem I’ve had very good luck with their offers. there are not too many a week, but when they do send them out they are usually very good offers. I have prime so its great for me

As the name suggests, you will be writing reviews about softwares. You can expect to get paid up to $50 dollars for each software review you write. They have a list of softwares that you can write reviews on. Although, you are limited to only 3 reviews a day.

You can find many items for free or only $1 at iReviewHome. You do need to be approved by each individual seller before you can claim the discount code. To improve your approval chances, complete an A.R.T. profile that can quickly help sellers make a decision about your request.

On sites such as Toluna, you can even chat with fellow testers. If you prove that you’re reliable, have a fully updated profile and that you plan to stick around, you’re more likely to receive the best products.

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.

Amazon is making a significant change to its Community Guidelines, announced today, which will eliminate any incentivized reviews, except for those that emerge from within its own Amazon Vine program. This program allows Amazon – not the seller or vendor – to identify trusted reviewers, and has a number of controls in place in order to keep bias out of the review process.

Consequently, while one should loathe the organzations that are, in this way, poisoning one of the few honest consumer-oriented platforms out there, it’s perhaps beside the point to direct vituperation towards VV. This seems to be someone formerly engaged not in esurience but in survival, and who is now performing a public service by disclosing her experiences in an open forum. The more information we have, the better. VV and others like her should be encouraged to describe their experiences, not chided, it seems to me, for past moral lapses made while under economic distress. Or, at least, not when clearly trying to make amends.

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

@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.

Funny but I’ve been shopping for Bluetooth head phones recently and did order an Anker branded set for my downstairs tenant, though not the same one as you linked to on RM — guessing a newer model because it had better specs. Anyway, reason I chose it was the believable good reviews and my own past experience with that company’s peripherals such as USB chargers and power cords, all of which I found to be excellent; plus, they offered the lowest price among all the many clones. And the magnetic earphones I received really ARE superb, equal in sound quality I think to the Plantronics Backbeat Fit (which I hesitate to otherwise recommend because it seems most of those sold come DOA) and held a charge for the advertised 7 or 8 hours play time. I did leave a five star review of the Anker despite only having had the chance to test it for a day (though as thoroughly as possible, both in my own apartment paired with my iPad and downstairs with a BT tranceiver) and would even have purchased a second set but the price jumped five bucks after my review was published, D’oh!

When it comes to getting paid for reviewing websites, it is important to put honestly ahead of everything else. After all, your reviews will play a big rule in many people’s decisions in buying a product or service.

Awesome. Thank you so much for that link. I’ve been searching everywhere trying to get a clear answer for who can leave a review. We just started selling our own products on Amazon and have our own site and are on other platforms, and wanted to use that customer base to leave reviews on Amazon to be found there. It’s clearly spelled out at that link that that is okay and won’t be punished. Thanks again!

Thanks, Lou. I just got into L’Oreal’s panel right away through your link, too. But for the others, I’m wondering how long it will take to get invited. I’ve answered or got screened out of over 1,000 surveys total. Looking for some other ways to earn, some variety. Love your blog pages — so colorful and nicely arranged. Makes me want to blog again. A little. 🙂

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.

But most important, receiving something for free or nearly free can greatly affect one’s opinions. You might notice how few of the reviews through Vine and similar programs are negative or even critical. This isn’t a case of reviewers intentionally being dishonest, but rather the result of unconscious positive bias. Not paying for an item can make difficulties with that item seem less irritating.

Below, you will find tips on writing quality reviews, how to pitch to sellers plus a huge list of Amazon review sites that we’ve been using with great success. Join each one then watch your inbox for alerts on free offers and deals. The offers are usually very limited (the first 50, etc) so you’ll need to act fast if you want in on a specific item. We’d love for you to come back in few weeks and let us know about your experience with these companies!

They have shorter surveys, meaning it’ll take less time to complete them.  They offer product testing, online surveys, as well as business and IT type of surveys, earn money taking surveys on your phone, and surveys for teens.  You get paid in so many different ways with them.  💰 Pays by Cash via Check, PayPal, Visa Prepaid Cards, Merchandise, Gift Cards, and Movie Vouchers

s mentioned above, I highly recommend you start reviewing items around the house/office you use often so companies can get an idea of how you write. Also, keep in mind that the type of products you review can dictate what companies contact you. If you only review headphones, you will likely get more requests to review headphones.

I didn’t think that BzzAgent had “points” either. Today I was taking a few short surveys (to update my profile). At the end of each one I was rewarded between 3-5 points. I quickly realised that BzzAgent has partnered with MyPoints so I joined that and the points I receive and redeem with BzzAgent go into there within 48 hours. MyPoints has their own thing going on but the points I get from BzzAgent have been going in there.

I’m glad you found it insightful! As for bad reviews, that can be tough for some reviewers to write. Companies will often write “we are a small family business” in their emails to you. Some of these are true, and I believe others are saying it trying to coax you into feeling awful if you write a bad review.

I also have one small favor to ask you, if everything has gone smoothly, I’d really appreciate it if you could take just a few seconds to leave feedback on your buying experience with us. It really affects our ability to sell and be successful and would be greatly appreciated.

Just thought in case there are some honest folks around this might be useful to know. As someone that broke into the Top 100 on the Amazon Review rankings I stopped reviewing on Amazon (unless I actually buy the item) as of that change of policy.

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

Product testing USA is legit I have tested one item for them but it seems like nobody gets chosen more than once but you have to sign up separately for each product and your chances of getting chosen probably are one in a million, and unfortunately each time you sign up for a product you have to do the crappy survey and yes if you select yes on anything you are swamped with a bunch of junk mail. So I always choose no to everything I have talked to them there at PTUSA and they said whether or not you choose yes or no does not help or lesson your chance to be chosen so if you really want to sign up for a product my suggestion if you don’t want a bunch of junk mail that is just answer no yo all of the survey questions.

I have never bought a single product on Amazon that didn’t have a review, and I am sure I am not alone. Most people use Amazon reviews as one of their main tools for considering whether to buy a product or not.

How much you get paid varies.  I’ve been paid anywhere from $3-$150. There was a time I tested a website in beta format for HBO (now called HBO-GO) and they paid me $100 for doing it!  Very easy money!

Second, the thing about Vine compared to other methods of receiving free products for review is that you are buffered from the manufacturer. They will not e-mail you and harass you in an attempt to get a better review. Things like coupon clubs and e-mail solicitations put more pressure on reviewers to give 5-star reviews and they will harangue you when you don’t. People also feel that they will stay in the database to get more freebies if they give positive reviews when the items aren’t coming from Vine. Giving low rankings to Vine items has no effect on the availability of items (which seems largely random), so you don’t have to worry about giving negative reviews and cutting the supply line. It actually frees you to be more honest and Vine reviewers can be some of the most savage in their product assessments when they are good reviewers, but they can be just as dopey as anyone else when they aren’t (Hint: “I was so happy to get this,” This was just what I need,” and “My kid/wife/dog loved this!” are all clues that the person hasn’t a clue how to assess a product but is just writing words because he/she has to write a review).

Get Paid To Take Pictures Of Receipt: The Ibotta app is a mobile app that pays you to scan your receipts. Earn cash back at restaurants, grocery stores and even online purchases. Not only that, but you even get a $10 bonus when you scan your first receipt within your first week and use promo code qFTVA. The best part? It’s 100% FREE.

Look at the reviewer’s other reviews, SEE if they don’t blast stuff when it needs it. See if they don’t routinely try to point out problems with items. The public is often quick to say they’d rather see a “FREE” review that is fair and detailed, than an item with no reviews at all. It would be nice if people would SUPPORT helpful reviewers, and review more often themselves. A lot of us will answer questions that are emailed to us, or comments left with questions.

I have played it about three times now. Every time I play it gets better. I am amazed how awesome this game really is. I have only had it for 2 years. If you like to play open world games I recommend this game to you. The character customization is awesome two. I can never create the same character twice. Never have I seen a game like that before. There are millions of different combination’s it’s wonderful.

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

For over 5 years, I have been approached by authors, publishers, product manufactures and distributors to read/try their products and then write a review on Amazon. It has often been a rewarding experience in that I get to try products I love, and ones that I would have never bought but seem interesting.

I’m in the same boat , thankfully only a tiny amount of things I’ve ever tested have been bad or faulty. There are things I will not test , like supplements, pet foods/treats , makeup and certain beauty products. The reason I won’t test or buy these sorts of thing is mainly because there is too much room for uncertainty of the products and their safety.

As for audio quality, the Echo features dual downward-firing speakers that promise 360 degrees of “immersive sound.” Some of us at CNET, myself included, have noted that its bass tends to weaken or distort at maximum volume, but I haven’t had a problem with that personally, since I rarely find myself needing to dial things up much higher than 60 percent or so. To my ear, the Echo does a fine job of filling a room with sound, especially with crisp speech playback, something you’ll notice when you listen to a podcast or stream an audiobook.

Oddly enough, if Amazon would take on Facebook’s approach and way of thinking, this would eliminate sites like Fiverr. There’s a reason Facebook doesn’t offer a “Dislike” button, and perhaps Amazon should do the same. (http://techcrunch.com/2014/12/11/ask-zuck-anything/)

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.

I’ve gotten things from Crowdtap and BzzAgent, and I only started about a month and a half – 2 months ago. I have received foundation from BzzAgent, an electric foot file from Crowdtap that retails for $60, and I’ve got more coming!

Most of these have deteriorated over the past year from offering high quality items for review into a dumping ground for sellers seeking to score more attention for their dubious supplements, cheap electronics accessories, Chinese-made “dollar store” type goods, and more recently adult “novelties.”

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

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.

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

I’m struggling with an ethical decision. I’m not sure if it’s something you’ve ever encountered. I received a discounted product in a package with multiple paid orders. I remember seeing the discounted product, but when I went to test it, I couldn’t find it anywhere. I have looked and looked for weeks to see if it slipped behind something or what. The only thing I can figure is it accidentally was thrown away with the packaging. So what should I do? I feel bad that I haven’t written a review. I could say it arrived promptly and possibly give some general information about it, but I don’t feel comfortable writing a fake review nor do I feel right in writing no review since I did receive the product. Any advice?

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.

This fall, Amazon, which has continued to experiment with its smart speaker portfolio, released an update of its flagship Echo speaker. In our testing, the second-generation model delivered improved audio quality courtesy of a dedicated woofer and tweeter and Dolby sound. It also follows the lead of its Echo Dot sibling, providing an auxiliary jack and Bluetooth connectivity for hooking up to an existing speaker system. The first-generation Echo has discontinued, and though Amazon still sells a certified refurbished version for $90, there’s really no point. The superior Echo 2.0 costs only $100 (£90 or about AU$155), down from its original $180 price, and Amazon offers a $50 discount on a three-pack.

That’s the true success of Amazon’s likable smart speaker — it fits in seamlessly with your daily routine. It doesn’t ask you to change any of your habits, it just makes a surprising number of those habits better. It’s the most futuristic product that I own, yet it’s also right at place in my present.

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.

VIP Amazon Review Club by Premier Deals Club offers many products that usually sell for $20 to $50 for only $3 to $5. You won’t get many free deals which can be a downside. When you do receive a discounted product, you only have three days to post a review. This is a quick deadline relatively speaking when compared to other Amazon review sites.

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

Nice article. I don’t mean to sound negative, but I have been on most of the panels that you have suggested and the only one that ever has truly panned out for me is productreport.com. They definitely do send products for you to test. I once got $150.00 for just answering moderator questions for 4 days. They have slowed down now and its been hard to get the required 25.00. Most of the other places rarely send out anything worthwhile. The Nielsen company I scanned for over 2 years faithfully almost 3 times a week and finally was able to “cash out” with a pair of iphone headphones. What a joke. I hope others are more successful than I have been on these places!

This is why a responsible reviewer sets aside time each day or week to update reviews. I do mine weekly. If, during the week, I notice a product has failed to perform, has performed better than I thought initially, or has some feature that I’ve just discovered, I go back and update. Products have gone from five stars to one, and from two to four. Each time, I leave my original review, and amend it to add my new thoughts or findings.

I use most of these sights I’ve been a member with bzzagent the longest about 4 years almost and have NEVER EVER Recieved a payment of gift card or payment of any kind..never heard of it either….loreal testing panel is bogus been there 4 years never got a thing did every survey ever…smiley 360 I’ve gotten s tons of stuff crowdtap and bzzagent tons of stuff.. Love it! Also if u like product reviewing go ok Facebook and look for review groups I used to be big in it and used to get literally 20 packages A day from Amazon for months without spending a dime! I have a mini washing machine coming this week for free got my son a scooter for Christmas ..got 100 pair of blue tooth headphones for my daughter I’ve gotten some Amazin stuff but most of that was pitching on my own

Technically, these reviewers are not compensated with cash, but writing reviews has become a windfall of sorts. Those who participate in incentivized reviews have written an average of 232 reviews, the study indicated, while those who have not, only wrote an average of 31 reviews. That’s a lot of free and discounted products for these ‘non-compensated’ reviewers!

If you like getting paid for surveys, and are going to join only one site, I would recommend you choose Ipsos-iSay. Ipsos is the most fun and well-paying panel. Give it a try to see how you like it. It is free anyway!

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

Keep an eye out on us please. We’re soon to launch our beta platform, and would appreciate a good word to help us buildup a reviewer base. Our Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/buviewing?ref=hl and we know that there are many folks who want to do reviews, get free stuff, and earn a bit too. Thanks, and feel free to IM in FB.

Think about it from their angle: a romance novelist is looking for people to review her book, and she sees your profile where it only says “KittyBooBoo” for the name and an email that matches, of course. No reviews, no other profile info. So, no way is she is going to ask you to review her book since it would likely be a waste of her time emailing you. But, if a camera manufacturer comes across your profile and sees you are a photographer, with well-written reviews on other cameras and related gear, and a link to your blog where you write about camera gear or photography, then yes, they may likely contact you.

Customer reviews are very important to boost a product ranking and offering a product at a discount is a great incentive to quickly acquire customer feedback and boost sales simultaneously. Due to recent changes to Amazon’s customer review policy, most of these sites might require that you place a disclaimer stating you purchased the product at a discount price.

It is my understanding that companies offer their items in exchange for reviews because the more reviews you have – good or bad – the higher your product will appear in Amazon search results and this can be important if you really want to get your items in front of shoppers. For instance, I just did a search for “pink shoes” and received 152,080 results. Most people aren’t going to take the time to scan all of those results, so appearing on the first few pages will help the company sell more product.

4. Once on the Seller’s details page, look to the right side for blue outlined box and a link near the bottom of it in a paragraph starting with “For questions regarding products”. Click it (you will be asked to log in.) See screenshot:

Set up your profile. Write up a short bio on your profile, expressing the your interests and what kind of products you like. Including your country, email address, and interest in reviewing in your profile will encourage sellers contact you directly for products to review. Make sure your profile is set to public as well.

To recommend your products, I need to know you can appreciate the fact ethically I have limits I’m not willing to break, regardless of the fact Amazon has specifically banned this practice and my doing what you ask could get us both in trouble. Honestly, I have a feeling that eventually, someone you send this to will report you.

You have to wonder If there is a negativity bias behind this article. Its like they’re implyingnyhay negative reviews are more legitimate than positive. However. When someone has an ax. to grind its not unusual for them to get friends to gangup on a product and lost very extreme negative reviews in an effort to take down someone they dislike. That’s a far worse problemproblem the negative review trolls.

Thank you, Lou. You shared some very good survey sites that I am a member of. Thanks for listing Nicequest. I was able to sign up with them through your link. I think some of the best sites are the ones that send invitations through email.

Ming Ooi, one of the co-founders of Fakespot, is blunt in his assessment of Amazon’s reviews ecosystem. “About 40 percent of reviews we see on Amazon are unreliable,” he says — though his site is only checking reviews that people are taking the time to examine on Fakespot, which likely skews the results. (When I asked about the weird reviews where different color options for product were actually different products entirely under the same listing, he confirmed that it was a “newish trend we are starting to see.”)

Etekcity.com has a consumer testing area. You can apply and choose which tech item you wish to test and review, and if accepted, they’ll send it to you. Each time you do this and follow through with your review requirements, it ups your chance to review a more expensive piece of tech. I just signed up last week and I have a digital kitchen scale headed my way via UPS 🙂

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

This is possible. But another factor is a filtering bias: Vine reviewers choose which products to receive and review from a list. In my experience, I’m much more likely to request an item that I think will turn out to be good and that I’ll like. There’s nothing in it for me if I get something for review and it turns out to be crap. So, many crappy items simply don’t get requested for Vine reviews in the first place.

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.

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

Hopefully Tesla or some other forward-thinking car manufacturer will soon start making these steering wheel compatible work trays standard. Just look at how productive it might make the morning commute for millions of people across the globe.

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

The speaker will light up whenever it hears you say its wake word, “Alexa” (or “Amazon,” or “Echo,” in case you don’t want to anthropomorphize the thing. Or in case your name happens to be Alexa. If you’re a Star Trek fan, you can also choose to wake it up by saying “Computer”). Once you have Alexa’s attention, you’ll tell the Echo what you want. Whether that’s some light jazz, the latest headlines from NPR, a 20-minute kitchen timer, an especially corny joke or any one of the countless other things you might think to ask for is entirely up to you.

Similarly to the marketing inserts, the goal of an e-commerce email post-purchase follow-up sequence is to provide value to your customers. This “value” can be defined as relevant information about the product purchased, customer support, useful guides related to the product, or any other type of content that makes your customer’s life better.

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.

This site launched at the end of July 2016. They show a handful of sample products on their home page: costumes, toys, beauty supplies, electronics, speakers, phone cases, apparel, video camera, and more. Available for reviewers in the UK.

unfortunately, amazon has a double standard for itself and does not let its customers review it as a seller on its own site, although you can review other sellers. that in itself says so much. and so here i am, where i can share my experience. on the upside, if anything is outwardly defective the return process is simple and amazon customer service has been good in my experience – the one time they credited me back the wrong amount, they immediately fixed it. i have never had an issue with their customer service, though i see plenty of others here have, so i’m not sure what to make of that.

This review program is part of the Anker Technology brand of electronics for electronics, phone accessories like battery backups, screen protectors, chargers, and audio/speakers. There are even products like lamps and vacuums, keyboards and mice, and laptop batteries. Available in: USA, Germany, Canada, UK, France, Spain, Italy

I will add, in my experience with Grammarly, and why I advocate it and it stood out. It catches many words that aren’t misspelled, but are in the wrong context. For example, a couple lines above I accidentally typed “doesn’t out much,” where in haste I typed out instead of “put.” I would proofread it when I finish (my father taught me to proofread by reading each word from the bottom up, right to left as it makes you slow down and pay closer attention…tedious but handy) but before I got a sentence away Grammarly identified it and pointed it out to me, and a quick mouse click later it’s fixed. Which can shortens my prof dreading later.

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

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.

Disconcertingly, not only were a lot of the cloned products for sale on Amazon positively drowning in successive, unverified five star reviews, but perhaps an even greater proportion were tagged Verified. These reviews all shared similar word patterns and either focused on or neglected the same features, while including a staggering amount of useless user pics as well. Of course the most blatant Fake giveaway was that they were uniformly peppered with multiple exclamation points and exhortations to Just Buy It!!!

I fill out surveys and some leads to testing a product that I get invited to try at home. Some surveys leads to focus groups where me and other people are in a chat room setting discussing different products.

The quick answer is that every analysis does two simultaneous things: we analyze every single review posted and we review each reviewer and every review that reviewer has ever posted on that account. We take all that data and run it through our proprietary engine which grades everything and looks for patterns.

“how can i review products on amazon -amazon product review club”

Typically reviewers are invited to conduct a review by a journal or books editor. Editors usually select researchers that are experts in the same subject area as the paper. However, if you think you would be a good reviewer for a specific journal you can always contact one of the journal’s editors.

I use most of these sights I’ve been a member with bzzagent the longest about 4 years almost and have NEVER EVER Recieved a payment of gift card or payment of any kind..never heard of it either….loreal testing panel is bogus been there 4 years never got a thing did every survey ever…smiley 360 I’ve gotten s tons of stuff crowdtap and bzzagent tons of stuff.. Love it! Also if u like product reviewing go ok Facebook and look for review groups I used to be big in it and used to get literally 20 packages A day from Amazon for months without spending a dime! I have a mini washing machine coming this week for free got my son a scooter for Christmas ..got 100 pair of blue tooth headphones for my daughter I’ve gotten some Amazin stuff but most of that was pitching on my own

There are more popping up all the time, but there are a select few with great reputations that you can be sure will deliver what they promise. After testing a whole range of sites ourselves we have come up with a list of the most trusted product testing sites below.

The BEST site I have used for taking surveys and being paid for the surveys is called: oneopinion.com. Again, you need 25000 credits to cash out into paypal. Its VERY EASY to get them. Ive already cashed out for OVER $500.00 in 2 1/2months. They DONT charge a fee, wen you cash out, your money IMMEDIATELY goes into your paypal account, and at times, they send you products to test and do a survey on. I JUST received an additional 30.00 for a dog treat survey, on top of the 2500 points for the original survey. So, oneopinion.com is a site I would DEFINITELY recommend

5. Make contact. Once you identify potential reviewers, reach out to them explaining that you discovered their review on Amazon. Explain that you have a book or product that you think may be of interest to them, and would like to send it to them. Further explain that you are seeking an honest review of the item you send, but that they don’t have an obligation (this process is about inviting reviews, not forcing reviews). About 50 percent of the people who get my book, will post an honest review. And yes, there have been occasions where someone I identified in this method destroyed my book in their review, but that is the nature of a good review process.

(4) Now, you should finally be at the screen to register/create and EA account. Clicking “submit” never worked for us, so we clicked on the –> to continue. This is when I nearly lost it, after all this work we find out that “The registration key used to instal this game cannot be validated.” If you click on help with registration it just takes you to a page for password recovery. I also tried to look at the technical support mentioned in the back of the book with the DVD for help. I can get to the main page, but there is no content at all.

“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.

The Result?  Online reviewers, journalists, bloggers, and podcasters meet product promoters, marketers, public and publicity pros, to help each other find new products and review them online.  Hopefully this now includes you, too!

But unlike Siri, which is still secondary to touch as a means of interfacing with iOS devices, Alexa is essentially all the Echo has. It was critical for Amazon to get her right — thankfully, she delivers (and yes, calling Alexa “she” feels more correct than calling Alexa “it,” a testament to how personable she is).

“[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.”

You don’t need Vine to participate in Amazon giveaway’s and discounts. Check out amzrc.com for some awesome deals that you can get for a huge discount. Just leave an honest review in exchange for getting such a great deal!

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.

On a regular basis I received from the Seller Home Town message announcing that the pick-up for return and refund will be organised soon (in the next 24 hours, then in the next 48 hours, then in the next 72 hours).

Ask the right questions. To do this, you need to know the type of answers you want before you start asking for them. What is your target audience interested in? What are their biggest concerns when making a purchase? What are pain points in your industry? Aligning with these questions will help you get meaningful and relevant testimonials.

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

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

Thanks, Lynn, for all of your wonderful tips and replies! If you have any experience with some or all of the review sites listed here, we sure could benefit from your feedback and tips. Each page has a comments section for that review site.

What I hate is when the public assumes that you give something 5 stars you are a ‘FAKE.’ One thing that needs to be made clear is that a FAKE reviewer, as used in the lawsuits, involved people that were taking money and NEVER SEEING an item, just writing whatever the vendor told them to write! Realize not everyone has the same working definition of “FAKE.” Fake is not the same as compensated or commissioned.

I get new products from LOreal to test, but for some reason it’s hard to qualify for some of their testing.  But when you do qualify, you get a boatload of free beauty products! 💰 Pays by Free Beauty Products 

Writing reviews for products you never owned or never used could come back to haunt you if a company, seller or author ever asks you about it. Also, Amazon customers can leave comments and questions on your reviews asking for more information. Responding to these is also helpful for getting free products to review.

Ilovetoreview.com gives you free and reduced priced items almost every day through amazon.com as long as you agree to review them. If you fail to submit your review within a certain amount of time you wont be able to recieve any more products. I have gotten everything from cookware to beauty products all full size complete products in exchange for my reviews.

Have you ever seen some random product for sale that’s from some brand you’ve never heard of, and the company has no website—yet its widget has somehow garnered 15,000 five-star reviews since … last week? We sure have. This situation is likely the result of a compensated-review program. Such compensated reviews—orchestrated by businesses that cater to companies that want more public positive feedback—violate Amazon’s terms of use but are difficult to police. (This arrangement is not to be confused with Amazon’s Vine program, in which companies provide products to users in exchange for an honest opinion, although those reviews can be problematic in their own way. You can read our thoughts on them below.)

Product testing USA is legit I have tested one item for them but it seems like nobody gets chosen more than once but you have to sign up separately for each product and your chances of getting chosen probably are one in a million, and unfortunately each time you sign up for a product you have to do the crappy survey and yes if you select yes on anything you are swamped with a bunch junk mail. So I always choose no to everything I have talked to them there at PTUSA and they said whether or not you choose yes or no does not help or lesson your chance to be chosen so if you really want to sign up for a product my suggestion if you don’t want a bunch of junk mail that is just answer no yo all of the survey questions.

There is also a new site that offers products to Amazon reviewers. good if you have prime. It is called Reviewmyitem.com I have not received too many offers from them, but the ones i do receive were very good offers.

This has been really helpful to me. I review on Amazon too but not a Vine member. I have always wondered about some of the things that you have shared here. Thanks. I sure hope I get to be a Vine member eventually.

I got a message that my review was removed because they think I knew the seller and my review was biased. Um, no and no. This is what it said, ““Amazon does not permit reviews from customers whose relationship to the product or seller may be perceived as biased”. So I guess they won’t be picking me as a Vine Reviewer. I do have 50 helpful votes and over 100 reviews.

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.

“review items on amazon for money _amazon product review sugar free gummy bears”

They offer discounts for a variety of products, although, health and beauty tend to be the most common category. The offerings largely depend on their merchant partnerships so the deals are always changing.

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. 

The quick answer is that every analysis two simultaneous things: we analyze every single review posted and we review each reviewer and every review that reviewer has ever posted on that account. We take all that data and run it through our proprietary engine which grades everything and looks for patterns.

Knowing that, you can expect that background checks are minimal or (most likely) completely non-existent. BUT, if any manufacturer sends out a bunch of product and gets an abysmal response of people writing reviews, you can expect that the next time that manufacturer will likely do some more checks first.

While the company is seeking damages and an injunction against the fake reviewers, it’s unclear if Amazon will actually see this through to the end—or if it’s just a salvo to suggest that the reviewers to knock it off. Notably, the company did not name the Amazon sellers who hired them in the first place. Under the company’s legal arguments, those sellers would be liable, too.

Don’t really know if Amazon is okay with this or not, but I think it is something that needs to be looked at.

So I signed up for a few of these, the buzz one specifically and I did a bunch of surveys but it doesn’t really mention anything about when I would receive a protect to review. When does that happen? What about receiving products and doing reviews on YouTube or my blog? I saw a lady on youtube who was getting childrens board games and reviewing them! Do you know anything about that? Thanks!

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

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.

The Customer Product Reviews screen shows you a list of reviews for that item. The list includes the date of the review, the reviewer name (keep in mind this name can be different from the name the buyer uses to purchase items), the rating, title of the review and the text of the review. The screen also shows you whether or not the review is associated with a verified Amazon purchase.

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!”

4. Once on the Seller’s details page, look to the right side for blue outlined box and a link near the bottom of it in a paragraph starting with “For questions regarding products”. Click it (you will be asked to log in.) See screenshot:

Furthermore, I hope you are truly loving our products and are happy with your purchase. As a small seller on Amazon, we are largely dependent on product reviews from wonderful customers such as yourself.

I have only started reviewing product over the past 6 mths. About 70% of the product promo codes I enter fail. It happens when the sellers directly email me a code & also when I attempt to redeem an item from AMZThe sellers tell me that they haven’t come across this issue with other reviewers. They send me another promo code and some times it works, and other times it doesn’t. One vendor sent me 4 codes before I was finally able to successfully redeem it. This happens even if I attempt to redeem the code same day as received. And they are products I have never purchased either myself or through a different promo code.

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!

Hi there, Wondering if you have any advice on getting products shipped to Mexico. Mexico do not allow cosmetic products through the post from USA or Canada, I believe. The postal system is quite unreliable anyway. Any thoughts?

The world has changed since Amazon introduced its first smart speaker in 2014. Back then, the Echo was something of an oddity — a bookshelf speaker made interactive and, remarkably, truly useful through Amazon’s voice-activated Alexa virtual assistant. Since then, the company has expanded its lineup of smart speakers to include a variety of specialties, while continuing to build out Alexa’s arsenal of skills and integrations with third-party apps and smart home gadgets. And the world has caught up, too, pitting Amazon against an increasingly competitive market full of noteworthy rivals including Google, Sonos, and, soon, Apple.

Good reviews are an art form and the problem is that people write emotionally about products whether they are free or not. Currently, Amazon has no system in place for elevating the wheat from the chaff whether the review is of a free or paid product because such a system would require a subjective evaluation of content rather than scanning by using software algorithms.

—— “I wanted to reply to this and let you know that what you’re asking as far as the request that I “click the customer reviews….kindly click the yes for us…” that is expressly forbidden by Amazon’s rules and can get me banned from further reviewing any products and get your company sued. Amazon is really cracking down on this and it’s a huge deal. Also, for me personally, this goes against what I feel is ethically is right and wrong. After I’ve used and have an opinion on your product I might be able to say that another review helped me, but I cannot do so before I’ve ever tried it.

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

The problem I have with Amazon and its reviews is this, I review for Amazon where I obtain items I would normally purchase but at a reduced price for my honest opinion. And my reviews are very honest, I have no issue in telling a company that their bvlah blah product is crap and this is why,,,

By enrolling in their EtekCitizen program, you can receive discounted promotions and free giveaways. EtekCitizen is broken down into four different product categories: healthy living, smart living, active living, and smart living.

After the first signing up, you will be rewarded with a DealCoin, which can be used to exchange for the product of corresponding value. As you embark on your review job, you’ll continue to be rewarded with a DealCoin with every completed assignment, i.e. those individual assignments have to be verified by the Amazing Deals Group. And then you go for another review.

Another great sites where you get paid for writing reviews. Epinions is a shopping.com company where members can earn money by writing useful reviews about different products. there is no limit to how many reviews you can write. The more reviews you write, the more money you make. The first 10 reviews that you write, earn you $10, 20 to 30 reviews earn you $20, writing 30-39 reviews earn you $30, and so on. Every time you write a review you receive what are called “Eroyalties credits”, which are redeemable in US dollars. When you accumulated $10 in your account, you can request to be paid, which will be paid to you by check.

“how do you get to review products for amazon get free products for reviews on amazon”

Try the product then leave your review. Seller’s are hoping for a 4 or 5 star review from. If the product did not meet your expectations, you can always contact the seller before leaving the review. If they feel that you received a defective item, (and this all varies by seller) they may send you another product.

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.

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

6. Always fill out your demographic information with each product testing website you’re signed up with. This helps them know which product testing surveys are better suited for you, and more than likely you’ll will qualify for.

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

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. 🙂

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.

“Also, they asked me to check some of the existing reviews, and to click that one helped me.” DON’T DO THIS. This A) goes against the ethics of the Reviewing community, B) is expressly forbidden by Amazon and something Amazon is cracking down on and kicking Reviewers/Seller out for, and C) is something we all need to stamp out by writing back to Sellers and saying ‘no’—educate them that this practice of fake up-votes is unethical and against policy.

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’ve long considered entering this arena, but my concern is that I have been using my username(s) for quite some years on a few retail sites, but I’m mainly concerned about my Amazon username since that’s where the most reviews take place.

Snagging an assessment from one of these prize reviewers can mean big things for your Amazon seller account. These guys are the big mouth Billy basses of the Amazon world, and we’re going to show you how to reel them in.

Consequently, while one should loathe the organzations that are, in this way, poisoning one of the few honest consumer-oriented platforms out there, it’s perhaps beside the point to direct vituperation towards VV. This seems to be someone formerly engaged not in esurience but in survival, and who is now performing a public service by disclosing her experiences in an open forum. The more information we have, the better. VV and others like her should be encouraged to describe their experiences, not chided, it seems to me, for past moral lapses made while under economic distress. Or, at least, not when clearly trying to make amends.

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.

According to Amazon, “Vine is an invitation-only program. All Vine products are submitted by vendors to Amazon and distributed by Amazon to the Vine Voices. Vendors have no contact with the Vine Voices, and have no influence over which Vine Voices will review their products.”

This is a fairly new review club with a large marketplace of products in a very wide range of categories from small electronics, household goods, kitchen items, arts and crafts, sewing, pet supplies and a lot more. Available for reviewers in the USA.

Thanks for the reply Tristan. That is a real comfort to me if the broken links are mistakes. I thought the Amazon would not public the emails for the reason that they don’t want sellers to contact to the reviewers and they are takeing actions to those fake reviews.

In order to implement a successful email follow-up sequence, you need to hit on the right timing and message. The words don’t matter as much as the moment in which the customer receives the message, and what they are asked to do based on that moment.

Believe it or not there is a (small, admittedly) corps of reviewers who take pride in giving honest reviews, take detailed photos and test all aspects of a over an adequate timeframe. Like all reviews whether you call them professional, editorial or otherwise (where’s the line? Do you expect magazines to pay for movies they review?) the products are usually not charged for.

I dislike those reviewers who would make good micro managers, focusing on things like repeated word usage and misspelled words INSTEAD OF focusing on the big picture. As a reviewer I would be looking for signs of genius.

Jump Send  has built an industry leading automated email campaign tool to email all organic buyers. This lets sellers provide an exceptional customer experience.In addition, with promotional giveaways, sellers can increase their search rank and sales velocity all in one place.

I mentioned that an Amazon rep emailed me in response to an issue and told me in the course of our correspondence of the vine club; yet I was told repeatedly that just wasn’t so or possible. How do these people know who has contacted me? They don’t. I actually have the emails saved. Amazon has always had the best customer service or it has been my experience. I never would have believed that they allowed such to go on when they give this link to get help on products etc. Not one conversation I found was about about product. The conversations taking place were about club reviewers and how they would be purged and done away with. Matter of fact, I was told it was coming for me and I would no longer be an Amazon reviewer when Amazon was done with me.

I didn’t think that BzzAgent had “points” either. Today I was taking a few short surveys (to update my profile). At the end of each one I was rewarded between 3-5 points. I quickly realised that BzzAgent has partnered with MyPoints so I joined that and the points I receive and redeem with BzzAgent go into there within 48 hours. MyPoints has their own thing going on but the points I get from BzzAgent have been going in there.

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

Does that unfairly skew star ratings however? Probably, and maybe there’s an opportunity there for something like an extension to provide a weighted score by scanning for discount review disclaimers. I think there is real value for everyone in these types of reviews when they’re done right so as to minimize influencing the reviewer as much as possible, although it may be more qualitative than quantitative.

Reviews may get taken down if others label them inaccurate or if they don’t comply with Google’s review policies. You can’t contact someone who left an inappropriate review, but you can request that Google remove it.

Take a look through the list of Amazon’s top reviewers, and create a spreadsheet where you can start logging info about your potential reviewers. You are looking for reviewers who have already reviewed books in your genre, and once you’ve found them, any additional information you can grab about them, including email addresses, and any personal interests.

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

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

You’d be surprised but as with most things online, being a top Amazon reviewer doesn’t come without risks. One Amazon reviewer reportedly gets regular hate mail, among them death threats. Other Vine reviewers say their reviews get negative feedback just because of their Vine badge.

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?

I used to review products which I sometimes received for free, and my wife has been on a kick lately with these websites which specialize in selling deeply discounted products in exchange for a promise to review it.

This is why a responsible reviewer sets aside time each day or week to update reviews. I do mine weekly. If, during the week, I notice a product has failed to perform, has performed better than I thought initially, or has some feature that I’ve just discovered, I go back and update. Products have gone from five stars to one, and from two to four. Each time, I leave my original review, and amend it to add my new thoughts or findings.

Thank you very much for this post, as obviously your advice was crucial and as a result of taking it, I’m hopefully now about to review my first product as an official “reviewer!” I say “hopefully,” because I’ve not yet received a reply to my acceptance of the offer.

What aspects of the Rxvoit headphones’ reviews felt funny to us? Well, first of all, we noticed that a lot of the positive reviews happened within a few days of each other. That indicates to us that people made a push for reviews to happen on a timeline.

Typically reviewers are invited to conduct a review by a journal or books editor. Editors usually select researchers that are experts in the same subject area as the paper. However, if you think you would be a good reviewer for a specific journal you can always contact one of the journal’s editors.

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.

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

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.

With survey panels, make sure you fill out your profile so companies know what type of demographic you are. Surveys will tell you if you’re invited to test a product. The more paid surveys you do, the more product test surveys you’ll start receiving.

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 🙂

I was wondering………. how do you get to leave a “verified” review without paying for the product first. I thought I could give potential reviewers an Amazon Gift Card to the value of…. or perhaps there is another way? Maybe you just leave unverified reviews?

I will add, in my experience with Grammarly, and why I advocate it and it stood out. It catches many words that aren’t misspelled, but are in the wrong context. For example, a couple lines above I accidentally typed “doesn’t out much,” where in haste I typed out instead of “put.” I would proofread it when I finish (my father taught me to proofread by reading each word from the bottom up, right to left as it makes you slow down and pay closer attention…tedious but handy) but before I got a sentence away Grammarly identified it and pointed it out to me, and a quick mouse click later it’s fixed. Which can shortens my prof dreading later.

One other thing to look out for is reviews for the wrong product. A terrible thing that Amazon has done is allows sellers to list multiple unrelated products under one listing so you don’t even know what you are reading a review for. This function was supposed to be used to allow listing of variations of the exact same product like color, size, etc…, but now is being widely abused to list totally different items for the sake of reviews and price-based search results. For example, someone might sell a camera flash and a tripod and full studio kit all under one listing. When you read the reviews, you see a bunch of people raving about how great the product was and you assume it is for the flash you are looking at, but they are all really for the tripod and the one flash review was bad. I have reported this and Amazon simply does not care.

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.

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

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.

Finally, this game can be played w/o an Internet connection. This is what my daughter asked to do in the car (no Internet connection) each afternoon while we drive home after summer daycamp (her reward for straight A’s & A+’s last year :-). So we know it works.

Hello, this is a very interesting article! Thank you for the information. I am not a seller but am a reviewer. I get contacted by companies to purchase their product at 99% off or at an even higher discount in exchange for an honest review of their product. I feel this is a great way for people like me to point out the best parts of the product (even the parts that aren’t so great) and help the buyer make the right decision when purchasing the product through reviews. Thank you for the information again and i just wish there were a website reviewers could go to to contact sellers who need people to Leave an honest review of their products.. Any recommendations??

Yes these websites are safe. I would never add any fraudulent sites on my blog. These are survey panels I currently use to have opportunities to test products at home. There is no commitment so you can quit anytime by unsubscribing.

I cannot get the HP z27 to work with my Mac Air or Mac mini. What gives? This thing comes with three cables, none of them, including the displayport to display port mini cable, work. Getting fed up and am about to return this heap.

It wasn’t hard finding cheap dongle deals on Amazon. The problem was the huge variance in the reviews — often for ostensibly the exact same product. It’s an issue I’d noticed plenty of times while hunting for cheap electronics on Amazon, but I couldn’t stop trying to figure out the rhyme or reason behind it all.

The reason why companies has surveys because they need to know your opinion about the product before it hit stores. They do not want to blindly send their products to stores without knowing what consumers think about it to avoid losing money if it doesn’t sell.

DooYoo is a website where you are paid to write reviews that can help others make decisions about buying a product. You simply write reviews on products and services you have used, sharing your experience with others who might be interested in buying the same product or services as well. Each time you write a review on any product or service, you earn what are called “DooYooMiles”. You also earn additional points every time your reviews is read by other people. They also give prizes every month to the best product reviews of the month.

I just started researching this to try out, I have never done this before. My question is I already have an Amazon prime account. Does this mean I have to use the email attached to prime account, or can I start a new email, like you suggested to have a dedicated email, for this review endeavor? Please let me know how I should do this. I rather open up a new email account so it’s separate from the one I use for my kids school, doctors, and personal things. Thank you in advance for your help.
