“how to get free products to review from amazon _amazon product review wordpress plugin”

As the Amazon complaint explains, the fake reviewers ran their scheme through a work-for-site site called Fiverr. They allegedly used hundreds of fake Amazon account names and IP addresses in order to pepper the site with fake reviews. The text of the reviews are typically supplied by the people who hired them.

try the new 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

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

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.

Sounds like the customer was still under the impression that discounted products meant you had to leave an incentivized review. Perhaps they just weren’t aware of it. As mentioned by others in this thread, if you didn’t break the rules I wouldn’t worry too much.

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.

I am old and would like to find some honest companies where I can use their products and send in my review and maybe get to keep some things mainly electronics books ect.I can also turn the products back in with review if need be.I am afraid of getting a bad company,how do u know if they are legitimate companies?

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

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!!!

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.

There’s one review in particular that stands out to me. It wasn’t a Vine member who wrote it, so it may not be relevant, but it’s the first review for a popular product that has thousands of reviews for it. This review was entertaining to read and has received hundreds of “Yes” votes saying it was helpful. The problem I have with it is that I own the product, and while the review was entertaining, it was very inaccurate. In this particular case, I don’t think it’s merely a matter of the reviewer having a different opinion, because many things written are factually inaccurate, and it was important information. And yet, the review is #1 out of thousands of others on Amazon.

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/

Vipon offers a variety of products for 50% to 100% off and is also one of the oldest review sites. They were previously known as AMZ Review Trader. It is free to join and a great option if you want to test several products at once.

Studies have shown that there’s actually a purchase bias- some people like an item more because they have picked it out and purchased it. Also the latest research I’ve read show that no matter the source, earlier reviews tend to be more positive, and then equal out over time.

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

How it works: To receive free products for testing, you can visit the ‘testing’ area of the site (under rewards), and apply to test products. If you are chosen to test the product then it will be sent out to you.

> 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.”

However, since I bought it for him, I was the one that had to load it, and that was not fun. I am not a computer programmer, but I can usually load a new piece of software on a PC. This took my sister and I an hour to get it to load. We had to go to youtube to figure out how to load it. That is why I gave it a 3 star. So other than the loading issue, I got a good price on Amazon and it shipped in plenty of time for his birthday. So if you are buying this for a kid I would recommend it.

This review program is part of the GMYLE brand, “developing MacBook, Tablet, Smartphone Accessories.” Like similar programs, they only offer their own brand’s products for review. When applying: Reviewers in “United States will receive first round pick. United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Canada, France, Italy and Spain will become available after.”

Now, let’s assume am an Amazon shopper and I want to get free products. But I don’t know which sellers out of the thousands of sellers on Amazon will give me their product for free in exchange for my review. I could contact them directly, but this would be time-consuming and again, who know who many will actually give me their product.

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

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 🙂

Hi Tristan, thank you for this article, it’s great read. For some time now I was thinking how to start and from where, finally last night I updated my Amazon account, and I also signed up to some of Web sites I found on your list. Your article really opened my eyes, and helped me understand how ‘this world’ works.

I wish Amazon had an option to turn off all “paid reviews”, which usually have the following disclaimer at the very bottom of a 10-paragraph review that you’ll never read to the end: “I was provided a discount for my fair and unbiased review of this product.” Fair and unbiased? Please. Claiming to provide an unbiased review that then completely fails to notice serious product flaws is blatantly dishonest. I especially hate the paid reviews that start with, “I bought this for my relative/friend/boss” etc., which misleads people, right off the bat, into believing the reviewer paid full price for the product.

For a decade, CR conducted independent testing and research to highlight the dangers of cigarettes. The Surgeon General’s Advisory Committee on Smoking and Health used CR’s work to draft its landmark report.

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

After you’ve completed your product test, you’ll usually be asked to write a review, fill out a survey, or participate in a discussion about the product.   It’s important that you be honest when you do this, even if you have some criticism for the product. The company wants to improve their product if needed. The more in-depth you go with your reviews and answers will give them valuable feedback.

While some sites are better than others, I still look at all of them on a daily basis every morning. Have any other questions or comments? Leave them below. Thanks again for reading and happy frugaling!

2) Imitated gameplay. Spores gameplay offers nothing new. The 5 stages to the game all imitate other types of games. (see other reviews for more depth) This makes the gameplay seem cheap, however, the gameplay is not what sells the game. If you buy spore, buy it for the creature creator which is very well done and offers a very intuitive designer that offers a large number of bits and pieces for your creatures. There is also a vehicle and building creator that is not as interesting to me, but offers that customization that makes the later stages of the game unique.

I do think there is a notable difference between ‘free’ and ‘discounted’, paying even a couple dollars for something seems to have some notable psychological effect. So I’m not a fan of Vine, which does special shipments of things a reviewer might not have any interest in at zero cost. However, *some* of these discount-in-exchange-for-a-review sites my wife has been using actually have some merit.

Today we are going to talk about third-party review sites that basically exist for one reason only–to connect Amazon sellers looking to get reviews on their product listings with Amazon shoppers who would like to get free products.

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.

Avoid reviewing group promotional items under the group affiliate link they’re using. If you review a promo under a group affiliate link, it’s too easy to get tangled into a seller relationship block or wipe.

The types of products that you test can vary depending on what these companies think will be a good fit for you. If you have children, you’re a great candidate to test stuff for kids and if you’re a runner you may get to test the latest running shoes. Products like food and electronics can be tested by just about everyone.

“how to get amazon products in exchange for review _best amazon product review sites”

Please be careful, some of the ones on your list are against Amazon Reviewer and Seller Terms of Service and you will have your profile flagged and possible account removal. Stopped going through your list when I hit “Deals for Reviews”. It is against Amazon TOS to offer additional incentives (IE Random winners of gift cards) to reviewers other than just the free product. Reviews are also being deleted left and right because sellers are abusing the reviewer rights by manipulating the system by offering too many free products for free or at discounts to get their ranks up. Won’t be long before the Amazon terms will be changed again and ALL of these sites will fall.

However, since I bought it for him, I was the one that had to load it, and that was not fun. I am not a computer programmer, but I can usually load a new piece of software on a PC. This took my sister and I an hour to get it to load. We had to go to youtube to figure out how to load it. That is why I gave it a 3 star. So other than loading issue, I got a good price on Amazon and it shipped in plenty of time for his birthday. So if you are buying this for a kid I would recommend it.

They also told me anyone who owns it should upgraded immediately or suffer reduced speeds. I’m very angry with them. This was a highly rated modem last May. And, they wonder why they have such a bad reputation?!?!?

Hey Angela! I have won a couple of sweepstakes, but that was years ago. Surveys are pretty saturated with people, so it’s more harder to win them nowadays. You’re better off completing surveys that offers money, points, and product testing.

I’ve seen a tea product review with 1000s of good reviews, and looking deeper it was a combination of reviews from other tea flavours because they lumped them all together in one listing (with the choice of changing the flavour before adding to cart). It sucks, you can’t see the reviews specific to that flavour and it’s misleading if you don’t take your time to look.

Trek to Teach is a nonprofit organization that sends fluent English speakers to teach in Nepal near the Himalayas. In addition to teaching, Trek to Teach strengthens local communities by helping schools build infrastructure, paint their classrooms, and find furniture.

My friend recommended me DEALSGO – a website sharing numerous amazon coupon code and return cash back after reviewing the product bought. I bought an android charge cable last month and I checked my account found that it return my cash back! It is really good!

I get quite a few products from EarningStation Panel and pay is very well when it comes to product testing.  I get stuff like foods, beauty products, and household items. There was a time I was paid $50 for testing a product not yet in stores. Definitely sign up with EarningStation! 💰 Pays by Cash and Gift Cards

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.

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

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

The guy said all the nasty things to me because I was excited I received a product earlier than expected. I have a terminal illness and I don’t get to be out a lot. Also I live in very small town where a lot of items are not offered. I included in my review on this serum there were no miracles in a jar and it takes time for anyone to see results yet I was impressed with the product and what I had experienced in the week of use. I also stated that what works for me may not work for another. Everyone reacts differently to products. The man then says to me you were just so scared the club would kick out so you hurried to get the review in. No one has told me a time. The amz review club has a place to say I’m reviewing but the point being I was impressed and even subscribed to the product at full price for future shipments.

5.      Solicit the top Amazon reviewers. Amazon holds a list of their top reviewers – a compilation of esteemed reviewers who are valued for their insightful and objective critiques. Many of these top Amazon reviewers also hold titles such as “Top Ten Reviewer,” or “Hall of Fame Reviewer,” which are displayed alongside their reviews, making their reviews ultra-valuable.

As the name implies, the focus is on Toilet Tree products. At the point of writing, they claim that their membership number is adequate and not looking out for more. But they use to recruit new members on weekly basis. So just fill out the form and they will get in touch if they see you as a good addition to their pool of members.

For pinecone research is it possible to complete just surveys without having to do any product testing? Do they notify you prior to sending you a product or do they just show up at your door? And would you happen to know how one would go about cancelling their membership with this panel? Thanks in advance!

Books definitely have fake reviews. I know, because I’m the assistant to an author, and it is ridiculously difficult to get real reviews. So when you see a LOT of them, you can pretty much bet the majority are fake. Fan letters can flood in via email, but just try and get those very same fans to post reviews on Amazon. They just can’t be bothered. (It would be great if Amazon offered discounts or something to incentivize real reviewers.)

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

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.

I was a vine reviewer. Till I gave 1 star reviews and told the truth about some children books. Amazon took my Vine priveledges away…And told me why. Sorry. I could not lie to other parents, and yes I do not regret my decision. Even if I don’t have a vine membership any longer. Even if I could get laptops, HD tv, furniture, appliances, and the latest technologies FREE….I am sticking to my morals and honesty.

You know what, I should have come back and update my comment. I checked my profile and found that email address was incorrect. The only offers I had previously received were from people who made comments on my reviews. At any rate, I fixed my incorrect email address and have more than a dozen in the last 2 days. Some are items I can use and would like (a travel pack, a passport wallet that holds your ID and CCs) and I passed on (an i-watch band, since I don’t own an Apple Watch).

  These companies below are my personal favorites I use to get free products at home to test, and get paid by either PayPal, Cash, Gift Cards, or Merchandise. Sign up now before these panels don’t accept new members! If you’re the main shopper in your household you should do really well.  With the holidays here, now is a great time to join these programs and make extra money.

If you need to contact Amazon about a review, you should email review-appeals@amazon.com with the order number and your profile link. That email is manned by real people who focus on nothing but reviews, and is much safer than just calling or emailing them through the website.

Also, a lot of Vine and top reviewers DO update reviews. We don’t have to, but we do. I spent about 16 hours last week updating reviews from 2002 on, saying what was still great, and what wasn’t, or noting problems that arose, and trying to delete reviews on items no longer offered, least the seller stick something else on that listing that my review wasn’t relevant to. I love to see updates when I am shopping- I see them fairly frequently, but I buy about EVERYTHING from Amazon, except fresh food.

Power drills and makeup mirrors having no connection? Really? Do you live under a rock? As a former beauty pageant winner and current toolbelt diva, I take issue with your statement sir. In fact, my last purchase on Amazon included these items: a Rockwell Versacut power saw, 150 pink Swarovski crystals, a bass tuner, a bottle of Beautiful by Estee Lauder (my signature scent), and a set of under drive pulleys for my Cobra. People, in general, are so much more than what you see on the surface, that what you see as completely unrelated and suspect is nothing more than an average shopping trend at a retailer that offers every conceivable product ever created.

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

Further, in many situations- these sites that solicit reviews by giving out their book or product make you submit the review back to them so they can see what you write – after all they want you to promote the product they aren’t giving the item away to be nice. if you keep leaving bad reviews, it can affect your ability to keep receiving free things. A publisher is not going to want to give you advanced copies of books if you negatively review things. That’s another way reviews get manipulated.

One thing I do, is try to put myself in a reviewers shoes, and think back to myself and what mattered to me. Book reviews may not be quite the same as a product review, but an example I remember is when I discovered the book “Wool,” by Hugh Howey.

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

I filled out so many testing item surveys it’s not funny. It’s been s few months and I don’t even get any emails for anything related to the site. It’s not worth it. I also did the surveys for offer bucks.com and you have to have all 10 validated before you get your $100, I have only had one validated and it’s been months. I emailed them twice and never got a response. Don’t waste your time like I did.

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

Fine but the problem is that it is impossible for a customer to tell whether your review is honest or not. And given the high rate of 5-stars, it’s likely your message will be interpreted as coming from a shill, and thus ignored, even if it was honest.

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

I just got OB tampons through them get something I can’t use now since i had surgery to fix some women issues. I have been quite a bit from crowdtap lately I am going to be getting some shampoo and conditioners and hair color here soon.

I love how you are so willing to share your expertise with others. I never would have known about the site. Unfortunately, every time I’ve tried to participate, either the items are sold out (even when I buy it right as the time starts) or when II go to purchase something, it’s quite a bit more than it send. I enter the coupon code, but would have to pay quite a bit more than it says. Is this just because I’m low on the chart because I just started or is it a scam by the companies who are trying to pull the old bait and switch. I’ve found this especially true if the item is supposed to cost me just one dollar. I’ve been checking for over a couple of weeks now, but haven’t found any valid deals. There have been items that I would have gotten and reviewed if they hadn’t jacked up the price. I’ve also received the message that the people (Janet and Deborah) above have commented on. How many hours do you spend just looking for products that are valid? I’ve spent an hour or two a day, and right now it doesn’t seem worth the time. Do I just need to be patient and keep writing reviews? I have reviewed around 80 products on Amazon. I realize that’s just a fraction of what most people have. Because I’m an author and editor, I do enjoy writing reviews regardless of what I get out of it so I’ll keep reviewing products I’ve bought, but not sure about the AMZ [Trader] site. Thanks for your patience and diligence. I do appreciate your time and effort to teach people like me.

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.

I pretty much skip over the Vine reviews — or consider them more of a product brochure than a review. Most of them are too long. All I really want to know is in general, are the purchasers pleased with their purchases and why/why not. Wish Amazon would limit the length of reviews.

Hello Estefany! I-say before and after the survey tells you how many points you’ll get for testing a product with them. Once you test the product, complete the follow up survey, they will tell you again how many points you got.

Still, if it’s audio quality you’re concerned with, you can find better-sounding speakers at this price. The option to sync the Echo up with an external sound system and use it more strictly as a point of control would be a good fix, and a nice touch for the audiophiles out there. That’s an option with the pint-sized Echo Dot, but not with the full-sized Echo. Amazon seems pretty committed to the idea of the Echo as an all-in-one device.

They have many products in the Dashboard to choose from. They use a Review Leaderboard to pick top Elite Deal Club reviewers to receive Amazon Gift Cards (possible violation of Amazon Reviewer rules.) Like AMZRC above, they too have a great affiliate program that pays! Available for reviewers in USA, UK, and Canada.

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.

Great article! Thanks for your help personalizing my profile- I didn’t realize that was something I could do! I was wondering if you’ve ever personally contacted companies to test their products or if they generally just approach you? I really considered going the “bold” and “direct” route you mentioned, but I don’t want to get into trouble from Amazon either, haha. Also- if they contact you- is it always through your email- or is there a way for them to contact you through Amazon?

The Platform offers reviewers a personalized profile page, documenting their reviewing history. If a reviewer has completed at least one review in two years, they become a ‘Recognized Reviewer’. ‘Outstanding Reviewer’ status is awarded to those who belong to the top 10th percentile in terms of the number of completed reviews for a specific journal in two years. Editors can also hand pick reviewers and award them with a ‘Certificate of Excellence’ and other perks.

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.

One Opinion Panel is a Top Rated Product Testing Company and I receive several products a month.  They have exclusive high paying focus groups to join paying their members $100 or more! 💰 Pays by Cash, PayPal and Visa Prepaid Cards

By Vangie Beal In electronic commerce, product reviews are used on shopping sites to give customers an opportunity to rate and comment on products they have purchased, right on the product page. Other consumers can read these when making a purchase decision. Often, the company will include a URL on printed literature or e-mail marketing to invite customers to review their service after a transaction has been completed.

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!

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!

“amazon product review email +how to get free amazon products for a review”

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

If you want to add more emails to your email sequence, you can do it. However, I wouldn’t recommend it, because that could be considered both spammy for Amazon and annoying for your customers. Also, if you combine marketing inserts with email follow-up sequences, the chances of getting more reviews will considerably increase.

wow, louida, you have a nice picture in the meet me. and the other small one hello is a good one too. its nice to meet you. you are a really nice person. you deserve to be thanked for all of your help. you are so kind.

These days, almost any “generic” item that you buy is sold from an (often Chinese) drop-shipper who invents a company name on the fly. Usually that company name is just two completely random words joined together, in order to avoid trademark infringement. E.g. “CoolPow” or “Flying Show”. Heck, I’ve even seen drop-shippers get lazy and use names like “abcGOOdef”. Seriously?

Actually, Amazon does require that you have an account and you’ve purchased something before you can review. I’m an author, and I had 5 different people buy a book directly from me, and when they went to review it, because they hadn’t ever bought anything, they weren’t allowed to. I tested the theory by making a dummy account, and I was told the same thing.

Snagshout is one of the more popular Amazon Review Sites. Snagshout only allows you to review one product at a time, meaning you have to order the product, test it, review it, and get it verified by the Snagshout team before you can review another product.

Do you regularly write reviews on Amazon? Are you a Vine member? Can you share any tips or tricks on how to get invited into the program? What has Amazon sent you to review? Let us know in the comments. 

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

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.

You can not do this on all phones, you may have to use a laptop/tablet to do it. If you try and submit the text/video and images at the same time, the approval process is longer. The screen videos and images much more closely. For some reason though, they do not do it on Edits. Videos and images can take anywhere from no time at all to post to up to a few days depending on what is going on at Amazon. Good luck! Lynn

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

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.

As the name implies, the focus is on Toilet Tree products. At the point of writing, they claim that their membership number is adequate and not looking out for more. But they use to recruit new members on weekly basis. So just fill out the form and they will get in touch if they see you as a good addition to their pool of members.

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

I couldn’t find a single five-star review with a “Verified Purchase” tag confirming that the reviewer had bought the product. Meanwhile, every single one of the 19 one-star reviews for the Samcable dongles were verified purchases, and all had the same basic complaint: “Doesn’t work.” Here’s a taste of what you’d see from one-star reviews:

Social proof is some powerful stuff, and the more proof you have, the more potent it becomes. An item rated as 4.5 stars reviewed by 10 people won’t sell as well as an item rated as 4 stars reviewed by 300 people. More reviews look better, are more convincing, and boost your visibility when someone searches for your product on Amazon.

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.

Additionally, reviewers may give their opinions on items for which they have no expertise or real experience and therefore have no frame of reference about how well something works by comparison. It’s hard to say how good something is if you don’t know what else is out there.

I asked around at work to see if anyone have a charger for it and a flashlight that could fit it. They didn’t. So, I reviewed the packaging and quality of the materials, and I also made sure to alert other potential buyers that it looked like a AA battery but was in fact a larger one for super bright flashlights. I recently got a free flashlight that does use that battery size and will be updating my review.

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

The article has some good points but focuses a lot on fake reviews. More problematic in my opinion are the worthless reviews from real people who never actually used the product they got for free (or, nowadays, for a few pennies.) Or the Vine reviewer who eBays the products without opening the package – you can tell.

Customer reviews are one of the most valuable tools we offer customers for making informed purchase decisions, and we work hard to make sure they are doing their job. In just the past year, we’ve improved review ratings by introducing a machine learned algorithm that gives more weight to newer, more helpful reviews; applying stricter criteria to qualify for the Amazon verified purchase badge; and suspending, banning or suing thousands of individuals for attempting to manipulate reviews.

I turned to two sites, Fakespot and ReviewMeta, which use publicly available review metadata and algorithms to try to suss out which reviews are “unreliable” or “unnatural.” The Samcable listing with 673 total reviews got a grade of F from Fakespot, with it declaring that 100 percent of the reviews were “low-quality.” After discarding what its algorithm determined were untrustworthy reviews, it adjusted that 4.6 average rating down to a 0.0 rating. ReviewMeta wasn’t much kinder. The highly rated Samcables went from an average review score of 4.6 to 1.1 using ReviewMeta’s criteria, deeming only 81 reviews out of the 673 not unnatural in some way.

“We all like to think we can always stay objective. But if you didn’t purchase the product to fill a need, the flaws just don’t bother you as much. And if you don’t have to consider sending it back, you’re not going to think about the flaws as much.”

For pinecone research is it possible to complete just surveys without having to do any product testing? Do they notify you prior to sending you a product or do they just show up at your door? And would you happen to know how one would go about cancelling their membership with this panel? Thanks in advance!

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!
