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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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