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.
