And closing things out, we have this Asfour Crystal Tut Anhk Amon Chair. According to the product description, the chair is made with some of the finest crystal in the world and took about 630 hours to build. When it was available (apparently someone actually bought this thing) it ran at about $140,000.
#14 – Elite Deal Club – can’t order anything. Every time you click on a product to get the coupon code, you get a message that says “code not found”. I’ve even written emails to them, and still not working. A couple of people who are signed up with Elite Deal Club, get the same message. So, does not work.
“I’ve been using AMZRC for the last couple of months and initially I wasn’t sure of what results I would get because there’s so much competition out there with similar review websites. However I was pleasantly surprised! Initially I got a great deal as a seller because I signed up for the annual membership which allows me to post deals for my Amazon products every 3 days. I had amazing results such as an increase in sales as well as loads of genuine 5 star reviews for my product. This worked wonders for my Amazon listing and my product was rated top 20 in its category. Thanks to the team at AMZRC you guys have great support and I’m loving the new website.”
Thrilled to see a new update. I’m considering the upgrade to the LG OLED, but the price for the 65″ model is a bit daunting. Given my room size (small), the 55″ is an option. I recall in the previous incarnation of this article there were some concerns about display quality / panel in the 55″ Vizio P-series sets vs. the 65″ ones, such that you weren’t able to recommend the smaller TVs even though the 65″+ models were excellent.
When you give shoppers all of the information they’re looking for — including ratings reviews — they’re more likely to convert. At PowerReviews, we’ve found that when a product without reviews adds one or more reviews, the conversion rate for that product increases by 65%, on average.
Wow, uh, I’m reading the comments here and they are not like the usual MUO type of comments. They all seem sort of bot-ish right down to the names — “Jodie Jones, “Betty Booker,” etc. And 125? How often does any MUO article get that many comments? Something just doesn’t seem right…
It is not unethical, just stick to reviewing what you do know about the product. Everyone has limited experience with products to some degree, just stick to your experience and the facts. You don’t have to mention you lost it.
Ciao is one of the biggest paid survey sites, in addition to that Ciao also pays its members to write reviews on verity of subjects, from electronics and CDs to books, restaurants and anything in between. You earn money every time your review is red or rated by other members. Once you have £5 in your account, you can request a payment.
When they DELIBERATELY AND WITH FULL KNOWLEDGE OF THE ENSUING CONSEQUENCES eliminated their 20–word minimum rule for product reviews, this opened up the floodgates for the cheats to post MILLIONS of fake product reviews.
It’s worth noting at this stage that not every user of product testing sites gets sent something to test. This is because there are 1000s of users and they simply can’t afford to send out 1000+ free TVs for example. But they do say, if you don’t buy a ticket you can’t win the raffle…
I was a member of Walmart’s Spark Reviewer program, which they have just announced (via an email to the Spark Reviewers) that they are ending. I really enjoyed getting the free products (f.ex., things as inexpensive as a new variety of Triscuits or as fancy as a new convertible laptop onto which I was instructed to download Windows 10 the day it was released), and would love to continue doing something similar for another website’s program (such as Amazon Vine). Are there other programs similar to Amazon Vine or Walmart Spark Reviewer out there, and if so, would experience as a Walmart Spark Reviewer be at all helpful in getting an invitation to participate?
Bzzagent does not pay you. Not sure where you got your information, but it is product testing plain and simple. I myself have done several campaigns for them, so I can speak from experience. Also, you can check their website.
It’s tough making your living online – the web has a way of bringing out the worst in people as many users hide under the internet’s veil of anonymity to spread slander they’d never dream of voicing IRL. It’s not a matter of if you’ll ever get a bad review – it’s just a matter of when.
Start reviewing big ticket items you own that are in the categories you wish to be asked to review more items. Prove to Sellers that you can write a review that helps their sales. DO NOT inflate a rating to 5-stars in the hopes that it attracts big ticket items—this is counterproductive to what our community is here to do for the customer that relies on it to make a purchase.
Having said all this, unless you currently sell a product that’s going viral or has been seen on Shark Tank, garnering customer reviews is not easy. There are, however, many simple and affordable ways to entice customers to tell the world what they think of the products they’ve bought.
“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.
I hope you did what Tristan said! That was some good advice lol. I had a similar situation recently. My husband generally has a beard. He’ll shave in the summer sometimes, but he has facial hair. I was asked to review some “beard oil”, and jumped on it. I left the house to run errands, and called the hubby several hours later to chat. I mentioned to him over the phone that I’d gotten the beard oil for him to try, and he made a kind of strangled sound. He’d decided to shave. We laughed, and planned to just return the item at our own cost because crap happens. But I got lucky and have a teenager trying to grow out his facial hair. I also checked other ways to use the oil, and tried it as a moisturizer on my own skin.
I was so excited to receive my first request to review a product from a manufacturer. Then, I came across the line saying they expected it to be no less than four stars. I tend to be extremely honesty. If the product is worthy of 4 or 5 stars, I would give it. I’ll admit, I tend to keep 5 star reviews for extremely outstanding products. I do give them, but few products or books are perfect. Is asking for a 4 or 5 star rating consider normal and is it ethical?
Cool, glad to hear it! As for a list of sellers or contacts… no, I don’t think there is a public list. I can see that as being something that would be quickly abused, which may have something to do with no one publicizing it. A recent comment on this post mentioned “Genesis Reviewer Program, New Trent Pilot User Program, and Gmyle Lab”. I Googled them and came up some interesting programs to review beta and production products. Googling “Genesis Reviewer Program” will yield a good amount of companies since this seems to be a universal term for this sort of thing.
I wholeheartedly agree with Robert. There’s some fundimental ethical flaws with the vine program. It’s a selection bias. And as he mentioned 99% of the 4-5 stars reveiws will be from vine members and the ratings below from customers who purchased the product. Amazon’s interest to list positive reviews are within their own financial gain (a lot of products are direct from China, so the cost to profit ratio is exceedingly high). I’ve noticed now that when looking at products to review the negative reviews to get a “real” view of the product.
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.
Amazon is a systemic, fraudulent, corrupt company. Bezos is aware of all of the issues that the programmers utilize to maximize profit. None are “mistakes” or errors. Doesn’t anyone realize that Amazon makes $$ from EVERY item? So sellers that “ship” from China with goods never coming, to blocking sellers accounts and holding their money, under the guise of protecting the consumer, to not really caring about fraudulent reviews (bad reviews mean the item may not sell), to the most outrageous and systemic gravy train there is = subscriptions! Going down card after card until something is approved, singing people up for “trials” knowing that they already had one, so it’s charged right away, to allowing children to sign up for subscriptions, to IMDB – the company is the devil reincarnate. When will someone sue the bastards?
Hi I’m Sean Work and I invented an espresso machine that can grind and brews fresh espresso drinks in your car so you can have uber-fresh lattes on the way to work. I would like to send you my mini machine so you can try it out.
For the last 3 to 4 years I have been a Professional NewEgg “EggXpert” Product Reviewer. I got this gig by honestly posting reviews AND comments about any product that I either owned or had an opportunity to use and/or try. After a while NewEgg Contacted me and said that they had gotten so many “GOOD” comments about both my reviews and/or comments that they’d like me to become part of the team. I then asked them what was involved and they told me ALL they wanted someone who would post HONEST reviews about a product. To this I said YES, sign me up.
Book bloggers have the uncanny ability to passionately and tirelessly spread the word about their views—and reviews. Unfortunately, many review books on their personal websites and blogs, and not all are posting those reviews (or variations thereof) on Amazon. But don’t let that stop you.
Perhaps I’m being skeptical so I copied the information (I left out seller information and link). Perhaps it’s just a language barrier and they were telling me 4 other 5 stars are the best, not that they expect 4 or 5 stars.
