That is one reason why Amazon has become so popular and is arguably the most successful e-commerce site in Internet history. Now, it is even possible to shop for free when you shop through an Amazon review site.

I am a product designer and create a new brand in Amazon. I read lots of promotion and started to invest my time and resources however there are millions millions of “case” even though I am offering some designer’s fashion but it will take long long time for my design to surface out, should I need to wait for “step by step” moving or aggressively shift to other less competitive catalogue to start other product design?

In a blog post, Amazon said it’s improving its review ratings by introducing an algorithm that gives weight to reviews that are more helpful. It said it’s also suspending, banning or suing “thousands of individuals for attempting to manipulate reviews.” 

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 mostly agree, but I’ve been on Amazon since 1996 and don’t think I’ve ever received an invite. It’s possible that I received an invite when Vine debut, but turned it down because I was too busy at the time and just never received another one. Regardless, I’ve purchased a lot on Amazon and have written reviews for almost everything, simply because I believe reviews are important to online shopping, but I’ve waited for a Vine invite for years without receiving one.

No. 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.

Amazon is the place where people can find essential items at good prices or profitably to sell their merchandize. This website has been helping out business owners and common folk for many years. Time for you to harness its potential and make profitable deals.

I’ve been on the top 500 Reviewers list for a while and have occasionally contemplated contacting sellers and asking for a specific product to review, but never have because it just seems tacky to me. As far as I know, doing so isn’t against Amazon TOS. It IS FCC regulation that you must disclose in your review that you received a discounted or free sample to review.

Let’s say I am an Amazon seller and I want to get some reviews on my product(s) in order to drive up the sales. Finding buyers individually and contacting them would be time-consuming and tedious. Not to mention, you can’t be sure if the people who you send your product to for free will even leave a review.

Don’t list interests or review items that you have no interest in, and certainly don’t list interests that are outside your ability or skill set. If you have no idea what JavaScript is, then don’t list it as an interest in the hopes someone would send you a book on the subject. Same goes for high end items like projectors. People do get sent projectors from time to time via the Vine program, but writing “I love reviewing projectors!” is not the way to go about it: writing well-written reviews on projectors you own is. We’ll get into how to write review below.

So give this exercise a bit of elbow grease and see where it gets you. The best way to manage this is to spend a good 15 minutes a day contacting websites and blogs on your list. You’ll get through it in no time.

Jungle Launch has an interesting concept where it actually consolidates multiple Amazon sellers in their collective effort to enhance the visibility of their products in the market. This arrangement certainly works well for me as I can be exposed to a great variety of products without going many places to look for them. Again the reward is free products or super fantastic discounts.

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.

When a Seller does has a big ticket item up for review, they pretty selective about who they want to review it. They want a great, well-written 5-star review, so they are likely looking at the recent reviews on their competitors’ products that are 5-star and well-written (as explained in this how-to for Sellers). This helps boost their chances of getting the same.

Yes with BzzAgent you do get points you can use on MyPoints.com to use your points on getting free merchandise. I actually never spend my points and just let it expire since all I care about with BzzAgent is getting the free products to test.

For those products that do not show as “Verified Purchase” I try to take some pictures and add them to my review. This way it demonstrates that I actually do have the product. And of course I always write “I received this product free in return for my honest review.”

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.

  1. My guess is that this is a reviewer that does not know about the new rule changes. Should I contact the reviewer and let them know about the change and explain that we were not expecting a review in exchange for the discount?
    Before the ban on incentivized reviews, Amazon had tolerated reviews that were given in exchange for a free or discounted product — as long as the reviewers were upfront about that. But that system was gamed, according to a report earlier this year from Consumerist. Some reviewers posted hundreds of reviews in just a few weeks, which casts some doubt as to whether they were able to legitimately try out the products. 
    In a statement to Select All, Amazon said: “Amazon is investing heavily to detect and prevent inauthentic reviews. These reviews make up a tiny percentage of all reviews on Amazon but even one is unacceptable. In addition to advance detection, we’ve filed lawsuits against more than 1,000 defendants for reviews abuse and will continue to pursue legal action against the root cause of reviews abuse as well as the number of individuals and organizations who supply fraudulent reviews in exchange for compensation. Customer reviews are one of the most valuable tools we offer for making informed purchase decisions and we work hard to make sure they are doing their job.”
    There is also too much of an incentive to provide a ton of reviews and for positive ones to be up-voted (marked as helpful). I’ve given free products 1- and 2-star reviews and the manufacturer will campaign down-vote (mark as unhelpful) in order to bury the review. The “helpful” votes determining ranking in Amazon’s listing is part of the problem (as is making badges for top reviewers and allowing people like Harriet Klausner to be “Hall of Fame” reviewers). The system itself encourages the corruption at multiple levels and allows too much control to be placed in the hands of the sellers.
