I’d recommend Dollar Review Club. Free. I’ve reviewed 4,5 deals there with little issues. Happen one time that the code went expired and their customer service feedbacked to me within several hours and I got my quota back to claim another product. Better than what I experienced in other review sites where my question kept no response and I could only find it through FAQ with anger. If you are reviewer I think you can give a try. (Also found that it’s also free for seller to upload products there now…? interesting)
But the biggest problem for Amazon wasn’t just technical or user experience wise. The ReviewMeta study was a big PR hit to Amazon’s brand image: the aforementioned study was cited in many influential blogs and sites, including The Next Web, TechCrunch, USA Today, Business Insider, and Bloomberg.
> 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.”
I’ve been thinking of blogging again for the affiliate possibilities. Problem is, finding a topic. I never got products from companies when I blogged before. What’s the secret — is it the topics covered?
Among other things, our tests gather data on features, ease of use, durability and the level of customer support provided by the manufacturer. Using a proprietary weighted system (i.e., a complicated algorithm), the data is scored and the rankings laid out, and we award the three top-ranked products with our Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards.
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 door? And would you happen to know how one would go about cancelling their membership with this panel? Thanks in advance!
Write your message. You can say something like “Hi, my name is XXXX. I really enjoy doing product reviews for seller’s and I would be happy to provide an honest review in exchange for a free product. Here’s a link to my Amazon profile (your link goes here) and here are a few reviews I’ve recently done (include the permalink to the reviews, if you have any).”
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.
Still, the Echo is more than a souped-up speaker with Siri-like smarts — it’s the connected home experience you didn’t know you wanted. It’s no longer the first Alexa gadget I’d recommend, but it’s still a fascinating product and a worthy buy if you can catch it on sale during Prime Day or Black Friday.
This is now the newest kid on the block, having just launched July 2016. They are also supporting reviewers in more countries than any other review site I know of! 12 countries! USA, UK, France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Japan, India, Mexico, China
It is in Amazon’s best interest for products to have positive reviews – this builds faith in the Amazon Marketplace (makes people feel good about any potential purchase) and encourages sellers to pay for amazon shill services, (VINE) much like YELP extorts local business owners.
I’m a Vine reviewer and I take my role very seriously. There is a bias in that I won’t request products I don’t think I will have a use for, but I have no problem leaving a 1 or 2-star review if I think the product warrants it. My most popular reviews tend to be the longer ones – 600+ words – as I get into a lot of detail you won’t get from the product description. I also review a lot of my own purchases.
How do I know they are fake you ask… Easy, look at the other products that the person has reviewed, there usually are not any, but when they are they are all from the same seller. Another way is that someone will have like 50 reviews in a 2 day period, but then no other positive reviews, ever. Another way, You will see a reviewer review different products with different descriptions about who they are (e.g., “I am a professional plumber so…”, “As a professional photographer, I think…”, “As a large man, I found…”, “As a single mother…” all from the same person). Another indicator is when they use the same broken English in multiple 5 star reviews or misspell the exact same word the same way under different names (no verified purchase, of course). Of course, none of these are 100% guarantees they are fake, but once you start looking for them, it becomes obvious.
