Jump Send helps me to grow my business without spending hours on tedious tasks. The time I save is worth the investment alone, but what’s even better is that it also has a profound impact on increasing my sales!
I do NOT contact companies before I write a bad review about a product. There was one time where I wrote a bad review about some earphones and the company sent out another set because they thought mine were faulty. Second set worked better, so I amended my review. I also once got asked to take down a bad review stating ‘I did not know how to use the product’ (they were ear buds.) I do not take do reviews, only amend them.
I am really enjoying it the moment and am still surprised at how much momentum it has gathered since updating my profile page! From the emails requesting reviews it seems the sellers do indeed look at the reviews of similar products they are selling and seem to have found me that way. I’ve also had a couple of companies sending me further products after I had published my first review for them. I have been very lucky in that I have use for most of the products, I give unbiased and honest reviews and thankfully haven’t been asked to give only positive reviews. I have had follow up emails requesting the review immediately upon me receiving the product although I have always made it clear in my first response to a request that I will publish the review only after I have had a reasonable period to test and try out the product although obviously some need more time than others but I tend not to leave it any longer than 10days although with vitamin supplements I do give that a 3-4 week period but I do let the seller know this in advance. I will point out in my reviews the Pro’s and Con’s of each product but I do it in a constructive manner and use a positive, friendly tone, well as much as can be conveyed in writing as such. One thing that the really appreciate is the addition of any photographs if possible with the written review so now I try to ensure to provide these where appropriate.
To set up your alerts, use the Options tab in your sidebar. First, choose whether or not to receive alerts for negative product reviews, and then tell FeedbackFive when and how to receive your alerts – individually or as a daily digest, and via text, email or both.
I will check out your blog! I had Googled “test products for free” and the first thing that came up was a link to your blog about earning free money along with the article on Squidoo lol I liked that it was a real person that is testing stuff so I’m glad I commented on this!
On behalf of Giveaway Service Team, I wish to thank you for writing such a positive comment about us. I would also like to point out that the discounted price on our website must not exceed $2. This means authors review products they got for free or at a highly discounted price.
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 🙂
In my opinion they’re not requiring it, just strongly suggesting what they’d like. I actually had to deal with a seller yesterday who emailed me about a previous review that they claimed was hurting sales. I had given an item 3 stars and they wanted me to change it to four or more.
Melinda, Always submit your text review first. They are approved quicker than reviews with images/videos. After it has successfully posted (check your Profile area to see which ones are complete or watch for the email) go back and Edit your review to include the pictures/video. Right under the Text/Comment field, on the right there is a button that says Upload , it is to the left of the Submit button. Hit Upload and browse to your files. If you have a video, do that before single images. Uploading a video can take a while, a blue progress bar under the Video icon will show you your status. While that is uploading you can add your pictures. When they are all uploaded, hit Submit.
Even if you don’t manage your feedback in FeedbackFive, you can still sign up for an account to track product reviews. If you do that, you will have access to the “My Product Reviews” interface and will be able to see other pages, but we won’t import orders or send emails on your behalf. If you’re a FeedbackFive user already, “My Product Reviews” will appear in your dashboard’s sidebar. You can track two ASINs for free, or you can sign up for this enhancement to your account, which starts at $9.95 per month.
But after reading this post, I went in and cleaned up a few of mine that weren’t detailed, and I scanned all of my titles to make sure they would stand out to a consumer as the type that would be helpful.
L’Oreal Consumer Testing Program: When L’Oreal develops new makeup, skincare, or haircare products, they look for women to test them. You’ll get to keep everything you test and you may even get some bonus products for completing your review.
To get some perspective, we spoke with Bing Liu, a professor in the department of computer science at the University of Illinois at Chicago, whose focuses include sentiment analysis, opinion mining, and lifelong machine learning. He has written textbooks on the subjects. We wanted to know his opinion on whether it is possible for a program or group of programs to evaluate reviews and correctly determine their validity. Liu’s thoughts:
I’ve stopped accepting anything free from companies, with the exception of books I get from NetGalley. I’ve had too many products that are just crappy, and I get way too many emails about products for review, mostly, these days, from Chinese companies.
I am currently an Amazon reviewer in the UK and was wondering if you were allowed to actually contact a supplier / manufacturer that trades on Amazon directly and say to them that you would be prepared to write a product review on Amazon in exchange for a test sample.
Take a screen shot of your window with the code you pasted in, I always try and copy/paste them for accuracy, and the error message you got. Include the Total Section. Email this to the proper person. Different websites and fb groups have different rules on how to proceed with this. That way you have proof that you typed in the correct thing and it didn’t work. So many times someone tries to tell you that you did it wrong, lol.
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.
And if I chose to respond to this rather lucratively illustrated offer, will my review site user agreement change in ways that may turn out to be unfavorable for me? For example, would they be able to use my name and/or email to reach out to other sellers they are soliciting? Will my information no longer full under the current privacy agreement? There are other possible implications that I’m not listing as to not to belabor the point.
Paid surveys is a great way to earn extra money on the side and plus the perks of getting free products and more. Don’t feel discourage and keep completing surveys and you’ll reap the benefits! Let me know if you need any other help.
Update: Amazon Review Sites can no longer require you to leave a review, but they are strongly encouraged. By having a strong Amazon Profile, you’re more likely to have sellers approve you for a discounted product.
