When it comes to getting paid for reviewing websites, it is important to put honestly ahead of everything else. After all, your reviews will play a big rule in many people’s decisions in buying a product or service.
Do you think reviewer rank factors into it? It seems like a company just trying to reach a varied audience would look at the top reviewers to find someone. I like reviewing (and admittedly, free stuff) but I feel like I’m at a slight disadvantage in my reviews getting noticed as I’m not in the top 10,000 that you can scroll through.
Each day, millions of consumers use Amazon’s websites to assist with their purchasing decisions. In order to make those decisions more informed, Amazon publishes customer reviews of products and services available on Amazon.com. Amazon pioneered customer reviews 20 years ago and is now home to hundreds of millions of unique reviews. Reviews provide a forum for sharing authentic feedback about products and services – positive or negative. Amazon does not remove reviews because they are critical; Amazon believes all helpful information can inform its customers’ buying decisions. As long as they abide by Amazon’s Customer Review Guidelines, Amazon’s customers can review and rate products or services available on Amazon’s websites. Honest and unbiased reviews allow customers to trust that they can shop with confidence on Amazon.com; reviews also help fulfill Amazon’s mission to be Earth’s most customer-centric company. In short, Amazon takes the credibility of its customer reviews very seriously. 3.

Another problem in not having any control over who takes the coupons is that not all reviewers are sane people. My products are good. Less than 5% of the reviews have 3 stars. All the rest are 4 or 5 stars. But someone gave me a 2 star. When I looked at this person’s other reviews, I saw that she habitually gives bad reviews to products that generally receive good reviews. She is obviously a disgruntled or maybe careless/thoughtless/jealous/nasty individual. Had I seen her track record I would never have approved her to receive my product.
You may have noticed that some of our reviews and rankings are slow to update. That could be because very little has changed in a particular product group. For example, stand mixers have not changed much in 20 years, so until something better than the Kitchen Aid comes along, you might not see an update to our review in 12 months – or until the new models arrive.
If it’s a good seller with great customer service would it be wrong to send them a review and star rating and ask if they want it posted or if they just want to learn from my experience with their product. Does that go against the purpose and spirit of reviewing?
While receiving free and discounted products is fun, the most important part of the transaction is writing the honest review on Amazon. It is worth noting that all items that were provided free or at a discount need to have the following sentence included in the review per Amazon review guidelines: “This product was provided at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review.” Taking the time to provide an honest review is important because companies want to hear what you have to say about their product, but more importantly, so do your fellow shoppers.
I’ve questioned if I should email and we discuss this directly, but then I decided that if I include it here, perhaps it will help someone else in the future. I have edited out the specifics about the product and the code, etc.
Since I wrote my answer many things have changed. Over a year ago Amazon changed the reviewer rules. You no longer required to leave a review for a product you get for a reduced price. You can only leave about 4 reviews a month for things purchased at a reduced price. AMaxon rejects so many reviews especially bad reviews now. And because they can no longer require you to leave a review, the merchandise is no longer free and is not discounted as much. I was always a truthful reviewer. I told it like it was. But I stopped because it is no longer worth it.
AmzSpecial is a rare bird in that they charge a monthly subscription fee. For $0.99 a month, you can belong to their email list and save at least 85% on most deals. You will also receive deals several times a day and there is no limit to a number of deals you can apply for.
I recommend reviewing products you are interested in getting more of (and own, of course.) So, if you are looking to get more baby or audio products, then make sure you review a lot of baby and audio products. I recently reviewed a few of the popular baby toys and items around the house, and now I get hit up about baby items A LOT. The key is to review popular or mainstream items. I believe suppliers often target those first since there are usually hundreds of reviewers to choose from. In fact, some suppliers have told me that they found me via another item’s review I wrote.
What you are asking for is SEO related. You can always ask people to write a review, but I would suggest that if you are looking for an increase in traffic you buy ads with search engines, or improve your SEO and content strategy. I do not have any recommendations for SEO experts.
The immediate benefit of reviews is that they can make your future customers feel that much more confident. The more reviews you have, the more convinced a shopper will be that they’re making the right decision.

You know what, I should have come back and update my comment. I checked my profile and found that my email address was incorrect. The only offers I had previously received were from people who made comments on my reviews. At any rate, I fixed my incorrect email address and have more than a dozen in the last 2 days. Some are items I can use and would like (a travel pack, a passport wallet that holds your ID and CCs) and I passed on (an i-watch band, since I don’t own an Apple Watch).
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?
No argument there! I only found it recently, when I was looking at stereo equipment, and trying to get things that were only the specific item, so I took to clicking on all the things trying to find a filter.
That is a conundrum for sure, and I think Tristan gives a good resolution idea as usual. Considering the problems existing for reveiwers, both those our peers have brought on us, and those sellers bring on us; I’ve concluded that to ever type, like, or in any way give a review or a like for something I didn’t try isn’t acceptable.
You may also want to try using one of the many campaign companies to help you get reviews. Companies like Honest Few, I Love to Review, and Reviews for Free (to name a few) can help get your product in front of reviewers and reviews posted with in a week or so thereafter. It’s far easier than doing it yourself.
No. Writing a negative review will not impact a Voice’s reviewer ranking. A reviewer’s ranking is determined by the number of helpful votes from other customers. Customers tend to value substantive, informative, detailed and objective reviews, regardless of whether the review is positive, negative, or neutral.
If you can do what Tristan suggests, that’s a good middle ground. But if not, I think that we as reviewers, probably need to hold ourselves accountable and let the seller know and whatever they ask as resolution, we try and do. Up to and including paying for a replacement out of our own pockets, or at least offering to split the cost of another with the seller. We assume some responsibility by accepting jobs, which I’d say extends to the final disposition of our commitment. And if an error occurs which is our own fault, we owe it to the community to not falsify, and we owe the seller who put their faith in us up to and including paying out of pocket. I’d imagine if I paid out of pocket once, I’d probably never have to do it again. This may sound extreme, but I think we really need to look at this as being “professionals,” and thus…we are accountable.
The Platform offers reviewers a personalized profile page, documenting their reviewing history. If a reviewer has completed at least one review in two years, they become a ‘Recognized Reviewer’. ‘Outstanding Reviewer’ status is awarded to those who belong to the top 10th percentile in terms of the number of completed reviews for a specific journal in two years. Editors can also hand pick reviewers and award them with a ‘Certificate of Excellence’ and other perks.
