Hi,I agree with you,because I am a seller on amazon,I do not want to spent more money to get review like you say,my items are all in high quality,but,no review no orders,especially good review.I hope all reviewers review honestly,but…………..
“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 “And we limit the total number of Vine reviews that we display for each product,” he adds.
Now since they are already invested in you to a degree, they are also the best people to ask for a genuine review, the ones who buy your book on Amazon and review it. How do you get them to do this? Compose a strong email to them appealing to their passion for and knowledge of your genre, as well as their previous interest in your work. For some, that will be enough to pique their interest. For others, you may want to offer to supply them with the book for free. This way you are getting genuine reviews since the books were purchased through the site, but you haven’t required them to buy your book to do so.
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.
If they see you’re unlikely to leave reviews, they most likely won’t give it to you. For this reason we recommend leaving a few reviews on products you’ve previously purchased before trying AMZ Review Trader.
FeedbackFive is an automation tool with a purpose – to solicit feedback. This doesn’t mean, however, that the interaction can’t feel warm and personal while accomplishing that goal. In fact, you’re more likely to actually get a response if you do more than send a standard, plain-vanilla message.
Awesome. Thank you so much for that link. I’ve been searching everywhere trying to get a clear answer for who can leave a review. We just started selling our own products on Amazon and have our own site and are on other platforms, and wanted to use that customer base to leave reviews on Amazon to be found there. It’s clearly spelled out at that link that that is okay and won’t be punished. Thanks again!
I said no such thing about Vine reviewers being “free from biases”. I am saying Vine reviewers are like non-Vine reviewers at Amazon–some reviews are good, some are bad, some are honest, some are dishonest. Those who read reviews need to do so in a critical manner. Not everyone is jealous of those who get things for free, but it’s a pretty common feeling among humans, yes. Some of those who are jealous will then write negative things out of jealousy, but my personal belief is most people are not vindictive. And if you would go back and read my first post, you will see I was not questioning or condemning the entire article, only the totally untrue statement that few Vine reviews were “negative or even critical”. Okay?
In general, shoppers have begun to distrust these reviews because they believe them to be biased. That’s not just a “feeling,” as it turns out – a recent study of over 7 million reviews indicated that the average rating for products with incentivized reviews was higher than non-incentivized ones. (That is, a 4.74 average rating versus a 4.36 average rating, out of 5 stars).
I think Amazon should take this review devaluing more seriously! And maybe a few rounds of region-based boycott’s would help them take notice? Instead they dink around w/ taking or giving Prime Benefits or spin off more fee based memberships with new names! Aye! BTW, has anyone made a Hitler reaction video yet?
You have a few ways to suss out what may be a fake review. The easiest way is to use Fakespot. This site allows you to paste the link to any Amazon product and receive a score regarding the likelihood of fake reviews.
That’s just bullshit because amazon allows reviews without purchasing and its different from the rest because amazon has a stake in kindle and they profit more no matter what on digital content. That would be illegally allowing that market to be inuenced only based on there own guaranteed financial gains. On top of membership access fees for kindle

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).
amanda I don’t really want money but would like to get some gifts back I try. can u give me some sites that are ok to work with? I have never done this I am 77 and would like to try without getting scammed can u email me at (removed by editor).
4. Fish around for emails. Many popular reviewers will have their email addresses on their profile page. If you don’t see an email address, you’ll have to try reaching out via social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc.)
I have only started reviewing product over the past 6 mths. About 70% of the product promo codes I enter fail. It happens when the sellers directly email me a code & also when I attempt to redeem an item from AMZThe sellers tell me that they haven’t come across this issue with other reviewers. They send me another promo code and some times it works, and other times it doesn’t. One vendor sent me 4 codes before I was finally able to successfully redeem it. This happens even if I attempt to redeem the code same day as received. And they are products I have never purchased either myself or through a different promo code.
Once you have enough of those reviews, you can contact the sellers directly and offer them a review in exchange for a free product. And since you already have a good history and track record of being a top reviewer, seller will gladly give you their product for free.
If you see a fu***** building with a sign says Amazon do not even bother buy there s***** slop they are the most sorry jerks ull never want to know there products stink there atmosphere stinks with my hearts content no one would ever be so unwilling to EVER help their company grow I’m rating them 1 star and 0 if I could…DIE AMAZON!!!! Burn in hell
This has been really helpful to me. I review on Amazon too but not a Vine member. I have always wondered about some of the things that you have shared here. Thanks. I sure hope I get to be a Vine member eventually.
I will always write honest reviews and if that means I one day find that I am unable to get products, because I’ve rated too many negatively, then that’s what will happen and I’ll move on. Until then, if I can get a discount solely for writing an honest review, I will do so. I feel absolutely no sense of duty to use kid gloves on any product I get a discount on, because the rules are very clear; the reviews I am writing are to be honest. That is the only thing I owe the company, is an *honest* review.
