I have the same question that others here do. I looked at the page of Amazon reviewers, and while they all sound like wonderful people, there is no contact information. It sounds like ” Don’t call us, we’ll call you.”
Hi Megan. Truly fantastic advice. In fact could be a great book! 🙂 I have already moved to phase 2 of taking action after reading this pleasurable piece of advice. Many thanks and may you have a great weekend. Happy Halloween! Greg
Unfortunately, a very small minority of sellers and manufacturers sometimes tries to gain unfair competitive advantages for their products on Amazon.com. One such method is creating false, misleading, and inauthentic customer reviews. While small in number, these reviews can significantly undermine the trust that consumers and the vast majority of sellers and manufacturers place in Amazon, which in turn tarnishes Amazon’s brand. Amazon strictly prohibits any attempt to manipulate customer reviews and expressly prohibits compensated reviews. Nonetheless, an unhealthy ecosystem has developed outside of Amazon to supply reviews in exchange for payment. 4.
Good try, but on their end, the page now opens up by will not scroll down. Perhaps this is just a momentary lapse. At any rate, that “21%” is wildly way too low. I figure about 45-50% total for unreliable anonymous reviews, which, of course, Amazon for one could not care less about (when the company stock price is soaring, the company’s attitude, regardless of which one, is “Up Yours!”)
We currently fully support the US and UK marketplaces with promotions and email campaigns. Jump Send email campaigns are also available for Canada, Mexico, France, Spain and Italy. More marketplaces are coming soon, we will notify all members when they are available.

We lay-folk have long known that scientists use common objects for strange reasons – see NASA researchers sending rubber ducks into a glacier to track ocean currents, or environmental scientists floating tampons down streams to find pollution.

What aspects of the Rxvoit headphones’ reviews felt funny to us? Well, first of all, we noticed that a lot of the positive reviews happened within a few days of each other. That indicates to us that people made a push for reviews to happen on a timeline.
Vogue never sent me anything over the year I was with them..BUT..they kept sending surveys. I finally wrote them and told them they were just using my information for free and I was tired of it. So..don’t join unless you just want to fill out surveys and get NOTHING in return.
6. Repeat forever. This process takes two elements that scares many people away: time and money. You need to make an effort (time) and you need to send a product to a reviewer (money). Ironically, this is your biggest advantage, since your competitor is unlikely to do this, even though it’s as easy as pie! They will stay stuck with their 14 reviews, while you pile up 463 and more. If you stick with this, you will win!
TestZon was only launched in 2016 and already shows multiple signs of being a great place to shop for nearly free. If it isn’t already, TestZon needs to be on your short list. They have products for almost every category imaginable and can test many for free including video game headsets, swim goggles, and clothing. If something isn’t free, you can find many other items for sale for only a few pennies.
Keep an eye out on us please. We’re soon to launch our beta platform, and would appreciate a good word to help us buildup a reviewer base. Our Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/buviewing?ref=hl and we know that there are many folks who want to do reviews, get free stuff, and earn a bit too. Thanks, and feel free to IM in FB.
In a study of U.S. Department of Agriculture data, CR found pesticide levels in some fruits and vegetables were too high. Shortly after, one of the pesticides was banned for use on food crops commonly consumed by children.
As mentioned in that post you are referring to, there are also a few other shoe companies, like Nike, that have product testing that US residents can participate in. Have you tried signing up for any of those?
Hello, this is a very interesting article! Thank you for the information. I am not a seller but am a reviewer. I get contacted by companies to purchase their product at 99% off or at an even higher discount in exchange for an honest review of their product. I feel this is a great way for people like me to point out the best parts of the product (even the parts that aren’t so great) and help the buyer make the right decision when purchasing the product through reviews. Thank you for the information again and i just wish there were a website reviewers could go to to contact sellers who need people to Leave an honest review of their products.. Any recommendations??
Trust Review Network has some enticing offers on their homepage. You can buy valuable items like unlocked smartphones, laptops, and mini espresso machines for pennies on the dollar. In regards to the smartphones, the normal retail price is $179.99 and they can be purchased for $0.99.
The comments are interesting but most are incorrect if they believe that all discounted reviews are shill. I just received a request from an Amazon partner to do discounted item (for my honest revie). I though,t well if they think they are buying stars from me they are very wrong. I have no incentive to give bad or good reviews artificially. I don’t get anything extra. So people that paint a negative brush are quite wrong. It matters more to me to be honest because I buy items there at full price and don’t want to be fooled. Think about this too. Send it back. It’s easy as that. It’s a pain, but the situation isn’t all fake.. Common sense tells you that Amazon would nosedive.if this was the case.
Hi there. I love your website, thanks! Anyway just wanted to let you know that some of your links aren’t working properly. For instance when I click on #3 – Pinecone Research, I’m directed to a site called, ‘Product Report Card.com’. That’s not the first time that’s happened to me while using the links you provide on your site. I hope this information is helpful to you!
@lee_fyock:disqus Products have trouble standing on their own because we’ve all trained ourselves to be biased against anything “new”, and need the consensus of many others to overcome that. While that’s generally great, it does mean new products and brands have a hard time getting the initial momentum they need to get the more organic word-of-mouth going, even if they are delivering something of real quality.
Second, within those reviews, we saw a lot of the same wording, and even similarly staged user photos. It was as though someone said, “Hey, take a picture of a close-up of your hands holding the headphones over a countertop.” While we know that people do post pictures to accompany their reviews, it seemed too coincidental that they were all staged in the same way, all over a span of a few days.
Hi Kristin, I replied just above your comment about being careful posting your personal Amazon profile publicly. I understand why you want to do it, I would too if someone had not told me all of the horror stories about things people do with other people’s profiles. Another big problem right now is people stealing other’s reviews, copying and pasting them word for word. Good luck and stay safe, LW
Pitching a seller means that you contact the seller directing instead of going through a review site. You will need to have a good Amazon Rank (under #200,000) so if you’re just starting out, you may want to get a few reviews under your belt before pitching. When you’re ready, here’s what you need to do:
I casually used this product to try to disperse a small band of non-violent campers who had locked their arms together. Although initially it seemed to be effective, it took two applications! The worst part is that the next day they multiplied exponentially! Now what?
I think the lawsuit is a temporary solution, since many will now just go underground and use services that Amazon can’t see publicly like they do with Fiverr. The real problem is that they rank Reviewers at all. There’s no real good reason to do this since the act of reviewing should not be a game. This may have been great in the beginning when Amazon wanted to reward those that reviewed. But now that they (eventually) get reviews for virtually all products it’s simply causing some Reviewers to treat it as a game instead of a way to help others get better, honest insights to products.
If you are selling a book, then perhaps even insert a link (or short description) on How To write a (book)review. If you have just one or two reviews, then insert the topic as a quote and just ask your customers if they agree.
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?
Our Editorial Team picks apart the data they gather to identify products and services of note. Their selections are based on a number of factors, including cost, availability, popularity, etc. Sometimes they’ll suggest a few dozen products for review; sometimes more.
This banana slicer is actually one of the more widely known products brimming with over the top and sarcastic reviews. While its very existence is certainly bound to raise a few eyebrows, 5,296 customers gave this an average rating of 4.5 stars. Still, it’s not as if the banana slicer is not without its fair share of controversy.
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.

Most Amazon shoppers don’t leave feedback, but you don’t have to be part of the group of sellers with a blank wall. FeedbackExpress will show you the main reasons why buyers aren’t leaving reviews, and
In the same boat as you Robert. But I applaud you for being an honest reviewer (like me!) Unfortunately I’ve been duped quite a few times by the high rankings of subpar products before realizing how to analyze really what the product is and not what a group of people who got it for free think.
