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 individual. Had I seen her track record I would never have approved her to receive my product.
I do my best to only request items that I would buy, and hold items to a standard that corresponds to its price. On top of that I’m a horribly picky person and prone to buyer’s remorse. However I’m still not sure I’m giving an item a fair shake. The best I can do, really, is to give far more extensive and thorough reviews than I would for some random item I’ve bought.
Give your customers a reason to review you. It may be something as simple as writing a personalized thank you note, but that gesture will go a long way in making your customers feel warm and fuzzy. Delush Polish does such a great job at going the extra mile that customers actually share the packaging on Instagram.
Getting your customers to leave feedback on Amazon is a breeze, thanks to FeedbackFive’s automatic solicitation and timing rules. Customize your timing preferences so that customers receive emails at the time when they are most likely to open the message, click through, and leave feedback.
And incidentally, Amazon specifically tells us not to talk about shipping and purchase process in reviews in their guidelines so that isn’t a flaw of the free-item/Vine review system as is mentioned here. They want that information given in product/seller feedback. Check their review guidelines page about what reviews are rejected. No one is supposed to include that information.
These are the same as paid reviews… they payment is the product (for free or deep discount). You said it yourself in your other comment, you wouldn’t have paid full price. Even if something works well, that doesn’t mean it is worth full price; you can’t review that part of it, which is a very big part of the purchase evaluation (which reviews help with). Just because you used the product, doesn’t mean you are reviewing the same experience as a full-price purchaser.
To clarify, I meant the example of put and “out,” strictly as an example. I typed the above reply….and this one, on my phone. I intentionally misspelled proofreading for fun, but then I read it after posting it and notice more mistakes so I don’t want anyone to thank that Grammarly wouldn’t have caught those. And on my phone, editing is a pain, so I typically hit submit and then k read and edit where it’s easier to scroll. I didn’t realize this format doesn’t allow editing after submission.
This site launched at the end of July 2016. They show a handful of sample products on their home page: costumes, toys, beauty supplies, electronics, speakers, phone cases, apparel, video camera, and more. Available for reviewers in the UK.
Once you become a Top Reviewer, companies sometimes request you give them shout-outs on multiple social media accounts. The more expensive the product, the more advertising the companies will want from you in order to get items for free.
No. Members are not paid to participate in the program or to write reviews. Members will receive free product in exchange for writing reviews. There is no pressure or expectation to write positive reviews, and negative reviews do not affect membership in the program.
If anything is childish, it’s your comment. Anyone who thinks there are not many, many people who are jealous of those who get things for free has very limited knowledge of human nature. I didn’t say everyone was jealous. Once again, if you want to believe all Vine reviews are worthless, be my guest. It’s totally untrue, but imagine whatever you want.
However, Amazon hasn’t stated yet what makes a brand “Vine-worthy” or how to get invited for this program. We could expect this to change in the near future once the interest on the Vine program increases.
With hundreds of millions of items for sale, from electronics and books to pet supplies and diapers, Amazon is unquestionably the largest online retailer on the planet. In fact, Amazon, from a market cap perspective, is even larger today than Walmart.
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.
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.
Have you filled out your profile completely? Also, it really what ever demographic a company is looking for. I fit the demographic as a young mother with children who is the main shopper in the family, so I get a lot more opportunities to test products.
With banks and retailers increasingly communicating their best deals over Twitter and Facebook, it can literally pay to follow or friend them. You can also use social media to request refunds or report problems, which can translate into savings. Just be sure to keep personal information like account numbers offline or in private first time you write a review, you earn $3 for it. After that, each review earns you $1.00. Reviews are rated based on their quality. There is a quality review threshold, which if your review score reaches that point, you earn an additional $10.00 on the top of what you already earn for the your reviews. The minimum required for payout is $10.00. Carrotreviews has one set back and that is the fact that you are restricted to writing only 5 reviews a month. Although this rules changes from time to time.
Yeah, I too have noticed that lately the lists I am signed up for run out of product at a much faster rate than before. I can’t complain since I am running and promoting a site with a main purpose to open up the review-in-exchange practice to many more people.
When it comes to purchasing a product or a services, reviews play a big role in the decision making of many consumers. That’s why, many companies spend a lot of money to understand what costumers think of their products and how they would like it to be improved. It’s almost like paid surveys and mystery shopping in a sense. It works in a simple way – you get paid to share your experience with others about a product or a service that you have used in the past.
@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.
This is a relaunch of AMZ Review Trader under a new name. They have a huge marketplace of discounted products. Typically a LOT of products per email with even more on the site. Available to reviewers in USA, UK, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Spain, France, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico.

Amazon is a systemic, fraudulent, corrupt company. Bezos is aware of all of the issues that the programmers utilize to maximize profit. None are “mistakes” or errors. Doesn’t anyone realize that Amazon makes $$ from EVERY item? So sellers that “ship” from China with goods never coming, to blocking sellers accounts and holding their money, under the guise of protecting the consumer, to not really caring about fraudulent reviews (bad reviews mean the item may not sell), to the most outrageous and systemic gravy train there is = subscriptions! Going down card after card until something is approved, singing people up for “trials” knowing that they already had one, so it’s charged right away, to allowing children to sign up for subscriptions, to IMDB – the company is the devil reincarnate. When will someone sue the bastards?
