I’ve been contacted by sellers offering free and discounted products for review….I always put a disclaimer at the end of each review and as I’ve seen many others accepting products to review I didn’t know it wasn’t allowed…is this correct?? I actually enjoy writing reviews…
Notice how all the reviews appeared within days of one another. They also reference the same key thing: the light on the cable. In fact, two of the three use the exact phrase “how bright the lights on the cable are.” That’s a good indication that something is sketchy. And although we don’t know what product the lawsuit’s example refers to, if the product’s manufacturer was brand-new and had a few hundred of these kinds of reviews within a few days, chances are good that the company paid for them in some way.
As a supplier of an item I want reviewed, I am looking over your profile to see if you are going to be a good candidate for this product. I’m also going to read your reviews (likely skim them) to judge them on length, content, constructive criticism, and tone of voice. I want a reviewer that is not only going to give me an honest review, but one that will help other potential buyers A) make an informed buying decision based on a peer review, and more importantly B) want to buy the product.
I have been a NewEgg Eggxpert for about 3 to 4 years and have posted QUITE A FEW BAD REVIEWS about both Products AND Services over the years. I have NEVER GOTTEN “DINGED” by ANY Company and/or Service for a “BAD” Review. As a matter of fact I did a BAD Review on a Western Digital Portable HD once and I got a Reply Message (ON the NewEgg Review Site itself – surprised the heck out of me) praising my honesty and truthfulness. The person who replied even said that he wished MORE REVIEWERS were as honest in their reviews as I was. He also stated that ALL the problems/issues that I had listed with the product itself would be tested and/or fixed or modified ASAP.
Hey there! I contacted someone in charge of ProductTestingUSA and found out it is not a scam, and indeed provide product testing. You will have to do other offers on their site, however if you fit the demographic they are looking for you will be able to test a product from them.
If you like customized cases for your smartphone and other technology devices but don’t want to pay top dollar, you will like GMYLE. By signing up for their Laboratory Programme, you can sample upcoming and existing products for free. They have some neat designs that include marble, wood, bamboo, galaxy patterns. These products can definitely turn some eyes.
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.
The good news is you can get tons of reviews on Amazon for your book or product in a legitimate and honest way. The key is to proactively seek out reviewers. There are a number of people on Amazon who have bought and reviewed products or books that compete with yours. If you simply identify who these people are, and then offer to send them your product for an honest review, they are likely to do it. And since they already reviewed a competing product to yours, their review is highly credible.
Unroll.Me might be one of the easiest ways to remove temptation from your email inbox. The tool collects all of those advertising emails sent to you from retailers – and anyone else who uses a bulk emailing list – and puts them into a daily “rollup” email you can peruse whenever it’s convenient. That way, you won’t get spammed all day, and you can still catch emails that matter to you.
