After you get the design done, you need to print it out and add it to your packaging. Most manufacturers that make their own packaging can do this for you. If you, on the other hand, have a separate packaging manufacturer, they will most certainly be able to do it for you.
No. All Vine products are submitted by vendors to Amazon, and distributed by Amazon to the Vine Voices. Vendors have no contact with the Vine Voices, and have no influence over which Vine Voices will review their products.
I just started doing some Amazon product reviewing. So, thank you for all of this great information about being an Amazon Reviewer. The comments have been a great source of additional information. I even sent a company to this blog address to read this so they could have a better understanding from the Amazon seller side. Now I need to go research ILoveToReview.com
So yes, I’m sure some reviewers – like you – may very well be able to get to the heart of a product despite getting it for free or for very little-but I would imagine that many don’t take it that seriously or even realize how the process affects their reviews. Or there are others that will not bite the hand that feeds them.
They have a huge marketplace with a broad range of products from apparel, home decor, headphones, accessories for electronics, kitchen gear, knives, workout supplements and much more! Available for product testers in in the UK, USA, Ireland, France and Canada.
First and foremost, we are a review site – not a news site. We won’t have updates and announcements of new product launches or news about upcoming changes to the latest and greatest handheld gadget before its released. You can visit one of the other Purch brands for that.
It’s worth noting that NetGalley provides free ebooks to reviewers, and a lot of Amazon reviewers use that, as do I. I read a lot, and I like to review books, and It’s great to get some books I wouldn’t have bought from NetGalley.
You can also want to try the website BzzAgent as well as looking out for “supermarket home panels” or signing up to fashion magazine newsletters but these product tests are very rare and hard to get on to.
I’ve been doing these types of sites for a few months and have had great results with over 200 items that I’ve enjoyed reviewing on Amazon, and posting other comments or blogs posts about me experiences with these items. This is a great list with several wonderful websites that gather these sellers and items in focus locations to help find many reviewers. I almost want to not share this with everybody except close friends as I feel I’m loosing chances as more people join and apply for these freebies and deals.
You’re suggesting that the big companies such as Lego, Otterbox, Disney and others have a monopoly. You’re not giving the little guy a chance… These websites are helping small businesses. Get yourself together and think outside of the box.
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.
I’ve been getting a lot of beauty products to test from Mindfield Online lately and they pay me about $30 or more. Also they offer a lot of baby products testing. Do you have a Sam’s Club membership? If so, they currently have a high paying project for Sam’s Club Members in the works right now to join. 💰 Pays by Cash, PayPal, and Amazon Gift Cards
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.
Scott, I am not sure about Product Testing USA. To me it doesn’t look like a real product testing site. I get the feeling it is more of a “feel out a survey for us and you may be chosen to test a product” kind of site. So, if you are looking for real product testing, stick with the sites mentioned in this post, or other legit companies. Hope that helps.
Hi Lou:) Congratulations and continued $ucce$$ with your blog site. It is absolutely awesome!:) Ive been doing product reviews online at Amazon and a few at my wordpress site (email@example.com) with the hope of finding a way to earn while I write. I have already reviewed the good paying product companies and see that you have endorsed them. Good minds think alike:)) I am still deciding which one works for me and hope to enjoy what I love doing most, that is, besides dancing (Astaire) which also takes top priority, of course:)) That said, again many thanks and hope to share some good news soon. Be well and God bless….lilvix811 (Lori B)
The best way to frame the review is by highlighting the value your product adds to your customer’s life. Once you frame the review this way, you can ask them to share their experience with the rest of the world.
Paid or compensated reviewers are BS. They should ban this. It takes me 5 times longer to research products and more often than not I find myself unhappy with things I bought with 4-5 star reviews. These people need to get a real talent and get off their butts.
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
Product reviews drive buyer trust and confidence by providing relevant information they need. Supplying this information at the point of purchase means shoppers are more likely to convert to buyers when viewing your item. Research shows they keep buyers on the site, resulting in an average 18% uplift in sales.*
On the other hand, my boss has a problem with fake BAD reviews. Since she’s a non-fiction “exposé” author, you can only imagine the feathers she’s ruffled. Those fake bad reviews are easy spot [Amazon once had to scrub 46 obviously fake bad reviews from the book listing– which prompted a change to their entire review policy], if you bother to click on the reviewer handles, but how many potential buyers actually take the time to do that?
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.
So, they make it appear that if I refer a seller that signs up with them, then I will will receive all of the sellers (who will likely be highly incentivized with highly discounted first month in fees) “platform” (fees seller pays for privilege of listing their free/discounted products) during their first month. And if that isn’t enough to get me racing to email box to frantically contact my sellers, then perhaps mention of, “And” I will also get more product to review, will motivate me. Of course any increase in products to review (free or discounted) would be a direct result of sellers (that I refer ) signing up and listing their products.
The company’s popular stand mixer and a handful of other products will come in four new shades of salmon, blue, pink and merlot. The company also showed off several new small appliances at the International Home and Housewares Show this weekend in Chicago.
I realize you may not know the rule, so hopefully you’ll see that I’m providing you a valuable piece of information so you may adjust accordingly. As of now, I will not report this to Amazon as long you reply to confirm that you understand, so please reply and let me know that you understand why I can’t do what you’re asking until I have used your product.
