Distributed enterprises are finding that legacy WAN technologies are creating pain points in the digital era, prompting the need for a new WAN paradigm. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) has emerged as an architecture that improves visibility and optimization among common WAN connectivity protocols, while promising reduced costs, improved performance, and enhanced security and control over … Continue Reading…
That’s great they got back to you. And yes, it is getting more common for Sellers to offer less than 100%-off coupon codes. BUT! They should state this upfront, not let you find out in the cart. That is something I write back to them about and educate them on: tell Reviewers the cost upfront.
Totally agree!! Not sure if it’s Amazon or the seller though with this one. When they aggregate the reviews it really adds to the time it takes to get a real feel for the relationship between reaction and specific product. Love this response
My son said he loves the game, but the software is awful. It took us hours to get around the install problems and then we found out the key code had already been used! Based on the reviews and forum comments, I’m not even bothering with EA to try and resolve this issue. Our best guess is that someone has figured out their key algorithm and the codes are being activated illegally. So, even though we bought a brand new game, the verification key is useless and my son can only play a limited portion of the game.
Seems to me, that Amazon should be suing Fiverr right along with the other 4 that are paying for reviews (http://time.com/3817401/amazon-sues-fake-reviews/), as it seems to me what Fiverr is doing, is just as illegal.
You could copy/paste the product description and it would let you know the % possibility that the product was shilled/confirm that it has been shilled? Hell, what if it could strip the shill reviews and re-score the product? Maybe all this could popup in a little browser plugin?
Wiresutter is still flogging the Jlab Epic Bluetooth headphones as their best of breed for exercise – yet as an actual customer through amazon I know these headphones are utter garbage. The technique Jlab has used is to combine other headsets in with these crap headsets, thus attaining a 3.5 star rating. But I still don’t understand (1) why Wirecutter continues to promote these despite comment after comment after comment on their own website that these just don’t work, and (2) how Wirecutter failed to see through the combined ratings for this product.
Liz, they don’t pay for every product. But with some products, they will send you a survey after a few weeks of you using the product, and if you answer those surveys, you will get paid a small amount.
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.
3. Request Amazon reviews via newsletter and social media. Chances are, the folks subscribed to your newsletter and your fans on Facebook already like you, so why not ask them for reviews? a decent chance they’ve already bought a product from you, so they can provide legitimate, positive Amazon customer reviews. In our article about getting reviews on Yelp, we noted that Yelp discouraged directly soliciting reviews. Amazon, on the other hand, is much more lax.
