So I’ve read that it’s against amazons review policy to use friends and family. How is this any different than doing a product giveaway, a seller is still solicitation reviews correct? Do people still use friends and family? Can amazon track this?
Amazon can definitely track it….I had my girlfriend order a product to write a review…Amazon emails her and says she can’t post it because she has affiliation with me. Keep in mind I have never bought her anything from Amazon or vice versa. Weird.
I’ve been recommending that all sellers, especially new sellers, read Cynthia Stine’s book, which contains great insights into Amazon’s hidden workings and how sellers are rated. I wish I had read it before we started selling our first product.
I see review sites beginning to do more harm than good.
Who would want to buy a product, loaded with reviews that state “I received this product for a discount in exchange for an honest review”. Takes away credibility of what you’re selling in my opinion
