My main concern with starting on Amazon is getting those initial reviews. I realize how important they are in getting sales traction on the website. I have no problem giving away my product for free for an honest review, my main concern though is that Amazon will start thinking all these reviews are fake and take them down...or even worse remove me as a seller.
Does anyone else have any experience with selling physical products on Amazon and getting reviews? I have watched other companies in the segment I am targeting launch products and get 1 - 5 verified reviews per week with limited sales volume. The only way I am thinking they are doing this is via pay-per-review.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
