How to obtain products for review?

11 replies
Hi,
i am making a new site with a product review section. I am talking about 1 to 400$ per given product.
What i am asking is not how to convince them, but how to make them trust you
without blocking any money? Today i made first contact and what i did was at the end of the letter offer them links to :
-the actual site
-my ebay
-my personal webs
-offered them if needed to send them a proof of identity and residence.
-my full address and phone

Any experienced reviewers here to give me some idea? Is there a general contract for this? I am talking international here, if it was in the country i live i would simply make an effort and visit them.

    Generally, people that seek to review just want a free product. Unless of course it was a magazine or something similar that you know was going to post a major article about your product in their publication. Most times, they would just do it without asking. Anyways, that's the first part. Many vendors are aware that people are just trying to get something for free, and in IM, if the creator believes in their product as much as they say, they probably would just let the paid customers do the talking.

    You should find people looking for people to review their WSO's all over the WF, just not sure what section it was moved to.

    One of my ideas is to make a name for my web, i want never to make a biased review. Nor i had any idea of keeping the products, which is not a bad idea after all. I have a sub section where reviews will be published by users.
    Luckily i found a good niche where are no user reviews on the web or are stupid to the point it seems are written by themselves.

    Normally they only give out products to very famous/popular site owners who have a huge amount of traffic. Some of the products are actually only loaned to the site owners and need to be returned after the review.

    Yes, i want loans only and for starters i targeted brands who didn't have made any actual CEO, like reviews, you tube videos, etc.
    In a year they will beg me, but now i beg them
    I even think of some calculated buying and reselling later but will try to avoid it.


    What i need is an bulletproof scheme not to convince them, but to realize the deal.
    If they don't buy what i say, i can be the bad boy too. But this is a worse case scenario. Something like I buy, I don't like and return during the established period. I hope will not come to this.

    I hope when i unlock the first doors, the others would be easier.

    They may not look at it that way, though? They can't (often?) re-sell what you send back, perhaps?

    This is what I do, if it helps (I realise you're not talking about ClickBank products, but still - some of the suggestions might be useful?) ...

      In that case, I think, you might need to start with the physical products you already own. If you can show some high traffic stats about your website to vendors, they may be willing to send you their products for the review. May be you just need to start with local market first, once you show some value to vendors they might get interested.

    You are right, i will start like this, if there is not any response to my pleads. Still waiting for the result from my first try. Normally when trying to buy something from them they responded me in 5 min. Now its like 40h silence. It should be because they are thinking I hope. But i am patient. Will wait.
