Nothing irritates me more as an Amazon Seller when a review request comes through to me… Let me say that again.. Nothing irritates me more! So Excited that Amazon has finally cracked down on the product review requests.
But, as an Amazon FBA Seller, I know how important reviews are to my selling metrics. So when Karon Thackston published her latest post talking about legal and ethical ways to generate reviews without annoying Amazon’s customers, I was stoked and wanted to help get the word out.
Because let me tell you IDK what I will do if one more blogger emails me through Amazon requesting one of my wholesale products for FREE in exchange for a review and sharing it with her audience of such and such number. Causing me to have to respond to the email within 24 hours so it does not mess with my Amazon selling metrics. I do know what I will do, I will report them as suspicious to Amazon!
End of rant, here is a snippet from Karon Thackston’s blog on this matter:
