When is a review, a true review?
Did you know that there are people that get paid to give fake 5 star ratings on products they review? So once they have 5 stared it, they can have the product for free!
So what's true anymore, how do we overcome this? can we sieve out the good from the bad?
This has been discovered on platforms like, Amazon, Facebook, Twitter etc! although they will nip it in the bud, once they have been exposed.
Sometimes if it's too good to believe, then take heed! I got bitten, by believing loads of 5 star ratings over a product and got scammed badly!
Question is, where does that leave us, if we don't purchase a product, but rely on buyers reviews to give feedback on items or products relating to our niche, could this be in turn jepordising our own busness with fake reviews?
What's the answer? that we give an honest review, decent feedback and not to rate anything too high, because you want to be as genuine as possible?
At the end of the day, we all want to gain our customers 'TRUST' in us, but consider this if items become faulty or the standards are quite poor, after they have been purchased through our niche, we would loose faith and get badly rated!
So what's the answer? I'd like to know what anyones take is on this.
