Amazon Reviewer Goals (AMZReviewTrader Strategy)
The Goal: Is NOT to get more free ‘crap’ — The goal is to get free useful products that enhance my lifestyle.
The Goal: Is to receive products that enhance your life, and drive value to your life.
Some people try to maximize the amount of free stuff they receive from AMZReviewTrader and I totally understand the desire to maximize the amount of free stuff that you get (“Hey, it is FUN to get packages in the mail”). But, getting more free things that clutter your house and serve no purpose is NOT the goal — the goal is to get increasingly better things directly from manufacturers (example: Amazon Vine Voice Program).
To get products you actually want from manufacturers you need to make yourself available to be contacted directly by their marketing departments. I have worked with 5+ manufacturers and Amazon Sellers that have sent me awesome products Aukey and BicycleStore being 2 of the stores.
How do I make myself available for these contacts?
- Funnel people to the intake channel you want them to engage you through, whether that be a separate email address that you use for your reviewing activities or your personal email address.
- Personally, all of my social media funnels back to my about.me page, where a marketer can then email me. Though, the majority of my contacts come from marketers stumbling across a review I wrote on amazon, and then finding my amazon profile page.
How do I control or direct marketers to what products I want?
- Review products on Amazon that I am actually interested in that I received via AMZReviewTrader.
- Review products on Amazon that I actually buy (every time).
- I list product categories that interest me, in my amazon profile.
- I list activities that interest me, in my amazon profile.
Are there other channels to get free stuff outside of AMZReviewTrader?
- Create a YouTube channel that surrounds an activity that interests you, upload regularly and frequently; focus on making those videos discoverable via YouTube’s tagging interface and via descriptive titles and detailed video descriptions.Be active in Instagram hashtag communities.
- Be genuinely active in Forums that interest you.
- Be a genuine social influencer in whatever online community that interests you.
- Make yourself available to be contacted.
