Should You Have Friends and Family leave reviews?

As you launch your product and are eager to drive sales and get your brand off the ground, you might be wondering if you should call on friends and family members to review your product. Is that still a good idea? How do you send them the product if you are giving it away to them? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, you’ll hear from Scott as he gives an update on this topic. Scott encourages sellers to stay away from using this strategy to get reviews started for their product.
