What’s the deal with Amazon reviews?
Do all the recent changes regarding Amazon reviews have you confused about what you can and cannot do? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, Scott gives some helpful insights on where to get started with your review strategy. It is important to note that it is against Amazon’s “Terms of Service” to have your family members leave reviews for your product. Scott’s suggestion is to stay away from leveraging your family relationships for that reason. Also, avoid “Deal sites” that offer customers deals in exchange for reviews. Scott suggests going to influencers on blogs, Instagram, etc. and have them run giveaways of your product.

There are a few things you can do to protect yourself and communicate to the manufacturer that you are serious about protecting your intellectual property.
