More Evidence On the Unreliability of Amazon Reviews

Maybe if the whole writing a book thing doesn’t pan out, professional writers can supplement by writing amazon reviews. “Ken” wants 5 reviewers to write a 1-3 paragraph review with the a 5 star rating. The reviews have to be aproved by the company, but once they are approved, you get to post them at Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.com. The reviewers get paid $5-$10 per review.

Doesn’t Ken realize that Amazon reviewers get paid way more than that? Doesn’t he know about Donald Mitchell who has earned over $20,000.00 for his reviews. Get with the program, Ken.

  1. I wonder who the people requesting the reviews are? Changeling Press maybe?

    Just kidding of course. I haven’t come across any of their books at Amazon for anybody to review in the first place. (g)

    (Yes, I can hold a grudge with the best of ’em.)

  2. Aside from Vine (which provides free products) I don’t know of any Amazon program that pays you for writing reviews and I have reviewed with them since 1999.
