The Consumer Voice – What’s in it For You?
The Consumer Voice has changed we’re now a fully interactive site that allows customer comments and chats between registered retailers and our reviewers.
The reviewed and approved badge is seen in the eCommerce world as being as valuable as the Good Housekeeping Approved badge!
We have our gift guides, our product reviews and our free consumer service that has seen us nominated for many awards as the best contribution to consumer communities. We also bring you the latest consumer and retailer news along with research, statistics and opinions and views.
Our forums are completely interactive whereas as our giveaways are generous. Our unique approach to connecting the consumer and the retailer has seen us rise in popularity incredibly while bringing those brands involved incredible insights and marketing opportunities that please their target market.
The gift guides are trusted as we are a non-profit company. We earn nothing from advertising, sponsorship or promotions as we promise to remain unbiased at all times. Unlike other review sites, this unbiased approach means we bring the best reviews and remove the risk for those shopping online.
We thoroughly test every product we review in real everyday settings. This means that as a non-profit company we can’t return any goods as we can’t afford the expense of replacement should the product become damaged in our care.
Our brands understand that the cost of a product costs considerably less than the eminence of appearing on a trusted site, along with the media and marketing opportunities and customer generations through twitter and Facebook, Pinterest and LinkedIn.
We do have to receive products and use them before we can give a recommendation, this is part of our ethos and the reason we can confidently claim we offer to “remove the risk of shopping online”.
The cost of advertising with us through product reviews is nil. The companies that have more than one product receive their own designated manufacturer’s page. We make no profit and often giveaway products in our big giveaways.
You don’t have to be a member or register to benefit from any of the above, all you have to do is get in touch and send us the products you would like the most exposure for.
