How points work on ChickAdvisor and a note about #hashtags

Monday March 2, 2015 by Ali

Chicks, we have some exciting news for you!  First, there are less than 3 weeks left until Spring and winter is dead to you. Congratulations on getting through it!

Points = gift cards
The second great piece of news is that each month, points are going to give you a shot at earning an e-gift card!  Every month we will tally up who has earned the most points within that month*.  

Top points earners can be identified at the end of each month on the Monthly Top Chicks section on our homepage. This section resets automatically each month so it's fair game for everyone, regardless of how many points you have now. E-Cards will be sent out within the first week of each month to the previous month's top earners.   

So how do you earn points?

Using our hashtags = more shots at free products
This spring you will notice an abundance of new Product Review Club offers on ChickAdvisor.  Thousands of you will get to test and spread the word about the best new products 2015 has to offer.  Using the branded hashtags we provide is going to become more important than ever for those of you who participate in these programs.  Brands love seeing your tweets, blog posts and cute pics on Instagram.  Instagram in particular is a staff favourite. #apictureisworthathousandwords.

Thank you for your continued support and amazing reviews.  You really make ChickAdvisor a special place and I personally love you.



Q: Do my all-time points count toward the monthly contest?
A: Only the points you earn in that calendar month count for the purpose of this contest. Your permanent points total will never be lost, but every month your monthly counter resets.  

Q: What if someone adds dummy reviews or otherwise tries to scam the system?
A: Our site admins comb the new reviews every day and remove any nonsensical reviews we find. We do not tolerate spam on our site and are vigilant to catch anyone trying to "game" our system. Any member who purposely uses our site under false pretenses will have their account deleted and be blacklisted from all of our programs (including the Product Review Club). All potential monthly winners' profiles are examined before we award the monthly prizes to ensure the member's activity is legitimate.

Q: Can we review anything we want?
A: For the most part yes, but please be reasonable! ChickAdvisor is your space to post and read helpful reviews for products and services of general interest. ChickAdvisor reserves the right to remove any reviews for any reason and without notice.

Q: Do negative reviews count for participation in this monthly contest?
A: Yes, we allow negative reviews as long as they do not violate our policy on spam, libel, abusive behaviour, etc. Ranting is discouraged and may be subject to deletion. Keep your negative reviews helpful. Sometimes a product you disliked is better suited for a person with different needs, hair type, etc!

Q: How do we report a review or a member we suspect of scamming your system?
A: We will be introducing a feature for flagging inappropriate reviews soon. If you have any concerns, please email us: info (at) chickadvisor (dot) com.

*Q: How are the Top 10 monthly winners chosen?
A: While the Top 10 Chicks are featured on the ChickAdvisor homepage throughout the month, this does not guarantee that these members will win a gift card. The 10 winners will be chosen based on the quality of their reviews not merely quantity. The awarding of gift cards is at the discretion of the ChickAdvisor Team.

Donnez moi des conseils à propos des points?
Lorsque je fais des revues je m'applique et fait les corrections nécessaires.
Hier soir par exemple j'y ai passé près de 2 heures incluant facebook et Twitter.
Il est vrai que j'ai essayé de mettre une photo sur Instragram et n'ai pas réussi!

J'ai appris aujourd'hui qu'il y a encore des courriels d'envoi à propos des nouveaux produits soumis. Au ChickAdvisor Club Reviews?
C'est reparti pour l'exitation! D'avoir des nouveaux produits et en faire les revues, cela me donne de l'adrénaline!

Bonne chance à toutes!
J'espère que ça fait un peu partie de la chance?

Demain est la dernière journée pour poster sur le banc d'essais du ClubAdviser des produits Becel. J'ai du poster mon commentaire sur Facebook puisque j'avais fait au début de l'annonce du concour et ensuite je n'y avait plus accès pour modifier. Étant donner la longue fin de semaine les employer n'ont pu m'aider a y parvenir. J'espère que tout ira bien malgré tout!

Je me prépare aujourd'hui pour écrire ma première revue du Club des bancs d'essais pour les produits Becel. Ma nervosité est grande puisque je ne veux pas faire d'erreur! Je ne connais pas encore Instragram, ce qui me retardera un peu pour afficher mes commentaires !!!
