People who aren't picked for product testing

on Feb 02, 2016 @ 01:20 pm

Just a thought, not sure if this affects it, but for reviews, they might measure quality as well as quantity.

A lot of people with high monthly scores work hard to get 'top chick' status, but the reviews are short. I'm not sure if this affects how it's picked, but maybe they are more interested in higher quality/length reviews.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you get picked a lot, how are your review lengths?

I get picked a reasonable amount and write mostly longer reviews.

I tend to get picked more for beauty/skincare items, so I think my age (40...shudders) plays a role in which campaigns I get chosen for.
My reviews aren't super long, but they also aren't "works great...I love it" reviews either.

Quality over quantity for me personally on Feb 02, 2016 @ 01:27 pm

If I'm not mistaken I believe I read that the better, more detailed your reviews are the higher your chances of being selected are. I also believe that demographics and survey responses are taken into consideration as well.

Thanks for the info guys, right now this is just a theory in progress unless Chickadvisor chooses to confirm or deny it! Yes, I think age and survey responses definitely contribute too.

For example, I have wavy hair. They're not going to pick me for a product for straight hair or African hair!

Not sure but did a lot of hard work to get in top 10 twice and still waiting for first products I was picked for they ran out... It gets frustrating when you see some of the same ones that get picked a couple times in a row and still nothing...

I got to chick last month, I try to do good reviews, I try and keep them lengthy and detailed, but sometimes you can only say so much about a product. Maybe I'll try harder! :)

Why are some people not picked for products ? on Feb 02, 2016 @ 02:51 pm

I'm in Ontario, Canada. I'm wondering how you can have over 29,000 points like Coultlee and not be picked to sample and review products ?
Do you think it has anything to do with where we live ?

Cindy Paige, I was thinking the same thing!

I think it has a lot to do with your profile; for instance your age, types of beauty items, food, etc that you buy. You wouldn't be accepted to review diapers if your little one is toilet trained. Don't think it has anything to do with how long our forums and reviews are.Another example may be if you are a man (they are on here) they won't be sending you sanitary pads to review. Remember there are thousands of chicks to choose from and it copuld be difficult. I'm sure there are many factors that I for one do not know about.I always enter and am sort of used to not getting picked. Like, take toys I have a grandkid living with me (2 at one time) and have never been selected for anything for kids. It's still fun though

I agree with @grammasdolly
