A little more time

wonderwhatif

Hey chicks,

Does anyone else wish there was a little more time given to test products (especially those that take a little longer or multiple tries to get a good idea).

Especially since they added all the 'social tasks' too, I wish there was a little more time given. Sometimes it's only a week from the time I receive a product and it can be quite a rush, I prefer to feel I've tested the product more thoroughly. 

I test a lot of products too (from other places) and I don't want to 'spam' my followers so much. :/ I love sharing what I got on Chickadvisor, but it's starting to feel more forced since they added the social tasks and less fun. Similar sites that have tasks like this also give 1 month to complete them all.

Anyone else feel this way, or am I just overwhelmed because things are tough for me right now!?

I was actually JUST thinking about this today....I live in Saskatchewan. I receive all my items at least 1 1/2 after everyone else does. Im one of the last people too receive the items. I have had no problems getting my reviews in but I know there is one due April 6th and I haven't even received it yet lol...and I probably won't for another 5-8 business days. If I need more time Ill just email them, they are good for giving an extension so if you need a little more time. :)

There is only 3 social tasks....(Facebook, Instagram, twitter) Nothing has changed with that..Its been like that for the 2 years Ive been here...I always thought you had too post of these social forums.

If you are testing a lot of products from other sites and don't like "spamming" your friends then I suggest that you don't apply for so many all at once. Or take a break from one site, or decline the acceptance for a campaign if you get picked. Your standings won't be affected at Bzzagent, Influenster or Chickadvisor if you just decide the fit was not right for you at the time.

same!

I recently got selected for a skincare line, and by the time I receive it, I will only have a few short days to try the products. Some products only require a day or two to test, but things like shampoo, moisturizer, even nail polish, I need at least 7-10 days to see how well it's going to stand up.

Agreed. At least 2 weeks to try certain products. I really can't give a true opinion after using a product for a day.

If you need more time, the chicks in charge are very accomodating with your requests especially if u just received your product. Email them your concern and they are pretty quick to answer.

I have asked for extention a couple times and I’m still receiving products for Product review club. It will not affect your chances of getting products again. Just be honest and let them know what’s going on pretty much.

But yeah, i agree some products need at least 2 weeks for us to try. I live in AB and also get my products almost last minute. It takes more than 7 business days for them to get to me.

Agreed :)

I agree with you @Wonderwhatif, I'm the type that thinks it's fun to try out products and review them! When I mean test, I truly like to take my time and try the product out as in trying it multiple times. I find that each time I try something, sometimes my opinion change the second, third time I try the same product.

I also agree, we used to have a lot more time and less forced to get the reviews in. Something has changed and I'm not sure what it on this site that is less fun for me. I guess it's the time I have on these reviews. I don't apply for many campaigns anymore because I feel very rushed every time and sometimes I know I just won't be able to make the deadline. Therefore, I feel I couldn't give as detailed quality reviews as I used to because I don't have enough time to test out the product.

I live in BC and stuff takes a little longer to get here than let's say if I live in Ontario. So by the time I receive my product, I either have 1 day to test and write my review or it's already late. :( I know chicks in charge are awesome at extending the the time, but if it's already pass deadline, even a few days extension is very rushed.

Hmmm

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, ladies!

To be clear, I do feel like some people are a little annoyed at me for raising this and maybe annoyed that I get so many products, but I am completely capable of testing them in time. The comment about spamming was because even though I love to review I don't always want to post a picture to my social media all the time. Sometimes I prefer to post it later or only on one of the platforms and not all three, does that make sense? My testing from other places does not affect my 'time' at all, though my health can make it difficult at times and I can't always predict when that will be.

I also don't want to bother the Chick ladies for an extension, I can 100% complete it in time, I just feel like it's a little rushed and for skincare products, to be totally serious we should not be testing them in such a short time, since you need longer to see the effects, so the reviews are sometimes lower rated because it can take longer to see a result.

So I was simply wondering if anyone else felt the same way. I thank the chicks who answered politely, whether you agree with me or not!

I just feel trying a product a lot is much better and the time has shortened considerably. I will continue to try Chickadvisor products, but this is a suggestion board for a reason and I wanted to raise my concerns.

I, personally, would love to see another week given on the time so I can make sure I'm giving the product enough tries to get a really great review. I already write detailed reviews that I think are very good, but I do feel I have to rush a bit to get them in!
