Do you read Amazon product reviews before purchasing?
If so, I’ve got the website for you.
Rick is joined this week, by Saoud Khalifah of Fakespot.com to help you with your holiday shopping for sports items and more.
Fakespot.com is the new fake review detection service for online shoppers. Did you know that in certain sections of Amazon, up to 70% of reviews are fake? Companies constantly plant positive reviews of their own products and sully competitors’ products with negative reviews. That’s why smart shoppers use Fakespot to protect themselves from untrustworthy reviews.
Imagine you’re buying one of this year’s top tech gifts: Apple Airpods.
The Real Deal: The authentic Apple Airpods get a great review on Amazon and they should. Fakespot gives Apple Airpod reviews an A Grade, with over 90% reliable reviews. Unfortunately, the $145 price point might be too expensive.
$15 Knock-Offs: Many Amazon shoppers will look for a cheaper option and end up getting ripped off by lesser quality products with tons of fake reviews. This knock-off wireless earbud set looks just like Apple’s, but none of the reviews are verified and received an F Grade as a result.
Great Alternative: Want the quality of Apple Airpods for less than half the price? These ZeroFire earbuds go for $45 and you can trust the 4-star review it received on Amazon. We gave the reviews an A Grade for reliability.
Online shopping platforms like Amazon are full of unreliable reviews. Companies constantly plant positive reviews of their own products and sully competitors’ products with negative reviews. I’d love to show you how Fakespot can help consumers make better purchase decisions.
Saoud and Rick dig deep into the issues face by shoppers when they are presented with online reviews.
