The Trusted Reviewer Open Opportunity Program (or TROOP for short) connects qualified reviewers with brands who are seeking honest reviews.
How does it work?
A rep creates a review opportunity to send out full containers of their product to qualified members of the SR community. The opportunity is posted on the homepage for a week. During that week, qualified reviewers can claim these free products. The rep then ships each of the qualified reviewers a full container of that product. The reviewer consumes the entire container and posts a thorough, detailed review on our site.
Brands: Get your products featured on our site by opening an opportunity: How to get your products reviewed
Reviewers: Get free products in exchange for writing detailed, critical reviews. How to become a TROOPer
Which members are eligible TROOPers?
Any member with 100% Member Trust and at least 2 approved reviews will automatically be part of the SR TROOPs. Achieving 100% Member Trust on SR is no easy task. You must prove your dedication and knowledge to the SR community by posting honest, unbiased and critical reviews that are well received.
This provides a massive incentive for members to post quality, in-depth and thorough reviews so that they can start receiving these freebies. At the same time, it weeds out anyone who is not serious about finishing products and completing their review obligations, so the reps don’t have to spend any time vetting reviewers before sending off their products.
How is the program facilitated by SR?
We have added several features and safeguards that keep the entire program running smoothly and efficiently.
Custom dashboard for Reps and TROOPers to track and update the status of their reviews. Updates when the product is claimed, shipped, received, started, completed and finally reviewed.
Reps can send a “reminder” if a reviewer has an overdue update.
TROOPers are limited to a maximum of 6 pending products at anytime. Once they claim 6 products, they will have to finish and review some in order to be able to claim more.
TROOPers are also limited to a maximum of 2 pending products per category. One reviewer claiming 6 pre-workouts would be a disaster, so we don’t let it happen.
TROOPers aren’t able to claim products that they have already reviewed.
How do I get started?
Reps can request reviews through the Rep CP under the Get Reviews tab.
Existing TROOPs can visit their TROOP CP here.
Reviewers who already have 100% trust and 2 approved reviews are automatically part of the TROOPs and the TROOP product offers will start appearing at the top of your homepage. If you aren’t a TROOPer yet, start posting quality, in-depth and thorough reviews and you’ll start working your way to becoming a TROOPer in no time!
