Trusted Reviewer Open Opportunity Program (SR TROOPs)

April 6, 2015 // In SR Help // By

The TROOPs (Trusted Reviewer Open Opportunity Program) facilitates the exchange of free products for reviews.


Reviewers (also known as TROOPers) receive full products free of charge, with the only requirement being that they must post a quality, in-depth and critical review of that product when they are finished. This can take a month or more since they only receive full containers, not just sample packs.


We NEVER remove TROOPers from the program because they post a negative review.  Our TROOPers post honest reviews on products regardless of whether or not they received them for free.  The only time we remove TROOPers from our program is if they don’t review products they receive.


In fact, reviews of products received through the TROOPs are more critical on average than other reviews:


Average Rating for NON-TROOP Reviews:

Overall=7.90/10, Effectiveness=8.08/10, Value=7.62/10


Average Rating for TROOP Reviews:

Overall=7.42/10, Effectiveness=7.67/10, Value=6.93/10


We’ve designed the TROOPs to keep brand influence out of the reviews.  Brands may not “preselect” which TROOPers receive their products.  Brands don’t get to preview, edit or have any say whatsoever on the final review.  We’ll never remove a negative review just because the brand complains.


Many brands refuse to send products out because they don’t want an honest and fair evaluation.  They’d rather use their preselected “Test Team” to flood other review platforms with low-quality 5-star reviews.  That’s why will purchase and send products out when brands refuse to.  


Who are the TROOPers?


TROOPers are regular supplement consumers like you or me.  They have a proven track record on for posting detailed, in-depth and critical reviews on supplements and have participated enough on our site to earn a spot in the TROOPs.


If you’re interested in joining the TROOPs, here’s how to get started.

    Are reviewing products the fastest way to get rep points vs. Forums? Really hungry for Troop status

    @Lorenzitto - This is open to anyone worldwide, however when a company rep opens an opportunity, they will select which countries they are willing to ship to, and so far, the vast majority have been to the US only.

    @Lorenzitto - Technically you can, but it's rare that we see items offered to countries outside of the US. Hopefully as we grow and expand, we'll see some more international products available.
