LiftMode (Phenibut) - Offering to Pay Customers for Reviews « : December 10, 2013, 09:03:58 AM »
Noticed a flood of one-hitter-quitter 10/10 reviews on this otherwise unheard of product: http://supplementreviews.com/liftmode/phenibut

Couldn't find a link between the profiles, but we all knew something was going on.  Did some digging and found the LiftMode facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/liftmode

They have been running an offer to give an incentive for people to write reviews.  When you go to post a review, you have to click "no, I wasn't offered an incentive to post this review".  Our rules CLEARLY state:

Quote
You can't post a review if you were offered an incentive. Maybe a company offered you a free t-shirt or coupon if you post a review here? If you were told to post a review here, please let us know!

We went ahead and deleted 5 one-hitter-quitter perfect 10/10 reviews for this product.  We have also banned all 5 members for failing to disclose that they were offered an incentive for posting a review.

Here is a collection of posts from the LiftMode Facebook page:

Hey guys, so we've introduced a new deal that will run until further notice: as of now, anyone can obtain a $20 discount code in exchange for posting an honest, detailed, unbiased product review of a LiftMode product, on a forum or social media site OUTSIDE of Amazon. Here are the details, please read them as they are important in claiming your discount:

Step 1) Buy a LiftMode product. We (or Amazon) will prepare and ship your LiftMode order.
Step 2) When your order arrives, as you have the opportunity, carefully and thoughtfully try the product you requested a number of times, until you form a solid opinion about it.
Step 3) Once you have experience with the product and are ready to review it honestly, go to any online forum, community, or social media site which you participate in, which cares about supplements and/or nootropics, and in a way which is relevant to the context of the discussion, and is respectful of the community (not spammy), write a detailed and unbiased review for the product you received from LiftMode. Imagine that your audience will be the next 100 people who are considering buying the LiftMode product, and try to be as helpful and straightforward to them as possible about whether or not to buy the product, and what to expect when trying it.
Step 4) Email us at liftmode@liftmode.com, and mention that you left a non-Amazon review of one of our products on the internet, and send us a link to it.
Step 5) We will email back within a day, providing you with a one time $20 discount code which can be used to save $20 on any Amazon purchase of LiftMode products of more than $20 in value (before shipping).

Important notice: for now, the $20 discount coupon will not work on LiftMode.com, because we have not set up discount codes there yet. It is high on our list of improvements to prioritize.

So go check out our supply! It pays to sample LiftMode products!

Nice Job Tommy

Blessed is he who, in the name of health and fitness, shepherds the weak through the valley of supplement darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper.

I'm not going to buy liftmode products because of this. Seems like they are trying to make up for a garbage product.

Yeah, LiftMode does offer a 20 dollar coupon in exchange for a review.....However, It's worth noting that the review does not have to be a positive one. I have personally written honest reviews for a couple of products I found disappointing and still received the coupon as promised. With that said I think the reason the reviews are all positive is because their Phenibut is probably the best on the market, the reason there are so voluminous is because of the incentive program.

The problem is that the reviewers were lying when they clicked "No" when asked "Were you offered an incentive to write this review?"

So is there an issue with writing a review if you have been offered an incentive but also write a thorough, honest review?

I get that. So if you don't lie about it you can post a review? I'm just curious.
