Amazon Vine

Amazon Vine

There is no clear cut process to being picked to participate in the Amazon Vine program but here are some steps that can increase your odds.

  1. Make sure your Amazon account is in good standing.
  2. Review products – even if you purchase a product somewhere else create a review for it on Amazon.
  3. Be concise. Get to the point. The mega-long reviews tend to be ignored especially if they’re just one big block of text. One word per dollar of cost is a good rule of thumb. A thousand word review for a $10 dollar item will be ignored and a 10 word review for a $1,000 item will also be ignored.
    1. If you do write a long review – break it up into sections. Use paragraphs to break it up. Long blocks of texts with no breaks are ugly and tend to be avoided. If you’re reviewing a complicated product break your review up into sections so the reader can skip to the parts that are important to him/her.
  4. Be specific. “It works pretty good.” or “It stinks” doesn’t give the shopper much to go on. Mention the quality of the product and give specific reasons why something is good or bad.
  5. Don’t write fake reviews.
  6. Cross your fingers. Amazon’s method of choosing vine participants is a bit of a mystery but doing the above will increase your odds of being chosen. Even if you’re not chosen your reviews will be much more helpful to others and that is a good thing. Good luck.
