The power of RECOMMENDATIONs on Amazon and Trustpilot – repeated as a mantra by DM2Agency and… have a look how some eCommerce businesses desperately execute this:

An investigation by BBC 5 live and consumer group Which? uncovered the trade in false reviews:

  • Paid-for, or fake, reviews flout rules set by platforms such as Amazon and Facebook.
  • Some online sellers are offering people free goods in return for positive product reviews, e.g. a smartwatch
  • After posting a 3-star review with photos customers were told they would not be refunded unless they wrote a five-star review.

Tips: How to spot a fake review

  • Do not rely on ratings – delve deeper and read the reviews
  • Check the dates – look at when the reviews were posted. If many of them were posted in a short time period, it might mean there has been a push for reviews on Facebook groups or other platforms
  • Impartial reviews – click on some reviewers and check their history. Do they give everything five stars?
  • Pattern of ratings – are the ratings at different ends of the scale with very little in between? It is rare that people are completely polarised about a product
