I have always said that no author or company would ever offer money for a review on Amazon.
I can't say that anymore. It just happened.
The author of the Milo Regimen just wrote me and said I'd get ten bucks if I posted a five star review.
Not an honest review
Not "Can I send you my book?"
But ten smackarois to say I love it
In my nearly 3 years at number one this is the first time anyone ever asked for a paid review so I have to think this can't be a good book or it's just a very unusual business model.
With loads of people happy to review any product at no cost if they actually read and like the item , I can't understand this.
While I get offered books all the time, cash is a first.
Obviously you will never see my review for this item. I said no, I don't do this.
Anyone else get this request? I was curious as to how much money they put aside to get people to find it a great read.
You can't believe in your product if you have to pay off people to enjoy it. Most authors write and say if I'd just read their book I'd love it.
