My experience with Home Product Testing
I am not a member of this review site. While I commend their decision to charge a monthly subscription fee, I will not be signing up because of it (I just don’t feel like paying when I am on 15 bazillion other lists.)
NOTE: I foresee many other sites moving toward a fee-based subscription model in the future. The main reason is that it becomes expensive to maintain hundreds or thousands of subscribers and not be able to gauge their intentions. A nominal subscription fee could be a great way to cut the wheat from the chaff, as they say, and make your reviewer list more concentrated with highly engaged folks.
This is one of the first review sites I have seen that charges a monthly fee, and I foresee others following suit. I see charging a monthly fee helping the Sellers, Reviewers and the site owner:
- Sellers feel the site has a serious reviewer base
- Many of the problems you are facing on other sites competing against 50-150K other Reviewers for product is likely not a problem here
- And the site owner is able to better budget for site maintenance and upgrades, while keeping lurkers, scammers and trolls to a minimum
