ELITE PRODUCT REVIEWER
What in the hay is a Show Shine Garage Elite Product Reviewer?
Show Shine Garage invites only the most awesome and trusted members on our site to review and post their opinions about current, new and, wait for it, pre-release items! The program was created to help fellow Show Shine Garage customers make informed purchasing decisions beyond reading regular site reviews.
Elite Product Reviewers get chosen based on their reviewer rank, which is a reflection of the value and helpfulness of their reviews as judged by other Show Shine Garage customers. Show Shine Garage provides Elite Product Review members with free products that have been submitted to the program by Show Shine Garage and participating vendors.
Elite Product Reviews are the independent opinions of the individual reviewer. Vendors cannot influence, modify or edit the reviews. Show Shine Garage will not modify or edit Elite Product Reviewers reviews, as long as they comply with our customer review guidelines. To identify Elite Product Reviewer's reviews, just look for the customer review with a gold seal.
What's the point of the Show Shine Garage Elite Product Reviewer program?
Good question! In addition to regular site reviews, this elevated platform allows customers to receive additional honest and unbiased feedback from some of Show Shine Garages' most reliable reviewers.
This sounds great! How do I join?
So you want in, huh? Show Shine Garage Elite Product Reviewer is an invitation-only program. Elite Product Reviewers are selected based on several benchmarks, but mainly due to the helpfulness of their reviews as judged by other customers and by their demonstrated interest in the types of goods the program features. Customers who consistently write useful reviews and develop a deep understanding of certain product categories are most likely to receive an invite.
How are Elite Product Reviewers selected?
We want the Elite Product Reviewer program to reflect the absolute best of our growing body of customer reviewers. Reviewers are invited to participate in the Elite Product Reviewer program based on the overall helpfulness of all their reviews, factoring in the number of reviews they have written and with more weight given to recent reviews.
At the gist of it, Elite Product Reviewers become eligible based on the value and trust other Show Shine Garage customers place in his or her reviewing ability. In addition to the reviewer rank, we also weigh customers' demonstrated interest in products similar to those enrolled in the Elite Product Reviewer program. This facilitates product reviews by people who are familiar with the category they belong to. For example, if an Elite Product Reviewer mostly purchases car wash shampoos, it's more likely they'll be offered similar products to test and review.
Where does Show Shine Garage get the products?
Excellent question! Products are provided for free by our vendors that participate in the program.
Are Elite Product Reviewers expected to write only positive reviews?
Absolutely not! If an Elite Product Reviewer receives an underwhelming or underperforming product, we encourage those experiences to be shared on our site. We welcome honest opinions about the product - positive or negative, as long as the review conforms to our customer review guidelines. Additionally, customers can vote on the helpfulness of Elite Product Reviews just like they can for any other review.
Are Elite Product Reviewers paid for writing reviews or pressured to review favorably?
Negative. Customers are not paid to participate in the review program. Elite Product Reviewers are selected to participate based on their helpfulness of reviews voted on by other Show Shine Garage customers. Once invited into the program, to maintain Elite Product Reviewer eligibility, he or she must review all of the selected products within 14 days of receipt and continue to be among the reviewers with the highest ranks.
If an Elite Product Reviewer writes a negative review, will it impact his or her ranking?
Writing an undesirable review will never impact an Elite Product Reviewer ranking. A ranking is determined by the number of helpful votes from other customers. Customers tend to value detailed, objective, honest and informative reviews, regardless of whether it's written in a positive, negative or neutral light.
Can the participating vendors contact or otherwise influence Elite Product Reviewers?
Nope, not on our watch! All Elite Product Review products are submitted by vendors to Show Shine Garage and distributed by Show Shine Garage to the Elite Product Reviewers. Vendors will have absolutely no contact with the Elite Product Reviewers, as well as have no influence over which Elite Product Reviewers will review their products.
