When I started at InsiderPages, Yelp didn’t exist, but there was this service called AngiesList that we were obsessed with. AngiesList was a pioneer in figuring out how to get contractor reviews and ratings out of people.

Back in the day, InsiderPages made a splash by giving out $5 Starbucks cards for five business reviews.  One of our then-rivals, Judysbook, came out with a promotion to give away iPods for 100 reviews.  Then Yahoo Local came out with giving away a car to some lucky reviewer (I think it was a GM car so maybe not so lucky).

Today I got an email from Angie’s List announcing they were running a promotion to generate doctor and dentist reviews for their service and they are getting in on cool toys for reviews game.  In exchange for writing 15 reviews, 3 of which are for medical service providers, they will give you a Flip Video camera.  That seems like a no brainer.

I checked around at some other local review sites to see if they are running any promotions and here’s what I found:

InsiderPages Fundraisers: Raise money for your local organization by writing reviews

The Suggestr Rewards: Get points towards merchandise for writing reviews, inviting friends, etc.

Know of any other sites running reviews promotions?  Send em on in.

    Hi, good post on encouraging reviews. 15 for a flip video is a steal. For those of you that need some good review bait. We could offer aff partners $5 phone cards that you could give away. Like the starbucks cards. But no cost to you

    drop me a line

    In France, justacote.com is buying such reviews 15€ for 100 reviews.

    This is a good try, but i wonder about the confidence of such advices.
