    SUBMITTING PRODUCTS


    1. How do I submit a product for your evaluation?

      • Go to the page footer and select "Submit Product".  Fill out the form and follow the instructions where to send the product samples.

    2. Where do I send the sample product I want to submit?

      • The shipping address is listed on the product submission form
    3. When is the deadline I need my product(s) submitted by?

      • There is no deadline.  Our product evaluation service is an ongoing process
    4. Who does the evaluation of the products?

      • The evaluation is performed by credentialed in-house staff, credentialed independent evaluators, and consumers (spontaneous hands-on evaluation)
    5. What makes you different from the other awards programs?

      • This is NOT an awards program. Awards programs are fee-based and non fee-based. Most if not all have deadlines for submission.

      • Our program was established in 1971 and is ongoing (no deadlines)

      • We provide a far more in-depth and accurately detailed evaluation of products and services than any awards programs commonly used

      • No product or online service submitted for evaluation is a one-shot deal.  If a product or online service fails to meet our strict standards, a detailed report is provided which outlines the items which need to be changed to pass our evaluation.  There are no fees for initial submission or re-submission

     

    WEB SITE PURPOSE


    1. What is the purpose of your web site?

      • The purpose of this web site is first and foremost to create support in multiple industries and categories.  Support is of course in a different form for a consumer than it may be for a distributor/reseller yet each of our staff does their best to deliver.

    2. Doesn't the variety of the content cause loss of interest of readers?

      • This question requires looking at it from two different perspectives.

        • What one person may see as useless, another may see it as invaluable.
        • Variety which is provided effectively serves a wider range of readers/clients which in turn generates more traffic.  More traffic generally equates to a greater level of popularity, (although not necessarily always.)

    TARGET AUDIENCE


    1. What is your target audience?


      • Our target audience is more than just one single target due to the diversity and volume of content.

      • We originally started with just product evaluations for books, games, toys, and a variety of other products but like with anything else in life, the popularity/demand ratio requires more than just a single target.

        All content is targeted for retailers, distributors, product developers, and consumers for a wide variety of industries.


      • Do you have any specific audience you target more than the rest?

      • No. The target audiences are essentially multiple at all times once again due to the diversity of the content.
