If you're reading this blog, you're likely well aware of our incentive-laden review system that allows you to write a review of one of our products or submit a photo review to earn store credit. If this is news to you, check out How to Save Money On Restaurant Supplies for more detailed information. For a cliffnotes version, the bottom line is this: Over the past few years, customers at WEBstaurantStore.com could earn $2 for written reviews, and $4 for photo reviews.
Strap yourselves in, ladies and gentlemen, because the review process is about to get even more exciting!
First, we recently enhanced the photo review experience to make it easier for you to identify individual aspects of your photo submission. For those times when words can only say so much on their own, you can now drag your commentary over top of a specific part of an image so that future customers are quickly and easily able to identify what it is you're referencing.
And the big news...
While the enhanced photo review system will certainly be helpful, what you're really going to love is that we are now accepting video reviews! Submitting a video review requires the same steps as submitting a photo review but, because they must be at least 30 seconds long, show the product in use, and include audio commentary, they will also require a bit more ambition. But I promise you that your work will pay off--in the form of a $10 credit for every approved video!
If that weren't enough, here's even more motivation to get hop aboard the video review bandwagon, and hop aboard now. Whichever customer submits the BEST video by the end of April is going to receive a $200 credit to WEBstaurantStore.com!
So put some time into these videos, people; it will quite literally pay off. For an example of a solid video review, check out Nick Moyer's review of the Waring BB180 44 oz. NuBlend commercial bar blender by clicking the video directly beneath the product image.
Editor's Note: It looks like Nick is using Silver Patron in his margarita. After noting that a bottom shelf product would have also done the trick, tequila connoisseurs the world over cried.
