Product Review FAQ
Q: What types of products do you review?
A: We are open to reviewing any products that are relative to our audiences, which means, we do have a place we can review the majority of submissions we receive.
Q: Do you review books, movies and music?
A: Absolutely! We love books, movies and music.
Q: Do you review restaurants, food and drink items?
A: We sure do. If sending a food item with a reasonable shelf life, please give us a heads up when you send it. There’s nothing worse than spoiled food sitting in a box for a week. If you are inviting us to dine at your establisment, please let us know a time window and we will confirm with you according to our schedule.
Q: How long does it typically take to review a product?
A: It really depends on what is in our review queue at any given time, and how much review time we have available. In general we like to say give us at least 14 business days, especially for books, since we usually have quite a stack to make our way through.
Q: If I send my product, is a review guaranteed?
A: Unfortunately we cannot guarantee product reviews, but we do promise to at least look at everything that comes across our desk and will do our best to write something up about it.
Q: If I send my product, will it be returned to me?
A: Unfortunately we cannot return review products. So please, do not send us the only copy of grandma’s handwritten cookbook.
Q: Will I be notified if/when my product is reviewed?
A: Absolutely! If we can find you that is. To make things easier on us, please include contact information when submitting your product so we can find it easily.
Q: If reviewed, which TwinStar Media properties will my product be reviewed on?
A: This is where the product subject matter comes into play, and in many cases the review will be published on multiple sites as well as the websites of some of our partners (potential exposure bonus for you!). The main site the review of your product(s) will show up are on 863 Magazine, possibly 813 Magazine and 407 Magazine if the market is suitable. And if it fits into any of the numerous niche properties that we have, it will be published there as well.
Q: If I would like my product to be included on your site, but am unable to send one for review, is there a way to still get it included?
A: For items unavailable for review there is a PAID INCLUSION option (subject to approval). If interested in this option, please contact us for more information.
