Product Testing is available in Canada ~ In a variety of ways.
Some companies distribute free samples to a certain amount of people based on specific criteria. It may factor where you live, how old you are, If you have children, health problems, etc. Companies sometimes only have a certain amount of products to try, so they may even do it randomly.
You will need to be an active participant on these sites as, without competent reviewers, these programs wouldn’t work.
Brands / Review Companies with Product Testing Sites work together to allow you to try products for free in exchange for your input of feedback and honest opinion.
Each product review site works a little differently, and each review may have its requirements.
Not every single member will be eligible for every campaign. Criteria are usually based on a qualifying survey you will need to fill out such as children, location, shopping habits, hobbies, etc
To get the most of these programs, It’s a HUGE Qualifier to be an ACTIVE member of each of these sites.
You must expect “Nothing” and hope for “something” as an opportunity to try a product.
