Getting Free Stuff To Review

    I've just published a review of a book called 'review ninja' that I got given for free (as a pdf) by someone who contacted me via hubpages wanting a review. It's nice to get something free, and I was wondering whether this happens often. Have any other hubbers been sent free stuff to review on hubpages?

    I have been asked to write about topics but not reviews per se. There are sites that do look for writers to do reviews though so is not really new. Just do a search and will see the sites that offer this service to businesses but are also looking for writers. smile

      I know there are loads of review sites out there - I even wrote a hub about making money on them - but I was suprised to have someone email me out of the blue to ask for a review on hubpages, so I was just wondering whether that specifically has happened to other hubbers.

    You should ensure you make yourself aware of the new FTC rules regarding product reviews and endorsements.

    If you have received a free product in exchange for reviewing it you need to disclose this.

    You would obviously be a small fish in a big pond so they wouldn't be targeting you but it doesn't hurt to be aware of changes in legislation and keep everything by the book.

    I write reviews on googlebooks and alibris. I download a lot of military history and military material culture books for research.
