Message: Posted by: IAIN (Nov 14, 2017 02:01PM)
Maybe this might help?

title
format
price
what is this suitable for? close-up? corporate? stage? list them

how did I get it?
asked - given - bought - pretended to be friends with them - someone didn't like it so sent me it

relationship with creator
lapdog - we constantly bump each others threads - fake account, its me! - don't know them - met him/her in a bar - we PM/email sometimes - I'm on their mailing list - been given a review copy but been told not to say so

who am i?
what is my experience?
do I perform socially?
do I perform for pay?
what is my persona/angle?
will I say I am a full-time working pro when really I do one gig a month for a meal and cab fare home at TGIs?

what is this product?
what is the blurb and is it honest?
what did you like and why?
what didn't you like and why?
does it remind you of anything else?
will you constantly contradict yourself in your posts about this subject matter and then say "its ok, its just my opinion!"
are you lying about any of the above because you think it will make you more popular?
do you have crippling ego problems and feel the best way to sate it is to do reviews?
or have you been made to believe that the creator is actually your friend, when really they're just using you - and you feel petrified to admit it in case you get chucked out of the club?
will you read the above and think its specifically about you?
does that make this a new Forer effect?
are you the most well-read mentalist in the world, ever?
are you drunk?
marks out ten for the product
marks out of ten for how drunk you are

Honestly who thought review guidelines could be a solid format for a brutal roast?

So actually the FTC has laws about published endorsements and reviews. I'm not sure if it's worth it's own post as they are quite in depth.
