In Monday’s Core Update we mentioned that nobody had correctly completed a Private Review on the Soundcore Collective. It’s taken me a little while to get back round to this, but I’d now like to clarify what happened and what you need to do to earn Points/Notes on Soundcore Private Reviews.
Firstly, you can (currently) leave a product review in the Conversations or even Gallery section - we can refer to this as a Public Review. There is no problem with this. However, leaving reviews here will not earn you any Notes - you’ll simply be rewarded the regular Points that you would for uploading a Thread or image/video.
To earn Notes on your reviews, they need to be uploaded to the “Review” section in your profile, as shown below. We can refer to these as Private or Profile Reviews.
Last week, some members had uploaded Private Reviews to the Review section of their profile. However, the link they used for the review did not correspond with the platforms that are available to choose from:
This meant that all of their Private Reviews were invalid. For example, someone may have selected “soundcore.com” as their platform, but entered a YouTube link. The system has been updated, so it’s no longer possible to enter a review link that does not align with the platform you’ve chosen.
Also, as stated in the table of “How to Earn Points/Notes”, there are a few other rules for uploading reviews in your profile:
As you can see, it’s harder to earn on these Private Reviews, but it does mean that as soon as you purchase a product you can get something back by simply reviewing it on one of the platforms we’ve made available to you.
A few questions from me:
- I’ve seen something interesting developing on the Soundcore Collective, which is very different to the Anker Community. Here, you guys can leave Private Reviews in the “Review” tab of your profile and earn Notes on that, which is, in some ways, similar to earning money because it leads to coupons, i.e. discounts off products (awesome right?). We all know that now, and that’s partially what we’ve just discussed. BUT, besides that, I’ve seen the Gallery morphing into a place for Public Reviews. On the Anker Community, those Public Reviews are left in the forum area (the equivalent of our Conversations area). I actually like the idea of making the Gallery THE area for these Public Reviews. This way when you guys go there, it’ll be to see cool images, cool videos and Collective member feedback on those particular products. To me it seems to be a better fit than leaving Public Reviews in our Conversation area. What do you think?
- Besides the options we’ve made available to you for places you can leave reviews, are there other websites you also think we should add in?
- What are your thoughts on the current system? How would you improve it? What would you change?
