Shopping on line is a multi-billion dollar business. But knowing which sites to trust and which sites not to trust is a tricky business. One of the best ways to know if a site is trustworthy is to check how long it has been in business. A site that is months old may or may not be trustworthy. On the other hand a site such as LiveLeanToday.com that has been online for nearly 2 decades is obvisouly a site that is here for the long haul. Now there are 2 types of reviews out there to help you decide if a sites is trust-able. Customer reviews and 3rd party reviews. Then there are reviews of products themselves.
If you have been paying attention at all to the news you have most certainly heard about all the fake reviews on Amazon and Ebay. There are businesses out there, that for a fee will write reviews on Amazon and Ebay making your business look good or your product look good. In fact Amazon is suing many of these businesses for doing just that. So how do you know which reviews are fake and which are real. The problem is you don’t. Both Amazon and the seller on Amazon benefit from the fake reviews or AstroTurf reviews. If you reading reviews and buying products on Amazon they are making money. My advice is not to trust any of them. Reviews on other sites like SiteJabber, Trustsite, epionions, Bizrate, and the BBB are either written by the owner of the business or a competitor trying to damage the competitions brand.
That is where site like LiveLeanToday.com differ. Our reviews are written by customers only and are reviews by our staff. You see, to us it is important that reviews are real. We sell every brand so selling one item over another makes no difference to us. But selling a quality product to our customer does. Why you ask? Because if you read reviews telling you a product is great and them you buy that product and it does not live up to fake hype, you are not
going to be a happy customer. An unhappy customer may not shop with us again, so it benefits us if a product is not good for others to share that information so that you do not buy a product that is not good. To us it does not matter which product you buy as long as you are satisfied the products you buy and continue to be a long term customer. That is our main mission, “To keep long term customers”. If you are anything like me, you are going to be using supplements for life, and do not want to waste money of new products that are just marketing hype. Or a product that has changed and is no longer what it used to be. Or better yet to find out that users of another supplement think it is great and you now know that it is worth trying.
Years ago, a scam website bought a name similar to LiveLeanToday.com. It was LiveLeanToday.net. They ran a horrible business and where not taking care of customers. So the angry customers went online to voice their opinion. These reviews even though they were not our customers were making us look bad online. Fortunately the website closed and LiveLeanToday’s reputation is being repaired and the 100’s of thousands of our satisfied customers still enjoy our top ranked customer service and lowest prices available.
One other item about reviews, typically if you are satisfied with your service you say nothing, but the angry customer, who enters their own address incorrectly, or has the package sitting at the front door, or their credit card is declined, or expected to lose 50 pounds of fat in 1 week, or is mentally ill. Yes we have had several mentally ill customers. These people are quick to write a negative review even though the issue is their fault. So the review system itself is flawed but as with Live Lean Today we are basically a third party when it comes to product reviews and it seves us no benefit to interfere with the process.
