    Go find a relevant forum, offer them a copy of the product in return for a video testimonial. Places like Warrior Forum love that shit...

    Yeah, easiest way is to just go to any other IM forum and offer a free copy in exchange for an 'honest' video testimonial.

    I usually don't make a big stink about anything but this thread rubbed me the wrong way...

    We all don't use fucking fake testimonials bro. I'm assuming you'd like to meet someone from the FTC.

    Don't be a fucking punk and use fake testimonials... you must be selling one hell of a shit pile if you need people to lie on camera to sell it...

    Why don't you move onto to something that's actually long term instead of wasting a shit load of time on something that won't even last... it doesn't make any sense to me why people work their asses off for such short term gain... I have no idea why that foolish mindset permeates this forum like a disease. :ninja4:

    I agree with you wholeheartedly, but remember that fake testimonials were born way before internet marketing was. Ever see one of those cheesy infomercials with the bad actors hyping up those poor quality, over priced products on TV late at night? How about the fake "news" shows they put together to try and trick low IQ couch potatoes into thinking they are hearing facts?

    The OP never identified his niche or his medium, but fake testimonials are everywhere you look, online and off, whether it's right or not.

    So they are. Though those news shows are shady, those are interviews, not testimonials. They're set-up interviews for a specific purpose, but nevertheless, they're still interviews. Set-up interviews aren't lies - fake testimonials are, and blatant lies at that.

    By the way, how long have you seen companies with fake testimonials last? Not long, because the good ol' FTC comes a runnin. Hence why we both agree on how stupid it is to take that route.

    Hey what can I say.. I'm an asshole!

    If it rubbed you up the wrong way, I'll remove the words "fake testimonial" the next time I tell a mama joke..

    Now I'm off to grab me some morals from the download board.. see you in there..

    Ask about in the hire a freelancer section, offer a few dollars, people may do it for you, I did for someone a while back, can't remember who.
    You never know someone may offer to do it for you.
