Since its launch just over a month ago the site has been gaining popularity with people who have an interest in home, garden & lifestyle products. “consumers have been leaving comments and reviews on the products we have tested which is very heartening” said Ken Chapman the veteran internet marketer who has a hand in running the site. He goes on to say “people enjoy and respond to real reviews by real people who have actually used the product outside of test conditions”.
The Fiskars weed remover has been added to the growing number of reviews on the site and the response so far has been overwhelmingly positive, with almost no negative comments or reviews. “Having conducted the testing myself on this particular product it seems that Fiskars have a winner here” said Ken and that conclusion has been shared by the dozens of independent reviews on the product so far. As well as testing the products the site provides buying guides and tips on how to avoid buying from unauthorised sellers.
Although it is not in the business of retailing or supplying any products directly to consumers it hopes to provide updated price and supplier information wherever possible to make life as easy as possible for consumers. “We achieve our impartiality by supporting the site operating costs via unobtrusive advertising, our advertisers hope that if visitors decide to purchase a product then they may click on an advert that is right there on page” he said. There is no obligation for consumers to buy or to click or to purchase from an associated advert.
With regard to the name thediypeople.com he says “our initial interest was purely in DIY products, however as more people joined the team we realised that we had a wide range of needs and expertise and expanded to include the whole homes and gardens market place”.
“We are extremely proud and excited that the fruition of our ideas are finally available to the general internet community and would love for as many people as possible to contribute to an ever growing resource” is the statement that accompanies the news of the web site going live.
