Every so often EpicSki is asked to identify a group of Power Users (an industry term for our most active members and influence leaders) to test new products. We are starting a test group next week. This involves using the product and discussing it in a private forum with the other testers and a company rep. You would have to give permission to use whatever you contribute to the forum to the sponsoring company. If you want to be considered for future test teams, here's how you apply:
1. Send me a PM with a URL to a review you contributed to EpicSki in the most recent 30 day period.
2. We will evaluate candidates based on:
- type of product (e.g., women's teams for women's skis)
- ability to write clearly about product features and benefits
- "cred points" on the site (the cumulative number of thumbs up to have received from community members for helpful information you have contributed)
We will try to rotate the members on teams but this is a merit system first and foremost. If you have any questions, ask away.
