We live in a world of ‘rate or slate’. put simply, people either love something and really ‘rate it’ or they hate it, and ‘slate it’.
In the past, people’s views would have been largely constrained to them, their immediate family, mates they met down the pub, and if they wanted to, the letters page in Which?
Nowadays we all have access to twitter and facebook, to post opinions on things that matter to us.
As CEO of King of Shaves, I’m naturally fixated on what people’s experience are with our products. Especially when we launch a new one, that has taken 5 years and cost £7m. Hyperglide. With any product, whether it works or not can only be objectively determined by YOU using it. Not listening to what others say. But, in our #rateorslate Trip Advisor world, there are people’s views out there that for sure I read and if appropriate, comment on.
Right now, on Amazon we have 5 ratings for Hyperglide. 3 are 5 star. 2 are 1 star. Work that one out. You can read them by clicking here Weird huh? 3 x 5 star ratings. 2 x 1 star ratings. Then you see the two low ratings opine that the user is going back to their previous brand. Gillette. Wilkinson Sword. I leave you to make your own mind up.
We have reviews on our own website here. There are currently 13. These are (IMHO) more reflective of our razor and it’s performance. But, I would say that, wouldn’t I!
Alternatively you can check out this Hyperglide review from respected men’s grooming journalist, Lee Kynaston.
Or this video review by male grooming blogger, Robin James. With 4,700+ views, 100+ likes & 2 dislikes, it’s clear what his view is on it.
Alternatively, you may live in the USA, and want a native American’s view on it. Well, ‘Mantic59 is renowned for his objective opinion on all things razor sharp, read his review here Is it a ‘game changer’ or not? We’ll see, for sure!
I’d LOVE you to review Hyperglide personally. And let ME know what you think. You can do this by tweeting me out on the twitter, or of course leaving a comment on our facebook page (UK page here, US page here).
After all, it’s YOUR opinion and experience of our revolutionary new razor that counts. Not someone elses. After all, opinions are like butt-holes. Everybody has one. Just Saying.
