Selectos, expert in product testing
At Selectos, our mission is to help as many people as possible make better purchases.
To do this, our team of experts impartially tests hundreds of products every month.
Since our company was founded in 2019, we’ve always tried to improve our processes in order to find the best products on the market. Here’s where we are today.
Is your advice really impartial?
Impartiality is our company’s most important value. We will never recommend one brand over another for a fee.
Our testers aim to find the best products on the market, whatever the brand. It is on these values that we aim to build a relationship of trust with our audience.
How do you make money?
At Selectos, all the content we produce is accessible free of charge, because our mission is to help as many people as possible make better purchases.
Of course, we need to generate revenue to pay our employees. To do this, we use the following monetization methods:
1 – Affiliation: on our website and Youtube channel, when you click on a link to an e-commerce site and make a purchase, we often receive a small commission from the e-commerce site.
2 – Sponsored articles and placements: these are created in collaboration with brands wishing to increase the visibility of their products on Selectos. Sponsored articles and placements are clearly marked as such wherever they appear.
This content is not written by our editorial team, but by an independent commercial editor. Our editorial team is never influenced in its recommendations by potential collaborations between the sales team and certain brands.
What's your process for finding the best products?
First, we choose a product category for which we want to create a comparison. This choice is determined by the popularity of the category, the ease of obtaining the products and the complexity of the test protocols. Once a category has been defined, we assign an expert tester to the project.
The expert begins by analyzing and comparing the most popular products on the market. To identify the models with the most potential, the expert relies on external sources, technical data sheets, tests by other experts and online customer reviews.
Once the expert has identified the models with the most potential, we provide them to us, then the expert tests them following the protocol he has defined.
Testing generally takes 1-3 days, depending on the complexity of the products. For example, testing staplers is much easier than testing robot vacuum cleaners.
Once the tests are complete, the expert summarizes his results in a large comparative table, then decides which products to recommend for each price range.
At Selectos, we like to recommend products for all budgets. That’s why we try to recommend entry-level, mid-range and high-end products in as many categories as possible.
Our aim is not to recommend the products with the most features, or the latest releases that haven’t yet proved their worth. We want to help you find products that offer excellent value for money and will last over time.
As the market evolves over time, we frequently update our selections by testing new products.
