This post is for influencers, bloggers and brands, it’s about how to make money from product reviews and to write for long term success. Figured I’d say that since the title sounds like it would be only to teach bloggers how to make money when doing product reviews.
The biggest mistake I see in product reviews is that the person or people reviewing the product only reviews the product or the brand. The problem with this is that even with an engaged audience, you only get the one time boost in traffic or affiliate sales. That helps nobody, for the most part, except the brand with the one time shot of traffic (assuming there is an engaged audience).
There is always the chance that you’ll rank for the brand’s trademarks and intercept some of their traffic, but guess what, all of the other sites that do the same reviews are competing with you and will eventually take your space. So what can you do differently when reviewing products to aim for long term traffic, revenue and to add value? Simple, solve a problem while reviewing the product.
This post will walk you through multiple examples of how to do this with blog posts, YouTube videos and also help you turn a simple product review into a weeks worth of marketing campaigns and content. If you don’t have time to read this now, bookmark it and come back. You’ll not only learn to build your audience and bring in new advertisers, but you’ll also learn to monetize the reviews for passive and recurring income.
