How to write Product Reviews that convert into sales ?
Writing a good product review is very important when using this monetizing method. A well written product review can drastically improve your sales percentage and get you more commission. That is why it is important to choose the products that you are already interested in or you have a previous background experience in using those products. The experience can help you write excellent reviews that your readers can enjoy and hopefully make them buy the product at the end. Amazon has made it very easy for blogger to review products and has all the information that you will need to start writing your reviews on your blog.
After you have chosen the product that you want to review start writing a nice explanatory text on how the product can benefit your readers and include affiliate links in the content of your article. Make sure to write a good high quality reviews and not just say “This product is great, check it out”,but instead include as much information as you can about your product.
Amazon also offers a variety of promotional tools that you can use on your blog that can help you increase your conversations such as widgets that you can implement on your blog, banners of different categories or niches, embedded products with included reviews etc. That is why we suggest that you first get familiar with amazon associates program and play around with the tools they offer you that can help you with your product promotions.
Do not stop at writing just one review for one product instead write as much reviews as you can for a variety of products. Try to write at least one review a day at first and choose a different product for every review since maybe not all of your visitors are interested in that particular product so you will increase your chances in getting a sale by adding different categories of products.
This method requires only 1 hour of your time a day and can be done by anyone that has the desire to start making some money from their blog. If you have some free time than go ahead and start writing your reviews. You can leave us a comment on your results or if you have any other questions regarding this article.
