Hi,

I am in the middle of writing a review called "What are the best toys for Australian Cattle Dogs". Right now, Amazon is the only place that I am an affiliate of that carries a lot of toys for dogs. I had planned to compare similar products from Amazon with a similar product in the other store I am an affiliate of.

Unfortunately, the other store doesn't carry the toys I want to review. Is it an acceptable format to select 5 of the best products for cattle dogs and just review those 5 products and why they are good for cattle dogs or do I have to select 2 products that are the same type of product and compare them with each other and suggest the best one? Would this be a better way to do the buyer guide than just reviewing 5 of the best toys for Australian cattle dogs?

I would like your honest opinion of what format of this buyer guide would provide the most value. I have only written 3 buyer guides so far and 2 of them just described 3 to 5 completely different products.

I hope this makes sense, I really want this to be a good product review and provide value.

Thanks so much for your help!

Barbara

Finding the features and converting them to benefits is very useful. What are the key features of toys you present and what is their purpose? Many times not all products have the same features so that is where the reader has to decide which feature for what benefit is most important? So presenting the pros and cons of each product becomes important. So you can introduce the issue you wish to address. What toys will accomplish or resolve that. And then how some products are superior or inferior in serving that purpose.

Presenting the Product group can include how they work, what they do, what are their benefits vs another product group, .what makes them different, what you think about them, and then comparing your selected products Pros and Cons and then giving a conclusion.

Hi - if you give your readers too much choice, they won't buy anything at all.

So, why not a best toy for a specific need rather than 5 random toys?

So, the best chew toy, the best puzzle toy, the best tug toy etc.

And that way, you will also cover more keywords, if somebody is searching specifically for a chew toy for Australian cattle dogs, for example.

Don't forget to go in-depth and make it a review, not just a product description.

So presenting these 5 different products they each are the best of their own type of toy, is that what you mean?

Thanks very much, Diane!

Hi - yes, so, in that way, you are telling your readers exactly which one to buy, depending on their need.

There is no need for them to go away and think about which one of the 5 random toys to buy.

Because one thing to realise with Amazon, is that they only offer a 24 hour cookie.

Your customer has to purchase within 24 hours of clicking your link or you don't get the commission.

So, if they see too many options, they might get confused and decide to sleep on it, and then you have potentially lost that sale.

Jeff Bezos is such a tightwad for a billionaire! That's the shortest cookie I have seen!

Thanks, Diane!

I can see the dilemma and I think can best make my point as a consumer.

I'm often suspicious of one-on-one comparisons unless I completely trust the reviewer, perhaps from past experience. I don't trust the comparisons to be unbiased.

So as I consumer I like to see reviews that compare more than 2 products (if there are more than 2 products to consider) especially if the products are diverse, as some might be for dog toys. I do like to see a pros and cons list that doesn't directly compare the products.

I think that is what i am doing because these are different types of toys no 2 are the same.

Thanks very much, Richard!
