This is really some recent product review experience followed by a question.
I see many product reviews here and every time I think about starting one, I get apprehensive about writing a review of a product I do not own, have played around with, or is a program I have NOT joined.
One of my first reviews was about the Omron 7 Wrist blood pressure monitor. I have had a wrist blood pressure monitor before and I had done my research to know that this one was one of the best wrist blood pressure monitors on the market but I didn't actually own it.
I knew my review was accurate, because of the amount of research I had completed but there was something missing.
About 1 week later I decided to purchase the Omron 7 monitor for myself. After receiving the monitor in the mail, I took pictures of it as I opened it up and tried it for the first time. Wow! There was so much more that I could now add after seeing it firsthand. Here is the link to my Omron 7 Detailed Review.
This issue of reviewing products has come up again several times in the past few weeks. I reviewed the Omron 10 upper arm blood pressure monitor and then reviewed a different affiliate program by signing up and actually going through some of the training. I learned so much by wasting 3 hours of my evening before it became obvious to me that Afilorama was nothing like Wealthy Affiliate.
Here is my question to all of you.
How can I conduct serious reviews, that are believable to me at least, without actually owning the product or joining the program?
Most of the reviews I see from Wealthy Affiliate seem great but I can't seem to bring myself to write a review without having hands on knowledge.
I would really appreciate any thoughts or advice any of you could offer.
