How to Find Products to Review in the Make Money Online Niche?
A lot of people have been asking me about how did I managed to find so many products & scams to review for my Make Money Online (MMO) niche website. (Basically, it's our Affiliate Bootcamp site)
Instead of answering each person every single time, I think I should write a post on this topic because it seems like a lot of people need help on this.
So, let's begin...
6 Ways to Find Digital Products
#1 Utilizing Affiliate Networks
Here are some useful places you can go to:
ClickBank, JVZoo and WarriorPlus are all affiliate networks which are mainly for digital products. These are places for merchants to launch their digital products and for affiliates to grab affiliate links and promote.
So there are tons of products for you to review and promote at the same time. You can even choose the type of products you want to review. For example in the screenshot below I select "Affiliate Marketing" Products.
The trick is that you can still grab their affiliate link and place it in your review even though the program is a scam or a low quality product.
I've personally seen cases where there are still people purchasing the product that I reviewed as scam and still earn a commission for that.
One more benefit of these platforms is that there's usually a "List of Top Selling Products" for the day, for the week or for the month. These are great opportunities for you to look into as well.
(By the way, CB Engine is a website which shows you the ClickBank products that they highly recommend you to promote.)
#2 Product Launch Calendar Websites
Have you heard of:
These are websites that consolidate all the digital products which are ready to be launched in the near future or have been recently launched.
Take a look at the screenshot of MunchEye:
The advantage of using this kind of platforms to find products is that you'll be the first few who write the review on the products. So, you may have a slight advantage as there isn't much competition for the keyword yet.
However, the downside is that you don't have much information available online for you to write a thorough review for the product.
Also, not all the products there will become popular. So you need to be able to find trending products which have the potential to become popular. If not, your product review won't give you much results and earnings.
This is unlike products in platforms like ClickBank where you have past statistics for you to refer to and determine which products are popular.
#3 Facebook Groups
Some active Facebook Groups are good places for you to network with like-minded people and build your authority in your niche.
However, there are many FB Groups that are just there for spammers to post their own promotions, etc. I'm sure you're aware of that, right?
Normally, we'll prefer the first type of FB Group but in the case of finding products to review, the second type of FB Group are useful sometimes.
Just go to Facebook and search for Groups using keywords like "make money online", "affiliate marketing", "blogging", etc.
Join some of those Groups and you'll find quite a number of potential products to promote. You can just do some research on the products those spammers are recommending.
#4 YouTube Comments
This strategy is similar to Facebook Groups.
Basically, you go to YouTube and search for videos using general keywords like the ones I've mentioned earlier (make money online, etc...) Click on any of the popular videos and go to the comment section.
You can probably see qutie a number of spammers promoting their own products there.
Those are good opportunities for you to write reviews on those products.
(You can refer to Steve's training on this strategy)
#5 Google Alerts
This exact same strategy can be used to find products to review.
You can use it to notify you regarding the latest product review in your niche or the latest product launch. It all depends on how you choose your keywords.
#6 Kyle's Product Review List
Finally, Kyle has actually provided us with a bunch of products to review.
Take a look at this:
If you've gone through the Affiliate Bootcamp course, you would have access to this PDF. There are tons of products for you to research and review so this can keep you busy for quite a while.
The downside of this list is that it was created some time ago and some of the products there are no longer available. So, you need to do your own research to see if the product you're reviewing is still available or not.
Recently, Kyle has just PM me another list of products to review. Some of you might have received it from Kyle as well.
For those who didn't, let me know in the comments below that you want the list and I'll PM you.
Because the list is pretty long. I think it's better to send via PM.
What if there are already many reviews for the product?
So, I've just provided you with quite a lot of ways to find digital products to review for your MMO website.
Now, I would like to talk about some of the limiting beliefs/mindset about writing product reviews that may be troubling you right now.
And the first issue is that some of you might not feel confident enough to write product reviews because you've seen all the existing reviews ranking on Page 1 of Google.
You're probably thinking...
- What's the point of me writing reviews when they're so many people doing the same thing?
- How can I beat those high ranking reviews when I'm just getting started?
Yes, I understand that there may have many reviews about the product already, but does that mean those reviews are definitely good?
You can always do some research and come up with a more thorough review or approach the product review with a slightly different angle.
If you do some research, you'll mostly likely find a few reviews that are very biased or have very limited info.
The reality is that you can always outrank other reviews as long as you follow the training here inside Wealthy Affiliate.
Jay's webinars are very helpful, especially these ones:
- 2018 Blog Post Checklist
- Jay's SEO Process for 2018
- 7 SEO Strategies to Explode Your Rankings in 2018
- 21 Minute Ranking Method in 7 Steps
Some of the strategies may be repeated in these training but that just shows that these strategies work.
Instead of focusing on the fears and difficulties that your brian creates out of no where or your own imagination, why not focus on upgrading your skills and go out there and crush it?
How to Write Product Reviews if I Don't Owned the Product?
This is another common question a lot of people have asked me before.
My answer is that you can always write product reviews without owning the product.
I've written a separate post on this topic:
BONUS TIP #1: Think Creatively
There are a lot of ways to come up with product review ideas. All you have to do is to think creatively. Here are some of the common types of product you can review:
- Make Money Online Course
- Software products / Online Tools
- Online Paid Survey Sites
- Mobile Apps
- Website Hosting
- Website Builder
- Keyword Research Tool
- MLM Companies/Products
- Pyramid Schemes
I hope that this list is helpful and gives you some ideas. But most importantly is to be creative of how you find products, write reviews and promote them.
Sometimes, you may find the most effective strategy is the one that you're trying out something new and playing the game a bit differently.
BONUS TIP #2: Just do it!
Some people have the fear and doubt of writing product reviews. My advice to you is JUST DO IT!
"No matter what you do, in the beginning it's going to suck, because you suck. But you'll get better, and you'll suck less. And as you keep doing this, eventually you'll suck so little...you'll actually be good."
In fact, all the experts started off as a disaster. If you don't take the action to DO IT right now, you'll never be good at it and you'll never enjoy the benefits that it can bring to your life.
As you start researching and writing product reviews, you can actually find more and more products to review along the way.
I used to be stuck at the stage to find products to review, like you're probably experiencing now.
But the more I do it, the more proficient I am and all the different products and ideas just keep flowing in.
If you take a look at the products being launched in JVNotify and MunchEye, you can actually see that there are a lot of products being launched every single week or even every single day.
I firmly believe that the number of products we can review is endless because they just keep coming.
Now, I've given you some tips. It's time for you to go out there and crush it for yourself :)
