8 Simple Article Styles To Make Money Online
Article Style #1: Product Reviews
This is a pretty obvious topic that maybe doesn't need to much discussion, but since it's one of the main post types I use, it belongs in this list!
Product reviews are great because they are a direct way to make money with your website. The idea is simple: Is this product good or bad, and should the reader buy it?
There are lots of way to go about writing a product review.
Here's a basic format I use frequently:
- Quick Summary
With 200 words per section, that's already a 1200 word blog post, and definitely rankable!
Here's another possible format:
- Product Use Cases
- New Version Details
- Comparison To Old Versions
Considering a tutorial in this format could be 500-1000 words, you have a potential 2,000-3000 word product review with this format! It might take a couple days to write, or even a week, but in the end it will be worth it when you have the most comprehensive review on Google page 1!
Product reviews are great to write because you can link back to them often, or use them to link to your other product reviews. That means each product review you write could be a part of a funnel, a "landing page", your main "money page".
In other words, you can use this as the first step, middle step, or end step to your money making process.
Pro Tip 1: Use an interesting title. "Product ABC Review" is pretty boring, but "Product ABC Review: Is It Worth The Hype" is much more clickable
Pro Tip 2: I don't write product reviews of multiple versions of a product unless they are significantly different. Sometimes a company will release version 1.2, but I'll usually wait until version 2.0 before I spend a significant amount of time writing a new review
Pro Tip 3: When you decide on a product review, brainstorm 3-5 keyword-focused topics that can allow you to link back to to your review and boost it's rank with internal linking.
