Writing product reviews is one of the most common ways affiliate marketers promote products online. And for good reason too. Often times people searching around for a product review are a little closer to the buying stage. In addition, the format of a product review allows affiliates to provide their visitors with the necessary information to convince them to buy a particular product.

By providing a compelling and informative product review, you can both provide something of value to your visitors and make affiliate sales at the same time.
It’s a win-win situation!

Having been a full-time affiliate marketer for about a year now, I have written a lot of product reviews. I have also read a number of product reviews as well (as I do my research). I find that a large proportion of affiliate product reviews I come across are ineffective in a number of ways. Many affiliates make the mistakes of writing product reviews that are either too salesy, too disorganized, or that simply provide no value to the reader. What this ultimately means is that the affiliate is not making as many sales (if any) as he/she could be.

The purpose of this training resource is to help members of the WA community write the best possible reviews for the products they promote. All the information in this resource is based on my own experiences over the past year.

Hi Joe, This is by far the best resource on writting the product reviews. Especially for me as i still struggling to understnd how the IM works and how one should approach it. Thank you for your efforts and Keep up the good work.
I have a couple of Questions
1) Is ther any limit on the length of the review (no of words), somebody told me the longet the verticle scroll, the less chnages of people reading it.

2) Do you think, there should be separate website (domain) for each product review or one can have a common website and write as many reviews

3) can the same technique be used for wrtting a review article?

Regards,
Mugs

Thanks!

1) I would say that the word count really only depends on the product you're reviewing and whether or not you cover it in enough detail. I wouldn't focus on the word count so much, and focus more on trying to cover everything as best as you can.

If you follow the organization I give in this training resource, you will find your reviews will be 600 words+. My longest product reviews are 1000 words. My shorter ones are around 600 words.

2) You can go either way. For beginners starting out I usually recommend putting together a mini-site targeting one product. These require less work and are a good way to get the ball rolling. However, some people are saying that mini-sites are dead. In an article on my personal blog (joesaffilaitemarketingguide.com), I reveal that there are strategic ways to go about mini-sites to make them profitable. Check out the article for more info.

3) Yes, these are the techniques used for writing a review article.
