Don't forget that you can always leverage OTHER reviews to write your own reviews! You can read them, then report back on what the general consensus.

"[Product Name] has over 400 reviews on Amazon and received a rating of about 4.5 stars. That's an amazing feat for ANY product!"

"More than one forum had a few complaints from folks saying that customer support was a common issue with [Product Name]"

You can also take screenshots of specific parts of reviews. DO NOT copy/paste content onto your own blog, or screenshot large portions of someone else's review! It's not helpful, and might be copyright infringement. What you can do is screenshot a portion of the review that you find interesting and add commentary on it.

Pro Tip: The above screenshot is a tiny portion of a 1200 word review, and the highlight was added by ME. By taking a small piece of something, changing it, and adding commentary, you make it your own. In addition to this, I would have to write a review that was completely original, and not just a "spun" copy of this other guy's review.

That is the difference between copying someone's content to try to drive traffic to your site, and leveraging other reviews to enhance your own.

NOTE: Amazon doesn't allow this, and doing screenshots of reviews on Amazon will get your account banned if they find you doing this. Just summarize what you read on Amazon reviews if you find anything worth mentioning.

Hi Nathaniel,

Read this through Eddy's (w/a Y) link to your post. Great post indeed. I've learned so much, gave me also the confidence to write a review. I can't go on with my lesson at Bootcamp because I was having doubts if I will be credible enough to write a review but I guess with enough knowledge about a product it is possible.

Thank you very much. You are awesome.

Kind regards,
Arline :)

Thank you for the great information on how to write the review. I am always struggling to do it as I feel I am not honest enough to write a review that I don't own. This instruction is really great that I will use it the next time I write the review!

there is a lot to absorb, I find myself somewhat over helmed at times and revisiting previous lessons and tangent blogs and reading the messages from the discussion, it is a lot of info to download and process. However I am a great more knowledgeable than I was prior to joining WA. Thanx

This is wonderful. I will be referring to it often, as this has been an ongoing concern for me.I have avoided discussing or reviewing things that I don't have personal experience with for fear of coming across in a a fraudulent manner. Other members here have commented that it's fine to do so with some research, but I particularly like the way you have presented everything here.

Thank you so much for your refreshing advice. In turn, thank goodness I have aquired the technical, research, writing, discussion board and forum skills through attending Colorado Technical University (CTU) earning an Associate's of Science in Health Administration Services (ASHAS). Therefore, joining Wealthy Affiliate is right up my alley, understands, and agrees there is a lot of fun work still ahead to learn and do as a newbie.
