My very first website was setup to house as many affiliate products as possible – it’s kinda shameful to admit…but it’s the truth!
Mind you, back in those days affiliate marketers had it pretty easy – Google was nowhere near as smart as it is now and black hat marketing was as natural as breathing air.
As you know…things have changed.
Thankfully, over the years I’ve learned that constantly being ‘on the sell’ is NOT the way to go, but being an affiliate is still an option.
Regulars to this site will know that I promote the online university where I learned my trade – Wealthy Affiliate (yes that link leads to a product review!!!).
That is just about the only affiliate offer I showcase on this site…because it is the only one I believe in 100%.
In this article we will be looking at a tutorial that will teach you the correct way on how to write great product reviews. Once again it’s a FREE webinar from the internet marketing maestro Jay, and once again it’s from the awesome Wealthy Affiliate education community…

How to Write a Good Product Review
What makes people purchase products?
There is a delicate art to creating and penning convincing reviews on a website without sounding like you’re selling a used car salesman.
By following some simple strategies, your reviews can dramatically be more effective and ultimately increase your sales…
How to Write a Great Review
Let’s summarise the path an individual travels when he/she is looking to purchase a product online…
#1 Type the product name into Google along with the golden word ‘review’.
#2 Sit back and watch a tidal wave of results hit you. Unfortunately, most of these reviews sound the same! (‘Don’t Buy ___ Until You Read This Review’, ‘_____ Scam, ‘The Truth Behind ___’).
#3 Desperately make your way through each result title until you find one that doesn’t sound like complete clickbait BS.
#4 Eventually land up on a page that gives the product a glowing review from start to finish – no cons, only pros! (i.e. more complete BS).
#5 Give up on the whole idea because you cannot find a truthful word about your product choice online.
These kinds of review rank and rank well…but they seldom work these days. Internet users are now fully aware when they are being led up the garden path.
The truth is, most people are now fairly well informed about dodgy affiliate sites selling this way and while you can STILL make sales this way, you won’t bank the way you used to.
So where does that leave us?
Well, for starters, it leaves us with a pretty awesome opportunity to become the ‘honest guy’ and stand out from all the sh#t that’s already floating about out there!
The ‘honest guy’ will not be the author of a review that bangs on about the product’s features – these can be found on any old Amazon page at the end of the day.
The ‘honest guy’ will make an attempt to empathize with their readers – they’ll try their best to actually solve their problems.
