Product Review Blogging
If your blog is about a topic that lends itself to product reviews, then you can ask businesses to send you free products to review on your blog. Of course, you can purchase products and then publish reviews on your blog, but getting free products is always nice!
Before you start asking for free products to review on your blog, take the time to publish a lot of great content on your blog and to increase traffic to your blog. The likelihood that a business will consider sending you free products to review depends on how much exposure your blog can give to its products and brands.
Purchase and test some products that your blog audience is likely to be interested in. Many businesses will look for these posts on your blog before they’ll consider sending you free products to review. Create a category and use tags or labels to identify product review posts, so it’s easy for visitors and businesses to find them. When you request free products from a business, you’ll need to be able to prove that you publish well-written reviews.
Gather data about your blog’s traffic because this what you need to convince the manufacturers that you have enough traffic to give them sizable sales. Be sure to explain how soon you can write a review post after receiving free products. Many businesses send free products out to bloggers for review, but the blogger doesn’t have time to test the product, write the review, and publish it for weeks or months. Stating up front that you can turn around a product review post within a specific time frame is something many businesses will be happy to hear. Personalize your request for free products with well-written business tone and you’ll be surprised how many products will be mailed in through your door.
The most important factor behind being a product reviewer is that you need to have focused and laser target crowd that are willing to react to what you have to say about a product.
