Writing Effective Affiliate Product Reviews

When it comes to writing effective affiliate product reviews there are a few things you have to remember when beginning the writing process, firstly:

Do your research

Researching a topic, or a product or service will make it appear like you are knowledgable about it, so in the case of a service or product it might be something you personally endorse or have purchased, so you could offer some valuable user experience information in the form of a review very easily.

If you know a subject very well you may think there is no need to do any research but I have since found out you can find lots more unique angles of information if you research thoroughly and most certainly there are things that you may have missed out on, so it is definitely worth taking time out to research topics.

Search through Google or specific sites like and Wordpress for some articles relating to your niche. The Google Toolbar comes in quite handy for doing focused research, with the toolbar you can search news sites, blogger blogs and scholar content search.

Targeting Problem Solutions

As mentioned in a recent post, nailing down specific questions and problems in your niche is the key to writing helpful affiliate product related articles and possibly writing some solutions for free to them problems helps others out.

In the case of affiliate product reviews though, people want to know further information to a service or product that they cannot find elsewhere to make a buying decision, they want to know specifics such as:

- What can this product do for me?
- What are the benefits?
- Will this solve the problems I have been facing?
- Is this worth my time and money?

By focusing on what the customer wants and needs you can position your affiliate product reviews as very useful articles indeed, becasue if you aswer most of the questions that relate to that prouct them they have satisfied their decision to buy or not and so ultimately it is out of your hands at that stage, but a good product review usually if written right will generally work out quite positive in your affiliate campaigns.

Creating Affiliate Niche Articles

Something that I am a huge fan of is creating affiliate niche articles and these are exactly what they are described as, it s basically a set or collection of niche focused articles that relate to one type of product or service, and they include valuable review information, problem solving content, conversational but accurate information and all manner of specific information that people might need to know about a product or service.

Why collect these articles together?

Well, if you have a huge volume of information about a specific affiliate product or service it makes sense to break up the different problem statements in separate articles and interlink these to create a valuable mini infrastructure of great content that people could read for free(free works best!) in the form of a report if you wish, but since we are on about articles, it is best to consider a few content publishing sites for your unique information.

Squidoo and Hubpages work well for this type of niche article promotion, but there are others if you can find them like Launchtags or even Blogger or Wordpress, anywhere where it doesn't restrict you from adding affiliate links and jolly good article content.

Information that works well is when you start off with one article, then you create another article that is related to the subject of the first article, and you add the link at the bottom for further reading and then you repeat this with another 10, 20, 30 or however, many articles you need to explain important information. Articles that are linked to one after the other creates direction for your readers all you have to do is let your readers find the part at the end where it says something like read on for further valuable content.

Identfiying problems that people have in the niche you write about is the key to writing effective affiliate niche articles, so for example if your affiliate niche was online business start ups, then you need to find out what are the biggest problems to setting up a business online that people are facing, you do this in forums or through your email list if you have one, also it could be worth doing a quick search on Google for problems because quite often you might find specific forum posts that have been indexed with people asking about a problem.

Only then when you have a good list of questions and problems you start to craft your articles together with a sprinkling of a few targeted affiliate products, but I recommend choosing one to really focus on something, because you don't want to offer multiple options unless the content demands it, so for another example in the online business start ups you could either choose to link to a specific affiliate that helps you start up an online business, or just each of the individual steps like web host affiliates, domain name affiliates, auto responder affiliate etc. If you do the latter suggestion it is worth limiting each affiliate link promotion to one article so you can focus on that one alone.
