Properly researching products

7 replies
I have a source for product links, but I am not 100% sure about the proper research for good information about products.

    The best way to research a product is to actually have it in
    your possession. Anything else is simply speculating.

      I cannot afford to buy every product I wish to promote. I was thinking of searching on Amazon for the product, searching DuckDuckGo, finding reviews, etc. Then writing posts based on all that information.

        You could do that, but you've already said you don't know how to find good information. If you don't bring any experience of owning or using a product, and if all you're doing is repeating reviews you find online, ask yourself why anyone would be inspired to follow your recommendations.

        How many products do you plan to promote?
        Why not start with ONE. That's a good start.
        Can you get your hands on one product?
        When you start making money you could
        parlay that into more items to review.

        Or you could do like the majority of the lame
        youtube reviewers who order the thing, make
        videos unboxing and reviewing it, and then
        send it back since they are too broke to
        actually buy the thing.

        If you think it's a good idea to read Amazon
        reviews about the products, and write your
        own reviews based upon that, then go for it.
        You should do whatever works for you.

          Videos and stuff sounds like a good idea. I'm not so much looking for reviews, as just more information about the product usage, experienced information as to why the consumer may want to use the product. It's not so much important to have used the product, but the biggest rule in sales is "know your product". That way I can write "articles" about the product and why the consumer should want it. Sort of like turning in-person direct selling into an article that convinces the consumer instead.

    Google the product name and research the info on it that way. Videos and articles, outline the benefits etc. and go from there.

    Let us know how that works out for you.

    That's called 'copywriting'.

    Due to the current pandemic I will no longer be shaking hands or giving hugs. You may wave, bow to me or give me the finger...your choice.
