My Personal Amazon Review Site Blueprint - My Take

21 replies
Hi Warriors,

This morning I sent Tom (aka Wolfmmiii) an email about his "My Personal Amazon Review Site Blueprint" tutorial to let him know just how happy I was with the system. I'd like to share some of those thoughts with you, especially if you're not aware of Tom's products.

I've been on Warrior Forum for a couple of years now, mostly lurking. My little piece of the Web is affiliate marketing through Amazon. I've read, studied and bought a good share products and settled into comfortable routine of long reviews and promotions. It's working... slowly.

I started to take notice of Tom's comments here on the forum about Amazon marketing. I was intrigued, checked out his site and bought the "My Personal Amazon Review Site Blueprint" a month ago.

It's a simple, non-intimidating system that works. How well? This is what I told Tom this morning:

"I bought your "Blueprint" almost a month ago. I've been a little busy, so
I've only put up three reviews on Squidoo and just started as of the end of
last week adding to my own review site.

So far...


2 of the 3 Squidoo lenses converted to sales (one of them twice!)

I just checked my own site in SEO Rank Checker and 3 of 4 reviews are
sitting at #1."


I really am happy. This is the fastest I've ever sold anything and ranked so easily.

There are caveats, of course. There are some products this system won't work well for, even Tom says that. It takes a little common sense to vet the products and it's not a "do-a-little-work-and-you'll-be-a-millionaire" system (but we know those aren't true anyway).

It is, however, a system that I'm implementing and plan to work harder. It won't be my only system, but if it keeps working like it is right now, it'll be bigger part of my overall business plan.

If you haven't had a chance to get to know Tom, search him out here on the forum. He seems to be a pretty level-headed, straight-forward guy who has a lot to offer.

Thanks for reading.

    Thanks netlexis! I appreciate the kind words and vote of confidence. Such a simple strategy is very newbie friendly so I think that's why so many people are having success with it.

    Why spend hours and hours and hours doing manual backlinking when you can rank easily without doing so? It's so much more fun to build websites and promote affilaite products when you can focus on creating content instead of worrying about backlinks.

    I'm glad you are having success with it so keep me posted!

    Wolfmmiii , What can I say? I really want to thank you because before I knew anything about your product , I was for sure that it was so difficult to make money online. But then I began your Blueprint and I didn't even have all the add-ons just the basic stuff (although I will be purchasing soon).

    Long story short I began your Blueprint about two months ago, I took action and I made my first sale today. Now I know its possible to make money online. and I just thank you, seriously.

    I know this post is all over the place but I'm on cloud 9 right now and don't know when I'm coming down.

    Thanks again!

      I agree it's a pretty solid system.

      Tom, have you found out yet if the Amazon disclaimer is included with the theme that came with RSME?You were going to get back to me on that.

      Also once the post is published can I go back and edit it without using the plugin?

      Thanks.

    Hi Mark....

    I'm actually working with the themes today and will be checking them this afternoon. Yes, you can go back in and edit without the plugin.

    Mark...

    I just checked the Gadget download and yes, it does include the disclaimer in the footer. I didn't check the others but it's a safe bet that they include it as well since they were all taken from the same base code.

    The only issue I have with TOms process is, the reviews seem like they would be too short? What has been your experience?

    Also, I do perform keyword research because not everyone is searching for products using the EXACT model name and number. I found a good niche to enter into and just out of curiosity I did a search using the Google KW tool to see how many were looking for the product and many times "No Searches Were Found" was the response to my query. Now, that doesn't mean people are not searching for it but I'd rather see people searching than not.

    Having said that, I go for ultra easy to rank for keywords and as Tom advises, I only use only wire.

    But I'd like someone to chime in on whether a 500 word review is better than a 1200-1500 word review.

    I do a mix of shorter reviews like Tom suggest and longer ones. It really depends on the product and if it needs more information and what the potential buyer wants/expects. You shouldn't write long because you think it's better.

    My basic premise is that buyers have short attention spans. Yes, they want the information, but they don't want lots of text blocks. That's a sure turn off. Look at using headlines, bullets and even a few more pics with captions to get the message across.

    Hope that helps.

      Ok, cool, that makes sense.

      I've read 2 Amazon related ebooks and they both "preach" 1200 plus words reviews.

      Hard to write that much for a Kitchen Aid mixer. As you said, no one wants to read a book. They just want simple facts that helps them make a good buying purchase.


      Thanks

        Actually, Johnny, for a $400 KitchenAid Mixer, I would write a 1200 words and it would be easy to do. But I also make sure my copy has lots of white space so it doesn't read dense. Price as a determining factor for how much I write and again it comes down to what I think it will take to get that reader to push the buy button. Hopefully when a potential buyer lands on your site, he/she is primed to buy and it won't take much. The best I can tell you is try a method... test it... and if it doesn't work, then adjust and try again.

          People want more info on higher priced products, before they buy. That is OK, we also want it . And it also depends on which product it is. A brand new TV at $2,000 needs probably a 1,200 word review including specs, for a $150 lawn mover 200 - 400 words would be enough.

            Nope. A few hundred words is plenty.

              I hate posting to a thread that is almost 3 weeks old, but I had to chime in.

              If you are targeting the END or near the end of the buying cycle you don't need to have such a long review for your products.

                Bingo. That is 100% dead-on. Just give the person a warm and fuzzy and you'll get the conversions.

                  Hi wolfmmii, few days back someone purchased 3 same items from my amazon affiliate site, but, now the product which user ordered is giving Error 404, its been removed from Amazon. So, can you tell me whether I will get commission for it or not? All 3 products are worth $210 combined.

    I got Tom's, Erica's and Tyler's (the law student...not so sure) Amazon blueprint I think a month ago. I'm not done yet with the review site but hopefully, I get to see the same success as yours. I kind of followed Erica's review length recommendation but I used Tom's guide for KW and SEO.

    Even though their suggestions differ from each other, what's great is that they tell you their personal reason for doing so. Now, it's up to you who to follow. I like Tom's KW and especially the SEO sections since I can't spend hours backlinking each day.

    As long as those ordered items ship, you will be paid commissions on them.

      netlexis - How are you doing now with this method has the hard work paid off?

      wolfmmiii - With a domain name for example a fiction books review site would you go with fictionbooks.com or thebookreview.com do you think it makes mush of a difference? The more I am reading I am haring domain name is becoming less and less important.


      I am thinking of doing a case study with your strategy see how it goes.

        I don't like wither one of them to be honest (although thebookreview.com could work). You should name your site in the same manner that you'd name a brick/mortar store.

        BindersBooks.com
        TellMeAStory.com

        etc... You get the picture.
