What to write on first

15 replies
Should I write "best" articles on a specific product category or should I write reviews on those products first? because I was thinking since a review goes more in-depth I could take the information from the reviews I written and then create "best articles" on those products. Also how much articles should I write before starting my site I also plan to post a new article every day or two.

    You can start your website right away, then add your articles over time. Just promote your site when you have sufficient content. If you are doing a WordPress blog, you will eventually know which posts get a lot of attention. You then promote that post to the top of the list, or build your best articles around those posts.

    As much as you need, and if you're going to post a new article everyday or two... then you should be in good shape. Are you using a blog, or your own custom designed website?

    Me personally when I started my current site I had already over 500 articles written. I'm good at it, and they do ALOT in terms of building credibility and getting more sales. Good luck.

    If you are going to write reviews, make sure its a comparison between more than 1 product. Your article will be more valuable if you can shows the pros and cons from one product to another.
    hope this helps

    Why not start your site and start writing articles also?

    You should start by writing the best articles about the product followed by product reviews,

    Write as often as you can.

    First,

    Write what most Warriors don't have.
    Write your PLAN.

    You want to jump in but don't know why or how.

    Take some time and first write out what you are doing, this eliminates the need to
    ask insipid questions about your life/business.

    You have to start writing about the product first. Give them an overview on what's it al about. Gather necessary facts about it. Don't put too much words just as much as you explain it clearly.

    I would suggest that you should first write enough about the products. as in their intro and specifics then once you have an appropriate amount like suggested above by many you can start on with the web as well.

    why bother? are you looking for free traffic?

    Do you think your best review is going to beat out all the other best reviews for the product you've chosen?

    Not saying you can't make it but two posts a day. how long before you become burnt out?

    Are these quality posts? the 1000 word value dense kind...

    you've chosen a difficult road, not only that,,, a crowded road..

    Best of luck,

    Hi,

    Reviews first, but I wanted to make sure: you're using every product you review, right?

    If so, awesome. Big credibility builder. But I'd also connect with leaders in the niche and create helpful posts discussing the niche to gain trust. Because there are so many review sites out there that the few bloggers who rock it out have shared massive value and have connected themselves to huge friend networks to succeed.

    When you do publish reviews be open, honest and frank. Keep your word.

    Going this route boosts your credibility and can make you stand out from the crowd even a bit more.

    But keep in mind that your posts should be 1000 to 2000 word or more thorough, targeted, helpful masterpieces to grab wandering attention spans. "Best" type posts are spammy 99 out of 100 times because the bloggers who offer the advice haven't been around the block for more than 1 or even 5 years. Tough to take those types of posts seriously unless a famous, well-known, trusted authority writes them.

    Just focus on doing thorough, soup to nuts, in-depth, SEO-optimized reviews. Focus 95% of your energies to helping potential customers of these products and think about any sales or profit outcomes with the other 5% of your energies.

    When you focus heavily on giving vs getting, the getting becomes easier and easier because you helped in such a thorough, authentic way.

    Write on what your top competitors are focused on BUT...

    add a twist

    A little bit of personality goes a long way!

    Why do things this way?

    First, by writing on the hot topics in your niche, you're writing on topics that have PROVEN DEMAND (measured by backlinks and social signals)

    Second, by adding your distinct twist, you build a BRAND

    Re: "adding your distinct twist, you build a BRAND"

    yes, great idea, and if it flows naturally even better

    I would just start writing, whatever pops to my mind, reviews, in-depth, curiosity articles
    to raise awareness, product slashing to show you're not a stupid guy that buys everything
    and not one of the affiliates that recommend everything as people really hate those.

    You really should learn to go out and see what others are doing and where their success is at. Just asking and not qualifying people first is setting up for a hard time.

    Do what the successful people do. It's doing what unsuccessful people won't do. Setting goals and plans and developing a marketing strategy....

    Second the plan building idea -- this means writing out article titles ; at least 25 of them. Then determining how you will promote each one. A mind map may help with the planning element.

    Second the branding idea - this insures that people will pay attention to you. Keep your brand unique and uplifting.

    When I build a blog I write a ton of postings in my files. For every 5 product reviews I create a chart of feature comparing each of those products. Each title on the chart links to the product review.

    It builds a kind of ring around the rosy effect within the website.
