I bough the product, a short 60 pages ebook about gardening to fits wonderfully to my "weed `n joint blog" (just kiddin :p and no, I'm not going to name it...) and after reading it I realize that all the 6 review sites That y check has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the ebook.
This makes me wonder how ethical is to review an ebook, training course, site or wathever, without having an honest first hand opinion?
I realize that there is no enough time to try and test every product that some people promote, but puting the template "Don't buy xxx before read my honest review..." come on guys! I know this phrases are catchy and converts well, but how about buy the product and give an actually "honest" opinion?
Is Ok to recommend a product that even you aren't sure what is about or if is good or not?
What if you put all your chips promoting a "Magic System to Make Money" as the big next thing to make money on internet, a blueprint to success, with all the hype, and turns out that is just an ebook about how to make money as a magician? And don't give me the speech that the sales letter tells all, because in many cases it doesn't tell anything at all. Specially in the IM niche.
I'd rather prefer to be the guy who buys a ton of IMO's and ebooks, read them (I spend about two hours a day reading) and then give a real and informed opinion about the product I choose to promote.
I guess that Build trust to your readers seems over rated for some marketers these days who focus only in make money. And is not that I blame them, because I'm in the same ship, I do want to make money as well but also I do want to know that I'm not fooling anyone recommending something that I have only a hunch is good judging by the sales letter or what other says.
