Want To Write a Good Product Review? Here’s How

How to Write a Good Product Review


For anyone with a business and in these modern times, anyone with an online business needs promotional campaigns to increase the viewership of their products or services.


How to Write a Review Article


Promotional activity  can be planned by marketing agencies that are experts in their fields, and understand the product and the target audience before planning the strategy that will give the site the maximum mileage.

Another more cost effective way is for a company to have product reviews written. A well written product review can make all the difference to the site or to the product.

Someone reading a review takes it for granted that the reviewer has actually used the product or the service and this helps him to understand the product that he is considering using or buying.

Affiliate marketing through product reviews is conducted this way. There are some tips that are handy while writing a review for a product.

While one just needs good English skills and the ability to write a good article, it is important to remember that the article must be written in the first person. This helps the reader understand that the writer has had firsthand knowledge of the product, and is writing a review from his experience.

The writing style must deviate from stiffness and formality, and must be informative and friendly yet have substance.

The pros and cons of the service or the product must be carefully reviewed, as no one would believe that there is only positive in a product especially a new product.

By carefully balancing these two aspects one can then write a review that is believable, and when comparisons are made with similar products or those in the same category, or price range then a potential buyer is better able to understand what he gets with any particular product.


Some important tips that will see you through a good review:

checkmarkGreen Write simply and yet have content that has substance. Avoid frills and convoluted sentences. This would put off readers right in the beginning. Come to the point as soon as possible after all this is why the reader is checking out your review in the first place.

A product review is required for someone considering a serious purchase and the number of positive reviews or information on the product goes a long way when one needs to decide.

Keep the reader in mind while writing; think about what you would want to know if you were looking for reviews on that particular product.

checkmarkGreen Research the product carefully and cover all the points that are relevant.

Focusing on the usability of the product, its availability, cost effectiveness and customer service or technical support is very important and is the backbone of any good review.

A client needs to know that he will not be set adrift after purchasing something that promises after sales support, and that the company or site actually lives up to its promises. Read through other reviews and research the products carefully and search engines always give importance to well written articles.

checkmarkGreen Compare boldly and Weigh the Pros and Cons fairly. Write about only what is provided by the site or what the product actually does, nothing generic should be written.

A browser who is aware will see through this easily and will ditch the rest of the review or even the product. Don’t gush about the pros and don’t run the product down too much. Be balanced in your reviews and maintain a decent word length, too short and the reader will feel shortchanged and too long and he will be bored.

checkmarkGreen The negatives are real so don’t brush them aside. Acknowledge them and write about how the negative can be worked into being useful, and writing about one’s personal experience in dealing with the negative feature of the product helps to put the reader in the right perspective that the product has more good to offer than just negatives.

Many times the negatives don’t need to be a reason for not buying a product, especially when the positives outweigh the negatives. Always keep the reader in mind and write from that point of view. This will always help to keep the words flowing in the right manner.

checkmarkGreen Always remember to write about everything that the product offers. This will show the research and interest put into reviewing the product or service.

When the tangible and intangible points are covered, a reader gets a clearer view of the worthiness of the product in relation to its price and features.

List out its benefits, does it make a task simpler, does it save money or time, does it offer interesting features? Great benefits are a selling point so cover these subtly. If the results or popularity can be quantified then this adds to the credibility of the product as well as of the review.

It is important to mention the reason this product scores over the others and all this requires a balanced view, so find the time to note down all the points and then put them together in a well planned manner.

checkmarkGreen Re-reading reviews after intervals helps to be clear about the writing and prevents repetition. One can also get a fresh perspective when one returns to the review after a break.

Writing reviews is a responsible job, especially when your opinion matters to help someone make a decision so take on the responsibility and believe in what you are promoting.

    So well written Gera. Everything is covered so well. This is a great resource! Have a great week my friend.


      You too Deeba!


    Great tips. I love getting products to review but feel obligated to only write the good stuff. I scuff in a little bit of the things I didn’t like, if any, but mostly focus on the good. But your tips make a lot of sense especially keeping in mind what I would want to know about the product.


    Thanks Jane. Totally with you, build trust is fundamental and if there are cons is better to show them.


    This a very good, thorough post. Product reviews are very necessary and their readers put a lot of trust in the product of a well-written review

    Thanks Wade. If there are some cons that not affect the whole product, exposing them increase significantly the value of the review.
