How To Get Paid To Write Reviews For Products (Affiliate Marketing)
I am about to tell you exactly what you need to know in order to get started with reviewing products so if you are interested in learning how to make money online reviewing products then you probably want to keep reading this to the end because I will tell you.
Now, there are many ways to make money online but publishing product reviews is probably the most passive way to earn money online in the long run because once you have started to make money, it will continue passively for years to come.
Your reviews can earn you money for as long as the product is available to buy.
I am talking about affiliate marketing and creating reviews for affiliate products. And getting paid through affiliate programs.
If you don’t know what affiliate marketing is, it is when you sell other people’s products for a commission. The commission varies but some pay 75% or even more which means that if you review a product and it sells for $100, you make $75 per referred customer.
The beauty of affiliate marketing is that it is completely free to sign up to affiliate programs and you can make money without having to have your own products to promote so there are no costs involved!
You don’t personally have to deal with refunds or anything like that.
You just promote the product and collect the commission for each referred customer.
So you can earn money online reviewing products by putting your “affiliate link” inside your review content. And if the visitor clicks on your link to go to the sales page and end up purchasing the product you reviewed, you get credited for referring the customer and you get paid.
Or if a person visits the sales page but ends up clicking away without buying, there will be a tracking cookie left.
If they come back later on and purchase, you get the commission!
The cookie can stay for weeks depending on the affiliate program you are working with.
If this is something you would want to do then there are countless affiliate programs to choose from.
All you have to do is figure out the “niche” you would like to work with and create review content about.
And then go to google and type NICHE + “affiliate program” and you will find something to work with.
Here are my top 5 affiliate network recommendations that have tons of products in any niche to promote.
5 affiliate programs you can join to get paid to write product reviews.
It is completely free to sign up with any of these and you will have more than enough products to review and promote.
Now that we have talked about how and where to find products to review for a high commission, let’s talk about how and where to work this method correctly.
If you are going to make money online reviewing products, you need to create review content. you need a place to publish your content so that people can find your reviews and end up buying from you.
I personally write product review articles myself or pay someone to do them for me, which you also can do. But you can also make product reviews in video format and publish them on youtube. A lot of people do that these days and it can be very profitable.
If you want to write reviews yourself then that is great!
But if you don’t want to then you can buy articles for a few dollars at places like iwriter.com and hirewriters.com.
If you want to make video reviews for places like youtube then that is fine. All you need is a YouTube channel that you get for free with a google account.
Where to get paid reviewing products?
I personally recommend that you get your own domain name and good hosting and that you create review articles and publish them on your own site. Over time it will become an asset for you if you build it up with lots of product reviews. And it can make you a lot of money. But since you OWN your own site and all the content you put on it, you can sell it down the line if you don’t want it anymore. And you can make a lot of money.
But you can not sell a youtube channel.
If you don’t have your own website then I recommend the hosting that I use myself. I use siteground which has great and fast hosting and you can install WordPress with just a click.
(You can read my Siteground Review and find out more right here).
WordPress is very easy to use for beginners so you can have a blog set up in minutes literally.
If you want to review products on a blog but you can’t afford to host then you can use a free blog but it has its limits. You get way more options with good hosting and you can’t sell a free blog in the future. But if you don’t have any money to get good hosting then you can use blogger.com for a free and good looking blog where you can publish your product reviews.
Okey. so now, you know where to find products to Review. You know where to publish your product reviews to make money. You know that you can make articles or video reviews.
Let’s talk about how to make the reviews and create an affiliate link.
How to Write Product Reviews that sell for affiliates.
When you write the product review there are a few things to keep in mind.
The purpose is to convert the readers into sales but you are writing reviews so you don’t want them to feel that way when they read your content. So the trick is to pre-sell the product.
so have a soft, optimistic vibe about the product but be quick to mention any drawbacks or flaws in your review. And then say something good about it that balances it out. That way they feel more trust when you recommend that they buy it, and you provide them with a link.
If it is possible, provide them with a bonus product if they buy it from you. Clickbank and Jvzoo often have resources for affiliates where they give away bonuses that you can use to entice people to buy. So look for bonuses to offer.
when it comes to writing the actual review, a good structure to follow is the following:
Title: PRODUCT NAME REVIEW: IS THIS THE RIGHT FOR YOU?
Body of the article.
(Relate to the reader).
If you are shopping around for a good weight loss course and you find it hard to choose then I know the feeling! I’ve been there.
I have researched dozens of different programs and I was amazed at how much garbage that´s actually out there. I had to read through a lot Before I found this PRODUCT. (And so on)
tell them what the product is about and what they get.
Let them know the price.
tell them who you recommend it to.
Present it as a solution to their problem and recommend it and provide them with your affiliate link.
The reviews should be over 600 words in length, and it will increase your chances of ranking on Google and getting search traffic. That is the highest converting form of visitors because they come to buy.
Now, if you have signed up with Clickbank then you can head over to the “marketplace” find a product there to promote.
Once you find something that you like you will see a text next to the title of the product and it says “hop link” when you click it you get your affiliate link.
It is different on other platforms but not much. You can find out more about it there, or google it.
If you create video reviews then place your affiliate link in the description box of your YouTube video and recommend that people check out the link in your description.
And that is basically how to make money online by reviewing products but here is a caveat –
Success will not happen overnight!
The more product reviews you produce, the more money you will make so it is good to publish them daily. Or at least a few times per week.
if you do that then you will have lots of different products to make money from in a few months and your blog will become stronger and stronger over time.
What will happen is that you start to rank higher and higher on the search results for different product names and reviews.
The fantastic thing about this method is that you build up a passive income for yourself with time and you can stop writing and continue to make money because the product reviews that you write this week can make you sales 2 years from now also!
All you need is your own blog or a YouTube channel. Your affiliate program of choice and the motivation and drive to create reviews regularly.
That is it for this time. Now go out there and make money online reviewing products!
