L ook, before you review a product, its better to use the product yourself and then share your experience in the form of review. Many newbie marketers make this mistake, they just select the product, fetch the affiliate links and review the product blindly!

  • Before you end your review, compare your product with the alternatives; that exist. Show your readers how this product is better than its alternatives.

After you completed the writing process, its time to end with a CTA (Call to Action). CTA is a button/image linking towards the product page where the reader would go to buy the product. CTA simply forces the readers to sign up or purchase the product!
