If you already visited Amazon, CNET or any other popular consumer website, you may already know what is a review. What I want to demonstrate here is the two kind of reviews on the Internet and how you can earn money from them.
These websites have the most traffic on the Internet because people always need to see what others have to say before they make a buying decision.
Remember the last time you bought something (online or offline), I’m almost sure you searched for someone else advice. Whether it’ a friend or the salesman itself, you had to speak with someone to find out is the product was really made for you.
It happens the same way online. Whenever people come to a website that sells something, they have objections. They need to trust the product or service they are going to buy.
For this, they will read reviews of the products before they make their final purchase decision.
There are two kind of reviews on the Internet.
The first is a review made by the website owner. Basically, someone created a website, and added a link to a product he is reviewing for his reader. Visit Sellers Playbook Amazon Reviews for more details.
Most of the time, the website owner does this for a profit. I mean that if you read the review on his website, then you click on his link and buy something, he will earn a percentage (commission) of the sales amount.
This is called affiliate marketing.
The problem with this kind of review is that sometime, the marketer will not tell the truth because his motivation is money, and not the end result for the website visitor.
Unfortunately, this happens all the time.
Don’t get me wrong, this only represent a very small percentage of the webmasters who review products online.
The second type of reviews is called user generated reviews.
This type is the best because it’s not the webmaster who is reviewing the products on the website but the consumer: you and others.
You are sure that real people used the product and therefore, you can trust the review and know more about the features and benefits of what you are going to buy.
GoodScience Articles, but how can you earn money from this as an affiliate marketer?
You need to mix the two to earn the maximum!
You set up a web 2.0 website with your affiliate links and just let people add the review on the site for you automatically.
