Successful review blogging takes time – are you prepared?

Review blogging can be both challenging and difficult if you are not prepared. You see – unless you are able to turn your blog into a go to place for information on your topic, you will struggle. To attract readers to your reviews they must think of your blog as an authority site. And usually an authority site has been around a good while, which is simply something you need to build for.

The best way to create an authority site is to concentrate on one niche and focus on reviewing products and services that will help your readers solve their problems. Just make sure that your abilities to keep the blog up to date and relevant matches what your readers expect from you.

But no matter how much you think you know about your niche, chances are you could use some brushing up on the topic. You should spend some time each day reading articles, blog and forum posts, ebooks etc. They will give you an idea of what is popular in your niche, and what is not. And of course – don’t forget to check out your competitor’s blogs.

Review blogging is personal

Let’s say you are thinking about doing a blog about horse racing, because you have found an affiliate product that would make a nice commission on each sale. But you have no real interest in horse racing and no time to watch horse races. Then review blogging on this subject make no sense.

Instead – you should choose a niche you already know something about and have gained some personal experiences from. You could find a niche topic in a specific industry or field you have work experience from, or a hobby, or an illnesses, or sports.

  • It will be easier to find products and services that would benefit your readers if you already have some knowledge about the niche. As a matter of fact – you should only review products or services you know have a high perceived value to your readers.
  • It will be easier to position yourself as an expert when you have personal knowledge and experiences within the niche. Never “fake” or force anything – your readers will know and your reputation will suffer.
  • Your reviews will be more credible if you base your reviews on personal experiences. And be honest in your reviews. That is – include bad experiences if there are some. This will add to your credibility.

To sum it up – the most crucial element to successful review blogging is the mix between you and the product. And nothing makes you more believeable than having actually used and tested the product.
