    Here are 5 tips to write Paid Reviews:

    Know product details

    The first thing to know before writing paid review is the product, company, their terms and conditions etc. All these things give you brief idea about the review which you will be writing on your blog. Read reviews about that product and if possible give that product a try, this will make you sure that you are selecting a right product for writing review.

    If it’s a software, the best way to write review is by downloading it and trying it yourself. This way, you can know about possible advantage and problem with the software. When you are writing a review, make sure you do mention pros and cons of a software. Else, despite of writing an amazing review you will lose on trust part.

    Confidence

    Accept the paid reviews only after you are confident about the product. There is no point in selling the product which is not worth or not useful for your readers. Trust is the most important part of blogging, single bad suggestion to your readers might result in losing your readers and followers. If you are confident that the product is useful, you will surely write a killer paid review.

    Useful for your readers

    Blogging is not only about making money online, it is more for sharing the information useful for your readers. Thus, while writing paid reviews make sure that you write for readers not only for money. Like if you have a technology blog, accept reviews about useful websites, gadgets or technical services rather than going for garments or any other relevant products.

    Include your opinions

    Many bloggers generally copy the contents and features from the product website and write reviews about same. But if you want to write paid reviews effectively, you need to give your opinion about the product rather than copying from other’s blog. If you think that product has few disadvantages, write it in your review. After all, review is all about sharing true opinion.

    Involve Readers

    When you are writing a paid review make sure you don’t write a typical review which starts with features and ends up with same. Your paid review must be interactive with your readers. Don’t just finish the review with your views, ask your readers to provide useful feedback. Your readers would surely show interest while commenting if you keep an open end in your reviews.

    Add Stars in Search rating:

    Reviews are very useful for getting traffic from search engine and with new schema data, you can add rate the software, tool product you are reviewing and you can show it in star. Below is an example of one of the review article from our blog, where we have shown star rating:

    knowing the product rightly is very important…if you are recommending something to your visitors, it is a must that you know yourself how you can use them….

    Agree with you Tushar, it’s not good to recommend the products which are not worth using.

    Thanks or the article as I plan to do paid reviews in the future. I had not considered asking the reader for their inputs. I will start doing this in my free reviews and in the future my paid reviews.

    Hi Ruchi, this is quite useful and informative post. Now, I used to do a lot of paid reviews in the past, especially when I was quite new to this blogging thing. But I stopped doing it soon as I was fed up of writing in the same tone and also, I was never able to make better money with all these. The payment remained same for each review and it never increased. So, I finally had to give up. Anyways, still no such harm in writing those reviews. I think it is a good way to find some useful content for you blog plus you get paid too :)

    Spot on! I rejected a few reviews because I wasn’t confident about the products they were offering. I think it’s better to reject them rather than writing dishonest reviews just for the sake of money

    and yeah, throwing in your own opinion to improve their products is good too, as long as you are not using harsh comments

    Agree with you Michael, Giving opinion is only good when you are don’t use harsh comments, may be the things which we don’t like in the product might be useful for other.
