New Products Going To be Tested In Near Future.

I have been contacted by the companies that I have done product reviews for in the past, asking me to test more products for them and post the reviews once I have completely tested the products fully. I should receive these products within the next week and start testing them over the next couple of days that follow.
The way I do my product reviews is as follows, first of all I always keep any correspondence from the company- any e-mails between the two of us. You never know if you may need them in the future for some reason for example I had one person from a company that I won’t name contact me and ask me to rate a video as “helpful or higher” on amazon.com. I in no uncertain terms, but politely explained to this person that I would NOT do this, Ever!, I only do 100% honest evaluations, and if my being a member of this panel rode on doing this evaluation then I couldn’t be a member of this panel because this wasn’t a true and honest evaluation. I got a e-mail from the president of the company the next day apologizing to me. That the former person was no longer doing product testing, that the new person knew the rules of what it took to do a proper evaluation and would never ask anyone for that type of evaluation of a product again, and if they did he wanted to know immediately. These are the types of CEOs’ and Presidents of companies we need, not ones that are looking for the dishonest way.

Once I receive an e-mail from the company asking me to do the product test, I make a note in my notebook about when they contacted me about the product, what it is and when it is shipped. When I get it I also write down the date, that way I know how long I have been testing it, exactly. Some products you only have to test for a couple of days, some longer. When you feel you have a good grasp of the product, what it is about, start writing. Think about it like you would be trying to describe it for your best friend or someone like that. Once you are able to really get a good description then write it down and see how it looks. Read it outloud to your self and see how it sounds, if it sounds good then you are ready to post it once you have checked it for typos! There is nothing worse than reading someones review and seeing bad spelling. You really wonder then if they know very much about what they are doing if they cannot be bothered to even check their spelling. The more you do the better you get.

Once you get really comfortable with doing your product reviews you can try doing video reviews, some people are more at ease with video than written. However if you submit a video review most sites have to have a written one as well. Just read other reviews and see how your views measured up to those already done by others done around the same time as yours, you don’t want to go back too far because they may have a different version of the item especially if you are dealing with electronics. I have found that sometimes my reviews have been very close to others and at other times my experience wasn’t like anyone else, so you never know.
So Product testing is enjoyable and you end up with a product to keep in the end.The company ends up with good information for their research on that product, a win-win for everyone.

  2. Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if
    you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    1. Hello,
      If you use this wordpess site (the free one) it is super simple, and there is no coding except when you add a button to your sidebar, and if you do that they tell where and how to do it. This site is the best in my opinion for anyone starting out. You can design your page the way yo’u it to look like (within reason, if you want to get really fancy and go high tech then you can pay for more options, that just was not a option for me). When I started this blog i really wasn’t too sure it was something I was going to stick with.(I had thought about doing one in the past for various things, and didn’t. When I was approached about doing this one I honestly didn’t think I would continue to get products, but companies have approached me and asked me if I would please review their products.) So I am happy. I am just trying to build up my readership now. Every little bit helps.
      Thanks for reading and responding. If you have any more questions or comments let me know I will try and help as much as I can.

      Have a wonderful day!

I am honest, 100% and if they cannot handle that then they need to find another person to work with. So far none of them have. So keep reading,please and tell others. I need to get as many people reading my site as Is can so I can get the good products. Thanks so much.

    1. Hello,
      You have come to the right place, not necessarily me but wordpress.There are other sites but with them you have to do coding, or you have to pay for things and so on. On wordpress there are 2 sites a free one and a paid site, when you are just starting out in my opinion why pay for a site when you are not sure exactly what you want from the site, or an at what you want to do, or even if you are going to stick with it. With the free wordpress site there is still a lot of customization with it. You get to decide how you want it to look, the set up and quite a lot of other things,or you can do very little and allow them to set it up so you can do your first blog, and change it later. It has a photo option, where you can attach photos easily. It also will keep up with your analytics but I signed up with google++ (actually if you sign up with all of the social media sites it will post all of them when your blog goes live, including google++, linkedin, pinterest, facebook, instagram, twitter and so on).
      So just go through the set up and make sure you read through each option so you know what you are doing, you can always go back and change things but finding where it is listed under and how it changed sometimes is a little challenging. Good luck. If there is anything I can do to help let me know.
      Keep on reading my blog.Thanks so much.

    1. Hello,
      Thank you. My writing style is inherently my own, good or bad 🙂 My english teachers in school were not as complementary. When I got to college the papers I had to write did get better (as far as the grades went, so I guess they decided my writing wasn’t as bad high school teachers made them out to be. I have always enjoyed writing, to me if you are honest and give your reader the information to you want them to have in the first few sentences then usually you have a good article.In most cases there is not a reason to use a bunch of big flowery words when simple ones that describe exactly what you want are the best.
      Thanks so much for reading my blog, please keep on reading. If you have others that you may know that would enjoy it please let them know about it as well.

    1. Hello,
      For me I am a busy mom of 4 all under the age of 13. So when it comes to writing it is a release for me. I do mine differently than a lot of others do, I start my reviews written by hand on a legal pad that way I can make revisions easily. I am not staring at a blank either screen that way either. For me that helps. Sometimes I write and go back and read it and then rip it out and start over again. I always have the product in front of me, the instructions from the product, and any information I can get about the product as well. That way when I need to refer to any of it I don’t have to go looking for it and waste time.For me all of this saves me time and helps me get started writing. Good luck, and keep on reading my blog as well.

    1. Hi, yes I do use wordpress. I started my blog in October.It was super easy too. They just walk you through all of the steps, you choose the style, format, everything. There is no coding, thankfully! Plus there is no need to pay for using the wordpress site (they have 2- one free and one paid, get the free one to start off until you are sure what you want to do) Once you get it going and get your following then you can always change it over to the paid site later. That is my best advice.Thanks so much for even asking.Keep on reading!

      I think it may be on your end. The reason I say that is because I don’t have any problem getting it to load from any device I try, and your e-mail is the first time (except for one person who had trouble on their smartphone, but I wasn’t able to help them because I don’t use a smartphone).I am sorry you are having trouble, I hope you can fix it and that way you can see everything.I am sorry I am not able to help though.

    1. That is great question. One that so far I have not been faced with, so far anyway. I hope I never am.On my end, I always make sure everything I write is truly my own thoughts and feeling when it comes to a product. Since I am giving my unbiased review of the product I always make sure It is exactly how I feel. I don’t let any company tell me how I should feel about a product, and sometimes it will happen.
      I received an e-mail one time from a rep. from a company that I had been doing product reviews for quite a while, a large company. (I won’t name the company) The rep asked me to a product review for a product that I never received from them.She knew they had never sent the product to me, that to me is dishonest. I told her so.I figured I would no longer be doing product reviews for that company because I didn’t do this. The next day in my inbox was an e-mail from the president of the company, they had fired that rep for doing what she did, and he wanted to thank me for being so honest. He also wanted to let me know he get every e-mail that goes to his company, no matter who it is addressed to but that I could contact him at anytime for anything concerning his company. I so appreciated that. I also not to take advan eitherattage of something like that either. You never know when it may come in handy in the future.
