I have come to realize that the Product review niche is one of the Best Blogging niches which you can make either micro or even extra large and yet still come out successful.
I usually talk about review Niche because i do recommend it for those who want to start blogging especially on “Make money online niche”
and other related but the fact that most people don’t understand this blogging style is making them fail and coming back with words like “i don’t like that niche” i just laugh it away.
Believe me: Wither you found a Blogging niche which no one has ventured without technical know-how you will still fail even when you have little or not even one competitor.
and this is the major reason why many still fail in any blogging niche they venture irrespective of the competition volume.
Before I continue with this short but interesting article have you checked out my recommendations on Best Blog Niches That Makes More Money in 2020 (you can read that later)
For those who don’t understand, let me use this opportunity to explain the meaning of product Review blogging niche for easy comprehension.
Understanding the Product Review Blogging Niche
Let assume you have understood from my previous niche related blog posts, that a niche simply means the area of blogging you would want to focus your articles e.g How to Start a Blog In Nigeria.
for blogging tips and make money online related articles, writersincharge.com for writing-related tips and tricks etc
What about the product review niche how does it really look like? am sure You gat that same question right.?.
A product Review Niche; simply a blogging niche where the author discusses in details about trending products, How to use them, which one to use and which ones to avoid.
The products you’re gonna review can be physical or digital provided it’s something others would want to learn in details about.
Very Few examples of product Review Niches are listed below.
- wolfsgamingblog.com: a typical game review blog where everything written therein is game related.
- GSMarena.com: A typical mobile review blog where everything written therein is Mobile related.
- Appadvice.com: Typical Mobile apps review blog where everything written therein is app related.
I now believe you understand exactly how a review blog looks. the issue on the ground now should be how to start a product review blog that pays. just relax as we go further.
Understanding The review blogging Niche in Two Dimensions
There are two dimensions of Review blogs: It can be a micro review blog or Macro review Blog. Let me explain.
A micro Review Blog
This is a type of niche where you only review certain products in that case all your writings will be centred on just one particular product e.g L.G Mobile Review Blog.
You won’t review other mobile products to expect the L.G made products.
Weight loss Review Blog. here every single review you write will be talking about one weight loss product or the other. etc……
The Macro Review Niche
It’s the opposite of micro review niche: You can review any product online as far as it’s reviewable.
Mobiles, Make money, Games, Apps , health etc just review any product on your blog. then we say you’re a macro niche review blogger
Micro Niche Vs Macro Nice Review Blog
Both niches are great but focusing on a certain product will make you find your way to success easily and at the same time gain authority as soon as possible compared to when blogging the mega niche.
When you review only games, the audience coming to your blog are already aware they are coming for game tips and other games-related stuff (the can easily subscribe, buy or related in other ways)
When you review health product your audience will keep coming back because they already know you for what you offer. the same thing applied to other micro niche review blogs but not when you review them at large.
I will say a micro-niche review blog is good for a start. Don’t get me wrong i said both are great but only sharing my own point of view just like you have yours.
Now let assume you have in mind to blog mega or micro. follow the next step
How To Start A product Review Blog That Pays
1. Pick A Name For Your Blog
I do advice you always use a name that speaks for you instead of just choosing any name. Choose your blog name based on what you want to write about.
Not just choosing a related name but Also make them easy to remember and easy to spell.
I am to review mobiles I will name my blog like. MobileReviewLab.com,CatchnewMobiles.com,CheaptoMobiles.com. etc. you can check out other extensions like .net, .com.ng, .org and the likes.
2. Choose Your Blogging Platform
Blogspot isn’t limited as it can. be used to run a review blog but WordPress always wins the race… I will recommend you start your review blog like a professional using WordPress platform.
There are many web hosting companies you can use in setting up your blog but my recommendation always go to DomainKing.ng since that’s what I use in hosting all my blogs including this one you’re reading from.
All you need to do is buy hosting and domain name Which you’ve got in mind already them set up your website. You can hire someone to help you do it if you aren’t good with WordPress
3. Learn SEO
even after setting up your blog, don’t start publishing articles until you learn SEO (search engine optimization). With this you will make your website show up on google first page easily capturing more readers to your blog without stress.
There are many free WordPress SEO tutorials online which you can get started with if you don’t have enough for premium. read and read to get vast knowledge about SEO
4. Start Publishing Articles
Remember, the type of article you’re going to publish will be based on the niche you’re blogging about. If you have chosen to do micro review niche then you need to pick any high in demand product online in which you will focus your writing.
At the same time, when you choose to blog all reviews, you can write reviews about any trending products from various sources. Remember all articles should be well researched and SEO minded.
It’s not must you blog only the products you’ve tested but reviewed what you have tested will always be the best.
