Creating consumer review sites is an excellent way to build your reputation as an expert online. It is also a good way to profit from any affiliate program you’re marketing.
Consumer review sites are designed to convert viewers into buyers by briefly describing the various pros and cons between various websites or products in a particular niche.
While the advantages of mentioning benefits is obvious, here’s why you should also sprinkle a few critical remarks, too:
The reason you want to add a little bit of criticism is because you want to come across as an objective reviewer. However, you should keep your critiques mild, rather than condemn the merchant’s products strongly. Your aim is to sound balanced. It is not to burn the merchant.
Here are some steps you need to take to develop a mini site.
One, find a profitable niche. You may want to use keyword research to help make your decision.
Two, determine the best products to review within your niche. These are products which you will be making an affiliate commission from.
Three, write well-crafted reviews of each merchant. Only choose about three to five merchants to review. You don’t want to confuse the reader with too many choices. Each review need not be more than 100 or 200 words. You want to be short, punchy, and concise, while still being helpful and informative.
Four, design an eye catching landing page. Add headers and graphics and neatly spaced frames. Avoid slapping on banners or other advertising. These will only distract your visitor’s attention. You want them to read your reviews and click on a link so that you can become eligible for a commision if they make a purchase.
Each mini-site should sell only one particular niche and should be optimized only for that niche. You want to select keywords that are based on your niche, those that are popular enough to attract some good traffic.
The best way to optimize your mini-site is to use your keywords in the title, heading tags, and graphic alt tags.
Make everything very easy to find and make on-page navigation very simple. You don’t want your prospects confused by where to go or what to do.
Whatever you are reviewing, quickly describe the product the merchant is offering. Keep your focus tightly on the product or service. You can also pre-sell the merchant by mentioning endorsements and bonuses.
While setting up your mini site, don’t try and be cheap when choosing your hosting. You want to have a host that has a good track record of minimal down time and prompt, efficient, and courteous technical support. The domain you select should have the niche name in it and the word “review” in it as well. This will help to increase your search engine rankings along with your traffic generation.
Mini sites have numerous advantages.
One, they are easier to optimize for search engine ranking.
Two, inbound links to your mini sites will lead to a higher Google Page Rank.
Three, you can easily establish yourself as an expert in your niche.
Four, the combination of all these three can generate higher traffic than many regular websites that have an unclear focus.
Using mini sites to market consumer review sites is an easier way to make quick money because you do not require much time or money to set them up.
