Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I am a newbie in online marketing, and I need your advise.
I run a website, and I am looking for ways to improve my ROI. One of the ways I see is adding product reviews from experts.
I see that many my competitors have reviews of their products on their websites.
So I was wondering how people usually go around it. I mean, should I mention that I am willing to pay for this in my message to a potential reviewer? How should I ask for a review?
Sorry for these questions. I just don't know how to approach someone whom I want to ask to review my product.
Thanks as always for your advices and shared experience.
I mean, should I mention that I am willing to pay for this in my message to a potential reviewer.
I wouldn't recommend it. Reviews - unlike advertising copy - are supposed to be impartial assessments. If word gets out that you've paid for a product review it will damage your reputation and that of the company who did the reviewing.
Why not contact a couple of publications which cover your field and ask them to include your product in their next comparative review of competing products?
