Making A Good Review - Part I

At first I'm a little bit shy to write this tutorial as I have only been writing reviews for several months now. During those months I have joined many advertising sites such as ReviewMe, Smorty, Blogsvertise and many more. But from many sites that I joined those three are the sites which generate most of my revenue. But recently I have also managed to write review offers from Bloggerwave.

Now let us turn ourselves to the topic here. How to write a good review? Good review means that it is not only acceptable and meets the standards given by the advertisers but also provides useful information for your readers. It is useless to just write about something that no one will understand. You need to use good words and sentences that make up a good paragraph. It is the same as the basic writing rules. You need to have a solid idea and then build your writing around that. Usually the advertisers want you to write a minimum of 200 words, thus you can divide this to three paragraphs. The first paragraph is the introduction, the second is the main and most important paragraph, the last is for conclusion and anything you want to add up.

You can begin the first paragraph by making statements that will support the reviewed product or site. For example, if you are told to write about vacuum cleaners, you can start by explaining what is the use of it and why is it important. So your first line could be something like this: "Keeping your home clean is a very hard thing to do if you are cleaning it by traditional tools such as a broom". This sentence contradict the traditional tools for cleaning, in this case represented by broom, and the advance tools that you are going to review, the vacuum cleaner. By now, the reader should have a slight idea with what you're trying to tell them. The second line of your paragraph will say: "This trouble can be overcome with the help of a vacuum cleaner". The reader will then think and may agree with you that a vacuum cleaner is a better tool to use in cleaning up a messy and dirty house. You can then build a good introduction paragraph about vacuum cleaner. The introduction is usually the most important and difficult part to write. But once you have a solid introduction the rest is really simple.
