In our most recent YouTube video, we discussed the topic of how to make product review videos and how easy they are to put together. Product review videos when done correctly will also rank well for SEO.
Viewers when looking for product review videos are generally in the process of making a final buying decision after doing their research and comparisons. A well put together product review video which is honest and balanced, providing information on what you both like and don’t like about the product is likely to make them more comfortable with the product, if it meets their needs.
We go into a lot of detail in this video, providing information on the 8 steps required to put together a good product video and provide examples, so be sure to check it out. It is approximately 8 minutes in duration.
In the concluding comments we refer to the subject of affiliate programs, mentioning that you will need to disclose any relationships with companies you are promoting the products through such as Amazon.
Laws in various countries (certainly in the United States and Australia) require that if you receive affiliate earnings/commission for referring customers then you must disclose this relationship. This is of course positive because being open and honest with your viewers builds trust.
