Advantages Will help me make a decision whether or not to buy
Disadvantages May not be as helpful to someone else
While there’s no doubt that becoming a parent is a wonderful, fulfilling experience, it’s can also be an experience full of must-haves and wonder products. There are so many different products on sale that claim to make a parent’s life easier, or to help baby develop quicker, or that they’re simply the best of the type. Some of these products are indeed fantastic, while others are simply useless while yet more claim to solve problems that do not exist and pander to our insecurities. So how do I navigate my way through this minefield? Well, if I’m looking to buy a new product I’ll often research it online, which means I read reviews, some of which are helpful, while others are sadly less-so. As well as reading reviews on this type of product, I love sharing my experiences of using baby and family related products, whether those experiences be good or bad. There’s something very satisfying about warning others off the mistakes I’ve made. Over the last few years I’ve written quite a number of Kids & Family related reviews and now I’m going to share my feelings on what makes a Very Helpful and possibly even exceptional review on the subject.
Although it’s very tempting to simply start typing into the ‘write review’ box, I would really suggest that you hold fire and open up a word processing program instead. I always write my reviews in Word but any other word processing program is just as good. This will allow you to write your review over a period of time, spell check, proof read and generally get your thoughts in order without worrying about losing your work.How you format your review is entirely up to you, some people like to use headings while others don’t. Personally I think heading are most useful with longer more in depth reviews that go into various aspects of a product and that shorter reviews don’t really need them. However you format, try to use decent grammar with paragraphs and spacing, make your review as easy on the eye as possible. Remember we are being paid for these reviews so it’s only right that we put as much effort into making it as easy to get the information out of them as possible. And whatever you do, don’t use ‘text speak’.
When writing about any product it’s important to have relevant experience, but it can be especially hard to define ‘relevant’ when writing Kids & Family related reviews.
