If you have been in the blogging world for any length of time, you have seen bloggers get some awesome products to review. You might even be wondering how you can start reviewing products on your own site. Getting products to review isn’t that hard. However, don’t expect to start off getting top-dollar products. You will need to start off by building relationships with brands and agencies that connect bloggers with brands.

How to Start Reviewing Products

Boy how we pay close attention to these topics when we start a blog. Probably the number one question I find in communities and groups I belong to is “How do I start reviewing?” and “Where can I find products for review?” I have a few sources I use that gain me excellent relationships with PR contacts for some great companies. However, if you are brand new to blogging then you want ‘examples’. Companies will be linked to your site from these resources and if you are asking for reviews, but have none to show as an example on your site, you may get disregarded.

    I am new to the blogging platform and I’ve got to admit; there is alot of overwhelming information.

    I understand that I need a web presence in order to move forward with some of the projects that I have in mind. I’m a single mother of 4 children, I work full time but need to explore multiple income sources.

    I’ve taken the first two steps and that is purchasing a domain and hosting. What I find hard to do, since I’m bootstrapping, is find layouts and images that I like. Most of the free sites have okay images but they are so blahh! What do you suggest since “the first impression is the lasting one”?

  • Thank you for the great info. I found the comments and supporting links just as helpful – esp. pitching retailers link.

    Just the article I’m looking for. I’m trying to brainstorm some ways to expand my reach in the new year and working on product reviews that are catered to my blog/audience is something I’m really interested in. Thanks for a great post!

      You are very kind. I am one of the co-owners of TOTS (where the post is from) and we have lots of good resources, hope you will keep stopping by!

  • Thanks for the list! It was very helpful, and the companies have been bookmarked. 😉 However, I still feel that contacting brands myself is the best way to go. You’ve given great tips that can be incorporated in my search to work directly with the brands I love.

  • Thanks so much for this post. I have been wondering about product reviews for quite a while now.

    • Cat @TOTS says:

      Glad you liked the post! Reviews are a great way to engage readers, and adding a giveaway is also another way to encourage readers to visit and return!

    Great post. Where is the best to start if you are brand new, and you are still building up followers to your blog?

    • Cat @TOTS says:

      Hey Nicki! I am one of the authors from TOTS (where the above post is from), getting people to read your blog has always been a huge question our readers face.

        Hi Nicki! One of the best ways is to connect with other bloggers! Never underestimate the power in commenting. Visit blogs in your niche and comment to them leaving a back link to your blog. Join FB Blog communities and share your posts there, asking other Bloggers to share them too! Good luck!
