Need Help with Bad Review
« on: Jun 08, 2014 @ 12:17 PM »
I'm working on writing a review for a product a company sent my daughter to try/make. She LOVED it, I, on the other hand, didn't. I wouldn't pay as much as they were asking for it. The concept is awesome, but there are some design flaws that need to be addressed, and frankly, I was expecting a little bit more from it. :( I will give my honest opinion of it, but how do I do that? Ugh...I need help PLEASE!

That's always a toughy. But really, when a company sends you a product to review, that's all you have to do. If they sent you the product to write an ad, then that's different. But be honest and  constructive and it's useful for everyone.

Maybe point out or list pros & cons. Especially w/the cons, mention what your suggestion would be to improve it or what it needs that would make it better.  And price is important. We expect different things if it's free, a gift, clearance, etc so mention that as well.

I found myself returning several products if it wasn't something I would buy or would want to get/give as a gift. My blog isn't totally a review blog, though, so I liked to spotlight products I loved vs review whatever came my way. I started getting very picky during the email process and if I had doubts at all, I wouldn't accept the offer.

They emailed me to originally write an ad for them when they launched their product in May. I thought the product would be AWESOME for my daughter and it was! She loved it! I think since she is the one actually using the product, I will mainly use what she said about it and then put in a part about what I, as a parent, thought about it. It's a great idea, it just needs tweaked a bit!
