What Makes a Great Quality Review? (A Step by Step Guide)
A Good Quality Review includes enough detail to give others a feel for what happened. Explain which factors contributed to your positive, negative or just so-so experience. You might also offer your view on what the company is doing well, and how they can improve. But keep things friendly and courteous!
The best reviews include not only whether you liked or disliked the product, but also why. Discussing the quality of the product and your opinion of it is what a good review should be composed of. Your review should be
1) Review length
Longer reviews are more useful than reviews containing just a few reviews. More sentences and paragraphs giving in-depth detail about your experience with the company are preferred because they are more useful and informative to those reading them.
2) Spelling and grammar
Reviews which are most useful are those which are well-written, make sense to everyone, and do not use abbreviations or slang in their content. Text speak also is not really very useful, so please try to avoid that.
3) Be informative and insightful
Reference the product and the particular points that you appreciated. Make the review concise, focusing on a couple of points from the product, while being detailed and specific at the same time. What would you have wanted to know before you purchased the product?
4) Be authentic
Make your review a personal account using the first person. Review your own experience, and explain why you liked or disliked the product. We encourage you to write honest reviews, so try to be accurate and include both the positive and negative aspects of the product.
5) Be respectful
No matter how bad, disappointing, or discouraging the experience with the product was, it’s best to provide constructive criticism. Businesses sometimes take your reviews into account regarding improving their products.
6) Make it personal
A review will be much more interesting if you can weave a bit of personality in there. I like to tell people how I discovered a band, or where I brought the album from, or what the songs remind me of.
Some people worry that if they give personal anecdotes in reviews they disclose their biases and discredit themselves. But writing a review is the very act of revealing your biases, whether it’s that you’re a sucker for ebooks with swear words in the title or you prefer Norwegian black metal over Hellenic black metal. Your readers understand you’re giving your opinion, so color it with your experience.
7. Final Thoughts: Good Content Matters
While this guide isn’t all-inclusive, the above tips will help you nail the requisite honest, authentic tone in your writing of a review – but above all else, it’s important to remember that good content will be read and appreciated above all else. Your opinion will tell readers whether the product is meant for them, so treat them with respect by providing helpful information.
