Teoh get, um, just a free things. And hopefully you could actually earn money, too, if you'd like from reviewing things. So please join me, and, um, we'll get started, all right? 2.

View my Review Blog: okay, we'll start by looking at my review, blogged. My review. Block is reviews Doubt. 50 things to know dot com The reason I selected this is because I have the website 50 things you know dot com Already, I'm using it Teoh and creating content and selling, um, E books with 50 things to know reviews. So I created ah, part of this website that separate from 50 things I know dot com that's reviews that 50 things you know dot com so you can click on the other blog's that I have under the same thing here. So on this block, I also create, um, other income streams. Other ways. Thes links go to Amazon, and I have Amazon associates. So if people click on these links and then go to Amazon, I get 6% 6 to 8% of any purchase they make in a certain time frame from Amazon Associates. That's a different class, but that's another way that I make money on my review block from people looking at my reviews. You can see all the reviews here. I also collect email addresses, and this is for my 50 things to know. Ah, books email. So when people happen to go to 50 things to know reviews, they put in their email address that will help with my other business. You could see all the categories I have here, and this is nice for when people try and decide if they want Teoh have us review their content, they can click on their area and see other reviews that we've already written in this area . So you can see I've been doing this for a while. I actually have people review stuff for me now. They do it for free because they get the actual items, and basically it's because I have already have a certain amount of things that I, um I've been doing reviews for a while. So, for example, this water. I wasn't interested in this water, but I have a friend, Caitlin, that she waas or at least interested in trying it. So she tried it and saw how it so you can see some of the different stuff that I have got reviews for. And again, these links at the bottom go to Amazon, so if people click them, I get a percentage of what they play, all right, So let's look at, for example, this, um um a waiver hair waiver. Um, let me go. Let's do one that I've done. So here, you can see I've recently received these beautiful pearl earrings. Um, and I share them on different ways in different social media sites. So, for example, I've shared this one on my INSTAGRAM account and, um, used different hashtags, and I've also shared it on my vine. So I use things in different ways to sure things. I talked a little bit about this one review that I just did, and it was on traveling to a casinos. And that's one thing that I recently got. So I shared some of my instagram photos here, and you can see I can share in different ways Twitter, Facebook, Google. So people are really interested in, um, in how you're sharing the content once you get there items. So one thing I do have is on vine is when I open packages. I like to share them. Go to my profile. I share different things online too. But so, for example, and this is just some of the content that I like to create for people. Um for Teoh promote their items when they send them to me, I get most of my items for free and, um, then review them. And I think you start getting items based on items you're interested in, and then it keeps aggregating to get more things that are similar. So if you keep reviewing one things in one area, I think that's helpful. All right, let's talk about where I get some of my reviews. 4. Where to Find Reviews: Hi, everyone. So today we're going to look at where I get some of the reviews to get started. And, um so I have a WordPress block, and we just looked at that, And one of the places that you couldn't start getting reviews is thomason dot com So T o M o S o n um, And once you create account, you could log in and you will see the different things that you can review. Here, we'll click on the dashboard, and, um so you will start putting your social media information so you can create a separate account from your personal account for Twitter Google different social accounts. Um, here. And then you can find different products that people are trying to get reviews on. So here you can see some of the things that people are trying to get reviews on. Um, you can click here. Some are free, some you can actually get paid for if you have a certain following of people. And if you're interested in, um in doing review, you will click here and you can choose what channels you would like to share it with. So these air, all channels that you can have available to share with, um, if you have Amazon prime er that that that basically means do you get free shipping or not ? So people will want to know if you get free shipping from Amazon so they contribute to you for free or not. Then how long you're going to take to complete it that you read the, um, the information and guidelines. And basically you can read these guidelines. But you need to say that you got this item for a discount to review it. And I include that in all of my information, and this is where you can apply. So that is one way. Then they'll get back to you and see if you offer it and then just send it to you in the mail. So that's one way to get reviews. Another one is to get them from actual um um, PR companies that will send you the information. They'll send you a little information about it, and that's another way. And finally, the last way is I have a Amazon associates. Sorry, I have an Amazon account, and this is where review things. So this is my review account and in this review account, I have included, um, my email address and you can see I'm 24,000 reviewer ranking. So sometimes when I review certain things, for example, Children's book to something, I review a lot. People will notice that I've reviewed them, and then they will see this email and they'll send me a link to ask me to review it. And that is where I'm starting to get more content like that, too, I think. Also, people search for my reviews of if they have similar products to review if they want me to review and then ask if I'll review it. So that's another way that people have found me for reviews. So it just keeps building on itself and, um that are different ways that I get reviews. 5. The Entire Review Process.: high class. Finally, I'm gonna show you what the whole review process looks like. So some people sometimes say, like, Oh, you get all this free stuff all the time. It must just be so easy. And it is easy, but there's a lot of set up involved, So I'm gonna show you, um, what it looks like for me to do a review. Okay, so I got this email and you'll see seven days ago, and they asked me to review this Sunday lotion in this chapstick. Okay, Um, so, um, I actually like my favorite part of the whole review was this chap stick. My daughter really liked it when she got in the mail. So I'm gonna say that to my desktop, and I'm gonna call it. Hello, Kitty. It's actually sudden screen, So but Alcala tastic, so I'll save it with the names of people pinned. The image is the name will be on there. Okay, I send it to my desktop. You could save it to wherever you want to. All right, then I will go to my review block, and I will log in as an administrator. And Logan, um, I actually just received in the mail yesterday This package. And, um, I like to share when I receive packages on divine, because it's kind of fun. Open them. But also, then I remember what packages came in the mail. You could also write it down so you can see. You can see I shared it with the hash tag to Okay, so then, um this is what I got in the mail. Just like they said they would send. Okay, Now, I have gone into my review website, and I will click New Post. So I will go into that email, and, um, I will include this. The name I like to write that, and we'll include this one. And hello, Kitty. Oh, Allah Cooling spray and, um, lip balm. Yes, Lip balm. Since this is very long and I think that title's too long, let me copy and paste that down here. And let's dio summer, um, Summer kids Summer Central's and yea for spell check, right click. And that's how you do that. Okay, um, so I have those three things in there are all great forgetting bringing your kids outside. Um, this summer I received the's items at a discount for an honest review. All right, So this is where then I will add the media of the image that I uploaded from the email to my desktop On. As you can see, I've read lots of reviews and have lots pictures. Uh, the title, you see came in here because that's what I named it. And the description I could put all that information. So here you can see, I like to have it on the left. I will choose the category of probably Children. There's probably suntan lotion, um, summer swimming. That sounds good. And, um, down here, I like to set the future image, and that means it will just go on the main screen, and I will put that there. All right, so then after, I will just take a little bit about it. My daughter was excited to try this lip balm, and we both I loved it. I was excited. She wanted it since I think she did. Because of the Hello Kitty. All right, um, smell street, so I can add. You see, I just read a little bit in there. So now I'll go back to the email that I received all right, and I'll copy and paste some of this information in there. So, um, I can also add a link to my Amazon. Um, so if people click on the links toe, look on Amazon for these items that I will get, you know, six or 7% of whatever they buy on Amazon if they click on these links. So that's another way and to make money from your views. So I've added the information, um, of the different things. I added my review of the item, and you can add tags here. Hello, kitty, um, Australian cold and so forth. All right, then I'll finally publish this information. It will create a link, and I will send that link to the person who asked me to do the review. Really? Right. Thank you. All right. And I will also pin this information, but it's interesting. I think I know what happened. The reason I won't let me pin is because the image is not big enough to pin, so it does a full size. All right, well, let's add something that I can pin because I think it's important to pin an image will go back to the email. I hope these all look pretty small. Try again, Seve. Image at image. This one I'll dissenter. We will give it a name because I didn't give it a name before. So you can't see it when you pin it trace center it and hopefully this image will be printable, Dependable. So then I'll share on my social media links for that person to. So I still have to go to all my social media here. I also like to add this social media. So let me change that, too. I'll go and click on the date and time that will create this, um on click on in bed. I like to choose the smaller one. We'll highlight this when they go into the post. Go into the text area, I'll put it at the bottom, and then you can. When I save it, you'll be able to see the vine video of me opening the package to So then I have that link that I can share all shared on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and I can just do that by I'm clicking at the bottom two. And then I'll share all those links with the person that sent it to me. So as you can see, it's a little process on after you get the items Teoh create, um, a good review and then share it. And I can also include, um, creating Amazon links in this so they can actually go to Amazon and buy it so I could earn extra revenue. So that is the review process. And I hope you learned something today, and hopefully you can get out there and get some free things to review yourself. All right. Thank you for taking this class again, please. Like this class. Thank you.
