WE NEED REVIEW UNITS ! DON’T WE?
We bloggers, YouTubers, un-boxers, reviewers! All of us want review units but do we get them to the start? No, we don’t! That’s The Truth You Agree Or Not. We ask people for it; we ask to follow colleagues and contact the companies too. I did that you also would have done it. But I didn’t get it. So, here are the 5 tips you need to implement or check whether you are on right track or not.
1] MAKE YOUR EMAIL ID VISIBLE!
Make it visible? How! Here’s how:-
First of all, you need to think how will the PR (Public Relations) of any company will contact you? They will not send you a friend request on facebook! Nor they will message you! THEY WILL MAIL YOU!
So make sure you mention your email on the ‘About us Page.‘ If you run a blog. Or if you are a Youtuber then add it in the Description of your channel. Just make sure it is visible enough and the PR doesn’t have to search for it!
2] TELL PEOPLE THAT YOU REVIEW TOO!
People often forget to mention that they will review if you provide them units! How will the PR know that you will review unless you say it? The best way to make them know is making some review videos of anything you have which are probably new in the market. For e.g, If you get a new mouse that’s launched you just make a short review video or if you are a blogger then just write posts on the product which you have used or had an opinion about.
3] WRITE A DECENT E-MAIL TO THE PR-
Make sure to write a decent email to the PR’s from whom you want to get review units. The email should be clear just from the beginning. Start from your name on the top along with a decent introduction about you and your blog or YouTube Channel, from where are you , contact address and make sure to mention what type of products you need to review. Try to keep your writing style a little professional as it will mark a very good impression on the respective PR! And don’t forget to prove you’re legit. Just think about it! Will any company give their product to just anyone who will ask them for one? No! You need to have a good Blog or YouTube Channel with a good amount of views and subscribers.
4] TREAT THE PR NICELY-
Well, this may sound weird but to get review units, you must treat the respective PR’s of the company nicely. You don’t need to excessively show off your skills to them. Be polite and formal. That will do the job. Whenever you meet or talk to any PR, keep in mind that they are not your friend so that you will make some lame jokes and they won’t mind it. Talk only to the point and that’s it! Make them believe that you can write or make a great review for their product. For this, you can also attach a link to any post or review you did before.
5].STAY IN CONTACT-
This is actually the most important thing you need to do after requesting for a review unit. Once you have got the product, make sure to inform the company about it. Also, it depends on you whether you want to make an unbiased review or not as it will be more interesting to the viewers.
Well, those were some of the tips which may help you get review units for you. We hope you will like this article. Don’t forget to share it more and more. Do let us know about your opinions in the comments section! :D
