- Review products you own or use.
I highly recommend promoting products that you own or use so you can give feedback based upon your experience.
For example, I did a product review video on the SwitchPod. This is because I often use it when I’m shooting videos in my studio or shooting B-roll outside.
I did a review of the InVideo slideshow maker because I often use it for creating slideshows.
I often promote TubeBuddy because I want to save time doing keyword research my YouTube videos.
If you own and use the product yourself, it’s much easier to do an authentic review for your viewers.
How can you find an affiliate product to promote for your niche? One of the best ways is to sign up for the. Amazon sells almost anything on the net, and once you get that affiliate link, you can promote that particular product.
Another great benefit of using Amazon to promote your product is if somebody purchases another product on Amazon within 24 hours, you’ll get a commission from that product.
For example, if somebody purchased a SwitchPod from your amazon link and then purchased a different product within 24 hours on Amazon, you’ll still get a commission from that product.
If you’ve created your own product, then you can set up an affiliate program and get other people to promote your product through becoming an affiliate. They’ll get a 50% commission for promoting your product.
Another way to find affiliate companies for a product you may be interested in promoting is to just use Google search. All you have to do is enter your main keyword into Google search, then add +affiliate.
For example, if I enter M50 Canon camera + affiliate into Google search, immediately I’ll find a Canon Affiliate Program. Here’s one from shopusacanon.com, usacanon.com, and even amazon.com.
Later on, I’ll show you how to write a script for your product review video so you know what to say in the video.
If you want to promote high ticket affiliate programs so you can make a higher commission, enter high ticket affiliate programs into Google search. Select the best company that matches your niche.
- Sponsorships and Brand deals
This is where a company may approach you to review their products. A paid sponsorship is where they pay you to review the product.
How do you know how much you should charge them?
Estimate how much you’re worth per hour, then multiply that amount by how many hours it’ll take to create the video. If you’re worth $100 per hour, and it takes eight hours to create the video, then you can charge them $800. Because the YouTube video will remain on your channel forever, you might want to add some additional costs for the longterm promotion of that particular video.
Free Product Promotions.
Almost every day, I get e-mails from companies to promote their product for free. They’ll send me the product for free in exchange for a product review.
For example, I got sent this free mic, so I could do a review of it. Just keep in mind you don’t want to accept every product that your company wants you to review. Products should benefit your audience; otherwise, you might turn them off, and they won’t come back to watch more of your content.
Connect Creators With Brands
YouTube recently introduced BrandConnect, which is a monetization service that connects creators with brands for branded video campaigns. You get paid to include advertiser content. Currently, it’s being rolled out to select channels, and you have to be a member of the YouTube Partner Program. Click the link in the description to get an overview of the BrandConnect Program.
- Review and promote multiple products with an e-mail list
The beauty of building an e-mail list from YouTube videos is so you can promote multiple products from the same list. The bigger your list, the more money you’ll make, and you can e-mail your list anytime.
All you have to do is offer free download from YouTube videos such as a free cheat sheet, report, or video course in exchange for contact information.
When you set up this funnel correctly, you can generate leads on autopilot. If you want to learn more about how to build an e-mail list on YouTube,
Here’s how to write a product review script.
- Introduce the product.
Begin your video by showing what the product does. Showing a preview of your product at the beginning of your video hooks the viewers’ attention and gets them to watch the rest of the video.
- List key product features.
Emphasize all the main features of what the product does. If it’s a physical product like the SwitchPod, you can show some B-roll of you using it with your camera. If you’re reviewing a digital product, then show some screenshots of how it works.
For instance, when a company approached me about reviewing their slideshow maker, I shot some B-roll and showed people how to make the slideshow using their software.
- Discuss the benefits of the product.
Make sure you always keep the viewer in mind and outline the benefits of using a particular product.
- Compare the pros and cons.
Instead of just to outline the benefits of the product, include some of the disadvantages. For example, for the SwitchPod, it doesn’t come with a ball head, so you can’t stabilize it on uneven ground.
- Explain its intended target.
You want to explain who the product is for, so you’re talking to the right viewers, and they can make the right decision to get the product.
- Include the price and purchase information.
If there’s different pricing options, show the advantages and disadvantages of the different pricing options, so the viewer can make the best decision to get the product or not.
- Give a strong call to action.
End your video with a strong call to action to get the product. If you’re reviewing a digital product like, you might promote the free trial.
If you follow these script writing tips to do a video review of the product, you’ll have a higher probability of making a sale from the product.
Let me ask you a question…

Post your answer in the comments below. I’d love to read them, and I’m sure others would too.
Here are some important things to keep in mind when reviewing products on YouTube.
- Avoid reviewing products that you don’t believe in or don’t use.
If a company e-mails you to do a free product review, make sure that it suits the viewers of your channel. You might also warn them that you may not do a review if it doesn’t meet your expectations or it doesn’t benefit your viewers.
- Optimize your product review video.
Include the product name and the title description and tags of your YouTube video. This will make it easier for your product review video to be found on the first page of YouTube search when someone submits a query in YouTub
- Add a disclaimer in the description of your YouTube video.
If you’re selling an affiliate product, I highly recommend putting a disclaimer at the bottom of your description. You can check out the disclaimer in the description of any of my videos.
- Include a business e-mail on your About page.
This will make it easy for companies to get a hold of you to review their products. As I mentioned earlier, I receive e-mails from companies almost every day to review one of their products. I only accept the ones that interest me or would be of value to my viewers. I recommend you do the same.
- Create a media kit.
The main benefit of creating a media kit is that you can quickly send it to companies that approach you to do a review of their product.to download a media sponsorship agreement template. When you show clear guidelines to a company to sponsor a product review video, it’s easier to negotiate a special price for your video.
- Be consistent
If you want to generate more revenue from YouTube videos, make a plan to publish more product review videos.
If you have multiple review videos that are ranked on the first page of YouTube, you’ll make more money from your channel.
For example, I created and published product review videos several years ago, and those videos are still generating revenue to this day on autopilot. That’s an amazing return on investment for just doing the work once.
