I just published this Wizz and wanted professional criticism from everyone interested to help Smile

http://wizzley.com/the-honeywell-rth230b-2-day-programmable-thermostat-pros-and-cons/

I was following Jo's question about Product based articles and said why not follow some of those tips and write one of my own. It's not my first; but, I guess I implemented some of those tips into this - mainly writing on a specific product.

That's not all I'm doing, it's going to be a series and I'll be linking to them - I calculated it to be 11 articles in all (will be 10 Wizzes and 1 Hub). Writing a Hub as my subdomain is really strong and may send some traffic this way. 

Looking forward to the tips and knowing the mistakes I made.

Yay!  I love how we're all rushing to write this sort of article now.  It's like we've all been given homework by the teachers!

I can't comment on your article, because I'm more of a noob than you on these things.  But it looks good to me.

Haha :) I've written some before, but they were based on top's :)  So was not focusing on a particular product. Looking forward to comments from the 'teachers' Cool

The comments I would make, apart from changing "Before taking a loot at the features" in the first sentence, are as follows:

If you are going to keep the format as is then you should add a summary that details why they should buy it. After all you are trying to make sales.

An honest review is great for those that are still in the process of making a decision whether to buy, but without good reason to make that decision immediately they will jump from your info to someone else's who may then get the sale.

You have ONE chance to get the sale. Make every effort to get it!

My comment on the previous thread was that an article about a single product should be to confirm the decision "that has already been made" (why else would they be looking for the RTH230B other than to be told that they have made the right decision to buy) and that the best place to buy it is....wherever you say!

.....and that they can get there from your article (with alternatives links to different sites).

As a man, think what you do when shopping. You make a decision what you want; you get in the car; you look for the cheapest place to get what you have decided to buy. That is the process you are replacing by offering a method to obviate the need to find the cheapest place. You have done the research for them. Their only decision once on your article is which site to use to get the product.

OK women are different, but your product is a man thing!

The information you have supplied is the information that is best placed in an article where you compare products so that a visitor can decide between them. Only then are +ves & -ves relevant. 

My advice, for what it is worth, is to cut the info out into a linking article that compares two or more similar products. The remainder should be enhanced by linking to sites (Amazon, via Viglink, via aff progs you have joined) that offer the product at the best price, and to confirm that they are making the right decision.
