How to write a good review

Here are a few guidelines that might be helpful to you.

  • Length
    • Write at least 400 words.
  • The title
    • Write a compelling headline for your review.
    • Examples: "My thoughts on [shoe name]", "Review of [shoe name] after my first 100 miles" or "Why I believe [shoe name] is the best"
  • Structure
    • Use many short sections.
    • Use a fair amount of headlines.
  • Writing
    • Use short and simple sentences.
    • Be yourself.
    • Write in a natural language.
  • Media
    • Photos make a review compelling. The more the better.
    • Use your own photos.
    • It’s a good idea to spread your photos throughout your review,
    • It’s recommended to have at least one image after your first paragraph to catch attention.
    • If you dare, make a youtube video and add a link to it. A video can be a 1-minute presentation of your thoughts, or it could be a longer in-depth review.
