Looking for some inspiration when writing a review, or want to know what makes a great review? Check our advice below …
Write a review
Reviews must be at least 50 words to earn points for the Tell Me Baby rewards program. When writing, describe your experience with the product in detail. Here are some questions to consider when leaving a review:
Why did you decide to buy this product over others?
Did it live up to your expectations?
What did you like most about the item?
Would you say it offers value for money?
Would you make any changes to the product if you could?
Would you recommend it to a friend?
Add an image
You’ll earn 5 extra points for adding 3 images of the product you’re reviewing – and seeing different aspects of the product will help other parents as they’re looking at all the reviews, too. Keep these things in mind when taking the photos:
Try to take images in natural daylight or near windows – otherwise, use a flash.
Images taken against a white, clean background work best.
Use a variety of angles and shots of the product in use. Flat-lays also look great as additional shots.
Take close ups of relevant labels i.e. ingredients/nutritional information/directions for use.
Minimise clutter so the product being reviewed stands out in the image.
Do not feature other brands’ products in the same shot.
Not happy with your image? We love the editing features on picmonkey.com.
Try not to resize or blur images.
Add a video
We love videos of products in action – and you’ll earn extra points for sharing a video with us, too. Here are a few guidelines:
If filming on a smartphone, always have the camera in landscape view (sideways), not portrait.
Try to film in natural daylight, or with lights turned on and bright.
Hold the camera/phone steady, or use a tripod. A handheld tripod will reduce a lot of shaking and frees up your other hand to demonstrate the product. Of course, you can also have someone else record while you use both hands to use the product – but make sure they’re holding the camera/phone steady!
Minimise background noise – the TV, dishwasher, air con etc.
Be honest and concise in your review.
Speak clearly and do not use inappropriate language.
