1) Be topical- This is one great approach to a product review lens. Pick products that are hot right now. Breaking Bad just released their final season today on DVD so people are searching for Breaking Bad products, it’s hot!. ErinMellor created this awesome lens: The Perfect Los Pollos Hermanos Shirt for Breaking Bad Fans that would make a great gift for the Breaking Bad fans in your life.

2) Go super niche -This is another awesome approach. Pick tightly focused products that have a loyal fan base. JoanneOtt did a fabulous job on a classic film: Double Indemnity: A Classic Film Noir.

3) Get personal – Reviewing the stuff that you own and love shines through. Here’s some examples of personal reviews. World War ZHow the iPad enhances our lives and Frying Pan-West Bend 72213 Skillet.
