8 Product Review Blog Success Stories [2022]
Start A Product Review Blog

A product review blog typically includes a description of the product, as well as a rating and review. This can be anything from reviewing gadgets to books to software.

To start a product review blog, you need to have strong writing skills and be familiar with the different types of products that are available. You should also have a good understanding of how to market your blog and generate traffic.

The recent trend that is making this business more popular is the growth of social media. With more people using social media, businesses are looking for ways to connect with their customers. Product review blogs provide businesses with a way to connect with their customers and generate positive reviews.

Starting a product review blog is a great way to share your opinion on different products. This type of blog can be very profitable, as you can generate revenue through advertising and affiliate marketing.

Here are some real life success stories of starting a product review blog:

1. Super Smash Cache ($24K/year)

Cy (from Detroit, MI, USA) started Super Smash Cache almost 8 years ago.

Revenue
$2K / month
Team
1 founders / 0 employees

Case Study

I’m Cy, an award-winning sex blogger who’s critiqued over 200 body-safe sex toys. My review blog, Super Smash Cache, focuses on which sex toys are worth it, which ones fall short, and which ones may work for others but not for me (and vice versa).

I gave my honest take on THAT nearly-$300 massager that won a robotics design award, and I’ll never rave about a toy that sounds like a dolphin when you clench around it — no matter how many influencers post smiling selfies with it.

Revenue
$30K / month
Team
3 founders / 13 employees

Case Study

Hi there! I’m Deyan Georgiev and I’m one of the founders of Techjury.net. If you haven’t heard of it, this means I have more work to do.

Although this strategy led to a (very) slow start, we are now making $30,000/month in revenue. This was achieved by a very small team that today consists of 13 people. We help over 200,000 people a month find the best software and products for them, their families, and their business.

Hello! This is Itai Danan founder of Cybernium Inc. This tech company builds desktop and server software, including performing full-stack web-development. We publish several of our own websites too. Cybernium was created in 1995, registered as a company, and fully incorporated in 2016.

Neocamera alone makes around $1,000 per month, making it a positive contribution to our bottom line. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, revenues certainly will be much lower but this global downturn is expected to be temporary.

6. Fin vs Fin ($600K/year)

Alex Goldberg and Healy Jones (from Santa Monica, California, USA) started Fin vs Fin almost 4 years ago.

Revenue
$50K / month
Team
2 founders / 10 employees

Case Study

Hiya! My name is Alex Goldberg, and I’m the founder of Fin vs Fin, a portfolio of popular product reviews that include, among others, finvsfin.com and zenmasterwellness.com. Despite not being much of an online shopper nor a wellness guru, my partner and I somehow managed to build a profitable media business centered on helping consumers compare health products online.

This is the story of turning a “dumb side project” into my full-time focus, stumbling into financial freedom by repeatedly doubling down on tiny wins. I hope you find it inspiring enough to launch your entrepreneurial project or keep at whatever hustle you’re currently focused on. Truth be told, you may be closer to predictable seven-figure revenue than you think.
