Finding products on the internet is actually quite hard. There’s so many products out there that are written about in a very convincing way. One of the most common ways people sell products on the internet involves reviews.
If you didn’t know any better, it’s very easy to get snagged by these reviews. They look very credible. They talk about features, problems and they often compare different products to each other. In terms of appearance, they seem very legitimate.
Why do reviews work so well? Well, it all boils down to appearance. When you are in a rush to make a decision, you would naturally gravitate towards an essay about a product that looks like it is formatted to help you make a quicker and better decision. At least, this is what it looks like. Little do you know, often until you have to refund the product that you thought was such a hot idea, the review did you in. That’s right, its credibility-building features have been twisted, exploited, and maximized to make a call you in all likelihood would not make on your own.
After all, when customers are confused they can be relied on to do one thing reliably-that’s right, they would choose to do nothing. Who can blame them? When was the last time you lost money by sitting on your hands. I would venture to guess the answer is never. And that’s precisely the reason why otherwise intelligent yet desperate customers choose to do nothing if they feel they don’t have enough information about a product. Reviews override this. They push people to make one decision after another by giving them the impression that they have all the information they need to make a reasonable decision.
Unfortunately, you can’t judge a book by its cover. At the end of the day, your decision has to boil down to results. This is why you have to have some sort of research system if you’re looking for any kind of product. For example, if you’re looking for the best ceiling fans, your choice of research system can make or break your success. By “success” I’m talking about you not getting ripped off.
You don’t want to over pay for something that will fall apart quickly. You don’t want to pay too little for something that you want to be heavy duty. You see how this works? You want something that does the job that you are looking for. You want something that handles the problems that you want addressed.
That’s just not going to happen if you just jump with both feet onto the first review that claims to list “the best” ceiling fans. That’s just not gonna happen. You have to have the proper research system. I’ve already laid it out. It’s all about zeroing in on your needs, lining up those needs to fit certain features and then cross referencing these features across a wide range of products. This is how you nail this problem once and for all.
