writing-reviewsBefore a purchasing an item or using a particular service, how often have you or your parents/family members looked to reviews posted online? Often these reviews (for hotels, restaurants, events, businesses) help the next person in their decision making process. In one study researchers found customer reviews were more helpful than those of “experts.”

This article provides six tips to writing a great product review. For this week’s blog, select something to review (a restaurant, a particular product/service, hotel, piece of equipment, etc.) on your blog. In your review rank what you are reviewing on a five point star scale (5 stars is high, 1 star is low), but be sure to back up your ranking in your written review. Include a photo of what you are reviewing.

Following is a link to a product review yours truly wrote about Biscoff Cookies. Remember to include a disclaimer if you received the product for “free” in exchange for writing the review. This is an FTC guideline – not disclosing this fact could get you into some hot water….

super-bowl-51Regardless of who won the game, most people associate the “big game” with commercials rather than the game itself while others tune in just for the commercials and/or the halftime show. Did you know the cost of a 30 second spot in this year’s Super Bowl was $5 million (same as last year)?

First, what are your thoughts on the cost of one 30 second commercial? Of the commercials which ran during Super Bowl 51, in your opinion, which were well worth that cost and which were not?  What was your favorite Super Bowl commercial? (if you didn’t watch do a Google search to find the commercials that ran during the game) Why?

Include a link to (or embed in your blog post) your favorite and least favorite commercials (one of each).

Remember, you must post your response on your blog.
