Electronic Gadgets: What are They?

According to Ohyie, Electronics refers to a branch of engineering that focuses its interest of study on the transport of information via the magnetic waves.

Another definition that is a bit broader expands electronics as a field that combines the physics, engineering, technology and applications that enter into play to deal with the emission, flow and control of electrons in vacuum or matter

===>This means that most electronic devices are best understood through this common characteristic of transporting information through waves and are built through a system that combines some physics, technology, and engineering to transport information through electrons.

This dictionary defines gadget as either a small ingenious/novel mechanical or electronic device /tool. It should be noted that smallness is a defining characteristic of a gadget; if a device is big it is rarely called a “gadget”

Some electronic gadgets are known to most of us as they operate many machines, ships, airplanes, and industrial activities. Also, they are used to identifying conditions for the performance of any works. E.g. T.V., Computer, Laptops, Palmtops, Digital Camera, Mp3 Players, Mobiles, digital pens, printers etc. (See Ohyie)

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is a form of marketing whereby a website/blog or YouTube channel owner promotes other people’s products or services…

The most popular and exemplar is the promotion of Amazon products on websites… This is possible after one has applied successfully for this service or promotion…. And if the application is successful, a website owner is given access to products links that he or she will put on his or her website…. Whenever a website visitor clicks on a product linked to those links… she or he is directly to Amazon stores…. as such a visitor purchases an item… The website owner gets a commission… Amazon commissions amount up to 6%

Where do smartphone and gadget reviewers get money to buy those gadgets?

First you should be an expert in that field. Say you are an android phone geek and you have few YouTube videos where you have reviewed few android phones and people have shared them and like them. You can make a living out of that!

To get gadgets to review, you can make friends with phone repairing shops! Another possibility is to ask a relative or a friend’s phone and you just need to do 3- 4 YouTube videos to get noticed. Even if you feel likely not able to have a new model of the gadget you want to review, there are several phones (or other gadgets of interest) frenzy guys around you who buy new models every month. You can ask them to review their phones and post that review at YouTube.

This approach allows you to get videos needed to be ranked by Google and then be noticed by the target audience: this gives you a quick start and publicity with actually no investment, what incredible ideas!

Now you have become popular at YouTube and it is time to earn money

Whenever a company launches new mobile or gadgets models, approach them say their sales manager and offer free reviews providing them with sample video of your earlier review at YouTube as an experience or CV in gadget review!

You will easily get free gadgets to review and also the company verification stamp that you are reviewing for them.

Getting what to review highly depends on your accomplishments already, the product you intend to be reviewing, and who will be sponsoring your video. Usually what happens is that a reviewer will get a sample product for 60 days from the company, review it, and send it back. Most companies have no obligation for how you must review it.

But Apple appears to be a special case. For this company, you review of their products should be positive lest you lose this review privilege…

The other way is a company like dBrand will sponsor the video, send you the product with their product attached, and ask you to review the product wearing their product. It is simple product placement. Sometimes, if neither of these things happen, the reviewer will go buy the product, review it, and then flip it for minimal loss. These are the three ways most reviewers get their products.

It should be noted that it is not that easy to attract the best-sellers who easily give you access to their product for reviews!

Some companies have their criteria to give you access to their product reviews. For example, some Chinese company do offer their products if you qualify their norms. If you want to get quality product to review then you should either have good audience on YouTube i.e., a good number of subscribers or good amount of page views on your blog. Also, if you can afford to buy products in starting and reviewing them, they will to attract sellers if you can manage to get good amount of page views.

I bet that after a number of reviews (be patient not to show a money hungry aspect of yours!;) using your own means,.. you will automatically start to get paid reviews by other android companies: this is your take off….yes…to land into the lands of passive income earners…..

The key is to review brands that are produced hugely by companies (example only androids) as many companies are making new gadgets/phones…look at for example Samsung, Intex, Google phone, etc. So the competition is high with lot of opportunities in this field.
