Clever Amazon Reviews the New Party

This post contains affiliate links.

Maybe I was just in the dark ages but recently I was brought in to see how Amazon reviews and clever, humorous reviews, rhymes and even stories disguised as reviews can not only bring tons of views, visits and traffic but may actually be leveraged as a way to raise sales of a particular Amazon product.  Can showcasing a snazzy and funny review like those did of the Banana Slicer on Amazon.com (read the reviews they are hilarious) lead to more sales of a product.  Are we that lazy that slicing a banana with a butter knife is too much effort we needed a tool that can slice em with one shot.

Or maybe this clever review of a jug of milk would be more your style, completely hilarious stories about the milk itself or a Dr. Seuss like rhyme for a review.

I admit I can spend more time reading the comical reviews than the details about the not so interesting products themselves.  The funny thing is that there is a market in writing reviews and entertaining ones, I have been offered free products in exchange for a detailed review on Amazon, though no one has asked me to write any thing fantastical and I do just true detailed product reviews I find this quite entertaining and it may be an art in it’s own right.  Someone should compile an ebook “Stories from the Amazon” with stories collected from Amazon reviews.
