You will also require a good microphone for voice recording. Additionally, you will need a cable to connect your camera to your computer from where you can upload your video to your website.
To make a great video product review, you will need a well-written script that has all the details of what you are going to record. The reason why you need a script is because if you just start recording without knowing exactly what you will want your customers to know, you will end up doing a poor video which will never achieve the desired results.
Once you have your script ready, it will be good for you to go through the details of the product that you are going to market to familiarise yourself with all the details. This also gives you more insight on the style and order in which you are going to deliver your information.
If your script is too long to be recorded all at once, then it will be advisable to record small clips so you can put it all together in the editing process.

There are several good editing software out there that you can choose from and choose the one that you will be comfortable to work with.

If you recorded several small clips, you would need to join them together into one session. After you have finished editing your product review video, you will need to add one final component, add a great and captivating title and a final slide which contains your contact details and your affiliate marketing link.
You can also include an opt-in box near your video product is possible. Customers love honest product reviews, and once your video convinces them, they will want to know how to get them. You can make the whole process easier for them by giving them somewhere to opt into your link in your video. With the technological improvement, it is now possible to make your video review on a page with an opt box below your video.
You can make your video product review better by including a share button and comments box below your video so that your viewers can either share your video on their social media platforms and can leave a comment about your affiliate product.
Before you upload your video to your website or YouTube, review the whole video product to be sure that it contains all the information that you had on your script.
You can also let your friends and family go through the entire video product and see if there is any area that needs to be corrected. If they make any recommendations, do not ignore their criticism, take it positively and make any improvements that require being made.
Once you are satisfied with the video product review, you are ready to upload it to your website or video sharing website like YouTube to start doing reviews and generating affiliate sales.
