What makes a product impressive on Amazon? Ideally, it has to be affordable, or at least cheap. It also has to be something I’ll get tons of use out of, like a slim phone wallet or a travel-friendly sewing kit. But what makes a product truly outstanding is the number of positive reviews it has. For example, a sewing kit that has more than 10,000 four- and five-star reviews — and that’s just the start.
