This is a subdirectory, not a subdomain.

This is a subdomain.

Thanks for clearing that up. I was trying to tack on specific product information that customers could get to directly rather than going to the home page and clicking on a link.

You could either create Pages or Categories and then posts within the Categories.  I would lean towards categories as it gives you a more natural navigational hierarchy:

Where "products" is the category and "cool-widget" is the post.

If you plan on moving towards e-commerce or reviews, you would probably want to invest the effort in making a Custom Post Type to get enhanced flexibility with the taxonomy.
