Blog Monetization – Getting Paid to Review
Sponsored review programs, or paid review programs, are another extremely popular way to earn money with your blog posts. I use sponsored review programs to earn money and to get ideas for new, quality, content when writers block creeps up on me. These programs allow blog owners to sign up, register their blog, and then review a variety of websites. Each review usually consists of a neutral, or positive, overview of the website paying for the review, along with up to three links to the sponsorsâ€™ website. Some of the most popular paid to review programs are:
Blogger Wave: http://www.bloggerwave.com
Blog Ads: http://bloggingads.com
Blog to Profit: http://www.blogtoprofit.com
Link Worth: http://www.linkworth.com
Linky Love Army: http://www.linkylovearmy.com
Loud Launch: http://www.loudlaunch.com
Pay Per Post: http://www.payperpost.com
Review Me: http://www.reviewme.com
Sponsored Reviews: http://sponsoredreviews.com/
These programs are all a great source of revenue paying bloggers anywhere from $5.00 to $500.00 per review. Those blogs that are established with steady traffic are going to make more money per review than a smaller, new bog. This is a great money maker for those blog owners who are only hoping to pay for hosting aka break even. However, you have a great blog and time to post you can make an impressive income with these programs. I make, on average, $100 per week with paid review opportunities.
Currently my favorite programs to use are Payu2Blog, Sponsored Review, and Blogitive. They all offer a steady source of income, especially during certain times of year. During the holiday season I easily made $50.00 per day using these programs, and all of the products and sites being reviewed interested my readers. Essentially I got paid to provide great information
Sponsored Reviews is the highest paying of the sites that I write paid reviews for, but that is because there is often a great deal of effort that goes into creating each review. The advertisers place their requests on the sites marketplace and each reviewer bids for the assignment. Usually the advertiser rejects or accepts the bid in a matter of days. The advertiser showâ€™s what they are willing to pay for the review, which can be anywhere from $5.00 to $200.00. Sponsored Reviews takes a percentage of this payment and sends the rest to the reviewer via Paypal.
