The Good And The Bad Of Sponsored Reviews

money makersSince I have no more PR to lose (unless negative PR will be invented by some genius mind), as even my last 2 points were gone with the wind, I want to tell you what I think about another online money maker, SponsoredReviews.

Likes:

  1. Fast approval of your application
  2. Not very harsh conditions for blogs approval:
    • Your blog must contain at least 10 posts with 200 words of unique content each.
    • Your blog must not be completely automated or appear to be created solely for search engine traffic.
    • Your blog must have at least a 3:1 ratio of non-paid to paid content.
    • Your blog must have a minimum number of incoming links and traffic to qualify.
    • Your blog must have a professional appearance.
  3. Possibility to submit more than one blog from the very beginning
  4. Possibility to set your price per post as you wish
  5. Seven days timeframe to submit a review after your inquiry has been approved by the advertiser
  6. Very fast approval of posts
  7. Payments are done bi-weekly, so you never have to wait more that 14 days from the moment your post has been approved until you get paid

Dislikes:

  1. Advertisers seem to be sleeping (at least most of them), as very few actually answer to bloggers’ inquiry to write reviews
  2. The fact that once enrolled in the system, a blogger still has to apply for each individual opportunity and wait for the advertiser to approve or reject the application

Despite the fact that there are so many positive things to be said about SponsoredReviews, the negatives make overall earnings with this program to be quite low, and highly uncertain.

There is also an affiliate program which pays you $5 for each blogger enrolled under your ID, and up to $175 for each advertiser which joins the program via your referral.

2010 update: I no longer use such methods of earning money online, so take everything you read here with a grain of salt. It’s history, that’s the only reason why I don’t delete this post.

  1. Oh lord, I didn’t know your PR also got affected! that is severe! I need to look into SR more, I didn’t read their ad aff is $175.. thats some good money! too bad they aren’t keeping publishers happy! I submitted quite a few reviews to them and none has been rejected or approved for weeks now! so that sucks for sure!
