Have you ever heard about paid review? If you've never heard it, maybe you just come back from moon. It's a great deal today. Many bloggers all around the world are making bigger money than their Google AdSense's check using this program.
Paid review is simply explained as another affiliate program between blogger and ads agent/broker. Ads agent acts as a mediator between bloggers and advertisers. The money circle in this program is quite simple. Advertiser pays ads agent to buy some blog posts reviewing their products or services, than ads agent asks bloggers in their membership to write the review. When the review has been posted, bloggers will get paid.
There are so many sites offering this program. Each site has different rules and requirements to accept a blog. But, as they need as many blogger as they can attract to join, most of these sites even accept PR 0 blogs. Of course, the higher the PR your blog has, the higher money you'll earn and more jobs coming to you. One or two site(s) has strong requirements and can only accepting PR 1+ blogs and/or having their own domain name.
How much money you can earn with this program? A PR 0 blog will be paid $2-10 per review, PR 1 and higher will earn much more money writing the same 300 words review. Yes, it's easy. Just write a review with at least three links to the advertiser's site, post it on the blog, submit the URL of the review to the site where you've joined, then dollars credited to your account in a minute. If you could manage to write a $10 review a day, in the end of the month you'll earn $300. For newbie bloggers that can do nothing to increase their AdSense earning, even earn $100/month writing reviews is a good deal. Bloggers with higher PR of course will gain better as I saw an advertiser offering $200 to PR 6 + blog to write a 300 words review about their service.
Well, when you think Google AdSense is the hardest way to get money online, then you should think about paid review. But, never join to a paid review program just for money. You should consist to your blog readers as well your contents. Don't let your credibility fall down to the earth by writing a review that irrelevance to your niche. Yes, you'll earn money posting the review, but your readers would leave you because they know that making money is number one for you. Just think about it, your reader is everything. Don't annoy them with an out-of-topic paid review posted on your blog. Then, your content is a king. You can still earn money writing review without losing your readers or breaking your blog consistency. The key you need is, be selective.
Happy earning, bloggers...
