Paid to review
One method of blog mentization is paid review. Join to paid review company such SR or BV and if approved you can search for reviewing job. The review is placed on your blog.
Some of my friend made routin income from this method. I wanna join also but always ignored by review company :(
key is, never start a website just for paid reviews..
if you own your own website and just posting + updating it for fun, the paid review jobs will come by itself :D
There are many factors that you should consider before joining such sites:
-Niche (Are you in a niche where people will buy reviews.
And you should always keep such reviews in limits.
To be approved you need to have a good blog with a proper domain, not a free domain.
There is some free domain blog accepted for this program, but the offer for review job will be less than if you using a paid domain.
About PR, yeah there is many people said that PR will get dropped if we join PTR. but i think if you post mire natural content beside review content, blog PR will be safe.
Funnily enough, I only commented on a blog post about this just now, so it's fresh in my mind ;)
I feel that paid reviews aren't good. I mean, yesterday I was going to do a paid review for a product (that was actually a pretty good product), but I suddenly thought 'what is my blog really for?'. Well, it's for the readers, so I had to think whether doing this product review would be beneficial for my readers, and I concluded it wouldn't. Because of that, I decided not to do the review.
I think if you review products that benefit your readers, then go for it. Reviewing things you've never used is not the best business practice, but some people make quite a lot of money off paid to post sites (that's why they exist). Have I considered it? Of course. I hadn't had any blogs that were good enough to get accepted in the past, but I don't think PTR has a major ethical dilemma if you assess your values.
The best solution for this problem is, to receive review offer which have same topic with your blog. It's benefical for reader and also for you.
It will be hard to find a offer then, but the price offered will be higher than if you receive unrelated review topic offer.
When you say it's beneficial to my reader, I think what I have to ask myself is 'will my readers actually buy this product?' Honestly, most of the people who comment on my blog already know a fair bit about making money online as they run their own blogs, so it seems a bit stupid to try and sell them products like that.
I also have to think about the comment count. Usually I get 20-30 comments per post, so I have to think whether people will comment on a post about a product, and most of the time I think 'no'.
In way to solve this, if you still wanna try PTR, you can build one new blog which purposed for reviewing only. So, even it's no visitor, etc...and as long as you can get PR (for PTR, i recommend at least PR2), you'll get earn. About there is no visitor, there is no comment, etc....it's become no neccesary since the purpose of the blog is for earn, right?
I recommend blogvertise for you who wanna try PTR business. Sponsoredreview is just a bit strict
PTR sites have restrictions on this. The majority of your content has to be unpaid. So, building a site strictly for reviews would probably be a fail.
