Aside from the three most well known paid-posting services (Pay Per Post, Loud Launch, Review Me) there are heaps of other companies out there waiting to pay you money to write sponsored reviews – and what’s more, you don’t need any traffic to start using them to make money blogging. If you want to maximize your opportunities, start a number of small, side-project blogs about any topic, and update them every few days for at least three months – these can turn into gold mines in no time.
Most paid-posting services require your blog to be at least three months old, and while some, like Review Me, have certain requirements with regards to traffic and rank, the smaller services aren’t so strict and you can start making money right away.
If you haven’t yet, then check out Sponsored Reviews. Getting a blog accepted is easy, as all you need is at least 10 posts of 200 words or more. Once accepted, you can browse through pages of opportunities and bid on them. Not all your bids will be accepted, but there are so many opportunities that you will find something. Bid on everything you come across that requires only 50 or 100 words. Many reviews have no blog requirements. I have blogs with no traffic or rank, and I can still get reviews accepted and make money.
Providing you’re hosting your own blog, you can sign up with Blogsvertise. What’s more, your blog only needs to be 30 days old. You write reviews of at least 75 words containing three links, and they pay you generally between $5 and $10 for each post. There are very few requirements to be met, and you can submit all your blogs. Once the tasks start rolling in, so does the money!
I’ve written about Bloggerwave before. They are still receiving mixed reviews in the blogosphere and I’m not overly keen on them yet. At the moment, I have a number of blogs with Bloggerwave, but there are still just two opportunities available, and I’m only eligible for one. You can accept the same opportunity on multiple blogs, and the payout is a flat $10. I did get paid for one previous opportunity after emailing Bloggerwave and I am waiting on another payment.
Don’t forget about Blogging Ads too. Though they take up to six weeks to approve a blog, once they do there are heaps of opportunities to take. The only thing is that the ones I’ve seen only pay $5 each. Blogs must be three-months old and cached by Google.
A new paid-posting service I came across is Smorty. Blogs should be cached in Google and Yahoo, three-months old and have at least two posts per week. You can add as many blogs as you like, and each post earns you at least $6. It’s a good introduction to making money blogging and writing sponsored reviews.
There are other services out there for paid review, but these are the ones I’ve been using on low-traffic blogs. If you want to make money online, this is as good a place to start as any.
