These sites that match bloggers with advertisers are growing in number. Among the better known are
- Review Me.com.
- SponsoredReviews.com, a product of 360 Enterprises, will make its debut soon.
Word-Of-Mouth has a proven record of being the BEST kind of advertising there is ! These new sites broker payments to bloggers to review products in their posts. The bloggers are required to disclose that they are getting paid to post the reviews. None of the sites allows marketers to review copy before it is posted.
Trying to find the best on the web is liek looking for a pin in a haystack, so blog reviews are seen as a way for advertisers to monetize their Web site traffic, generate viral marketing and get some much-needed feedback on how their products are faring in the marketplace.
ReviewMe, which debuted in November, currently has in its network 5,500 bloggers, who have written approximately 750 paid reviews. Advertisers browse ReviewMe.com's marketplace of blogs and purchase reviews from what they deem relevant bloggers. The bloggers must write a minimum of 200 words per review. They get paid $40 to $500 per post. Once a review is completed, ReviewMe.com splits the revenue equally with the blogger.
PayPerPost has in its network 14,000 bloggers, including "high-traffic bloggers and low-end, smaller audiences from social networks," according to Ted Murphy, founder and CEO. "Our focus is on real people who don't necessarily blog for a living but are passionate about a particular subject." PayPerPost's bloggers concentrate on technology, marketing, health care, entertainment and finance.
So hone your writting skills and start blogging about something you are passionate about ! Then get paid for doing it !
