I am a Chinese. And being Chinese we have our quirky ways of doing things. I priced my PR5/10 blog at USD128 for per paid post. Therefore, I don’t have the faintest idea why some people will price theirs at USD20. I really am puzzled with their suggestion but I dislike butting in with my two cents. So, I just walk away.
Previously, I had posted that as paid post bloggers, we have to treat our money making method as a business. Do not undercut, do not over price and do not short sell yourself. But I suppose many people have unknowingly done that. I know there are hundreds of people who place a USD5 per post button on their site. I think that’s pretty cheap. Another huge majority charge only USD10. For that price, they can get them from the marketplace. Why undercut and short sell yourself?
Guess what? SponsoredReviews has just place a notice on their blog :
We will be rejecting new blogs,sending warnings, and suspending bloggers we find advertising prices for reviews on their sites that are significantly lower (20% or more) then what is listed in SponsoredReviews.
In other words, if you list your price in SponsoredReviews as $20 but show a price of $5 or $10 on your site, we will consider that a violation of this policy.
I am glad SponsoredReviews take this step.
So, if you write for other paid post company (that triple P), then please make sure you check that your button is not showing a price that is dirt cheap and you went to bid for a much higher price on SponsoredReviews. I tell you, if I am an advertiser, I will be disgusted to see the huge differences in the rates. In the long run, it spells doom for all the bloggers because advertisers will take advantage of us. Inflate the price you have on your blog to something much higher than what you can easily grab from the marketplace (mass production).
BTW, I have just received another USD100+ from SponsoredReviews and have five more big money campaigns to post. Tralalala, SponsoredReviews is great.
