For a while, I thought that where ReviewMe is concerned, my hope of earning money is dead. However, I have been lucky this month. So far, I have received four offers from ReviewMe totalling USD190. A review on my personal blog and food blog is USD100 and I received 50% of it, which is USD50.
Screenshot taken from my ReviewMe dashboard showing what I had written in July.
Before I go on, let me remind you guys that you should log into your account every day because I have failed to receive any emails from ReviewMe. Previously, the notification emails went into my spam box but lately, there isn’t any mail at all. I am lucky to found the offers a few hours before they expired.
So far, I have done quite a number of [tag]ReviewMe[/tag] which pays well. I also did take some of those USD5 to USD12.50 reviews when other paid post companies are low in their opportunities. ReviewMe actually gave out only a limited numbers of reviews we can take a month. If I am not mistaken, it is only 10 posts and after that, you have to wait for the following months to write again.
The new product from ReviewMe is the Advertorials. Basically, what this means to us bloggers is to copy and paste whatever is provided and post it on our blog. It is a no-brainer way to earn money. Personally, if the money is good, I will take it. I mean, who cares right, no work but still earning money.
But on the other hand, I hope it won’t become a flood of copy n paste rubbish on the internet. I will hate to see the same thing I have on my blog appearing in other blogs as well. We can be penalised to have mirror images, isn’t it?
However, I am not too worried over this because not many bloggers have luck with ReviewMe. Only selected few bloggers will tell you that ReviewMe works for them. I am not sure why but I have a feeling the advertisers on ReviewMe are more picky. They should because they are paying big money for our reviews. I can know when some visit my blogs through my stats counter and if they come at the right moment, they do place order with me. Right time = when my main page is not loaded with other paid posts.

Very Cool. So far no offers from ReviewMe for my blogs. I did try lowering my price, but then changed it back.
So far Text-Link-Ads works best on my site. Less work too.
