Why I like SponsoredReviews?


The above is the twice weekly payment I received from SponsoredReviews.com. So far, I can count myself lucky with SponsoredReviews.com because I have a constant supplies of assignments to review.

Why I get assignments from SponsoredReviews?

1) I have many blogs in different categories;

2) SponsoredReviews advertisers are usually concentrated on travel, women, parenting and food industries and these are very huge industries, in case you do not know.

3) I am one dead persistent, pesky blogger who never give up. I login twice a day, bid and counter-bid;

4) I am immune to rejections and I got many blogs to try my luck;

5) My blogs template are decently presentable (ok, very impressive actually) and attractive to advertisers;

6) My blogs’ topics are mostly niche and I write very well;

7) I am one lucky blogger;

What I like about SponsoredReviews;

1) The ability to check out advertisers before I offer to write for them and set my own price;

2) The thrills of telling advertisers who want to pay me USD5 (and I only get USD3.25) for 300 words on a PR4/10 to go fly kite; (ok, not really but I do get to decline and it is empowering)

3) The quality of their advertisers; (well so far, so good, no sleazy sites)

4) The ease of moving around their dashboard;

5) No frustrations of fighting with other people to grab an opp aka no stress;

6) Payout is good as I usually get between USD15 to USD50 per assignment; (my lowest price on my blogspot blog is USD20)

But I wish [tag]SponsoredReviews[/tag] will give me some referral. This is a good way to create publicity and also draw more advertisers to them.

Tip for the day : AVOID doing SEO companies reviews if you are at their mercy with bans and benches. You know what I mean? These are the most pain-in-the-ars* advertisers because they think they are kings and will be very critical of our reviews. Sometimes I feel like telling them, “Hey, take this five bucks and the door is over there.”

    At first I kept getting rejections, then thanks to yr article about shameless promotion and singing own praises, I rewrote the descrisption of my site and started getting more bids. I am quite happy even PR3 blogspot got a few $20 bids through.:-)

    Now I bid according to words. If they want more words, I bid higher. I don’t take pr into account anymore. last time I set different prices according to PR. No success.
    Now, if one blog is successful the other blog will also get the review, because price is same.

    Thanks for the review.

    As for our referral program, I know we keep saying we are getting around to it, but we keep finding ourselves busy on building new features.

    Our new features are one of the reasons that the number of opportunities and advertisers is increasing.

    We appreciate the unsolicited review though, we promise we will have a referral program someday. Most of the programming is done, we just want to make sure to take care of our current advertisers and bloggers before we go and overload the system with new ones.

    Thanks again.

    I just signed up with SponseredReviews.com as an advertiser, and so far I like what I see. Apparently they like you too, they linked to you from their July 27 blog post. Congrats.

    my 1st online paid to blog is come from SR… due to i have low ranking, i just only get low bid only…

    The one thing that I don’t like about them is that you don’t have any control over the timescale that you have to write the review.

    For instance, I have about 30 current bids with them and if I got them all in one day, I don’t know that I’d manage to write all of them in the five days or so that you get to do them. OK, in reality I’m not likely to get all or even most of them but in theory as I learn from the bidding results I will eventually get a much higher percentage of them.

    Also, there’s no way to say “I’m on holiday”. So, if I go off for a week I could find that some of those I’ve bid on a while ago have arrived and expired before I get back.

    What I would like is for them to tighten up on the time that the advertisers get to respond to bids too. We get five days to write it once the bid is accepted but they sometimes take weeks to respond to a bid.

    Well good, you are really going good but let me tell stop you on one line “so far, so good, no sleazy sites” well I can remember there was one adult dvd site advertiser ! Anyways we got lots of other choice, so that doesn’t matter. I really feel bad when some advertiser counter bid to $5 (yes we get some 3.25) for a 300 word post.
