What is SponsoredReviews Website?

Sponsored Reviews Website

First of all let me make it clear the meaning of term paid reviews or sponsored reviews, which will be used quite often in this post. When we accept some money, gifts or some freebies type to write about a website, its products or services, that will be known as paid review.

SponsoredReviews.com is a marketplace for buying and selling sponsored reviews on a blog. As an advertiser, you can advertise your services with the blogs of your choice by paying some money for being reviewed honestly by blog owners with SponsoredReviews website. And as a blogger, you are able to make money online for doing your regular blogging activities. So as a blogger, you will not be putting much effort in earning money with SponsoredReviews. You can get paid for the topics of your choice by writing paid reviews with Sponsored Reviews website.

Register As a Blogger With SponsoredReviews

You need to sign up as a Blogger with this website to start making money writing reviews for their advertisers. But there are some conditions you must satisfy to get your blog accepted into their marketplace:

  1. You must have an active blog with 3 months age (minimum) and 10 posts high quality posts published (minimum)
  2. Your blog should be in index in all major search engines
  3. Your blog should contain original contents only
  4. If you have blog with good page rank, Alexa ranking and organic traffic, your chances of being accepted into their marketplace are quite high
  5. And most importantly, you should have an active Paypal account to accept your earnings from them

If you are fulfilling above conditions, you should sign up for a Blogger account with SponsoredReviews.com instantly.

How to Make Money Online As Blogger

Once your blog is accepted into SponsoredReviews marketplace, now its time to make some fast money while writing paid reviews for advertisers available on this website. You can edit your blog details by browsing Manage Blogs section from your SponsoredReviews.com blogger account. You can change your blog details, category, pricing etc in this section. There are two ways, you can actually earn money with this website:

  1. There are some advertisers who used to browse blogs mentioned in their advertising categories on SponsoredReviews.com. And when an advertiser finds your blog good enough to advertise their websites, they will offer you money-making opportunity in the form of paid reviews. And when you get such requests, you have to decide whether you want to write for that advertiser or not.There can be many factors you take into consideration while making such decisions like:
      • Are you writing about a website related to your blog niche
      • What kind of money is being offered to your review
      • Advertiser’s website popularity etc

     

    Most important thing, I would recommend you noticing is whether the advertiser website is related to your blog niche o not. If it’s related simply accept the opportunity and if not, reject the paid review offer from that advertiser. As a blog owner, you should only accept those opportunities which will be liked by your blog readers. And you should write honest reviews about the website for which you paid for. Advertisers also want honest reviews and feedbacks about their products and services.

  2. Second options will be using the bidding system available on SponsoredReviews.com website. Once your website is accepted into this network, go to Find Advertisers section in your account and start making bids on available opportunities. While making bids, you should make sure that you are sending bids for opportunities relevant to your blog niche only. Suppose you are running a travel blog, you should accept paid review in this or similar categories only.

So you should keep browsing all opportunities available and keeps on sending bids for relevant offers only. By writing for relevant websites, you will be able to get some quality posts on your blog and will also get paid for the same. You may lose some of your blog readers if you start writing paid reviews about websites that are no way related to your blog topics. And when making bids you should keep your prices to reasonable otherwise you will not get much money making opportunities. In some cases, you will receive counter pricing bid from advertisers, you can accept them, deny them or send your bid back with another price.

Once your bid is accepted by an advertiser, it’s time to write paid review for that advertiser’s website. So you should check that opportunity and advertiser requirements. Once you have gone though the requirements, you should start working on its content. You will have one-week time available to submit a winning opportunity. Once you have made the post live on your blog, share its URL on SponsoredReviews.com website. If everything goes fine as per the requirements, your review post will be accepted, otherwise, you will need to make the required changes.

Revenue Ratio

SponsoredReviews.com has been keeping a ratio of 50:50 with all bloggers in its marketplace. Suppose you end up writing for an opportunity of $50, you will be getting $25, as your earning into your account and rest of $25 will be going into their account.

Payment Options

Currently, they are making payments to all its bloggers for their earnings into their Paypal accounts. So you need to have a Paypal account to transfer your earned money. And they are sending payments automatically in every two weeks time to all the eligible bloggers.

    I have tried one such website webtrafficcontrol.com in the past and followed the rules, But nothing appear on my blog or they have not ordered even a single post in my blog. so think popular blog with a lots of traffic is the key if you want to earn something from sites like this.

      If your blog get approved in paid review accepting websites like SponsoredReviews, ReviewMe, Linkworth and blogsvertise, you should be able to make some money. Website that you shared Rakesh, will help you make money through accepting guest post from advertisers. But there are very few advertiser in different niche who are aware about the concept of guest blogging. Sponsored Reviews has a big list of advertisers, so once you are accepted there, you will be able to make some earnings with them

    Is the amount of a bid dependent on the reputation of a blog? Also what is the minimum requirement to get accepted to them ?

    Reply
    • Anil Agarwal

      Ya amount of bid totally depends upon your blog popularity like your blog page rank, alexa rankings, RSS subscribers count and technorati rankings etc.

    Anil Sir,

    1. Is it legal to receive money to my State Bank of India Account from foreign countries via Paypal account?
    I had seen lots of peoples talking that Paypal is illegal in India.

    2. Is sponsoredrewiews, socialspark like sites are legal and safe to use in India and earn money?

    3. If you suggest me then only I will open account in Paypal and receive money. So please give me suggestion.

    • Anil Agarwal

      You can directly deposit funds from your Paypal account to SBI account. You are totally safe with them. These are all legal websites. There is no harm in trying sponsoredreviews types of websites for earning money from your blog.

      If you are thinking of making money from any of such website there will always be some risk involved. And to get rid of this risk, you should aim at adding nofollow tag against all links you will be adding on your blog through these networks. Even if you are doing a paid post, try to keep the advertisers links as nofollow.

    I have tried sponsored review earlier and bid on many opportunities but got nothing. I think my stats was not up to the mark at that time.

    I’m glad you mentioned Sponsored Review’s outrageous 50% fee that they take from you, I’ve been using them since 2007 and back then it was only 10%, then it increased to 35% and now it has been increased to 50%, this has certainly put me off, especially as I’m doing all the work!
