I just signed for the new service called ReviewMe as a blogger, the website has been launched officially on 9th November’2006 and I think like me lots of blogger’s would be happy to get it as quick as possible. The membership is absolutely free. Each blogger can add upto 6 blogs to their account.
Basically, it works like this… as a blogger you can get paid for reviewing Advertisers products or services on their blog and get paid for it. You can also signup just as an Advertiser only and choose other blogger’s to review your product or service.
The guidelines are quiet simple, each review should be of minimum 200 words and review post must be labelled as a “paid” or “sponosored” post somewere in the blog. The payout for the reviews will in the range of $20 to $200 (USD), which is quiet good. One another good thing with this service is that, Advertisers who request to review their products or services cannot expect a positive review always just because they are paying for the reviews. The blogger has all the freedom to give their honest opinion (positive or negative) related to the Advertisers products or services and can get paid for it without any fear. Overall I like this service and recommend other blogger’s to join ReviewMe.
