If you’re jumping into the blogsophere in hopes of making money, you’re in luck; millions of bloggers have found success with creating a community around a niche topic they’re passionate about, and selling advertising space, text link ads, and other revenue generators to turn their blogging words into cash. Sites such as ReviewMe.com are one of the highest paying opportunities for bloggers. While you do need a high traffic blog to get started, it’s just one incentive to build your blog and start reviewing products for payouts that range between $20-$200 per post.
How ReviewMe.com Works
ReviewMe.com works on the basis of word-of-mouth advertising. Advertisers list their new products, service,s and opportunities on the ReviewMe.com site and look for bloggers who can write about each item. Your responsibility as a blogger is to simply write a review and post it on your blog. Once accepted into the publisher network, your blog will be listed on the ReviewMe Marketplace, and you can take a look at the listings available after signing up on the site.
There are three types of advertiser promotions available: reviews, offer reviews, and advertorials. The basic review is a general outline of what the product or service is, links to the product, and usually a picture. Offer reviews are focused on a special offer, similar to an announcement for a new product launch or service; advertisers are interested in creating a buzz in this case, and it’s your responsibility to simply get the word out. Advertorials are a fairly new feature to ReviewMe.com, and involve click tracking and impressions from a specific ad posted on your blog. These are the highest paying of the three types, and can also help improve SEO on yoru blog.

If you have a blog in any of these categories with a steady amount of traffic and even a subscriber list, your chances of getting into the ReviewMe.com network are significantly higher than other niche subjects.
After approval, you’ll have access to the Advertiser Clearinghouse where you can view campaigns that might be a good fit for your audience. With the ReviewMe publisher system, advertisers choose specific blogs they want to use for reviews, so all you need to do is wait for an offer with these.
Other Things You Should Know
ReviewMe.com does have specific guidelines for reviews and advertorials. All reviews need to be a minimum of 200 words and include both link text and the product URL in the post. All posts must be checked for grammar and spelling errors, and cannot contain affiliate links. For advertorials, you’ll also need to indicate that the post is a sponsored post, and this needs to be included in the title of the post itself.
ReviewMe.com is a great opportunity for maximizing revenue from your blog, but posting commercial messages will require you to consider your audience. The last thing you want to do is turn off readers simply because they feel like you’re bombarding them with advertisements.
