We all know that every blogger wants to make money from his blog. Bloggers are very good at doing reviews then why not make some profit from this opportunity and do reviews for money. Sponsored reviews are those reviews which are written by bloggers for money. To make money by doing sponsored reviews your blog has to receive decent traffic to be eligible for doing sponsored reviews. To get higher payment your blog should have high traffic and a loyal readership.
Some bloggers do not participate in paid reviews and product inclusion because it can be misleading if you do not state that you are being paid for your testimonial or recommendation. If you feel as though reviewing products or recommending them to your readers without disclosing that you are being paid is dishonest, then the practice is not for you.
On the other hand, if you think the products you review are worthwhile and are worthy of mentioning in your blog, what better way to make money then sharing these products with your readers.
There are a few different websites that will connect you with companies that will pay you to include their product or service in your blog. The pay ranges per assignment and you may be required to write a few sentences about a specific product or a few paragraphs, or even a whole blog entry.
Generally your blog has to receive a good deal of traffic to get accepted by these websites, and depending on how much work you do for them payment can be slight or substantial.
Payment for sponsored reviews can range from 50 dollars to 2000 dollars according to your review’s quality and your blog’s traffic.
