I would like to share with you the secret of where I go to get my sponsored reviews assignments that pay up to as much as thousands of dollars per assignment. Without further ado, here they are.
Sponsored Reviews - One thing I really like about Sponsored Reviews is the fact that the approval process is almost instantaneous. All you have to do is to register as a blogger, register your blog and after that you can start sifting through the assignments to bid for them. All the advertisers here are genuinely looking for blogs to review their products and many of them have good budgets - $20 upwards. Some go as high as a thousand dollars although most are in the $20 - $100 range. How high you can go will depend on how much traffic your blog enjoys and what niche your blog is serving.
From my experience, the niches that pay best are - auto, entertainment, business, finance, technology. It is very easy to make a couple of hundreds here weekly if you are not too pricey and your blog enjoys decent traffic. Sponsored Reviews is prompt on payment and pays through PayPal.
Social Spark - Social Spark is quite a different vehicle from Sponsored Reviews. There are more choices to monetize from as it also offers CPA and CPC opportunities besides sponsored reviews. The sponsored reviews here usually have higher requirements but some of them pay very well - occasionally up to the tune of a couple of thousand dollars.
Signing up for the network and waiting to be approved however can be a pain as it is quite a lengthy process. You need to drop codes into your blog and wait for the network to review your blog before they will approve it. Only then can you look for opportunities. The website has a robust backed system and keeps its opportunities well categorized, so you will be able to look for assignments quite easily. One problem is that the high paying assignments are usually very competitive as there are no lack of top bloggers here. But if you persevere, you will get good assignments finally. Social Spark is also prompt on payment and uses PayPal too.
