It’s surprising to see how many people spend their time writing up their opinions and feelings on the latest Stephen King book, or the latest Red Hot Chilli Peppers album; and then just upload them to their personal blog or article website (like this one). Most people don’t realise that there is a website which actually pays people to write their opinion on thousands of products which are listed on their own website.
These product review websites are free to join, and they will pay you every time another member reads and rates one of your reviews. You can also be rewarded at the end of the month, when a selection of the month’s best reviews will earn a ‘premium fund’; usually around 5 or 10 pounds.
It’s probably quite hard to understand why these websites are paying you just to write your opinion on a product. It is also quite hard to explain why they do so, but I will try to do my best. By writing a review and leaving feedback for a product, the manufacturers are getting publicity and (usually) are getting some free praise. These reviews are used on the database of thousands of products, and they help web-browsers to form an opinion on the best products. The product review website would earn a great amount from commission bonuses; people go to the site, read a positive review and then click the link on the site directly to a shop (such as eBay or Amazon) and then they purchase that item. The product reviewing site will then earn a percentage of commission from this sale, and so this is how they can afford to pay its users for writing product reviews – everyone’s happy.
There aren’t many requirements to use these product-reviewing websites; you need to be at least 13 years old and need to be based in one of the supported countries. Obviously it would help if you have a passion for writing, and that you aren’t too impatient. To earn good money you need to write quality product reviews, and you need to build up a reputation on the website. The more users you get to read and rate your reviews, the more money you will earn. Therefore it pays to be popular.
These product reviewing websites already have some very well established communities on them, and this is done thanks to the points system. Every review you read and comment and every rating you receive will all earn you virtual community points. There is a colour scale which matches the points earned, and the more points you have the more important the colour is that you receive. For example, join the website and write a review and you will probably still be on a white colour. Write hundreds of reviews and you will no-doubt become a golden colour. Not only does this colour represent an active and respected user, but it will earn you a lot more money. People will be more likely to read and rate your reviews, thus earning you far more money then usual.
When your earnings reach a certain rate you can cash them in; through Amazon vouchers or you can get paid by BACS (a direct payment into your personal bank account). This is all completely safe and secure, as the websites have implemented some very strict security measures. The websites are also listed as some of the most popular, and gain millions of visitors every month. These figures show no signs of failing or dying down, so I highly recommend that you jump on the band wagon. Start writing your own opinion on any of the thousands of products listed – from TV’s to Shampoo to Internet Search Engines. Every individual is catered for, and even if it isn’t you can still submit another of your own products if they aren’t already listed. Join a product reviewing website today for free, and start getting paid to write product reviews – you can’t go wrong.
