Disclaimer: I am getting paid to post this review.
I got an email today encouraging me to sign up for "reviewme" a new service offered from the folks over at TextLinkAds. I like TextLinkAds and the guy that runs it, so I thought I would give ReviewMe a shot. I don't KNOW Patrick Gavin, but I read his blog and I've heard him on a podcast or two and I get the impression that he is a nice guy and a straight shooter. It was easy as pie to sign up and you are allowed to enter in six blogs per your account. So, if you are like me and own MORE than six you need to think about your strategy a bit. Depending on traffic and topic you get paid between $20.00 and $200.00 per post. I submitted 3 blogs -- 2 got $20.00 and 1 got $30.00. None of these blogs are runaway huge traffic mongers, but they do get about 50 - 200 uniques a day and they are all about a year old. Is that good? I never know. Anyway, seems easy so far. Posts must be 200 words and the thing I like about it is that you MUST label your post that it is a paid post. Is that how the rest of the Pay per Posts companies work? I am still a newbie in this PayPerPost space...and don't plan to do it too much cause it seems kind of creepy in a dishonest sneaky kind of way. But the fact that the ReviewMe site requires that you lay it all out there and own the fact that your are selling your blog's soul seems to make it okay in my book.
