Review Me

There's a new buzz sweeping the blogosphere regarding a new site called Review Me. I first read about it through Maudie, then BG and Scurvy. I decided to follow in the footsteps of those three wise bloggers and give it a whirl. It sounds like it could be a pretty cool gig and, at the very least, give me something to write about when I'm lacking in material. For now, let me give you the skinny on Review Me as I'm to understand.

Review Me connects companies who want their product reviewed with bloggers who are willing to take the time to review the product on their blog. In return, Review Me gets a cut from the company and then passes along a portion of the bling to the blogger who does the review. That looks like three happy campers to me. Of course there will be times when the blogger gives a negative review, but that is to be expected. Companies should view negative reviews as a chance to get feedback on where they or their product could improve.

As for this particular blog post, which is technically a review of
Review Me, I have to say so far so good. Signing up and creating an account took about 2 minutes and I immediately found out what I will make per review. Each month your payment per review can increase or decrease based on your rankings (Alexa and Technorati) as well as the number of RSS feed subscriptions for your blog.

Since this is my first review, I can't really speak as to the
Review Me customer support and payment processing, but we'll just have to see. I may have to give a follow-up review to let you know if it is worth giving it a go. There are plenty of things to learn about how this will work, so for now I will just have to take a wait and see approach. In the meantime, swing on over to their site and give it a gander. I didn't notice a referral or affiliate program, but if you come across one, tell them TripJax sent ya.

Oh, one more thing. If you sign up and start reviewing, be sure that your reviews include an acknowledgement that the post is a paid advertising. Sort of like this...

So tell me, does ReviewMe require you to give them your SSN? I saw that on the sign up form as a non-required field, but in the "?" link next to it, it says that it is required to get paid. So with no other previous experience with this company - did you give them your SSN?

Looks cool, my blog was rejected. Not enough traffic. Come visit every day!

Tell your friends!

I signed up but didn't entry my SSN (yet). I really don't believe in giving out my SSN to anyone other than the Government. Keep us posted when you review something and how quickly you get paid.

Oh, and Chipper, I'll give my SSN to anyone EXCEPT for the government!

This is just a fancy way for companies to buy links - for SEO. They could care less what you say.
