How To Get Paid For Writing Reviews Online

If you enjoy writing reviews, you can turn this little passion into a money making hobby. No, you won’t be able to retire rich after writing reviews, but I’ve been able to make as much as $245 in a single month for writing only 34 reviews. The trick is simple – write only about what you know and know where to submit your reviews to.

SoftwareJudge.Com accepts only software related reviews for products listed at the site. I’ve accidentally stumbled upon the site after reading a forum discussion on the topic. The site claims to pay as much as 50 dollars per review, however I got only $14 dollars for my first review. If you want to try you luck with SoftwareJudge, make sure you read the rules first.

Epinions.Com is probably the oldest and the best known review site that has been paying me and hundreds of other reviewers for years. The most important thing to know about Epinion is the fact that the pay is determined by the number of pageviews your review generates, which most of the time means you get nothing. Still, Epinions.Com has thousands of products to review, so you may as well give it a try. Just be aware of the fact that ever review gets read by a moderator, so if you try to submit a review that’s not yours, you’ll be banned for life. Oh, and you need to register first, before you get to read all the details.

DigitalPoint makes turning your writing into dollars even easier. You don’t need to review anything. DititalPoint forums are based on a profit sharing principle. Here is what it means. DigitalPoint makes its money by displaying AdSense ads. If you create a topic and participate in discussion, half the ad revenue is yours. In fact it’s a little bit more complicated than that. You have to have your own AdSense account. 50% of the ad revenue will go to DigitalPoint, the other half is yours. I’ve been participating in this forum actively in the past. My monthly record is 40 dollars. If you are a forum addict, this might me just your cut of tea. However, you’ll need to setup your account first.
