Earn Money Online By Writing Sponsored Reviews

There are many ways to make money online. Whether it is Google Adsense ads, Direct Banner ads, In-Text links ads or even by writing Sponsored reviews. Sponsored or Paid review is quite a popular method for bloggers to earn money online. All you have to do is write a blog post of around 300-500 words (depending upon the various terms and conditions of the advertiser) & get paid in return. The advertiser in return will get a dofollow link to their product website,and also traffic from your site.
Check out Top 5 Online Marketplace that connects bloggers directly with advertisers who pays you to write blog posts about their products, websites and services on your own blog.

Earn Money Online By Writing Sponsored Reviews

1) Sponsoredreviews

The most popular marketplace that connects bloggers and advertisers. The best part of the website is that you are allowed to write articles about new products in your own tone. Even constructive criticism is allowed while writing Sponsored reviews. It works both ways: Advertisers search for bloggers which best match their requirements to write blog posts and you can also directly E-mail advertisers to write reviews about their products. And you can always decide the product on which you want to write to maintain the quality of your website. You can earn anywhere from $5 to $1000 per blog post. And If you are a major site with high traffic, you might be able to earn more.

2) Review Me

Another great marketplace where you can earn anywhere between $20 to $200 for writing product reviews. The process is pretty much similar to Sponsored reviews. But here advertisers search for publishers that best match their requirements and then offer those publishers Sponsored posting opportunities.

3) Payperpost

In Payperpost, bloggers search for open opportunities in which their blogs qualify for and if the opportunity is secured, then they write blog posts and get paid in return.

4) SocialSpark

SocialSpark is an amazing marketplace for Paid reviews. It is created by Izea.com, the same company that created PayPerPost. The main goal of SocialSpark is to create a “full disclosure” sponsored review system, which means it is disclosed that it’s a paid post and links are nofollow.
So, if you are looking to earn money by writing Paid reviews without compromising your Page Rank, then this is the best option for you.
And there are also sponsored videos and social media campaigns on the website. Even sites with low traffic can make good income through Socialspark.

5) Payu2blog

Least popular among all and works in pretty much the same way as Review Me.

best google adsense alternatives

Google Adsense is the best contextual advertising network in the online world today. Many bloggers are making thousands of dollars every month from Google Adsense. But the biggest problem lies in the fact that it is not very easy to get your account approve for Google Adsense and you can also get permanently banned for violating their TOS.

So today, I have compiled a list of 5 Best Advertising alternatives to Google Adsense. Though you won’t be able to make as much money as you can make from Adsense but at least you would be able to make some money online. And you can also try options like In-Text advertising or direct banner ads even if you’re using Adsense to increase your income.
