If you can write 100 or more words saying
why you like or dislike a product or service, etc then you
can be paid to do it. There are now several companies
offering good consumer reviews of all kinds of products and
services and they will pay you to write your own opinion.
Epinions.com was the first to really exploit
this brilliant idea that is such a win-win solution for the
company and the public alike. You can write your opinions
of thousands of products in hundreds of categories and can
also write 'editorials' on topics that range from parenting
issues (such as bullying) to music or books (has it all got
too commercial and less about art?).
Epinions is best for US citizens or residents,
and you currently have to mail them (snail mail) with your
details to claim your royalties. They also have a great
program to offer you a share of the banner earnings when people
enter through your own 'partner' site.
I personally earnt well over $300 very easily
by writing some 60 opinions about products and ideas I found
easy to write about.
Dooyoo.co.uk (and dooyoo.com) are the main
European entry in this field and, in my opinion, are the best
all-round company. I find them commited and responsive to
the members, which is not the case everywhere.
The 'community' aspects are as strong here
as anywhere you'll find, and reflected well within the community
forum attached to this site.
The payment (earnings) rates are very good
indeed and significantly higher when all factors are considered
than at any of the main rivals at this time. If
you were only going to join one of these schemes, then this
is the one I'd recommend.
