Ok, so a bunch of you have asked me about the reviews I’ve been doing and how to join so this post is for you.
I love doing it! It’s perfect for someone like myself. I love shopping but can’t do much of it right now. I love getting deals, love writing, am quite opinionated and enjoy being the center of attention.
Currently, I write reviews for:
Tomoson is a favorite of mine. You apply for products to review and if selected post reviews on various social media sites.
AMZ Review Trader is similar to Tomoson. You apply for products to review and if selected post reviews on various social media sites.
EliteDealClub is addicting. You get a daily email at 6 am for sales that day. Sales go live at 7 am, 11 am and 5 pm pacific standard time. These items are heavily discounted or free in exchange for a review; but are limited in number so you have to act fast. Here’s an invite code if you want to join. elitedealclub.com/?invcode=V8H73bQ3
iLoveToReview sends you emails about products you can get for free ain exchange for an honest review.
Secret Deals Club also sends emails about products heavily discounted or free in exchange for a review.
My goal is in a year’s time to be reviewing (and keeping) cool items like cameras and making money off my blog that has hopefully more than the 5 followers I currently have. In order to do so I need to build up my influence on different social media sites.
This whole blogging thing is new to me. But hey, I’m learning and growing and I quite enjoy it. That’s why I joined Sverve a site that encourages you to “Share your blog posts. Endorse others. Learn from each other. Grow your network.”
I have a friend from Indiana who makes money from her blog, What’s Up Fagans. It’s her way to contribute financially and still be a SHM. Within 3 years she grew her blog into a money making tool, has spoken at public events and has been published on Amazon.
Katelyn suggested that I look into joining the Blogger2Businnes Facebook group. She said it’s a pretty good one and helpful for new bloggers. She also suggested applying to join the Kid Blogger Network. They also have a great facebook group.
Speaking of making money, I’ve found a few sites that join bloggers with advertisers.
Advertise on blogs Basically, advertisers buy blog reviews from popular blogs, hobby bloggers and maybe one of mine someday. I just activated mine so we’ll see how it goes. I’m hopeful. It will be pretty awesome if I can make a little dough for doing something I think is fun.
Blogsvertise is another site I joined recently which also promises to help you make money blogging. You sign up to blog for various advertisers or can make money by displaying ads and banners on your blog. It connects advertisers and bloggers. “For example, an advertiser who sells cleaning supplies contacts us and informs us as to what type of blog they would be interested in advertising on.”
iConnect promises to help bloggers monetize their blog with sponsorships, sponsored posts, or ambassadorships. Not sure if this is true yet but can’t hurt to try.
Like I said, I’m new to all this but like what I’ve learned so far. Hope you do too.
