Before we start here are a couple of common terms that you need to understand;

Google AdSense: Google has an advertising system called AdSense that places ads on your site.. Every time that a visitor to your site clicks on one of these ads you get paid a very small percentage – and I mean small….. as in single figure cents. Most banner advertising is done using AdSense.

Pay Per View (PPV): Some article sites will pay you by the number of people who view your review or article.

Traffic: The number of people who view your page, site or blog.

How do we make money writing reviews?

Three US sites that will pay you to write reviews for them are;.

reviewstream.com
sharedreviews.com
epinions.com
Helium.com and Associated Content.com will also pay US citizens for high quality articles.
Now be warned that the pay is not great, around $2-$3 per article although some sites do run a performance based bonus scheme based on the number of views that you article gets.

Blogging is a great way to start to make money writing reviews. By setting up your own blog you get the opportunity to make money writing reviews three ways;

1) Allow AdSense on your blog. Every time that someone clicks on one of the ads on your page you will get paid a certain percentage.
2) Sponsored reviews – If you have a blog that is old enough and getting good traffic then there are programs that will ‘sponsor’ you to write about their product.
3) Affiliate Marketing – By being an affiliate of the product that you are reviewing you get the opportunity to earn far more than being sponsored or getting a one off payment.

When you are an affiliate for a product you are able to write your review and include links directly to the sales page of the product you are promoting. Whenever anyone clicks on your link, goes to the sales page and buys the product you get a percentage of the sale. The percentage of the sale price can vary from 5% to 75% depending on the product.

This is a fantastic way to make money writing reviews because of the lasting effect of our work, the freedom that we can enjoy by writing about products that we really like and the residual income that can come from it.
