I got an email today from Text-Link-Ads, saying that my site had been pre-approved for ReviewMe. I thought: now that’s the way to go, that is an awesome marketing action. They probably just automatically pre-approved all Text-Link-Ad approved sites, and sent out an email, easy to do, and that’s one hell of a quickstart for ReviewMe, very clever.
So I went and signed up, that was actually quite easy, it allows for payment through PayPal, and I immediatly got the chance to do a review of ReviewMe, to get me started and earn the first cash.
So let’s talk about the looks: it looks great, very web 2.0 and very clean. I haven’t had to think once about where I would find stuff, which shows that they’ve really thought it out well.
The signup was smooth as well, I simply added my blog’s URL and feed URL, categorized it, tagged it and gave a small description. Thanks to the pre-approval, that was it, and I could go about my business of accepting the first review.
Accepting that first review was easy as well, I could just click on it, see the guidelines, accept it, and then it said: you have 48 hours to complete your review. What you do next is write your review, feed the URL for your review back in to the system, and you’re done.
The content guidelines contained a very nice rule: “You must disclose that the post is a paid post in some way. Here are some ideas: “Sponsored Post:”, “The following is a paid review:” “Advertisement:”. I really digg that, no cheeky paid blogging: just be honest about it.
All in all, I’d have to give a big thumbs up to Patrick Gavin and his team for getting this done. I love it.
