Aside from advertising and affiliate programs, another popular blog monetization method is to write blog sponsored reviews for any one of the many websites that pay you for blogging. Below are several of the most popular blog-sponsored review sites that pay, and start earning money from your blog.

What We Like
  • Quick verification process.

  • PayPal payments.

  • Bid your own prices.

  • Referral opportunities.

What We Don't Like
  • Can't filter bid suggestions.

  • Must sign up with an account to learn any information about the site.

PayPerPost is one of the most popular blog-sponsored review sites available. Blog writers are called Posties, and those Posties join the PayPerPost publishers network to search for open opportunities that their blogs qualify for. When an opportunity is secured, the blogger writes the post based on the instructions provided and is paid based on the current PayPerPost terms.

There are several tiers for creators, beginning with the free plan that is free and that all users who sign up start with. For a few dollars per month, users can upgrade their plan to Basic or Pro, getting lower cashout thresholds and lower penalties for early cashout. Paid plans also receive a vanity URL and upgraded support.

What We Like
  • Monthly PayPal withdrawals.

  • Variety of assignments.

What We Don't Like
  • No notification if blog is declined.

  • Several qualification requirements.

PayU2Blog is a smaller player in the sponsored review market. As a PayU2Blog publisher, you will be given paid posting assignments on a weekly basis based on the blog profile you create. Your blog must qualify to take part in PayU2Blog, and that determination will be made after you register. Blog requirements are:

  • Your blog must be at least 90 days old.
  • You must have made posts to your blog over the past 90 days.
  • You must be at least 18 years old.

If your blog does not qualify, you will likely not receive a notification—you will only be notified if your blog is selected.

What We Like
  • Paid over PayPal.

  • Three Creator plans.

  • Fast approval rate.

  • Lots of help documentation.

What We Don't Like
  • No filtering options for list of bids.

  • Site, including its "must register to see anything" barrier, is exactly like PayPerPost.

You may notice similarities between this site and the first one in this list. That's because SocialSpark comes from Izea.com, the same company that created PayPerPost. The goal of SocialSpark and PayPerPost are to create a full disclosure sponsored review system, so there is no question that the posts written as part of the program have been paid for. These two sites have merged into essentially the same site, and signing up for an account on one will give you access to the other.

If you're interested in making money through sponsored reviews, but you're concerned about losing your Google page rank or search traffic because of the penalties Google often places on blogs and websites that participate in social reviews and paid text link programs, then SocialSpark might be a good option for you.

What We Like
  • Easy sign-up process.

  • Works with multiple social media sites.

What We Don't Like
  • They take a large cut.

  • Requires thousands of followers.

For both creators and brands, and more for publishers on social media, Famebit connects these two to promote sponsorship partnerships. Your social media channel—whether that is YouTube, Twitter, Tumblr, or Facebook—must have a minimum level of subscribers or followers for you to join Famebit. You find brands and products that you're interested in on the site, and make a proposal showing how you will sell the product and get your audience interested in the product. Brands will respond if they are interested. You then produce your content and get paid (Famebit takes 10% of the payment as a service fee).
