Don't write for reviewstream: Make money writing reviews without using reviewstream

Don't write for reviewstream: Make money writing reviews without using reviewstream

Making money writing reviews for reviewstream is very easy to do. Reviewstream is not a scam, and the review site does pay people who reach the minimum payout, and review stream does allow writers to review virtually anything. Review stream sounds like an excellent website to write reviews for doesn't it? So it is known that the review website does pay reviewers once they request their payout, given that their earnings meet the minimum payout threshold, and it is also known that Reviewstream is not a scam at all, so why should you not write reviews for reviewstream?

The first reason is that even though the regular rate for reviews can appear attractive to reviewers, it is only a one time payment. If reviewstream pays a reviewer the regular rate, or bulk rate, than they will only pay you once for the review, and there will be no residual income made off of your review. Once you submit a review to reviewstream and they accept it than you gave up all rights to the review and cannot publish the review anywhere else.

Once you are close to the payout threshold, or pass the payout threshold, Review stream accepts reviews automatically or rejects them automatically, and if reviewstream decides to reject your review than usually a screen appears that says your review is not valuable or they do not want to pay you the regular rate or something among those lines. Even though reviewstream doesn't say it, this is because there is a word count that needs to be meant for the regular rate, and sometimes the word count requirement goes up higher. For example, if you want your reviews paid at the regular rate, and you are at the point where reviewstream allows you to participate in processing reviews, than you should try to make sure your reviews are around 500-550 words if you want your reviews paid at the regular rate. If your review is 500-550 words than most likely after submitting your review, reviewstream will inform you that your review was accepted or denied for the regular rate, but if your review is denied than just hit the back button and add more words until you are at 550 words. After awhile, reviewstream may want your reviews to be 600 words or even more, in order to pay you the regular rate.

If you write enough reviews for reviewstream than sooner or later you will receive an immediate decision if your review is accepted for the regular rate or not, and than you will have the option to earn a few cents for processing reviews, this sounds good but as mentioned before, sooner or later reviewstream will want more words in your review in order for them to possibly accept the review for the regular rate, even though reviewstream doesn't say this on their website, it is obvious that this is how they probably work.

As you can see there is some money to be made writing for reviewstream but writers are cutting their profits short when they write for reviewstream. Writers have to write around 20 reviews paid at the regular rate in order to reach the $50 minimum payout amount. If your reviews get accepted at the bulk rate than you will have to write more than 20 reviews. Writers have to write a whole lot of words and reviews in order to get the regular rate.

If a writer is out to make some real money from their reviews than submitting their reviews to other article websites or putting their reviews on a blog could prove to be much more profitable than submitting reviews to reviewstream for just a one time payment. Putting your written reviews on your own blog or website or article websites will let you have the chance at earning residual income from your reviews. If you write reviews for your own website, blog or article site than just writing a simple 300-400 review should be more than enough words.

Writers who are putting in so much effort into writing reviews for reviewstream is only cutting their own profits short. Writers who are putting in a lot of effort into writing for reviewstream should just use the reviews on their own website or blog. Think about it, reviewstream wants your reviews for a reasons, so why not just use your reviews for your own blog or website, you may be surprise at the results that you may receive from your hard work. Reviewstream is legit and they do pay but writers can make more money from their reviews via other methods other than reviewstream.

      Thanks for writing this, you don't know how many people you saved from this scam site.

      I don't know if they're legit because they pissed me off with their rude replies and ambiguous rejection reasons.

      I rather forgo the few reviews they have accepted than put up with their lousy attitudes. I treat it as charity to a bunch of uneducated kids.

      Beware of them, i think they're turning scam. I'm not able to cashout because they just won't let me by rejecting all my reviews when I just need a few more to cashout.

      There is no explanation given and when I asked them, they told me that it's not their responsibilities to teach people to write! How rude! I am just asking what they expect!

      Hmmm... thank you for the information! I will say that ALL the popular writing sites are a disappointment. You earn less writing articles for ad revenue than you do with Adsense on Youtube. Writing articles and waiting for traffic is a BIG waste of time! I want to try reviews because I am not going to do a bunch of research and sell my articles and all the rights to someone else. I will simply self publish a book on the topic. It is unlikely that I will want to retain the rights to my reviews on spaghetti O's or a hair dryer. The pay rates on the site's earnings calculator range between $4 and $11 per article That is the best deal I have seen yet on articles so I guess this is one I will just have to try for myself.

      I just heard about Reviewstream today and have been looking for users' reviews, so this is good info for me. Interestingly, this is the third review of the site I've read, and they've all been negative. Hmmm...

      Hi, thanks for the nice information. I think Review stream is a great place to measure my skill. Regarding of the bulk payment, I will ignore it and take the opportunity as "writing practice" with some bucks of bonuses. When I reach the highest rate, I will know my capability and will have credibility to charge more for my services, but not for Review Stream, to broader customers instead.
