Make money writing reviews

Updated on June 16, 2009

I casually stumbled upon Review Stream a few months ago while simply browsing for work at home jobs. Out of curiosity, I decided to give this website a try. I am generally very wary of websites that require a fee to join or to start working, so Review Stream seemed to be worth a try since there were no fees involved.

Upon landing on their website, do not expect a user friendly navigation page. Oddly enough you will not have to register, you will simply have to make up a pen name and provide your paypal address so they can pay you once you reach payout. Payout occurs once you reach $50. Each review will be paid 2.00 if deemed high quality or at the bulk rate at 40 cents. If 40 cents seems too little, you can resubmit the review and hopefully if you polish it enough, you may get the $2.00 rate.

The good news is that you can write reviews of just about anything. Restaurants you dined in, supermarkets you visited, shoes you wore, websites you visited, hotels you slept in, foods you ate, even products for your dog. The possibilities are endless, and if you are eager to make some money you may reach payout pretty fast. However, you must invest some time on writing good quality reviews.

Reviews that are too short or with many typos will only yield 40 cents or may be unaccepted if they are of no value. I had about 90% of mine accepted and 8 of 10 were accepted at 2 dollars per article. This is because I love writing and because I always get carried away once I type, creating an average of 400-500 word reviews.

Once you submit your review, you will get a confirmation e-mail, confirming that they have received your review. Then within 3-4 days you will know if the review was accepted and at what price. Review Stream requires 100% original content, so do not cheat by submitting work that you have published elsewhere.

Review Stream will not make you rich overnight but it can help you pay off a couple of bills. If you put some effort into it, you can easily reach payout every month by simple writing a high quality review every day. With all the scams of work at home jobs out there, it is nice to find every now and then some honest companies that do not require upfront fees and that keep their promise of providing payout once it is reached. As always stay away from online scams that promise you to become rich overnight and join honest websites like Review Stream: you will not become a millionaire at least you get to enjoy some cash...
