Make Money with Website Reviews: 32 Reviews

32ReviewsOnce your site is established — with a few dozen posts under your belt and a small stream of traffic — you will probably have more opportunities to make money with your blog than you have time for.

Just this morning I just finished a nicely-priced skin care product review (which combined bartered promotion and paid posting), declined six offers that were under my price point, and I still have over $100 in sponsored posts waiting to be written. And that doesn’t include any of the affiliate marketingmerchandising, salesadvertising space, or continuity program income that trickles in day and night passively.

Multiple streams of income is definitely the way to go when making money on the web.

Still, I’m always looking for new ways PopCred members can make money with their blogs. Today I received an offer from a website referral service called 32reviews. I hadn’t heard of this site before but decided to test it out and let you all watch the process of starting fresh with a new money-making opportunity and evaluating it for future income.

As the process moves along, I will update this page to include my progress in the program along with my opinions about how viable this system is.

If you choose to click through and try the program as well, please comment below and share your experiences!

I went to the 32reviews site and signed up for a free account. Immediately I was given access to my account, profile, and a referral account to invite others to join.

Within a few minutes, I was emailed a confirmation that included my account information. About ten minutes later, I received a  “Sample Test” request. It had a link I was to click to go to a test site to see if I could follow the “detailed instructions” well enough to pass.

Once I got there, I read the instructions in the right sidebar carefully. I suggest you always do this with any service you use. It will save you time, money, and pain!

The test review page told me to click through to a website. The link forwards to a Lushli Facebook app. I changed the settings so that only I can see posts for this app on my timeline. (Why would I want to provide free advertising for a test app?)

Once I added the app, I went to the Lushli Facebook page and a popover opened with the three steps I should take. I was instructed to complete each step on the app and then write up my opinion on each of the steps back on the 32reviews “live test” page.

After about 10 minutes of work, my browser threw a temper tantrum and refreshed every single open browser window. Seriously.

After a bit of maintenance, I restarted the browser and started the review process again. On each section I added two paragraphs of pros and cons of my experience. Then I submitted the information. I got a confirmation page indicating that my submission was successful.

Now, I’m waiting to see if the information I submitted was sufficient.

Update: May 31

This morning I receive an email stating that I passed the test. I am not an “active user tester.”

The next step is to watch my email for notifications of paid review opportunities.

More to come!

    Thanks for the heads up on this. I tried it and had no problems. They review applicants in batches of 50 so don’t wait around and expect your sample review right away, mine took about 7 hours to reach my inbox. I read the questions carefully, knowing I’d have to answer them after testing/reviewing the app that came up. I paid specific attention so that I could give detailed feedback on the 32 reviews form. They also review the submissions in batches of 50 so feedback and acceptance might not be for a while. I must have been at the end of the batch because I got my acceptance in about 10 minutes. It seems like a simple way to make a bit of spending money.

    Thanks for the feedback, Andrea. Good to hear that you have been moving forward in the process.

    As per the update I just posted, my test passed. I’m assuming you’ll get yours fairly soon as well.

    The real test is whether or not we actually get offers and if the pay they offer is worth the time to do them. I hope this turns out to be a useful service. The more streams of income we have coming to the blogs, the better. :)

    Im not too sure about this website, I joined it recently, and now you go to the website, and it brings you to go daddy.
    I tried to reply back to the message for my first test to get accepted. — Failure to deliver.
    Im nervous now, could this be a scam?

    Thanks for the heads up on that, Jaimee! I just checked and got the same result.

    This could be a technical glitch, a failed site, or a scam. Time will tell, but this doesn’t look good. I don’t think there’s anything to be nervous about, but it does indicate that things aren’t going well.

    In the meantime, there are lots of tried and true ways to make money blogging, so head on over and get started! :)

    I had the same problem and am also worried. I did pass the test and was hoping to make some money.

    Rose, I wouldn’t worry too much about it. It was a test that, at this point, failed. If you stick with the 10 money making methods I outline, you will make money. I’ve been using them for years. :)
