"What are you an expert reviewer of?"

The only reason I own the digital camera I have now is because my brother insisted is was worth what he paid for it. He showed me that the initial expense of the camera would turn out to be less than what I'd spend developing disposables in a year. And not to mention the quality far surpassed a camera housed by cardboard. Well, it may be easy to sway someone from using a disposable camera to using a nice digital but the point is I wouldn't have known the benefits of making the switch if someone didn't share with me their personal experience about it.

Taking up the challenge to provide product reviews can be done in two ways. One is to earn cash from paid-to-review websites like Epinions and "Videopinions" on ExpoTv.com. The other is to start your own product review website or blog like Digital Photography Blog and I4U News and use CPC services like Chitika to help you earn revenue from it. As a Chitika member you automatically receive your own link to your custom store called a ShopLinc, this store can be linked from a page on your website or blog where you can display products related to the products you review. The great thing about this store is you don't need to be a product review guru, you can choose to display your store by itself (without your own reviews) and still earn CPC revenue from it. All you have to do is grab your custom store and promote it.

Let's say you do have product reviews, where are they displayed in your ShopLinc? If you look to the right hand column of this example ShopLinc, you will see a section labeled "Research from the Expert". This is where this blogger's own product reviews are displayed. The product reviews in that column go hand-in-hand with the Chitika product images within the rest of the ShopLinc which earn you CPC revenue when clicked on. Getting started is simple & you could be earning revenue within minutes. Sign up now and maybe your reviews will help guide someone the way my brother was able to guide me!
