SharedReviews is sharing its revenues with members

Today, I was shopping online for the Portable Multimedia Player with Camcorder. Actually, I knew exactly what I want, as I owned one before, and I had on my mind a preferred set of features I am looking for. Where can user go to get an idea, how the product, so nicely described on the manufacturer’s Web Site, behaves in the real life? Is this gadget indeed represents a best value for the money spent? What are the hidden drawbacks, and pleasant surprises? Manufacturer or Distributor Web Sites will not share with you all the secrets, serial problems, and possible reliability issues. To give a hand to the confused buyers, making an informative choice, several online Web Sites stepped in, offering consumer products reviews on their pages.
Most product review sites fall in two general categories: professional or community driven. Sites like CNET Reviews and blogs like CrunchGearimage001 pay their professional staff to review the latest Hi Tech gadgets and give reader a trustworthy and hopefully unprejudiced, opinion on tech toys, their positive and negative features, and overall gadgets rating. Community driven sites like Epinions and Amazon encourage their visitors to post individual reviews, based on their personal experience and private opinion on the products they own or have an informative knowledge.

Since usefulness of the product reviews site strongly depends on the amount of the content and areas of coverage, there are quite a few online communities that decided to share their revenues generated by advertising on the site with the community members: reviewers and, in some cases, with readers, evaluating reviews.

One of the new communities on the market, successfully utilizing this approach, is SharedReviews.Com. They define their social purpose as “a social network that allows you to connect with other consumers to share and learn about real consumer product experiences”. Any product review, generating ads income, is split between earnings going to the review author, and some earnings to those, who spent their time to read, comment, and rate the review. This way, active participation of both authors and commenters is monetary encouraged. is fresh and full of energy. If you are looking for some online supplementary income opportunities, it might be a good choice to start with.

Based on the feedback of the community members, I am changing the company rating from 3 to 4 on the list of the Revenue Sharing Opportunities. You are welcome to access the full listing (132, at the moment):
