What’s your opinion on paid reviews? Do you think it’s okay to accept payment to review a product on your blog, or not?
I think that paid reviews are okay, as long as it’s an honest review, and the payment does not influence you. I think of it like this: They’re paying for a chance to have their product reviewed, because it may not be otherwise. You, as a blogger, are receiving additional incentive to write a review. If the company demands a positive review, then you’re just being yet another marketing robot for them.
I’m not against paid reviews, so long as their honest reviews, and you don’t post too many of them (as opposed to normal posts). However, I’d like to know what you think of them. Paid reviews are a controversial topic, and I would like to hear your opinions.
