Interesting Viral Affiliate Program

I know that some of you may gasp if I mention PayPerPost, but here goes.

As you may know, I write paid posts from time to time. I always provide full disclosure, and I always provide my honest opinion. If in doubt, you can read my full disclosure policy.

I logged into PayPerPost this evening, seeing if any interesting opportunities caught my eye. I noticed that they made several nice changes to the site, mainly design tweaks and such.

Posties (as PayPerPost users are called) can now ban advertisers from showing up in their opportunity list. That’s a handy way of weeding out advertisers whose content might offend you or your readers. PayPerPost seems to care about us. We’ll leave the final judgment for another day.

The coolest feature I ran across is the new Review My Post program. Basically, posties put a little badge at the bottom of their blog posts (see below). When someone clicks the badge and signs up with PayPerPost, they get the opportunity to review the original blogger for $7.50. Once the new postie gets paid for the review, the original blogger gets $7.50 for the referral. If that isn’t cool, I don’t know what is.

Thus, you’ll now see “Review My Post” buttons around Legal Andrew. I’m giving this program a little test run. The images seem non-obnoxious.

I’m curious what you readers think. Does it destroy the content and theme of Legal Andrew? Would any of you consider reviewing my content? Please post a comment here or drop me a line.

    Wow, I did a Technorati search to try to find other posties who were infuriated with the enormous amounts of glitches with PayPerPost’s not-even-really-in-beta release today, and I’m finding people who are actually HAPPY about the changes? I’m flabbergasted.

    As for the new features, how do you feel about the rollover disclosure button that advertisers can request that will create a pop up with content that you have no control over? Do you like that feature?

    Thanks for your input on this situation. I actually didn’t know about the new disclosure feature from PayPerPost. I’ll just have to see how it works in practice. I’m definitely not a fan of popups.

    Thanks for commenting,
