LoudLaunch – Superficial Review

January 4th, 2007 · No Comments

LoudLaunch is a budding site, much like Pay Per Post or Review Me that rewards bloggers for blogging reviews about their sponsors. So far, so good.

So what do I think about it? Please note that my opinion does not count, in any way, and that I am not getting paid or anything like that.

I think it won’t succeed. The first reason is that they don’t clearly mention how the bloggers will get paid. They say:

If your blog and interests are aligned with an advertiser’s campaign then you can do your own research and write about them in exchange for pay—not in exchange for a pre-determined outcome but for a fair assessment.

So you expect good bloggers to sign up on uncertain terms? What the heck is “fair assessment” is that based on click-throughs or pageviews or conversions, or just the fact that the review has been posted, and has stayed up for a week/month? You need to be crystal clear if you want someone to put their reputation and resdership behind your business!!

Things like stupid answers in the FAQ don’t help either. Here’s one:

Q. How do I get paid?
A. No, we only use Paypal.

Huh?

I love doing reviews, for free.
