Sponsored Reviews sent out an email earlier today which initially had my heart beating rather rapidly! I thought they were sending out an email announcing they were closing their network down, despite me having a few problems with them over the years they are one of the major players and I do good business with them and did not relish replacing that income.
Thankfully they are not closing down, they sent out an email announcing that there was going to be a major change in how long bloggers are given to write sponsored posts. There used to be a seven day time frame for you to get your post completed but it is now being shortened to five days.
I’m not sure what the point of this is because I don’t know many people who wait until the last minute to complete their tasks anyway, I normally complete mine about four days before the deadline.
I have noticed more and more advertisers are putting into the requirement section “post must be completed within 24-48 hours” so maybe Sponsored Reviews have been receiving lots of complaints from advertisers who are too impatient to wait for their tasks to be completed?
I don’t believe this new change will affect many people but it might result in a lot more poor quality posts being submitted.
