Sponsored reviews show one of the strongest return on investment for our advertisers. As an example, in one of the articles, we identified as sponsor as providing the service shown in that article. Outgoing link statistics show that visitors click on the sponsored link almost 8000 times/month. The sponsor was charging about $20 for the service. Even if only 80 people or 1% of those visitors purchased the service, that translated into a revenue of almost $20,000/year for our sponsor.
