The blogging purists of the world will wince when they discover yet another launch of a service that pays bloggers to write about a certain company or product.

Steve Rubel has the barest of details on which appears to take a slightly different post to the likes of

There’s not much to be found on the LoudLaunch web site either…

Loud Launch is building a smart platform which connects savvy advertisers with influential web personalities (bloggers).

We are excited to tell you more soon, so please sign up to be notified when we launch. You’ll love whats coming…get paid for doing what you already do!

The one way that I see being of value, is if they can attract experienced bloggers willing to help start a brand new blog that will benefit a single company. Many companies are interested in starting a blog to indirectly promote their company or product, but they don’t have anyone on staff. If LoudLaunch (or another) could focus on meeting that need, they could have a huge business.

  • Hmmm, with the way they are launching, it wreaks of a copy cat of ReviewMe. 2c

  • How do you figure that? Reviewme came out with an exact plan of what they offer, these guys seem to be a little more stealthy. Did you find any further info on them?

  • Wow, looks like ReviewMe just launched their new site. I didn’t actually look when I created that link. I wonder if they are live as I didn’t recieve a notification email even though I signed up to.

    But I was more referring to how LoudLaunch made their announcement and their website in it’s current form. It looks like they just looked at the ReviewMe preview site (not online anymore) and used that as their template to create their own.

    Add to that, the LoudLaunch domain is 1 month old and their feed ( goes out of it’s way to say they conceived of the idea in June.

    I don’t know, something just doesn’t smell right with these guys and I tend to trust my instincts.

  • Fair enough. We’ll keep an eye on them and see what they get up to. 😉

    I agree. Two boxes and an RSS feed button. Very suspicious. I think that RSS logo is in use on some other sites as well. I’m with Jeremy, that RSS button gives me the creepts. It’s evil.

  • LOL, who would have thought an RSS button would be “evil”. 😉

  • I was doing a pr launch for my Playstation 3 giveaway and decided to try loudlaunch. While I got a few quality posts, I also found an anti-semitic hate site (one that called for the destruction of Israel) posting about my release.

    Here’s the complete story.

    This is my bitter experience! Loudlaunch is not paying properly they have to pay me more than 600$ this is a pending payment for last two years. So fellow bloggers be care full while writing paid reviews and blog posts on behalf of them. Instead of paying you they will simply blog your account once the pending payment accumulate, Hence beware fellow bloggers!!!
