Ginger Nuts of Horror
I have been receiving a number of emails recently asking how much do I charge for reviews. The answer I give is always the same. I do not charge for reviews, hell I even feel uncomfortable having adverts on the site, certainly adverts that are of a horror nature. The reason for this is as soon as you start bringing money into it you have to begin to question the integrity of the site.
Just look at a recent issue of a genre magazine, their review section had me scratching my head in wonder. i know every review is a subjective point of view but when every review for a major publishing company or film company gets glowing reviews, and those from the lesser known places get on the whole negative reviews you have to wonder what the hell is going on.
It's something that i would hate to think anyone thought about this site. However running this site takes a lot of time and effort, from not just me, but also from my amazing team of reviewers, whose help is priceless. It also costs money, at this moment in time if this was a business it would be in administration. I spend more on the site than it makes, from website hosting fees to paying for adverts and stuff like SEO so that all the reviews and articles promoting all the writers, filmakers and general horror folks get the maximum exposure. Now i am not asking for money as that brings me back to the original point.
What I am asking is 1. if you like any of the sound of any of the products featured on the site please consider purchasing them through the Amazon associate links that feature on the site. These links give me around about a 7% return on all products brought through the link.
2. Please click the did you find this review helpful link on the Amazon review. This does two things it helps to increase my overall Amazon reviewer ranking, and it also means that my review will be at the top of the review list if it has the best helpful to unhelpful ratio. Wouldn't you love have a review from one of the top independent horror review websites as the first review people see. At the risk of blowing my own trumpet reviews from websites like Ginger Nuts carry a lot more weight than those from any old Tom, Dick or Harry. The reviews all contain a text link highlighting the site, which helps to boost my visibility.
3. Please share the reviews, articles etc. You can find a Facebook and Twitter share function at the bottom of each article, and there are multiple share options on the home page for places like Reddit, Tumbler, Pinintrest etc. Please use these functions every share helps to boost the google rankings for the site and bring in more viewers for reviews of what could possibly be your book.
The site has never been about making money it has always been about my love for the genre and with your help we can spread the world to the dirty uninitiated masses.
