My Thoughts Regarding Sverve
For the past several months I’ve been hearing a lot of chatter on forums about a company called Sverve. According to the rumors, this company was involved in blogging and advertising and they were specifically looking for women to work from home. The problem was that beyond a few rumors, I just couldn’t find much information so I finally decided that if I was going to learn whether or not Sverve was a legit work at home opportunity I was going to have to bite the bullet and join their program.
What Happened After Joining Sverve?
Signing up for Sverve was very easy and based on that process it seemed like it was going to be a good deal. However, after I completed the signup process I got nothing. No opportunities, money making or not. I was just about to write the whole experience off as a waste of time when I was talking to a friend who uses Sverve and she encouraged me to look deeper and be proactive. I was going to have to put some effort into the process.
It turns out the trick to using Sverve is to focus on small businesses who are looking for bloggers that would be willing to do some promotional work. Based on the tips I got from my friend, I was able to connect with some businesses and earn some money.
The Sverve Pros
First off, Sverve is a legit work at home opportunity, I do think that the right person could use the program they have created to earn a pretty good living. The right person needs to be someone who’s willing to do some PR work, doesn’t mind blogging, and has a strong understanding of social networking.
Another thing I liked was that unlike similar opportunities, members don’t need a wildly popular blog, at least not when they first start out, even a novice blogger will be able to use the program to earn money, however the more popular the blog becomes, the more money the blogger will be able to earn.
The Cons of Sverve
Honestly, my biggest complaint with Sverve is the fact that they don’t seem to be very willing to do much to help the members who are blogging for them. I should have been given some kind of information packet or at least had a tutorial I could watch that would have explained exactly what I needed to do to get started with the program. The customer service department needs a complete overall. If I didn’t have a friend who could show me the ropes, I would’ve just given up before I ever got started.
Even though I do think that it’s possible to use the Sverve program to earn a decent amount of money, I’m going to give it a pass. From what I can tell, it’s going to take quite a bit of time and social networking work before I would see any real money come rolling in, and I simply don’t have time for that. However, if you love blogging, don’t mind doing advertisement work, and enjoy the social networking lifestyle, I think you should give it a try.
