Talking Game reviewers wanted

Hi all,

My name is Rob and together with a few friends I recently started the website:

www.videogame-offers.com

This website has a few goals:

1. Sell videogames
2. Promote videogames
3. Inform gamers about the latest releases and news

This website is still in it's early stage. Income is not a priority but we need some funds to keep the website running. Therefore we only sell through an affiliate programme and do not sell the games ourselves.

I have a full time job, so do my friends. We would love to play games all day and write reviews but we simply can't afford it ;-)

Therefore we are looking for youngsters that have more time on their hand and like to write about games. Non youngsters that have time to play games all day are also welcome off course :lol:

You will get login-id's so you will be able to submit a review whenever you want. Your name will off course be mentioned, even a picture if you want.

Unfortunately we cannot pay for your reviews. We are simply doing this for the love for videogames. Would the website be a success, we will obviously share this succes with you. Which means a commission is not unthinkable. Writing for us can also be a start to a more professional writing job for one of the bigger gaming websites.

So, do you like games and do you like to share your thoughts about them on the Internet, please send me a PM or email me (rob-traffic@hotail.com).

I hope to email with you soon.

Best regards
Robert

Why don't you just reference to reviews from well-known game review websites ? I think doing so would save you a lot of effort needed to write original reviews for a growing database.

Is that legit? Won't I get any copyright problems?

Rob,
It's obviously bad advice, and since you asked if the advice is legit, you should obviously have a lawyer on retainer as you start your new side business.

Oh, I'm sorry everyone, I didn't think about possible legal problems.

A lawyer???? Hahahaha, that's a bit too serious. I'll play it safe and only use my own content, that of people writing for me and PLR-content.

The consequences of going into business without a lawyer are pretty serious, too. But hey, good luck!

I think you are overreacting a bit. It's not like I'm selling a product like iPat or IFone. I said before I'm playing it safe. Only PLR or people writing their own stuff.

Anyway, thanks to this topic I've got 2-3 people willing to write for me and that's great!!!

There are still some spots open tough. If you like to write about news articles, www.videogame-offers.com can use news-writers too.

So if you are interested to write about videogames, no matter in what form, send me an meal to info@videogame-offers.com

Rob
