FINALLY
« on: September 18, 2013, 06:23:36 PM »
Hey everyone.

I know that this forum is all about dead, and if no one reads this its cool. I am just excited to share. I just did a review, video and post for an oil filter company. I also have another one that I am writing now. It is very basic stuff, so it's easy to write. This is the first time I have accepted an offer like this. I like the product and used it for years even before I was a pro mechanic.

The 2 posts and video paid $800! I am freaking excited. It is great to have the hard work pay off.

Hope y'all are doing good.

Cheers
Charles

Hi Charles!

That's great!

I checked out your site and video. I like the way you say what your video is about before the branding. Nice hook and I know right away what the video is going to cover.

I also followed you on Twitter I'm @spearoblog.

Did you approach the oil filter company? If so, and you don't mind sharing, how? (email, call, social media)

Thanks for the inspiration.

@Roman,
Thanks for the kind words.

The company approached me about the review. Most of the things like that have happened due to people approaching me. I guess that means it time to start a request blitz.
