Whyrll.com – It’s simple, it’s fun, it’s candy to the eye, and it works.
I was invited to be a pioneer poster at the site Whyrll.com, and after seventy some posts, I can say that it was a lot of fun, and it taught me a thing or two about how to get the most out of using Pinterest for promoting affiliate product pages.
Whyrll.com – (It’s pronounced “Viral”, although the creators expect many people will pronounce it as “Whirl”) is a simple to use rev-share site that allows you the opportunity to promote your Amazon, CJ-junction, and other affiliate product links through short, precise, and informative product reviews, without being forced to add hundreds of useless words simply to meet a minimum word requirement.
You will need an invitation to join
The charter contributors of Whyrll.com (known as pioneers), were recruited from the squidu.yuku forum. This forum is a small but dedicated group of individuals that were quite active on squidoo.com before that rev-share site closed its doors. After the demise of Squidoo.com many of these ex-Lensmasters continued to post and discuss their online activities at the Squidu.Yuku forum.
Both Roy Yap, and Roth P. – the founders of Whyrll.com were also well known and respected members of the squidoo community, so it was an easy decision for many of these top squids to give Whyrll.com a whirl.
You only need to write 100 words
While pointing out that longer posts are very are encouraged, the site founders do require that your posts be a minimum length of 100 words, and that they are accompanied by an eye catching image, a photo gallery, or an interesting video. The site is promoted collectively, by the contributors via Pinterest, Facebook, and other social networking venues.
No fillers this burger is all meat
Whyrll.com places an emphasis on describing the most important aspects of your product offering rather than demanding page filler. A statement by founder Roth P. sums it up this way –
“I do not really see the point of reviewing a Burger Phone in 600 words or more for the sake of word quantity.”
Roth goes on to state that-
The site is designed to get tons of referrals via viral content, because we aim to feature offbeat, weird and the innovative. I run a similar site and I am getting 150-200 visits via Pinterest only. And yes, Pinterest converts.
Whyrll.com is gaining momentum
The Whyrll.com site is gaining a following, and it is receiving excellent feedback from the contributors. As of this writing Whyrll.com has over three thousand posts representing virtually everything from high demand Disney licensed products, to obscure items like this Hi-Tech Spy Pen. A few of the more unique posts include: Animated LED bike spoke lights, a car & truck jack that inflates off your vehicles muffler, and spring loaded stilts that allow you to run and jump like a gazelle.
Those that appear to be making the best use of the Whyrll.com opportunity post on a regular basis, and continuously promote their posts (primarily via Pinterest). If you are new to using Pinterest as a promotional tool, involvement in Whyrll.com is a great way to learn the ropes.
Whyrll.com Announces Best of Lists
Whyrll.coml has officially added a best of list feature to the site. Over the past several weeks Roth and Roy have been experimenting with this best of application, and they’ve finally released it for use by author level contributors.
Always planning ahead; Roth commented that during his time as a contributor at squidoo the “best” of list format was one of his most lucrative styles of articles; Noting that on many occasions readers would purchase every item suggested.
List titles can include “Best of…”, Top Ten…”, “5 Best…”, My Ten Favorite….”, and so on. A Keywords Search and a little creativity can help you find an SEO optimized and hopefully profitable Keyword title.
In order to use the best of list function appropriately, you’ll need to already have several posts for the category in which you will be writing about. Here’s an example by Contributor Marie of her list – Best Disney Frozen Toys and Gifts for Kids. As you can see Marie has already written several posts about Disney’s Frozen making this an ideal Whyrll list opportunity.
