    I work for PowerReviews/ in SF. We're changing the world of product reviews. 
Business model

To date, we have collected over 1.5 million customer reviews across hundreds of thousands of products. These reviews are found on both our retail client sites (,,, etc.) as well as our own consumer site 

Through Buzzillions we are able to monetize traffic on a CPC/CPA revenue model.   


Competitive advantage
Because we power the review technology and services for our clients, we are able to know whether a person writing a review has actually purchased the product or not, which we call "Verified Buyers." This adds a high level of credibility to our reviews, something that no other review site or shopping comparison site can offer.
