Patrick Gavin is in Bed with Both PayPerPost and ReviewMe

A little while back, I was wondering why Patrick Gavin’s involvement in ReviewMe was being played down and I think today I got my answer when I saw that Performancing, a blogger support network that Gavin owns was acquired by PayPerPost, which is a direct competitor to one of Gavin’s other ventures, ReviewMe. I’ve also heard rumor that blogsvertise, a little known pioneer in the Sponsored Post niche, also had dealings with the ReviewMe guys and is under the impression that the idea was stolen from under them.

In both the case of performancing and reviewme, it appears Patrick Gavin uses another person as the “face” of the business. Ex-threadwatch owner Nick Wilson is the guy on performancing and Andy Hagans “operates” the Rustybrick coded and Chris Pearson designed reviewme.
