Did you try out the work at home opportunity of taking surveys and trying out companies promotions? If you didn’t get a chance to explore this opportunity, you can read about it in Part One of this four part series.
This week we will discuss pay per posting. The one we will talk about is the most popular and that is PayPerPost. What is pay per posting? It is a way for bloggers to make money blogging about products, companies, reviews and more. Advertisers get buzz generated about their products, etc. and if your post is approved you get paid.
You have to have a blog up and running for at least 30 days. This keeps the fly-by-night bloggers away. You must have a blog, no websites, forums, etc. You must let your readers know that the particular post is a sponsored post (paid by an advertiser). Check out their TOS to get a better understanding of what you can or cannot do. You will be looking at the blogger specific terms.
It is free to sign up for PPP and you can make money by writing a review about a particular advertiser’s product or service. You choose what you want to blog about and if approved, after 30 days you are paid. Usually it is $5 – $15 per post. If you love to write, why not get paid for it. Just remember it is up to you to make sure you do not turn your blog into a press release.
My advice is to write about what you want to blog about and scatter your paid post out among them. As a rule of thumb, sponsored posts should be less than 5-10% of your blog posts. If you write 10 posts per month (about 2.5 per week), then a maximum of one sponsored post per month probably won’t kill your readership. On the other hand, if you write several posts a day you can get away with three or more paid posts a week. In my research, I discovered bloggers that make hundreds of dollars a month, but I think it is more realistic to say that the average blogger could make $10 – $30 a month. You cannot have more than three paid posts in a 24-hour period and there must be at least one interim post between the paid posts. So it is possible to make approximately $45 a day. If you love to write and have the time to make several posts a day, you could make a good living from getting paid to posts on your blog.
Give your readers good honest content. Only do paid posts for advertisers that you honestly believe in. This way it is a win-win situation. To get loyal readers to your blog put them first. Many sponsored post opportunities are for reviewing a product or service. I recommend that you make sure you actually use the product or service before reviewing it for cash. Don’t recommend a product or service that you know nothing about.
Similarly give your sponsors (the paying advertisers) what they are paying for. Write good, honest and interesting posts and you will continue to get advertisers wanting you to write for them. This is more money for you.
In closing, I think it is up to you how much money you can make working from home. How much time you can put into it and what you are willing to do. As of now, we have discussed CashCrate and PPP and next week we will continue with part three of the series Work From Home Job Opportunities.
If you have any comments about Pay Per Post, we would love to hear them! Hope to hear from you. Enjoy Life!!!
