Note: I may earn money or products from the companies, products, or links mentioned in this post.
During my blog coaching sessions I get asked a lot about other sites that could possibly help bloggers make more money. Not because they are selfish and greedy and want more money, but mainly because they want to help support their families through blogging. I say, what better way? So I compiled a list of websites that have legitimately helped me make money on my blog. I hope this list helps you as much as it has helped me!
Make More Money With Your Blog:
“Monetize your blog in many ways to increase your ad revenue. You can accept or decline any advertisements we send you including sponsored blog posts and guest posting ads. We also offer: display banner ads, text link ads, and inline advertising. Blogvertise is ideal for newbies, and intermediate or advanced professional bloggers.”
I have made money off of Blogvertise through sponsored posts here and there It’s great for making occasional money. You can set your own price for sponsored posts and go from there.
“Business 2 Blogger is a special little corner of the internet where BUSINESSES and BLOGGERS can run through fields of daisies toward each other and embrace. Business meet Blogger. Blogger meet Business. Now let’s hug.”
I haven’t accepted any offers from Business 2 Blogger yet, but I love that they send me emails with offers that I can browse through once or twice a month. Plus you can go on the website and browse through their list of opportunities anytime you want to!
“Clever Girls Collective, Inc. is a technology-driven content and social media marketing company. Our product suite and proprietary technology platform connects brands with a vetted network of over 8,000 bloggers and reaches more than 80 million unique women every month. The Clever Girls Collective network generates authentic, user-generated content that gets results for brands across all social media outlets. We’ve delivered hundreds of campaigns working with the biggest names in business. Our unique approach is proven, replicable, and successful…and our clients agree.”
I love Clever Girls! They also send you emails of opportunities you can choose from and the payment is usually ranging from $75.-$100. They work with some really great businesses and are really a lot of fun to work with.
“Our goal with The SITS Girls is to raise the bar when it comes to how bloggers and brands interact. There are plenty of networks that offer bloggers the opportunity for product reviews, free products, and unpaid opportunities, but we want to move a step beyond.
Here are just a few examples of paid opportunities we’ve passed onto the bloggers in our network previously: Write a post and embed a video, attend an exhibit opening at an museum prior to its launch to the public, stop by a PR office to check out a new line of cookware, attend a book signing party with an author at a local bookstore, swing by a cocktail party where a brand debuts all of their upcoming holiday products, and come to a private party at a local retailer to meet with brand representatives as part of a focus group.”
SITS Girls also sends out emails of opportunities you can join. I have joined them more recently, but they are definitely getting better and have more offers as time goes by. Their sponsors also offer opportunities between $75.-$100.
“From time to time, we have companies looking to connect with great bloggers like you. Please sign up for our mailing list so that you know when we may need you. Once a client is obtained, we will send you the campaign details and you will have a survey link to fill out. This will help us know who wants to participate in each specific review.”
This site is easy to use! Just fill out the form, and wait for the emails. I have not accepted any opportunities from them as of yet, but I enjoy getting them in my inbox.
“Sponsored Tweets is a Twitter advertising platform that connects advertisers with tweeters. The site provides robust targeting and detailed analytics.”
Sponsored Tweets has been great! It’s easy to use and easy to mix in a few advertisements with my regular tweets and earn some change per tweet! I have made money from this, but you have to start your tweets off lower than a $1.00 per tweet to get started and to get noticed. definitely worth it!
“Earn advertising fees from qualifying purchases, not just the products you advertised. Plus, our competitive conversion rates help you maximize your earnings.”
Amazon Associates is one of my favorites! You can link up products you review or really like and earn money if people purchase them. You can also open your own “amazon store” and put products in it that you recommend and if people purchase those then you earn a percentage from that as well. You can see an example of mine HERE. It’s a great program!
There it is! I hope this has been helpful to you. Please leave a comment if you have any more questions about how any of these work.
