Learn How to Get Paid Blogging!

Every blogger wants to know how and where to find paid jobs. Monetizing your blog is actually very easy to get started, but being a sucess requires determination and dediction. It isn't as simple as you might think, but it isn't difficult once you get your feet wet and start to recceive steady work.

There really isn't aspecific network that I would particularly label as the only network you should focus on. In order to successfully monetize your blog, I would suggest that you strive to become as active and successful in a variety of monetization platforms and networks. Focusing your attention on one particular area of monetization or specific network will only hold you back. Remain diverse and the you will definitely see positive results!

One of the greatest ways to get paid blogging and grow your blog itself is by joining and partnering up with blogging networks and sites that will match you up with top quality sponsored post opps. Depending on the network and/or your blogging goals, you will land gigs for product reviews, giveaways, opportunities to voice your opinion or share a brand experience, get paid to use your social media presence to market a product, or attend a local event/attraction in your city!

I have put together an extraordinary list of nearly all blogging networks that I have come across in my years as a blogger. I have worked with a large majority of these networks or heard great things about them through fellow bloggers. I will not include any networks that have failed me in the past! 

Yes — there are a lot of networks on this list. However, I would highly recommend bookmarking this page to make sure you visit each and every one to decide which one(s) work best for your blog. Your chances of blog growth, development, and monetization will grow immensely as you continue down this list and register for as many as you can. Do not focus on one particular network and e

  And one great way to find new opportunities is by joining quality blogging networks, and sponsored post sites. You’ll get opps to review products, write posts about brands, sites, or services, and earn an income while doing it. So – I put together this list of totally legit ways to get paid blogging opps. {These are all networks that I’ve worked with, and have earned at least one check from. So I can vouch for every single one.}

*This list is in alphabethical order; not sorted from best to worst or anything else! I will do my best to provide a short description, but this won't be possible for every single network listed.

 


- Blogsvertise

- BookiebooClever Girl Network Badge Icon

- Business2Blogger

- Clever Girl Network

- Double Duty Divas

- GLAM: If I had to pick one network to work with, GLAM Media would be it. GLAM is actually an ad network that also partners up their brand clients with bloggers on sponsored posts and amazing campaigns! In order to qualify for a paid sponsored post opp, bloggers must be a part of their ad network. The payout is great and I must say my monetization really changed for the better (I saw results!) once I was approved by GLAM. Their campaigns are always a lot of fun, too! Here are some of my favorite GLAM posts from the archive:

* Target Kids Winter Apparel: Our Holiday Fashion Photo Shoot with Target!

* Fight Breast Cancer w/ Making Strides American Cancer Society

* Hewlett Packard Helps Mom with Back to School Printables Checklist & Worksheets w/ HP Ink!

Global Influence: With nearly 2,000+ bloggers, Global Influence Network features a great selection of opps and an active community, too! You'll not only find some great jobs to make money for your blog, but also gain new friends and learn something new thanks to their strong support system. 

- LinkVehicle

- Linqia

- Lunchbox

- MassiveSway (*formerly SITS Girls)

- Mom Select

- Mom Spark Media: There is a fee in order to join this network. You'll be required to either pay $5/month or $40 annually. Lots of great campaigns and a great community for support, too!

- The Motherhood

- One 2 One: Although you won't find a lot of paid opps on One 2 One, their campaigns are still a lot of fun. You pick and choose which one of their campaigns you'd like to publish on your blog. In doing so, One 2 One grants each blogger participant a "chance to win" a prize. Therefore, compensation isn't exactly a guarantee on all of their opps. I generally find that their prizes include gift cards or other gifts. Although I tend to steer away from networks that don't compensate everyone for their time and efforts, I do dabble with One 2 One on occassion. If the content is valuable for my readers, I will devote the time and cross my fingers that I am the chosen winner! on really often, and enjoy working with them. Learn more and sign up for One2One today.

- Pollinate Media Group

SITS Girls: Definitely one of my favorite networks, SITS Girls recently merged with MassiveSway (see above). I have been a SITS Girl for as long as I can remember and I have loved to be a part of their amazing campaigns in the past. Their campaigns are always very well planned, different and original, fun, and they compensate very well for the amount of work and effort you'll devote on their opps. SITS Girls has an amazing collection of resources for bloggers and a great community foundation. You don't want to skip this one!

- Social Fabric: As a part of the Collective Bias community, Social Fabric focuses on the shopping experience versus the product. You'll be asked to tell the story of your purchasing experience from start to finish when you are selected to participate in a SoFab "Shoppertunity". Use big and clear pictures to help tell your story. Let your reader feel like they were pushing a cart next to you as you strolled the aisles for the ingredients to put togther a romantic date night dinner for two! Fun, unique, and Social Fabric is surely one of my favorite communities for learning and support!

If you’ve never heard of them – it’s a community of Collective Bias, where they put a big focus on the shopper experience. You’ll participate in “Shoppertunities” – {see an example of a Shoppertunity here.} Learn more on the Social Fabric site.

- Social Spark: This is definitely one of my top network picks! They are great to work with and the jobs are well organized from start to finish! First you receive an offer (leads) for a job, which you can accept or decline. There's no shame in skipping an offer that won't be a good fit for your blog! Thereafter, brands will decide whether or not to offer you the job. When you receive an offer, create your content and insert your own pictures right inside of your member account portal. You'll be required to use specific links and/or graphics in your posts, but it is always reasonable requests and very simple to do. Yes, I think you should join Social Spark today!

- Sponsored Tweets: Get paid to send out tweets — it's that simple!

TapInfluence (formerly known as BlogFrog): BlogFrog was one of the very first networks that I joined as a blogger back in 2010. I was very excited to see massive changes going on over the last year or so as they transformed into bigger and better things —  TapInfluence! You'll work with TapInfluence as an 'influencer' in order to provide top notch content marketing for their clients – the brands! They believe in the power of influence — share your stories and experience with your readers through some great brand partnerships when you join their team.

    I'd heard of (and am part of) many of these but will certainly have to check the others out. I've only recently really started getting more paid opps, and while it's still not much, every little extra bit helps when you're on a tight budget! Bookmarking now!
