Today we are talking Sponsored Posts and Paid Reviews. Like I’ve said before I am only promoting places that have worked for me. There are oodles of campaign networks out there that will pay you for Sponsored Posts.
When accepting a Sponsored Post: Make sure the theme or idea of the post fits into the scope of your blog. Ex: If your blog is geared towards healthy living make sure your readers can identify with the theme in your sponsored posts.
Sponsored Post Fee
What you charge for a sponsored post is completely up to you. From my experience the average blogger accepts anywhere from $15 -$250 per post. And of course the better your stats the more I’ve seen the number go up.
Depending on the amount of work you will be doing should also be put into consideration. Keywords, Title and meta description are very important to creating a valuable sponsored post.

Do you ever get those emails asking you to write or promote something for FREE. Don’t take them unless it is something you are passionate about and really want to do it for free. For instance, I am currently writing Sponsored posts promoting “No Kid Go Hungry” I will not be paid, but I am spreading the word on this very important movement. Reply to those free jobs with a kind note, stating your fee for a sponsored post with back links and your blog stats. I can tell you quite a few times I have had business’s take me up on my paid offer.
If you have any others to add please let me know in the comments. I’d also love to hear your thoughts.
