Today it’s the norm for many business owners, entrepreneurs and more to be active bloggers. Blogging has many benefits. From a business standpoint, blogs bring attention to your business, opportunities, special offers and sales and so much more. From a personal standpoint, bloggers share about just about every topic under the sun. From the frustration of raising children, to life’s challenges, health issues, Mom related topics, inspirations and the list just goes on and on. For many, having a personal blog is liberating in a sense in that you can share things online and connect with others who have similar interests or are at similar places in their lives.
Because blogging has become such a mainstay in the modern internet age, there are many services that help you increase exposure for your blog, gain followers, connect with others and the like. When you search online, you will find there are certainly an abundance of places to promote your blog to the masses in cyberspace.
But, did you know there are ways to gain advertisers and derive some extra income from your blog or blogs? There are many ways to do so if you just go online and do some searching. It’s exciting to a blogger to have another party express an interest in being a part of their blog. Often times, bloggers go it alone when it comes to attracting compatible advertisers and parties that would be interested in being promoted on their blog. So, this Examiner did some research and began participating in some programs out there that claim to connect bloggers with advertisers to enhance the content and income they derive from their blog. Once such program really seemed to deliver for those interesting in doing so.
Enter Blogsvertise, a service that basically connects active bloggers with compatible advertisers who want to get the word out about themselves and are willing to pay for it. This Examiner has been involved, although not overly actively, just to see if this program indeed works and would be worth sharing to Examiner readers.
This test of the Blogsvertise system did indeed bring advertisers and offers to the Examiner’s blog. Although the participation was minimal due to time restraints, in fact there were about a dozen paid blog post offers that came along during a few month period. Each offer had it’s own criteria and requirements. Of the ones participated in, once the blog post was completed and submitted as such, the payment was there on time and they pay via Paypal. This program does deliver on it’s promise and payments.
The results you derive from this seem to hinge to a degree on the size and following of your blog, your subject matter and topics and how much effort you bring to it as well. While you might not make a substantial amount of money depending on those aspects, it certainly is a viable way to add some sideline income while gaining content for your readership.
The nice part about Blogsvertise is you are in the driver’s seat. The service attracts the advertisers who can pick you up and make an offer to you for consideration on your blog. Once you receive an offer, you can accept or decline it based on your preferences and what you think adds value to your blog. Blogging is about adding value to your readership, therefore this system is win-win if you do elect to accept any of the offers from advertisers within the service.
Advertisers within the Blogsvertise program, according to their website, are looking for the subject matter and topics many small business owners, home business owners, entrepreneurs and individuals blog about. From work at home topics, Mom blogs, recommendations and reviews, lifestyle topics, sports, home and garden, health and the list goes on and on. You can find out more about the program and what it can offer you and your blog here.
With paid blogging, one important consideration is the rules of disclaimers and it’s suggested that you disclose your blogging status on a Disclaimer page on your blog. This helps you be compliant with what the rules and laws are about paid blogging or deriving income from advertisers on your blog. If you do not yet have a Disclaimer page or disclosure on your blog, you can Google like topics and find some suggestions on how to bring your blog into compliance.
In order to participate in the Blogsvertise program, you must have an established blog that is more than 30 days old. It also must have a somewhat content-rich blog, meaning you must be active and not just creating a blog for the sake of making money.
