What is Influencer Marketing?

Because of a newer form of marketing called Influencer Marketing, there are a plethora of sponsored posts opportunities on the web! Influencer marketing takes the best aspects of social media marketing and content marketing. Influencer marketing does this by combining the two and makes them more effective by using voices of influencers and their already loyal following to create and distribute their content to their audiences who are already engaged.  Because of you, the influencer, companies can put their products in front of more eyes. You are extremely valuable to these companies’ marketing strategy and you need to take advantage of that asap and start making some money!

Connect with companies as an influencer.

If you want to directly connect with companies to propose that you want to write sponsored content with them, email is the best way to start out with. If you have a company in mind you can look up their website and grab the contact information either from a ‘Contact’ page, ‘Work With Us’ page, ‘Opportunities’ page, or ‘Marketing’ page,  When you email them be sure to include who you are, what your blog is about, your idea of your sponsored post you would write for them, how you will promote the content to your readers, and how it will help them and an offering rate you expect to be paid at. Make this negotiable and be as professional as possible. This way sometimes works best if you have a specific idea of what you would like the sponsored post to be about and how you will market it. The direct email and nature of it help build a closer professional relationship with the company from the get go. They will notice that.

The most common way people land sponsored post opportunities is by joining an influencer network/ sponsored post opportunity network. You will need some blog traffic and social media following to get some of the higher paying gigs though. Once you increase your traffic and your following you maximize your chances of landing sponsored post opportunities.

Affiliate Networks and Programs

There are many ways to make money online as a blogger, one of them being affiliate marketing. Check out The Fail-Proof Guide To Get Started With Affiliate Links to see how easy it is to make money with affiliate marketing!

Earlier this month I signed up for Michelle’s Making Sense Of Affiliate Marketing course, which made a world of difference for me. It not only reassured me that I was on the right track but simplified everything step-by-step down to a T so I could add and tweak my strategy and hopefully perfect it. It is the best blogging resource I have come across and I have access to all the course content and Facebook group for life.

affiliate marketing

Michelle is the creator of makingsenseofcents.com and makingsenseofaffiliatemarketing.com and is a blogging superwoman. She quit her full-time job to run her own business and travel full time. She makes $100,000+ monthly from her blogging business and a large part of that income comes from affiliate marketing. Michelle’s experience is unmatched in the blogging world, at least I think so, and thus her course content is unique. Making Sense Of Affiliate Marketing was 100% worth it and has already doubled my affiliate marketing earnings within only 2 weeks. 

Ad Networks

You can make a killing on passive income from ads if you get enough traffic to your blog. Google Adsense is the most popular among ad networks and displaying ads on your blog. Check out Frustrated With Google AdSense? Try These Top Alternatives for a list of ad networks that are worth joining if Google Adsense just isn’t working out for you.

  1. This is a great list, thank you! What many people don’t know is that guest blogging is a great way to increase your own site’s traffic and SEO!

  2. I’ve used a few of these. Some are better than others, I like social fabric the best so far.

  3. I’m a member of a couple of these, and yes I’ve been fortunate enough to be on a few campaigns. It’s not just blogging though, it’s social media influencing or video making. SO many options to earn a little extra cash now

  4. I am so glad I read this! I only knew about a few of these, so I’m so glad you shared this list! Definitely pinning this so I can reference it later – and a lot! 🙂

  5. Your list will be of great help to bloggers just starting out. I used to be in maybe 5 or 6 of them. They do pay well, but I have eased out of my membership because I am now focused of running my own blogs.

  6. Wow I didn’t know there were so many sites like this! I took my blog full time this year and I’m excited to check all these out!

  7. This post is right on time! I love the amount of options that are out there for bloggers these days. Your posts are very helpful.

  8. Super helpful, thank you!
