Blogsvertise - Get Paid to Blog

If you have a blog and would like to get paid for writing content, why not sign up for Blogsvertise? Although I just signed up for this one tonight, my understanding is that they must first approve your blog, then they will offer assignments based on your blog contents. You then write a blog entry about sponsor's website. Your blog entry can be positive or negative, but must follow certain rules such as that it must include at least 75 words, and provide at least three links to the sponsor's website.

I just signed up tonight, so I do not have approval yet. I will be waiting to see how this one turns out. I think it sounds like an interesting opportunity for someone who enjoys blogging. There are also opportunities from this one to earn money for referring advertisers to Blogsvertise, so why not give it a shot.

The only downside I can see to this so far is that newer blogs are usually only accepted on a probationary status, and thus receive lower paying offers than those blogs that have been around longer. According to the information on their site, they usually put sites without posts dating back at least 90 days on a probationary status. This can be decided on a case-by-case basis, but in addition to quality posts, they prefer them to be at least 60 days old or at least have a good status with Google.

I Have Been Paid By Associated Content

I just got my first payment from Associated Content . When I got online today, the payment had been deposited in my Paypal account. They are now added to my growing list of companies that have paid me. So far I have published two articles and been paid for both. I have a couple of other articles that have been submitted and are waiting approval. I think that this site could be a good source of income for those who enjoy writing quality articles.

Today's Tips - Spread The Word - June 11, 2007

Since many income opportunities are referral based, one of the most important things you can do is to spread the word about your opportunity. Once you have chosen an opportunity where you are confident that you will earn money online, the next step should be to advertise whichever affiliate program you have chosen.

You can go about this several ways. Depending on the types of programs you have chosen, some may work better than others may. You can look at my MyLot profile page, and see how I have added information about some of my other opportunities to my profile. I have also added links to other blogs where I write.

Be careful when doing this because some sites may not allow it, but the key here is to get your links out there on as many sites as possible. The more sites that contain your links, the better your chances of increasing traffic to your website. This does not only hold true for those who stumble across your link, but it also increases the chances of a higher search engine ranking.

One good way to do this is to create a blog or a webpage of some sort where you can post some of your links. It doesn't have to be a blog about Earning Money Online, in fact there are many other topics that would rank much better in the search engines. In addition to my Income Opportunity blogs, I have written blogs on topics such as Karaoke and FreeStuff.

Your webpage or blog could be about any topic you like, and still easily promote your affiliate programs. You can add them in as text links as I have demonstrated by linking the sites above, or you may insert seperate advertisements between your posts. Use whichever method works best for you, but try to get the word out to as many people as possible. Please read my upcoming tips sections for more information on strategies for spreading the word about your income opportunities, referral programs, or other websites you would like to promote.

First Payment From aPairOf

I got my first payment from apairof.com in the amount of $1.02 which would have been fine, except that I was greatly disappointed to find out that since they pay through Paypal, for some reason there are fees on this transaction of 34 cents, leaving me only $0.68 for my efforts. I'm not sure why this program has such fees attached when others don't, but there are certain Paypal fees that apply depending on the website, I will be allowing my next payment to build to a slightly larger amount before cashing out, just to see what happens.
