In celebration of one of my services as a sponsored content agent, I partnered up with some other bloggers in the Leaping Leprechauns Giveaway Hop that includes this $25 Amazon gift card giveaway.
Making Money with Sponsored Content
On my old blog, which I recently sold, sponsored content was one of my main sources of income. Over my 13 years of blogging, I developed relationships with many different brands (big and small). I helped these brands promote their products or services on my site and social media accounts.
Some of the sponsored content were exchanges, such as free hotel stays or even an all-expenses-paid family ski vacation! But, brands also paid me for posting content to the blog and social media accounts.
As the years went by and I amassed a bigger, more engaged audience, I was able to charge more for my services. One of my first sponsored content projects paid $25. By the end of my time on my previous site, I was making more than $1000 for a blog post with social media shares.
How to Get Sponsored Campaigns
How did I do it? Getting sponsored campaigns is both an art and a science. Here are some tips for applying to sponsored campaigns.
As I provided business and blogging services over the last few years, I noticed many brands and bloggers asked me about the sponsored content part of my business.
I realized there is a need for someone that can connect bloggers with brands, pitch on behalf of the blogs, negotiate payments, and more.
This is where my new sponsored content agent service comes in.
Sponsored Content Agent Services
I’m a blogger and influencer agent connecting a network of influencers and creators with brands for the ultimate cocktail of authentic, professional sponsored content that reaches a targeted, engaged audience.
Now, at the beginning stages of this part of my business, I have a few blog clients already of which I’m building their portfolio and story to share with brands that align with their message and content.
If you have a well-established blog and are interested in my services as a blog and brand partnership strategist and manager, please contact me to set up a time to talk.
