This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
Besides articles and article marketing, I was curious about other ways to earn some income online. I did a basic search on Google for ways to "monetize" my blog and came across many different websites. A lot of them had stringent requirements for how old the blog must be, how many posts the blog must already have on it, etc. However, SocialSpark did not have any of those requirements and users should find it relatively easy to sign up.
First, go to SocialSpark and click the link called "get started" under the "click here to create a blogger account". The "signup now!" form could not be any simpler or more straightforward. It is located on the right side of the page and asks the user to submit his or her desired username for the site, password, email address, and blog URL. Sign up for SocialSpark
Click "create account" and an email will be sent for verification of the account. Bloggers should click the link in the email to activate their profile. From there, they can sign in to SocialSpark and begin monetizing their blog! Upon logging into the site, users can click on the "opportunities" tab and can view opportunities to either place ads on their blog, write reviews on their blog, or drive traffic to advertiser's websites through social media sites such as Twitter. When a user clicks on a specific opportunity, he or she has the option of accepting the opportunity or not. If a user chooses to accept the opportunity, he or she must read the guidelines and Code of Ethics before posting about the opportunity on his or her blog. Read the Terms and Conditions very carefully and also the required information in each opportunity, as it serves as instructions on how to get paid by the advertiser. Finally, enter some details about the post itself and where it is located so the editorial team can review it to make sure it has all the required elements for payment. Then click "verify post" and get paid! It's that easy! For its ease of use and variety of opportunities, I would have to say that SocialSpark is one of my favorite sites to blog for. I'll be back with more updates on my progress soon!
