By Edited Dec 30, 2015 0 3

Getting Started With Paid To Blog

Many people start blogs and want to get paid to blog online. There are quite a few paid blogging jobs out there if you know where to look. In this article we discuss a few ways you can get paid to blog and even how to monetize your blog for some extra income.

Paid To Blog By Freelancing For Others

Websites such as ODesk and Elance provide blogging jobs for people who want to get paid to blog. These paid blogging jobs are usually several different posts so you’ll need to be knowledgeable in several different subject areas. On these freelancing sites you can take tests that show you have the skills to do the job such as English proficiency, grammar, and article writing tests. It’s to your advantage to take these tests if you desire to become a paid blogger. Jobs are posted all the time on these sites so you could potentially make a lot of money and make a good name for yourself on those sites. Freelancing blogging jobs are the way to go because you’ll get much more money by the typical “paid to blog,” site in which you’ll need to do tons of work to see any real results.  It’s much better to take a freelancing blogging job and make some decent income doing what you love. To get started simple create an account with those sites and take a few tests to show your potential employers that you have the skills they require to be a paid blogger.

Regular Paid Blogger Jobs What to Expect

There are other blogging jobs online you can take which won’t pay you as much money but if you do enough of them you can still make some decent cash from them. PayPerPost for example, lets you pick your advertisers, name your own price and negotiate your own deals. You can get paid to blog on virtually any subject. You’ll end up working much harder than if you take a job where you’ll be guaranteed some income at the end of your work such as a freelancing blogging job. Many of the other blogging jobs need you to already have a well-established blog before they will accept you as a member and you’ll need to create posts about things that might not fit your blog in the first place. Many “paid to post” sites come and go all the time so you really need to shop around and find one that will work for you in the long run. Do a Goggle search and be sure to read all the terms of a paid to blog site before you join one.

How to Monetize Your Blog

An easier way to begin to make money as a blogger is to simply monetize your blog with advertising or affiliate programs. This way you have control over how the ads work and you can find advertisers that fit into what your blog is about. You could use Amazon, Click bank, Chikita, or the programs from Google to help you make money with your blog. Just be sure that your whole blog isn’t one giant advertisement because ethis isn’t the best way to go. You’ll need great blog posts and longer articles to make people want to visit your blog again and again. This way you’ll develop a following on your blog and it could make money for you long into the future. Look to the many advertising partner networks you’ll find online and see what would be suitable for your blog, then apply to join and start advertising programs on your site. Use some sort of analysis program so you can track where your visitors come from and what they are looking at on your blog.

You Can Get Paid to Blog

Blogging can be a great way to make extra money and if you’re good at it, maybe even a full-time income. Look to freelancing paid to blog jogs first before you try any of the other sites online. Work on your own blog and monetize it with advertising programs and you’ll soon see some blogging money in your pocket. Don’t expect great results overnight it will take some time before you see revenues from your blog.

Some good information here. Elance, that's a new one for me. I like the idea of the testing for proficiency/skills. Thanks.
