Make Money Online with PayPerPost

Have you ever heard of PayPerPost? If you don't, you're "leaving money on the table", as some internet guru says. Read on.

PayPerPost or PPP is a website which helps content creators such as bloggers, videographers, podcasters and photographers find advertisers willing to sponsor specific content. The advertisers create opportunities that describe the content they are looking for (e.g. feedback, reviews, buzz, creative, video). The bloggers, or "Posties" as sometimes called, then choose opportunities in their area of interest.

Once the blogger has written a blog post or posted a video that matches the requirements, PayPerPost then reviews the post against its requirements and their terms of service and handles payment to the blogger once it passed.

Personal Experience
If you are skeptical about this, don't be. My very first PayPerPost post earned me twenty (20) dollars. Since then I earned another thirty (30) dollars. If you're asking why I have low earnings, it's because this blog has low PageRank - 2 as of this writing. If your blog has a high PageRank, you have a higher chance to qualify for more opportunities with higher pay to blog about and you get more earnings.

A Word of Advise
Some of your readers may not be please seeing some sponsored post (post sponsored by PayPerPost) in your blog. So it's wise not to do it everyday. My technique when I write sponsored post, I make it to a point that it is the first post I made on that day and then I post again immediately so that it is not my most recent post. This way, it is not as noticeable as it is when it's on the topmost position in you blog.

Where To Go From Here
If you have a blog, this is another source of income for you, on top of serving ads. If you have been blogging about anything but not getting paid, this is your chance to get paid. Sign-up to PayPerPost, submit your blog for approval and then get paid while blogging.
