There are many middleman services between advertisers and bloggers. In order to get bloggers to write about the company, products and services, the advertisers can allocate the budget to engage bloggers to write sponsored post about them. If you are a blogger, you might have heard about PayPerPost, ReviewMe, Blogvertise, BloggerWave. Smorty is another service that provides the same platform.
Unlike PayPerPost, Smorty doesn’t require the bloggers to clearly state that a post is somehow sponsored. Advertisers is paying for the opinion of bloggers, and at the same time getting a link with special request anchor text to their website. Bloggers get paid for blogging. It is a great arrangement for bloggers to get extra income for their blogs.
I found some rules at Smorty that are to the advantage of the bloggers:
- bloggers get paid on a weekly basis.
- bloggers can accept a campaign, only then write a post about it in 72 hours. That’s a great way for bloggers to secure a sponsored post without having to write immediately about the campaign
- Smorty doesn’t strictly require bloggers to write in positive tone. Instead, bloggers are paid for their opinion.
- minimum 150 words and maximum 400 words for every blog entry. It is good to set a standard.
If you want to have blog advertising for your company, give Smorty a try.
If you want to be paid for giving opinion, register your blog with Smorty.
