A great way to bring in some extra cash while blogging is to do a sponsored post. These work best for those who already have popular, established blogs. Companies will see your blog as a great outlet for advertising. Admit it, if a friend recommended a product to you, you would be 100x more likely to use it than just by watching a commercial alone. Advertisers know this! So, how do you go about writing a sponsored post? This guide by Becky at Blogging On The Side will show you how. First, she shows you how to FIND people who will pay for posts, then how to write quality content that will keep them coming back:
Keep it natural: I will write a normal post and just throw in the product information, as naturally as possible. I don’t want it sound like a commercial.
Keep it similar in style to your other posts: If I am sharing a recipe, I try to make it as normal as possible. Yes, these ingredients are great & you should try this product that I am including in this recipe.
Try to do your very best work: Make it great and they will call you again and again.
Add great pictures that are pin-worthy: I usually go back in and add a great pin-worthy picture.
