Are you new to the blogging world? Looking to find new blogging opportunities to either improve your blog DA, increase traffic to your blog or even find paid blogging jobs? Within my ‘The Bloggers Opportunity Guide’ I will outline a few different options you have to enhance any of the above questions you may have to increase your blog awareness.
The Bloggers Opportunity Guide
I have been blogging now for over 8 months and only within the last two months I’ve taken the plunge to look for blogger opportunities for my blog and myself. This has enabled me to work with a number of different companies through;
- Paid Collaborations
- Sponsored Post
- Affiliate Links
I’ve been lucky enough to work with some wonderful companies so far, and I am very grateful for this! Below I will outline some of the best ways to get involved within collaborations/sponsored posts.
1. Get Blogged
Signing up to ‘Get Blogged has been one of the best ways I’ve found to engage and write content for my blog and get paid for doing so! Paid Blogging Jobs is a great way to enable you to generate extra cash through your writing. The blogging opportunities through Get Blogged are updated on a weekly basis. The opportunities will outline the relevant DA needed to be able to apply for the opportunity. The Blogger Outreach will help improve revenue, rankings and grow awareness. You will then be able to write a ‘Pitch’ as to why you’d love to work with the company and explain the type of blog post you will ultimately write. Get Blogged therefore allows you to build your audience and engagement through different opportunities.
If successful you will be emailed letting you know this, you will then have 5 days to complete and publish the opportunity on your blog. You will then need to log back into your Get Blogged account to be able to ensure you get paid for the works. Once logged in make sure you add the link to the post on the opportunity section on your dashboard. Within a few days all monies will be paid into your PayPal account! It’s as easy as 1,2,3.
Another great way to find blogger opportunities is through twitter. A lot of companies/PR agencies advertise opportunities through this social media channel. Check out Hashtags such as #Bloggerswanted #PRRequest #Bloggersrequired. I’ve found quite a few amazing opportunities through this mechanism. Some may be paid others could be gifted. Just make sure you are happy with the ‘contract’ between yourself and the person/company.
3. Emailing Companies
Over the last month or so, I’ve started to email companies that I’d love to work with. I’ve made a list of blog posts that I am in the process of writing, such as a ‘Christmas Gift Guide’ and a ‘Autumn Night in Guide’. I have contacted a few well known companies regarding getting gift items which I can review and include within the posts! I cannot wait to show you all some of the AMAZING organisations I have got on board… Watch this space! I am no means a big blogger so receiving emails back accepting my proposals is such a reward feeling. I’d highly recommend giving it a go. Check for the companies PR or Marketing email address rather than your email go astray within the companies general email address.
Also using writing software suchas Scrivener 3 to ensure your copy is written in a cohesive manner for your audience. Writing is key to success when having a blog.
I hope you have found the bloggers opportunity guide useful and informative, if you do have any additional questions feel free to drop me an email or DM on twitter. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for ALL opportunities and take on board some organisations may not see your wealth so stick to your rates etc so you don’t get taken advantage of!
