My blog is currebtly not bringing in money but it is bringing in lots of giveaway items. Through research I see that bloggers charge for people to advertise, post, and/or sponser them. What is that all about? I can't seem to fins any info on these and what rates you all charge?
I wrote a book that's filled with this info :) You can access it right on the home page it's listed under mom businesses here is the link : www.launchyouronlineempire.com
It's filled with resources and tips for you and if you visit www.Mompreneurmogul.com you will also find success stories:)
Basically you can charge for sponsored posts that means companies write you to ask if you'll post about a service or product they own. You can run ads and charge for that space. Some charge $30 a month some charge $150 it all depends. Just keep researching you'll find everything you need. And You'll be making money very soon :)
Rates vary so you probably won't find them listed publicly. For instance, I charge different rates depending on what the brand wants. I have had my weight loss/fitness blog for over 5 years so my rates will be much different than when I first started out. You can do sponsored posts, a one time payment or sell ad space. If I'm selling ad space, I require 3 months up front so I don't have to worry about changing ads monthly. I have done free and paid giveaways. Your blog is your business so be sure to treat it that way. The rates can also depend on your traffic numbers (unique visitors, social media followers, etc.).
