Sponsored posts are one of the easiest ways to make money on your blog!
But, you need to know where to start so you get paid your worth and know what to expect.
You've got your blog and some amazing content. Your email list is growing like crazy, and your pageviews continue to increase.
Your social media accounts have great engagement as your followers love what you share.
But, you want to find a way to make more than what you earn through your ad network or affiliate partners.
The smart way to do that is through sponsored posts!
But, if you have never done one before, you probably have no idea where to start.
First, you need to find someone willing to pay you. You also need to understand the rules set by Google as well as the FTC (Federal Trade Commission).
The biggest question of all is -- how much should I charge?
I get it as I was once in your shoes.
But, after more than a decade of working with brands such as Target, CVS, Academy Sports, Dollar General, Staples, and more, I've learned how to leverage my blog stats to earn more money and even get my sponsors coming back for more.
The simple trick for finding sponsors or brands who will work with you.

In 2009, I started my first site. Within 3 years, I was making five figures a month!!! I had capitalized on social media, and my site was growing steadily.
One of the first methods I discovered was sponsored posts.
At first, I was so excited that national brands wanted to work with me that I wrote for free (yikes)! When I learned I should charge, I wasn't charging my work (double yikes)!
After working with several national brands such as Zyrtec, Staples, Target, Walmart, and countless others, I learned not only what to do to keep my sponsors happy but also how to determine what to charge.
The biggest contract I had was one that was 5-figures!! It lasted several months but it was easy income for me.
