Here is the truth I get paid to blog. I have to get paid because having a site is expensive. I have blogger rates. It takes a ton of time. I estimate this site takes about 150 + man hours a week. Yes, I have a staff. I have to pay them. How do I do it? I charge money. I can’t pay them and my bills with face cream, coupons for a free frozen meals, toys for my children, mouthwash, and more.
How do you get paid. The first way to get paid is figure out what to charge. Then you need to actually prepare a media kit. I had mine done by Dawn you can find her at [email protected] You can check it out of media kit Madame-Deals-Media-Kit-2.
This is how you get paid. You get paid by selling your sidebars to sponsors. This is the equation I use for Blogger Rates. I take my top producing 320×250 ad and that is the rate someone receives if they want 320×250 worth of space on my site. If they want a button size ad 125×125 on my site I charge them 1/4 of the 320×250 ad size. If they want a banner I charge the same rate as a 320×250. I sometimes give discounts if they pay for multiple months. I also tell people if they pay each month on time I will not change their rate as my site grows. You can charge more for above the fold (the fold is what you see before you scroll down). I offer several other options. I charge less if they pay in advance and buy 6 months or more in ad space. I also complete the deal by offering a post or shout out on social media for the customers that advertise on my site. You should NEVER change your price just add more value to your offer. If you change your prices then you lose credibility. I only change my price and give discounts for prepaying and for multiple month purchases. I only do this because it saves me time.Continue reading
