Send Your Link:
Once you have established yourself a bit in the blogging world, you can start sending your blog out to some larger companies. Essentially, your blog is your writing sample for potential employers. The owners of these websites might hire you to start blogging for their company or to turn your blog into the company blog. Basically, your blog is acting as one of the several pieces of your application package for the job. Hopefully, you will start to receive some compensation once you are hired for the job.
You might have found some sites that allow you to blog on them for free, but they will put advertisements on the site. Depending upon the number of clicks the advertisements get, you will receive some compensation. Use social media to your advantage in this case. Post your link on your Facebook page and ask friends to click on any advertisements that are of interest to them. Be sure to let people know when you have written a new blog post. It’s likely that the ads will refresh themselves from time to time, so viewers will have something new to look at.
Another type of program that exists for bloggers is a pay-per-visit type of deal. You might be able to start a blog on a site and get paid when people come to look at the site. Since you are posting blogs on a certain company or entity’s website, you might be assigned a certain topic about which you are supposed to write. When people come to the site, you will receive a certain amount of money for each unique visit. Once again, you can completely use social media to get the word out there and to encourage your friends list to visit your website.
