When I first started blogging 4 years ago, I had a goal, I wanted to review subscription boxes, because I was obsessed with them at the time, then I made some blogger friends and learned that I could work with some great companies, earn money and all whilst doing what I love most, writing and influencing. Now I want to share with you just some of the ways I have connected with brands, gotten paid and worked with some amazing influencer networks over the years. I’ve really grown and become a professional in my 4 years of blogging and there is always something new and exciting around the corner. If you are an established blogger who wants to earn income whilst doing what you love then I recommend signing up for the following networks.
Influence Central is amazing for established bloggers who want to earn income, connect with new brands and add quality content to your blog. I have been a member of Influence Central for years and they are my favorite blogger network of the bunch, the campaigns offered and the brands they work with bring new meaning to blogging. When I first started out, my photos were pretty bad, my content wasn’t the greatest but since I’ve been working with professional networks I’ve wanted to make the best impression possible, I’ve pushed myself to write better, do better photography and really become the professional blogger I once set out to be. With Influence Central, you can apply for campaigns you are interested in when new once are released, then if you are accepted you will be assigned to a campaign manager and given content to produce and write in your own words. Campaigns can be anything from Twitter shares to shopping, creating recipes, travel blogging, writing about causes, entertainment and more. Not kidding, some of the best brands and campaigns I have worked with have been through Influence Central and I urge you to sign up! Campaign payments usually range from $100 and even in the $1,000s depending on what your accepted into and the work that needs to be done. The campaign managers are amazing and give you all the tools you need to complete your campaign on time!

SheSpeaks is another of my favorite blogger networks to work with! Occasionally they will send you an email with a campaign to apply for, it will include all of the info you need and a payment amount. I have worked with some of my favorite brands via SheSpeaks and want a bonus? They usually pay within 3 business days after your post and social shares are a published! They also provide a dashboard with easy access to all of your campaign requirements. So when you are writing up your post you can refer to the campaign section and submit all of your links!

Social Fabric is a little different that most influence networks, when you sign up, you will need to complete the SoFab University Course, it’s online and it’s free. This may seem like a lot of work but it’s worth it, once you complete the course there are a number of great campaigns you can apply for, these are called shoppertunies. To be honest, I learned so much just from going through all of the SoFab University courses, it’s made me a better blogger, so taking the course is completely worth it and you will only strive even more in your blogging profession after completing it. Shoppertunities are their style of campaigns, usually you have to go into a store, take pictures of your shopping experience then create a craft, recipe or tutorial with the products for the campaign. To be accepted for a campaign you’ll need to submit a story idea, so be creative! Social Fabric has also rolled out a new way to earn with promotions! They now have a new promotions tab that lets you share on Twitter, you will receive $1 for every 1,000 twitter followers you have each time to you post a tweet, these go fast so you have to be quick! $1 per 1,000 followers doesn’t sound like a lot, but I have 89,000 twitter followers and that’s 89 for posting a tweet and promoting it a little in my own time, it adds up! Also when you are accepted into a Social Fabric campaign you will be assigned a campaign manager who will keep you informed through the process!

I only recently found out about The Motherhood and as soon as I did, I had to sign up, I’ve had an amazing experience working with them so far. The campaign managers are very informative, they’ll give you all the tools you need to write up your blog post about the brand you are working with. You will be sent occasional surveys to fill out, these are important, they determine if you are a good fit and are a way for you to show interest in certain campaigns. I’ve had a couple of campaigns with them so far but I’ve only been signed up for a few months so I’ve been delighted to have those opportunities! When you are selected for a campaign. they will give you a Stipend and once the campaign is complete you get paid! I worked with Neutrogena via The Motherhood earlier this year, one of my favorite skincare brands, needless to say I was thrilled to be doing what I love with a brand I trust!

I’ve worked with Everywhere Agency on quite a few campaigns, they work with a number of bloggers and brands that might just be a perfect fit for you! From my experience, campaigns are a little harder to get into but look out for that monthly email with campaigns, sign up and you never know, you may just be a chosen one! Occasionally they will reach out to member to help promote things, twitter parties etc. When you are accepted into a campaign, you will be given all the details, payment info, campaign info and everything you need to make it successful! They also have an amazing Facebook group filled with other bloggers!

I’ve been signed up for Linquia for a few years and they have some super fun and exciting campaigns! Payment works a little differently with Linquia, based on your first campaign, they will asses your followers and blog stats etc. You will then be given a shortlink to promote for the campaign you are working on. You can promote this link on your social media sites, twitter, facebook, instagram etc. and you are paid up to a certain amount based on the number of clicks you get. Campaigns also require a blog post and it’s always super fun to find out what new and exciting brands they have to work with! When you are accepted into a campaign, you can log in, look at your dashboard and track just how well your post and social shares are performing, live updates, I love it!

The best way to be successful from blogging is to create quality content, if you are rejected or not accepted into a campaign, don’t let that throw you, just keep working hard at what you are doing, work harder with each post and show off your best photography and writing skills and continue to apply, it will happen for you!
