Blog for money?

August 17th, 2007 by admin

Blog moneyYes it is true, your passion for writing can also make you money. Their is a company by the name of that connects advertisers with bloggers to create buzz about a topic on a grass roots level. It’s a win-win situation. Bloggers are honest in their review and the advertiser gets a down to earth posting on his product, service, or company.

I actually had the priveladge of hearing Ted Murphy, CEO of speak at a Performics affililiate conference in Chicago in 2006. He was wearing a memorable red jacket and really caught my attention on the stage. He was on the cutting edge of helping bloggers make a living from their writing.

I spoke to him briefly afterward and knew he was on to something. I chatted also with Kurt Peters of Internet Retailer and we both said he was a man to watch in the future. Now his company name is becoming well known in the blogger world. Bloggers prefer to get paid for fulfilling a job than trying to receive clicks on ads that pull people away from their blog.

As a blogger our goal is to be read, not pull people away from our website with some cold advertising message.  We love the intimate nature of the blog and we can help companies step off their high horse and join the consumers in the trenches.  I believe is going to affect the future of blogging for a long time to come. So if you are looking for ways to start blog marketing now is the time.
