The Noob is a big fan of paid posting. The reason being that it enables newb bloggers a way to make a few bucks with their blog. If sites like payperpost or sponsoredreviews didn’t exist, most bloggers would only make pennies. If you were lucky, you’d probably be able to pull in enough in one month to buy yourself a cup of coffee at starbucks. But, because of paid posting, new bloggers can make at least a few hundred bucks a month with their money making blogs. How much can you make with paid posting? Let’s find out.
I’ve made around $400 in paid posts from payperpost. Add another $400 at Sponsoredreviews, smorty, and other smaller sites. I’ve made more with referrals but i haven’t received payment yet from payperpost. I’ve been reading about how crappy payperpost is about paying referral fees. I guess we’ll see in the next month. Recently, i haven’t been getting any posting jobs over at ppp. I still regularly get Sponsoredreview gigs but that’s it. I think i can count on a few hundred a month on paid posting, but i know that i have to look elsewhere to monetize this make money blog. So, two months into my blogging career and i’ve made around $800 in paid posting. Not bad, not bad at all. I don’t think i will be able to pull in the same numbers in the coming months tho. Why? Cause of Colleen.
Colleen is the big money maker on ppp. As of today, she’s made $18,534.23. Great right? Let’s compare that total with where she was at a month ago. $18,165.74. That means that she’s made a whopping $368.49
That’s terrible. She is the biggest earner over at payperpost and she can only make around 370 dollars a month? What are they doing at ppp. I thought they got like 10 million in funding. Why not use it to get some more advertisers and jobs for the bloggers who made that site successful. Maybe it’s a fluke. Let’s look at another top earner at ppp. Chan made 13,473.03 in December, her November total was 13,363.11. Chan made $109.92 this past month. WTF!?!?
I know that google taxed them of their PR and they can’t take higher paying opportunities anymore, but still. Their earning makes me sad.
I will report again next month of these stats and see if this continues. But I’ve already given up on making a lot of money with paid posting. I still endorse paid posting cause it really is a great way to make a few dollars, but i realize that you won’t be able to make much from it. In the long run, it’s best to grow your blog to a point where you can get some private ad dollars.
