For those who read my previous post about Should Blogger Get Paid? I receive a few email from PR company and some of blogger where there not really understand how blogging jobs pay rates.
So, I have done few research which is it came out with the conclusion there have 5 Common blogging jobs pay rates. When it comes into the money, it will become a sensitive issue. I understand that a lot of companies try to cut cost. When the company need to cut cost, the department that will come out in their mind at the first place is the advertising department.
I understand that every blogger have their own way to advertise their blog. So, below is the 5 common methods how blogging jobs pay rates and I hope it can help any organization that interested to work with blogger have a clear picture. Some of you might call it as advertorial or sponsor post. At the end, it is still the same platform for you to do the blog post in order to advertise client product and earn some income.
Per Post Pay
Many blogging jobs will pay you a flat fee for each post you write and publish. This is where normally you require do 1 blog post and review the product or services and at the end they pay you based on how many blog post you do. Beware of blogging jobs that offer a per post fee with caveats that only “approved” posts will be published or a similar restriction that might mean your efforts could go unpaid.
Monthly Flat Pay Rate
Some blogging jobs will pay you a flat rate each month. This is where people call it as contract. Typically, you’ll have requirements to meet in order to earn that pay such as a predetermined number of posts must be published each month. For those who in the contract, there have advantage and disadvantages. Yes, you will receive stable income but you might need to follow their rules for sentence things. You might not able to attend or do advertorial for other company which is it might be the competitor to which advertising company that you tight up with. This is how the advertising company would like to have their loyal blogger.
Monthly Flat Rate + Page View Bonus
Many of the best blogging jobs and networks pay bloggers a flat rate per post or when monthly requirements are met plus a bonus based on the number of page views the blog receives each month. Some of the advertising company will give an extra pay for those who are have a contract if they manage to maintain certain level or manage to increase their reader. For example, a blogging job might offer you a bonus for every 1,000 page views or for incremental increases over the previous month’s page views.
Page Views Only
This is a risky payment method for a blogger to accept because so much of the pay is out of the blogger’s control. Another definition is you need to have high impression or high visitor for the advertorial blog post in order to earn a lot income. For example is if you has been given “A” advertorial, how much the payment that you will earn is based on how many people visit the particular blog post. Certainly, bloggers can promote their posts through social bookmarking, social networking, commenting and so on, but a great deal of blog traffic can be tied to the blog’s layout, coding, advertising, and more, which the blogger can’t control. Don’t fall victim to pie-in-the-sky claims of enormous traffic and page views from a new blog or blogging network. For an established blog, take the time to research that blog’s Technorati, Google and Alexa page ranks to get an idea of whether or not traffic claims are accurate before you accept a blogging job that pays for page views only.
Some of you might do not familiar with revenue sharing. Basically, some of the blogging job that pays you based on revenue sharing alone is typically not a good deal for the blogger. Why I say so? While that’s not always the case, it’s more often true than false. In simplest terms, under this payment agreement, the blogger receives a percentage of advertising revenue generated on the blog. Some of advertising methods are the same you could use on your personal blog. The hope is that the blog has the potential to generate more page views, faster than you could generate on your personal blog, thus the pay would be better than if you simply monetized your own blog. Sometimes revenue sharing is combined with another payment method, but when it’s the only form of payment offered, be very cautious. Source
As the conclusion:
– No matter how blogging jobs pay rates are, make sure you receive the payment from the particular client who approach you.
– You still need high traffic in order that to receive advertorial.
– The way that how you do advertorial will definitely affects your blog reader.
– Sometime money is not 100% important. You can build up a network as well.
– When it comes to advertorial, please set up your own level. Some people might “you give me free stuff, I do good review for you”
