With Linqia, you just sign up. Once you’re approved, just sit back and wait to get offers.

They will come right to your email inbox.

Although getting verified follows a tested procedure, this shouldn’t be a hassle for a professional blogger.


Blog Meets Brand

This is another awesome sponsored post network.

Their signup and notification process is similar to Linqia.

You apply to join the network, get approved, and then get notified when a match is available for you! For the same amount of work, this network pays about 50% more than Linqia.

Massive Sway

Massive Sway has an interesting setup!

Once you register and are approved, you have access to all their offers.

Just log in and view all the opportunities. There are usually 9-15 offers every time you log in.

There are requirements for each offer (like # of required Twitter followers, etc.) so make sure you meet the requirements before you apply.

They also run an awesome Facebook group for bloggers and associates.

What does the income look like? Each opportunity is about 4x the amount you get on a Linqia campaign and 2.5-3x the amount from Blog Meets Brand.


This one isn’t a sponsored network but an awesome way for you to get paid for professionally freelance blogging.

To get on Upwork you’d have to create a freelancer account (it’s free, with an option to upgrade).

On approval which wouldn’t take longer than a week you can head over to Search and type in blogging, blogger, blog post, article, or something similar and browse opportunities.

You’ll see the project goals, possibly the budget, hours needed, etc. If you think it’s a good fit, just apply!

If the client is interested in you, he or she will reach out and send you a message, and then your project can be started if you both agree to the terms (price per post, project timeline, goals, etc.).

Upwork allows you to run a personal freelancer account, an agency account or both. So, you’re sure to make money as a firm or a person.

Blogging jobs are mostly delivered on WordPress and a few other CMS as dictated by the client.

What really defines your Upwork success is your ability to submit interesting proposals and get the job done perfectly to earn an interesting job success score which allows connecting to bigger opportunities.

Sign up and you’ll start getting opportunities pretty quickly.

If you don’t mind earning a few bucks here and there for a post, this might be a great fit for you.

This is also an affiliate network.

You sign up as a publisher, get approved, then pick your offers and promote them on your blog.

You can promote them by writing a blog post, doing an email blast, social media, etc.

Keep in mind, there may be restricted promo methods according to the advertiser so make sure to pay close attention to that.

You can earn up to 100$ in your first month depending on your level of commitment.

Fiverr is similar to Upwork. Instead of applying to projects, you actually create your gigs (jobs that you do like writing a blog post, designing a Pinterest pinnable, designing a logo, etc.) and post them in your profile.

Clients will visit and purchase. Then you fulfill the order by providing the service! It’s called Fiverr because most gigs start at $5.

There are no limits to what you can achieve on Fiverr and if you promote your gigs, you increase your visibility and can earn even more.


Again, the good thing about most of the sites listed below is that they also allow you to include a bio with a link back to your website.

You can easily use this opportunity to link back to a hire me page on your blog, and as a result, get a lot of clients willing to pay you for your work.

In other words, by writing for most of the blogs on this list you are being paid to market yourself.
