Welcome to Blogging Opportunities + Resources – Vol. 2 where I share paid blogging opportunities, product review campaigns and blogging resources. In this edition you’ll find ways to make money with your blog and social networks, tools to make blogging and social media more efficient, plus tips and tutorials from fellow bloggers. Some of these may be affiliate links from companies that I personally have worked with and recommend.
Blogging + Social Media Campaigns
Make money promoting brands on your blog and social media networks. Some of these are paid per click while others pay a flat fee. Click each link to sign up.
Panthera Network – This affiliate network lets you choose from a variety of programs (beauty, freebies, family, pets, books and more) to promote. Most of them pay on free sign up.
Share A Sale – Find campaigns and banner ads that fit your target audience. I’ve been with them for a long time and they’re one of my absolute favorite companies to monetize my blogs with. Click the link to sign up. Once you have an account, here’s five affiliates I suggest signing up with. Some of these even pay you to promote their campaigns with bonus posts, using your own affiliate links! Peach Couture – Panda Hall – Craftsy – Stella & Dot – Mod Cloth
Blogging + Social Media Resources
Apps, tools and resources to make blogging and social media management easier and more efficient.
Facebook Page Insights – Facebook provides valuable information about your followers in the Insights section of your page. Click the link to watch a video I created to help you get started.
Manage Flitter – I love this tool and use it will mine, and client’s twitter accounts. With one click you can quickly see who is not following you back. You can also filter by who does not have a profile photo, inactive accounts and more. They have free and paid versions.
Dropbox – If you’re like most bloggers, you have photos, documents and videos on your hard drive waiting to be uploaded. Instead of letting them sit there, taking up room and running the risk of losing them if something happens to your computer, store them on Dropbox for free. If you need more room, they also have a paid option but I’ve always used the free version and have been happy with it.
TSU.co – This new social media platform handles a lot like facebook, with one major difference – it shares revenues with their members. If it amounts to anything will have to be seen, but for now I suggest clicking the link and securing your name.
Tweetdeck – If you manage more than one twitter account, you need tweetdeck. It’s free and super easy to use. I schedule all my tweets for the week and I can switch back and forth between accounts without having to log in and out.

These are some great tips! I thought I knew almost everything 😉 Have you ever tried using google drive? I feel like I ran out of free dropbox space quickly and I really like using google. Though I’m almost out of free space with them now too. haha
I use Tweetdeck all the time and it is definitely a necessary tool. I have also started to use Share a Sale and need to try it some more as a monetizing tool.

I use a lot of these programs already but maybe not to their capacity. Managefilter has helped me grow my twitter following by 100%
Thank you so much for sharing these. I finally hit my next goal of 10k page views, so I’m ready to think more about monetizing! And to start striving for my next goal of 10k Uniques!
This post is so on point with the resources needed to make money as a blogger. One thing that bothers me is that some as for your social security for tax paying reasons, how comfortable are blogger with giving this information, can we trust these companies. .idk that’s my only concern
That’s a great question Sacha. For me, I take it on a case by case basis. I always try to hold off on giving our my SS# until I am due a payment, that way if I don’t get any work from them I didn’t have to give them my personal info. If a company requires all the tax info to be filled out ahead of time, then I weigh how reputable the company is.
Perfect!!!! Wow great tips!
