The Best Blogging Networks to Earn Money From
Ya girl has been blogging for over 4 years now, and it seems like I've seen networks come and go. And genuinely, I sometimes receive four or five emails a week asking me to sign up to a new community or network that is 'guaranteed' to make me money. They never do. But I thought I'd share the best networks & pages that have actually earned me money - and have withstood time...
Before you read on and start applying, make sure you know your stats. Check your domain authority (DA) on Moz and make sure you know your figures so you can pitch yourself! (Sidenote: most of these networks will only accept you if you have your own domain so are not a .blogspot or .wordpress blog!) If you're applying for opportunities, most websites will want you to pitch yourself, so it may be worth drafting a generic pitch letter that you can adapt to each opp!
GetBlogged is a fab website to get paid blogging jobs from. It's super easy to apply and there's a wide range of assignments that you can apply for! It automatically takes into account your DA and you can then only apply to the posts that work within this - but it's easy to do! Again, you need to pitch yourself for each opportunity, but once you've done that, it's a great start.
This is a great one for big campaigns. The website is incredibly easy to navigate and campaigns from here always pay incredibly well. It's worth checking this regularly to make sure you don't miss out!
This is probably the longest running network that I've been a part of. The website is slightly clunky, but I've always done quite well with the opportunities on there. I don't regularly frequent it as posts are often for SEO and guest posts as opposed to collaborations, but this is a good one to start at if you're looking to boost your income!
The opportunities on here are rarely high budget, but sometimes it can be worth looking at if they're only looking for guest posts.
Takumi is one of my all-time fave networks for Instagram. I'm really trying to step up my game on Instagram and this is a great way to do that! It's a mobile app and you do everything through it from applying for opportunities to submitting your content. I've worked with some really awesome brands like Gilette and Braun on here so worth considering. You do need a minimum of 1000 followers to apply, but once you're in, you're in!
I don't use this page much as it is definitely geared more towards mummy or parent bloggers, but again, it's worth checking for reviewing opportunities. There are options for reviewing services like recipe boxes to the odd sponsored post, so definitely check this every so often!
SocialNative is another great sponsored Instagram platform. I've worked on two campaigns with them for Martell Cognac and again, it's really easy to do! Everything is through the website so there's limited communication, and they pay through PayPal. I've not had an issue with them and would definitely recommend signing up! There aren't massive of campaigns that I can work on as a UK blogger, but there have been enough!
