In this post we’ll not cover the definition of sponsored posts and and how to get sponsors as we covered this on our previous post: How to get sponsored posts for your blog
How much do sponsored posts pay?
You can make between $100-$700+ per sponsored content. This opinion differs though depending on the blogger.
One thing you should note is that don’t think as a blogger you should charge less than $100 per sponsored content.
This is why!
The moment you come to an agreement with a brand, you take your time writing killer content for them and putting them in the limelight you should be pretty much indemnified.
Moreover, you’ll obviously make sure you pay attention to on-page optimization techniques and be on constant communication with them to make sure you get exactly what they want.
Never underestimate your work. You have the opportunity to make huge returns from sponsored blog posts.
