Further to my earlier posts on Pay Per Post and Putting My Money Where My Mouth Is, I received my first Pay Per Post payment. It all happened rather quickly. I submitted my blog to Pay Per Post on July 30th, it was approved on July 31st and I received my fist payment today, August 6th. Not too shabby.
Three Ways to Earn
As I mentioned before, there are three ways to earn money with Pay Per Post. I’ve earned (but have yet to be paid for) money using the referral method. Apparently it’s easy to earn money that way, but not so easy to get paid. Payment depends on whether or not the referred bloggers actually blog and earn money with Pay Per Post.
Since I have no control over referrals that have signed up as a result of reading my post, all I can do is hope that they eventually earn money with Pay Per Post.
I have yet to earn money via the traditional Pay Per Post blogging opportunities. Currently there are two opportunities that my approved blog qualifies for. The subject matter for one opportunity doesn’t conform to the topic of my blog, and when I attempt to claim the other opportunity, I receive the following message: “All of the available posts for that opportunity have already been taken.” I don’t quite understand why the opportunities still appear if all the posts have been taken.
Direct contact with Advertisers
The third option, Pay Per Post Direct, is the way I earned money with my first post. I was contacted directly from an advertiser with the guidelines for the post. I followed the guidelines, wrote the post, submitted the URL to the advertiser and within 24 hours my PayPal account was credited.
It was easy and painless.
Oh, by the way for those folks who believe that your blog must have a page rank and that Pay Per Post does not accept blogs on the Blogger.com platform, my approved blog (as of this writing) has a non existent page rank and is hosted by Blogger.com.
