Some time ago I wrote a post about Content Creation and Copyright with Sponsored Post Networks. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend you do.
Basically, you as a content creator are the copyright owner of the content you create. Unfortunately, some sponsored post network companies don’t think this should be the case and instead require copyright to be held with them. This is not right.
Since that post, many bloggers have given up those specific sponsored post networks in favor of better, higher paying, and blogger favoring networks. They have also come forward and asked which sponsored post networks I recommend working with.
Since monetizing your blog is something that many bloggers would like to do, joining a sponsored post network is the best way to start and get your feet wet creating content for brands. So just because there are a couple “bad apples” out there that doesn’t mean that you should not join a network and do sponsored posts.
Ads and affiliate links take time to build a solid income but sponsored posts are a fantastic and can be a lucrative way to build your blogging income and get your name out there to brands and companies.
So here’s my list of sponsored post networks that I have personally worked with or recommend based on their terms of service and not requiring copyright with content creation.
First, what is a sponsored post network?
Simply put, they are the “middle man” between you and the brand you are creating content for. With all companies, there are pros and cons, variances in pay, and variances in the requirements of creating content for a brand.
This is not an all-inclusive list, it is just the list of networks that I have either personally worked with or have read over their TOS so as to make sure they do not take copyright from the blogger.
Links have been provided so you can sign up for their networks without having to do a Google search.
I have personally worked with:
- Activate by Bloglovin’ (formerly Swerve)
- Influence Central
- One2One Network
- Pollinate Media
- Real Clever (formerly Clever Girls)
- Sway Group (formerly SITS Girls)
I have not personally worked with; however, I am a member just have not received any opportunities as of yet.
- Acorn Influence
- Blog Meets Brand
- Collectively, Inc.
- Everywhere Society
- Open Influence
