I’ve mentioned several times that I work thorough numerous different “Pay To Blog” companies. There are numerous reasons for this. The primary is that it gives me the greatest range of opportunities so that I can choose those that most fit my personality and the themes of this blog. PayPerPost had one infamous opportunity for vaginoplasty that payed very well, and was taken by many different posties. Since I have zero experience with the subject, don’t address such things on Philaahzophy very often, and don’t seem to have a reader base that would be interested in such things I passed it by. Having multiple companies offering opportunities allows me to skip such jobs and still generate the revenue I need to survive. It’s about freedom of choice.

But there are other benefits as well. It’s also the way that I can leverage the power of a the market to my own advantage. Different companies charge advertisers varying amounts, meaning that the blogger ends up with a varied pay rate (since advertisers are typically operating on a strict budget). Two perfect examples showed up last week-

1. CarsBlvd.com –

On Monday an opportunity to advertise for CarsBlvd.com became available at both PayPerPost and SponsoredReviews.

Bidding range: $5 – $15 (blogger would earn $3.25 to $9.75)

I bid $15 for the opportunity at SponsoredReviews and was given the opportunity which I wrote and earned $9.75, almost double what I would have received at PPP. I also am still free to write the PPP op as well, should I so choose and it remain available long enough. Though I probably won’t because the first one didn’t really make for very good reading.

2. PayDayLoanQuotes.com –

In the same time frame an opportunity for paydayloanquotes.com appeared at PayPerPost, SponsoredReviews and Smorty. Since I get paid monthly (and am working off a ton of credit card debt from my recent unemployment) I frequently find myself needing PayDay loans. So these opportunities are all but custom tailored for me.

Offer: $5.00

I took the Smorty Opp having forgotten that I had previously bid $15 on the (nearly) same one at SponsoredReviews. I skipped the PPP opp because $5.00 wasn’t enough to use up one of my three daily slots there. In this case I’ve written both the Smorty and SponsoredReviews opportunities, with the second reporting the results of the actions I stated I’d be taking in the first.

Just a little free advice for my visitors who write sponsored posts blending with yet another example of how competition is better for the consumers. (And people say anarchist theory and earning online can’t coexist on the same blog!)
