Several years ago, blogging is simply an online diary for most. But as bloggers mushroomed online and internet users exponentially grow, business owners see it as a way to advertise their products making blogging as a business to reach possible customers. Thus, blogging now equates to money machine, that is if you know how to monetize it.
If you research how to earn though blogging then you’ll get numerous ways on how to do it. One that I’d say very practical on my part is placing link on my blog posts. As simple as that, advertisers are willing to pay you for just placing links.
But doing this can be a daunting task especially if the keyword has nothing to do with the article that you are writing. I’ve experience that many times and it took me hours tweaking my paragraph just to insert the keyword. Like you are writing arts and crafts and then advertisers want you to add “microphone xyz”. That was really a headache on my part. Nevertheless, I was able to insert the required keyword even though I talk about crafting.
But how about if advertisers provide you an article?
There are advertisers who are willing to give you the articles including the keyword that they want you to place link. This makes the job so easy. Because all you need to do is copy/paste the article. No headache, right?
Often there are advertisers who email me directly and ask for this kind of task. For me as long, as the article suits my blog theme then I’ll go for it. I’m just lucky that I joined Facebook Groups that recommend direct advertisers. But I only get tasks from them once in a blue moon, thus, I cannot rely to them alone when in terms of earning through blogging.
$100 Copy/Paste Value through Valued Voice
There is one website though that offers link placement, and I highly recommend it. This website is called Valued Voice (used to be LinkVehicle).
Last month I earned $100 from them from just doing a copy/paste article and placing link. I usually earn an average of $80 a month from that website. For me, the earning is not bad at all since my job is only to copy-paste the article to my website and place link and my only job is to add pictures which is not a requirement.
Now if you don’t like the writing style of the provided article you have the option to write your own as long as the article satisfy the requirements of the advertiser. But for me why waste time of writing if the articles are already good.
I called this copy/paste articles (that makes me real money) as blog fillers. You know how important to update your website with blog posts. As recommended, you must write at least 15 posts every month with at least 500 words for each post. Which is impossible on my part because I have a day job and taking care of my niece…. or actually procrastinating.
Currently, majority of my posts in my blog, Life Ascending, is from Valued Voice (I’m slacking with my blog, I know). However, I don’t recommend you doing that. It is still important that you write a killer post article every now and then. When I said killer post, one that is worth reading and sharing. As I said those copy/paste articles are only [supposed] fillers on my blogs.
FREE OR PREMIUM ACCOUNT
Valued Voice is used to be free. But When they changed the name early this year, they set an option for premium account with $70 fee a year. At first I chose free account. But I only get one to two copy/paste article each month. So I decided to give upgrade into premium account. And I say it’s worth every money. Every month I usually get minimum of four copy/paste articles for $20 each. By the way the pricing of each article depends on you. I didn’t go for high price because I know the value of my unmaintained blog. I only have average of 200 monthly page views (sucks right!), but at least I don’t have to wait 100K pageviews just to earn money.
If you are lazy to write blog post (like me….) or just have no time to write a blog post try Valued Voice a perfect way to update your blog while earning.
