My Top Three Best Paid to Post Sites

I've been blogging for almost a year and I would just like to share how I managed to make a five figure income in my spare time. If I focused more on blogging, may be I would have made more as other bloggers out there earn hundreds of dollars a month and some are just stay home moms. For those who are just starting out in the world of making money through blogging, these sites are the best paid to post sites and I highly recommend them. Some have high task pay rates, quantity of jobs available, and of course, reliable and on time payout. Unlike other paid to post sites which give you a $5 task upon registration and then nothing else afterwards, these sites have been providing me a consistent source of income. Before we get any further though, make sure you have a PayPal account as this is where your earnings will go.

1. Sponsored Reviews.
Why I love this site is for several reasons. One, they have never been late on payments. Two, you can register multiple blogs with one account - so there's no need for you to create separate accounts for each blog you own. Three, there are a lot of jobs you can bid on and they also recently improved the way you can bid on jobs if you have more than one blog registered with them, bidding for jobs is much easier. In order to see if your blog qualifies, your blog must have at least 10 non-paid posts, be at least 3 months old, maintain a 2:1 ratio of non-paid to paid content, and other requirements that when you first register for an account and add a blog, you will be able to read upon. Payouts are done twice a month through PayPal and you can see the schedule of the next payout after you click on the My Account and then Payment Details tab.

2. Pay Per Post.
Pay Per Post s a great site to write on as well. They have also never been late on payments through my PayPal account. How the advertiser also wants their posts done are also stated very clearly - like how many words, if there's an image to be included, and all of the required links. I consider this important because it gives less space for errors and also ensures that your posts are approved the first time you submit it and you are also eligible for payment sooner. Payouts are done via PayPal and your posts are paid 30 days after approval. Here's a sign up form you can use to sign up for the service:

Your blog needs to be at least 30 days old, with at least 10 pre-existing posts written in the last 30 days, have chronological archives, contain original content, be a text/written content blog, meaning no message boards, websites, IM, photoblogs, vlogs, etc., have only one author, and should be in English.

3. SocialSpark.
SocialSpark is like the sister site of Pay Per Post and they share the same payment terms. They also share the same requirements and what's different about this is that if you see an opp you are qualified but it is already reserved, you can be added to a queue and wait if a slot opens and you will be notified via email. At least you have the chance of writing about that opp even if slots are already reserved.

Other sites I write for:

Blogsvertise is also another great site to write on. Same terms like the sites above - the posts are paid via PayPal 30 days after approval. These guys have also never been late on payments - except of course on holidays. Preferably, your blog needs to be at least 2 months old but if your blog is brand new, they approve it on a probationary status wherein you will still get tasks but at a lower payout. When your blog reaches 60 days or is cached with Google, your probationary status will be lifted.

Blogitive is also a great site to write on, except that there was this one instance wherein the payments were about a week and a half late when their promise is that payouts are done weekly via PayPal. Another thing I want to mention about this site is that when one of the blogs I have registered with them lost it's Google PR, I rarely got jobs for that blog again. So if you want to earn, this site is good, but if your blog loses it's PR, you're lost as well.

Blog Advertising - Get Paid to BlogSmorty.
Smorty is also a great site which pays on a weekly basis for all approved posts for that week through PayPal. Your blog must be indexed, must be more than 30 days old, and have at least 10 posts in order to qualify. What I didn't like about Smorty though is that when my blog lost it's PR, I haven't had any other jobs from the site. As a matter of fact, the last task I wrote about dates back to January of this year. I haven't had any new jobs since then.

LoudLaunch's payouts are done via PayPal and if your post gets approved on the 1st-20th, you will get paid between the 1st-5th of the following month. I've experienced delayed payments, but they are very responsive to emails that you send regarding payments. I did get paid after a week or so when payment was due, but at least I still got paid. The tasks I have taken all range from $10-$12 per post, so it's pretty big. Currently, most of their tasks are for a PR2 blog, but there are some occasional tasks even for some blogs without PR. I'm keeping my fingers crossed though that this month's payment will not be late.

I'll update this list when I stumble across a new paid to post site and more importantly, after I get paid.

Leslie - Thanks for the mention. We apologize for the late payments. We're working on some operational improvements that should eliminate that going forward. We hope you will continue to keep LoudLaunch.com on your "top" list.

@ John from LoudLaunch:
Thanks for dropping by. As I mentioned in my post, I like your service except for the payment part. I guess with some operational improvements that you've mentioned, payouts will be on time next time. Thanks.

Hi chubskulit and roseyrose! Thanks for leaving a comment in my post My Top Three Best Paid to Post Sites.

I haven't had any new opps from Smorty and I might just cancel my account there eventually if this keeps up. I'll be dropping by your hubby's blog!

You're welcome! I always like to share experiences I've had especially when it comes to blogging. Do check out ReviewMe, they're nice and they're also never late on payments. It's just that I haven't got many opps after my blog dropped it's PR.
