Making Sense of Sponsored Posts is finally here!

Are you a blogger but unsure of how to make money online? Or, maybe you’ve been blogging for awhile but haven’t had much luck with sponsored partnerships.

For some reason, sponsored blog posts and sponsored social media ads seem to scare the average blogger, whether they are brand new or have been blogging for years.

What do I charge? How do I find companies who will want to work with me? What are the rules?

There are SO MANY QUESTIONS when it comes to sponsored posts.

It makes sense – sponsored partnerships are something that probably 99.9% of bloggers want to pursue, but the problem is that they have no idea where to start.

Making Sense of Sponsored Posts is a step-by-step guide to creating and making money from your own successful sponsored posts strategy. This course explains all the ins and outs of sponsored posts and working with brands.

This course makes sponsored posts profitable. You can see your blogging income grow from the beginning, and the information in this course will help you well into the future.

If you’re not earning money through sponsored posts, then you are leaving money on the table.

Bloggers and online influencers can all successfully promote products to their audience and earn an income from sponsored partnerships, while being genuine and trustworthy.

I started Making Sense of Cents in August of 2011, at the age of 22, without any hopes of ever earning an income from it. It started as a hobby – just a way to journal my life and talk about my personal finance situation.

Then, around six months after I started my blog, a blogger friend of mine connected me with an advertiser and I earned $100 from that advertisement.

It wasn’t a lot of money, especially considering the amount of time and work I had already put towards my blog. However, it was very motivating to see that something I absolutely loved to do could actually make money. I honestly had no idea that blogs could even make money when I started mine!

After that first $100, my blogging income quickly grew.

I now charge, on average, around $5,000 per sponsored post.

I am now earning around $10,000 to $20,000 a month from sponsored partnerships alone.

And, they don’t take me a ton of time to write, publish, promote, and maintain. In fact, I spend 10 hours or less a month on my sponsored partnerships.

I’ve worked with tons of high-quality brands that I love, have received all-inclusive vacations for free, and have brands lined up out the door wanting to work with me.

Whether you are a brand new blogger or if you’ve been blogging for years, this course will help you with your sponsored partnership strategy.

I’ve talked to many bloggers about sponsored posts and the majority said they earn little to nothing from sponsored posts. I have also found that many bloggers were earning way too little for the value they provide to brands.

Throughout the modules in this course, we will go through everything you need to know about sponsored posts, from developing relationships with brands, legalities of sponsored posts, different strategies, and more. This is a course that will teach you anything and everything there is to know about sponsored posts.

    Hi! I have a new blog, but I am definitely planning on looking into sponsored posts in the future. I will be checking out your course! Thanks

  2. Amazing one, Michelle.

    Like you rightly said, any blogger that is not getting sponsored post is definitely doing something wrong.

    There’s so much money to made from sponsored posts especially if you understand how to land partnership with a big firm.

    Right now, I’m particularly focusing on my search engine traffic because that is one of the major things advertisers look out for. Next is where your traffic is coming from.

    Keep it up with your new course.

    Phew, a lot of money. It’s nice to see there’s still a lot of room for growth in sponsored partnerships, as soon as your site is getting some ‘traction’ it does make a lot of sense to try and monetize. Excellent work ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Congrats on the course launch Michelle. I look forward to taking it soon.

  5. I think this course is worth trying. Will checkout for sure.

  6. In you experience, how big of a following and platform do you need before companies are willing to work with you?

    1. I’ve seen people secure large partnerships right from the very beginning.

    Hi Michelle,
    in this course there is the possibility to put the sototyls in English?
    and also the possibility to decrease the speed of the video? You know I still can not understand spoken English well and it would be better for me with subtitles. Thanks

    1. The course is all text-based.

    Hi Michelle! At what point would you say it’s a good idea to get started? Unlike affiliate marketing, I imagine that sponsorships require more of a record? Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚
