Giving Social Spark A Shot
- 16 Comment
I was really mad with PayPerPost when they left tons of bloggers out to dry when the Google PR crackdown hit. Many of my blogs (some I didn’t even use PPP on) still are affected.
Does SocialSpark Deserve A Chance?
Whether it does or not, I’m giving it one. First and most importantly, all sponsored posts are disclosed as well as no follow. However that means that the opportunities are lacking, the same problem we saw with PayPerPost. Most opportunities are off topic and could be hard to include into your blog.
So far SocialSpark has worked well with Its All Free Online. For several days I had a sponsorship bar run, which got about $3-4 per day. It was right on topic with my blog so it was great, it looked like it belonged there.
I was also able to take an opportunity about coupon codes, which again, worked perfectly. That makes it about $20+ worth of stuff with little effort. The sponsorship was easy.
Well, the sponsor bar was supposed to run for 6 days, but for some reason I didn’t get paid on the 22nd or 24th. That’s roughly $6 lost. We’ll have to wait for support to right back on that one.
With my sponsored post I wrote and submitted it about a week ago, and it still hasn’t been approved or declined. The bigger problem for me is that I need that post to credit so I can get my first cash out. A week is a little long isn’t it? If I have 12 hours to write it, they should have that long to approve it!
What are your thoughts? Unfortunately I don’t see a referral program, but you can still join.
