Happy sunday everyone,
three weeks ago I signed up in SocialSpark and also wrote a little review about my first impressions concerning their service. Now I'm taking up my first sponsored SocialSpark opportunity to write about the experiences I made there so far.
For those of you who are still unfamiliar with SocialSpark and don't know what is going on there, let me give you a slight overview about their services. SocialSpark is a combination of several highly interesting services offering a powerful set of advantages to all ambitioned bloggers. What you get is a social network full of bloggers like you and me, mixed up with advertisers and marketing people, who are looking for us to write about their products. You can easily browse for new opportunities to blog about and get paid for that. The variety of choices to write about is absolutely breathtaking.
Another very interesting feature is that you can create new opportunities for other bloggers and have them post about your blog so you have the chance to market your own blog more effectively.
Furthermore SocialSpark provides you with a service to monitor your site traffic and rankings. You can also use that to check your favorite blog's stats and based on that see how others apply effective strategies to boost their site's visitor rates.
To ensure high quality of service standards for both advertisers and bloggers SocialSpark applies the following code of ethics:
- 100% Disclosure
Bloggers are obliged to disclose within their posts that they've been sponsored and paid for their work by SocialSpark.
- 100% Transparency
See who already took up one of your opportunities or an opportunity you feel interested in to blog about at SocialSpark. Check out other posts and discover how you can perform better than the rest of the blog world or meet the people who get paid and sponsored by you.
- 100% Real Opinions
Although bloggers are paid for writing about certain products and websites they are asked to express their honest opinions instead of falling into blind sugarcoating because they want to maximize their cashflow. Negative reviews are just as important as positive feedbacks, aslong as they keep a reasonable vibe in order to provide a productive feedback that helps everybody to do an even better job in the future.
- 100% Search Engine Friendly
Adding sponsored posts from SocialSpark to your blog won't affect your search engine rankings, because each of their links comes with the "no-follow" attribute that forbids bots to sniff any further into them. Thereby you won't suffer from penalties for doing sponsored posts.
Now try it yourself, make some friends at SocialSpark, have a shot at some of the interesting opportunities and feel free to add me up here.
Have a great weekend
