Getting interest for sponsored (paid) posts on my site

6 replies
I've been getting messages from others, say site owners, that they'll pay me a certain amount if I insert a link they have in mind into one of my articles (for example, a do-follow).

I've never accepted payment/ did a sponsored post before.

My skepticism arises since I don't think I get much traffic to some of these posts, or is that person interested in a specific article on my site because maybe it has good page authority, or something like that?

    Why don't you ask the person that contacts you about paid links? How could we know what they are thinking?



    It's a common occurrence for high traffic volume sites to get link requests. If that's not what you have, be very cautious about associating someone else's links with your articles, name, web site, or business. You may soon regret the reputation you get or all the places that ban your business simply by association with someone or a business.

    This is quite good strategy. Actually you can contact some bloggers or influencers, and be sure it will help you.

    I do not quite agree. I believe that it is best for you to discuss this issue with people who want to buy a place to link on your site. Sometimes this gives very good results.

    I'd embrace your fear-skepticism Zep. If people offer to pay for links or a sponsored post, you are doing something right.

    They key: have posture, and accept $100 and up per link, and $500 or more per post. Weeds out cheapies and leaves abundant, serious folks to contact you.

    I completely agree with Ryan.


    Don't undervalue what you have worked so hard for.
    I'd only promise to keep the link for a specific length
    of time, say six months. That would give you the
    option of raising more capital at a future date.
