How do I find bloggers I can pay to write about about my free dating site?

by NaturalSpartan 13 replies
New dating sites face the chicken and the egg paradox of not having users means not being able to get users so I'd like to have as many people try out the site at once.

Paid blog post are the way I'd like to spend about $2000 of the ad budget...

I just can't find where to look for the bloggers who will do so. Googling "paid blog posts" only gets results talking about making money by blogging.

Any ideas?

    Hire freelancers. Go to odesk, elance, and freelancer. Post it as a fixed price project and specify in your post the requirement or qualifier that they should have a blog already.
    Try searching on blog networks too. That's an easier way to find blogs of the same or related niche. You can hire a freelancer to do the blog post outreach as well.

    Hire freelancers to write a few articles and submit the articles to the blogs that accept guest posts. If you're doing it for SEO, guest blogging is no long that effective. If you're doing it for traffic, there're many other channels to reach your target audience and drive traffic.

    I think the poster wants bloggers with their own websites to write about his dating site. Maybe I am wrong?

    If so, you can search for people on Twitter mentioning dating sites or find people with dating/self improvement type of sites through social media and proposition them to write a post about your site for money.

    Twitter

    It will take some time but find bloggers targeting young professionals, divorced people or ones who talking about dating.

    Google is a waste of time for this IMHO, Twitter is definitely where i'd go.

    What are you offering for how much content and how often?

    Look at my blog below and if my writing style fits what you are looking for I can write about anything and as long as I can keep steady on my own content I'll listen to any offers
