Boosting my Holiday Budget with Social Sponsorship through IZEA
I've shared my love of IZEA many times over the years. It has been a long journey, and as my blogs have come, gone and grown, so have their services and they just keep getting better!
I remember when they were a baby company, first connecting brands with bloggers and I used their PayPerPost system with my baby blog that no longer exist. When Sponsored Tweets and Social Spark debuted, I followed them along for the ride and even though I'm not much of photo kind of girl, I even tried out Staree.
Then, they did something amazing, sparkly unicorn amazing; IZEA introduced their new platform, the Sponsorship Marketplace. I just wanted to run to their fun and crazy office and kiss someone for their efforts in creating a a system that makes it so easy to monetize my social accounts by working with brands that I am invested in.
Using IZEA's Sponsorship Marketplace, you have to opportunity to monetize blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Tumblr, YouTube, Flickr, Foursquare and LinkedIn. You can put a bid in for sponsorship opportunity that interest you or respond to direct offers sent directly to you.
Since I am incredibly picky about posting sponsored content, I really appreciate the opportunity to browse through many request, with the ability to only pursue the ones that fit my blog and social followers.
This month alone I have completed sponsored tweets promoting Walmart, Samsung, UPS and more, adding funds to my budget for my holiday shopping this year.
