In the last 9 years, I’ve published over 3,000 blog posts on RunToTheFinish and luckily through building my reputation/niche, sponsors started showing up asking not just to send me product, but pay me.
Which lead to a teen angst moments of “oh my gawd, am I good enough?” “how do I know what to charge?!”
It was a shock the day I realized my joy of running had become…business.
Now the first question any non-blogger asks me is “how do you make money?”
And the only question EVERY blogger dances around is “how much do you make?”
But everyone wants to know the secret sauce to working with brands. Yes, my friends there is one!Learn how to truly charge what your worth and why brands will pay it #blogging Click To Tweet
HOW TO SET PRICES
One of the hardest things about blogging is the lack of standards for both brands and content creators. It’s hard to compare one campaign to another as the requirements and budgets change.
But there is value in what you provide.
Traditional advertising is no longer providing the same results. Brands need authentic voices to spread the word and you shouldn’t be working for them for free!
An influencer outreach program is quickly becoming indispensable to the modern digital marketing strategy. Influencers are more valuable to brands now than they’ve ever been for their ability to deliver on social chatter, earned media, and action. — ClickZ
But what should you charge?? There’s a formula and Get Your Price will teach it to you.If you want to earn money from blogging through working with brands this course is a MUST.
Not a maybe, an absolute, wish I’d had this 10 years ago, I’d have made so much more money and probably served brands even better MUST.
I don’t recommend a lot when it comes to blogging, but this one just couldn’t be passed up!
In Get Your PRICE™, a self-paced course, our goal is to show bloggers how to maximize their income on their sponsored posts by setting the right rates and learning how to use them.
Get Your PRICE has five modules:
Module 1: learn about the PRICE method. Before you can set your rates, you need to know the methodology and what pieces are most important to your brand partners.
Module 2: Learn which analytics you’ll need to do the PRICE Method calculations.
Module 3: In module three, we show you how to crunch the numbers (including the spreadsheet templates to make it as easy as possible), learn your strengths and set your base pricing. Knowing how to set your price is important, but it’s also critical that you know how to use that information.
Module 4: See how to incorporate the PRICE method into your marketing so you can strengthen your pitches, update your media kit, and create case studies that WOW your potential clients.
Module 5: Time to tackle an area that we know a lot of bloggers hate: negotiation. We’ll show you how to negotiate from start to finish and we hope you’ll never feel nervous negotiating again.
Do it now! Brands are looking for those holiday bucks and you have a chance to be a part of it.
- A Nielsen report that shows 84% of worldwide consumers will take action based on the reviews and recommendations of trusted sources above all other forms of advertising.
- A DemandGen study that shows 72% of B2B buyers use social media to research a purchase and 53% rely on trusted recommendations to make a purchase.
- A Sprout Social survey that says that 74% of consumers rely on their social networks to guide purchase decisions.
This course was created by a woman I greatly respect not just for her huge brain and cat love, but because she comes with a level of experience that most don’t! Not only has she been a blogger, but she helped to run everything behind the scenes of the wildly popular FitFluential network for many years.
Danielle has worked with hundreds of brands and bloggers, giving her unique insights in to what serves both parties!
Now she’s putting her legal knowledge to work helping bloggers increase their income and get smarter with the legal pieces we tend to neglect (like setting contracts when you get that sponsored post!!).
Of course blogging is about more than making money! But for many it’s a great side income for work you’re already doing. If you’ve been trying to take things to the next level, seriously hop on this course and if you’re looking for a more in depth review of your current blog let me know.
I still have some limited spots available where I will review your site and social channels to provide specific actionable feedback.
PS – If you’re having trouble keeping up with creating content, then I also swear by the method that Katy Widrick teaches of learning how to make old content new!!!
New readers haven’t seen your recipe from last year and this will teach you how to make sure everyone sees it, thus creating less work for you!
