Have a blog, a social media following? This may be your perfect opportunity! Bid to promote posts and brands, complete the work and get paid!
What Kind of Work Is it?
Do you like writing? Do you have a blog? Are you popular on Social Media? IZEA is an online platform that matches up bloggers and social media users with advertisers. As a blogger, you will find sponsored post opportunities on IZEA, and you might even get a chance to get paid for tweeting or using your social media channels to promote brands.
IZEA used to run two platforms that may sound familiar to you: SocialSpark and SponsoredTweets. The new platform, called Creator Marketplace, will now combine all sponsored social opportunities provided by IZEA into one central location. They can now provide sponsored social campaigns across so many more social platforms, and you can be part of it.
It's a simple process: create your profile, bid on opportunities, create content, get paid. Make sure to fill out your profile correctly, so get the best opportunities right from the start.Click to Apply
How Do I Get Paid?
Once you sign up for the Creator Marketplace, you will be offered sponsorship from brands that are relevant to your profile and blog. You will be asked to use your social media accounts to promote certain posts or to promote a certain brand on your blog. Details will be on offer, and if you like what you see, you can place a bid. Once a bid is accepted, you have to process the request, and you get paid.
You can be a member of IZEA for free if you stick to the free plan. However, that means you will only be able to bid on five opportunities per month, and you can only cash in funds when you meet a $50 threshold. When you become a paid member, you get more bids, and the threshold will be lower. All payments will be credited to your account 30 days after publication, and you will need a PayPal account to get your money.
Qualifications and Requirements
You must be 13 years or older.
