Blogging is a very lucrative activity. As a blogger, you can offer your services and be rewarded handsomely. You can either be paid to post on your blog or on your clients' blog. Either way, there is money to be made.
Today, there are some job boards for bloggers, which make it possible for us to easily seal writing deals with companies. Many companies are looking for bloggers to hire for many different types of blogging jobs. Some need bloggers to write articles for their business pages. Others need reviews for their products or services and the results can drive a huge amount of traffic.
While most of these companies pay direct cash as rewards, others pay with free copies of their products (worth a lot of money).
Recently, I created this job board for bloggers and that let me into doing more research about what's going on in the industry. So I decided I was going to come up with a few job boards for BasicBlogTips readers.
If you want to make money as a blogger, I encourage you check out these jobs boards. You are certainly going to find one or two offers that will fetch some extra money into your account

This a new member in the industry with close to 500 bloggers (as a I write this post). It's another bloggers' job board that brings bloggers and companies together.

As a blogger, you can be hired and paid cash by companies who need bloggers for business blogging. Product owners are also looking to pay you (cash or free copies) to review their products (Google friendly) on your blog.
This platforms goes further to allow product owners to recruit affiliates to promote their products. In this case, product owners with affiliate programs must be able to offer special commission rates to bloggers on this platform.
Simply put, if you are paying 50% commission to your affiliates, affiliate bloggers recruited through this platform must be paid a higher commission rate.
In order to succeed with this, your affiliate program should be able to generate a unique affiliate coupon code for each blogger taking part in your promotion. Fortunately, must affiliate platforms have this facility.
One good example of affiliate platforms that has the facility to generate coupon codes tagged to affiliate accounts is Zaxaa.
Absolutely, this will help in boosting sales. I encourage bloggers who do affiliate marketing to negotiate special prices for their readers. Most product others will be ready to give you a special discount code (tied to your affiliate account) that will help your readers save some money while buying their products.

Companies – How to hire bloggers for your writing jobs!
On these (and many other platforms), there are bloggers waiting to be hired. If you are not careful you may hire the wrong person.
While the hiring process should not be a pain, these are some few points to guide you through;
- Be specific in your job title
- Don't be too long or too short in your job description.
- Send 2 or more samples of the type of post you are looking for.
- Pay attention to bloggers' profiles (if they have written in the past)
- If you are not satisfied with any applicant, don't entertain anymore conversation. Avoid being distracted.
- Watch for errors while communicating with applicants: If an applicant makes a lot of mistakes while chatting with you, chances are high to commit those errors in the paid articles.
