IZEA for Bloggers
As a blogger we have many resources and places that we go to network with brands and accept work. One of these places that I have been a part of for years is IZEA. As early as 2009 I was working on compensated campaigns through their network. I’ve always appreciated having all of my opportunities in one place and that they rewarded me as my blog grew with higher paying opportunities.
That is what IZEA is good at.
IZEA not only gives bloggers a place to scope out possible work opportunities, but brands a place to find the best bloggers. It’s not only just blogging opportunities either, IZEA helps us monetize our social media channels as well, like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.
How does it all work?
Having a platform that gives us all everything we need in one place is one of the biggest perks of IZEA. They have completely eliminated the back and forth process of working with brands the traditional way (aka, email). With the traditional way, messages get lost, information gets misplaced, and it has the potential to turn into a big mess.
With IZEA, the platform neatly organizes opportunities by “New” (to which you can ‘bid’ on with your price), “Actions Required” which outlines the work needed to be done in a clean and effective manner, and allows you to review the opportunities that are pending taken/cancelled.
It’s a workflow that is wrapped up in an easy to understand, and easy to use package.
These are the reasons that after all of these years, I am still working closely with IZEA. They provide professional service, offer membership levels for everyone, and make it worthwhile for all involved.
This year, IZEA has really been a huge factor in our holiday budget. They have allowed me to do a little bit of extra shopping this year, and allowed me to GIVE a little bit more this year, which is so important during the Christmas season.
