You can then withdraw your earnings via PayPal. The more you sell, the more you earn on Fiverr.

I love this because Advertisers who go to Sponsored Reviews have their own requirements for what they want in each post. Once you’re account and profile is on SponsoredReviews, advertisers will visit your blog and if they’re interested to buy ‘advertising space’, they’ll contact you. Bloggers can also approach advertisers directly.

    Hi Segun
    Great list here,
    Almost all of the list mentioned here is new to me
    It looks like worth trying to make some money :-)
    But some platforms mentioned here are just time waste
    one may not get the desired results for their hard work
    for just an example Triond. I had an experience with them
    and can say that its a mere time waste
    If you can increase the size of the screen shot it will be good
    May you have a wonderful time ahead
    Keep sharing
    Best Regards
    ~ Philip

    Last night, I was surfing the net, reading some article from, and never thought that we can earn money or we can get paid writing and blogging from this site. Interesting too that they offer the highest payout to its writers and get paid every month. Not bad at all, monthly would be great since they pay big.

    Never heard about ” Yahoo! Contributor Network” too. Well, your passion in photography and writing will be used here. Nice one! I like the upfront thingy and It sounds great!

    I found this post shared on, the Internet marketing social networking site, and I “kingged” it and left this comment.

    Writing and getting paid is one of the ways to earn money online. If a blogger or writer is able to churn out valuable contents, there are many websites to share the “value” and get paid from it.

    I agree with the list here but users should be reminded that each of these websites has its own policy. The writer must abide by the rules to earn more and get exposure!

    I have shared this same comment in where this post was shared and “kingged” for internet marketers.

    I wrote for Article teller, and it was tough over there as the assignments were less. I did got paid. I also wrote for iwriter, I got paid two times, the only problem here is high rejection rate and no transparency.

    The 15 sites are all legit and one can try in all of them, one by one and fit somewhere to earn steady stream of income.

    I highly recommend yahoo contributor network, they are very good, many of my friends write for them and get paid well.

    Nice article, I found this on kingged.

    Hi Sgun
    Now in this age of stiff competition it is hardly possible to earn full-time living from personal blog. This happens most difficult for those who are full time doing blogging. Inflation is up and they need more money to manage their living. For this they need side income and therefore they need to write or do any other blogging chore as freelancer as well. Many successful bloggers of today are also freelancers.
    You share a wonderful list of sites that pay you for content writing. All are quite reputable sites and all of them offer both services of paying for contents and giving back link for contents.
    Thanks a lot for sharing this awesome resource. I found this post at Kingg dot com and that is why kingged it.

    Great list Segun!

    I did not realize there where that many places to get paid for writing. I also did not know that about paid their writers.

    Hi, Segun! :) It’s my first time to read a blog post from you.

    I think you’re talking about the paid guest blogging. As far as I know, guest blogging has been one of the most suggested ways to earn money online and to gain some blogging benefits as well.

    This list of websites where you can guest blog is indeed helpful. Half of these websites listed are foreign to me, but I’m pretty sure that they are professional blogs too.

    For writers who are earning money online through this method, you should wisely pick the right website to fit your writing skills and niche. Aside from this, you should also ensure that the website you have chosen is not a spam, but is professional and trusted.

    As for me, go to those websites who are well-known in your niche.


    By the way, I found this post shared on

Olaotan Richard Ceo Aims Digital Network Speaks On 5 Powerful Tips To Digital Marketing Success

Segun Balogun



Digital marketing is unarguably one of the most effective and strategic marketing tools that the internet has brought to our doorstep. Businesses all over the world are churning in millions and even billions in returns each year. Digital Expert Richard Olaotan, the CEO of Aims Digital Network, gives some powerful and winning business tips for digital marketing.  


1. Visual Elements

Everyone is attracted first by what they see. Having visual elements in business is key because people can only buy what they see. And on the average, a prospective client has got to see your product or service ad about seven times before they make a purchase. Whether it is your business logo, mascot, color theme or font you are choosing, the whole idea is to catch the attention of the audience, while also maintaining that attention enough for them to remember your brand. When advertising on social media, visual creativity is key. You must, at all times, ensure that whatever it is you are putting out there is as relevant as it is eye-catching. Your digital ads must appeal to the aesthetics of viewers and will be remembered. Using images that have consistent aesthetic and gives your campaign that familiarity every time it pops up is key.

2. Invest wisely 

Truth is there are several digital marketing tools and services out there, but not all of them will create the same level of impact you desire for your kind of business. So, take time to analyze your business and the service or product you wish to put out there, the age demographic you are targeting, and the location too. Afterward, you can go through the various digital marketing platforms available and select the ones that will most effectively achieve what you desire. 

3. Understand the buyer process

If you can understand the journey of a buyer, you will know what marketing strategy to present at each stage. Through buyer analytics, you can deduce the actions a visitor takes throughout your website, and use this information garnered to make the buying process easier for them. For instance, Google analytics gives user history that can help you better understand where they are in their buying phase.

4. Understand your target audience

Before delving into employing digital marketing tools, it is highly advised that you have a clear understanding of who you are targeting to make your bulk purchasing audience. Everyone is a potential buyer of your product or service; however, an age range or designated people of certain classes are the best benefactors of your product or service. Those are your target audience, and in digital marketing, you engage marketing tools strategically to send unique ads to this audience.

5. Analyze your social media metrics

To see the digital marketing tool that is most effective for your product or service, Olaotan Richard advises that you analyze your data and tie it back to the direct result it produces. The best SEO company in Chicago or anywhere else would first help you find what promotes engagements for your business niche. With their finding, they can easily suggest which tool or ad style is most effective for you.

Successfully trading online



The technology of today allows  you to buy almost anything online, and making it easy to shop internationally as well. On the other hand, you can also sell and even trade your unwanted items. Moreover, there are many websites which can be sued to trade successfully, but, you will have to have a great strategy on how to go about it, otherwise it will be hard to earn some money. Keep in mind that waiting for promotions and deals can help you in finding amazing products with incredible prizes.



Finding the best place to trade

It is important to find a website that will allow you to trade without any issues. Moreover, you will even be able to  make some money; if you plan everything out, and know when it is the right time to sell or buy, you can have money rolling in. Keep in mind that it will be similar to  exchanging stocks. You have to know about the importance of supply and demand;  you should look into what people need, and how you can buy or sell those items, so that you can make a profit out of it. Do not assume that it will be easy, as you will need time and effort to come up with a trading strategy that will work best for you.

Make use of coupons to save money

You should never buy anything for full price, unless necessary of course, because there are plenty of coupons and deals that you can find.  Give Amazon promotional codes a go, as you might find a great discount and manage your account even better. You can not only get  amazing deals and discounts, but you can make sure that you can find something you always wanted for a lower price. On the other hand, it will allow you to find items which you can sell for more later on, creating a smaller profit.


Look into affiliate marketing

If you want to be sure that you really turn your trade into a profitable project, you will have to research what affiliate marketing is, and how its campaigns can help you earn money. When running  a business where you have to sell and buy quite often, the affiliate programs will help in maintaining and tracking what you are trading with. Make sure that you fully understand how these kind of campaigns work, where to find them, and how to make them part of your strategy in becoming very successful.

Staying active and vigilant

Even if things start getting bad,  if you notice that business is not like it is supposed to be, make sure that you do not give up. Furthermore, it will be a great incentive to change your strategy and find a new approach that might be better for your whole setup. You should  remain active, and be dynamic in keeping your business project alive. Though, you should find time to improve and upgrade your strategy, and your business overall. In the meantime, keep an eye out on what current trends are, so that you can find out what could sell better.

At the end of the day, if you play your cards right, it will be possible to turn trading online into a profitable business. Just make sure that you develop a trading strategy which will be useful, otherwise you will be spending more than you can make, effectively losing money in the long run. Bear in mind that trading is an art, and that it will take some time and effort to understand the underlying mechanics; which will help in making you better, and more successful in the end.
