A review of the blog monetization and social network SocialSpark has been added to the site.
Here is a small excerpt of the review:
“The challenge faced by most publishers when it comes to traditional advertising networks that pay based on conversions, clicks, or impressions is that the publisher still has to be concerned with how well the paid advertisement performs. The advantage offered by paid post services removes this barrier. So long as the publisher meets the requirements of the advertiser, they are guaranteed payment.
IZEA is not new to paid posts, having already run the sometimes popular PayPerPost network since 2006. In many ways, SocialSpark is an extension of PayPerPost, operating on much the same model. Publishers still take opportunities and get paid to write paid reviews on their blogs, but SocialSpark adds a social networking element into the mix as well.
SocialSpark specializes in blog marketing and blog advertising. Publishers browse through an extensive marketplace filled with advertising opportunities, selecting the ones that pique their interest. By the same accord, advertisers can browse through the blogs that have registered with SocialSpark to see if there are any blogs that are of specific interest to them.”
