Two Paid Blogging Sites Offer Affiliate Programs With Residual Income

Getting paid to blog is a great way to make money online. It's convenient for a mom like me and the money isn't bad either! The only problem is that I can't always devote the time I want to blogging. Running a home with 7 kids (6 at home) and 7 pets combined with house work, errands and other household duties is time consuming. This is why I'm always looking for ways to create passive income. Here's a great way for any blogger to earn some extra money, just by referring others to paid blogging sites. Other paid blogging sites offer affilitae programs too. What makes these different? These two sites offer residual income, not one time payments. That makes a huge difference!

Smorty is a site that pays bloggers to write reviews about products and services. I've blogged for them and received prompt payment. Today I found that Smorty has introduced an affiliate program.

How does Smorty's affiliate program work?
Smorty has provided text links and banners that you can place on your site. When a blogger joins through your referral link, you earn 5% of whatever they earn (as long as their posts are accepted). That amount of money can grow very quickly, by just referring many bloggers. The site states payments will be made with your regular payments on Fridays. They process payments through paypal.

Blog Advertising - Get Paid to Blog is another site that has paid me for reviews. They are different from the other sites in one huge way. You place a bid to the advertiser and they accept or reject your bid. They now have an affiliate program that pays you for every advertiser and blogger that joins through your referral link.

Here's how SponsoredReviews' affiliate payouts work:
Amount Spent Payment
$1 $5
$100 $20
$1000 $50
$10,000 $100

Amount Earned Payment
$50 $5
$200 $10
$1000 $25
$10,000 $50

Referral payouts are made once a month with any regular payments by paypal. Cookies are set for 180 days. This may be the only paid blogging site that even provides cookies!

There you have it, two new ways to make money by helping others make money. If you haven't joined these sites, do so now. With the recent loss of page rank, PPP's opps seem to always be taken. Be sure to check with all the sites to continue to generate your normal income. Don't know about all the sites? You'll find the info on this blog or you can visit Make Money Online.
