5 Ways to Make Your PayPerPost Posts More Appealing to Your Readers

October 24, 2007

This post was guest blogged by Ruchir of TechnoMoney. Ruchir is only in 10th Grade but blogs about topics such as make money online at his blog TechnoMoney. There you’ll find various blogging tips, ways to make money, money saving tips and occasional news about technology and the internet at large.

PayPerPost can be a great way to earn some decent money, especially when your blog is only a couple of months old. However, if not used correctly it can turn into a nuisance for your readers. To make sure that your readers don’t get annoyed by these sponsored posts, I present you 5 ways of making PPP sponsored posts more appealing to your readers:

  • Make sure that the opportunity you choose is relevant to the theme of your blog. For example, don’t pick an opportunity about bicycles if you have a make money online blog.
  • Research about the website you’re reviewing and give an honest opinion of the website.
  • Don’t use too much ‘pre-sell’ language.
  • Try to make the sponsored post as ‘normal’ as possible. Don’t try to force the reader to sign-up for a website. Just imagine if you have stumbled upon the site and no one is paying for the review. Write your post just like that. It will turn out to be more natural and might appeal more to the reader.
  • Don’t sound too much like you’ve been paid for the post. I have seen many people who use PPP post sponsored posts that were highly discriminatory and said that the website in question was great. When I actually visited the website, it was absolute crap. If you do like this, your readers might loose your trust.

I know that was a pretty short list. But then I like to get to the point and I believe these 5 points covered pretty much everything. Still, if you have something more that can make PPP posts more appealing, feel free to write it in the comments; I’d love to hear what you have to say.

    I am not going aggressive on PPP any more. Instead, I prefer ReviewMe and Sponsored Reviews. Although the opportunities are lesser, I am open to write whatever I want which I feel is the appropriate for the site.

    What I’m doing on my new blog, which is way too young to qualify for PPP or other review options, is to do free and practice/example reviews. For example, I’ll do a free blog review if you ask for one. I’m also reviewing products that I’ve found interesting to help craft my style I’ll use in the future.

    @Wayne Liew – I’ve never been able to find many opportunities on PPP for this blog – in fact, the only one I’ve done here is the “Why I Love PPP” one for $10. I’ve done some reviews on other Blogspot blogs though (which I do have just for that purpose, really). I agree with you about writing reviews. I don’t use those programs but I offer direct reviews on this site for sale, and I enjoy those much more.

    @Frank C – That’s a smart move, practice makes perfect! Reviewing products can also be a good way to generate traffic if your review gets ranked well in the search engines. People who are interested in purchasing the product will most likely look up a review on it too. Keep up the great work!
