As most of you know, I share sponsored content on my blog (and when I do I make sure you know it is – right under the title of the post). I use sponsored content to connect my readers with brands that I think are awesome (and yes, I’ve turned down plenty of offers that aren’t right for my blog) and that I think you might like to know about. As a reader, I also love hearing about new brands from my blogging friends! If you’re not a blogger, you can check out Markerly’s $250 American Express Gift Card Giveaway! They’ll be picking the winner at the end of February but be sure to enter by February 15! If you are a blogger, today I’m talking about Markerly right below this giveaway!
Markerly is an influencer marketing platform – you sign up with Markerly and go there to connect with awesome brands. My last Markerly post was my eMeals review. I had already signed up and got the notification of the opportunity in my inbox. I thought wow, this is perfect for me, I’d love to talk to my readers about cooking dinner (like I often do). I just clicked a button to apply and was approved shortly thereafter. Unlike other blogging platforms you do not have to fill out your followers and statistics every time you apply for a campaign. I hate doing that!
Markerly’s network is open to anybody to join that has over 10,000 page views a month or an average of 3 comments per post. The network is super focused on bloggers with engaged audiences – and they want you to engage with brands in your own style and with your own opinions. Markerly works with top brands including Levi’s, Super Bowl, TruMoo, Jaybird, and eMeals. One thing I didn’t realize until I got paid with my eMeals post – you get paid within 48 hours of your post going live! They have a little chat box right on their website and you can chat with someone and get emailed back ASAP if you have any questions or problems (I chatted with the CEO today!). If you’re interested on the behind the scenes with Markerly (how Markerly works with brands), check out how it all works here.
When you work with Markerly you get a full-service managed network with 24/7 blogger support and awesome heat maps of your entire post so you can see what your readers are clicking on. Nifty.
