Direct paid to post offers: Which ones are legit?
I get invitations to write about this and that by email. These are direct offers from individuals representing companies and other advertisers. I know right away who’s legit and who’s spamming my inbox. Like there are emails coming from a company offering an opportunity for you to earn a thousand bucks ($1,000) a day! Come on! If it’s a month, I might believe it. But a day?!? Then there are those selling techniques for you to earn as much. Or those home-based opportunities where you need to sign up and eventually after filling out 3 forms, you are actually going to pay a fee before you can join. Hmm…
I tried some that I thought were legitimate offers and they turned out to be legitimate offers! I got paid and that’s it. Some return to ask for another blog. I remember there was once this blog advertising program, Blog for Bucks that victimized a lot of bloggers for a measly $15! A person representing them would contact you for offers and after you posted it, they would stop replying to your demands of payment. I did write for them twice and they paid me both times. After that, probably due to misuse of funds, they stopped paying other bloggers.
Let me tell you that some are legitimate offers. It’s for you to discern which ones are legit and which ones are not.
Do you get this kind of offers? Have you tried it and the most important question, did you really earn from it?
