Pay Per Post just announced their new program, Pay Per Post Direct. It’s a whole new way to blog that allows you (the blogger) to keep more of your earnings.
What happens is pretty simple. Bloggers install a widget on their blog, (notice mine to the right), and when an advertiser decides that they would like to have you market their site via a blog post, they can contact you directly by clicking on the widget. You and the advertiser work out the details and the price. They they escrow that money and a small fee (to insure that you get paid for your work) and that goes into your per post.com account which acts as a mediator for you and the advertiser. Pay Per Post keeps the 10% fee and the rest is yours. It is really that simple.
This is similar to some freelancing sites only the advertiser contacts you and you negotiate your fee. Unlike freelance sites, the work is claimed by you on your blog. You don’t give any one else the credit for your writing. (That alone sold me on the idea). Another bonus to this is that unlike other competitors (such as ReviewMe), you keep more of your profit because Pay Per Post.com only takes 10%. Other companies charge upwards of 50-100%, often times making it seem like you are workng for nothing.
Pay Per Post has always looked after its bloggers and it continues to do so by taking the least of a percentage as it can. The fee covers its escrowing costs and admin fees. They let you negotiate your own price for your work and they let you work out the terms with the advertiser. Like I said before, easy huh?
