According to our recent survey, it looks like you are interested in learning how to make money blogging. Blogging can be such a financial blessing and over the next few weeks, I am going to share ways to make each money-earning avenue work for you. Today we are going to start with Linqiq.
I have recently starting working with Linqia and I really liked it! So, if your are ready to learn how to make money with Linqia … you have come to the right place!
Linqia is a company that pays per click. I am going to explain how it works:
Linqia will tell you how many clicks they want you to reach. For our example today, lets put that number at 400 clicks. This means that you need to have your special link, that they give you, clicked 400 times. So, you will write a blog post and include the link. You will share that link on social media. They will be keeping track of how many clicks it gets, from your special link.
If you can get clicks, you will earn a certain amount of money. To make our example easy, lets say that they have set your 400 click limit at $400, so $1 per click.
So, if you only get 200 clicks, you only make $200.
If you get 400 clicks, you make $400.
If you get 900 clicks, you still only make $400…. but you will qualify for more the next time!
Step 1- You need to apply here at Linqia
Step 2- Be patient. It was a five months before I was accepted to my first campaign. I consider that a lot, but maybe its not. My second campaign came while I was right in the middle of my first campaign.
Step 3- Once you get a campaign, you want your personal goal to be NOT ONLY the number of clicks, but MORE. You want your next job with them to be higher than this one, so keep going after you have reached your clicks. (as I explained above).
With my first campaign, I ended up getting almost five times the number of clicks, but then again, it was a kid-related company and I post about children on my blog a lot.
With my second campaign, I had three times the number of clicks.
You may get way more… this was just my personal experience. So, how do you get your clicks? Read step 4…
Step 4- PROMOTE! I did not just leave the link in my post, I took it everywhere. I shared it on twitter with enticing words “I love to save money with ____” or whatever fits the company. 🙂
Step 5- Share it on Twitter & ask your blogging friends to share with you. Ask them to retweet it for you.
Step 6- Make MULTIPLE pin worthy images to post on your blog post or to take them to the page. You could even upload a picture from the webpage that you are taking them to, but use your special bitly link (provided for you by Linqia) as the link source, instead of a very general one.
Share all of the images (I like to share them multiple times a day to get everyone- morning, lunchtime & evening). Ask that same group of blogging friends to share for you, too. (and ask them how you can help them!)
Step 7- Don’t give up. When you see it not being clicked as much, make a new image & go for it a little more.
It PAYS off (literally!)
