Today I learned about a new website called “Business 2 Blogger” at www.business2blogger.com. The slogans on the site say things such as “where businesses and bloggers play nicely” and “we connect businesses and bloggers.”
Reading more closely, bloggers can benefit from the site because Business2Blogger promises to “level the playing field by giving you firsthand notification of PAID posting opportunities in your inbox alongside the Blogging giants.” While businesses can “harness the power of blogger influence ” and gain instant access to targeted bloggers who can grow their brand. Oh and did I mention “IT IS FREE!”?
Here is an example taken from the Business2Blogger website that explains how it works. Pretty cool, eh?
Ann is a Blogger AND a Businesswoman, with a great blog and an etsy store that showcases her beautiful jewelry. She submits a Business Campaign Request asking for 20 Bloggers to each write about her beautiful new earrings, and run a contest giveaway. She gives them each a pair of the earrings to do a giveaway, and asks them to write a post on their Blog. To compensate each Blogger, she lets each choose something for themselves from her jewelry collection. They write their Blog posts, screaming about how beautiful their new earrings are to all their readers, and they each run a giveaway to send their readers into a jewelry-loving frenzy…see how this works?
I am cautiously optimistic that this could be a baby step in the direction of actually making some money on this here blog. That is assuming there are products I actually feel are worth supporting. If there is free stuff involved for you all, especially if they are cool products, I think it is totally worth it!
Anyway, it’s a cool business idea! I always like things that bring power to the people so I hope it is wildly successful!
