Orlando, FL (PRWEB) March 14, 2007
PayPerPost, the leading marketplace for advertisers to reach bloggers, videographers, photographers, podcasters and social networks, today announced that it is ramping up its efforts to attract more college students into its growing community of consumer content creators. PayPerPost will be marketing its site to students via a variety of online guerilla marketing tactics, including utilization of its existing network.
"PayPerPost is eager to tap into the computer skills, energy and talent that U.S. college students offer," said Ted Murphy, CEO, PayPerPost. "We believe students can take our business to a new level of creativity and excitement. In return, we can help students earn a fair amount of income in their spare time."
PayPerPost pays people to blog about products and services ranging from consumer electronics to travel destinations. Over 15,000 bloggers and nearly 5,000 advertisers have signed on to the service since its launch last year, creating a wealth of opportunities for content generators to make money. Participation in the PayPerPost network requires mandatory public disclosure on the blogger's Web site, providing transparency for the bloggers, readers and advertisers.
Among the many students already signed up as "Posties," as the company's member bloggers are known, is Amanda Carter, an Informatics major at the University of Buffalo, who is earning $450 per month on average; Steven Melo, a marketing major at Providence College, who earned $267 in just two months; and Justin Hancock, a computer science/business management major at Whitworth College in Spokane, WA, who has earned nearly $4,500 so far writing about everything from family-friendly hotels to reverse cell phone directories.
"Posties are able to pay for routine needs, retire debt, contribute toward their tuition and earn spending cash, all through their daily blogs," said Murphy. "Advertisers know it's notoriously difficult to connect meaningfully with college students, which is why they're so interested in the blogging community. And it only takes a few minutes, a few times a week, for bloggers to participate."
The PayPerPost system requires that each paid post remain live for 30 days prior to payment. On average, Posties earn about $50 per week, and can make upwards of $1,000 per individual blog posting.
In addition to simple blog postings, PayPerPost advertisers have been experimenting with video and audio opportunities as well. To learn more, visit http://www.payperpost.com.
