This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
I work “at home”. I wanted to be able to stay at home with my kids – it’s kind of important to me.
But when is “at home” actually AT HOME? Sometimes I’m home, sure, but there’s also ballet lessons, library trips, park visits, playdates, and more. I’m on the go a lot, and when you have irregular earning opportunities, it’s important to be able to be able to snag those chances when they arise!
Let me set the stage:
2015 was a busy year for me. We started the year with a cross-country move, pregnant and exhausted (and too pregnancy-hormone-headachy to blog at all), and ended it with a brand new baby.
Yet somehow, I still managed to make $5,487.34 “on the side” with my blog, just from one site.
(I made a lot more than that total with everything all told, but this is just from one method.)
Want to know how I did it?
My favorite blogging network, IZEA, connected me to advertisers and sponsors who wanted to get their message or their name out to my readers. And they paid me for writing!
Some of them were promoting a new product or a sale or special promotion they were having. Others just wanted their name attached to a fun project or recipe. All of them put money in my pocket – for my family.
And already in 2016? I’ve earned $700 just in January and the beginning of February, with $1,276.75 pending deposit in the next 30 days!
But here’s the thing.
That was all from my computer. I’m SURE this year I’ll be able to make WAY more. Why?
My favorite network has made it even easier to earn. I love that they released an app for iOS, so I can check offers and assignments on the go, and even send out sponsored tweets and post Instagram campaign pictures from my phone, and get paid.
Yesterday, I sent out a tweet while I was playing with my kids, and earned $20!
I didn’t have to be tied to my computer to do it, and every little bit of “extra” helps us. $20 more into our savings account is a big deal, and I didn’t have to go to an office (or even my home office) to earn it.
And this morning, while I was making my kids breakfast, I got a notification on my phone (through the app) that this post needed a little edit. Once I got the kids situated, I was able to edit this and get the revised version sent off for approval.
Are you ready to download the new IZEA app and earn some money too? If you’re getting out of debt, have savings goals, or just want some “extra” money for fun, it’s time to join IZEA.
How to Earn Lots of Money On the Go
Step 2 Download the IZEA iOS app.
Step 3 Update your profile – be as detailed as you can (it’ll get you more gigs!)
Step 4 Browse and bid on campaigns right from your phone, anywhere. On a boat, on a mountaintop, from the park, on vacation. Anywhere. Wherever you are, you can connect with brands you love for sponsorship.
Step 5 Complete your assignments. Create some types of content on the go, and you keep complete control over what you say through your social channels. (It’s not some sort of weird auto-posting program. It’s ALL YOU, baby.)
Step 6 Watch the money roll in. You’re rewarded for creating content and sharing it with your friends and fans on your terms. 30 days after your content posts, the money is available for withdrawal, and you can do it right from your phone!
