On Wednesday, June 13th, the D.C. Blogger Union Chapter hosted yet another amazing event with speaker, Meg Biram at LOFT in Georgetown, who talked about all tips and tricks for monetizing a blog.
After full time blogging for ten years, Meg was a wealth of knowledge sharing everything from affiliate programs, campaigns, media kits, pricing, and website linkage. One of the key takeaways from her presentation was to always under promise and overdeliver when working with different companies.
If you agree to two posts, try adding a third and see if they will sponsor it as well. And always check your contracts for exclusivity. Meg also recommended to pitch ideas for campaigns in a unique and creative way, even if one out of ten sponsors accept it. Always be one step ahead to set yourself apart.
