Howto: Sell yourself cheap

No, I'm not going to write how to sell your marketable skills nor your product or anything else but how to humiliate yourself online for money.


If you decided to do that then you are few steps away from humiliating and selling yourself cheaply

  1. Go to PayPerPost

  2. Sign up as blogg

  3. Start blogging for money

  4. plug a post encouraging and recommending a product or service that you don't know but you want it's money


Once you do that you will find your name in history book - chapter 12 - wall of shame




Now some of you may say I'm selling myself cheap and my blog is full of advertisements, Well, all ads block are easily identified as ads spot, so there is no way for people to think that I'm recommending this product or that one but with PayPerPost you will be writing for money and you will be recommending service and products *maybe* you didn't use but they pay well so you write well also and this is the way to loose your creditability.

I would be happy to get paid for what I write in my blog without being controlled of what to write, how to write it and ohh it's 49 words when it should be 50 words to get your money

  1. Interesting post, but I have to correct a few things.

    First up, I'm not sure cheap is good description of what PayPerPost does. We have plenty of bloggers who have made upwards of a thousand dollars in one month.

    Secondly, and most importantly, opportunities posted on the site don't mandate what a blogger says. In fact, more than half the opportunities on the site are neutral, which means you can in fact say bad things about the company in question and still get paid. It's the same as a company sending a product to a magazine journo for review; the company can't control what the journo will say and there's a risk the journo will be less than flattering.

    On the disclosure side - we're working on it. It's still early days - the world seems to have exploded (well, the top 0.0001% of the blogosphere and the all the wannabes anyway) into anger over what we're doing, but bear in mind we're only 3 months old so the PayPerPost of a years time will be very different to the one we are today - in a good way.

  2. Peter,
    Thank you for your quick respond and sorry for being late in responding back.

    First, I didn't mean cheap as cheap in money but cheap as in selling creditability but nevertheless your clarification makes me so ashamed of myself at least for not noticing that bloggers will be writing a review rather than recommending service or product for money else I'd be using the above title.


    Thank you Peter.
