I tried to ask this in some of the threads but haven't got any answers. So, I thought about creating this thraed. 

Can anyone tell me what should one charge for writing a sponsored post ? or what is the amount companies would be ready to pay for the sponsored post ?

Gaurab its upto youCool I started with 40 usd for an article and graduated to 100 to 150 an articleSmile. The highest I got was $500 for a hosting review.  It depends on what your website will command in the eyes of the person offering sponsored post.  You put an offer, they put counter offer, you judge the middle amount and put is across, they acceptCool

Thanks a lot Vijay. Few companies contacted me for sponsored post but asked me to quote a price, which I was actually not prepared for. I was worried that I don't end up spooking them or asking them a very low price. Then 40 usd it should be. Smile  Money mouth

If this your first sponsored post quote 60 and come down to 40 when they get back.  They always get back if you have a good siteSmile

O God, 500 US Dollars for one sponsored post. I would had rushed to an electronics store to get a tablet to use the money at one go, had I got such an offer. Vijay, you nailed that hosting company! By the way, was 500 a middle offer? My ears would blast off if it was a middle offer.

Vijay Prabhu

This is too good. I hope every blogger is able to command this kind price some day. :)

Siddharth Muzumdar

@VP -  Does the fee depend on the industry and/or category of blogging as well? I mean how likely is it that a person who blogs about technology and a person who blogs about food might receive similar such offers for a sponsored post?

(Wrote this after I recovered from the astonishment of USD 500)

Vijay Prabhu

Siddhart the hosting companies pay good even affiliates receive more than 100 usd per referralWink.  Tech blogs rule the roost.  I dont have a food blog so cant dwell on that aspect Tongue out

Takes time NSV. And the sad part is we need to wait for sponsors to come, approaching them turns out to be mostly dead rubber. Keep blogging and you'll start getting sponsored reviews too.

Do we have to wait for the sponsors to contact us or can we approach them if there is something we really are interested in? I read somewhere it is okay to go to them directly instead of waiting in the hopes of they choosing us. Anyone been there, done that?
Vijay Prabhu

Dunno how to approach sponsors because all big cos have some sort of middlemen to look after the sponsorships who approach you.  Anyways if you have contacts give it a try Smile

Once you have a tolerable alexa and decent GPR (2-3), advertisers approach you, especially to reviewers, techies, foodies, fashion-bloggers and travelers. Just sit tight and negotiate. I've experienced both the things, i.e. being offered an assignment and offering my service and what I've seen is when you offer your service they hardly respond making you feel cheap about the whole thing. So, toil on your contents and marketing... pretend that you don't care whether they propose you or not........ [Wink]

Never be shy to quote your price for the sponsored post. You have earned the privilage by working hard on your Blog and the sponsorers understand this.

Be confident of your quote and present it to them in a professional manner.

I think you should take your blog readership,subscribers and followers seriously when quoting a price instead of your Pagerank or Alexa Rank because you are putting your post in front of readers and not selling a link from your blog.

Another reason to quote high (reasonable) for a sponsored post is because you are attaching your brand with the company and the post stays on your blog forever,for a long time.

Enjoy :)

Well it all depends upon your site stats. If you have a good alexa rank (under 30k) you can easily charge upto 200$ per review but if your rank is low it can vary from 10-50$ I usually take reviews for 50-200$ and my recent review went for 100$.

One of a leading magazines wants to purchase an article of mine, along with photographs. How much can I quote them and do I need to delete my blog post, if I give them the rights to print? 

Ranjith

do I need to delete my blog post, if I give them the rights to print?

That depends on the terms of the offer. Confirm it from the magazine people.

Meghana

Thanks Ranjith, which is better, give permanent rights to the magazine and get paid, or ask them to give a mention of my blog on the article and me still holding the rights to the article?

I think there are plenty of options and more people giving sponsored posts, but they don't always pay. THAT SUCKS. We need a way to report the email addresses/links that don't pay, don't you think?

Arvind Passey

This is serious if this is happening.

Yes, bloggers are a trusting lot and if there are people unscrupulous enough to cheat them, they (the cheats) have no business to thrive. I think anyone who has had a bad experience with sponsored post can let the other bloggers know of it.

Hi, Somebody too recommend me to a sponsors please..I am getting all free requests only :(

Gaurab
from New Delhi

I think most of the companies try to get their posts published free of cost. I feel this is because they know there are many bloggers and some of them would definitely entertain them. Further, most bloggers don't know how to respond to a sponsors request. I myself learned it by asking and with experience. If most of the "good" blogs will stop giving "free meals" to them then they will automatically start paying.

Gaurab if you can help me with that, I will be thankful :)
