More Information About Social Spark

As I stated in a previous post, I signed up at a website called SocialSpark. Now I want to tell you a little more about it. SocialSpark is a great website that can you can use to monetize your blog, you can build a community and drive traffic to your blog.

Unlike other sponsored post websites SocialSpark is different because it's not all about the posts.
You can also view other blogs, make friends, send messages to other bloggers, and give them and their blogs what SocialSpark calls "props." If you like someones profile or blog you can give them either a prop or a drop. It's a great way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

You can also take opps. Below is what the opps board would look like. (click it to enlarge) You go to the opp. board and you can see what is available. If an opp is open to you and you qualify, you can take it. One thing that is also cool about SocialSpark is that if an opp is not available to you at a particular time, you can get on a waiting list. You can basically reserve an opp by clicking "wait for slot." Then SocialSpark will email you when it is available. Then you can take it.

SocialSpark also has a code of ethics. All posts are 100% In-Post Disclosure. SocialSpark has a
strict policy of full in-post disclosure for all sponsored posts. There is 100% Transparency, which means every blogger in SocialSpark is made viewable to the public. The public can also see which bloggers are working with which advertisers on which opportunities. SocialSparkSocialSpark automatically carries the "no-follow" attribute so as not to affect search engine rankings. This is designed to protect bloggers and advertisers from search engine penalties based on paid linking. This is another great aspect of SocialSpark, that makes them stand out from other sponsored sites.

If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you sign up at SocialSpark!

  5. Since this is an Izea website, are there concerns about SocialSpark like there are about Pay Per Post - that by publishing opps from them on your blog will destroy your PR?
