Get Paid to Write for Brands using #Markerly + $250 Gift Card Giveaway

This post is brought to you on behalf of the Markerly Blogging Network. All opinions expressed are my own. Learn how you can get paid to write for brands using Markedly

Yesterday marked 4 years of running and blogging here at It has been one whirlwind of a ride! Blogging is one of those jobs that many people still don’t understand. For the most part when I have questions, I just have to search, dig, ask other bloggers and sometimes wing it. There is always more to learn, and I just figure it out as I go. When asked what I do for a living, I tell people I am a blogger. Then comes the half puzzled, half amused look on their face. “You can make money doing that?,” they say. Blogging was originally thought of as a place where people just talk about what they did that week, and post pictures of their family. That still exists, but it can be so much more! 

It didn’t take long into my blogging “career” before I figured out that one can actually make money blogging. At the time there was no guide to be found online, to calculate how much one could earn blogging. It was all pretty foreign. I had no idea how much money I could make, but I wanted to find out if it could really happen. Originally as a coupon blogger, I only knew about making a commission through affiliate marketing.

Over the years, I stopped blogging about couponing and took up blogging about food, travel, products, parenting, etc. I learned the art of connecting with brands and creating mutually beneficial relationships. That’s where some of the money comes in. 

I want to help some of you on your path to being able to do what you love, all while earning money. I love my job as a blogger and I love the freedom that comes with it. I also love getting behind a brand that I love and support, and having it count for something. The fact that doing so helps pay my bills is icing on the cake. I am here to tell you how you can get paid to write for brands using Markerly.

Markerly is a blogging network that helps pair brands with bloggers. Markerly is a full-service managed network with 24/7 blogger support. Through them, you can work with brands like Levi’s, Super Bowl, TruMoo, eMeals, etc. They aid you in your writing by providing any key messaging, but also answering any questions you might have. As far as the pay goes, I’d say the pay per post is fair, and they paid within 48 hours of your post going live! In addition to pay, sometimes you will free products to review!

If you receive over 10,000 page views a month, or have an average of 3 comments per post, then go ahead and join Markerly! Something fun that Markerly offers is a heat map of your entire post so you can see what people were clicking on. If you get obsessed with checking stats like I do, then you will love this feature! I can speak from experience that Markerly is unlike some other influencer marketing platforms in that they truly do focus on quality and authenticity.
