There are 3 many ways I make money as a blogger for my lifestyle website The Gem: partnerships from influencer marketing platforms, connecting with brands directly, and income from affiliate marketing. Working with brands on paid campaigns through the websites listed below accounts for over half of my income! It’s taken me a really long time to find platforms like this which is why I wanted to make it easier for you by listing them here.
If this is helpful for you, please be a Gem and share this post on Pinterest!
What makes me credible to write this? Even though Blog Like a Gem is a new website as

Influencer Platforms for Beginner Bloggers
Some of these I’ve worked with and some I haven’t. These are only appropriate if you are brand spanking new as the pay rate is very low. Once you get a few collabs under your belt, do yourself a favor and focus on other platforms. Your time, effort, and work is valuable to brands and deserves adequate pay!
If you’re a blogger, what platforms have you successfully worked with? Do you have experience with any of the ones I’ve listed? Have any more to add to this list? Let me know below!
