This post brought to you by IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
I've been blogging for several years now and one of the easiest and most reliable ways I've found to make money with my blog is through IZEA, the makers of SocialSpark.com and SponsoredTweets.com. IZEA believes that bloggers who create great content should be rewarded monetarily and have partnered with thousands of sponsors that make this happen on a daily basis.
Recently, they've launched a brand new platform that allows you to receive compensation for truly spectacular pictures and videos. It's called Staree and can serve as a new photo and video application which pays you money based on the traffic your particular upload receives. With Staree, you can post photos and videos via Staree.com or through mobile apps on both the iPhone and Android.
Staree is available to everyone, but you must apply to be part of this program. The application process is extremely simple and merely involves linking up either your Twitter or Facebook accounts (or both). Klout scores could also come into play here, so if you aren't already signed up with Klout, you may want to consider doing so. I applied to Staree, but as of the writing of this post, have not received word as to whether I've been accepted or not.
Staree isn't just for normal folks either. Even Hollywood celebrities are getting into the act and joining up. For instance, Kendall Schmidt and Logan Henderson have signed on as official spokesmen for the brand and are using Staree to heighten their social media presence. They're not the only ones either. Several hundred celebs signed up during Staree's beta program and will be active on this new platform.
If you'd like to learn more and sign up yourself, make sure to head over to Staree.com and complete the application. Since I'm not an official member yet, I'm still a little sketchy on the details, but one thing's for sure: if IZEA's behind it, I'm sure it's going to be stellar!
I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
