I signed up for SocialSpark a bit ago, and held my judgment on it. I wanted to learn the ins and outs before I did anything. As I’ve proved in a post or two that I’m quick to judgment.
The Code of Ethics for using Social Spark are easy to follow, and perfect for those that want to keep the integrity of their blog, but still monetize it in a good way.
-100% Audit-able In-Post Disclosure
-100% Real Opinions
-100% Search Engine Friendly
Simple, concise, and easy to follow, and *woo hoo* great for those wanting to keep that precious PR that Google laid the smack-down on, but seems to have given back.
There are two different account types that you can have at Social Spark. One is for the blogger. Obviously, I’ve got a blogger account, since I’m using it to post. The advertiser one is for those that want to set up opportunities for others to post about a site, or a product, or anything really, I think. I haven’t really researched that section yet.
It’s easy to make money with SocialSpark. In the Marketplace, there’s plenty of choices for what to blog about. You can do a sponsored post, which is a one-time payment. You can do a sponsorship, and get paid each day. Or, if you don’t really want money for it, you can do a spark and exchange blog posts with another member. Pretty nifty, right?
There’s more to SocialSpark than just typical paid posting availabilities. It’s also a place to connect with bloggers and advertisers alike. You can leave comments on a person’s profile page.
It’s like a combination of MySpace, MyBlogLog and Facebook. You can find recent posts, some people who spam add (add with expectations, which I don’t like, but that’s a rant for another day), and even recent blog posts.
It’s a little community, and I can honestly say that I like it. So, if you’re looking for a new community, a way to make money, or a little of both, check out SocialSpark!!
