I Signed Up for SocialSpark!


This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

So I signed up for SocialSpark today, which is a site that offers cash for product reviews, links, and other sponsored opportunities. I am kind of interested to see how this works out. It was easy to sign up, took almost no time at all, and the directions were simple and straightforward. One thing that I hated doing was putting my SSN on their website – they use PayPal for payment and I guess they report the income to the IRS (rats!). Otherwise, it was painless.

This is the first post that I will get paid for (I think it’s $5.00) and the future ones will probably look pretty similar, with disclaimers and other legal stuff. I took some time and a looked at some of the opportunities that I will have a chance at in the future and saw some already that look interesting: Boudreaux’s Butt Paste, Las Vegas, and a few others.

The opportunities navigation is something that should be changed a bit. If you click on a type of opportunity, you cannot go back to the original screen except by returning to the Marketplace drop-down menu in the Navigation bar. Seems like it could be simpler.

Looking forward to this!

  1. Looks like you just posted this. Keep the updates coming of how it works out.


  2. So today I caneclled my account on SocialSpark. It seems like a neat idea, I just didn't find it to my liking. It was very difficult to get apporved for a sponsored post, which could be a good sign of quality control, except that it was just the nevigation and rules, and outdated offers, etc. made it undesireable. Oh well, live and learn.
