40 Sites That Pay You To Blog-Sponsored Networks
A sponsored network is a company that matches bloggers with brands that want to sponsor.
Brands want to sponsor because sponsorships are a form of paid advertising.
They want to gain exposure for their brand through the blog’s audience.
It’s a win-win.
The blogger gets paid and the brand gets exposure and possibly earns sales, increases the size of their email list (leads), etc.
Check out these networks that you can join for free and start getting paid to blog via sponsorships!

40 Sites That Pay You To Blog-Ad Networks
An advertising network works with publishers (like you, the blogger) and advertisers.
Advertisers seek to show their ads on publisher websites and publisher websites want to monetize their website with ads shown through networks.
Again, a win-win.
To join an ad network, it’s super easy.
Here’s the process for joining Google Adsense:
First, visit Google Adsense and join for free.
Then, go through their verification process.
Get accepted, get access to your ad code and place your site.
Earn money every time a visitor clicks the ads on your site.
Ad income is passive income.
You don’t have to do anything additional to earn advertising income. You can make money in your sleep. You can make money 24/7 on autopilot and your visitors doesn’t even have to take action, other than clicking the ad.
The only caveat?
Ad income is incredibly low paying.
In order for you to make a full-time income, you will need a LOT of traffic. Not to be discouraging because you may have a lot of traffic or if you don’t, I’m sure you are on your way there. Between now and then, you can still enjoy earning money passively with ads.
Here are some networks you can consider.
