Sometimes I see bloggers who collaborate but don’t keep up with the rules. Because of this, the companies just keep trying it at other bloggers who want to keep up with the rules. When you blog for a while and want to collaborate with other bloggers or companies, then you really need to check out this article. You really need to know this when you are collaborating with companies.
Collaborating with companies
Write a nice email
This is understandable of course, but not all bloggers do this. You can’t just send an email like “Hi, I have a blog, sponsor me.” I know a lot of bloggers don’t do this, but I will still mention it.
No do follow links
I can’t mention this enough. I get a lot of email from companies who want to collaborate with me, but also want do follow links in the article. This is just against the rules, but companies just keep trying this. If every blogger says no to do follow links, maybe companies stop emailing bloggers who don’t want to place do follow links.
A mention under the article
When I write an article where I’ve collaborated with a company, then there always needs to be a mention under the article. The rules of google say this and we all want to be honest to our readers right? I use the image below for sponsored articles.
Always be honest
I know there are a couple of bloggers who are positive about a product or a company because they collaborate with the company. Just be honest to your readers. Do you think the product is horrible or didn’t it give the result you were expecting? Then tell it your readers! Is the product totally amazing? Then tell your readers as well!
Always ask the right price
To be honest, I struggle with this a lot. It is pretty hard to ask the right price for an article. I ask 50-70 euros, but according to a lot of bloggers, this is way too low. I recommend using the calculation of Lisanneleeft, a Dutch blogger. This calculation is:
Unique visitors each month
