As a blogger, I always try to provide a valid way to monetize the blog. When I started there wasn’t much to do. But now there are many options to monetize. I have recently across a monetization tool.
As I always ask some question before my post to give you clarity of what I am going to cover. Feel free to mention if I am missing anything.
Are you looking for a place to monetize your blog?
Do you want to make money using your twitter account?
Do you have a video channel you wanted to monetize without Adsense?
Do you want an easy and hassle free platform to connect to the top brands?
Here is the answer Blogmint
How Blogmint works?
It’s a great platform for the brand and influencer both. Here is the detailed Blogmint Review an Influencer marketing platform
Influencers: are the one who has a social media presence, blogs, and video channels.
Brands: are the one who wants to promote their content.
In this article, I will provide detailed information on how to get started
The first thing which I like about Blogmint is the easy user interface. You can signup as either Brand or Influencer. We will talk about how this platform is helpful for Influencer. If you are thinking how can a 140 char pay you? The answer is right here. Let me break the curiosity and start with the Signup process.
Step 1: Visit Blogmint and click on ‘Signup as Influencer’
Step 2: Alternatively you can signup with BlogSpot, WordPress.com, Self-hosted WordPress account to signup. Last but the least you can always use your Email Id.
How to get started and proceed with the form filling?
Step 2: You will also connect your blogs. In order to prove ownership, you will get a code snippet to publish on your blogs. After verification, you are good to go.
Step 3: One important thing which is going to be the life changer in the next couple of years is ‘Video’. You can also add videos and make a massive amount of money. So Vlogs are also very popular on blogmint.
Step 4: You need to very careful while filling the charges to monetize your social accounts and blogs. If the price is too high you are saying NO to the brands. So initially you can just keep the price on the lower end. But this doesn’t mean that you should not get what you deserve. So set the price accordingly.
Step 5: Now you need to fill some additional information like your Name, Gender, DOB, Place, qualification and monthly income (I am not sure about this but hope they are collecting this information for the right reasons) and a short Bio.
How the Blogmint dashboard look after login?
After login, your dashboard will look very similar to the below image. Your image will come up with your influence score based on the influence of your social profiles or blog profiles.
You can see your site analytics and social analytics. If you will click on any particular social icon you will find the details as ‘no. of followers’, ‘total reach’ etc.
How to get paid on Blogmint?
You need to setup your bank details with Blogmint. They will ask for Bank A/C number and IFSC code. The bank address is not mandatory. Please keep the PAN card number handy.
In order to verify these details, you will submit a scanned copy of Pancard and bank statement. You will find a list of a document they consider. Verification of documents will not stall your current payment. You can still start and earn money.
Payment and commission: Blogmint will release the accumulated amount in 30 days after payment received. Also with every project, there is a 20% commission attached.
So if you will do a project for 100 INR you will receive 80 INR.
How to start your first campaign on Blogmint?
The major problem with a similar marketplace is you need to have a strong profile and wait for weeks to get the first campaign. But I will share my personal experience with Blogmint. How easy and fast I have got my first campaign.
If you have come so far, you may be interested in:
Below is the image of campaign dashboard
Once you will hit ‘Discover campaign’ you will find a list of the campaign. Check the brand name and cost. If it suits you press ‘Apply’ and site back for brand’s response.
The brand will check all the profiles and choose the best influencer as per their requirement. So no bid or long sales letters. Nice idea.
You will get a notification once the job is awarded.
If a brand awarded a project to post Tweets with certain #hashtag
You will write the tweets in the given time frame and copy the tweet URL and submit it on Blogmint in the provided space. As soon as you will submit the tweets you will receive the amount in your Blogmint account.
One annoying thing about Blogmint:
Without fail, they will show a popup to refer Blogmint to your friend. Even though you are checking campaign this popup will show up. But for many good things we can tolerate this. Maybe Blogmint will find the article and fix this issue.
Feel free to share your comments and feedback. I would love to make this very helpful for the blogger and microbloggers.
UPDATE: 19th Mar’19
After receiving multiple queries regarding the blogmint shutdown, I am updating this post.
I have gone through the blogmint.com and website was not found. See the screenshot below:
I have also checked social accounts. Here is an example of a Facebook account. I couldn’t find anything after 2nd Aug’17
So it seems like the blogmint’s operations have been shutdown.
Finally, I came across one of the reviews on Facebook asking if the blogmint operations are shutdown and none of the blogmint officials responded to it.
But no to be disappointed. Here are more ways to make money online.
Please share your comment and feedback regarding the same and help the fellow bloggers.
