Currently, we receive an average of 15+ emails each day regarding content writing opportunities here on Budget101.com. The majority of these requests stem from folks at SEO companies, (pretending to be freelance writers) seeking to build link profiles for their clients. They do this under the guise of looking to submit a Guest Post, rather than a sponsored post.
Guest Post or Sponsored Post?
Sometimes freelance writers aren’t clear as to whether their post qualifies as a guest post or a sponsored post. If you are receiving compensation (or product, etc) for sharing the post, then it must legally be disclosed and is considered a Sponsored post, therefore our advertising rates (listed below) will apply.
If you are not receiving compensation for sharing your post (and the links within it) and you are a blogger or freelance writer seeking to expand your reach for your own blog, your post likely qualifies as a Guest Post. Our complete Guest Post guidelines are available here.
Sponsored Post Policies and Pricing
We do accept quality submissions from genuine bloggers and real freelance writers seeking to increase their reach. We also, on a very limited basis, accept quality sponsored posts from brands or SEO companies seeking to expand their reach. In all cases, in order to provide the best content for our valued audience, we have strict guidelines that are strongly enforced.
In fact, I would go as far as to say as my required guidelines are not negotiable.
Our Family site Budget101.com is tailored specifically to help families save money in all areas of life and enjoy fantastic recipes (at affordable prices). We cover a vast range of topics, affordable recipes, travel, DIY, gardening, lifestyle, parenting, you name it!
