If you haven't already then check out the prequel to this post on Why Bloggers Should Discuss Their Income! In that article, I discuss why talking about our income and how much we charge for sponsored posts shouldn't be a taboo subject.However, it is often a very common topic that comes up and so I felt that I should address how I decide how much to charge brands for sponsored posts and different factors that I consider. Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
How much income can I make from blogging? What should I charge for an Instagram feature? At what point will I start to make money with my blog?These are all questions I see practically every day in a variety of blogger Facebook groups, as well as in various groups on Instagram. Recently, there was a discussion in one of my favourite travel blogger groups about whether it's okay to ask someone how much they were paid for a campaign, such as a blog post on a sponsored Instagram post. The responses were somewhat mixed, with some people saying it was incredibly rude and others mentioning that for 'newbie' bloggers, it was actually really tough to know what to charge for sponsored posts.[caption id="attachment_4261" align="aligncenter" width="489"] Some bloggers create and publish income reports, but many don't discuss how much they get paid at all. Why is the topic so taboo?[/caption]
