IZEA (formerly PayPerPost) announced the release of SocialSpark Affiliate
Opportutnities - a marketplace designed exclusively for bloggers.
The program offers performance based marketing programs in which bloggers
receive a CPA commission for specific actions such as form leads or online
sales. SocialSpark Advertisers provide text links and display ads (IAB display
ad units) to bloggers and assign a bounty for each action they want
accomplished. Even IZEA realizes however that the most powerful ad unit is the
sponsored post (Some things never change!) as it delivers "superior click-throughs
and conversions over traditional display ads."
SocialSpark looks like it's taking disclosure and transparency very seriously.
The service requires affiliates to post disclosure as a condition of payment
(through a machine readable Disclosure Badge seen below). Advertisers are able
to select which bloggers can participate in their opportunity by segmenting with
SocialSpark tools by age, gender, traffic, category and other criteria based on
the needs of the campaign.
Please Note: This is not a sponsred IZEA or SocialSpark post.
