I've talked about AdvoWire in my post about easy ways to monetize your blog for free.
Today, I'm going to provide a review of the site and its services.
AdvoWire, a subsidiary of HireInfluence, enables bloggers and influencers to create an account and view and apply for affiliate opportunities. Like many such services, it also offers the opportunity to earn money off referrals.
To use AdvoWire, you'll need to create an account and link your social media channels. Click here to create an account (note: this link includes my referral code).
Once you've linked your social accounts to AdvoWire, you'll have access to a cool screen like you see below, which shows you how you rank compared to other AdvoWire users in your industry. (You tell AdvoWire what your industry is.) This is a handy way to see where you shine and where you might need some work. (Clearly I need to spend some more time on Facebook!)
You will also have access to a panel with opportunities for influencers. Categories vary, but companies often seek food bloggers, fashion bloggers, and travel bloggers. Companies currently advertising a need for affiliates include Cheesecake Factory, TGI Fridays, Payless Shoes, Menchies, Sonic, and Dunkin' Donuts.
Opportunities tend to be very specific when it comes to requirements, but you are free to apply to whichever you want.
The thing I've found most success with through AdvoWire is actually its referral program. For every new user who signs up via my referral link and connects at least three social media accounts with a total reach (across all platforms) of 10,000 followers, I earn $10.
Until recently, the program required only that someone sign up and connect three accounts, and it paid out $5 rather than its current higher payout of $10. It was certainly easier to get qualified influencers before, but I'm still finding it to be worth my time (the time I have to invest isn't a whole lot).
Overall, I would recommend AdvoWire to bloggers who have social media channels. It's free and provides you the opportunity to apply for legitimate opportunities to work with real, national brands as an influencer. The way I see it is that you never know when one simple partnership will turn into something much bigger.
If you're interested in signing up for AdvoWire and would like to use my affiliate link, I would greatly appreciate it. As I mentioned above, if you meet the program's qualifications, I will earn $10. You will then also be eligible to recruit others and earn $10 off each person who is qualified. I'll be honest; I've earned a fair amount of money this way.
Have you ever given AdvoWire a try? What are your thoughts?
