How I Made $300 from Blog Engage in a month ?

I’m sure everyone here knows about the BlogEngage community. In fact, I remember Enstine wrote a post on Blog Engage about 3-4 months ago. But the real question is can you make money from it by being a part of this awesome Blog Community. The answer is a BIG YES. Here’s how I made $300 from Blog Engage in a month. 

Blog Engage Contest

If you didn’t know, Brian regularly hosts contest on BlogEngage. The prize money usually is a few hundred dollars. If you can win one of these contests you can really make some money. Abhi Balani, the Oddblogger (winner of 3 contests) made $750 and Justin Germino, the Dragonblogger won a massive $1000 last year from the contests alone.

I always wanted to earn money like that. That’s why, when Brian announced this year’s first contest, I knew I had to participate no matter what.

How the BlogEngage contest worked ?

The contest was the called $150 Blog Engage Affiliate Lights Contest. Basically, Brian had made an announcement that he needed 10 bloggers to write an awesome review about the Blog Engage community and it’s awesome features. The good thing about this contest was that Brian was going to make sure that everyone would get at least $50. And what sales we would make from our Affiliate Lights tracking code, we were going to earn the full commission instead of the regular 25% commission. Also, the one who makes the most sales would get a $100 bonus.

For the last 4 weeks, all 10 bloggers and especially Brian, marketed our posts heavily to get as much as sale as everyone could. This contest was therefore also an opportunity to increase my blog’s exposure to another level (the main reason why I participated) and it sure did.

After a couple of weeks, the most unexpected thing happened which I couldn’t believe.

Affiliate Lights

We were going to receive full commission for any sales. The most unexpected thing that happened was that I was able to sell a 99.99 GBP account from my article. Also, you’re going to love who love bought the account. It was none other than the famous Zac Johnson.

I somehow knew that he bought it because in between the contest I started seeing all his posts on the front page. When I asked Brian and he confirmed it, I was happy beyond belief. I knew right then, that I was in for a chance to win the whole damn thing. I did make one more sale and eventually I won the whole contest and earned $250 from it. The announcement for the contest winners were made by Brian just a couple of days ago and I got my payment yesterday. :)

In case you’re wondering, I wrote a post titled how Blog Engage can be the ultimate blogging community for any blogger. It’s worth checking out.

Blog Engage Job Board

The Blog Engage Job Board is a relatively new feature where a job is posted by Brian or by some other member of Blog Engage. The price for the article is mentioned in the job details. Some of the details like the number of words and the subject to write on are mentioned explicitly.

What you have to do is apply for the job and if the job employer approves, you write that article and if he likes it you get your payment via paypal. I wrote 3-4 articles using the job board and I was able to make $50 very easily (I did write awesome content , don’t forget that ).

So, in total I was able to make $300 from Blog Engage alone.

  10. I must say, congratulations Lahaul!, for winning a contest on Blog Engage (worth $250) plus $50 on doing some article jobs, earning a total of $300 from it. Glad to know about their Blog Engage Job Board as a lot of bloggers and non-bloggers are not aware of how to earn money in these kinds of blog communities. Before, we can only gain traffic, backlinks and a small amount of money, and we hope that somebody will buy off products, services, and affiliate links from our posts/blogs.

    I’ve also read your post “Blog Engage – The Ultimate Blogging Community for Any Blogger”. The plans and pricing you’ve mentioned about Blog Engage is really reasonable and affordable! I know about Blog Engage before but I only knew that it has guest posting contests. The Affiliate Lights seems like a great affiliate program, and it even gives out free $10 just by signing up!

    Thank you very much for writing this article. It surely made me excited to take a look once more on Blog Engage.

      Thanks for commenting, Adrienne.
      It really was exciting. To be honest, I participated in the contest to get some exposure for my blog and Brian was going to make sure that we earn $50 at least. So, I thought why not. I never thought I would eventually win the thing especially when there were some great bloggers in the contest. I was lucky and I promoted the article very heavily with Brian. In the end my persistence paid off. Felt really good when I won. :)

    I was using Blogengage earlier but for some reason I skipped this. But Blogengage is a fine portal and Brian is very much supportive and quick to reply, so hope to start the service again. Heard some good words about the contest and seen a person making thousand dollars from it.
    Your earnings have inspired me again! Hope I will also participate in the contest one day! Great sharing buddy.
