Ah, reviews and giveaways! Once a rare thing in the momosphere, they are now a staple of the scene and one of the primary ways that brands and bloggers work together.
But giveaways are an incredible amount of work. So in the last couple of years, many bloggers have begun to charge an administration fee for contests hosted on their site, much like they do sponsored posts (here’s a look at what bloggers charge for sponsored posts). But if you want to start charging a fee, how do you know what to charge?
These sixteen bloggers share their perspective and fees to give you a place to get started.
says, "Most of the giveaways I've done have been tied to a sponsored campaign that was on-going so it was compensated in some way. Running a giveaway takes at least 2-3 hours time, plus the actual writing of the post. If you take a low hourly rate and a very low per-word rate that's still $100 at the minimum. I usually get around $250 for a sponsored post although I have done them for free (usually for friends)."
