“So, do you actually make money blogging?” – I’ve been asked this question more times than I can count. Over the last few years, blogging has finally become a source of income for my family. I’m often asked by others how to earn money as a blogger, but there are so many different ways to monetize your blog. One of the easiest ways to earn money blogging is through influencer networks.
How do you earn money with Influencer Networks?
What is an Influencer Network? An influencer network is a place where companies can search for influencers to promote their brand through campaigns and sponsored posts. There are countless influencer networks where bloggers and social media influencers may apply for membership. Each network has different requirements for membership – such as followers and engagement.

20 Influencer Networks for Bloggers
Below are 20 Influencer Networks in no particular order and I recommend you sign up for every single one of them. Before you start applying, write out a short bio and choose a photo for your profiles. Compile a list of your stats – such as Instagram followers or Google Analytics for your blog – and be prepared to answer questions. I hope you find this list helpful!
7. Clever – One of my favorites!
14. Blog Meets Brand
16. The Sway
17. Activate (by Bloglovin)
19. Social Native
20. AspireIQ – Another favorite!
2019 UPDATE: I wanted to note that some of the requirements for these influencer networks have changed in the last year. From followers to page views, each network has a different set of standards. If you’re turned down once, apply AGAIN and again. Don’t give up! I was on a waitlist for Octoly for two years before being accepted. 🙂

I hadn’t heard of a lot of these. I feel like I apply to some affiliate networks when they randomly send me an email and then may or may not ever hear from them again! Thanks for the list!
