Izea started as PayPerPost, Inc. in February 2006 in the US and became a publicly listed company in 2011. The platform connects people with high online influence with marketers who wants their message to get promoted on social media. You know when you watch YouTube and some people review lipsticks, lotions, engine oils, food, etc? That’s how this works.

Companies spend a lot on social media advertising because unlike traditional online ads (where people can’t wait to press “skip ads”), social media utilizes the “word of mouth” type of marketing which has been proven to be more effective. You can earn with Izea by posting on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn, or blog sites. Izea will work well for people who have a lot of followers as they can demand higher rates.

Start by signing up in Izea as a creator and confirm your email. Log in to your account then click the top left corner icon where you can find your initials. Click “Connections” and connect all your social media accounts. You need to agree to all the permissions being asked such as “manage pages”. After connecting, tell Izea what kind of “Communities” you are serving which means mentioning the interests and demographics of your target audience. All this information will be used by marketers to determine if you are the right fit.

Once done, go to the “Content” tab on the left pane then click “New”. This is where all the jobs are posted. Click the one that interests you and submit a bid together with a short description of why marketers should pick you. Having a lot of followers will surely come in handy when doing Izea. If you tell advertisers you have 20,000 followers on your Twitter account then you can demand higher compensation per post.
