IZEA: Social Influence At-Scale

What is SMS?
SMS is when bloggers, tweeters and other social media influencers are compensated to create and distribute advertising content through their social network.
IZEA has a number of platforms that allow social media publishers to monetize their content.
SponsoredTweets - (Sponsored Twitter Updates) Connect directly with advertisers who compensate tweeters with cash in exchange for a tweet. There are PayPerClick and PayPerPost opportunities.
SocialSpark - (Sponsored Blog Posts) A premium marketplace where advertisers compensate you for blog posts about their products or services on your own blog. Advertisers offer "opportunities" and bloggers of the option of accepting, declining or negotiating with them. Now, SocialSpark connects with Pintrest, Facebook and Twitter, giving bloggers opportunities to earn even more for their influence.
Staree - (Sponsored Photos & Videos) Join Staree and earn income from display advertising targeted to your content and product placement in photos and videos. (It's like Instagram, except you get paid. And, you can download photo props like bacon (yes, bacon!), hats and mustaches to make your photos even more fun and sharable!)
IZEA Media- (Display Advertising) An exclusive network that complements sponsored posts to create increased earning potential for bloggers. It's hand-selected based on a blogger's content and reach.
