One of my blogging goals for 2016 is to get the “business” side of blogging more organized. I have post-its and notes to myself everywhere, reminding me of things like what giveaways I am participating in, what sponsored posts need to be written, what sponsored social shares need to be posted, and what posts/ social media campaigns I am waiting for payment from. There is so much to keep track of, which is why I am designing a series of free blog planner printables to help keep everything organized. I picked up a 1″ binder and a 3 hole punch which I am using to place all the blog planner printables together. The end goal is to have a “2016 Blog Planner Binder” where everything I need to note, track, etc… is all in one, easy to access, place.
As 2015 was the first year I began to monetize my blog, I found it difficult to keep track of which networks and companies hadn't paid me for services yet, and when I should expect to be paid. I found myself constantly going back and checking the date I finished a campaign and when the particular network pays out. Some networks pay weekly, others monthly, others net 45, etc… which makes it very difficult to keep track without some organization.
That is why I created this sponsored post payment tracker, which is designed to keep track of payment for completed sponsored posts and social media campaigns. This sheet makes it easy to track the work you have completed, who it was for, how much you are owed, when payment is due, and when you actually get paid.
Any outstanding payments can be seen with a glance, which serves as a reminder to touch base with the network or your contact.
