|Blogger is a cheap workforce|
Are you a blogger? That means you're a cheap workforce. This is how you see companies that want to cooperate with you. Of course, not all but a lot of companies when writing to us for cooperation see us as a cheap workforce. In this article you will learn what barter cooperation is, when it is worth undertaking it and whether it really pays off.
What is barter cooperation?
Barter cooperation is when your product for your work (in this case a blog post, promotion on social media) is a product. You do not get remuneration in the form of money, but only the product, device, etc. you test, etc. Most often barter cooperation is offered to low-range Bloggers or by companies that want to advertise their product on blogs or on social media at low cost. For the company, it's actually only benefits - without incurring special costs (the cost is only the product that they give for testing) they receive ranges. This form of cooperation is often used by online stores and smaller companies, as well as those that are just beginning.

How to use Blogger?
I will tell you a little bit about cooperation offers that I came across over the years (I've been blogging since 2009). To this day, we often get cooperation offers for several hundred zlotys, sometimes even for 100 zlotys. Remember that even if the offer is very absurd, it is not worth pointing out. It is better if you politely refuse to cooperate than write a long e-mail with the caps. No sense - why waste time. In addition, you do not know whether you will not find this person on the occasion of another cooperation, company or bloggers meeting. Such a person will definitely remember you. Seriously, it's not worth it.

And from interesting offers, which I recently came across on the portal, which brings together Bloggers and companies (Reachablogger) - an ad appeared with the requirements: over 10 thousand. uu, publication of a post with 3 links to an online store, mention in social media. In general, wreaths wonders, and you know what the budget of the order was? 50 PLN. net. It might be funny, but unfortunately some Bloger was tempted and published for PLN 50. sponsored post on his blog, posted 3 links to the store, mentioned it on the channel in SM and thanked for cooperation. It's sad that Bloggers don't value their work and their time. It is a pity that it spoils the blogosphere and later professional Bloggers receive cooperation offers for 100 PLN. It is not surprising, since Bloggers allow it.
