Monetize Your Blog: Increase Your Sverve Score PLUS #SverveTurns1 Giveaway

Sharing is caring!

Disclosure: I’m excited to work with Sverve to share this with you today! If you decide to join Sverve and click on one of my links to do so, I will receive a small commission for the referral.

If you read my last post on how to Use Your Influence to Make Money Blogging with Sverve, you know I’m a fan. Sverve is unique because it’s a platform where you can connect with businesses and brands and a community where you can network with other bloggers at the same time.

It goes without saying that when you’re part of a community, it’s easier to meet bloggers that you find interesting. I’m now following quite a few bloggers that I met on Sverve. I’ve also found some great content…content I probably wouldn’t have seen otherwise! On your Sverve dashboard, you will see “tips” from those you follow. You can share, like and favorite these.

If you’re a member of Sverve or thinking about joining, you’re probably thinking about monetization. Sverve connects you with brands and businesses that are looking for your unique influence. Sverve is constantly adding new Sponsored Post Campaigns, and they recently added Sponsored Share Campaigns, where you are paid to tweet a particular campaign. These will show up right next to the Sponsored Post Campaigns, when you click on that section on the top.

But today we’re going to talk about some easy ways to increase your Sverve score, in order to maximize your opportunities with Sverve. And I also want to share with you a giveaway that Sverve is running for their affiliates (of which I am one), where both affiliates and new signups can win cash prizes

How to Increase Your Sverve Score

Your Sverve score is determined by several areas of influence.  The higher your score, the more (and better paying) campaigns you’ll have access to!

Social Influence includes social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, and Sverve tracks these numbers for you. That means as your numbers increase, you will also see them increase on your profile page. There may be a little lag time.

  • Hint: Stay engaged on your Facebook and Twitter accounts…you always want these numbers to be growing. Whenever I follow someone new on Twitter or Facebook, I always send them a note. That way they are aware that they have a new follower and can follow me back if they so choose. I personally never ask for a follow back, because I don’t like to assume they want to follow me, but they usually do. Also, when someone comments on your Facebook page, or tweets you, respond. No one wants to talk to themselves!

Blog Influence includes information like your page views, unique visitors, Alexa ranking, and Google page rank.

  • Hint: Your Alexa ranking and Google page rank will update automatically within Sverve, but you need to update your blog statistics on your own, as Sverve does not track this for you. So if you are currently a member of Sverve and you haven’t updated this info since you joined months ago, you probably want to go back and revisit these numbers. You can get all the information you need to do so right in Google Analytics. Even though this is self reported, do not inflate your numbers. Having the correct numbers is important to companies when they are selecting their influencers for campaigns. Plus you’re risking your own credibility! To update your blog statistics, click on the drop down menu by your name, then Account, then Blog Information.

Sverve Influence  is based on the number of endorsements you receive in your top three areas of influence, compared to your peers. This is one of the reasons you want to choose wisely when setting up your account. If you change them, you will lose all the endorsements for that particular area of influence. 

  • Hint: The more active on Sverve you are, the more endorsements you will receive. When you endorse someone, tweet it. When I endorse people in multiple areas, I usually only tweet one of them, but it’s a great way to let someone know that you are endorsing them. Otherwise, the endorsement simply sits in the Notifications section at the top, where they may or may not see it.

If you pay attention to these three areas, I guarantee you will see continual increases in your score!

#SverveTurns1 Campaign and Giveaway

Sverve is turning 1 in December and to celebrate their anniversary, they are running an exclusive giveaway for their affiliates*!

  • AND, they will also give away 2 $50 prizes to new Sverve signups that will also be randomly chosen! So even as a new signup you could win $50!
