If you are a blogger in groups about blogging, you have probably seen many questions about media kits. One of the most asked questions I have seen about media kits is “What do I charge?” First you need to know about the kit.

“How much should I charge for a sponsored blog post?”
Various articles say the minimum you want to charge is $50.00. From there you decide on other factors. In the past, it was based on your traffic and number of subscribers.

It would be better to have a targeted list of subscribers that plan to purchase than to have a larger number of people that do not.
