SocialSpark

IZEA has just launched a new website called SocialSpark. SocialSpark is a social marketing network that provides an advertising marketplace for advertisers and bloggers to find each other.

SocialSpark is related to other services that are around that pay bloggers to advertise stuff on their blogs. Most of these services, however, mainly focus on providing sponsored content type services, whereas SocialSpark offers both sponsored content and display advertisements.

More importantly, this site is much more interactive than most of the other sites are. As a blogger, you get to both promote your blogs, as well as look for offers from advertisers actively.

SocialSpark also allows you to look at other members’ profiles, their blogs and you can send them messages. Being the nosey person that I am, I especially like that you can brows peeps’ profiles.

It is cool to see what kind of names people have come up with for their blogs, like How to Split an Atom. The geek in me hearts that name. As you can see from that profile, another great thing about this new site is that is looks so fancy. I am a sucker for a nice layout.

The site has only launched recently, therefore, how useful and successful SocialSpark is really going to be only time will tell.
