How can we improve PostJoint?

Bloggers should put a fixed payout price for a certain site

Is is possible that for every blog site being offered, there's only a fixed payout price?
Because regardless if I put $25 or $100 as my max payout, the same bloggers offer me the same sites, and their price would depend on how much I can pay. I used to have this transaction with one blogger where I initially paid him/her $25 for 1 post, but when I raised the bar to $100 for a different article (because the client was VIP), the same blog was offered for the price of $99.

I just find it unfair and ridiculous, considering their blog stats don't change. If I'm willing to pay more, it means I'm looking for a site with higher quality.

I hope PJ can fix that.

    We don't recommend this feature. We make offers to publish on post based on 1) relevance of post content to the content our blog; 2) Amount of resources that go into making the post fit our blog; and 3) Link backs' relevancy to our blog content. For example, if there no photographs included with a post opportunity, we must take the time to identify and/or purchase photos consistent with the curating standards of our blog. This costs us.

    I've seen it too. I have one piece on offer for $100 right now and I'm making a massive loss on that if it goes for that price, but I need to do it to keep my client happy. My absolute limit is usually $25 and that usually means I made much less than minimum wage on that post.

    The trouble is that the offers for $100 are no better and I am still receiving offers from sites that have absolutely nothing to do with the topic. It's wasting blogger's and advertiser's time by not being able to at least specify a PR and DA, at least when you are paying higher rates.

    Hi Keira,

    It is not ridiculous, but you need to know more. For example for $100 you need to set some requirements like for example "PR6 / DA50..." or something like that. This way you will receive only HQ offers.

    Thanks for your suggestion Keira. We understand your concern about the same blogs offering at the different rates. The idea behind the max budgets is to give a head start to the better established sites the higher your budget is.
