Today, I am going to share with you one of my favorite tools for blogging.
Like so many of you, I get overwhelmed with keeping track of sponsor spotlights, who needs to fill out what, who gave me the info for my giveaway etc etc.
So when I discovered exactly what google docs could do, I was amazed! See, I had only ever used it to print out notes at school or something like that but it can do so much more!
One amazing thing that it can do for bloggers is have you create a form for people to fill out with all the info you need. It then creates a spreadsheet for you. This saves so much time copy and pasting and making lists.
With this and passionfruitads, the time I spend collecting sponsor info and making sponsor posts is cut in half! Which means I can spend more time on twitter and promoting with all of you lovely people!
Here's how you start:
Step 1: Sign into google and click on "Documents" in the top toolbar
You are going to open it and then see a list of all the documents you may have saved, sent yourself etc.
Next, click on create and then select form. It's going to take you here:
You use this to create all the questions you want someone to answer.
For my sponsor forms, I just went through what I offer for each ad. Make sure to include a spot for your sponsors to put a pic, post their social media sites, an info section and anything else you offer. Such as, for my large ads, I offer an option to guest post on my blog. I made it a multiple choice question so when the person that fills it out clicks yes, I just email them with the date that I need their post by.
You can add as much or as little as you want to these forms. You can also make it a little prettier by clicking on theme and picking one you like.
