Paid to Blog with SocialSpark



This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Bikini Burgers is a dream I’ve had for a little bit of time. I came up with it while in culinary school. It’s a dream that will need a little bit of capital to get off the ground. Money I don’t have right now. So I need to be creative in how I raise it. I found an internet site called SocialSpark. SocialSpark is a marketplace for bloggers. Anyone who has a blog can earn money for posting stories about products they like and use. Its fun and so far easy to do.

SocialSpark is different from other sites that offer you money to blog for them. You don’t have to blog a current product or industry. You can choose what to post on your blog. Using SocialSpark I am compensated for writing blog post about companies and products I support. Payment is made on a cost per post basis. I find new product and services and share them with you all and I get paid to do it. All I had to do was have a blog and take the short steps on their website to get it all set up. Took me less then 5 minutes.

The money made from SocialSpark will go into the Bikini Burger start up account. This is the perfect way to increase our blog hits, have content that is worth you reading and generate money by doing it. You may have a trip you want to go on or have a blog you hve been working on for years and have not made enough money to do it full time. SocailSpark can help you do go on that trip or help you turn your blog into a full time job. Check them out and see what you think. So for I love it and think it’s going to be a big help in Bikini Burgers getting out of the Garage and on to the Streets of Sacramento.

Pitch Day

Its pitch day once again at school. This is the whole reason I came up with Bikini Burgers. I was looking to start a company that was not around my area. I quickly found that there are a few Taco Trucks in the Sacramento Area but none kicking out supper good food with the level of entertainment that Bikini Burgers will bring. No one doing what Kogi BBQ is doing LA and a few other young cooks like myself are doing around the state.

So not to bore you on to much of the paper work. I am getting the business plan done this week, we are looking for used mobile kitchens and a prep kitchen. This is going to be a fun company to start and run. Remember to click on the stuff on the side and buy a shirt or mug to help us get the funding we need to pay our bills.

Thanks for reading and keep coming back my friends.

Bikini Burger First Video

Check our our video. Send it to your friends and get to word out about the Bikini Burger Movement.

The penguin shines across the loving hydrogen.

A Culinary Student Dream

Hi, name is Jeremiah Johnson and I’m a current culinary student with a dream of having the most successful mobile food kitchen in Sacramento California. We will be using social media and word of mouth as our main advertisements. We will sell top quality grass feed meats and local raised produce.

Our idea is a Mobile Kitchen called Bikini Burger. Yes we are going to have girls in bikini tops with shorts serving our customers but the name came from the fact we are selling small healthy burgers. We will be buying local only.

For our business to run we need a Mobile Kitchen, a commercial kitchen to prep, 15 employees, a cargo van, a custom website & Logo and a line of Logo products to sell. Our service area will be the Sacramento, Roseville, Rocklin areas. We would do 6 locations a day, 5 days a week. Our weekends will be set up for catering and events. The events are where we expect to make our big money.

We will reward our pledges with free food, a private kick off party and maybe a few shirts and some gear. We will spread the word about our new company start up with facebook, twitter, and Youtube videos of our models cooking our burgers.

Our goal is to up and running by January 1st, 2011. I have been working on our business plan with 2 current top chefs in my area and already have a full menu with recipes. Our start up will be high, but not has high as opening a full restaurant. Good Food Served By Good Looking Young Ladies.

This site is being started today to create intrestin our idea and to get it out of the garage and into the streets. We welcome anyone to join us taking on the new food movement. Drop us a line and say Hi.
