is it possible? Im talking maybe 8hours daily work, is it possible to pull in 40-50 bucks a day?
i'd think it would be if you are writing good quality unique articles
Well i am us citizen and know somewhat about keyword research
You'd be better off applying to Demand Studios. You can get $15 per approved article. Of course that's a 1 time pmt vs Associated Content. Bukisa pays better than AC per view, but no upfront pmt. And DS does offer revenue share so if you can find your articles and drive traffic to them you get paid and are earning a passive income. Hope that helps!
I was denied by Demand Studios any trick to getting in? Lie on Resume what?
hmm great thanks i willl check it out, im really looking for 3-5 up front for articles.
Demand Studiios is definitely great if you can get in, but their standards are much higher than AC. I was using them for awhile, but because there's really no way make the equivalent of a fulltime job/daily income, I stopped submitting. I decided to stick with AC because it's got more bottom line earning potential once you know how to give them what they want.
If you do try Demand, you'll want to present them with a resume/portfolio and fill in really impressive profile stats.
As far as $50 a day doing AC whitehat, yes, it's definitely do-able if you're giving them the kind of content they're wanting. Most people who struggle with low offers from AC are diving in without getting to know what they want in comparison to other writing site's needs.
Is submitting several articles about the same subject an issues with AC? For example lets say one day you write 10 articles about exercise.
You can, but it's better to submit no more than 5 on the same account per day if the articles are all on the same niche. AC does like an "expert in field", but it's better to build it up slowly. Also, make sure that each of the articles on a broad niche like "exercise" are adding something unique in comparison to everything else on AC. I hate to keep asking this in so many threads, but have you read the "made $30" thread? We've given up a ton of tips and tricks in there.
yeah i did read some of that, i also read the book writing a aritcle in 7 minutes. I seem to be able to churn out some articles fairly fast espeically how-to stuff. Ill go over it again.
It's definitely possible and I have made $50 in one day on AC before (I do AC the "whitehat" way). I grab assignment desk stuff (anything $3.50+), write it fast, then grab four more, if available. Write my own stuff too for upfronts.
I can't do this all the time though since I have a full time job and there are not enough hours in the day.
Like Red said, Demand Studios is the way to go if you can get in. I'm planning on applying soon. Constant Content is good too but be patient with it as the editor is TOUGH and very slow at reviewing stuff. I had 3 article sales last week for a total of $80.
What are the requirements for these "prestigious" sites that are so hard to get into? I am kind of asking on behalf of my significant other - she is a senior in college with an English education major (going to be a high school English teacher) she's a ridiculously impeccable writer... (how I got A's on a lot of my course papers lol )
anyway, we don't know what the job availability will be in a few months when we graduate, so I am going to try and get her set up with some of these websites...
If you are going to do it yourself, texbroker.com is at least a step up, AC gives no guarantees where with textbroker you can at least see what each article pays beforehand and it takes out any time having to figure out what they want as they give specific topics.
To get into demand studios write some QUALITY articles on one of their affiliates sites such as eHow, Answerbag, Happy News, Knol/eHow, Knol/GolfLink, Knol/LIVESTRONG, Knol/Trails, Knol/Travels, Mania, Rsportscars.com, The Daily Puppy, Trails Travel, Travels, Pluck On Demand etc. Also consider writing some quality content on things like hubpages or squidoo.
HOWEVER - the site you write on to get accepted will be the site that you are able to write articles for. SO make sure that the site you pick has the type of articles/content that you are comfortable writing.
I know that eHow is instant acceptance but I don't know about the rest. Also that $15/article pmt is a one time payment, there is no passive income when you choose that type of article. Hope that helps!
I just got approved for Demand Studios, kind of excited lol, but actually I just realized some of the articles I submitted had some errors, since I used DNS to dictate them, so I don't think its extremely hard to get in, as long as you're a native English speaker and can write with good punctuation, you should be ok.
Also, I just pasted 4 or 5 of my articles into one long text document and uploaded it to them, and didn't link to articles on any other sites, so I don't think you have to write on other sites to get accepted, though it may help.
Also, despite this, some of the same articles I sent to D.S. were getting $1.50 offers on fucking AC, I am pretty down on their site but I realize you have to build up the clout so I just figure it'll be a longterm project, where I can work on ways to build traffic, then eventually outsource writing to their site.
@JasonG -- To get into essaywriters dot net have a passion for writing college term papers and know some general college subjects. Fill out their application form with a good writing sample. I got out because I couldn't stand doing term papers. LOL They pay by the page. I think they added resume services too. Turn around time is pretty decent. Watch the deadlines though on the stuff.
DS you don't have to have a link to website writing. They base it on your sample article and resume. DS has some quick fact sheets, tips and quick guides that pay decently per word and don't require as much writing if you want to get your feet wet.
If you get turned down for DS, use the same resume. Write new samples. Submit under a different email name, about 2 weeks later.
You can expect a lot of rewrites in the beginning with DS. But just go with the flow. Turn around time is about 72 hours. They pay Tuesday and Friday of each week via paypal.
about dot com is pretty decent pay as well.last I heard it was a little over $600 a month flat fee. but I've heard it's hard to get on there. I've never tried.
hacknmod says they will pay $10 to $40 for hacks.. you got to send in a sample.. haven't tried them.. i'm a tech flunkie
lovetoknow is paying $20 to $25 an article.. You have to go through a training period. I can't remember if my friend said they paid for training or not.
bibliobuffet pays $10 to $20 for book reviews. The books can't be hot off the press or a hot topic on the market (like Blue Moon). They're looking for reviews of general interest books that don't have a ton of competition for the review market.
@ JasonG - Since she's a great writer I would recommend having her start with DS as well. It kind of comes down to how much she's hoping to make in a day. With DS, you're capped at how you can make, but you can make more for each piece. Like Shawndellah said, go with the flow and she should do well.
The most earning potential per day will come from AC, but again, if she's looking to do it w/h, DS is the better choice based on how much she wants to earn.
@ madblacker - Sweet, congrats on getting in!
@ Shawndellah - Excellent post and breakdown!
is there a daily cap for DS?
I'd be curious to know what the resume for DS looked like or what you included. I already have articles that I wrote... so that's not an issue. The resume issue concerned me a little though because I just started writing and don't have any formal training other than being a good student in school way back when
same here , anyone have resume info?
