I should say that Ive been with AC for a while and I have a high clout, so that helps me get paid more probably. But you can always raise your clout by sending some traffic to your articles. And I've also yet to have had an article rejected. Ive gotten pretty accustomed to what kind of articles they do and don't like.... 1. They like content that people are searching for specifically. Lists, guides, where-to's and how to's that are really specific and niche. For instance, the top five best sushi restaurants in a certain city OR where to take swing dance classes in another city (and mention several sources of course). Product guides have done well for me too. Articles outlining fashion trends, how to wear certain fashion trends and where to buy particular items online. Try to make them specific. Instead of saying where to buy video games or even x box video games online, narrow it down to a certain type of x box video game. Think about holidays too. You can do gift guides for Valentines day or local events for Valentines day. 2. Hire a freelancer from get/a/freelancer/.com. I can never find people to work for $1 per article on DP (even $1.25 is rare there), but at GAF you can easily. Just make a post that you're looking for someone to write 25 articles for you for $1 each and ask for samples so you know that their writing is good. Usually you can get 10-15 responses within 24 hours. You might have to do some editing but it doesn't usually take long. And it helps to have several writers working for you. 3. Instead of taking ezine articles and having them rewritten, you can pull reviews or product descriptions from different sites/blogs, paste it in a text all together and give it to your rewriter. Like if you're doing a restaurant guide, go to a bunch of blogs or restaurant review sites and pull five short reviews. Or if you want to list the best eco friendly high fashion shoe company, do a search for eco fashion brands, pull the descriptions of the labels from several different websites (heck some of it even might come from ezine articles) and then tell your writer to blend it all together in the article. You can even take the product names and copy write off of a webstore, just make sure your writer blends it together well and adds on a nice intro and outro paragraph. I really hope this helps!
