    Does anybody know of places besides DigitalPoint and Associated Content that you can sell real cheap articles real quick?

    I've had 100% success rate on DP and never tried AC but most people seem to be doing good as long as they know what they are doing. But, is there any alternative to these sites in case they both disappear over time?

    Note: DP would probably make a great place to sell rejected articles from AC.

    Agreed you can always sell the articles AC rejects to places like DP.
    Another place I have seen is constant-content but I submitted a well written article their once before and it was reject. and heres some others that i haven't tried out as of yet.
    1) EzineArticles

    2) ArticlesBase

    3) ArticleDashboard

    4) ArticleAlley

    5) Goarticles

    Yeah but isn't the only paid one above Ezinearticles, with an incredibly low revshare rate ($1.5/1000 views)?

    Constant Content is a little hard to rely on, due to the high rejection rate and the long time it takes to get sales (most people have reported at least a month).

    I'm interested in how you were successful at dp. I was thinking about incorporating them, but it seems a bit cut throat around there. So I feel like it would be a waste of time.

    But I'm willing to listen if you are willing to share.

    It really isn't that hard because everyone is looking for the same sort of generic topics:

    Social Networking
    iPod, iTouch, iPhone stuff
    SEO stuff
    Article Marketing
    Weight Loss
    Linkbuilding

    Its like, the more generic it is the quicker it seems to sell. Even if I tried to stem out to a slightly less generic topic such as "work at home moms", it took me 4 days to sell it verses like 12 hours with topics like the above.

    Visit the Copywriting section. It's basically where all of the "quality" writers complain that most people are looking to buy generic cheaply-written articles. Personally, I think that just makes the job a whole lot easier.

    The best way to write for them seems to be just write 5 articles of whatever (I just re-write stuff I find on article directories) and sell it for $15.00 ($3/article). I'm just doing it till I have enough money to hire some AC writers and to buy Redtide's book. Just make sure you're posting in the right section:

    Buy Sell Trade>>>Content (this if for selling articles you already wrote)

    NOT

    Buy Sell Trade>>>Services>>>Content Creation (this is for writers looking for jobs, mostly scams)

    @moronic: slightly ot, but i think red's book isn't longer available. he wrote that he isn't doing anything ac-related anymore (just have a look at the giant ac thread).
