    Whats going on with AC? Their offers have recently dropped to less than $1.00

    I have submitted tons of articles of which they all used to be accepted for up front payments from minimum of $2.30 to over $5.00

    Just recently, this week I cant get an offer for over $1.00 What gives?
    I can tell you their response is BS here it is:

    "AC is building a unique library of online content, and this submission doesn't differ enough in topic or breadth from existing content. Content on this topic is too common and widely available online."

    What a crock. Im not selling them a well written all correct article for no fricking 99 cents. They can shove it! I dont care what they say. Their editorial people are so inconsistent its a JOKE!

    Is anyone else fed up with these assholes? Can anyone say they are doing well this week with AC? Anybody else know whats going on?

    It probably has to do with suply and demand, they have so many people submitting now and they will accept the small amounts that it is probably driving down the offers.

    They know if you turn it down 10 more will fill its place so they are not worried about it.

    Time to think outside the box on this one.

    there is a post here it may be in jr vip that tells you what to do with ac. [cant say here if it is in jrvip]

    This is interesting. I went on AC website and their whole general forum is locked by their Administrator. No posts or replies. I thouht Id go there and see what other writers think.
    These guys are avoiding issues Id say.

    Well if you think about, how much money could they really be making off each article? I know personally when I think "hey i want to read some articles" I don't head over to associatedcontent right away at least.

    Go back to the articles that you were earning $5.00 on and try to do a few more on that or similar niches. I agree with you though...AC majorly sucks! I stopped writing anything for them because it just wasn't worth my time!

    AC is most definitely going down the toilet. Time to use those articles differently.

    Yeah...things aren't looking great with AC. I'm still submitting but I've been spending most of my time testing some other methods. Looks like It'll be time to move on soon.

    I know they are taking forever to approve articles and give upfront payments.

    AC article submitting has run dry.

    Time to move on now.

    It got too saturated.

    That is what you call supply and demand when there is to much supply the prices go down (economy 101) don't bitch about it, move on.

    People ho are smart used the money to invest in other (and better paying) projects, cus you could see from a mile away that this wasn't going to last for ever.

    So please stop whining about it and seek other opportunities to make money.

    textbroker pays better, but you need to fill customer's orders directly.

    I submitted my first article and it was denied because it said it went against the T.O.S. or some crap. It was about H.Y.I.P scams, something I wrote a long time ago, I wasn't promoting any particular site, just tips to avoid getting scammed. So I just haven't bothered trying to resubmit anything since it appears to be over saturated now.

    well look at this, this forum alone has like 30,000 members when this technique came out and got very popular it had like 30 pages or more for just one thread, so there are many many people doing this method. So it is overly saturated. Remember AC should not be your main money maker, you should use AC to get money fast and move to bigger and better things. And like any over saturated method sooner or later most people will move on and you will be able to make money with them again, as long as they dont go broke meanwhile. hehe! Just guys hang in there I still make 2-3 dollars per article. And I still write about dating traveling.
