    I got stuck on AC and was running out of topics. I spent a solid week away from AC writing and did some research on topics specifically for AC. Redtide's ebook inspired to take my AC one step deeper and make more money.

    When I got the AC article offers in on the different topics I experimented with, the majority were receiving DOUBLE what I had been writing!

    I also liked that a great deal of these higher paying topics were ones that you can outsource to your writers and spread out over multiple accounts.

    [1] The quickest way to find out what AC wants is to look at the C4C. Narrow the ppv C4C down further. Write 2 to 6 on the narrowed down and submit them over your multiple accounts. Outsource one entire batch on the narrowed down angles to your writers for hire as originals or rewrites.

    For example:

    Seasonal Jobs in Your Area is a ppv -- Switch it to How to Apply for Seasonal Jobs, Win Seasonal Job Interviews, Advantages of Seasonal Jobs, Finding the Highest Paying Seasonal Jobs, Finding Employees for Seasonal Jobs, Dressing for Seasonal Jobs

    [2] Write the seasonal articles (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, and so forth) from 'unique' angles. Take one angle and have your rewrites be all about that angle. Do 5 to 12 angles on different topics for the rewrites. Then submit only 1 or 2 daily from each angle group. You have to plan ahead to get the work rewritten early and submit that way, but it can pretty much guarantee you acceptance and payment.

    Don't make the mistake I did.. saturate all of one angle on one account. They'll accept all of them at a very low payment OR they'll reject them as not being unique enough. Well, that's what happened with me.

    For example: 6 articles rewritten on different aspects of Christmas tree lights, 6 articles rewritten on Christmas stockings.. I'd submit 1 article on Christmas tree lights and one on stockings to 6 different AC accounts.

    Keep repeating with each specific narrowed down topic. Set up your outsourcing to have plenty on each topic to post daily to all your different accounts.

    If you're going WH method, plan your writing day to write on 1 article on each narrowed down topic daily to submit. Make a list of at least 10, so you have 10 daily to go by.

    If you're WH and can take a week off to just write, do sets of 6 on each narrowed down topic. Put in individual folders. Then submit 1 from each folder daily on your account.

    [3] Do a very unique title with your keyword in it and is catchy. Write your own bang up and wonderful first paragraph.

    Put your rewriter's work in the body and write strong subheadings that match the title and first paragraph. These can add to your kw density and gives the AC editor something easy to scan to make the article appear more professional.

    Write your own bang up closing paragraph. Have it match the introductory paragraph and those subheadings. Can be just 2 or 3 sentences long.

    Add 2 credible references in the resources. Add one cool and engaging fact (you can copy/paste directly from the body of the article) and submit.

    More than likely you'll get a higher AC offer and no rejections. You can use DNS to do the opening and closing paragraphs and voila instant money.

    [4]Can you cook? You like food? Think of all the different ways you can add specific foods into your diet. Then write articles on those. If you write about the health benefits of apples, AC won't accept it.. too common knowledge. But if you write on top 5 ways to include apples in your breakfast.. it will be the 'uniqueness' that AC wants.

    How do you outsource that? Scrape from 3 or 4 articles that each have a different way to include X food in your diet.. these are usually on fad diet sites.

    Ok.. so think of how many different foods there are!! You get the picture. You got more articles you can scrape, have rewritten and ready to go just from that niche alone. It gets around posting recipe article for ppv.

    [5] I've seen Top 5 (AC likes top 5 or top 10 for some reason) X recipes. The recipes all used the same general food... Top 5 Apple Recipes .. and all the writer did was copy/paste the ingredients.. rewrite the directions to pass...

    Pick unique foods or special diet foods and there is another endless fountain of topics. You can scrape the directions for 5 or 10 recipes and have your rewriter handle those for you.

    I wrote and asked writers that did this if AC paid or if they were ppv only. They were all paid. I was told that the ingredients to recipes are copyright free. Someone correct me if I'm wrong!

    [6] Art medium is the general item used to create the art piece... photography, paint, glass, beads, clay, tin, wood, etc Scrape articles that discuss the TECHNIQUES used within each art medium. Outsource the rewrites. Submit only one art medium technique per day per account.

    [7] Gardening is all over the Internet. So too common? Not at all.. IF you go by a unique angle. Get out your map. Look up plants of a specific planting zone. Narrow the topics to Top 5 gardening tips for X plant. You'll find plenty to scrape. Do with all the planting zones.

    [8] Science project tutorials. These get good page views. I guess tons of parents looking for one to get their kid a good grade? Same principle, scrape and outsource.

    With the science projects.. do different age groups, science niches and difficulty levels. Then you can submit from each one daily on the same account.

    For example: 6 articles on biology projects for elementary school, 6 for biology projects for middle school, ... 6 articles on astromony projects... 6 articles on geology projects.. etc... then you can submit 1 article from each age group daily (even if it's the same science) onto each AC account

    Tips:

    Divide up your niches and accounts into folders and sub-folders.

    Submit from niche 1 on account A, submit from niche 2 on account B, submit from niche 3 on Account C. The next day rotate it. Submit from niche 2 on account A, niche 3 on account B and niche 1 on account C.

    OR Match complimentary general topics together for each account. Like all food articles on Account A, all art articles on account B, all gardening on account C. you'll find the narrowed down angles can overlap.. like a botany plant project could go on the account you do all gardening on... a growing bread mold science project could go on the account with food articles.

    I hope that this helps both newbies and advanced users. After reading Redtide's book, I knew that there had to be a way to step up my offers. I was happily surprised by using these techniques and these topics I have practically doubled my earnings with the SAME number of articles. You can do the math on that one. ;-)

    AC investors can get more return on their outsourcing. AC newbies and WH can get more return to eventually step it up to outsourcing.

    OK.. back to scraping. GL everyone!:cow_yello

    Excellent post!

    You couldn't be more right regarding seasonal articles. They're excellent as long as you're adding unique angles to what's already been covered previously. Because seasonal articles tend to not be evergreen, we need to really be bringing something special to the table to make them pay off.

    After getting that first $7+ upfront, I've been able to still submit that niche to the same account and get $7+ offers. Like I mentioned in that other thread, I've been spreading each submission out by 3-4 days to keep the upfronts high. So far, it's been working like a charm. I feel like this is a benefit for making this particular account an "expert in field" for the specific niche.

    Congrats for doubling your offers btw!

    Offers on Thanksgiving articles just took a nose-dive. Rev up your December holiday themes now to get the higher offers. Those did really well. Remember to, you can wing it now with 350 words instead of 400. If you do 10 articles a day that saves you hmmmm.. I think 500 words? I stink at math. LOL

    Like jurums said, we've explained in length in this subforum how to work AC as a non US citizen.

    Read some of the threads and you'll be able to make the $$$ on your own ;)

    Good luck!

    Much of the time if you change up the title and rework just the first and last patragraphs you'll be good to go. That's what I have my rewiters do and then the article will typically get upfronts offered by the next editor.

    @Shawndellah- Cant believe i missed this post when you posted it a month ago. lol. thanx 4 the useful info. and +rep.

    @Topgurl- You can earn a lot with A*C. I currently make around $80 a day (not a lot, I know) but I only have one rewriter so if you scale it up like redtide teaches you can make a whole lot more than that. I bet redtide makes a killing from A*C. :D

    Hey Guys, just sharing, for the starters of AC - if you don't have money to get yourself in GAF, then, you can post ads in India based classifieds, you'd get good response for content writers and its free of cost !

    $80 is a lot...

    Since you only have one rewriter, how many accounts do you have? If you don't mind me asking.
