    So I have access to about 1500 files. Probably most of them are in an essay format, sizes ranging between 200-600+ words. So my little brother told me his highschool has a shared server where everyone can store their files. So he got those on a portable hard drive and gave them to me. Copyright infringement really isn't an issue because 1 no one will check, and 2, no one cares. Now these are american students so it's legible, but there is mixed niches and documents.

    Here's the deal, I put like 14 of these articles on Associated Content and only like 3 made upfront payment, and that was only for like $2 each and only like 30 cents from performance.

    So this is taking way to much time basically and I'm not getting enough for it. I thought that this would be like an easy $4000, but apparently AC hates my stuff. Overall it's good really broad content though, some in great niches like business, just ac doesn't seem to want to pay for it.

    HERE'S MY QUESTION! WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH IT TO MAXIMIZE MY PROFITS?

    I'm really stumped here because it seems like I have a real jewel on my hands, but it has been more of a liability to me because submitting and with my current returns, I'm at way below 10/hr.

    You could organize most of them into packages related to different niches, maybe 10 or so articles, but from the sounds of it, looks like you'd have to do a lot of digging.

    Then go to DP or somewhere similar and resell the article packages.

    Interesting... Doesn't quite seem worth the time, don't know if they are exactly the right format. Looking for more ideas.

    bum marketing would be one thing... but like the DP idea, but would take some time

    Code:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/45451-happy-new-year-bhw-heres-100-day-gift-all.html
    then there's the other article place that doesn't care much, I signed up but haven't done much, but hey it might work..

    Code:
    http://www.bukisa.com/join

    Yeah I'm thinking about submitting for upfront payment to AC for all of them but non exclusive, and than get what I can from upfront, but also resubmit them all at Bukisa. Anyone have a better suggestion than that?

    Should I trust all the articles to them? How would I go about this.. What are the costs involved, where would I find people who know exactly how to *perfect* them/ make them AC worthy?

    Profit too low. Not college essays, more like high school papers.

    Brilliant man to just have them completed.
    It probably won't work though since it's the niches that are bad and not so much the articles themselves.

    Yeah that sounds great. Can I do that in addition to AC (non-exclusive) and bukisa?

    Would anyone maybe be willing to take these off my back for say $450?

    Yeah I was thinking about it. On one hand it would be great to get recurring income from the views the generate, but wouldn't $450 just be really nice right now. I mean it would take a shitload of time to do tags and titles alone just for those 1.5k
