So, here is my idea for a great Associated Content method. I see no reason why it would not work. You start an Essay/Writing Contest. In the rules clearly state all submissions are your property. Give the winner either a cash prize or a playstation , ipod, or something like that. You can pick the topic of the essay contest, (make it specific to where you market it) or just let them choose. Also put in the rules that a winner will be declared after 200 submissions, or however many articles you want to submit to AC. This contest can be promoted offline, in newspaper ads, on college campuses, literally anywhere! So in the end you have 200 articles to submit to AC, you have cash for each one of those, your only expenses are promoting to get essay submissions and the winners prize. Good luck with this, post results if you give it a shot.
