    So I was thinking of outsourcing articles for less than $1 and putting them associatedcontent for $2 to make $1 profit per article and then scale it up. Problem is, I can't find any writers that would write an article for $1. Actually I found one odesk and ordered a few articles but they didn't AC didn't accept them. Anyone know any people on odesk/elance or other freelance sites that can write AC-approved articles for $1 or less?

    doing it for less then $1.00 is hard.
    I have found people on odesk who can do it for $2.00 but thats the lowest price I have found for an article that will be accepted by associated content.

    I don't mean to burst your bubble, but AC (YCN) changed their guidelines recently and I haven't had any articles accepted for upfront payment since they implemented those changes. This doesn't mean that your plan won't work, necessarily. Given the changes, though, you'd need to proofread/tweak to make sure it's PERFECT before you submit. Time spent for $1+ profit may not be profitable, really. There are plenty of other places you could sell those articles if you're outsourcing. Constant Content, for example.

    Articles not only have to be unique to get accepted, they have to be informative, and can't just rehash info that's been submitted a thousand times before. Not worth the effort for a dollar or two if you ask me.

    The OP, and anybody else interested in this, is better off finding a free auto spinner, spinning directory articles themselves and extensively tweaking them to make sure they flow logically and are informative. Or, they should write original articles themselves for other uses (websites, blogs, etc) but find people (on DP, perhaps) to REwrite them for $1 each, which may be easier to do since you're not paying a measly buck for a NEW article. Submit the rewrites to AC and see what happens. If AC doesn't accept them, you still can use the articles for free directory submissions, backlinks, and so on.

    Yes, I have sold on Constant Content before. Not the easiest gig because of the demanding/slow/nitpicky editors. But CC is nice money if you can get it.

    I absolutely agree. Why pay $1 when you still have to proofread the damned thing and make corrections, etc. Just spin for free and do the same thing -- cost: $0!
