    Hello,

    I am looking for writing/editing partnership (to collaborate on Associated Content and/or other paid writing sites). I am a native English speaker (from the US) and have some college education. I am willing to write/edit if someone publishes, so long as I am making at least $35/day. I can write, rewrite, edit, and SEO articles in MLA and APA style formats. If you have the work and the wage, hit me up.

    How many articles are you able to write each day? Assuming payouts of between $3-5/article, you'd have to write 7-12 EVERY day just to make what you want, not including a cut for whoever your poster is. Obviously you could make more or less from your articles and there are partner calls that pay more, etc... just a general guideline.

    just curious, if you are from the US why dont you just submit them yourself? Do you need the ideas. Are you wanting to write everything then give it to someone and let them submit it on their account and then pay you?

    Thanks,
    waiting for details.

    Honestly if your from the U.S. and you need to make a wage that high you should just be promoting AC yourself. Plus you can make some residual income with page views as well if you have your own account. At $35 a day you would have to write a lot of articles to make it profitable and worth it for you and the person paying you.

    You'll make more money promoting yourself in forums and bidding on good jobs...let alone splitting your AC money with someone else lol.

    You are all correct in the point that it is not an efficient way to large sums of money. I have written for AC myself, making about $8 (lowest) to $12 (highest) per article. Simply put, I don't really know much else, and having tried and failed at other attempts I am seeking to scale up what works. I am looking for the best $/time ratio I can get, as my main goal in life is to sit on the internet and get paid. If I can outsource the writing and editing, submitting takes all of two minutes. I would love to be making money other ways, and I am working on them. I am just new, trying a few things out, and seeing how they work. I think this method sucks, but it's all I've got at the moment. Thanks for all the responses, though.

    edit: Technically the lowest payment I received for an article was $6, and that was someone else writing.

    Honestly, I do write well. I have thought about pursuing this online, but I'm not sure really where to start. If someone could offer me a writing position I would be cool with that. I just need to be making $40/day.

    Edit: I saw article writing services listed here at bhw. How plausible is it to buy articles for $3 and make profit enough for $200/week? Working mainly as a publisher, I guess I would have to find other places to sell the same article. Is this realistic?

    If you are honestly making $8 an article at AC (this is way more than the majority of people make) you should be promoting yourself on forums and bidding on higher dollar jobs...do some legwork, all the information is out there waiting for you.

    I don't know of any other sites that will pay for the articles, so if you did pay 3$ it would have to be a really good article.

    I still dont understand why you dont write for yourself. Making 8$ per article will blow anything else out of the water. Your not going to buy articles and sell them for 8. If you pay someone to write for you it would be a lot lower wage.

    I believe if you want to make the most money, you will need to find either a really good writer for cheap, or do the work yourself and get upfront payments and view payments. You will make your goal easy.

    I haven't written anything in 7 months or so, though. I also have a lot of coursework and irl work (lame) to do. It's not efficient $/time wise, as everyone only wants to hire cheap writers. I'd guess it's not likely that many people would want to pay $250-300 weekly to a writer. At least not here.

    Well if you arent going to put in the time to promote yourself then yeah AC is about the only way to go. If however you have an extra 15-20 minutes in a day then you can promote yourself quite easily for higher paying jobs.

    The only time I've heard of someone getting $12/article on AC is with content calls or with the performance payments and thousands of views. What were you writing about and how long were the articles that they were paying you so well?

    It's hard to scale up when you are a one-man show even with software tools to automate certain aspects of publishing. It takes an organization to do really big-time stuff.

    I do have some ideas about scaling up web-based operations. Maybe we can PM each other and share ideas.

    Try elance but not Getafreelancer. If you are not aware, people who outsource AC articles pay $1 each or maybe $2 which is nothing because their upfronts are usually $3 and $4. I think you should do your own thing... but thats just me
