    I've always used GAF for my AC content. While it does take some effort to hire good rewriters at $1 per, very few things in the online money making game are easy.

    The only way to scale up your earnings on AC is to outsource. The irony is that you can't really afford to pay more than $1 to see seizable profits. However, keep hunting, and you might find some good writers at that rate.

    The review time varies, but here lately it's been closer to 1-3 days for a lot of us. I posted up some samples of my GAF ads in the first few pages of the "made $30" thread if you haven't seen them. You have to include some key things in your ads in order to avoid having too many of the bidders waste your time.

    Either way, you need to be persistent and weed through the non-native English bidders.

    I got my writers from gaf, it usually took me around a week to find each one, the effort is worth it in the end though

    Anyone please help me with this.

    Let say your writer produce 10 article for you at $2 per article (total $20) but only 4 got accepted for $3 per article (total $12). You are losing right? ($12 - $20 = -$8). So my question is :

    1. What you will do if this thing happen?
    2. Tell the writer to rewrite and hold the payment for the rejected article and pay only after the article successfully accepted?
    3. Out of 10 article how much usually will get accepted based on your experience?

    Thanks~

    well what reason did AC give you for your article being rejected, if it was rejected due to the topic being to broad of scope then that is not your re-writers problem you have to send your re-writers quality niche content that you know AC will accept.

    Unless you're already getting consistent upfronts of $4+ I wouldn't even consider bringing on a writer at $2 per article for use with AC. Your profit margins will be too small.

    Like Jack mentioned above, if 6 out of 10 have been rejected then you need to take a look at the quality of content you're sending them. If the rejections are due to grammar, spelling etc then you'll want to talk to them and let them know that they won't be paid if the articles aren't up to par, either that or look at hiring someone else that has better grammar, punctuation and spelling.

    Home Page:
    You have to be explicit when you source writers from GAF i.e. your brief must be detailed. I always check for those with at least 10 positive reviews and NO negative feedback.

    In addition, and because of a psychological factor, few good writers opt for $1 per article, but as soon as you exceed this figure, the quality of writers seem to improve dramatically. My suggestion therefore is for you to pitch your offer at $1.25 as it has worked out very well for me, and I'm sure you will also have success.

    Best of luck!!!
