    I wasn't sure where to post this thread, so if it's in the wrong spot please move it mr moderator. Thanks.

    I have recently completed the build of my incentive based article directory. I am offering to pay authors on the site on a per 100 word basis, but I am a marketing nub! I have a few classified ads out, but am looking for other ways to target this type of market.

    I am on linkedin and twitter too. But there has to be a more effective way to get authors to the site. Anyone have ideas they would share? I am looking over the forum for ideas as well.

    Who are you targeting?
    What niche?
    How much do you pay?

    Targeting freelance article writers
    Paying $.60 per 100 words published
    Niche= writing articles for money

    I personally feel that your niche is a good one, but the payout seems to be much less. may be you can use freelance sites. promote in other forums.

    Thanks for the advice. Why do you think the payout is much less? Compared to what?
