    Is there any other sites out there that do the same type of thing? That pay upfront payments? I have been searching for quite awhile and I can't find anything.

    I don't think so, Sil3nt. I think AC is the only site of it's kind.

    I always wondered why no one tried to copy AC.

    I have as well, it's such a money maker for them.

    Sil3nt, there are no others I'm aware of with the same backdoor/upfront payment format that AC has. There's other freelancing sites like Constant Content, Triond, and others, but you have to wait for someone to make an offer on your articles, which can take forever. (sorry if I'm telling you things you already know)

    I'm sure it's just a matter of time before someone copies AC's business model and sets out to give them some healthy competition.

    Should be good :D

    How much do you think start up would cost?

    Plus, would have to know where to get all that money from to pay everyone. I'm sure AC isn't earning from Google Ads alone.

    They are earning from adsense, as well as from distribution of the content to other publishers in their call for content service which they make a healthy profit on as well.

    Somewhere in this forum are at least 2 giant lists of other sites, like triond, helium, etc. All the sites have their own rules or methods of paying, so it will be worthwhile to research them or at least go thru this particular forum for more info. AC has been the easiest way for many so far, but it's getting to be more difficult getting paid.

    Werrich is right, there are some great resources tucked away here at BHW with writing sites. A few more that come to mind are Demand Studios, Brighthub, and Textbroker. They tend to be more strict than AC though and there's a substantial delay in getting payment offers from them.


    It's hard to say Milly, but I'm sure if you had the upfront capital it could be a great money maker.

    Unless you have lots of money (by lots, I mean L*O*T*S!) don't even think of competing with AC. Why do you think other giants are not coming up with a parallel site? Surely the top online brains must have thought of putting up a parallel site as soon as AC was becoming successful, but there is still no serious competition to AC? Hmmm....

    I rather stick to sites with upfront payment because I am capable of submitting a lot of work. But yah, thanks.

    how do you get around the non-US thingo, im in Aus/asia but they're not giving upfront payment for anyone outside of USA (which sucks).

    im thinking of making a US account, just so i get upfront payment and not be put on Performance Payments only

    Well I hope I don't get shunned from AC. No good.


    Edit:

    Oh and actually I do know of one but you have to submit a resume and apply for the job. You get way better pay then AC but its a bitch to get accepted.

    Im actually a member there and have been for awhile just to make a few extra bucks here and there.

    How exactly do you make money off of eHow.com ?? They don't really tell you.

    Bukisa is good, the thing is, is that they aren't as friendly to search engines as places such as eHow.

    I also heard that they are unreliable with payments...
