    I understand a lot of people are still stuck on the AC train and I don't knock. Whatever melts your butter,ya know? But I thought I'd share with you guys the sites that i've been using to get paid top dollar for well written outsourced articles.

    Daily Articles is a lot like Constant Content except it's a little more organized. People you should look at both of those websites CC has earned me some GREAT money in the past.

    Textbroker, Bright Hub and Demand Studios are good. They pay pretty well, but you may begin to feel hemmed in by their topics. Bright Hub gives quite a bit of freedom within your channel. Textbroker is about 1.5-5 cents per word, depending on your rating. Bright Hub is $10 per article with some page view bonuses, Demand Studios is $15 per article. You will have to choose an article topic, much like AC's system (calls for content). You'll need a resume, writing sample, and you'll need to be approved (which shouldn't be hard if you're producing quality)

    The trouble is, we work AC by rewriting and spamming them with shit. Can you get paid well submitting rewrites to these sites?

    I know sites where I can make $20 an article easy if I take the time, research my niche and write quality.

    Would any of these sites accept OCR scans from old encyclopaedias?

    Also, does Bright Hub allow you to submit any content or do they require we write about a topic they suggest?

    Dude, that is what outsourcing is for! You can find a good writer to write you some quality original articles, like say for $0.01 per words. You can sell those articles on Constant Content and Dailyarticle and double your outsourcing investment.

    It was a blessing in disguise when AC flagged my account. I moved on to sites like CC and dailyarticle and have not looked back.

    You don't have to even bother using article rewriters for these sites, you can have original content written at the going price and still make a lot of money. Just find a good writer to write you original niche related articles and you are good to go.

    Yeah, I agree with vucinic. There are many more websites that pay, not only AC. I usually target those with revenue sharing program like printnpost or triond. I love them because if set-up correctly, they can give you a good residual income.

    The worst part about Associated Content, in my opinion... is that it seems to take two weeks between submission and payment. Annoying. Still though, I agree with the idea of going for residual income. That adds up, when you keep submitting.

    (Hint: I have more luck getting articles accepted, AND higher payment when writing about something ...new/potentially controversial.) :D

    hey guys

    Some great info here

    How does AC and such sites monetize the articles? Does anyone know for sure.

    I wouldn't mind getting into something like this but higher up the food chain.

    If someone knows this industry well and would like to start a long terms AC type site let me know

    There is probably good money to be made in it as long as plenty of work is outsourced

    PM me if interested

    Os...

    These other sites sound like they have good potential. Do any of them have an option where if you sign someone up under your link that you get recurring income from the articles that they write?

    Thanks for mentioning that Kristi. You just gave me an idea also with using web submitter. :)

    You just open a whole lot of ideas in my head. I'm seeing tons of places where I can set up very curious and compelling ads using the links to my articles. I'll even cloak the links for greater effect if necessary. I'm going to give Triond a try with some of the articles that I have on my computer which I didn't bother to use.

    How about traffic exchange with Triond? I know that, that would certainly get you banned from AC for sure. I'm highly doubtful it's allowed at Triond but I'm asking nonetheless.

    I guess a lot of people are so used to AC that it's tough for them to try something new. Most of us tends to stay with what's comfortable, and not what's best for us.

    For constant content, you still have to wait for people to buy your articles or else you will not get paid?

    Yes, but if you know know what people are looking to buy, which are generally niche related articles. If you write a couple and submit them there and keep your price reasonable, you won't have to wait long before selling.

    The problem with constant content is that not many articles sell a day and they are real Nazi's about grammar. Of course, grammar rules don't actually exist in the English language, so clear sentence structure is subjective.

    I had about half of mine rejected, although I sold five or so articles there. I just got tired of it. I have no idea what the editor is looking for and would rather just post them to my websites.

    Keep us posted of your results.

    About Constant Content, they can be real dicks there, but at the same time you can make some decent money.
