    I need valuable suggestions! So i've been successfully using the AC method and making around $35-50/day.

    I decided to hire some ppl now I am getting KILLED with articles like and idk if it's just me or what but AC is slowing down when it comes to processing and paying for articles? So now i'm backed up like 60 or so articles on 3 accounts.

    If there is anybody else who outsources and is having this problem? If so please help me out here. Also any tips on payroll. Every week is starting to kill me especially since AC is slowing down(at least to me) I dont think they even look over articles on the weekends EFFEN lazy bastards!

    You should open more accounts maybe?

    I'd appreciate any and all valuable advice. Thanks.

    Tommy I'm having the same problems as you are, the processing time is so ridiculous now it's not even worth it. 2 weeks to get paid 3$

    Of course AC will slow down. People are dumping 50-100 articles in day and they need to edit them accurately.

    @ Cucr3 what's up?! I'm downtown. What's up?

    @ Lewi could you PM me that alternative?

    Idk I might just stop using it or maybe just extend the pay period and allow AC more time to catch up. Any suggestions there?

    sadly i think that the AC method will slowly die out. they will eventually make something that will limit the amount of accounts and probably limit amount of articles

    if anything they might put monthly payouts and that will turn a lot of people away.

    The next best site that pays for your submission is Helium.

    If you are really willing to churn out that many articles (granted, using outsourcing), then just put in some effort and build a niche blog. If you are writing articles that were passing muster with AC, you could build a blog up to a more or less residual income that would be greater than what you were pulling with AC in fairly short order.

    Another thing that you might want to consider doing is going to various freelance sites, and looking for people that need articles in small lots.

    You clearly have the quantities of scale on your side, so you should be able to get people who will pay you immediately, and you can keep your factory busy/happy.

    Well, their payment system is slightly different from AC's, I'm not sure they pay weekly either. But from the little I read, I think you are only eligible for upfront payment after receiving ratings for an existing article of yours that got published.

    His suggestion is also a great one as well, you could go to one of those Freelance site and look for those people who are seeking mass articles in various subjects and make them an offer. You could try this out at GAF -- I always see a lot of those ads there.

    @Mattstrike yea I think i'm going to give that a try since I already have a team of REALLY good writers.

    @Ken3401 Thanks for the heads up I think I'm just going to get out of that business all together. It got saturated a lot quicker than I thought(or maybe I just caught the tail end of the wave) either way life goes on got other things to do anyway :D
