    honestly I don't know what to do...
    :confused::confused::confused:
    Here's what's on my mind. If I write 10 articles/day x 30 days =300 articles.


    Option A:
    Write Articles for AC. And get upfront payment.
    If I post them on AC (let's presume 20% get rejected, and I get on average $1.5) I would net $360.

    Option B:
    Write Articles and post them on ezinearticles and link them to my website where I sell an ebook for $14 (twittercoaching.info)
    If I post them on ezinearticles I would have 300 articles linking to my website. Since the report is $14 it means I have to make 26 sales for Option B to defeat Option A.

    What would you do??? And if you would go with Option B how long do you estimate for the 26 sales to be made?

    thank you.

    I would go with Option B. And if you are wondering how long before you get 26 sales, really depends on the quality of the articles and your resource box.

    I'd go with Option C as below or else blogging of some description. If you are happy with setting them up and backlinking/seo-ing them, you'd have a great headstart! And you would earn much more in the long-term.

    I think splitting the 300 in half would be best. I will test which 150 group converts better and after that improve what's working :)

    thanks for sharing your opinions guys.

    You could also submit it to AC first for upfront payment and then you will see for which articles you get an offer. I'd accept the high paying ones and use the rejected articles / low upfront offer articles for ezine/infobarrel/micro blogs etc.

    I vote this as best answer :)

    My suggestion - package into 30 * 10 article packages and sell each one 20 times for $50 each limited PLR. 20 packages @ $50 = $1000 * 30 = 30k :)

    Hello MrDoru,

    Since the minimum at AC is 350 words lets say that all your articles were 350 words. You can easily find someone from freelancer.com to write you articles of this length for $2.1, maybe even less. Make sure that you require them to write in American syntax and without any spelling/grammar mistakes. It is also a good idea to ask for samples, 200 words is fine, and say you are going to be testing them for plagiarism (its OK if you don't, just say you do). Just keep this all in mind now I will come back to it.

    Submit everything to AC, all 300 articles. Whatever gets rejected should be submitted to EZA where you will have both links pointing to your website with a product you are selling. Now if you follow a decent model your website should convert around 1:100 (I KNOW THE REST OF YOU THINK THIS IS TOO HIGH/LOW, JUST LET IT BE). The actual conversions and number of visitors all depend on your keyword research, article, author box, website and salescopy but 1:100 is a realistic number for website conversions.

    Now your commissions at AC will be different for every article. For each article that pays out more than $2.1 (or whatever rate you got) have your writer write an original article on the same topic. Pocket the rest of the cash. If all of your articles pay out more than $2.1 then put them all back into getting articles written. If none of them pay out more than $2.1 then keep all the cash for bills and yourself.

    Hopefully most of your articles are accepted at AC and get you high commissions. This will give you an idea of where the best money is at as I am assuming its not 300 articles on one topic. Make sure that your next batch of articles are focused in on those topics.

    The point of the article writer is to get more quality content on high paying topics out there for you. There will come a time when your campaigns will be able to pay for their own article writing. This is where the downside of AC comes into play as it is much quicker to get a winning campaign at EZA and the payout will be greater. When you get a winner at EZA (at least a sale a week) you drop everything and put all your efforts into that campaign. Keep writing articles for it and don't stop. Well, I hope this helps.

    Kind regards,
    killxp

    @killxp thanks man, I appreciate your help.

    especially I appreciate your NO BULLSHIT policy. Many people say they have a 5%-20% conversion. Honestly from my experience 1% is the most realistic.

    Note: All my articles are on the same niche.

    Here is my decision:

    Submit 100 articles to ezine, 100 articles to AC(with links to my website), 100 to my own website(made it part landing page, part blog). And those who don't get $$ from AC I will submit to ezine.

    I think this will get the most revenue both short term and long term.

    What about building you own article directory? 300 unique articles plus, let's day 200 non unique articles...

    some backlink building, a little of patience, could be a good idea
