    Hey everyone,

    What is the worst payout you have ever gotten and what is usually your average? I was reading about Redtide and he gets $3.50 to $4.50 but obviously he is a pro. My worst as of now has been $2.34 and I am averaging about $2.70, is that normal?

    Thanks,

    Jared

    Hi Jared,

    Actually that's a great start. The lowest they'll offer is 99 cents. If they aren't willing to pay that then they'll just decline it. My main account is now up to a clout level 9 so I'm averaging $4.75 -$5.25 for upfront offers. Stick with it mate and you'll only see higher profits the longer you've been with them.

    And of course more partner call assignments.

    Redtide - I assume since you are Clout 9 you are making well over $600 on that one account per year, do you have to pay taxes on the payouts?

    Higher payments.... Hmmm... Well, as I understand AC in a humble way of course, they are looking for hot topics, keywords that they can sell, accurate content in terms of complete style: title / keywords / sentence structure / "punch" / etc. They are there to make profit, more than anything else. So, if you have lots of "products (articles)" that's getting them pageviews and "clicks", they will offer you more. Even if you have just one article, but that is of exceptional quality, then you are Gold to them and you will get more than average payment if you are consistent. Wouldn't you do the same if you're in that position?

    I also think that considering the present situation, $3 is a good amount for any beginner. Once you have, say, 100+ quality articles, their offer will also be between $5 to $8 or even more.

    A clout 9 means Red is making them a lot of money through his quality content. Unless he has quality, he can't produce that many pageviews, would he? So stick around and get above, for example, clout 5. Begin by being above average and provide good content. AC is out there to make business profit, and you will be one of their provider. Sticking to in-demand niches will obviously get you the Partner's Calls from those niches.

    Look at the top-providers and see what they are writing on. That will give you hints on how they are making their money.

    Second, look for what AC wants and give them just that.

    Third, there are still plenty of in-demand but untouched niches that you can concentrate on. AC will obviously be grateful to you! Now, finding those in-demand but untouched niches is up to you. :)

    I have 2 accounts in AC and I should say one as rich and other one as poor. In rich account I got lowest $2.34 and highest $3.96 with an average of $3.10. In my poor account I got lowest $0.99 and highest $3.21 with an average of $2.75.

    Now with Redtide's AC guide, I believe I'll soon cross $4 bench mark and will make an average of $4 per article. Wish me all the best :biggthump

    I hope you do my friend...$3.96 is awesome and shows you're on your way to high upfront offers. Study any of your articles that are in that pay range and keep duplicating the things you did, then keep it nice and consistent. Keep promoting to build up your views and as your clout level rises, so will your upfront offers :deal:
