I have just started a site with this plan in mind and was wondering if this is plausible or if going this route could lead to disaster. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! First off is to hire content writers to produce the first 100 posts onto the site of 500 words or so, and then optimize this with both Adsense and Amazon Affiliates. Next, I will go in search of content writers that will work for performance pay bases on adsense and amazon earnings (similar to FullofKnowledge and Expertspages, or even Yahoo! Voices for that matter) I would probably offer around 90% to the writer of overall earnings. My main purpose is to use these writers to drive traffic to my site. I will look for writers who are very active in promoting their work. As my writers are creating the content I will then start sprinkling in Amazon reviews on the sidebar for higher ticket items. So technically, I would be making 10% off of the writers work, all Adsense and Affiliate earnings from my initial 100 articles(minus the initial cost), and then all Amazon earnings from my personal reviews. My question is would this work? And what problems would you see arising? Thanks for input!
