Simple Plan to Make $29.62/Day - TODAY

Some of you may have seen this method before and some of you may have actually paid for it somewhere online.

But it is a great way for someone starting out to actually see money in their Paypal account within days, and it does not cost ANYTHING.

Ok, so here is what you do:

  1. Sign up for an account as Associated Content (associatedcontent.com) - They Pay you for Articles
  2. You will have to phone verify you account - make sure you do that, or you won't get paid.
  3. Take any article, whether it is PLR (private label rights), or one you create, does not matter. Make sure it is unique, they will not accept duplicate content.
  4. Grab this free tool to check your article for duplicate content (DupeFreePro - dupefreepro.com)
  5. Do this method 10 times, so you have 10 articles.
  6. submit all 10 articles to AC and wait, usually 24 hours
  7. They will offer you, usually at a minimum $2 for each article.
  8. Accept the offers and you will have the money in your PayPal account within 24 hours.
  9. Do this daily and make an extra $100 a week - EASILY
This is just an example using 10 articles, you can do more and make more and there are other way to really ramp this up and make $100's daily, but we will save that for another post.

Here is a screen shot after I submitted 14 articles:



The other nice thing is that because the payment is low, PayPal does not take out any fees, you keep the entire amount.

Now get out there and start making money TODAY.

A Quick How To Write Your Article Fast

Step 1: Choose a topic, let's say weight loss.

Step 2: Now choose a title, 3 ways to lose weight naturally.

Step 3: Write a quick intro (50 words)

Step 4: Summarize each way, 100 words each (300 words)

Step 5: Write a quick summary (50 words)

Total: 400 words

    1. Have you been able to do this with PLR? If so, how did that work with so many having access to it for re publishing purposes?

    2. How many words per article?

      Rewrite everything, otherwise they will not get accepted and your account will be closed if you submit duplicate content.

            I have written on just about everything.

            Here is another insider trick: when you login to AC, and go to publish, there will be a list of articles they are requesting.

            The key is not to accept the assignment, just look at the list for topic ideas. I have found that these will bring in higher dollars because they want them.

      Also, you can easily write these articles with Dragon Naturally Speaking, with some practice, you can easily turn out a 400 word article in 10 or so minutes.

      That's only an hour and half (little more) for almost 30 bucks. Not bad!

      Then, you could reinvest some of that money, buy up 100 plr articles for cheap, rewrite or outsource rewriting. If you can keep your costs under 100 bucks for all that, you will have made 200.

      Rob
      Well I say, get the monkeys typing then. sounds like some great outsourcing work there.

    Is there a specified topic you have to write on?

    • Profile picture of the author keithdougherty
      No, you can choose anything you like.

      Here is another trick. Pick a topic and localize it. AC loves this.

      Example. Topic Valentine's Day. You could do Valentine's Day in Tampa Florida. So take any topic and put a city to it, they feel this is more specific and usually offer more dollars for these types of articles.

        Hi Keith,

        I actually just got started with AC. On Monday of this week, I submitted my first two articles. They just made me an offer for both on Wednesday (yesterday). One for $2.33, the other for $2.24. I was happy to see the offers.

        You're right about it being quick money for beginners. My only problem is the length of time it took for me to write the 2 articles. I really have to work on speeding that up. Each of my articles were around 450 words. I think it took at least an hour write each article. I do have Dragon Naturally Speaking. So I'm going to definitely start using that.

        I would love to be able to make $50 - $100 a week doing this while I'm working on bigger things, because I really need money now. But how are you pumping out 10 qualilty articles a day? You're re-writing each of your articles? And how long is it taking you to write each one?

        Thanks!!

          Hey there Supergirl,

          Great to see you are having success with the articles. A trick that I use is to take a topic that I want to right on and find things in common.

          Let me give you an example.

          Let's say I am going to write an article about weight loss. I have tons of PLR about that. So I will find say 3 ways to lose weight naturally. Grab 3 different PLR articles - combine them into one article. I can usually write an article in about 15 mins or so using this method. It is very effective.

          The idea is to be able to break down your thoughts into easy manageable chunks. You can eat an elephant with one bite. Simplify the process and you will be writing articles quickly in no time.

          Hope this helps.

            Thanks Keith. That is my problem, I believe. I have a time trying to break things down into manageable chunks sometimes. And I think the other reason is because I'm really trying my best to write good quality content. So I tend to get caught up with correcting mistakes, reading and re-reading my articles to make sure I'm providing exactly what I've promised in the title, and then some.

            Oh, and I'm not using PLR. I'm researching my topis on Google to find info to re-write for my aritcles. So I think this slows me down some too.

            But hopefully, the more articles I write the shorter time it will take for me to write them.

            Thanks a bunch!

            When you submit an article to AC, they review your article and offer you a one-time payment. You can then accept that money and also be eligible to receive performance payments as more people view your article.

            $2.00 is the minimum they'll offer you, if they decide to offer an upfront payment. It's not automatic.

            In addition to any upfront payment, you can also earn performance payments for as long as the article appears on their site.

            If you grant a non-exclusive license, you are also free to re-purpose the articles (submit to other sites, use as blog posts, use in autoresponders, etc.)

            I see it as a good way for broke newbies (at least in the USA) to gain experience and seed money for other ventures. It's also a venue for adding another passive revenue stream (however small) once the article is accepted.

            And, as another poster mentioned, if you have a product that flopped, you can break it up into articles and submit them to recover some return on your time and efforts...

    This is really a great plan for those starting out and really anyone who wants some steady lower level income to fund other priorities in their business. Use PLR and learn how to rewrite it effectively but also quickly. That's the key. You could easily learn to do 10 article rewrites a day working very part-time, and not feel like your head was gonna cave in. That would be, what, about $600/month minimum. Hey, that's a car payment + a few bills! All for maybe 90 minutes a day.

    Great share!

      Grab John's awesome WSO on rewriting and this becomes a cinch. There is so much power with PLR that people don't take full advantage of.

      Keith, nice post. Definitely a good method to add a few bucks everyday. Add this with Steve Wagenheim's(not sure if I spelled that right) WSO on generating quick and easy cash with Google Trends and you just started making 1200/month in maybe 2 hours of work every day.

      It takes me maybe 2k/month to survive comfortably. Add one more method and you are making a living with IM and able to go deeper into developing your business.

      Great stuff

      To be honest I have not tired this method with AC as of yet. It is possible that it could work, but you would have to do some good spinner with entire sentences to make this work.

      This is REAL, I have not reason to lie about it. Try it and see, submit one article and you will get an offer. You can then choose to take the money or not. There is no subscription or anything, there are truly no catches here, I swear.

      That was an example on how to make $20 a day. You can submit 1 article and make around $2, the more you submit, the more you make. It is really that simple.

    I submit article occassionally to AC. I write about technical topics, like setting up a VPN, using Putty, server related topics and I make around $5 - $7 for articles that take very little time and effort. They seem to like the how to style articles. Not sure if that helps anyone, but that's been my experience.

      Thanks for the feedback. Yes you have it right that someone could use this to fund other projects or just to make some extra spending money. It is totally up to you.

      I hate to burst the bubble that has been blown way out of proportion in
      this thread but this is nowhere near as easy as the OP suggests who himself
      admits he hasn't done this.

      I started out as a freelancer writing articles for places like this and private
      contractors so I know what I am talking about.

      AC has really cracked the whip on article submissions because of all the
      crap that people send to them. As a result, the chances of them accepting
      PLR, or even some original articles, is slim to none simply because there are
      a ton of subjects they no longer accept articles on because of the
      over saturation and the garbage being sent to them.

      In all likelihood, you will need to sit down and, by hand, write a very good
      article on a subject that is still in demand. You will have to check with
      the AC site to find out what articles they want.

      Like I said, sorry to have to burst this bubble but the gravy train days of
      AC are long gone.

      In other words...proceed with caution.

        Steve,

        I value your opinion as a long standing member of the forum. But, with that said, the Paypal screen shot above it what I accomplished with rewriting PLR content. All 14 articles were submitted and accepted and I got paid.

        If you use the method I show to look for what AC wants and use the localization method, it works GREAT.

        For anyone that is starting out making their first $1 can bring a lot of momentum to continue working online. This method is not a get rich quick system, or anything like that. I was trying to give people a way to actually make money without spending money on the useless IM garbage that we are inundated with on a daily basis.

        But thank you for your input, it is always welcome.

I elected not to do that because I used Dragon Naturally Speaking and could knock out article pretty quick that way. This was a long time ago, though.

          know for a fact that it is nowhere near as easy to get articles accepted
          as it used to be.

          And all I said was, don't expect to just rewrite any crappy old PLR and
          get paid for it...that's all...not that AC doesn't pay anymore.

          In other words, proceed with caution...not don't do it.

        I started out as a freelancer writing articles for places like this and private
        contractors so I know what I am talking about.

        AC has really cracked the whip on article submissions because of all the
        crap that people send to them. As a result, the chances of them accepting
        PLR, or even some original articles, is slim to none simply because there are
        a ton of subjects they no longer accept articles on because of the
        over saturation and the garbage being sent to them.

        In all likelihood, you will need to sit down and, by hand, write a very good
        article on a subject that is still in demand. You will have to check with
        the AC site to find out what articles they want.

        Like I said, sorry to have to burst this bubble but the gravy train days of
        AC are long gone.

        In other words...proceed with caution.
        No, what Keith says he hasn't done is submit articles that were created with a spinner. That's all.

        Other than that, he's provided a workable method, proof, and answered questions to those who have asked.

        So, I'm not so sure it's HIS bubble that needs bursting.



        With all due respect of course.

        Here are some of my experiences with AC:

        Be sure to submit as "non-exclusive". That way you can use the article any way you like, even if they accept it. So, it's not that you're getting $2 to $5 per article, it's that you're getting $2 to $5 EXTRA per article. Not to mention getting your name out there, and having another place people can see samples of your work.

        Just for kicks I wrote up a quick article and submitted it. About 2 years ago I submitted 4 articles and received a total of $14.25. In my experience, longer articles make more money.

        All the best,
        Michael

    Nice post! When I first got started making money online I used this method daily. It was great and I was amazed that I could write about whatever I wanted to and they would pay me for it. I got it up to making about $75 a day until I ventured off into other things. I always thought about outsourcing but usually it cost about $2 per article and then you always have to revise it a bit. I elected not to do that because I used Dragon Naturally Speaking and could knock out article pretty quick that way. This was a long time ago, though.

      I think this is good advice for those just getting started who need money to pay for domains and hosting, etc.

      It's not a good idea now to base a "writing career" around AC because they don't pay enough over all.

      But for those with some PLR hanging out on their hard drive - and with a skill for quickly writing decent articles - it could really help.

          Ahh, Kay, you misunderstand...

          I would not WRITE an article for $2. But if I have had an article written, and for one reason or another done nothing with it, when $0 turns into $30, its reason to celebrate, right?

          Very True.

          I think what I wanted to say was:

          If you are going to be writing articles from scratch, I would write on the WF for $5. If you are re-writing or have rejected articles, $2 is a GREAT amount for them...

            I think this is a GREAT method for people who are just starting out!

            I say, start of with $2 articles and optimize with things as knowing wich articles are popular etc for the bigger buck.

            And rewrite fast!

            Cheers to you buddy!

        I'm just getting into IM, and have been writing articles for money until my websites take off, particularly at Textbroker. Yes they pay more, I would get paid $5.60 for a 400 word article at my pay rate (1.4c per word). However, you are essentially ghost writing, and you give up all rights of the article to the client.

        The compelling thing about Associated Content is that the articles are published under your name, and you are given the option of giving AC non-exclusive rights, meaning you can publish it again.

        I have also been doing article marketing with EzineArticles for backlinks, but the downside is that you don't get paid. What I was thinking is that perhaps we could submit articles to AC, then once they get approved, submit to EzineArticles, provided we use the same author name. This way you get the best of both worlds.

        Keith,

        Are you giving AC exclusive or non-exclusive rights to be paid $2 per article, and what are their policies per a resource box (self-promotional links)?

      Mubarak is right, going to the warrior to hire section and get $5 / article looks far better.

      But to unload never used articles sounds like a good idea.

      Heck, I'll easily pay $2 for non-IM, product-related articles.

            I haven't read through all the posts. So I don't know if someone has inquired about this or not.

            If the article has duplicate content on the net, does it consider the number of different publishers? Or it just gives you the number of occurrence of the article on different sites.

            It seems like an excellent tool for beginners which Keith has clearly demonstrated with the screenshot & instructions.

            I suppose it comes down to the time spent on writing the articles & what
            value you put on your time.

            If you example you spend 3 hours on the articles & produce 10, then get
            payed approximately £20, then you have been making about £6.66 p/hour,
            which is alright for newbies & also gives them a feel for the marketplace.

      That is true - they only offer upfront payments to US writers.

      For those who want to try this, here are some more tips to earn more than you otherwise would. When culling through your PLR or coming up with original work, pay attention to hot topics and good keywords just as you would when article marketing. ACs revenue is Adsense based and the more they think they can get for your work, the higher your payment offer will be.

      Hot topics will earn you more in the long run, especially evergreen topics, because they also pay by views. That few extra dollars a month helps, too.

        Great addition, I did not get into long term payments. But there is certainly good money to be made there.

        AC pays per 1,000 views each month. So you can write an article and earn on it each and every month.

        Someone asked why you might write for a site like AC rather than making more writing for clients here on the WF...

        One reason is flexibility. Sometimes when I want to do something different, but still want to be productive, I'll submit a few articles knowing full well I'm not getting full market value. I'm also not picking up a more serious commitment.

        A related reason might be that I simply want to write my take on a subject without having to create multiple articles, sales funnels, sites, blogs, whatever. If I can submit it and get a couple of dollars for organizing my thoughts on a subject, with the potential for passive income, it's good.

        One more reason - at least for me - is building good karma. Sometimes I'll write up something that calls attention to a local institution or annual event, just for cosmic brownie points...

        Great questions.

        I have submitted up to 14 articles a day on one account. I would normally stay around 10. As long as they are good quality and getting approved, they will not have a problem with it.

        As per having more than one account. Although AC does not appear to check IP addresses, I believe they are starting to look at your IP. So they could tell you are using more than one account.

        You could always use a free proxy server to post articles from a different account. Keep in mind too that you have to phone verify your account at AC as well. Cannot be the same number on different accounts.

      I tried to submit articles to AC. At first they wouldn't accept them because I didn't "cite my sources". So I tried again using what they say as "citing sources" and then they said it was too promotional. So I stopped using them right there and then. However, after reading this quote:

    As a non-US citizen, I'm curious as to how many views per month the average article gets.

    I now there are many variables to take into account, not the least of which is how well written they are, but tell us Keith (or anyone else), how many views a month do you get?

    At a rate of $1.50 per 1,000 it seems to be a tremendous waste of time and effort for people who live in "the rest of the world".

      The main objective when writing for long term profit is to optimize your article for keywords that are high in volume. Your article will rank for some highly competitive keywords. Do your research and pick keywords that will allow your article to rank and bring in more page views.

      Also, just like with any other article marketing technique, the more articles you have, the more you make. Just a numbers game.

    I wonder if you can use arbitrage to leverage the price difference in rewriting and spinning articles to be significantly under the AC payout... Food for thought. Great ideas though!

      Holly s&%^ man. There's your Porsche...

      25000 PLR X (I'll be conservative) $2.00 = ah... not quite a Porsche. You'll have to slum around in a Corvette.

      Well... (I) think that's funny!

    10 articles will take 6+ hours.

    On average AC pays $2.5 per article. That's $25 ONLY!

    Instead, you can bundle those articles and sell them as PLR for like $10. Only 10 sales and boom. Ease $100/day.

      Yea, there is a fine line of whether you should use this method as opposed to making your own PLR pack to sell.

      The advantage of this method is to get a start-up capital. If I were new and wanted to post PLR content on the Warrior Forums, I'd have to invest the War Room fee and the $20 to post a WSO.

      Submitting articles to AC can help you get the funds to later sell PLR.

      Also, if you want a near guarantee recieval of money for an article, submit to AC. Sometimes people don't want to deal with customers, and simply uploading an article and getting paid is much easier.

      It all depends on the method you use to write articles. If you do everything you said, yes it will take you longer.

      But, if you follow the method I have outlined in previous posts it is easy.

      Just in case you missed it, here it is again.

      Choose a topic, let's say weight loss.

      Now choose a title, 3 ways to lose weight naturally.

      Now I can either search the net and grab 3 ways, go through my PLR and find 3 articles with 3 different ways.

      Write a quick intro (50 words)

      Summarize each way, 100 words each (300 words)

      Write a quick summary (50 words)

      Total: 400 words
      Time: 15 mins

      Break down the article into small sections and you can write quickly.

      Hope this helps.

      So with this scenario you could write 10 articles in 2 hours 30 mins.

      Is this big money, no it is not.

      As we have said, this could be a stepping stone to bigger things. You can gain experience and exposure with AC and use it to go onto being a freelance article writer or whatever you want.

      The purpose here was to give people a way to make money on their own without all the crazy IM nonsense.

      A simple way to make money in days, that costs nothing.

    Associated Content is actually a great stepping stone if you are just starting out as a writer.

    When I first started, I knew I needed writing samples. With limited time available, I didn't want to write for free. So I began writing for
    Associated Content and used my writing as samples for private clients.

    By the way, other sites like Demand Studios pay about $15 per article. I get paid twice weekly for the articles I write for them. The editorial guidelines are pretty strict, and I believe Demand Studios is only available for U.S. writers. Some say it is tough to get accepted with them. However, shortly after beginning my freelance writing business I was accepted. I used samples I had written for Associated Content and one I had ghostwritten for a private client - with permission - and was accepted. I usually submit a few articles for them every month, and they really helped me by providing work when my schedule was uncertain recently (due to the birth of our second child).

    So Associated Content is a great way to create samples without having to write for free. The pay is too small to warrant sticking around for a while, in my opinion.

    Just a note- AC rejects some topics because of saturation. Over the years they have had so many articles on certain topics that they don't even accept anymore articles on those topics.

    As for paying, they pay as low as .99. They used to pay decent amounts-but that was years ago before so many people came submitting tons and tons of crap and spun PLR.

    To do ok with AC, you need to forget about PLR and write original, good articles on hot topics. They always have suggested topics, like the OP said, if you don't know what to write about check there. If you send some piece of crap, it will get rejected. Like Steven said they have cracked down. They have also changed since the early days because of massive growing. A well written article they would have paid $12 for in the early days will only get $2 today.

    It usually takes around 2-4 business days for them to review your article and make an offer-at least from my experience.

    It is a good stepping stone for beginners like the OP said. But don't waste your time submitting any old crap because it will not get an offer. You have to actually write something worth reading. I have noticed some people take the current hot news topic and write on that, because it will not be over-saturated since it just happened and with people searching on the topic, AC thinks the article may bring them traffic.

      Thanks, Keith, for sharing a great idea! I must say that you've got me looking at this in a different light. When I first checked out AC a few months ago, I thought there was NO WAY I would accept $2 for anything I wrote (yes, I know, a little snobby.) But what a great idea to unload unwanted articles, or, as mentioned, a good way for someone just starting out to make a quick buck.

      Thanks Keith. Interesting post. I am always looking for another income stream. I am going to write a couple articles to test the water. I also have a lot of papers that I have written for college that I am going to submit. I wrote mostly in the political science realm, so I will see how this goes.

      I see a lot of positives and negatives in this post. Although this is mostly an intro to im type of project, I try to think outside the box a little. If I have my VA write me a couple articles then I simply have to figure out what the average price paid for the articles are minus the wages of a VA. If it is profitable then it is worth doing. If not, I will try something else.

      Anyways, thanks for the post. I agree this is not for everyone, but some people don't need a whole lot. Just enough to pay hosting to get their feet off the ground in im. This is a great vehicle for that.

  • Profile picture of the author keithdougherty
    As other members have stated and here is the paragraph directly from AC:

    Who is eligible to be paid?
    You must be at least 18 years old to be paid by Associated Content. If you are also citizen or legal resident of the United States, you are eligible for both Upfront and Performance Payments. If you are not a citizen of legal resident of the United States, you are only eligible for Performance Payments due to U.S. tax regulations.

    What are you alternatives:
    You will not get paid for submitting an article. You can submit articles and receive performance payments. This means that for every 1,000 views your article receives, you will receive a payment, $1.50. if you choose this route, it is important to pick topics that can rank and get your a lot of traffic.

    Honestly, I would not use AC for just performance payments, I would do as others have suggested, rewrite your articles and sell them as niche article packs here on the warrior forum or other forums.

    I saw someone post earlier about textbroker and the fact they pay $5 + per article. I think I can swing that one. I looked at the site and they have a very wide range of topics to write about. Some of my interests and things I know a good deal about are astronomy, film (reviews maybe?), sports, history, to name just a few. With those I just pick something and off the top of my head probably spew out a few articles each day without much trouble.

    Only 3 a day breaks $100 for the week. The OP certainly has a good idea but I think, at least for ME, that would take up too much time when I could be using that time to write articles for my lead lists.

    But I thank the entire thread, I learned a few things here.

    NO plan is.

    If you want to try this plan, it may work. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

    No need to shake your finger and be negative about it.

    But to everybody else that is saying why this won't work I have one question?

      The reason they require US only is because they have to be able to track your money for tax purposes. I imagine you could just say US, but you will need US PayPal account as well. I would not really recommend this, but to each their own.

      So lets see what happens
      Yes, but make sure in PayPal you add more than one email address. Use a different email address for each AC account. If they see you using the same for 2 accounts, you will get shut down. PayPal will allow you 8 different email addresses.

    I just outsource 100 450 word articles at 3.75 each then sell them to AC for an average of 2.27.

    My wife said I was stupid and was losing $1.48 on each article.

    Show how many people don't understand business...
    I figure I was making it up in volume.

      Now if you can just get enough nickel clicks to build up the performance bonus, you can really show her...

      I'm still in favor of using this idea for filling in the cracks, re-using material, practice runs with perks, etc. Never meant to be one of those "outsource and scale" deals.

    just whipped up a few unique articles from scratch, to test it out. I have kind of a talent for writing articles on any topic in a matter of minutes.

    Just submitted 4 completely from scratch, non im or business related, they were in family category.

    So lets see what happens

    For all those outside of the US or not US citizens, you can still get paid with AC. However, you are not entitled to 'Upfront' payments. You are only entitled to 'Performance' payments. AC will pay you $45.00 for 30,000 page views of your submission (text, video, slideshow or audio).

    If you are a US citizen, you will get paid an upfront payment and performance royalities (futher down the line, if the view levels are reached).

    As promised, here is an update.

    On 2/25/10 at 4:11pm, I submitted a 482 word article, titled: "How to Have a Great Vacation Even If You Hate to Travel".

    Today 3/01/10 at 4:56--4 days and 45 minutes (96.75 hours) later--it was accepted for $2. I will now be reusing it in other ways.

    Previous articles I submitted quite some time ago average about $4 each. So, this little experiment isn't over. Next I will tinkering around to get an idea of what steps can maximize (or minimize) the amount of the up front offer.

    Definitely not a the best long-term strategy for most people, but it can certainly be worked in as a way to earn a little extra in some cases.

    All the best,

      I also decided to experiment with this method and here is what I found. I submitted an article on 2/26, and it was approved today for $2.06.

      I wrote on a topic that I found in Helium's database of open titles. My plan is to submit the article to Helium after it is approved, so that I can be paid for the article again.

      I also plan to submit the article to Constant Content, Xomba, Bukisa, and Ezinarticles.

      Constant Content allows you to set a price for publishers to buy usage rights to your article for a price you set.

      Helium pays up front depending on certain factors, and also based on article views.

      Xomba allows you to submit your adsense code and you split adsense revenue with them.

      Bukisa pays based on article views ($3+ per 1000 views)

      Ezinarticles "pays" you with two backlinks back to your websites.

      Associated Content requires "first rights", so it is necessary to publish there first. All the others allow you to submit previously published work, as long it is written by you (so you must use the same pen-name on all sites).

      For people who write a ton of articles for Ezinearticles for back-linking purposes, this may be something to try. It may be possible to actually get paid to write all those articles, while building up a huge database of articles to receive residual income from.

      Valerie,

      You are right, I did mention in one of the posts that it is a good idea to check out the submission board to see what kind of content they are looking for. You do not have to claim the assignement, just use the idea.

      Also, they love when you localize your articles. Best Restaurants in Houston, Top 3 Places for a romantic dinner in Tampa. Things like that, and they are easy to write.

      Thanks for the update.

      A lot of topics are flat out declined because they already have more than enough content on those topics. I imagine all the popular topics and plenty of not so popular. There have been so many people submit so many articles that more are getting declined.

      Best bet to get approved for upfront payment is to either take one of their call for contents, discuss recent news, or review on something new.

      However many calls for content are now for video only.

      For the guy who wanted to know how to make $100/day with AC- Are you kidding? That's nuts. #1 best selling authors couldn't make $100/day with AC. Unless you are really desperate for money now-those articles would be better on your own sites. No money? Set up a free squidoo lens. And selecting non exclusive pays less than exclusive.
      Let me see what I can do to put this together.

      Hi again,

      Michael Oksa, you mentioned using your articles in different ways. I was just wondering, what other ways could you use your articles to make money, especially if they're all covering different topics?

      I'm sure you could submit them to EzineArticles, but you'd have to make some sort of landing page or create a blog for each of your different topics. The two articles I submitted the other day were in two totally different niches.

      So could someone share other ways that these articles could be used? And would they need to be rewritten before submitting to other places?

      Thanks!

    # Thank you for your submission. Unfortunately, this content did not qualify for an Upfront Payment offer because it does not contain enough new/unique information on a topic that is widely available online to allow it to perform well in an Internet search. For more information on why this content was declined, please consult this guide to Submitting for Upfront Payment.
    # You can now publish this content immediately. Simply resubmit this content for Performance Payments only, and click the "Publish" button on the final step of the resubmission process.
    Either that topic is not seen as being profitable and/or there's already plenty of articles there on this anxiety disorder.

      Hope my post didn't come across as "negative" that wasn't my intention, just trying to be realistic so a newbie isn't surprised or disappointed if articles on saturated topics don't get accepted. It all depends on the topic. Local articles are great. Videos as well if someone can do videos.

    How much you get paid really depends on the quality of the content, and how much your content separates from other articles already published. I have around 15 articles published..and i received anywhere from $3 to $10 per article. This is a great way to make a little extra cash in your paypal account to use on other things.

          Hi all,
          I went ahead with this AC content to make money. I wrote 20 articles. The first five were accepted. Then the next ten rejected. Two were accepted today. Thy paid around 2-2.67USD.

          I got discouraged, but the good thing, all the articles are in my ezine draft so I just need to submit them to ezine articles. I have one article reviewing a store in my area, I want to see how that goes. If it goes through, I will only submit such in future.

          Thank you so much for the advice, I took action taught me to focus a s I continue to work on my blog. I made money this week...A good thing.

    although, is this another way to submit articles and link to your site, hence getting paid for your article marketing efforts????

    I signed up and wrote my first article...took me about 30 minutes...which amounts to less than minimum wage for my efforts at $2 a pop...but money is money so what the heck...

    I'm gonna give it a try for a week and see where that gets me...

    Good stuff, Keith. I made about $20 on 9 articles w/AC a few months ago, then forgot about them. I'm feeling a little stuck re: my other online endeavors right now, though, so I think getting back to something basic might be a good idea.

    As you point out, this is good for beginners or anyone who can use a few extra bucks.

      Not sure what kind of response to give you, the obvious answer would be to use your phone number. If you need a US number you can either buy a Magic Jack ($40) or get a Skype# ($2.95/mo), another option would be Google Voice (Free).

    To the person looking to make $100 a day from articles....forget about AC and just write a set of 10 good articles per day that you can sell with PLR. Charge $10 to 10 people who have exclusive use of those articles and you've made your quota. I would buy a set of well written niche articles for a buck each. Start writing!
