I have been reading a book called "Confessions of a public speaker". It was a book recommended by Derek Sivers (TED speaker). In that book the author talks about how speakers get paid. After a point the fame of the speaker decides the pay and not the expertise. The variation is 10,000USD vs 100,000USD speaker. The understanding is that the fame of the speaker brings in customers.
Here is what I do not understand about 50USD vs 250USD articles. Is the Brand value kicking in ? Is it content, style of presentation or persuasiveness?
What kind of websites look for such articles(250USD)?
