Is it at all possible for you lovely folks to launch a new sub-forum of the WSO section called Content Auctions? Or just Auctions in general for everything where people can bid and one winner gets it?
I host content auctions for brand new, never before used reports, article packs, etc., on one of my sites and sometimes it gets crazy ($400+ for a 5-pager). I would LOVE to have the extra exposure in the WF for these packs instead of doing it on my site only and I wouldn't mind sharing a cut of the sale, obviously - or paying up front for a listing fee.
For my buyers, for example, yes, they could go hire a ghostwriter, but then there's the whole back and forth instructions, wait time, etc. With readymade content, it's done - ready to go right that second.
Things as a seller I would like to see IF you ever decide to do this:
Give me the ability to set the time of auction from 1-7 days.
Give me the ability to set the increment price (I like $5 increments personally).
Give me control over minimum starting price or Buy It Now pricing.
I think this would be a GREAT idea - especially for writers who have no list yet, and even for established people. I make anywhere from $10 (if it flops) to $100+ per page (if I have a hot niche topic).
