Associated Content is a website which pays you for any content you produce. This includes everything from articles and videos, and whatever sort of content you can think of. This blog is about saving money, more specifically, pennies. When I say pennies, I mean it. Associated content lets you write about any topic you want, and they generally pay anywhere from a dollar to five dollars for each 500 word article you write. In addition to this, you are paid $1.50 for every thousand people who view an article you wrote.
So how are you going to get rich writing for Associated Content by making one dollar at a time? You aren’t. But just because you can’t make a million dollars doesn’t mean you can’t make 100 dollars without too much effort. Here are some tips to help you get started.
Don’t write articles giving your opinion on something
Opinion articles are not eligible for upfront payment, and generally, you aren’t going to have thousands of people who want to read your opinions about anything. So if you want to write an opinion piece, you will get no upfront payment, and probably less than 25 cents per year. This is not walking around money.
Don’t write locations specific articles
Don’t write articles about nearby state parks, malls, museums or anything else location specific. Depending on what you’re writing about, the upfront payment can be quite good, even over four dollars. But because you’re writing about something location specific, the traffic to these articles is going to be next to nothing. You will earn upfront payment, and probably less than 25 cents per year. Your goal should be total revenue over the long term, not immediate upfront payment.
Niche articles tend to receive good traffic
You may not get millions of views, but if you write about something specific, and something that isn’t written about very much but people are interested in the subject, you may be able to make some good money with these articles. The tighter the niche, the less competition you will have for traffic, but the less people in general will be interested in your subject. This is a delicate balance that you must find yourself.
Write articles everyone will be interested about
Articles many people are interested in have the potential to receive great traffic. Many articles can get a million views, which actually translates to some good walking around money. The problem is that you are sure to face competition often, so you may need to try, try again. Typically, if you write content which is very similar to other content, you will receive less traffic, and less upfront payment. So the best thing you can do is include original ideas and information for viewers.
Don’t write just one article
I’ve written about ten articles for Associated Content, and many of them are for completely different subjects. Some of the articles I submitted without the request for upfront payment, just so the articles can be published sooner. The sooner your articles are published, the sooner you can receive information about how many people are viewing each type of article. This will give you an excellent bearing as to what types of articles and writing styles are bound to make you money, and which topics you should never waste your time writing about again…at least on Associated Content. So write plenty of articles to guarantee you will receive more automatic revenue.
