Make Money Online with AssociatedContent.com
Here is another great way to make money online.
Make approximately $150/month writing 1 article per day, 5 days a week.
About a month ago I wrote and submitted an article to About.com to be a guide for their used car section. I have been a car salesman, finance manager and a used car manager so I figured I was a perfect fit for the job. Long story short, they didn’t agree. That left me with a pretty good article discussing how a CARFAX report can save you money on a used car titled “What Used Car Managers Don’t Want You to Know“.
I didn’t know what to do with the article. I have been pondering a site about car buying advice, but there are a lot of other good sites out there about the same thing. Then I thought about just posting the article here, but since the article had nothing to do with making money online, I knew you wouldn’t care. After all, good content should never go to waste.
That’s when I found AssociatedContent.com (aff). I didn’t (and still don’t) know much about the site, but they thought my article was worth $7.03. I think it also might be eligible for some sort of bonus, but I’m not sure how that works.
It took about 5 days after I originally submitted the article for them to approve it and send me an offer for $7.03. I don’t know what would have happened if I denied the offer, but I chose to accept it.
My account now shows that my article has a total of 0 page views (which isn’t accurate) and says that I’ve earned $0.00 as a “Current Bonus”. I don’t know how to get a bonus, or who is eligible. I assume it is based on the amount of page views your article generates, but it’s a little unclear to me.
I really like the format and all of the tools that AC offers, and it seems like a great way to make money online. Like I said, I’m still a little confused by the whole process, but it could be a great way to make money online if you are a good writer.
Associated Content offer a newsletter that is sent daily giving you some advice on the topics they are looking for. That is a great way to get ideas for new content.
If you were to write an article a day, 5 days a week and averaged $7 per article, you would earn approximately $150 a month. Not shabby for just 1 article per day. I’ve read that some articles are worth up to $40 each!
Some of you articles might be rejected, and some might not be worth $7, but that could be your goal, 1 approved article worth $7 a day.
From what I understand, Associated Content pays via Paypal whenever your account reaches $15, twice a month (1st and 15th).
