associated content

what is associated content (AC)?
it's the people's media company, that's what!


Check out my published content!

direct from the AC website, this is what the company touts itself as:

"associated content is the people's media company, the ultimate destination site for both the inquisitive public and content producers from around the world. associated content curates and publishes a robust, ever-expanding collection of engaging, insightful, original multimedia content on the web, connecting information seekers with the knowledge they want and the widest range of diverse content producers."


AND YES.... THEY PAY
AC will offer writers USD3—USD20 for accepted content. a content manager will make an offer on submitted content (or, sometimes reject it) and the writer can accept or deny the bid. if accepted, the content will show up within a few days. and, AC pays its content producers three times per week!

WHAT IS AC LOOKING FOR?
really, anything that is 1) original and 2) that will garner page views. with AC offering dozens and dozens of categories and subcatergories, there is something for everyone— from acne remedies to zookeeper duties!

in addition to written content, AC also pays for videos.

WHAT DOESN'T AC PAY FOR?
AC does not offer payment for everything, such as poetry or prose; however, with a new page view bonus those types of submissions can still eventually earn!

OKAY THEN... SO WHAT IS A PAGE VIEW BONUS?
very much to the delight of its loyal content producers, in march AC launched a performance bonus program. through this program, users can earn USD1.00 per thousand page views, or in web terminology, CPM (this does not mean page views have to meet 1000 views; 100 views will earn USD.10 and so on....).


some top producers have earned over USD300 in page view bonus dollars. so, users who are not exactly thrilled with an offer can bet that if the article does draw traffic, residual income from that piece is sure to come.

so what are you waiting for people, let's join AC now!
