I've heard that you can make as much as $20.00 per article on Associated Content, but my highest paid article to date was $5.01, with most being in the $3.50 - $4.00 range. If you get more than $5.00 per article on AC, what sort of topics do you write about?

My offers are usually around $5 also. I think to get higher offers you have to write something that is really unique, and I am not good at thinking up stuff like that. I do a lot of research-type articles.

That is what I was wondering. I've tried to come up with what I felt was unique, but I guess it wasn't unique enough, LOL.

I have, and I gotta say...I found the way to make a whole lot of money on AC. Recently, i've made about $7 dollars after submitting my recent article about how to lessen eyestrain and make ebooks a whole lot easier to read. There's also a topic about it in "Promote Your Content" of the same thing for more information. The $7 dollars was a whole lot more that I made over my normal payments of $3 dollars thanks to my recent article.

I don't really think it is how unique you write about something but how well you write on a very popular topic that no-one has touched on as well as you. My writing payments range from $1.50 to $8.oo so far and I really haven't done too much marketing of my pieces, till recently, so I did not make as much as i could have then. To give it to Associated Content with a 'no upfront one-time' which is exclusive, request non-exclusive and earn the said first amount between $2.oo and $6.oo but then gain maximum exposure and earn bonus performance payments for as long as the article stays active, which can be for eons if you market your stuff out there correctly. sharing the light, Miss Erica Hidvegi, the Enlightenment Advisor,B.A. Psych (spclztn in Child Dvlpt & Abnrml), M.A. Transpersonal Psych Studies- Cnslng/ Author, Artist, Photographer, Entrepreneur & Freelance extraordinaire http://www.associatedcontent.com/signup.cfm?refer=1556

I think that it is really unfair and a smack in my face if they offered me $5 measley dollars for my work. Say I was a great writer? For five bucks they could turn my article in and make probably a few thousand on it. Imagine opening a magazine up and seeing the article you wrote in there. What would you do? I would personally be pissed but then again no one forced me to do so. I have no doubth they make huge profits from some peoples work. Especially the ones they offer $20 dollars for. I honestly think you would be better off calling a magazine company and asking them if they'd be interested in buying your article for a price and maybe from that you can become one their writers? never know. The sky's the limit :)and dreams can be accomplished especially if you're determined enough
