Constant Content Question

United States
November 30, 2007 11:59am CST
Here's a question about it that I was wondering. Has anybody ever been paid by them and how it work for you guys? Is it a good service? I've considered this as well for a possible writing gig and see if it will make some money as well. Whie I haven't fully decided on going for it or not, I just wanted some feedback from people here before considering it based upon reviews. Does it take a while for you guys to get any offers? I just wanted to try to expand on my writing options. While I personally admit I tend to write some sports material especially with stuff regarding the NFL or MLB material. Mostly I tend to write opinion material. What do you suppose they look for exactly as far as takers go on that? Just wondered on that?

I joined Constant Content about a month ago to check it out. Yesterday I submitted a few articles. One was on the Liger (a lion tiger hybrid) which was automatically rejected for spelling errors! The word liger isn't in the dictionary! Others came back rejected for "improper use of commas" and "over abundance of key words". I am not claiming to be the greatest writer in the world, but "what"? As for getting paid, I checked them out really well and haven't heard anything negative. However, when looking at peoples profiles, there doesn't seem to be a lot of sales going on. One lady had 28, but she has 380 articles uploaded! Let us know if you give it a go and find it works for you. Me, I am too busy to worry about improper use of commas! Have you tried Associated Content? I started using them last week and so far so good!

I joined sometime back before the Summer began. I made some money but sometimes I get hit with rejections and also lately just haven't found an itch. I'll try Constant Content as well. Just trying to explore my options on writing as well. I'll let you know if that works out. I got a lot of published material on Associated Content.

The only problem with Associated Content is that if you're not from the states you don't get paid. I looked into it when I read about it here, but it wouldn't work for me since I am in canada.

I have been submitting to CC for almost a year and have done very well. I highly recommend them. Many of my articles sold right away, almost as soon as they were listed, some sold after being listed for several weeks, and some haven't sold yet. But for the most part, my sales have been good. Sometimes you have to wait for the right customer to come along! CC is very particular about proper spelling,grammar, and punctuation. There is a section of requested content that customers are looking for, and it helps to submit articles you know people are looking for! I really couldn't say how well opinion pieces sell but there may be customers for that, too. I would suggest you submit a few and see how it goes! Won't cost you anything but your time.

Thanks for the tip. I'll consider this and hopefully it'll work out. I'll probably post an update as to what happens once I go for it. Hopefully it works out but we'll see what happens. I'll try a few opinion pieces and see what happens.

If you can't write at a professional level (correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation, then you're wasting your time submitting to CC. You also need to spend time on the site, reading the forums, and paying attention to what is selling. Opinion pieces are probably the least likely to sell.
