Offers going down

United States
February 20, 2008 5:54pm CST
I recently started publishing on AC. I have only a few pieces there. But already I have noticed that the offers seem to be inching down. Am I imagining this? I know some people say the offers have gone down lately, but will there ever be a time when an offer is less than $3? Am I going to have to rely on page views to make money there? Aside from writing on new, hot topics, what, specifically should I do with my articles to try to get bigger offers? Is length related to pay? Any thoughts would be appreciated. http://www.associatedcontent.com/user/66709/marcia_j.html

I noticed when I first started writing articles almost 3 years ago, they start you off with more and lower it. Or so it seemed. Although, at the time it wasn't as drastic as it is now. When I started, they did flat dollar amounts, no cents involved. That lowered payment by a few pennies each time generally when that started. Then they started that page views program and payments really dropped. But my first article got me $15, then I got $13, and after that for awhile it just kept going. Then the most I got was $50, so that kept me there. But lately I have been very disappointed with the way things are going. There already is a trick they use to get the offers under $3. If they tell you that they won't pay for it, they try to get you to publish it anyway for page views. I think that's their way of saying that they want to just start paying page views only. I for one am not writing for page views alone. I'm not sure if length is related to pay or what, but what worked there in the past doesn't seem to hold true any longer so it's hard to give any advice on what to do with their new system.

My offers have went down and I am getting a lot of rejections (and I am a level 10 member at AC). I hate giving up my articles for free. What I have starting doing is sending my rejection articles to a new site informative post. They pay a little over $3.00 plus page views. I know not much better than AC but better than free. If you want to sign up here is my referral link. Please use it. It won't hurt you and will help me. Thanks. www.informative.post.com/affiliate/86
