It is not yet clear to me what it is, what can do and how to earn via Helium marketplace but i think that it likes taking jobs from magazines and newspapers, right? Maybe price my articles, or not?

In short publishers list topics they need articles for and what price they are willing to pay. They also state any specific details such as keywords and type of writing. Writers then write articles catering to these specific articles and the publisher picks and chooses which ones they want. You can get paid anywhere between $5.00-$150.00 per article sold through the marketplace. The publisher then owns the rights to that article and is usually taken off of helium. You get the large once off payment and that's it.

The Helium marketplaces are a great place to specialize and to write about the aspects of life that you feel expert enough to tackle. Their requirements are very clearly structured, and it is a chance for anyone to get into the online publishing industry, as shown on the community forum where people have gained full time employment from selling to markets that Helium have networked with and who look for specific articles and choose from those submitted by Helium writers.

The marketplace is where publishers list specific titles they are looking for. They describe what they want in the article, and post the amount they are willing to pay. Then writers submit articles until the deadline shown, and the publisher chooses the article it thinks suits the needs of their website best. You can see what is being offered right now, and check back every week or so since new ones are posted often.

Sure glad I checked this one out! Stupid me...I only know of Helium as a gas that we fill balloons with so they stay afloat, and always inhaling a little bit so you talk like "Daffy Duck." Thnx
