Which is the best Paid-to-Write site?
July 28, 2008 5:09pm CST
I've been thinking of joining one of these sites for a while now, still haven't got round to it, but I've written a few things. I just don't know where to post them as there seem to be lots of similar sites out there. The ones that are talked about most are Associated Content, Helium and Triond. Are you allowed to submit the same articles to all three? Do they all pay in a similar way? Is there are difference in how much they pay each time a person looks at your article? If so, which one has the highest rate? I'm asking particularly about the earnings from each viewing as I'm not in America, and I believe that this disqualifies me from being paid up-front for getting an article published on AC. I read that somewhere on here. Is that true? Lots of questions I know . If you can answer at least one of them, and are willing I'd love to hear from you!

Hey liquorice, I write for Associated Content. I usually get paid up front for articles and also for page views. If they don't pay for an article they will still allow you to get paid for page views. I've never heard anything great about Helium and Triond, well, I'm not too familar. I don't want to steer you away from that site. I like AC because they have calls for content, if you have an interest about one of the topics they are looking for info on, you can get paid for it. I'm building a library of articles. Here is my page if you want to check it out. http://www.associatedcontent.com/user/42897/jeff_rogers.html If you join AC you'll find about 40 people here on myLot who write for them. We all help each other out with page views and sunnflr has a blog and she'll add your AC link to get more page views. Good luck with your decision. Hope I helped you.

Hi gitfiddleplayer, thanks for all the info. I can't get upfront payments from AC as i'm not from the US, but I'd still be interested in getting page views. Yes, Helium and Triond sound pretty similar, and I can't see any reason not to join all three, and submit any articles to all of them... I like the sound of the calls for content. I'll have a look at the articles you wrote, and those written by other people who have responded to this discussion. It'll be interesting to see what kind of articles you can write, and how long they should be etc... That's really nice to know about sunnflr's blog. I'll keep you and her informed when I join and submit some articles. Yes, you did help. Happy writing!

I have signed up on Triond and YouSayToo. But, haven't started writing on them yet. In the mean time, I have been keeping very busy with "Review Stream". And, I am making a regular earning from that. They will pay wherever you are located. You do not have to based in the United States. I am very happy working with "Review Stream". You may want to take a look at it too. You can write brief reviews on a variety of topics, things that come across in your day to day life. Sorry, I couldn't answer the questions in your posting. But, knowing that you like to write, I just wanted to pass on to you another option. Might be good for you. Have a nice day !

I haven't heard of YouSayToo, I'll have to have a look at that one, thanks. Thanks for telling me about Reviewstream, actually I already write there! I really like writing for them, and I'm close to payout (although it's taken several months!) Thanks a lot for your answer, and happy reviewing!

I write for Reviewstream too. You'll find that if you submit close to the weekend it could take longer than the 72 hours turnaround as they are closed over the weekend. (So it could take up to five days). I've seen people mention these other writing sites on myLot, and I've started to write some articles, but haven't got around to joining any of them yet! They sound quite good though if you like writing.
