How would you label sites such as Triond, Bukisa and Helium etc?

November 15, 2009 11:39am CST
We commonly refer to sites such as neobux, quickrewards etc as paid-to-click (ptc) sites, paid-to-posts like mylot and get-paid-to sites like treasure trooper. However i don't know how to refer to sites such as triond and bukisa wherein you upload articles/photos/video/audio files and generate revenue from them. The only thing that sounds ok to me would be paid-to-write, but i don't like that since you also get paid for other types of media uploads as well. Any suggestions?

Hi NatashaBird, I think in Triond there is nothing like referrals, Since I'm not working on that, But in Bukisa you can send invitations to your friends email, Also there are banners available to promote, Hope that helps, Happy mylotting...!

To me, Helium is 'writer's home.' Yes, you get paid for content. but you get so much more from the site as well. I always learn something when I log onto Helium, and there are the channel stewards and writing mentors there to help when you need it. I earn a nice monthly residual income from my Helium articles, but I get so much more than money from the time I spend there.

First dear your question is not clear but if you are asking that these are legit or not or how does it work so I can tell you that these sites like triond,bukisa are legit but i dont like to work on them because we only get paid if our articles are generating revenue and they can not accept your all articles so it is based on aprooval so toatal time waste according to me

no, i meant what should we refer to them as. Like, what would we call them collectively. I use them a lot and get a fair bit of cash from them each month. i have only had an article rejected once on triond for poor grammar/spelling which i corrected and it got accepted.

How about the term "Paid-to-share-knowledge" (ptsk)?

I never tried Bukisa and Helium. I prefer triond, because I already post an articles into this site and earn some. Even if I know this will not make me good cash...I still hope that someday I can accumulate some

I categorize them as paid-to-submit sites, or user-submitted-content.
