Do you want to make more money for your writing? Here are a few tips on what you need to do to make more money when writing for Associated Content. It will also help you to see what is expected on other freelance writing sites. I will admit to getting very frustrated over lack of acceptances and lack of high offers for my writing. When I first started writing for AC I was never rejected. I also got some really nice offers. I have some really high pv’s and surprisingly enough many of my highest pv’s came from articles that were not paid for.
I love to write poetry and short stories.
You don’t get paid for short stories or poetry. Most articles on opinion and humor are not accepted for upfront payment either. Ironically enough it is my short stories and humor that have made the most pv’s. I still want to be paid upfront. It takes a lot of pv’s to get paid enough money to make it worth your while to write for Associated Content.
If you go to the Community Forum and read what other writers have to say it is very helpful. Not only is it helpful but it is also entertaining. You can get great advice there and make some good friends. You will also see other writers whom you will want to read their work and follow their advice. If you read their titles and articles it wil help you to see what is accepted for upfront payment. You will see what is most wanted by the powers that be. I personally have gained a lot from Michy Devon. She is not only a very professional writer but also will give you constructive guidance and criticism but in a kind way.
You will be inspired by the topics that other writers are getting upfront payment for. If you read the successful writers work you will be more likely to write work that will be accepted for upfront payment. I wonder too if some of the more seasoned writers that have been CP’s for a long time are more likely to get upfront payment just because they have developed a large following? Crystal Sky has been immensely helpful to me and is one of the top rated producers for Associated Content. She is very kind and not at all condescending. She is an inspiration. I hope that you find someone like that for yourself. She is mine though so you can’t have her(just kidding) LOL.
Check out Michy Devon’s website called Accentuate Writers and see other places you can write for and get answers to your writing questions. Try not to get discouraged and just keep plugging away.
I also have found www.gather.com to be a very friendly site for writers and those who like to just hang out and meet like minded people. I haven’t figured out the payments there yet but know that you get payment with your hits. You earn points that you can use on vacations, CD’s, music, books and other things. As Michy says branch out and see what is out there. Don’t overwhelm yourself. Take it one day at a time and don’t give up.
