Re: Returning After a Few Years - Are Sales Numbers the Same

I briefly reviewed hiredgun and beconra*'s article stats, and it looks like if you want to get a 60%ish sale rate, you'll need to price at around $0.10 - $0.13.

not sure if that's still true presently.

Re: Sold Another Article After so Many Years. .

Ooft, I don't think I could do four articles a day! I'm at 35% as well. I keep hoping that 70% I read about when I signed on will magically happen LOL. Ya, I think iz possible if u diversify your niches. Like, my SEO articles sold, and yet I had like only 5 articles written, compared with my 70+ he...

Re: Sold Another Article After so Many Years. .

I think that's what happened to me! I posted 5 articles years ago and then just left them, since it all sounded too easy. Sold one or two of them for decent money a year or two later and was sold on actually making an effort with CC. Go for it! Yeah it's really awesome when it happens! So, I concen...

Hai Everyone! Wow, I hadn't written for CC in legit years.. but one of my articles just sold for, I think $0.10 per word. I belieb now in da statz! All articles sell at that certain percentage, no matter what price! I guess that's why some people do $0.20 per word. I feel so FOMO (giddy) now to writ...

Re: SEO Houston Pros Steals Content

I believe you can report their content for plagiarism, and that way they'll get penalties. Report to Google plagiarism. They're quick about that shiz

Re: Stolen Content

So I guess if we submit 1000 articles to CC, then it all gets stolen..... well you know.

I see HiredGun's posts, and that's not like him. I hope he's okay. I hope they only stole 1 article and not like..... the catalog.

I'm also too afraid to google my articles... I don't want to cri :(

Re: Constant Content Full Time?

Here's my 2 cents too! From the other thread: I'm viewing CC as some kind of savings account. You deposit articles, then you'll see the "interest" profit months or years later. CC can be full-time , if you've already submitted tons of articles and you're living off of the old articles sell...

Re: Has CC become super busy lately? :D

Highly unpredictabe for me too. I can go days with no sales, start to get a bit worried, and then get an intense flurry to bring things back to normal. There's just no telling. And yesterday I got what has to be a record for me - a catalog sale within four minutes of editor approval... I could get ...

Re: Has CC become super busy lately? :D

Someone mentioned they did well last month. I'm sure it depends on category and season. Is $.12/word a lot? I'm not sure if you mean it's too low or high. lol LMAO lysis. Do you charge a lot more? For me it's huge because I used to be too scared to go above $0.13/word. Back then I had the mindset t...

Re: Rejection for using him or her - his and hers

I wish they would tell us when the rules suddenly change. For example, I've written numerous article where I use the word form of a number in the title (i.e, 'six')… But now the editor suddenly says I'm supposed to use '6' instead. It's hard to tell in situations like these if it's just one editor ...

Hey kthorpe. How did it go? Did writing lots of 500-word articles get you a full time income by now?

Re: Constant Content Full Time?

wow ur faster than me. it takes me 20 mins to do a 250-word one. how u do a 500-word one in 20 mins is just... amazing idk. If I could write a 500-word article in 20 mins I would probably charge $30-40, just because that thread started by Constant said that $30 articles sell. But yeah, I usually cha...
