Re: Throwing Articles at the Catalog

I'm far from being a great CC success story still, but I do well here, even during December when I was dealing with family emergencies and unable to write a single article. I don't know how the metrics work or why it happened this way for me, but I did not begin making a really decent income until I...

Re: Constant Content Full Time?

I was just invited to another private writer pool, so maybe January/February will be better for gauging my success :-)
Fingers crossed this pool stays profitable!

Re: Constant Content Full Time?

I agree, I am working on diversifying too, but it is such a frustrating process. I would love to find 2-3 new writing gigs this year to add to my growing collection, but ideally, I still would hope that I can make it to a place where the majority of my income comes from CC. I love the idea of writin...

Re: Customer Making Odd Requests?

It started as just here and there, but now it is like he is stalking my profile, waiting for new content to drop (to see that I'm active) and then hit me with back to back messages with comments about how it's great to se me "back at it" etc... I really wish we had an option to anonymously...

Re: Constant Content Full Time?

It was a couple of weeks before the first, but I honestly. I questioned if it could be a new editor too, because I normally have a very good dialog with whoever has had to review my work in the past and shown me it needed to be "fixed up". Either it was a system error, someone new, or some...

Re: Constant Content Full Time?

Hey Light, ironically, after I posted this I got really sick, my son got really sick and then my sister who is like, a million months pregnant started experiencing issues that made me readjust my focus to help her. I tried to maintain writing at a very quick pace, but then got hit with like 10 artic...

Customer Making Odd Requests?

Hey all, I am curious what the protocol is for customers that start contacting you directly with odd requests? There is a client that keeps directly messaging me every few days - even without any response for a couple months and asks me to answer odd, sexual questions for his website (I'm not a prud...

Re: Editing Process

YES! I am getting two-day approvals too, I didn't even know it was possible. It's like magic! lol
It's especially nice to see articles get approved quickly before payouts since we can't sell what hasn't been accepted.

Editing Process

So, I don't want to be a brown-noser, but I totally have to give a nod to our editor/editors this past week. I know there are often problems with delays in getting articles accepted (or rejected), but our editors have been super on top of it this week! I don't know who has been editing my stuff but ...

Ordering Content Direct

Hey All, I have been speaking with someone from a recent casting call that is interested in paying me through constant content to write some specific articles for her. She is not sure how to place a direct order though and I can't find any information on my end that might help her. Does anyone know ...

Re: New Web Design and Sales

I might need to up my keyword game. I haven't sold any from my catalog since it changed even though I've been submitting much more and prior to the change was selling about $100 worth per week. My approval rate is increasing and my access level has finally gone down to 2, so it seems like my results...

New Web Design and Sales

Just a quick, nosy question... I am curious how everyone feels the new design is impacting their sales or views? Personally, I feel like my views and sales have gone done. However, I am getting back in the routine of submitting daily after vacation and being sick, so my mini-hiatus could actually be...

Re: Constant Content Full Time?

Well, I've been writing for a really long time so that helps with overall speed.
But mostly, what I have recently found that helps is picking 1 topic to write multiple articles from various angles. Then I only have to research once and I can produce several quality articles in one day.

Re: Constant Content Full Time?

Lol Congrats on your sales! I played the lowering prices game for a couple of days but then went back and changed all of my content to fair pricing. I don't know where I came up with the exact number, but I don't want to be paid less than $60 an hour, so I make sure each article I post is worth that...

Re: Constant Content Full Time?

I guess I should clarify. I also write books personally that I self-publish, in addition to being a ghostwriter and writing content for private clients. Writing for private clients has frankly been a marketing and collections nightmare which has taken a toll on my personal writing. My ultimate goal ...
