Why become a writer

Post by constant-content »

I need a writer to write a couple paragraphs on "why become a writer for Constant Content". It will most likely replace this area:

http://www.constant-content.com/presignup/1/

Things we would like you to add include the below:

Make an Income
Get exposure
Explanation of the requests section
We find the customers (they buy your article)
We find the affiliates (they help sell your article)
We advertise to find the customers
Maybe something on Usage and Unique


If you feel this is to much we could add some to the author FAQ.

First writer to post a good piece here will get $25 added to their account.

Thanks
KatYares

Why YOU should become a writer for Constant Content

If you are a writer, you are doing more than just writing. You're looking for markets for your writing almost as much as you are putting words to paper. This is why you should sign up for Constant Content.

Not only can you find buyers for your unique and reprint articles, you also get the set the price for them. You can choose to sell them for whatever amount you want, or you can give them away. You have the power over your articles. You get the byline. You get the glory.

You can choose to sell your articles once, under a unique license meaning you sell all rights to the work or many times by setting your prices for a usage license, which means your article could be available at not one, but several websites on the net.

The best part of all, you don't have to do any advertising, you don't have to query editors, and you don't have to worry about being paid. Constant Content does all that for you. They find the buyers, they do all the advertising and when your article has sold, they pay.

It just doesn't get any easier to be a published writer than posting your content at Constant Content. By watching the requested content section (or signing up for email notification) you will know immediately what publishers are needing and what they are willing to pay.

Unlike many of the freelance writing boards, you don't have to pay a dime up front to post your hard work. Let the editors come to you. Free your time to do what you love, write.

So start writing, start posting your content. Please remember that what you submit must be your own work and not the work of others. And yes, we will know, so please don't waste both your time and ours.

So, what are you waiting for? Constant Content is good for your writing career.


With fingers crossed

Constant Content - an Employment Agency for Articles!

Post by Katie-Anne »

Constant Content is a great place for writers to put their work. It’s like a free publicity sheet for each article - a huge database of articles just looking for homes.

Many writers have work saved on their computer. It was produced for a specific purpose and now can be used for reprints, but who has time to chase reprint markets when you are already up against the clock for the next deadline? It’s one of those jobs you keep meaning to get around to ….one day! This is where Constant Content comes in.

Instead of your article sitting your on your computer, all you do is spend 5 minutes inputting the relevant information into the database at Constant Content, set the fee, and then upload the file. That’s it. Simple! Then anyone looking for an article in the area you have asked your article to be placed in will see it. If they choose to use it, then they pay to download immediately through the system and you get paid.

If you have previously unpublished articles, you can set two different fees for these. One of them to take exclusive rights to the piece, which means it will be removed from Constant Content. The exclusive license fee must therefore be one much higher than the download price and be one you can live with.

There is only one downside to Constant Content. The 50% fee they charge. This is a high percentage, but this reflects the work that Constant Content does in finding the clients to come to the site in the first place. It’s also their incentive to actually do something – if the writers don’t earn, then neither does Constant Content. From the writer’s side, if the alternative is that your articles are otherwise earning nothing, what is there to lose? Far better getting 50% of a fee you choose, than no income from the article at all. Plus, once the article has been downloaded by one client, and it wasn’t purchased on an exclusive license, it remains there ready to make money for you again. It’s a constant reprint cycle!

Although Constant Content is a relatively new enterprise, it is already attracting clients to the site, not only downloading articles, but also requesting specific ones. These requests are sent out to all of the writers who sign up to be informed of them, and then the writers can then decide if they want to writer and submit something that fits the criteria of the buyer. There’s no obligation for the client to purchase what you submit, just as with any other publication, however if you have wrote what they want, and are asking the price they hope to pay, you stand a good chance of making a sale. Otherwise, it’s another article in your portfolio at Constant Content awaiting another client.

Constant Content is doing what it can to attract good writers to the site. Some are already making money from both exclusive and regular licensed articles. They are offering a friendly and efficient service and are building up a good rapport with their writers.

Why not sign up with Constant Content – after all, what do you have to lose?

Break Into Freelance Writing-With Constant Content

Post by Arlie MacGregor »

You’ve been posting to writer boards for a while, honing your skills and enjoying the craft. You’re also the type of person people come to for advice, ideas and suggestions. Now you can make money by putting the two together.

Websites and ezines are screaming for quality content. They need writers like you to provide how-to articles, book reviews and tutorials. Constant Content was born of this need, and brings writers and webmasters together, providing them with readily available income and product.

How does Constant Content work? Writers are invited to submit their articles, on a range of different topics. They maintain control over their articles by being able to set their own prices on a two-tier system. One price is for usage, meaning the article can be uploaded (and thus paid for) multiple times. The other is unique or exclusive; meaning once it has been paid for, it will be removed from the system. Writers keep 50% of the prices that they set, Constant Content keeps 50%.

Too high of a percentage you say? How much are you making now posting for free to all those writer boards? Constant Content’s portion goes towards advertising to find you more customers, and to affiliates for the traffic they send. If you have your own personal website, you too can sign up as an affiliate, and make 5% of sales from authors who sign up under you or 20% of sales when customers click through your banners. Now your 50% has just risen to considerably more.

Constant Content brings the customers to you. There’s even a content request list so you know which topics are being asked for. Now, you don’t have to market, query, or write on spec. You can just relax, do what you love to do anyway (write) and get paid for it.

What are you waiting for?
