Writing for Associated Content

I haven't updated this blog very frequently lately but this is mainly due to my children being on holidays. I have less time to myself as I haven't had to get up too early (Ok this is my own fault, but I also deserve a holiday!) and I have been spending more time with them; however, I am still working on my Squidoo lenses.

My latest lens is called Writing for Associated Content; I created it to help promote my Associated Content articles but it also includes excellent articles giving tips on increasing pageviews by other Associated Content producers.

The lens is not completely finished yet as there are lots more useful articles I want to include but it is worth taking a look, especially if you are familiar with the Associated Content website. If you like Writing for Associated Content, don't forget to bookmark it as I will be updating it as I find more helpful tips to help you promote your articles.

Hey there, I've been thinking about contributing some articles to Associated Content to make some extra cash, how has you experience been with that site so far?

Hi and thanks for your comment,
I really like Associated Content. Once you pass their approval process, if you can manage to write an article a day I reckon you can make a bit of money on the side (the most I have written was about 10 in a month) but it probably won't be enough to make a living from.
You need to be patient as the money won't come straightaway (I only made a few cents in the first 3 months!). If you enjoy writing it is a fun way to make money.

Hey Sophie,

Thanks for commenting on my site! Good to get some feedback. A few cents in the first 3 months huh? I thought associated content paid out a flat fee for each post and then you made additional money on the side when the article is viewed?

I've been using for my articles, and they're generating a few dollars a month, do you have any experience using them?

If you are in the US you can apply for the advance fee (not sure how this works as I am in Europe). I tried Helium but I didn't like the fact that I had to adapt my articles to their titles so I just concentrated on AC.
