Make Money with Associated Content

November 24th, 2008 posted by · 2 Comments

I came across a new site recently that pays you for writing articles. Usually the reason one would write an article would be to get link love from the footnote of their writings to boost their search engine ranking, but this time it’s a bit different.

Associated Content is a site that allows you to submit an article on any topic (400 words or more), or choose from a pre-selected list of items. Each article you submit gets you compensated between $4 and $20 per submission. If you’re an avid writer with a lot to say, this could work out nicely for you.

Upon getting your articles approved (about two business days for the first 3 submissions), you get paid accordingly due to the subject matter of your article. After you have become a trusted writer in the Associated Content community, you no longer have to wait for approval and your articles are posted immediately. It’s not hard to spit out 10 articles per hour if you’re passionate on a topic. If you only get paid the minimum for each article, that’s $40 per hour!

How and when do I get paid?

Unlike affiliate networks, Associated Content does not make you wait until the end of the month, or 60 days later to pay you. You get paid every Monday, Wednesday and Friday via PayPal. Pretty cool, huh? You could write articles all week and have plenty of cash by the weekend!

I’ve been churning out articles ever since I learned about their service. This is great for college students, stay-at-home moms, etc.


  1. Your content must be original, so don’t think you can go to EzineArticles and copy and paste, because they won’t accept it.
  2. Generally, the longer your article, the more you get paid. Don’t only try to write for the bare minimum amount of 400 words, always try to go longer.
  3. When you register, make sure to put you’re in the U.S. This will qualify you for upfront payments on your articles, which means you get paid sooner.
  4. Always proofread your article first. Associated Content is very picky when it comes to spelling and grammar. Having your article rejected because you forgot to proof read will only slow you down in getting your article published and receiving payment.
  5. $$$

    How do you get $4-$20 per article? I’ve written a few articles there and the pay was based on article views. I only got pennies per article. Hardy worth my time.

    Always select ‘upfront payments’ and make sure your article is ‘exclusive’. That will get you higher payments per article.
