Associated Content Overview

Associated Content enables anyone to publish their content on any topic. It has categories for video, audio, and slide shows. Once content is published, Associated Content distributes that content through its website and content partners.

When you post to Associated Content, you can:
1) submit original, never published before content, request an up front payment and give Associated Content (AC) exclusive rights and ownership to the content.
2) submit original, never published before content with no up front payment. Similar to Hub Pages, you can change the content at any time.
3) publish content you’ve published elsewhere.

In addition to all 3 options, you also receive payments for every thousand page views or PPVs. This rate varies based on your Author rating and the content itself but is about $1.50 per thousand.

Articles are usually required to have at least 400 words and may include pictures from approved sources. Submitting your article does not guarantee it being published, as Associated Content exercises editorial control over content being submitted: sending work back to users for “polishing”, or rejecting submitted work for violations of the site’s terms of use and guidelines, such as promotional/advertorial content and plagiarism. In its own way, ensuring some sort of quality control.

However, in order to get paid you have to be a US Resident. If you are a US Resident and over 18 year of age, you would be paid for your work done on Associated Content. Previously, before being bought over by Yahoo!, Associated Content used to pay non US Residents by performance payments (e.g. $1.50 for every 1000 views). However, if you are not a US Resident there are no payment options available anymore. Performance Payment is sent on the Wednesday of each month. All payments can be mace via PayPal.

However, to truly start earning money you would have to build up your database of articles. So perseverance and constantly writing is the key, to not only honing your writing skills, but also earning some money.
