How to Sign Up for Constant Content: Introduction
Constant Content can be a great resource for freelance writers who know how to write good quality, grammatically correct articles. Constant Content authors have the opportunity to make their articles available for a large number of customers who are actively looking for extra web content. Constant Content authors get to set their own prices, and they can write on whatever they want. They also have the opportunity to fill requests by existing customers.
Signing up with Constant Content can be done quickly and painlessly. Best of all, it can be done for free, without any obligations or commitments of any kind. This hub will walk prospective writers through the sign up process.
How to Sign Up for Constant Content: The Author Registration Form
Simply click here to be taken to the Constant Content website. Once you're there, click on the button which reads, “Want to Write For Us? Click Here.” This will open up the Author Registration form. When you are here, there will be a form that you will need to fill out.
You will need to input a pen name, your real name, email address and physical address. You will also need to select a password and input your PayPal account email address.
When selecting your Constant Content pen name, you will want to pick one that sounds serious and professional. If your pen name is “boycrazyskatergrrrrl543”, prospective buyers may pass over your articles. You can, of course, feel free to simply use your real name as your pen name on Constant Content. If you have used a pen name elsewhere, you can also use that same pen name when writing for Constant Content. If you have done a fair amount of article writing previously, you may want to use the same name as appears on your other writing. If you do this, you may be able to resell usage rights to these articles.
Because Constant Content only pays through PayPal, you will need a working PayPal account. If you don't have a PayPal account already, simply go to paypal.com to set one up. The process doesn't take very long, and it's totally free.
Once you fill out this form, you will be asked whether you want to be alerted by email when one of your Constant Content articles is published. You will also be asked if you want to subscribe to the public request mailing list. If you choose to subscribe to the public request mailing list, then Constant Content will email you any time a new customer request is made. This can help you to get a jump on filling the request and make you more money. But if you prefer to keep your inbox as uncluttered as possible, you can certainly choose no.

How to Sign Up for Constant Content: The Fine Print
After this, you will be presented with a few paragraphs of legal information. You should take time to read through this. However, in short you say that you agree to follow Constant Content's rules, and that you certify that you are not plagiarizing anything. There is then a short explanation of the different rights that you can sell on Constant Content. Usage rights is the most basic, and it allows customers to use your material, but it doesn't guarantee that they will be the exclusive owners of it. Unique rights and full rights guarantee that you will not sell or use the material elsewhere.
Constant Content then sets forth that it has the right to decline articles that they feel are sub-par. They then warn that if authors have three or more article rejections, they won't be able to submit any more of their work to Constant Content. This sounds pretty intense. However, Constant Content does not actually typically ban a person as long as they are getting accepted most of the time. They will typically only ban a person if they continually send in unacceptable work. This rule seems mostly to exist in order to encourage people to actually edit and proofread their articles before submitting them.

How to Sign Up for Constant Content: The Grammar Quiz
Once the sign up form is filled out, the prospective writer will be taken to a short grammar quiz. Constant Content requires all new writers to fill out this quiz. There will be five questions which deal with different grammar rules. These questions are multiple choice, and they could deal with punctuation, spelling, prepositions, or other parts of grammar. The prospective writer will usually have to look at a sentence and determine whether it is correct or incorrect. If it is incorrect the writer will need to choose why.
The Constant Content grammar quiz serves to help weed out people who have a poor grasp of the English language. Because every Constant Content article is hand-checked by editors, these people would cause too much of a drain on the system.
Although the grammar quiz isn't typically very hard, don't just blaze through it. You'll need a score of at least four out of five to pass, and you need to pass if you want to write for Constant Content. Luckily, the grammar quiz isn't timed, so you can take the time you need to think, or you can even visit a grammar site and look up any rules that you're fuzzy on.
