Make Money Today with Online Writing: A Review of Constant Content

Updated on July 25, 2011

So Many Choices

There are numerous websites where you can submit your writing. You could spend hours researching to find the best ones. Or worse, you could try to submit to a multitude of sites and not earn any money.

I'm going to tell you about one of my favorites, Constant Content. I'll tell you why I like them and give you some helpful tips on how to make them work for you.


What is Constant Content?

Constant Content is an article broker; they post your articles for website owners to view and purchase. You submit an article on any subject you choose, setting your own price. They review it and if they accept it, they place the article on their site. Once it's been purchased, they notify you.

Their review process can be lengthy, taking a week or more. I like the fact that you can continue to submit articles while they are reviewing. You can have up to six articles in review at one time. Once you've had ten articles accepted, they lift that restriction.

I also like the fact that you control what rights you want to sell and can set the price accordingly. Usage rights allows you to sell the article multiple times and usually receives the lowest price. Unique rights means you sell the article once and you can't publish it anywhere else, but your name is still listed as author. Full rights means the buyer can claim the article as their own and change any part of it. I usually only sell usage and unique rights, charging more for the unique rights.

What I like about the review process is that if the article is rejected, they give you an indication of why and allow you to resubmit. They are very particular about grammar and sentence structure. I think it helps me to improve my writing skills, which will allow me to be accepted on better paying sites.


Tips to Succeed with Constant Content

First, pick a popular topic and narrow your focus on it. Keep your article between 400 and 1000 words. Choose good keywords and use them in the title and throughout your article. Make your title interesting. Since they allow you to write a summary of your article, spend some time trying to write one that will capture the buyer's attention.

Proofread your work closely, paying attention to sentence structure, punctuation and spelling. Constant Content doesn't allow sentence fragments or first person POV. You have to write in second or third person.

Research what other articles with similar topics are priced at to know what you should charge. Start lower until you've sold a few articles and established your reputation. Popular topics tend to bring higher prices. You only get 65 percent of the price and the rest goes to Constant Content so keep that in mind when setting your prices.


Get Started

If you submit on a regular basis and write good quality articles, I believe you can make a few hundred dollars a month with Constant Content. In three weeks, I've made fifty dollars and that was with submitting one or two articles a week.

My goal for next month is to make two hundred dollars. I'll post in the comments section and let you know how I did.
