Demand Studios revenue 200 million. Started by Myspace guy

    Creator of myspace has set up Demand Studios. This site owns ehow. I wouldn't do it but some can write for them. You will lose rights to your articles but will be paid. They use long tail keywords. I wish Hubpages in the subject to write on lists would add long tail keywords as options to work with.

    Yeah, he gets rich and people get paid $8 for a 500 word article...

      Nope. The pay is $15 per 400-500 article for eHow. Special projects pay $20, $25 or $30 for the same length. And there are always special projects available to decent writers--like SFGate.com, YellowPages, USAToday, etc.

      They also have shorter articles that pay less, but the word count is less--like $3.00 for 30 words. They also have RevShare available that you can do, but I don't believe there's any upfront payment for them.

    Maybe I'm bitter...they turned me down twice. big_smile

    I guess $15 is okay for 500 words. But I have one article that length up at Triond and I've already earned $31 on it...

      Ah, but do you get to do that whenever you want?  I get to pay my bills by writing for demand.  I can choose a title any time I want and earn the cash.

      Some take me half an hour, others an hour.  All evens out to working at home for 15 or so bucks an hour.

        Oh my God!  Don't let the Mexican laborors find this out.

    They turned me down too and I have no idea why. I write as good as any of them. I think sometimes they just don't need any extra writers.

    Bill, don't feel bad. I've heard of many professional journalists that have been turned down, and as many people with little writing experience that made it. I suspect it's less about the resume and more about the writing sample. They want to see someone who's flexible and can write in their style.

    If you choose to try again, take a look at some of their stuff on eHow, LiveStrong, etc.

      Thanks. I've got plenty of email addies so I can always sign up again under a new email. Frankly however right now I'm too busy with my own work. But I'll keep it in mind. smile

    I used to write for eHow directly, then when they switched to strictly Demand Studio I quit. My eHow articles were grandfathered in for lifetime residuals... or until they change their terms of service that is...

    I have an extremely dim view of ehow… I dumped them back in the day when we presumably still owned the rights to our articles.

    I’ve just bumped another thread to the top of the queue that says it all, including how to get your stolen traffic back (hopefully).
