DailyTwoCents is a revenue sharing site that is pretty easy to get started with. Here are a few things you should know to help you get started earning when you write.
Dailytwocents.com works on a wordpress platform. For those of you who have a wordpress blog the transition will be really simple. It is just like using wordpress for your own site, however more limited to just what a contributor can do.
When you first start your article are held for a review. However, once you’ve published a few articles without problems you can be granted author status and then they will publish automatically. You can write about almost any subject, but they will restrict against subjects that are banned by Google’s Adsense (that’s how they make their money to share with us so they can’t bet banned or no profit sharing). The articles can be as short as 100 words, but no less. You can even include links in your articles.
What Can I Earn?
It’s what everyone really wants to know, right? At Dailytwocents you get paid for unique page views. They currently are paying ½ of a cent for each view. The key here is unique views, they can tell if someone is trying to game the system by viewing their own pages over and over. If you have active social networks you could share links back to your pages for more views from your friends and family.
You can also earn from your links. If you want you can actually add text links to your affiliates like Amazon as long as you keep them as text links. Since these links are yours you will earn whatever commissions you are due from your affiliates.
How much you can earn really depends on you. Anyone can write an article or two. Are you willing to do the extra work to market your article, or optimize it for search engines, or build lots of links? Building a residual income from writing articles takes some work. When you get started you should set some goals, develop a laser like focus when you are working on them and be ready to step out of your comfort zone to try some new things.
Lastly, you should also know that it’s free to join. There are so many opportunities on the web you should always be able to find a revenue sharing site that is free. If you have to pay to join, I would be wary.
