If you write for Associated Content, or if you are thinking about writing for Associated Content, you may find yourself stumped every now and then as to what to write about. I write about anything and everything. And I’m always surprised as to which articles end up earning the most money.
I will list my Top 10 highest paying articles for you so you can check them out. Maybe seeing some of my money makers will help you get some new ideas for articles. And be sure you subscribe to my articles so you can always see what new ideas I have!
Highest Paying Article #1 – 8 Printable Mazes – Difficult and Nearly Impossible Level: This article about the difficult mazes was a big surprise and a real gem. I only got $2.01 as an upfront payment for it, but in just a couple days it received over 13,000 views. And the views keep climbing daily. At the time I write this, I’ve received over 15,200 views on just that article and it’s only about six weeks old. So far, the article has earned nearly $30 including the upfront payment.
Highest Paying Article #2 – How to Apply Makeup for the Workplace: This article also received an upfront payment and it has the second highest views. But it is over a year old, so it took some time to earn.
Highest Paying Article #3 – Easy Valentine’s Day Crafts for Kids: This article was denied upfront payment, probably because there are so many articles out there like it already. So I published it as display only and I watched it jump to the top three as my highest ever earners. So if you are denied upfront payment, just publish it as display only and watch the money come in!
Highest Paying Article #4 – Naked Halloween Costumes for Women: I published this article as display only because I had already published it on eHow. I figured what the heck. And it quickly jumped to the top of my long list of articles as one of the highest earners.
Highest Paying Article #5 – What Has Ryan Seacrest Been Drinking? He’s Acting Mighty Odd (if link does not work click here). Okay, I will admit that I was experimenting with this article. And my experiment paid off. It’s almost embarrassing to even point out this article. But oh, wait! I’m here to earn money. So I’m not too embarrassed.
Highest Paying Article #6 – How to Make Extra Strong Plaster of Paris for Casting: I clearly remember not even wanting to publish this article. I was brain dead and could not come up with any new craft ideas. So I went with a plaster of Paris article. To my surprise, AC paid me $4.89 upfront and it quickly turned into a good earning article for me.
Highest Paying Article #7 – Free Printable Christmas Place Cards: I had a Thanksgiving place card article that did really well (it’s number 8) so I thought I’d try a Christmas place card article, and it did even better than the Thanksgiving one! And it got a nice upfront payment too!
Highest Paying Article #8 – Free Printable Thanksgiving Place Cards: I think this was my first place card article. I never knew how many people would look at place card articles. I try to do them for every holiday.
Highest Paying Article #9 – Tips to Getting More Money when You Sell a Used Car!: This article didn’t do much until I networked it a bit. Then it took off! I didn’t ask for upfront payment because I had published it elsewhere before.
Highest Paying Article #10 – How to Make an Upside Down Topsy Turvey Tomato Planter for FREE!: This article does really well in the summer. I just wish I could change the title (I got an upfront payment so I can’t change it) to Topsy Turvy because that’s the correct way to spell it. Oh well, it is still doing great with the “e” in Turvey!
