Associated Content writers have recently seen some very big changes to the website. Associated Content is now named Yahoo Contributor Network and the changes are huge. All the content that was published on Associated Content is still there and writers still earn from those published works, but they now have more opportunity than ever before. If you just enjoy reading the content that was on Associated Content, you will be glad to know that you will still get that same information flowing in but you will also see great benefits to the changes.
Advantages of the changes in Associated Content for writers:
Greater Opportunity- There is far more opportunity now that Associated Content is Yahoo Contributor Network. There are higher paying assignments available because the offers don’t always stay on the Associated Content site. There are several venues which are drawing from contributors such as Yahoo Movies, Yahoo News and OMG!, just to name a few. Those articles may or may not be published on the Associated Content site, but they have a greater chance of getting accepted because there are so many new places that the article can be placed. Upfront payments can be very high for these type of assignments.
Exposure- Writers are getting more exposure than ever by writing in Yahoo Contributor Network. There is a greater variety of areas that your work will be published if it is something that the other Yahoo sites need. That means that your work will be seen far more often and you will have a stronger portfolio of work. This type of exposure can bring your writing career to an entirely new level.
Earnings- Writers will earn more money through Yahoo Contributor Network than they ever did with Associated Content. Associated Content did pay well in many areas, but with Yahoo, the ability to make more money has greatly risen. The ability to earn double what you were making at Associated content is highly possible since there are so many great opportunities.
Strength in Numbers- There is strength in numbers just as your mother always said. The more places your work is displayed, the bigger chances your work has of being found. The internet is a very competitive place. Finding the right places to add your work as a writer is crucial to success. Yahoo has been around for many years and it will be around for a very long time to come. Since Yahoo already has a large audience, you will benefit from it as a writer because it gets your work out there because of the number of people they have on their network.
These are just some of the ways in which Yahoo Contributor Network will benefit writers over the original Associated Content site. There are many things that have remained the same, thus far, on the site, but enough has changed that will aid the contributors both financially and with building a solid portfolio. If you haven’t checked out the new site, do so today.
