You might think that having all your writing eggs in one basket is foolish, and with this site you get to re-post all your triond stuff and get paid for it again.
For those of you, like Moses10, who has just signed up ob expertscolumn, let me congratulate you on a sensible move indeed. To join, just use this link - http://expertscolumn.com/referral/657881a4 – and follow the instructions. It really could not be easier, and the site is very user-friendly.
Once you are registered and log in, you simply click on the Write a Column tab on the right right-hand side of the home page and take it from there. The beauty of expertscolumn, I think, is that they are quite happy for you to post stuff on there that has already appeared elsewhere, as long as the author name matches – you can give them alternate titles if you wish.
The more posts you get onto your expertscolumn pages, the better your earnings can be, and they are comparable – favourably – with the amounts you earn on triond if not actually slightly better, so any writer taking the time and trouble to post on there is in a win-win situation, and may feel that – by getting double earnings, in a sense, for the written work they create, they are actually being paid something closer to what they feel their writing deserves.
I will confess that when I first joined the site I was dubious about it, but now the extra advantage of joining through the matesgate social site – join there via http://www.matesgate.biz/refs?tonyleather - is that you not only earn even MORE money ( because matesgate pay you just for being a member) but you get 1000 extra credits to your personal account there for EVERY post you submit to expertscolumn, and obviously put yourself in a position to glean even more views.
I have not been as active at matesgate as I possibly should have been lately because I have been too wrapped-up in other things, but founder Paul Williams – who also writes on triond – is a great guy who really is helpful to all matesgate members, and actively encourages them to make money there by introducing various ways of doing so. It is genuinely a democratic site that wants to include the membership in everything unlike triond.
Also bear in mind that matesgate, too, have a section specifically for the posting of content – and are equally happy to let you re-post your triond stuff as are the expertscolumn people. I know that I have, at times, complained of the poor pay at triond, but it can be well supplemented by getting yourself signed up to both these excellent alternative places to not only post your work but interact with other people and even forge new friendships.
I personally think that matesgate is superior in every way to facebook – much less cluttered and more user-friendly – and expertscolumn definitely has the edge over triond in some respects, though obviously a much smaller site. Thing is though, if you get in there now, at the ground-floor stage, you will be there to reap the benefits as it grows, which it seems certain to do over time. Just thought for once I would contribute a more hopeful piece on writing and the web, and I hope you find these tips useful.
