6 Easy Steps To Making Money On Republik City News
On top of these 6 simple steps to getting started writing and earning on Republik City News, we have a resource center. You can explore it here. It has guides on everything from getting started to writing reviews and lists
1) Before you jump into the world of revenue share content writing there are some things you should understand. First of all, while writing on Republik City News, your revenue will come from a few different sources.
You will generate most of your earnings from AdSense. Adsense pays out at around $2-$3 per 1,000 views, but it is subject to change and depends on content. On top of that, we also partner up with affiliate programs such as Amazon but the going rate is based on our Adsense revenue generated.
PLEASE NOTE: We can and will negotiate better rates for those authors who have the ability to bring in more traffic than the norm through their followings.
2) Once you’re satisfied that you want to write for Republik City News you can jump into the exciting community and get to know everyone. First, however, you’ll need to apply.
3) Okay, so you’ve applied and registered an account, you’re wondering what is next. First of all, you need to decide what you want from Republik City News. Are you going to be an occasional book reviewer who earns beer money or are you going to be a hardcore contributor who writes 3-4 highly polished articles a day and tops our earning leader board?
If you cannot decide, but still want to contribute as a writer, and be part of the community you can take your time but please keep in mind that to be eligible as a paid contributor, you must average at least 3 posts per week.
4) Once you have decided what type of writer you want to be (there is no commitment, so do what you want really), it’s time to start writing content.
You will earn advertising revenue on all lists you write, but you’ll earn a lot more if you write product-orientated lists that feature 5+ items linked from different affiliate sources. We have listed all the companies we are partnered with here, so you can pick and choose products from them for maximum earnings. For instant, you will earn $50 for every claimed business in our directory site that you have listed.
5) So you’ve done your research, you’ve spent hours writing a high-quality post… now what? Well after you click submit an editor will take a look at your post. We have a dedicated team of editors who take quality very seriously. If they think the quality is good enough they will create a stylish thumbnail and header image for your post and submit it.
If there are some minor problems with grammar and spelling then the editors will correct them and post your edited post. If your post does not meet our quality standards then it may be rejected. Feel free to contact the person who rejected your post for an explanation.
Editing can take up to a few days as we get a lot of post-submission, but it is normally a lot faster. If you get a track record of creating high-quality posts then you may be able to eventually approve your posts on your own.
6) So you’ve submitted a bunch of high-quality articles and reviews, you’ve added hundreds of items to lists…where are the earnings?
As you write lists and articles for Republik City News, you will soon realize that there is no secret bullet to earning lots of money online. If your content is quality and your list contributions are the best you will soon see your earnings picking up.
