Making Money Online

Constant ContentEver the e-entrepreneur, I’m always looking for new was to make some extra cash on the web. The two newest endeavors that I’ve decided to embark on are Constant-Content and Pay-Per-Post. These two sites alone seem like great ways to earn some solid cash for things I do everyday anyway. Read on for a brief explanation of each of these companies.

Constant Content is quite unique; Authors write articles about anything, of any length, and anybody can buy them for a price set by the author. It’s a great way to get unique, quality content for your site/blog/etc. for a relatively cheap price. The editors of CC read, in its entirety, every article to ensure grammatical and contextual correctness. I submitted my first article yesterday and had it accepted today, so they have a pretty good turn around as well. There will be an update to this post if I actually sell it. You can submit full articles, short blog entries, photography, illustrations, and even videos for purchase. The author gets 65% of the selling price, so at $20, I’ll net $13 for my article upon selling it, assuming I do. If you don’t mind writing you should definitely consider becoming an author on this site for some extra cash. It’s just too easy to pass up! (I’m not getting paid for this plug I swear).

Pay-Per-Post is a company that will probably interest my readers (a.k.a. you) more because I believe most of them are bloggers themselves. While PPP has fairly strict requirements of blogs that qualify to post, you can make a good deal of cash from what I’ve seen by just blogging about the posted topics on the PPP site. I haven’t met the requirements with this blog yet so I’m not currently a PPP affiliate, but I’m working on meeting them so hopefully I’ll be making the big bucks soon :0 Good luck!

Network Solutions… WTF

Network Solutions sucks.I have been victimized by Network Solutions! Yesterday I went to purchase travislaine.com from them- and ran into a problem. The price. NetSol is charging $34.99 for a years registration of a domain, compared to $9.99 that seems to be the standard rate from others such as the infinitely better GoDaddy. Anyway, I chose Network Solutions because I already have a hosting package for some sites that I developed and figured I would just host my site on the same package. When I saw the price I decided I would just go buy the domain from GoDaddy and transfer it for whatever that fee might be (usually between $2 and $6). I get to GoDaddy only to find out that the domain travislaine.com is not available and is registered to NetSol. I’m now a little pissed because NetSol snatched my domain just because I searched for it on their site. Today as I’m marauding the mousepad on Digg I come across this article, explaining that Network Solutions has implemented a four-day period where they hold any domain that is searched for on their site. After the four days they ‘release’ it, although now that it is on record domain squatters will snatch it within seconds of it being released, giving you no chance of getting your domain without paying a hefty sum of cash. Network Solutions should really reconsider this policy. You can test this for yourself using a random domain like ihatenetworksolutionswithapassion.com.
