Associated Content is a place where you get paid to write and submit articles. What makes them special from other paid to write sites, is the fact that you get paid up front right away as well as get a small amount for page views.
You can make anywhere between $3 – $10 per article that you write depending on topic and quality. I usually average about $4 for each of mine.What I love about Associated Content is the fact that you can write as much as you want. There is no limit. So if you had the goal of making $40 a day, you would know that you needed to come up with and write about 10 articles a day to make it happen.
You must live in the United States to be able to write for Associated Content.
Also, when you submit an article you need to make sure it is at least 400 words and is of decent quality (good grammar, spelling, etc…). The topic can be about anything you wish as long as it is informative.
Some great suggestions for original articles are: Resturant reviews, Product reviews, Company reviews, How-to Guides, Interviews, Real Estate Buying Tips, Stock or Investing Tips, City Activity Guides, Breaking News, Concert Reviews, Tech Advise, Travel Guides, Research Papers and More… Your options are almost endless.
Keep in mind that they don’t pay for short stories, poems, or movie reviews.
Your earnings on Associated Content are only limited to your ability to think of and write new articles. You could actually turn it into a full time job if you wanted to.
The reason why I have not made more from Associated Content is because I get writer’s block very easily and have a hard time coming up with new topics to write about. Some people have a gift for writing, for them Associated Content really pays off.
The payout is about 3 times a week. You are paid for every article that has been approved at those times. Every time you get an article approved they will give you an offer of a certain dollar amount that you can choose to accept or reject.

CashCrate is by far the best program I have come across. I have found it very easy to consistently make a good amount of money every single day simply by taking part in surveys and doing free offers.
I set out on a search on the internet to see what people thought of CashCrate. I don’t want to waste any of my time on something that wasn’t proven to satisfy their members over a long period of time. I was very happy to discover that they are completley legitimate and pay their members very well.
How does it work?
Companies need consumers to try and review products, services, and websites and are willing to pay money to have them do so.
CashCrate gets paid by these advertisers for our participation and they pass 75% of that money back to us. That is how they are able to stay in business and the earnings stay sustainable.
How You Get Paid
There is a minimum pay out of $10. I cannot even begin to say how easy it is to reach payout. I made over $12 in the very first few hours after I signed-up. So the $10 payout can easily be reached in less than a day’s worth of participation.
Payments are processed on the 20th of the following month. So all of my May earnings will be sent to me by check on June 20th.
What do their checks look like?
Here is my proof of payment. This is my CashCrate check from my May 2007 earnings for $1,531.07.
You Can Succeed Without Referrals
I want to stress the fact that you can make great money on CashCrate without ever getting a single referral.
One way to do this is by taking part in the $0.80 daily survey that is always available once every 24 hours. Even just doing that and nothing else will get you a guaranteed $24 extra dollars a month.
You can also make an extra $100-$200 a month just by doing the free offers and trials available in the “complete offers” section.
I hate programs where you get pressured into signing other people up in order to make money and succeed.
However, if you like to share your success and want others to participate along side of you… CashCrate does have an awesome referral system. In fact, it is one of the best I have ever seen! CashCrate Referral Program
First of all, with CashCrate you are paid for two levels of referrals. The first level being the people that directly sign up under you. The second level is people that sign up under the people that you recruited.
So you can get paid for who ever you get to sign up and who ever they get to sign up.
As soon as you join, you start at the bronze level. This allows you to earn 20% of what your 1st level referrals earn and 10% of what your second level referrals earn.
(Don’t worry, your referrals not getting paid less. This is extra money that you get paid in addition to what they get paid.)
The rest of the referral program tiers work like this: Bronze – 0 Active Referrals – 20% First Level, 10% Second Level Silver – 50 Active Referrals – 25% First Level, 10% Second Level Gold – 150 Active Referrals – 25% First Level, 15% Second Level Platinum – 300 Active Referrals – 30% First Level, 15% Second Level Elite – 500 Active Referrals – 30% First Level, 20% Second Level
You will also get a $1.00 bonus for every active referral from the United States who completes their first offer.
I compared this referral program to the other GPT (Get Paid To) sites out there and CashCrate is the highest paying by far.
If you do decide to sign up for CashCrate, I ask that you please use my link. This will help me to reach my financial goal more quickly and get out of debt. It will also allow me to help you each step of the way on your journey to success in using CashCrate.
My goal is to reach Silver level by the end of May 2007.
Who Can Join?
Pretty much anyone can join. Even people from various other countries. Do keep in mind though, that people who are from English speaking countries will have a lot more offers and surveys available to them than those from other countries.
This is because advertisers usually want information and participation from people in the countries they sell their products in.
If you are from a non-english speaking country, there is still hope for you. There have been many successful people from other countries because they make money by getting referrals that live in english speaking countries signed up under them. So there is still a way to make CashCrate work for you if you are really interested.
I have been having a heck of a time with people stealing my CashCrate review. Please write your own.A few tips to make the most out of Cash Crate 1. Sign up with your main email address so you can recieve notifications and such, but use an alternate email address for the surveys and offers. That way you wont get junk mail in your inbox.
2. After you sign up, read the forums. They have a wealth of information and advice that will make your experience with CashCrate more successful.
