I have been writing for the online writing site Triond for several years now until I was introduced to expertscolumn by a friend, who said making money from expertscolumn is fast. But I now see that he was so wrong. In expertscolumn you get a lot of views to your articles but you get very little money in return!
In Triond, I earned good money online from my articles although the views there were not as much as the views I’m presently getting on expertscolumn. Triond pays an average of $1.50 CPM i.e. you the writer gets paid $1.50 for every thousand views that your articles generate. With Triond you can even earn more money but all in all the average is the above figure per thousand views to your article. So it therefore means that if your articles generate 10,000 views you get $15 from Triond or even more! This is the very good thing about Triond; they pay their writers extremely well. So making money with Triond is extremely easy. The only problem with Triond is that they are presently facing very low traffic on Google search.
Let us take a look at expertscolumn; writers get a lot of views here but sadly these views do not translate to money. No one knows for sure how much expertscolumn is paying per thousand views. I just noticed this shocking thing when I checked the number of views I got since my last payout and compared these views to the present amount of money in my account. Believe me I was really shocked.
Since my last payment to date I have generated 12,000 views to my articles, which have only translated to $7.76 can you believe that? Had I had these views on Triond I would have been getting somewhere in the region of $18.00. I am very shocked at the game expertscolumn is playing with writers. How can you pay such amount for over 12,000 views! This is less than half of what Triond is paying its writers for crying out loud!
I have now noticed that in as much as we get a lot of views here on expertscolumn these views translate to very very poor earnings that are extremely discouraging. The way I see it expertscolumn is paying around $0.50 to $0.65 CPM which is for every thousand views that your articles generate you get paid $0.60. That is too bad for a site like expertscolumn. Expertscolumn needs to step up and make their writers happy. Many writers are here to make money online and that is what expertscolumn should know. I for one I’m here purposely to make money from my writing and the earnings that I am presently getting for my articles is not helping at all. Writers need to be encouraged, with encouragement comes more quality articles for the site.
I have not given up hope yet on making money with expertscolumn. I will keep writing more and see how things go. If it keeps on going like this then of course I’d be forced to advice myself and send my articles elsewhere, and I guess I will not be the only one to do that. I know a lot of writers can relate with me on this one.
