This is my take on Triond.com and how to make it work for you. There are a lot of differing opinions on wether Triond is a scam or a good site and this article sums up my first hand experience of being a Triond member.
If you google triond scam you will see a fair number of forum posts stating how Triond.com is a scam and should be avoided at all costs. This view is completely wrong the site is not at all a scam it just requires effort to make it work. The site has a large number of members who have been successfully publishing work and making money for a number of years. The fact that these members have hung around is proof that the site really works.
These days everyone is looking for an instant get rich scheme, a cash machine in you PC if you like. The reality is that this does not exist and if you really want to make money online you need to put the effort in and produce something that people will read, watch or buy.
What exactly is Triond.com
Triond.com is a platform for writers, poets, artists, photographers, musicians and film makers to publish and share there work. The site allows you to earn a share of the advertising income they receive from the pages you publish. Unlike sites like Wikinut you will get a fair return for the articles published on Triond, for example 2,000 article views are worth approximately $2 on Triond but only around 3p on sites Wikinut making Triond a far more rewarding experience.
This is the same earning ratio as experts column, plus you can post your work on both triond and here on experts column, therefore allowing you to significantly increase you potential earnings. Triond require you to post on their site first then you can simply cut and paste you work to experts column a few days later and double you exposure.
In order to help increase your exposure, Triond also allows you to integrate your current facebook and twitter accounts meaning that every time you publish an article, film, picture or song a link will automatically appear on both profiles allowing all your followers access to read or view your work and even share it with their friends and followers.
On top of this there is also the option to share your work on a large number of bookmarking sites such as stumbleUpon and Delicious.
How to make Triond.com work for you
Firstly you need to ensure that you are producing regular content for the site, currently I am producing one article every 1-2 days, and the most successful members are producing 4-5 items a day. For me this is just a hobby so an article every couple of days works for me.
Take advantage of the twitter and facebook integration tools to help share your work effortlessly.
Become an active member of the site read and view other members work.
Use the site guides and comments you receive to help improve the standard of you work.
And most importantly stick with it; success does not happen over night it takes time and effort.
One last handy tip to help promote your Triond articles is to you can also use free sites like Pingler to add valuable high quality backlinks to your work, which will dramatically improve your position in search engine such as google.
