Announcing October Special
Our August Special was a true success. Many of you took the opportunity to write more and earn more. Many of you also expressed interest in further specials, and some even suggested making this compensation methoda core part of Triond.
Well, we been listening. We not permanently integrating it yet, but we like to announce the October Special! This time, we making things a little more challenging and the compensation, a little more compensating.
So here’s the new deal: Publish at least 10 articles during October and you will automatically receive a 20% increase in revenues! The only limitation is that articles published on Authspot, Relijournal, Picable, Kleep and Loudio will be excluded. ALL other sites are eligible.
Please note that you will NOT see the additional revenues accumulating during the month of October the amount will be calculated at the end of the month and will then be added to your payment for October. Please also note that this 20% increase will be an increase of Triond earnings only and will not include AdSense earnings, as we have no control over these earnings.
Oh, and one last thing. Qualify for the October Special, and you get this cool badge:
Why don you make it permanent? But if you set a limit of say 10 articles per month every month people will stop publishing after 10 articles per month and save the rest to publish for the next month. The best thing is to layer the bonus in such a way that the users who write 5 articles or more will get 10% bonus, 10 articles or more will get 20% bonus 20 articles will get 30% bonus etc. Also, it
cheap Michael Kors handbags will be a good idea to distribute bonus per number of views rather than just number of articles. Ie, a person with 10 articles and 1000 views for those articles will get 25% compared to 20%. Afterall, its views which put cash into your pocket, not just tens of thousands of articles with zero views.
They be pretty silly to take this approach, as the 20% bonus is on ALL articles, not just the first 10, so by saving the articles they written to publish at a later date, they basically be losing a whole month income where they could have been up, running and earning.
I do, however, agree with your suggestion for a tiered approach; which I suggested myself in the August Special thread.
There no need for the bonuses to be so high, as it would even out if it were implemented every month, but even
cheap michael kors 5% bonus would make a difference to all of our incomes. I plan to publish as much as I can during the month of October in order to qualify for the bonus and to reap as many benefits from it as I can. I see your point. However I am doubtful that they will be losing a whole month’s income as you mentioned (unless they decide to publish all the article on the 1st of the month )
But if there is bonus offered every month, I would personally follow hold and publish approach because I have very limited time to write. If I could only write 14 articles this month, then I will publish only 10 articles for this month and keep the rest of 4 articles for next month. In this case I will have to write only 6 more articles for qualifying for next months bonus. Why? because bonus
wholesale Michael Kors handbags outlet is sure shot thing. Success of an article is not guaranteed. There is no guarantee that the extra 4 articles which I publish this month will fetch me more money than the bonus they are offering next month. Also I will get 4 12 hours freed up for next month which I can very well put to good use. The above logic is not applicable to people who have lots of time to write and who usually write 30 40 articles per month.
I totally agree with you on the tiered bonus approach. But in case of tiered bonus approach, there is extra bonus if you publish more. That is why I personally feel that Triond should go for that tiered bonus approach.
Also I am not suggesting to give bonus only based on views. My suggestion was if a user gets more views, it is evident that it is either due to his marketing skills or superior writing skills. Just a thought. Users have the power to delete unwanted comments. Just because they gave their website URL in the Website field does not make it spam. I think the spam filter which Triond has is highly flawed. I had first hand experience with this and I have talked to you in the past with all the details. The funniest thing is that when I gave a webupon URL, the comment was marked as spam. It is like Triond yelling out loud mass produce spam . How would you like that?
You will never stop asking for fixes.
When the hot list was first made, everyone liked. Once few found themselves consistently getting there and others couldn now they start asking for a fix.
Michael Kors discounts us say Triond changes it again to some other way of getting the list. Then what?? You will again fail because there are hundreds of Triond users in the line ahead of you trying to get on the list if you just do one small mistakes. Then you will again ask for another change.
Now I don think Triond will keep fixing their hot content list algorithms everytime you fail to get there because some smart users learned the tricks.
The criteria for the hot content changed a while back as well as the criteria for the hot users list.
The hot content list at the moment seems to reflect the popular articles per sub site of Triond (1 each) with the exception of Authspot it would seem.
As for the Hot Users list, it changed about just over a year ago now. To me it doesn seem to be a list.
I wrote something about it on Triond
cheap Michael Kors back then (hope they don mind the link)That was just my take on it then.
The variable earnings are crappy. May be you and I are the only ones facing this problem. It appears everybody else is happy. But that is the price we are supposedly paying for the freedom of topics.
Someone wrote an article on writinghood about the earning rate vs. number of views. It is dynamic. I even appreciated and commented but lost track of the article. Now I notice that everywhere.
The crux of the matter is that the more views you get in a short period of time the lesser earning rate you get. Earnings rate also varies depending on the topics being commercial oriented or just entertainment oriented. I am subscribing to this view of
cheap michael kors Shahar, after thinking about it for a while and studying how Google also displays the type of ads on various topics. There are many articles on the internet talking about variable pay per click prices depending on topics. Some are too high and some are too low. After studying Google ads (and also getting some answers from Shahar), I am convinced it is the new advertiser adMarketplace that is causing all the problems related to low earnings and not Triond itself.
If the bonus affects our overall earnings for the month that is a bad thing. But we have a month to wait and see. We only had one bonus and only three months since advertisers changed. Triond too must have had tough
cheap Michael Kors time changing their algorithms to adopt to the new advertiser model. So taking conclusions from this will be inaccurate, although
wholesale Michael Kors handbags outlet it felt bad during these times. Even many users felt the low earnings problem. But we need to learn our lesson from it and optimize the time effort, activities spent on our writing on different topics.
I feel it is rather better to live with the variable earning rate model than to get frustrated from it. It is ultimately closer to reality. We just need to learn another step to improve our success rate. After that life becomes easy at Triond!Articles Connexes：
