Listverse
« on: September 22, 2014, 07:25:22 PM »
Listverse is a great place to make money online. They pay $100 bucks per accepted article and you can choose to be paid in Paypal or BTC. I love that option. Supposedly their acceptance rate is only thirty percent but out of 4 I've submitted 3 have been accepted. Just make sure you email them and ask them if you have a good idea. I've also seen on forums people saying even if they don't pay you they can keep the rights to your work. This is not true. If you are not paid then your writing has rights that revert automatically back to you. It's definitely legit if you are a decent writer.

Great to hear from someone who has had a good experience with Listverse. I have read about them keeping the rights to your work. Thanks for clarifying that one out. How long did you wait for your posts to get published after they were accepted? And they will pay on the date of publication?

I have always worked along the lines of if something sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. How long have the articles been that you have written for them? And how long did they take you to write? Did you find that you had to put a lot of research into it in order to get them accepted? How would they make enough money from your article to be able to afford to pay $100 per accepted one?

This sounds like a dream job for me, because I am a good writer, and I would love to be able to have a website that I could write for that would reward me for being a good writer, but I would like it if you could give me a little bit more information first, because then I'd be able to make a better decision about whether I choose to sign up or not. I don't want to sign up and then waste a lot of time writing something that I never get paid for in the end.

Thanks for sharing this. I checked out the site, and it seems like you really have to be creative and witty to be able to come up with interesting lists and articles, so no wonder they pay you $100 per article. I will try to work on the site when I come up with an interesting list.

I've been brainstorming some ideas for Listverse, but I'm not thrilled about the fact that they own copyright upon purchase. Still. $100 is $100  ;D

WVBoarder, who is the best person to email about a list idea prior to writing? Or is it better to write a list on spec to show them you can write (or not)?

I am working on an article for Listverse, but to be honest I am concerned about putting in the work without knowing it is an acceptable idea. I think the suggestion to email them with your paper idea is a great one, and it would certainly make feel better to know that a topic is on the right track.

Even though I haven't written  for them yet, it is my understanding that they pay upon acceptance of an article rather than on publication. Can someone who has written for Listverse clarify this?

I have not heard of this site until now. I googled the site and went to visit. All the work there seems to be of the top notch writers. I personally am not that great of a writer. I don't think I'd ever make an article to the published level. I can say, though, if writing is your passion and you put alot of time in it, give this site a chance. It looks to be worth it.

I was worried this might be one that seemed too good to be true...very nice to hear that you've had a pretty positive experience with them. I'll definitely look into them a bit more =).

Thanks very much for sharing your experience with this site. I have always wanted to write and find out if I am good or not. I guess with this site I will be able to find that out.  ::) I hope ...  ;)

I tried submitting an article for ListVerse, but they declined it.  They said I could write another one.  They never did tell me why it was declined.  The article was what they wanted, but they didn't accept it.  It's weird that it was accepted somewhere else when I submitted it.  I may try to submit another article there to see if they will accept it.

There are lots of reasons why things get rejected. It's not always to do with the quality of the article. They might have already bought something on the topic from one of their established writers, for instance.

Congratulations on selling it elsewhere though. Good job!

I'm planning to submit an article to ListVerse, but it's slow going. ListVerse is a nice site. I've been reading their lists even before I learned I could submit my own. It's no wonder they pay $100 for an article. Every list there is well-researched and interesting. I mean, with so many lists already being done, it's difficult to create one that's interesting and with many sources to site!

I've heard that Listverse is legit, and that they do indeed pay $ 100 for articles they accept. That's a very popular website which means that they garner enough traffic to pay those amounts. Since 3 out of 4 of your articles got accepted, that means that you're a pretty good writer and come up with the right topics for their site. I suggest you keep going at it, and thanks for sharing with us this positive piece of news.

I'm sure they are legit. I wrote a couple articles for them and they were both rejected, but the rejection email was nice. They are looking for specific kinds of articles and I suppose mine weren't unique enough. I like reading the articles on their site because they're interesting and when I go to the site, I spend way too much time there instead of doing things I need to get done. I may try writing another article for them because I think it would be awesome to get paid $100 for one article.

There are no issues about Listverse being legit or not. They do pay. I have this feeling that to get $100, you have to put in quality work and quite an effort since they require a 1,500 word article. I would definitely submit an article to them though I suppose that this is a bit of a gamble. It would be better to be writing blogs and looking for ways to monetize them if you fear taking the risk of writing a rambling article with a 70% possibility of rejection.
