To apply as a writer, register at their website. After registering, you are considered a member that may submit an article. After your first article of at least 300 words is accepted, you are considered a writer.
I consider their pay structure to be residual, because they do not pay you on acceptance for your article. Instead they pay by views:
- $5 for the first 50 views from unique visitors
- $5 for the next 500 views from unique visitors
- $10 for the next 500 views from unique visitors
Because Life123 pay is based solely on views, a writer would benefit from focusing on keywords that will get views, not necessarily high paying ads. My first article "How to Make Herbal Pills" was accepted within 24 hours.
I am happy to report that my article got 9 views on day 1, before being indexed in Google. The article, "How to Make Herbal Pills" was ranked number 1 in the Yahoo search engine. I currently write for 2 other pay-by-view websites: eXaminer and Bukisa. Examiner gives me credit for all my views, Bukisa does not. I was wondering how the Life123 system would work as far as giving credit for unique views. I am very happy and feel they are legitimate. It should not take long to reach the $20 pay out for the 300 word article. My estimate on how long it will take from my previous writing experience on other websites:
- $5 - first 50 views - 1 month
- $5 - next 500 views - 6 months
- $10 - next 500 views - 1 year
My first Life123 article made minimum payout in only 11 days! My 2nd and 3rd articles are climbing in views quickly and should reach the $5.00 payout soon. If an article reaches the first level payout of 50, then you've already made as much as you would writing at textbroker (5/300) = .01666 per word. Plus, you have the possibility of reaching second or third level payout.
If you reach the third level payout, you've received $20 for the article, which is (20/300)= .06666, or 6 cents a word. That is considered very good income in the writing world.
