I read somewhere on a forum (for the life of me I don’t remember which one), about Demand Studio’s revenue share program. In other words, in addition to writing articles for up front pay, they offer a residual earning program.
When they first introduced the option, I thought that it was the exact same payment structure as the one offered by eHow. So, I asked myself, why write through Demand Studios when I could write the article on eHow directly. After all, I don’t have to wait for an editor to review and “approve” my article.
“THE TERM FOR WHICH EACH ELIGIBLE CONTRIBUTION CAN ACCRUE REVENUE SHARE IS FIVE (5) YEARS (the “Term”), COMMENCING ON THE DATE EACH CONTRIBUTION IS FIRST ACCEPTED BY DEMAND STUDIOS, UNLESS TERMINATED EARLIER PURSUANT TO SECTION 6 OF THESE SUPPLEMENTAL TERMS.”
I guess my question is still the same…why would I want to participate in Demand Studios’ revenue share program instead of writing for eHow directly?
