How To Create Blog Content – Buy It From ArticleMe

Content is a blog’s lifeblood. Without it, the blog goes stale and eventually dies a slow and painful death. Keeping the content flowing on a consistence basises the one of the biggest challenges a blogger faces. Most bloggers produce their own content. Some have in-house writers and some will use freelancers. In-house writers and freelancers can be very expensive. An alternative is to use PLR articles but they’re not unique and their quality leaves a lot to be desired. Now there is a third option:

What Is ArticleMe?

ArticleMe is a marketplace to buy and sell professional written content for your blog, website, or publication. ArticleMe provides a secure environment where buyers can inspect the content, check the quality and insure that it is unique while securing payment for the service provided. ArticleMe is the creation of Levi Thornton, founder of the popular social networking site, as well as and offers the following benefits to blogger looking for content:

  • Plagiarism check – Content submitted is automatically checked to ensure its uniqueness or previous uses. This ensures against the threat of copyright infringement.
  • Review prior to purchase – Buyers may preview between 20 and 40 percent of the article to ensure quality and writing style.
  • Content request – Buyers with specific needs may request such content in the format of their choice.

Publishers can use ArticleMe to find unique contents to buy for use on their blogs. Writers can make money by listing their articles on the ArticleMe marketplace. There is no cost to list your articles on the service. ArticleMe takes a 30% cut of sales as their fee. Payments are sent the instant sales are made.

Three Types of Licenses

The articles on ArticleMe are available in three content licenses:

  • Usage – This type of licenses only gives buyers the right to use the content, but allows you to keep selling the content to more than one buyer.
  • Unique – This licenses type allows you to sell the content to only one buyer. They will be the only user of this content, however they can not resell the content.
  • Full – This type of licenses gives the buyer full rights to the content. This means you no longer own the content rights. The new owner can sell, use, or display the content to others in any way they see fit.

As a blogger, I recommend you buy only unique or full license content. A Usage licensed article isn’t much better than a PLR license and might land you with a duplicate content penalty from Google.

Win $3,000 from ArticleMe is a new service and as such, doesn’t have many articles in their marketplace. They plan to change that with a $3,000 cover story contest. If you have a blog, you could win cash for blogging about the launch of (like what I’m doing right now). If your write-up is chosen as the winning cover story you will be featured on the front page of ArticleMe and win $3,000 USD. Here are the rules:

  • You need a blog
  • Your cover story must be about ArticleMe
  • You have a link to within the cover story
  • You can only enter in 3 stories in the contest and they must be published 3 months apart
  • Once your story is published you need to submit it within 24 hours to qualify for the contest

$3,000 to write a cover story. Even I’ll enter that! Oh wait, I just did. Good luck with your entry. Should I win, I will donate the money to World Vision Canada.

  1. I think this might be good for secondary blogs (not your branding identity).

    1. I think we can use it in our branding blog also by re-write the article.

    I know people are not going to believe me now but i was thinking of creating a content providers marketplace myself. Its a good idea and i am going to use it.

  3. Max Deal says:

    I wouldn’t ever buy articles.

    1. If your first starting out, your blog needs to be unique and YOU.

    2. If your a high roller, like John, he needs to make his blog unique and his own take on the post, since millions of people see it.

    1. Well for personal kind of blogs such as John chow definitely your own words are quite important or Guest posts.

      But for other niches such as tech or health or travel you will definitely need articles and for such kind of websites this is really a boon.

    When would it end?

    Nice concept..I just don’t like the fact you cannot get any backlinks from it which outweighs the potential one-time fee. I guess it depends on your particular objective though..

    1. Levi says:

      You can get backlinks on ArticleMe. Just include them in the article or include a byline. Get links and get paid!

  6. Wonder what the cost difference would be like from ArticleMe compared to getting articles written for you from someone on Elance.

    1. Sign up and find it out.

  7. Seems like a nifty little aplication we got there Chow. I’m actually interested in buying it. Still in the market looking at a program that actually converts well. I’m just crossing my fingers right now.

  8. interesting place…I know some websites that’ll help me flip websites…articleme is a different endeavour

  9. %30 seems too much for this service.

    1. Levi says:

      Everyone else charges authors 50%. Your losing 20% of your cash if your not using ArticleMe.

  10. I don’t care for sites like this. I don’t think I ever will. I love writing my own content way too much.

  11. Valtorc says:

    I’ve always created my own, original content. I am not a fan for buying content.

  12. agree with ..Max Deal .
    never buy articls..;)

  13. Haha do you think John care about buying articles lol? He’s just trying to with the $3,000 😛 Good luck John and anyone else who’s taking part in the contest 🙂

  14. Anyway great long post John but unfortunately you didn’t tell us much either just the usual build a list and make money post. We all know we need to make a free eBook, get an account from Aweber and do the followup automailer thing, The only place we all get stuck is the traffic part and in that regards all you said was be creative loll… better luck next time 🙂

    1. Ups sry this was supposed to go in the Clickbank post, for some reason I’m having trouble accessing your blog today John, problems with hosting? Is anyone else experiencing the same thing. Sry for the multiple comments.

  15. Mathew Day says:

    Cool site, I was wondering if there was a good place for this type of service. 3 grand for first place, sweet contest!

  16. fas says:

    That is a nice way to earn some $$$

    They should have given away an ipad.

  17. Muxx says:

    Although I wouldn’t use PLR articles or paid articles on my blog and a few of my websites, this looks pretty good for my freelance writing.

    Starting out and getting paid a measly $2 – $4 an article is backbreaking when you put so much work into them.

    Checking it out now.

  18. Free Picks says:

    WOW i am planing to enter in the contest, can you tell me the end date?

  19. Joe says:

    I wouldn’t buy articles especially since it’s so easy to write one. Just spend 20 minutes writing a few ideas down and in no time you’ll have a 500 word article.

  20. Lee Ka Hoong says:

    I have my regular content writer and they provide me good quality article at affordable price. I’ve never heard about ArticleMe, may give it a try.


  21. Good concept and nice place to let people know about this.

    I think you should also use other top forums to advertise about your website.

    Best of luck.

  22. This is the first time I saw an article marketplace. I know where to go if I need to write something next time.

    1. scheng1 says:

      If you want to choose articles that are already written, you can consider Dailyarticle. The writers put up the unique content for sale. The average rate is $20 per article. Some PLR webmasters purchase the whole lot and bundle into an article pack.

  23. Buying articles only works in certain situations. Blogs must be unique and have consistent personality.


  24. scheng1 says:

    The market rate for some passable articles is about 1 to 1.5 cents per word. Those are the articles good enough for submission to article directories for affiliate marketing purpose.
    The concept of Articleme seems more like Constant Content.
