Nuus.com – New for Us That Makes Money for You

Nuus.com

Nuus.com is a new site that gets its news from its user base. User can submit stories they find on the web to Nuus.com to share with other users. Now, you might be thinking this sounds a lot like Digg.com. However, there are several differences. The first is there’s no voting system. Stories are published based on what Nuus.com editors think. If they like your submission, it gets published. If they don’t like it, your story will never see the light of day.

Make $1 Per Story

Here’s the neat part. If your story gets published, you get a $1USD sent to your PayPal account. There’s no limit on the number of stories you can submit. The creators of the site gave the following key points:

  • It’s similar to digg, except that people are PAID if their news is pubblished on our main page.
  • It a little revolution for the world of news.
  • We want to give the people the opportunity to earn money, just for sharing their passions.
  • It’s a great opportunity for people that like to blog about something, but they don’t have time to keep up with an entire blog on a daily basis.
  • It’s a way to get your content to a large audience without paying for the traffic.

Nuus.com is a brand new site and all the stories so far has been submitted by the in house editorial team. They are hoping to change that however as more and more people discover the site and submit stories. The end goal is to be a big news site that rewards both the site owner and the site users.

The concept is a neat one and I think it can take off if the site’s built in viral nature starts to take hold. However, before it can do that I think Nuus.com needs to tidy up the site a bit. For one thing, the about page is still in its default “This is an example of a WordPress page” mode and the contact page doesn’t appear to be in English. Stuff like this really takes away from the professionalism of the site.

Those two nick picks aside, I do like the concept of Nuus.com. Rewarding users for content isn’t new but Nuus.com has done it in a very easy to use fashion and that’s the key. The question now is will users submit their story for the promise of a dollar? Would you?

  1. I agree, John.

    Great concept for the website, nice clean design and layout, but it is still a little bit flawed. Wish they worked out the kinks before going public with the site, but I’m sure they’ll soon correct those errors.

    As for users submitting content, I could definitely see a beginner blogger submitting content to make a quick buck or too, as well as the not-so-serious blogger who wants to take a shot at making money from their hobby.

  2. so you only make money if you get on their front page? That doesn’t sound like that great a deal to me.

    1. John Chow says:

      You make money if your article gets accepted. Whether it goes on the front page is up to them.

      1. ibnujusup says:

        that’s great… 🙂

  3. AdWooz says:

    Great marketing strategy – $1 per article. It’s not new but sounds good in the beginning. It’s brand new and some sections are not finished. e.g. About section still has default info.
    In general good concept. I like it

    1. All I could find was news stories with about 1 paragraph of content linking to another story on another site.

  4. chester says:

    Not a bad idea but boy it would be hard to make a living from it.

    1. Why you are targetting $1.00 just think if this website become hit and your article approved than you will be able to get good traffic.

      1. It’s supposed to be news, not spammy articles with your links in them.

        1. Well unless and until you try yourself … you can not say.

  5. Dot Com Note says:

    Is it a sponsored post? Otherwise, I don’t see what is great about this site. Or is it another MillionDollarWiki thingy?

    The site looks like a poor article directory to me. Also, I did not find anywhere about the dollar payment? May be I missed it.

    But the idea is clever. If lots of people start sending stories, they will, in fact, be buying quality blog post for one dollar.

    I will not recommend anybody write stories for this site. If you really want to make some money, eHow is a better option.

  6. seems like they paid for a review….

      1. That is a great disclosure policy! If I am not making money, I will correct the situation to do so!

    1. It seems that you do not know about this blog. 😆

      1. what makes you think that I do not know about this blog. May be you don’t know why you are here in the first place…:)

  7. neelmoney says:

    Idea is innovative , I have experience of digg submission. so after all it is difficult to move to front page of site like this,

    1. When there is no voting system how you will be able to reach there.

      This is really interesting and as I said before there are few questions which I would love to get the answers after exploring their websites.

  8. Thanks for heads up John will check it out

  9. Simon Bunker says:

    Will have a look at this but I am not sure that it will take off, however I will reserve judgement. They really should have sorted the site out before submitting for a review!!!

  10. Seems pretty cool. Worth giving it a shot. It will be interesting to see how well the site takes off.

  11. jeremy says:

    it’s COOOOL it works, earned 2$ in one hour!!!

    1. So what is your article URL … would love to see and read your story.

      1. I’m pretty sure he’s joking here.

    2. Wow, you’re rich now. $2 an hour is some serious bank dude!

      1. And now you must be joking … lolzz

  12. Kuljo says:

    IT WORKS, IT WORKS!!! i’m getting interested in this site….

  13. Mr Shapiro says:

    GOT PAID! niceeeeee

  14. I just wonder if the paid system will last forever or it is only for promotional purpose.

  15. fas says:

    Will this change diggs position? Maybe.

    1. I don’t see how this would affect digg at all.

      1. This is too early to say this.

        But I do not think that this kind of website will cause any damage to digg.

  16. Mr Shapiro says:

    actually, the site is not very populated, I’m sending news since this morning, and I’m still get always paid!! I’ve made 50$ only today!!

    1. They pay instantly … ?

      How much Paypal charged you as paypal fee ?

  17. ppc tips says:

    I would think a good article would be worth at least $5. Would the author at least get credit for writing the article? Maybe a link to his or her blog? Thanks

  18. Citizen says:

    It might be worth doing this depending what country you live in $1/article would get you close to $500 if you work hard 7 days/week and in certain countries this is a very good wage.

  19. Mr Shapiro says:

    65 $ and still posting… it’s amazing… why this site hasn’t existed before???

  20. Shirley says:

    That’s a very interesting concept from Nuus. Not bad to receive a dollar for sharing news :).

  21. I am skeptical of this site. They don’t look like they have it organized very well as of yet and who knows how much spam they will receive. Will they be able to handle all of the news?

    1. You raise a valid point regarding spam …

      Plus if they wont approve good story than very soon they will be in headlines for bad reason.

  22. Jacob says:

    So…I have to write a unique article and submit it? If it is approved, I get a buck? Or do I just send a link to a story with a little information about it and if that is approved, I get a buck?

    1. John Chow says:

      Looking at the site, it looks like they are accepting news stories and you can credit the source with a link.

      1. And if you want to get traffic for your website than you should write yourself and give the link of your website.

  23. I took a look at it and looked it up in websiteoutlook… Hopefully it will take off and get bigger, but I agree that they are not ready yet but it’s a nice concept.

  24. Nick says:

    Thanks John! It’s not new as marketing strategy. However, not a bad idea. I’ll try it, today!

  25. Definitely not going to make yourself a living on this site.

  26. Nice concept.Similar to freelancing. But what i wanna know is , is it the $1 we will get or After getting our story published can we earn more depending on traffic,ad revenue sharing e.t.c

    1. John Chow says:

      right now, it’s just $1 flat per story.

  27. You might also look at seed.com (part of AOL network)

  28. There are many questions coming to my mind and would love to give a try to this.

    Can get good traffic.

  29. Innovative site! Good luck to them. Will be interesting to see if they get any traction.

  30. My native tongue is Afrikaans, and nuus means news in my language, so this is one URL I will not forget in a hurry! I like the $1 incentive, but with bank charges and fees being what they are, is it worth all the trouble?

  31. I wonder if spammers will find a way to exploit this.

  32. S Ahsan says:

    Its just a good stuff for beginners. Worth trying but not for me right now…

  33. Who are some of the people above saying they got paid? Gotta wonder if they work for that site.

  34. Innovative site! Good luck to them. Will be interesting to see if they get any traction.

  35. David Walker says:

    Sounds like a great idea but this is what I just got off the site :

    “So to practically said, man feel less guilt, it is entirely unaccepted. Man are the shakers and movers of the world.

    A lot of leaders in today world is man. Only a small fraction of it is female.”

    Nah, wouldn’t be going back anytime soon.

  36. nada says:
