Payment options for the writers on user-generated content site
Recently, I created a user-generated content site. The primary aim of this site is to pay the writers who publish on this site. I have about a dozen writers publishing on my site. I have monetized the website through network ads and affiliate ads. The website is not generating revenue yet. I am offering pay per view, I will be paying x amount for 1000 unique views. Pay per view is not a stable model. I was once on a site that paid for unique views, however, later switched to revenue sharing. Revenue sharing does not work on a new site because it takes a long time to generate revenue. I was once on a site that shared 80 percent revenue to the users. I earned only $3 in 4 months despite publishing every day.
Another option is points based system where user earns points for activities and these points can be converted for cash. This also does not look stable because you might be en up paying more than you are earning. My website is called Rational Mind
