Suite 101

Posted on January 13, 2011


Suite 101 is an article database that pays writers revenue share. You’ve probably already heard about the company. It’s been around for over 10 years and hosts a bevy of writers. Some call it Suh-weet 101, since they say they reap bountiful rewards from it. Okay, they don’t really call it that, but, based on the rewards they note, maybe they should.

Others are not so impressed. They say that writers receive a very tiny percentage of revenue share, compared to what the company retains.

Accepted as a writer for Suite 101 some time ago, I have yet to post an article there. I always thought you couldn’t make money on the site. Well, it appears I may be wrong … but it may take a couple of years to realize the profits. Keep in mind, though, after you write the article, it’s all passive income until the cows come home.

I mention this, because I’ve seen recent posts on other writers’ blogs noting the income generated from articles they’ve written for Suite 101 — $17, $24, $27 and other amounts. Most timeframes to cumulate this income was over a period of 1 to 2 years. That’s not bad income if you submit articles on topics that take very little time to write about, and you write lots of them. I can write an article on a topic on which I am very familiar in around 15 minutes. It may take other writers even less time.

The other benefits to writing for Suite 101 include visibility as a professional writer, backlinks to your blog to generate more traffic and they attribute articles to you and include your bio. When applying to write for companies, they often want to see articles attributed to you. If you write a lot of content as a ghostwriter, you have ready writing samples attributed to you as a Suite 101 author. You can display your talent to other companies and use the links to these articles as sample work for your standard email introduction. I’ve even heard that some writers receive job offers simply because a company ran into their displayed talent in Suite 101.

Suite 101 offers their writers free professional writing instruction, SEO strategies and lots of other truly useful information for writing articles. They have lots of resources available to writers in written form. You can reference them anytime you have a question or want to learn more about Internet content writing.

Sounds like a win-win-win situation all around.

To be considered to write for Suite 101, simply visit the company’s website and apply.

You, too, could end up earning Suh-weet 101 profits.
