Want to Monetize Old Content? Contact Me Now

tree.jpgHey, everyone. This is a bit of a non-typical post but I figured I might as well reach out to my community of readers since reaching out to some other folks (like Engadget and Gizmodo and CNet and Expert Village and the bloggers from B5 Media and others ) didn’t result in any responses…

Basically, I have a client that is interested in republishing your “how to” content as well as an good “tips and tricks” or “did you know” sort of information that you may have published previously but would like to monetize again.

Here are the details:

OPPORTUNITY FEE: $10 to $15 per post.
MyThings, Inc. is offering cash for your archived or newly created content (archived content is preferred). Additionally, MyThings is offering bloggers significant awareness of content to its member base and web traffic.

– Must provide a practical and useful tip for a product (laptop, digital camera, dishwasher, etc.) in one of the following categories: Mobile, Laptop, Desktop, Mac/PC, Digital Camera, Appliances, Home Theatre, Car Accessories, Gaming Consoles or Sporting Goods.
– MyThings prefers practical, useful and fun posts. We are looking for “Tips and Tricks”, “Do It Yourself” and/or “How To” type content. The more practical ‘Tip’, the better it is.
– Must send post (link) or e-mail to

MyThings.com is a fast growing global company (headquartered in Menlo Park, CA, with offices in London and Tel-Aviv). MyThings helps consumers organize and manage all the possessions they value most. With one click, MyThings allows consumers to save details of an online purchase. Our web service is highly engaging, interactive, and free. Our members return frequently to access relevant information and services of things they own.

To keep members coming back, MyThings has started a content section of interesting tips… connecting consumers to useful and fun content about their things. We are looking for posts that specifically relate to “tips and tricks”, “do it yourself” and “how to” type content. For example, after a member registers her dishwasher on MyThings, we’ll provide practical and fun tips such as: how to use your dishwasher to poach salmon, wash keyboards, or clean hats. When she registers her digital camera, she’ll get a tip that twisting her feet in photos will make her look thinner. When she buys a microwave, she’ll get a tip that microwaving a lemon in water to clean stuck-on dirt. Our members aren’t interested in an elaborate hacks for their GPS, but they will care if mounting their new navigation system a certain way may attracts thieves… or how to use their GPS to avoid speeding tickets. The criteria for content we are looking for is less cutting edge and technical… more simple and useful.

NOTE: We are happy to re-use old content, if it meets our criteria.

So, if you have any content of this sort that you’d like to contribute for a fee, either get in touch with me directly or contact MyThings at the email address above.
