How Absolutely Anyone Can Make $25/hour With Spinning

By Alex Cardinell on October 10, 2012

EDIT: This post was written in 2012, well before WordAi Version 2. This method still works really well, but the video is out of date and a lot of the calculations here are a little off. This is because with WordAi Version 2 it is now even quicker and even easier to create a high quality unique article (usually requiring no editing at all!)

I’ve noticed recently that most people who use spinners are only using them for SEO. Although spinning is great for SEO, there are many other ways to use spinning to make a lot of money.

With that in mind, I’ve decided to talk about one of those methods today. It’s actually pretty simple to do and doesn’t require any SEO, or really any expertise. All it requires is basic English skills and the willingness to actually put in the time. When I say $25/hour, I mean $25 per hour you devote completely to doing what I tell you. That might not be “get stupidly rich” money, but that is pretty damn good for a job that requires no special skills. And if you want “get stupidly rich” money, this will still work for you. Why? Because, as you’ll see later in this post, you can pay other people to do this for $10/hour, sell their work for $25/hour, and keep the $15/hour profit for yourself without having to do any work!

So What is This Super Secret Thing I’m Doing?

That’s the best part, there is nothing secretive about it at all! You are just a content writer. Now let me address all of the reasons you think this won’t work and show you that you’re wrong. I’ll start with the most obvious one:

But Alex, Freelance Content Writers Do Not Make $25/hour!

You are right, and I’ll do some basic math to prove it (and then tell you how you can cheat and tweak those numbers).
Freelance content writers generally charge per word and not per hour. A good writer can usually charge somewhere between $1.00 and $1.50 per 100 words and can probably write 750-1000 words per hour. That works out from anywhere to $7.50/hour to $15/hour. But that’s not even including the time spent acquiring new writing clients. So how did I turn this $10/hour job into a $25/hour job?

I found a simple way to take somebody who writes 750 words per hour and turn them into somebody who writes 4,000 words per hour! And if you write 4,000 words per hour, and charge a measly $0.65 per 100 words, that works out to over $25/hour!

Typing 4,000 words per hour is typing over 1 word a second. You said this was something anybody could do!

You got me there. The real secret is not that being a content writer can make money. The secret is that you can be a content writer without having to write a single article for yourself. The two ways content purchasers judge content is readability (quality) and uniqueness. The first one is pretty easy to figure out (just read an article and see if it makes sense). The second one, uniqueness, is a lot harder for people to judge. In the end, all a user can do is check Copyscape and see if the article has any duplicates across the web. So you can just rewrite an existing article, and as long as it makes sense (both the grammar and the content), and passes Copyscape, you will have a happy buyer on the other end. Not only will the buyer think the article is unique, but Google will as well, and to be honest… since the article is rewritten, it is unique!

So here is how you rewrite an article at 1 word per second

You don’t. When I do this (I only ever do guides like this if I have personally tested it myself first to make sure it works), I rewrite maybe 3% of the words in the article. I get WordAi to do all the rest! So, I find an article directory (just search “article directory” on Google and you’ll find hundreds of them), search for a good article in that article directory, put that article into WordAi, and WordAi will do 99% of the rewriting for me.

Can I just use any spinner to do this?

You could, but you will end up regretting it later on. The issue with most other spinners, is they make mistakes so often that you end up having to rewrite the entire article anyways, correcting all of the mistakes that the spinner makes. Or you end up with so few synonyms that you’ll have to rewrite 50% of the article yourself before it can pass Copyscape. WordAi’s Turing Spinner (aptly named after the Turing Test it strives to beat) produces spintax that is so readable, you do not need to spend much time editing it up. In fact, since the Turing Spinner spins to a uniqueness that can usually pass Copyscape, I often make zero changes to the spintax before it is ready to be passed on as unique content. Don’t believe me? Check out this video of me in action:

 

In that video I rewrote a 400 word article in about 5 minutes (the video ended at 4:30, but I did end up spending another 20 seconds after that doing a couple spot edits), and in the entire hour I spent working I rewrote 10 articles. I didn’t sell the article in the video (I would never publicly out work done for a client), but for the entire hour I rewrote 4,500 words, which could easily be sold for $25-30. I am able to leverage the fact that the Turing Spinner generates human quality content and I sell this “free” content to legions of happy buyers. There is no other spinner in the world that can generate spintax that is this readable AND is unique enough that it can pass Copyscape right off the bat, so you will be wasting time and money if you use anything else.

Wait, where are these “legions of happy buyers” you talk about?

Free content is very valuable, but it is more valuable when you have people wanting to buy it. There are tons of places to sell content, and because you are writing content faster than all of your competitors, you can offer your content cheaper than anyone else. That makes it really easy to get people lining up to buy content. But enough talking, I’ll just give you a couple sources where you can sell content with very little hassle, time investment, or overhead:

All four of these are great places to sell content; I’ve tried all four of them and have great success with each of them. And of course, if you are looking to scale, there are sources even better than that. I left out the best sources for readers to figure out for themselves… although if this article gets enough traction and enough people ask for it, I’ll consider outting a couple of my gems :)

But the absolute best way to sell content, no matter which site you use, is to turn those initial customers into repeat buyers. I recently did a deal with an Indian content writing firm that writes 2,000,000 words/mo and they moved all of their writers to using WordAi. Now their content is sold for less, they have higher margins, and ironically, the quality of their content has gone up! So, once you get a longterm customer like that (even if they don’t write that much), you can then spend all of your time writing content, and not have to waste any of your time searching for new customers.

So How Much Money Can the Average Person Really Make With This?

If you are willing to work and completely dedicate 35-40 hours per week for this, the average person should have no problem making over $45,000/year doing this. If you only want to work part time, you can probably earn half of that. And once you have a couple of dedicated content clients (all of the above “content sources” I listed above are great places to find long term content buyers) you can probably end up making even more. And at that point, you can just pay somebody else to use WordAi for you while you spend your day on the beach (or wherever you want to be) collecting your check while doing absolutely nothing!

    That’s a very nice feature set. I’d like to see speech to text integrated a little better but other than that it looks pretty good.

    First tier content – at a decent price. Nice

    Great post thanks.
    Do you have any plans to add the editing functionality to the spun articles? I often want to make the odd amendment or correction in the spun copies before I post them. Obviously I can copy them out and edit them but would be great to use the WordAi interface like we can for the spintax version.
    Just a suggestion :)

    How do you resell the rewritten articles? I understand taking an order, and outsourcing it, then spinning, but what is done to make the profits with the spun work?

  4. charlie on said:

    noce article! you gave me some good ideas.

    the important thing here is to take action, which unfortunately a lot of the readers won’t.

    and … uhm… yes, LOL do spill your gem sources!!!!

    • Alex Cardinell on said:

      It depends on what you are trying to do. If you don’t plan on doing any rewriting yourself I would recommend “Unique” or “Very Unique”. If you are willing to spend 3-5 minutes doing some quick rewrites, I would use “Readable” or maybe “Very Readable”.

    I lol’d hard

    What if you are not a very quick writer? I can type faster than I think! but it won’t make much sense lol

    I like the idea of hiring a team of writers to use my WORDAI account(s) and paying them $10/h while we keep the other $15 :) This could be a nice little profitable idea with not as much work involved on our part.

    However where could I hire these writers? at $10 an hour and get enough buyers to fullfill demand. I’m interested in you sharing more information about this and hopefully spill some of your gems.

      • Vapour Kings on said:

        I’m already a customer of yours and it does a pretty good job spinning however I tested my abilities I can type about 55 words per minute copying from something that is already written down but when thinking and writing is involved it’s much slower.

        During my test I did the same as you I went to ezine grabbed an article that looked ok (523 words) although it turned out it was published in 2008 and there were allready loads of different spin variations of it online therefore instead of 60% uniqueness to pass copyscape I needed to go has high as 74% uniqueness for it to pass copyscape.

        After all of my editing and making sure it was readable and passes copyscape it took me a whopping 10 minutes 53 seconds. that is more than double the time it took you on your video. Maybe you have special powers I don’t know or maybe I should whip out my dragon speaking that has been collecting digital dust and see if I can do it quicker a second time. Because at that rate I would only finish 5 and 2/3rds of an article within the hour. or 523 * 5.70 = 2980 words an hour.

        So at my current rate I would need to charge 25/29.80 = $0.84 for each 100 words.to reach $25/h and I live in the UK so after exchange rate £15.48 an hour. at 40 hours a week that’s £2,476 a month or £29,721 per year. Thats just under the average UK salary for adult males in the UK.

        I think it would be more powerfull if your were able to get a handful of good writers for $10/h but to be frank it’s quite difficult to find 1 good writer who would work for $10 an hour and stay committed let alone trying to manage half a dozen. It’s plausable I guess

        • Alex Cardinell on said:

          I would recommend that you do not choose old articles for the reason you mentioned; they are often already spun. If you do choose an old article, I would run it through Copyscape first to see if there are spun copies already on the web. If you do that first (or don’t pick old articles) that will probably lower the time it takes from 11 minutes to 7 minutes, which would mean you would make closer to £25/hour.

          We currently have over 10 full time content writers employed using these methods. Although not all of the writers are perfect, we were able to do a good job at quickly getting rid of the bad writers and training the good ones. This may be another thing I will blog about in the future: how to find and train good content rewriters.

    Hi there,

    I like your service and I want to subscribe right away but I have a question. I read on your BHW thread that you have a limit of 3000 word that can be entered in the software!. Did you change that ? , I have some old super spun articles that I bought and I want to spin them using your service, You know that quality super spun articles will be far more than 3000 word.

    • Alex Cardinell on said:

      Hi! You can spin more than 3000 words with the Turing Spinner, however we currently limit you to 3000 words per spin (although we will be increasing this amount soon). So if you have a 9,000 word superspun document you can just split it into 3 parts and spin each of them separately. If that is still an issue, feel free to contact me through the contact form and I’ll try to help you out.

    GEMS!!!!!!!

  9. Alon Shuster on said:

    I’m currently using the 3 day trial and from what I saw, ill probably buy a subscription.
    I currently using iwriter as my main income source because of you.

    I would glady appreciate that you share us atleast one of your gems, I will be very valuable to me.

    Thank you
    and Thanks you for your spinner
    Alon

  10. Marc on said:

    The issue I’m finding with this method is finding good source articles to spin. I actually tried this very method out a few months back for awhile. The issue for me remains the same: finding good source articles.

    For example, someone wants an article written about “How to lose your arm in the UK” or some such. That’s how most of the orders I see go…any thoughts on that one, Alex? Most orders being very….specific, I guess?
