I just signed up with a site called The News Room. This website allows website owners to publish news content on their sites. Not only does The News Room provide content that you can use to enhance your posts, but it also allows you to earn some money just by using the service.
So how do you make money by using The Newsroom? It’s simple really. Just sign up for the service and then browse through the current news listings until you find news that’s relevant to your site, or find a piece that is something you’d like to post about and add a feed or video to your article.
CPM (cost per thousand) starts at $1 which means that for every thousand views you’ll be paid a dollar – at the very lowest, for the content that you chose to provide on your site. You might also be interested to know that the payout for placing a video feed on your site is $4 per CPM. This payout is excellent compared to many other affiliate type programs, and what’s more, you’ll be adding content to your site that will enhance your articles.
One of the really cool things about The News Room is that if someone visits your site and they like the news story that you’ve posted they can take a copy of it right from your site. That’s called Mashing. You’ll make some money when they Mash a story from your site too.
For example, I decided to post this news video in this post to demonstrate to you how you can use news content in your articles, and to show you how the story can be mashed from my site.
You know that artist that gets large groups of people to pose naked for photographs in public places? Well he did it again. If you watch the video I don’t think you’ll find anything offensive on it – naked body parts have yellow dots on them.
Do you see that Mash symbol? Well, if you want to put this content on your site too, you can just Mash it.
How does mashing work? The diagram that I’ve included below shows how a person can make money when a great news story is shared from site to site:
There’s yet another bonus to this program:
I’m not sure how this works, but there’s a loyalty program that allows those who use the site to provide content on their own websites a chance to win prizes such as vacation, electronics and even cars.
When I first signed up I spent some time on the site trying to find out exactly how to get the video on my site. It’s simple really. As I said earlier, just browse through the sites content, find something that you want to add to your site, decide if you want just the video news story, a full feed of the section you’re in, a text story or even make up your own feed of news stories then hit the Mash button and follow the instructions. Easy.
There are hundreds of thousands of news stories to choose from and all are fully licensed new stories from major content providers such as Reuters, Associated Press and so on.
Give it a try. There’s lots of great news content available and you can earn money by adding it to your site. Start by mashing the video that I placed in this post if you like.
