So I gave Seed.com a try tonight. Interesting model, poor web site.
They allow you to select articles you want to write or pictures you want to submit and have a price associated with each of them. Then you submit your stuff, and then they explain “the deal”. They will do one of three things with the article you have now written (or picture submitted):
- Buy it outright for the price you offered
- Put it on their web site and rev share an unspecified percentage with you
- Tell you they don’t want it
It was interesting that they didn’t really explain that until after I wrote my article. I wonder how that works out for them.
