    • I’m not sure if I follow you Walter. Why would it jeopardize the uniqueness by getting someone to create the content for free?

  1. You could have them use their adsense on every post they write meaning they get the full amount giving more incentive to contribute content.

    I’m not sure if you could convince someone to take on the challenge, but then you’ll never know if you don’t give it a go.

    • I personally prefer to show my AdSense half of the times and their AdSense half of the times. By doing so you make sure you split the income in half, even though it might differentiate a few dollar.

      When it comes to convincing people I have actually already a few people doing this for me and it works great. The secret is to find someone who really loves the niche.

      • Thats not a bad idea, I was going to suggest offering them equity of the blog in return for their content, but this way you can keep the entire blog to yourself.

        Excellent Post! 😀

        • Thank you Brad. I personally prefer to be in charge and instead pay others instead of offer equity of the blog. With that said it could be a good idea sometimes if you spend as much time and effort. Feel free to put in a good word for me in your blog. 😉

  2. I would think it would be hard to find others, but you say you already have people doing it. Congrats to you Stefan.

    I might try this at a later stage, not right now. It was an interesting read.

    • Well, I wouldn’t say there are more work than if you had to create the content by yourself. As long as you stay helpful and help them as soon as they get any problem you will be all right.

  3. Stefan,
    It’s indeed better than hiring a professional writer. However, there would be few things people taking this advice to implement to take care of:
    1. Have a control over content
    2. Decide the financial details before you start
    3. Be careful about consistency in the initial era.
    I am sure it can work out fine when you work on the principles of give & take instead of take & take.

    • Good addition Chris. I did not mention this in my post but it is a good idea to take regular backups since the author might go by the board if you have a dispute.

      As you say it is important to work on the principles of both giving and taking. If you do not give something back the author will either be upset with you or simply quit.

      • Somehow, I know it is kinda understanding we are expected to have. But I thought it might be worthwhile just to mention it for readers as the simplest of unmentioned principles of success are the differentiating factor between the wanna be & a really successful one.
        I hope it helps your readers.

    • You should never stop commenting here. How would I else get the energy to keep up and deliver great content like this? 😉

    • The best thing is without doubt when you are able to win the race before anyone else by predicting who will become famous and buy the domain directly. This is actually something you should try to do within all niches.
