Bukisa is one of the newest web sites to offer writers the opportunity to make money writing and displaying your articles, poems and other works. ("Bukisa" is the Zulu word for "display") Founded at the end of 2008, Bukisa operates somewhat like Associated Content, eHow, and Google's Knol where writers get paid for what they know through posting articles, how-to, videos, or podcasts on just about any topic.
Bukisa writers also earn a share of the profits the ads on their articles earn. Right now the Bukisa index is at $3.65. The Bukisa index number means is that for every 1,000 unique visits (by humans), a writer earns $3.65. The Bukisa Index is updated at least once each month and is based upon the overall performance of the Bukisa website's earnings. Three days ago, it was $3.95.
One of the nicest things about Bukisa, however, is the fact you also earn a small percent on people you refer. In other words, if you sign up under me using my referral link , you become part of my network. You don't loose any money, but I will make a small referral fee. By the same token, if you sign up some friends, you not only earn an income from your own articles, you earn a little from the network you create as well.
So after you read this article and join , you will want to invite your friends from Associated Content, eHow, MySpace, Helium, Facebook, and your other networks to follow you to Bukisa and join here as well. It is a win/win situation. Since it is in my best interest to have a successful network, I plan to post tips for my network on how to get the most out of writing articles for Bukisa.
The more people you refer to Bukisa, the greater your earning opportunities are as you earn a small commission on the articles your friends write. They will still earn the $3.65 per 1,000 on their articles that you will earn on yours, but you earn a small percentage on their articles, too
Bukisa accepts articles and poems previously published on other sites, so it is a great way to get more mileage out of those eHow, Knol, Associated Content and other articles. After you post a non-exclusive article on another site, you can just copy and paste it over to Bukisa and earn more money, and vice versa!
I am new to Bukisa, but I am happy to try to answer any questions. You will find my referral link below. I have already played around and have found it very easy to use. I like the idea of getting in on the ground floor, building a network and helping other writers achieve their goals and develop their craft. I also like the idea of having a greater readership for my articles than one site alone can provide. Bukisa offers a unique opportunity for growth and extra income.
