Good way for new writers to start getting work published Editors are responsive and quick to provide feedback when a draft needs changing for any reason
Pay based on views (50p per thousand views) means you hardly get paid anything - you either have to rush out an article in as little time as possible or hope and pray that it gets enough views that... it'll actually be worth your while, eg. spend 2.5 hours on an article and you'd have to get over 44,000 views just to make the equivalent of minimum wage from it. Pitches are also a little restrictive - almost every article is a list/top 10 etc. so there's a limit to what sort of articles you can get published
Advice to Management
Pay your writers more to make it more worth their while!
