Truck-Drivers-Money-Saving-Tips.com announces the
launch of the Truckers Savings Journalists program on their site. This
program gives approved professional truck drivers ("Journalists") the
opportunity to earn money from advertising appearing with
industry-specific money saving articles and reviews they write and
submit to the site. More information about the program can be obtained
Aiken, SC (PRWEB) December 12, 2012 -- When Mike and Vicki Simons, creators of Truck-Drivers-Money-Saving-Tips.com, published the 500th page of their own content and another 145 pages of reader-submitted content on their site, they felt it was time to take a revolutionary step. Today, they are launching the Truckers Savings Journalists program. This program enables current and former professional truck drivers who have been approved as "Journalists" to earn money from advertising that accompanies articles and reviews they have written, the content of which must focus on how truck drivers save money.
"Since 2009, Truck-Drivers-Money-Saving-Tips.com has been proven to be the place to 'Get and share great money saving tips for truck drivers,' no matter what kinds of trucks or where in the world truckers drive professionally," said Vicki Simons. "To meet our goal of making our site a clearinghouse of how truck drivers around the world save money, our new Truckers Savings Journalists program will encourage approved 'Journalists' to share their industry-specific money saving knowledge ('truck drivers money saving tips') with other truckers and let them earn a little something in return."
The couple states that money should not be the primary reason to become a Truckers Savings Journalist with Truck-Drivers-Money-Saving-Tips.com, because earnings alone are not enough of a reward for someone who isn't simultaneously passionate about helping professional truck drivers save money. The authors most likely to enjoy becoming Truckers Savings Journalists will be those who wish to be involved in something significant to benefit the worldwide trucking community, not merely something that generates a paycheck. The couple further states that Journalists who drive professionally must never compromise their sleeper berth time or other work-related duties to contribute articles or reviews through the Truckers Savings Journalists program.
Allen and Donna Smith of AskTheTrucker.com, TruthAboutTrucking.com and TruckingSocialMedia.com were quoted in the Truck-Drivers-Money-Saving-Tips.com brochure that was available at the 2012 Truck Driver Social Media Convention. They said, "Mike and Vicki Simons have created an interactive website that is incredibly comprehensive and helpful to Students, New Drivers, and Veteran Drivers alike. They have taken their passion and desire to help people to a whole new level. We strongly urge all drivers to not just take a look, but to become a part of the expanding wealth of knowledge that Truck-Drivers-Money-Saving-Tips.com has to freely offer. It truly is the Wikipedia of saving money in trucking."

Through Truck-Drivers-Money-Saving-Tips.com, Mike and Vicki Simons provide real world tips that help professional truck drivers save hard-earned money and personal reporting about products and services for use on the road. They have developed their unique website as a place to share the tips they have learned through the years and where other professional drivers can do the same.
Since 2009, Mike and Vicki have helped untold numbers of professional truck drivers and their home support team members save money in many different ways. The couple's 21+ years of marriage, frugal lifestyle and commercial driving experience serve as the backdrop for blending two of their passions: truck driving and saving money. Not only have they published hundreds of articles and reviews on their site, but they have also sent thousands of news snippets to their continually updated blog. The blog is about how truckers can save money or are being forced to spend more money in their jobs. They also publish a free monthly email newsletter that is now in its 4th year of publication.
Truckers Savings Journalists Overview
The Truckers Savings Journalists Program allows approved current and former professional truck drivers ("Journalists") to earn an ongoing revenue stream by writing news articles and/or reviews that will be published on the Truck-Drivers-Money-Saving-Tips.com website. Articles and reviews published under this program must focus on how professional truck drivers can save money or are being forced to spend more money in their jobs.
Truckers Savings Journalists Program applicants choose a topic ("beat") that they want to cover from the perspective of professional truck drivers saving money. Once approved into the program, a Journalist writes and submits articles and/or reviews to Truck-Drivers-Money-Saving-Tips.com for review and publication on the site.
Each article or review submitted by a Journalist is published with two files:
Each Journalist must have a Google AdSense account to participate and earn revenue. All clicks on and earnings from the Journalist's AdSense ads are paid directly to the Journalist by Google (according to Google's Terms and Conditions, to which Journalists must agree separately). This allows Truckers Savings Journalists to have an ongoing revenue stream.
The benefits to Truckers Savings Journalists include:
New articles and reviews published on Truck-Drivers-Money-Saving-Tips.com are automatically picked up on the site's RSS news feed and sent to the site's Truckers Savings Blog and social media accounts.
As articles and reviews are published, they are listed in the next issue of the free monthly Truck Drivers Money Saving Tips Email Newsletter, which has a growing number of subscribers. Newsletters are archived so that readers may click and read items that interest them.

To participate in the Truckers Savings Journalists Program:
As a Truckers Savings Journalist, you write news articles and/or reviews ("content") for publication on Truck-Drivers-Money-Saving-Tips.com. We publish your content along with your author byline and a Google AdSense ad from your AdSense account.
You don't pay us anything to get started, and we don't pay you anything for your articles and/or reviews. Instead, Google pays you directly for the AdSense earnings generated by your ads appearing nearest the top of your content.
When readers click your AdSense ad, earnings are generated for your Google AdSense account, which are paid to you according to Google's terms and conditions. (Neither NKBJ InfoNet, LLC nor Truck-Drivers-Money-Saving-Tips.com controls or influences Google's AdSense program, its earnings or payment schedule. We have found, however, that Google is very fair about paying on time.)
This set-up provides a small but ongoing revenue stream for your content, and it continues to generate revenue over time because your content stays posted on Truck-Drivers-Money-Saving-Tips.com indefinitely. The more content you contribute to Truck-Drivers-Money-Saving-Tips.com, the more AdSense earnings you can accumulate over time. Specific earning levels are not guaranteed, and they may vary widely based on the topic you write about, the quality of your writing, the behavior of readers, etc.
Under this program, either party can quit the arrangement at any time.
We require all Journalists to operate with professionalism, honesty and transparency.
We do not tolerate plagiarism or fraudulently clicking on your own AdSense ads. Engaging in either will result in immediate termination from the program.
Journalists covering a large topic area (such as preventive maintenance) may be joined by other Journalists on the same or a similar beat. Truck-Drivers-Money-Saving-Tips.com editors will coordinate article assignments to prevent overlapping. The first Journalist to pitch an article idea is the first one who will get the opportunity to write it.
Once an article is pitched and approved, we request timely writing and submission of it.
We seek two types of content: articles and reviews. Both must be of interest to professional truck drivers and geared specifically for helping them to save money or cover how they are being (or will be) forced to spend more money in their jobs.
All articles must be factual, accurate, true and hype-free.
There are two types of reviews that you may submit on our site:
In either case, reviews need to be thorough and detailed, based on your personal observations and experience.
The length of articles and free-form reviews needs to be a minimum of 400 words and a maximum of 2000 words.
We are NOT looking for opinion-only articles like commentary, satire pieces or general trucking articles.
Our overall focus is to help professional truck
drivers save money
and keep them from spending more money in their jobs. When in doubt,
