On December 12, 2012, we launched the Truckers Savings Journalists Program to enable truckers who share money saving tips on this site to earn money.
The 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.
See our news release.
This 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 hundreds of subscribers.
Newsletters are archived so that readers may click and read items that interest them.
Please review all of the details of the Truckers Savings Journalists program:
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.
