TheStreet.com to pay contributors based on page views
TheStreet.com is expanding its contributor platform to deepen its coverage of markets as well as to expand the breadth of topics covered by the web site.
“While our principal focus is stocks and bonds, we’re looking for commentary, opinion and news about the most engaging, important and compelling companies and businesses in both the U.S. and the world,” said deputy managing editor Leon Lazaroff in am email to Talking Biz News. “In addition, we’re looking for insights and analysis on high-tech, media, the TV and film industries, the business of sports, the dynamics of the energy and banking sectors.”
TheStreet has been a springboard for dozens of journalists throughout the years. The list includes Herb Greenberg, Paul Kedrosky, James Altucher, Dave Kansas, Doug Kass and many others.
The pay for contributors is based on page views per article. A contributor that receives 20,000 page views for one article in a seven-day period will be paid $20. An author that receives 40,000 page views for one article in a seven-day period will be paid $40. And a contributor that writes an article that receives 60,000 page views in a week will be paid $50.
In an email on Monday, CEO Elisabeth DeMarse wrote, “Our goal is to attract smart, influential writers, analysts and money managers to augment the work of our newsrooms, and who want to be a part of our mission. This is an important initiative personally led by Jim Cramer to attract the best and brightest stock minds to join our publisher platform.”
