Tomorrow the new “Article Cash” system will be released where I’ll be providing Content Spooling Network members at-cost usage of my Amazon Mechanical Turk interface for ghostwriting articles.
I had previously released a video called “One Cent Words” (available to CSN members) where I show how to use Mechanical Turk for ghostwriting. This video caused quite a reaction of excitement from those who watched it.
I know a few people have opened up a Mechanical Turk account and started submitting ghostwriting requests…
So why would you want to pay for access to CSN’s interface into Mechanical Turk when you can do it yourself?
There are 3 primary reasons:
1. Not long after I released the One Cent Words video, someone overseas informed me that only persons with US bank accounts can access Mechanical Turk to create requests (requests are called “HITs” for “Human Intelligence Task”). So unless you’re an American, this service is completely unavailable to you directly.
2. As mentioned in an earlier post, we create 100 or more individual HITs for each full service ghostwritten article (original article plus 3 rewrites). In order to produce reliable results, after every individual HIT is first reviewed by our automated system, we create 2 more HITs for a humans to review the content. If they disagree, a 3rd HIT is created as the tie-breaker. We do this for every article and every paragraph of every rewrite.
Needless to say, the time it would take to create each of these HITs manually would be overwhelming. Indeed, Amazon’s system was primarily designed so that computers could interact with it, not people.
3. Are you forgetting the primary benefit of CSN? Ghostwritten articles are automatically added to your CSN member account for push-button publishing to an impressive number of related network sites and the top external article directories.
So not only does your CSN membership give you access to at-cost ghostwritten articles, but you get access to a streamlined publishing system that has been achieving impressive results.
If you’re already a member, expect this new functionality to go live Friday at noon Eastern.

Update: I’ve been informed that Mechanical Turk doesn’t require you be a US Citizen, only that you have a US bank account. While it may be next to impossible for an average non-citizen to get a US bank account, international businesses are apparently able to do this.
