IAC Gets Into The Farming Biz

IAC has “quietly launched” a content farm-style company that hires writers for $10-$25 per article, reports AdAge.

“The Writer’s Network” appears to be commissioning content for one IAC property so far, and that’s Home and Garden Ideas.

So far the article topics are pretty much what you’d expect: How to Aerate Your Lawn pays $17.50, while Pet Birthday Party pays $20.

According to the site’s FAQ, even IAC employees may participate, “though you should first check with your supervisor and, if he/she approves your participation in The Writers Network, then you will need to apply through the standard process for all writers.”
