Review: NewsCastic appears to be a broker of mainly listicles — top reasons to ditch your car; 10 cool things you can do on your phone; 5 ways to make the summer better for your cat. It doesn’t matter if you write long, short, cleverly or poorly, the payment — if accepted — is $10 for beginners and a bit more as you gain “credentials.” How do you gain credentials? You share your post and hope it goes viral.

From their FAQs: Fair NewsCastic Story ($10-$15) =Hundreds of shares; Good NewsCastic Story ($15-$25) =Thousands of shares; Great NewsCastic Story ($25-$40) =Tens of thousands of shares; Excellent NewsCastic Story ($40-$50) = Hundreds of thousands of shares.

So….if you want to earn a whopping $50, you need to get people to share your post hundreds of thousands of times. If you can do that, you can earn a lot more than $50. Our advice: Seek work elsewhere. You are likely to find better paying gigs through free job boards at ProBlogger.com and FreelanceWriting.com
