Melbourne Mums Group is an online community space where parents can share ideas and friendly advice about parenting, as well as share events and things to do with children in Melbourne and surrounding areas.
When you write for Melbourne Mums Group, you are paid in proportion to the number of people who read your articles.
Each article receives a CPM value on publication, determined by the editors score.
The CPM value is the amount you will receive for every 1000 readers. You do not have to wait for an article to receive 1000 readers to be paid, it's just how the CPM value is expressed. Your account is adjusted each time someone reads one of your articles.
A typical CPM value for an article will be around $10, or 1 cent per reader.
We also offer awards of $1, $5, and $10 for good articles that are well written with good (preferably original) photos.
You can view your account balance on by clicking on "My Account".
We encourage you to share your article with your own friends and family, to encourage more readers.
On the first of each month if your balance is over $50 an account is created and placed on your Accounts page.
To request payment of a monthly account click on the "details" link, and then "submit invoice".
Remember, in order to receive payment, you must first enter your payment information on your settings page.
Payment is made on the 1st of the following month as long as the invoice is submitted on or before the 10th. This delay is to allow for the time it takes to receive payments from advertisers.
For instance your January account would be created and placed on your accounts page on the 1st of February. If you submitted an invoice before the 10th of Feb payment would be made on the 1st of March. If the invoice was submitted after the 10th of Feb, payment would be made on the 1st of April.
If your balance is less than $50 on the 1st of the month, then it will be carried over to the following month.
Yes. At least one image should be included, which will help readers quickly understand the subject of your article.
If you're going to include a your own image, you want it to look as professional as possible.
There are some great tutorials available online, but there are a few simple things that can help:
* Good lighting. Don't use a flash, and try and use natural light.
* Keep your pictures clean. Try and keep other clutter out of the shot, and try and keep a clean background. Chopping boards and backdrops with too much going on can have a negative impact on your images.
You are not expected to be an expert photographer, but getting a good shot (especially for the main thumbnail) is very important.
If you cannot supply an image of your own, please be very careful when sharing images without permission.
