Writers can earn commission for the life cycle of their content. The Clutch Media group has the right to decommission any content that is plagiarized. As well as any content that utilizing bots or spyware.

We will identify any posts that are part of a corporate sponsorship and provide information about the nature of the sponsorship.

Writing positions are not full-time positions with Clutch Mag. Writers are independent contractors unless they are offered a full-time position.

How much do I get paid?

All new writers initially start on our revenue share system, which earns $5 for every 1,000 views the article generates vs the industry average of $2. After 5,000 views the writers earn 90% of the ad revenue generated on the article. $5 dollars for every 500 after that. There is no upper cap on and this applies to social media impressions, views, shares, and likes.

Below is quick example of how to think about the CPI (cost per impression)

150,000 views x $2/1000 views
=$300

Bonuses are also reward for article output volume and for our biggest influencers. This is awarded at the discretion of the Clutch Media group, this is not promissory.
