How Do I Make Money?

You get paid based on the number of views your articles receive. At the moment you will be payed $8 for every thousand views. While we will promote your content for you, the more you share your articles, and our site, the better you will do.

You can also make money through awards, and through getting links back to KidTown Melbourne.

What Are Awards?

UPDATE: KidTown Melbourne gives an award to every author's first article!

Awards are given to really high quality articles. If an editor thinks that you have done a brilliant job of an article then they can give you a bronze, silver or gold award. These each have a different monetary value: $2 for bronze, $5 for silver and $10 for gold.

Don't be upset if you don't get an award for every article: it doesn't mean that we don't love your writing, it just means that there's a lot of competition.

Can I Write For Kid Town Melbourne?

We'd love to have you write for us! Once you sign up to HubGarden and read through all the FAQ's just share an article. We'll have it edited and published within three business days.
[ back to the top ]

What Sort of Things Should I Write?

It's completely up to you. Obviously the content needs to be suitable for kids, but beyond that use your own judgement. We'll happily take reviews of places in Melbourne Kids might enjoy, as well as recipes kids can cook, and games they like to play.

If your kids have a favourite book or movie, why not write about that? It might help other parents find things for their kids to do.

Who Owns The Copyright of My Ideas and Articles?

KidTown Melbourne assumes exclusive copyright of any text and images uploaded as part of an article.

This means that any photos you upload must be taken by you personally or be in the common domain and attributed appropriately. If you are unsure leave a comment for your editor.

Facts and figures can be taken from other sites, but all text must be in your own words.

This also means that articles can't be published on personal blogs as well. We don't take duplicate content.

If you would like to retain copyright leave a message for the editor on the edit page. Payment will not be received for that article.

Is There a Standard Article Format?

We're happy for you to experiment with formatting, However, every article needs a minimum of one photo, and one out-bound link.

If you are unsure of the style of writing required, check out other articles on KidTown Melbourne. The best writers are readers too.

How Do I Include a Link?

To include a link in the text of your article use the following format:

[LINK www.thelinkurl.com The Link Text]

"The Link Text" will become the link that points to www.thelinkurl.com.

How Do I Include an Image?

Every post needs at least one image. Adding them is a simple process.

First you need to upload the images. Click on the 'Add Images' link, you can then add up to 4 images at one time. Make sure you update any changes made to your recipe before clicking the link.

Select the images from your harddrive using the Choose File button.

You can then also add any keywords for your image.

Once you have added all the files, click submit.

To use an image copy and paste the [IMAGEX] tag into the text. Replace X with the image number.

If I wanted to place my first image into the recipe, I would write [IMAGE1]. Make sure there isn't a space between IMAGE and the number.

If you want to add a caption, you just need to include it inside the tag like so: [IMAGEX My caption goes here.]

Note that the first image that you upload is always the thumbnail for your article, so make sure that the picture is attractive.

Is There Any Limit to What I Earn?

KidTown Melbourne doesn't impose any limit on what you earn, but there are some factors to consider.

Accounts are created at the end of each month that you have earnt more than $50. If you earn less than $50, the amount will be rolled over to next month, and so on.

There is no cap to how much you can earn per month, BUT to be paid more than $75 per month you need to either provide an ABN or a Statement Supplier Form

What is a Statement Supplier Form

You can find information from the ATO about Statement Supplier forms and if they are suitable for you [LINK http://www.ato.gov.au/Business/Australian-business-number/In-detail/Statement-by-a-supplier/Statement-by-a-supplier--not-quoting-ABN-to-an-enterprise/ here]

We can't give you any advise either way, but we will accept them if they are provided to us.
