When you create video programs for SSWUG.ORG, you can do so for webcasts/webinars, expos, virtual events and/or for use on the site. Your materials are provided in the event(s)
as applicable, and on the site for Pro members. We pay based on your overall "Share of Voice" - SOV. This gives you complete control over your payment because it's based entirely
Here's how it works. We establish a funding pot each month based on Pro memberships. That money is set aside for your payments. At the end of each month, we determine out of all of the
minutes of video watched in the month, what percentage of time it was your videos being watched. We use that percentage and apply it to the funding pot. You get the resulting
amount of money from the funds. It's pretty straightforward. The more people watch your videos, the longer they watch them, the more they interact, the more you earn.
To get started, click on Content Creation Home above and select the video tool. You'll be able to upload your video into the
system for review and you'll be all set.
All videos submitted must be exclusive to SSWUG.ORG and become the property of SSWUG.ORG.
You are producing original, exclusive content. By providing your content as an exclusive to SSWUG.ORG you'll receive a one-time payment based on the complexity and length of the article you submit and that we publish.

We offer standard payment by check. We can also pay by PayPal. If you would like
to have your funds wired, we can do this however, a $20 wire fee per transaction
(our actual cost) will be deducted from the total amount due you. If you'd like,
we can collect monthly payments until they reach a $200 threshhold and then pay
in a single payment (less the wire fee) to minimize the impact of the fee.
We pay all authors on or about the 15th of the month following publication of your
article on the site. YOUR ARTICLE MUST BE ACCEPTED, PUBLISHED AND LIVE ON SSWUG.ORG
IN ORDER TO RECEIVE PAYMENT. We reserve the right to schedule (and re-schedule) the publication
of your article as necessary to support the editorial scheduling needs of the site.
Payment is based on actual and final publication and promotion in the newsletter
on the site, not based on submission for consideration. NOT ALL ARTICLES ARE ACCEPTED FOR PUBLICATION.
You will know when your article is accepted for publication as you will receive
an email assigning the base fee and moving the article from editorial to scheduling.
After it is scheduled, you'll receive an additional email indicating the publication
date for the article. This date, which changes only very, very rarely, is the date
that your payment will be based on. If it is necessary to change the date, you will
receive an email with the date change notification.
