We’ll assess your story or content. If it’s newsworthy, one of our reporters will call you straight back. We’ll discuss how much it’s worth and talk you through the simple process.

Your story will be published only once you are happy to proceed. You’ll then track your payments through our Google backed payment tracking system every time your story is published.
How to make money selling your story to the press anonymously
We can also keep you anonymous – which is exactly what one woman wanted when she emailed us that she had found letters that Betty Broderick, an infamous murderer, sent from prison.
The woman had come across the letters in a storage unit she purchased in San Diego. She knew immediately that they were newsworthy.
She filled out a story form and one of our reporters called her to discuss the story.
See YOUR story online, in print… and even on television!
The woman sent us all the necessary images and after some fact checking, the story was ready to go.
The pictures were later used on the local CBS News in San Diego – meaning extra money for our source.
