What is the Big City Informer News Network
The Big City Informer News Network is a service owned and operated by Netventure24 LLC. We provide local city news for the biggest cities in the world. So far the news came from the few big agencies and some executive manager in his office tower somewhere (who secretly hates the Internet) decided what we get to know and what not. And then we all have to believe and follow that news. Do we really? Not anymore! On the Big City Informer News Network all the news come from the people who live and work in the big cities, and they should know best what happens there and what the latest breaking news are. Every city-page works with many different authors from this city who regularly publish their news and everybody can comment on those news. That way we are faster and more on the spot then the old news networks. And our authors can get a share of the ad-revenue of their articles.

And the Informer who got a comment from you on his news might just comment on your articles as well. Don’t forget to reply to the comments on your articles to keep the conversation going.
What is forbidden on the Network?

Are there any other rules or guidelines for the news I publish?
How can I earn if I am approved as a new author?
This is the fun part. The Revenue Sharing Program should not be the main reason that you write on our network, but it helps cover some of the expenses you might have. You will earn through your own Google AdSense account. All news published by you will have your own AdSense code in it. And the best news is – your Google AdSense revenue share will be a high 80% from all your articles.
How much can I earn?
The amount you will earn depends on the quality of your news and if it attracts many readers. The potential is unlimited since your revenue sharing code will stay in the article forever. So you will create a recurring income for yourself. Different topics will also attract different advertisements on your published news, and different “per-click” rates for those. Experiment and you will see. More info again can be found on the “Informers only” pages.
How will I get paid?
You get paid directly via your own Google AdSense account, which means it is unrelated to us and secure. There is no other payment option.
I wrote one article but there are no millions in my Google AdSense account yet. Why?
The most important thing to remember is that only regular publishing will bring you enough traffic. One or two news, maybe written and published all within 10 minutes, will obviously not bring you the success you are looking for. You need to write good content regularly that attracts enough readers first, then the revenue will follow. Don’t give up after the first few articles. Keep them coming and you will see …
How can I follow you on all the social media sites?
Well, that’s easy, all the Informer pages have links included. You can find us on Facebook, on Twitter, on YouTube, FriendFeed and MySpace, we have a Newsletter and you might find out some more places where we are. Keep on looking and stay tuned.
