CCN.com is a different news platform where we focus on highly self-motivated individuals that are eager to improve their skills and output as digital journalists and editors. CCN.com does not have offices around the world, which minimizes the fixed costs. This allows us to spend money on what matters, our team, and our human capital.

Numbers and stats drive CCN.com. It is highly competitive, and only a handful of writers get through the first month at CCN.com. While it is hard, it is also rewarding for the writers and editors that can thrive working for CCN.com. We reward journalists with a hefty bonus for each article that drives traffic to CCN.com.

At CCN.com, we have a flat hierarchy where we all communicate on Slack. The possibilities for journalists on CCN.com are endless. We adjust your PPW according to your performance. The more you perform, the higher you are paid per word &, the higher your bonuses will be.

Writers on CCN.com will learn how to drive traffic, how to write for the digital age, how to engage readers. Longterm writers got access to our Google Analytics and can follow real-time traffic of their stories.

At CCN.com, you can get a full-time position, part-time position, and you can be promoted to become a full-time editor if it is a fit.

If you perform, you’ll be rewarded.

Our highest paid journalists earn anywhere from $7,000 to $12,000 per month. This is expected to increase in the years to come.
