Listverse Review – Creating Top 10 Lists on Listverse

In this Listverse Review, we look at how you can leverage a great idea for a Top 10 List that you haven’t seen anywhere else and make fast money. So where do you turn?

To Listverse of course.

Listverse ReviewListverse owns the Top 10 list space and people turn to them for inspiration and bizarre Top 10 list ideas. But how can they be so original all the time? Well, they outsource the work to budding writers like you and pay $100 for the lists they love.

Now a $100 doesn’t seem like a lot for a 1500 word article but it’s about the going rate for professional writers because it’s really competitive out there.

But let’s not scoff at $100, it’s a great way to make money fast because if you pump out one of those lists every day, that’s a $700 paycheck right there.

So let’s take a look at the video…

Seems simple right?

Take a look at Listverse to get a feel for the types of content they are looking for and start brainstorming that next $100.

3 Tips for Effective Brainstorming

#1 – Set a Time Limit

Setting a time limit, also creates urgency and your brain will kick into top gear. Don’t try to brainstorm for more than 5 minutes as the ideas well will start to run dry.

#2 – Write Down Everything

Nothing is off limits in a brainstorming session. Write down everything that comes to mind and draw pictures if that helps. It might also help to get someone to write the ideas down, or call them out and record the session then take notes later.

#3 – Group the ideas when you’re finished

Once you’ve finished with the brainstorm session, group the ideas and discard the duplicates. Now check to see if you’ve got enough for a top 10 list and if you haven’t just add the extra ideas you need.

Another way to brainstorm is to create a visual Mind Map.

The great thing about Listverse is you’re really coming up with the idea and 150 words about each point in the list. They have professional editors who’ll give the words a tidy up and find some great images from the Internet to use in the article.

As an experienced blogger, I’d be the first to admit finding 10 decent images to use in an article of that size would sometimes take more time than the article itself. Of course, this depends on how fast you write.

This is really a great way to make fast money online, because you don’t need to find someone to buy your words. Listverse concise instructions for what they expect, so there’s no second-guessing.

Oh, and if you are a budding writer then the link back they’ll give you has the potential of being seen by millions of readers. That could also be a launch pad for more paid work.

If you love writing then follow your passion and try earning some extra money online using Listverse.


Listverse is a well-known Top 10 List website and makes money from publishing awesome lists. If you have a creative mind, you’ll be able to punch out a 1500 word article in a few hours. That could mean you’re getting around $50/hr. Not bad is it.

This money making idea has great potential, and you could even turn it into a full-time job. However, if you’re really good at it, then creating a top 10 list website of your own might be a smarter move.
