FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I have read all rules and t&c and I cant wait to start! What should I do?
Please send us 3 photographs of any craft work you have finished in the past along with a 200word writeup about the same. This is for us to get an idea about your crafting, photography and writing skills which are very important to get your tutorial published. We do not want to disappoint you by making you submit an tutorial and reject it later on grounds of poor photograph/writing skills etc.
I have sent sample writeup and photographs. What next?
You will be sent a confirmation email if we accept your writeup which means you have officially been inducted into team TCA and you can further propose any craft you intend to make by sending us an email. Please make sure you discuss your idea beforehand so that we can confirm if the same has been covered already or not.
How long will it take for my article to get published after submission?
Once you have emailed us your article, we will send you a confirmation email within 48hrs informing whether any changes need to be made. Once its resubmitted, the article will be published within 72hours.
Can I submit many articles at a time?
Of course you can but since we are a small team, we will take a little more time to process your articles if there are more at a time 🙂
My article has been published yaay! So when do I get my payment?
We maintain full records of all our contributers and their articles on up-to-date basis. The payment for all articles submitted in a month will be credited to your account by 3rd of the next month. Do not forget to submit your bank details along with photo ID copy for ease of verification and transfer of cash on time
I send out articles to you regularly and they get published as well. Is there a way I could be earning more than others?
We love regular writers and yes we will definitely give you perks for that! Also not to forget our sponsored products offer for regular contributers 🙂 .
I already own a craft blog. Can I still write for you?
Yes sure. We would love to collaborate with other crafters! Only one condition – the tutorial should already not have been published on your blog and if you are watermarking your images, thats fine but it should be as “XXXXX for thecraftyangels.com” We will not be paying you and you will not be eligible for the sponsored product programme but we will allow three link backs to your blog or to any referred article on your blog through the submitted post.
I have made things but they have already been covered as tutorials on TCA. Is there a way I can still earn?
Yes sure! Just because we have published a tutorial doesn mean you should not make the same! TCA is a platform to learn as well as share so please submit your works. Every 4 crafts completed based on any tutorial on TCA willl earn Rs100 provided one writer submits only one craft of the same type. For instance you cannot submit quilled beehive flower in 4 different colors as 4 products – it will be considered as one product.
