Revise Pricing Structure
Since the PJ introduced fees, there has been a drop in the number of articles available on here. There are more low quality articles being offered and marketers maximum fees are usually too low to even consider. Most of the better marketers are now contacting bloggers directly to avoid paying any fees.
I am aware that you guys have invested a lot in this site and you deserve to make an income from it, but in it's current form the pay structure is killing off what is a great idea.

Whether or not the pricing structure is revised might be a moot point.
The truth of the matter is more likely there needs to be an adjustment in how the PostJoint principals market their platform to potential marketers. In another comment, someone mentioned the increasingly low-quality, cookie-cutter articles being placed on the service along with the (surprise!) horribly low fees being offered.
To me, that says that PostJoint is not seeking out serious marketers who (1) want their clients' content placed on quality sites and who (2) know the value of such content.
This is sad because the effect is that serious bloggers who thought PostJoint might be a viable way to earn money are deciding that it is not and are not willing to risk their reputations in the wider content marketing world. Bloggers and writers in the U.S. (especially) will not place $10 content on their blogs.
The pricing structure is fair but the metrics and the marketing pool are also at fault here.
