About Us

Write on Elephant, Change our World.

Our “Ecosystem” makes it easy to Get your message out to thousands—& get paid.

Elephant was one of the first major sites to pay our best, consistent writers. But it was always hard to measure “best.” Now, we are introducing payouts for the top 25 articles on Elephant based on their Ecosystem Score—determined by readers, editors—and by writer’s communities. When two writers had the same score, the total readers acts as a tie breaker.
