If you want to make money working at home as a writer, there are plenty of choices out there for you. Here is part 2 of getting paid upfront writing articles.
Consumer Research pays at least $350 per article and while this sounds like a great deal of money, it is, but there is a great deal of research you need to do on these articles as well. They are very strict and very picky on what they accept for articles. To apply with them, there is an application that you must complete first. If they like what’s on the application, you will be invited to complete a two-part test. The first part of the test requires that you do some research on a product, while the second part requires you to do the actual article. You are paid $100 for the test only if you are accepted as a writer for them.
Copy Press hires two types of writers: general and specialty. General writers will write content in either infographics, product copy or share bait. Specialty writers can only write in their specialty area. You will have to show them that you are an expert in your field by completing an application and providing writing samples. For both writing genres, you will fill out a profile and other necessary forms. As assignments come in, project managers match these assignments with the writers. If you are one of those writers, an email will be sent to you upon which you can accept or reject the assignment. Payments are made by PayPal or direct deposit on the 1st and the 15th of each month and payment depends on the assignment.
Crowd Content hires writers to produce website content, white papers, product descriptions, eBooks, blog posts, press releases, SEO content and newsletters. Depending on your writing level, you are paid between 1.2 cents per word and 6.6 cents per word. There are also bonuses offered if you complete your article in within a fast turnaround time. Once you submit your article, the client has three days to accept it or else it will automatically be accepted by the system. Payments are made every month by PayPal as long as you have $10 in your account. You can claim one article at a time to start but can work your way up to claiming five at a time.
Demand Media hires writers to produce articles for various sites like Garden Guides, LiveStrong and Trails. The pay will vary according to your assignment, but you can average $7.50 to $15.00 per article as a new writer. They pay every Tuesday and every Friday by PayPal for all accepted articles. The articles you write will vary in length from 150 words to 500 words. Once you are accepted as a writer, there is a pool of articles for you to choose from and you can claim 10 articles at a time. To apply with Demand Media, you need to send them your resume and writing sample. If they accept you as a writer, you are required to first complete three trial articles before you are ultimately accepted. You are paid for the trial articles, regardless if you are accepted or not.
Hire Writers will pay you to write articles and the pay amount will depend on what your writing level is and what the specific assignment is. The beginner level pays around $2 for 150 words whereas the expert level pays you over $10 for 150 words. There are four levels of writing with Hire Writers: beginner, average, skilled and expert. The company pays every Friday by PayPal as long as you have a minimum of $10 in your account. You don’t have to take any type of test with them, just make an account and create your profile.
