Earn money ($50-$1000) by writing article for these 100+ websites

Before you start, you might think why these websites pay you so much. You might also wonder what are the things they are looking for in return. So in this first chapter, we will cover why and what?

First Why??

Reasons are pretty simple. It reduces their staffing cost. Because they will have to hire fewer content writers and editorial team. Second, the most important reason is traffic. The writers when get published generally share those articles in many places. This creating buzz for the sites.

Another very important reason is quality. It is very obvious that any website cannot hire all the good content writers. But when they pay on per article basis they have an option to select the best one.

Now you understood why they pay. Let’s talk what they expect from you.

High-Quality Contents

These websites generally get tons of traffic in their niche. They have a loyal user base which they have created over the years. They will not allow any contents which are of inferior quality. Also, they have a luxury of selecting the best content. Thousands of content writer submit amazing content every month. They choose only the best. So if you are not able to create quality content, don’t write for them.

No plagiarism

These websites hate plagiarism. Whether big or small, every website wants to have their content unique. Unique contents help these websites to provide value to their users. So always check for plagiarism before submitting to these websites. There are plenty of free and paid tools available in the market. You can check Copyscape.

Accurate Grammar

Most of these websites are service native English countries like US or UK. So it is very important for all the freelancing writers to be 100% accurate with the grammar. Also, perfect grammar helps these website o rank higher on Search Engines. You can use free tools like Grammarly which will help you to get this done.

Readability

One of the thing which most of the freelancer writer have to keep in mind is readability. How well anyone reading your blog can understand your message. So once you have done drafting your first copy make sure you check on Hemingway app. It is a pretty cool app and helps you to format your entire article. It gives you the readability index which will help you to rate your article. Grading is a bit confusing for beginners there.

Make sure your Grade score is as low possible. It does not mean that your content is of poor quality. But it means that even grade 5 kid can understand your content. That shows the clarity of your content.

Your Personal Website

It is not must have criteria, but it always helps. While reviewing your content these websites will have more confidence in your work. They can check your website. See all the works you have done. They can also check the client section and portfolio section. Also, some of the websites allow you to put an author link. You can link this to your personal website. It will help you to get more direct clients which pay much higher.

Conclusion

I hope you got some valuable information in this tutorial. It was initially more than 100 website but then some of the websites stopped paying. So I have removed those websites. We will keep adding more websites and if you know any other please provide in the comment section below. We will definitely add them.

However, there are few things which you must keep in mind to maximize your profit from these sites.

1.   Read carefully what they want

In the tutorial, I have provided the glimpse of what they want. But it is always advisable to go and read in detail what they want. Also, read their article very carefully. It will help you to understand the basic nature of articles they approve. Read their complete policy.

2.   Be Patient

Most of these websites generally take time to review your content. They get lots of application every week. So check out their websites how they review and how much time they take.

3.   Don’t rely only on them.

This is the most important part. Many times you will find your content not getting approved or websites stop paying because they start getting lots of content. Use them as an extra source of income.

4.   Have your own blog.

It is always advisable to have your own blog. This has multiple advantages. First, it establishes you as a subject matter expert which will help your content in getting approved. Second, they can always come and check your blog to understand the depth of knowledge you have in a particular domain, Third, you can get lots of traffic and direct clients, which pay you more, from these websites. You can find step by step guide here.

Keep these four points in mind and you are good to go. Best of luck for your freelance writing.

If you have any query just ask below in the comment section and we will try to answer with utmost sincerity. If you liked the tutorial do comment below. We love appreciations.
