How UK Writers Can Make Money Writing Articles
Want to try earning online through article writing, but not sure which sites pay out to British writers? An online content creator based in the UK shares her recommendations.
Earning an online income if you are in the uk.
Can you make money online writing articles if you live in Britain? As a UK-based writer, that was a question I asked myself when I first began exploring online income opportunities a couple of years ago. Since that time I've signed up with many different article writing sites and have made money from a few of them, though some more than others.
It's easy to find guides to online writing opportunities but not so easy to find out which ones will pay you as a British writer. And there's nothing worse than signing up for a site, full of enthusiasm, only to discover that you are ineligible for payments. I've put together this guide to send you in the right direction, including only sites and platforms that offer genuine opportunities and will pay UK authors and content creators.
Article copyright ©WordCustard, June 2011
Writing for Wizzley
Uk writers say yes to wizzley.
I'll start this tour of sites accepting British article writers with Wizzley.com. Why? Because you are reading this page on Wizzley!
What it is: Wizzley is a new writing community which shares revenue generated from advertisements and affiliate links with its writers.
How it works: When you join Wizzley you need to enter some details that will link your account to a range of the most popular affiliate schemes (i.e. companies that pay out if someone clicks on a link or ad and buys a product). You can join Wizzley without doing this, but you won't start to earn until you enter this information.
Your earnings on Wizzley are split with the site owners so that 50% of the time your own links are used and you receive the income from resulting sales, and 50% the site's links are shown and they receive any income from sales during that time. If you write over 50 quality articles your percentage increases to 55%.
The schemes Wizzley links to are Amazon.com, AllPosters.com, Zazzle.com and Google AdSense.
How you receive your pay: You receive the income you have earned through your Wizzley articles direct from your affiliate schemes. And yes, all of them will pay out to UK writers. See the list below for more details.
Resources for Earning on Wizzley
Join Wizzley You can join Wizzley right here. It's a fun and friendly site, easy to use.
Join the Amazon Affiliate Program Sign up with Amazon to promote their products. Sales are made via Amazon.com who will pay British writers either by cheque (in dollars) which you can cash at your UK bank, or by gift card (which can be used to order stuff from Amazon.com but watch out for delivery charges).
Join the AllPosters Affiliate Program AllPosters allows you to use their posters as images in your Wizzley and other articles. As these images are clickable links, you can earn money if someone clicks through and buys one as a poster. AllPosters will pay you by cheque (in US dollars).
Become a Zazzle Affiliate If you sign up as an affiliate with Zazzle you can promote their products on Wizzley and other sites. Again, this is a useful way to find images that add interest to your pages and also offer you the chance to make a little extra money if someone buys the product. Zazzle will pay you in £GBP if you choose it as your currency there. They pay via PayPal.
How to Google Adsense Signing up for Google AdSense can be tricky so I've linked here to a guide from another Wizzley author which goes into it in more depth. The good news is that, once you reach a £60 payment threshold, Google AdSense will post a cheque in £GBP to your home address.
Becoming a Writer on Squidoo
Squidoo has many british writers.
I've been on Squidoo longer than any other site and have seen the most success there so far.
What it is: Squidoo is a content creation site where you write pages (called 'lenses') and receive a share of the site's ad revenue plus can earn from your own affiliate links.
How it works: Squidoo is a great place to start if you are new to writing for the web. You don't need to be a member of any other programme, you simply join Squidoo and they share the ad revenue with you. As you become more experienced, you can begin to use your own affiliate links too.
The shared ad revenue is divided between writers (lensmasters) according to how well their lenses have performed. It can be difficult for a new writer to break into the top paying tier and takes perseverence and a willingness to learn.
How you receive your pay: You get paid by Squidoo by the 15th of each month, and pay relates to the month before last (e.g. in June you are paid for the performance of your work in April). Squidoo will pay you in US dollars via PayPal.
Join Squidoo There are a number of successful and new writers from the UK on Squidoo. The site is quirky and particularly good at guiding new writers through the process of getting pages published on the site.
Add to Your Income with AllPosters
Write for zujava, a growing content site paying uk and international writers.
I like Zujava's quality standards. It promises to be a successful site.
What it is: Zujava is another website where you create media-rich articles on things you care about. Ideas include how-to guides, duels, or product recommendation pages.
How it works: Signing up couldn't be easier -- all you need to do is enter your Paypal payment email so that when it's time for payouts you will receive your share. After joining, you get to write 3 pages (a page on Zujava is a 'leaf' in keeping with the cute wildlife theme). These need to be approved. This is a good thing as it keeps site quality high, and you don't need to worry if you are a native English-speaker or have good English language skills, plus a commitment to writing useful content. Scammers, spammers, article spinners and coloring page image thieves (it's a banned topic) need not apply.
Like on Squidoo, the Google Adsense income generated by page views on the site as a whole is divided into tiers. Unlike Squidoo, the tiers are split by percentage so always have room to grow. You are paid according to which percentage of the tier income you fall into.
How you receive your pay: You will be paid by PayPal, where you can then convert dollars to pounds.
Create a free account on Zujava Get in early on a fun new site that shares its earnings with its writer. Zujava is easy to use and not yet over-crowded with competition.
How About Writing for HubPages?
Brits can be authors on hubpages too.
Yes, I've written for HubPages too, although have not been prolific over there.
What it is: HubPages is another site that is a lot like Wizzley and Squidoo. It has been around a few years and some UK writers have enjoyed success there. Unfortunately it is suffering right now from the Panda/Farmer algorithm change by Google. While HubPages is down, it is not yet out and is worth considering if you are a Brit looking to make money writing articles online.
How it works: You publish articles and HubPages shares the ad revenue with you based simply on a percentage. Some prefer this to the secret and sometimes controversial payment system used by Squidoo. You have less opportunity for making direct affiliate sales on HubPages, however.
What I do love about HubPages is the contests. I don't know if they still run these but in the past there have been daily cash prizes to be won, with larger weekly prizes. An element of peer judging does mean popular people have a better chance, especially at larger prizes, but it's possible for new writers to win. Prize payments are sent to your PayPal account in US dollars.
How you receive your pay: HubPages income goes direct to your Google AdSense account. Income from any affiliate sales you make goes to those accounts.
Sign Up for HubPages Take a look at HubPages and give it a go. It's quite a straightforward site to use and there are active forums if you need more help.
BrightHub Takes On UK Writers
Another site that accepts british authors.
I wrote for BrightHub for a brief period but am no longer active there.
What it is : BrightHub is unlike the above sites in that it has in the past had a tight focus first on Technology and Education, though has recently branched out into other topic areas. BrightHub was hard hit by the Google Panda / Farmer update and made some unpopular decisions in an attempt to recover.
How it works: You have to go through an approval process to write for BrightHub. If you write well and have some knowledge in one of their topic areas, I suspect your chances of being approved are good. You also have more freedom once you are a member to apply to write for other 'channels' than those for which you were approved. You do agree to a rather official contract when you join BrightHub which among other things prevents you from discussing how the site works in too much detail. BrightHub make an upfront payment for your work and will also pay you a small residual each month. You cannot use your own affiliate links.
How you receive your pay: You receive BrightHub income in US dollars via PayPal. You need to have made a minimum of 5$ in a month to receive a pay out. BrightHub used to pay $10 an article. This has recently increased to $15 but they have become much stricter on what they will publish. There are fewer opportunities than before and you must write 750 words as a minimum.
Write for BrightHub It used to be that you had to apply to write for BrightHub. It appears that now anyone can write there simply by joining the site. Their main topics are Techonology, Science, Education, Business, and Health.
Forget Get Rich Quick!
Making money writing articles online takes time and effort, no matter where in the world you are. There are a lot of people all working towards the same goal. Some will help you but be wary of those who charge you for information that you can often find for free.
Have patience, write well, and with time and a little luck you may find yourself making an income you can be proud of through your online article writing.
Other Content Sites That Say They Pay UK Writers
Always double check details on the site itself -- terms and conditions can change.
Demand Studios UK and Canadian citizens are eligible to apply. You select from a list of titles and write the article, which will be reviewed by an editor before publication.
Constant Content You either write an article to match a requested title, or simply write articles you think you can sell on topics of your choice. You set the price and decide on the rights. There is a strict editorial process before you can put them for sale and the site will take a share of your income.
DevHub A 'gamified' web page publishing platform that pays you a percentage of ad revenue generated from ads that you add to your webpages. Details on the actual split seem hazy. You receive a monthly payout as long as you have a minimum of $5 US Dollars and can be made by cheque or PayPal. Payment is within 45 days.
Bukisa Bukisa is a site I've heard of but not looked into in any detail. However, Mike Craggs mentions them in the comments of this page and explains that they pay via AdSense, taking a 40% share for themselves.
Triond By now, if you've clicked on some of the other links, these sites will have started to look familar. Triond share ad revenue with you 50/50. Mike informs me that Triond pay via PayPal.
Xomba I have a Xomba account but hadn't initially add them to the list as I'm not aware of ever having made any money there. On the other hand, I've added very little to my account over there so that's probably my own fault. Xomba will pay you via your Google AdSense account.
Helium Thanks to Rich for suggesting Helium, which I've heard of but have never personally looked into as a source of writing income. You earn from Helium by sharing a percentage of ad revenue, plus there are other earning opportunities for experienced members. I've seen discussions on the site forum that suggest that non-American writers are at a disadvantage when it comes to the topics on offer.
Ask a Question or Leave a Tip for Other UK Writers Earning Online
I had not heard of most of those before. Thanks for the list!
I joined Bukisa, but seem to have difficulty uploading stuff, and have given up until they sort themselves out. Quite a lot of people there have good ideas but not particularly good English, so they appear less authoritative. Maybe they need tighter monitoring to make sure people proof read their stuff more carefully
I write for a few of these sites. You have given good advice to caution that making an income takes a lot of time and effort. Writing online is not for the impatient, and you'll need another income source for the first couple of years anyway.
Great resource, Nicki. I will have to keep these in mind for future use :)
Even though, I am not a Brit writer it is interesting to see what you have to do differently in this business. You have to look at different trends too, like Not the American Girl Co.
Thank you. Now I'm established on Squidoo, I'm starting to write more on Wizzley. I might give Hubpages a whirl at some point so thanks for the info.
What a useful list. I wish I'd found something like this when I was starting out.
Now added, Rich. Many thanks. I'll keep on updating this page.
As a fellow UK writer I have also dabbled with all of the websites that you describe in detail. I think that Helium may also be worth adding a link to. :)
Thanks for the feedback everyone and I much appreciate the additional information, Mike. My 'other content sites' section was only a draft that I was looking to add to after doing some research... you're a step ahead of me which is most helpful! I'll add them in right now.

Where Every Penny Counts
Earn Money Writing for Skint Dad
We are not currently looking for any new contributors at this time.
Whether you are a blogger, seasoned writer, someone starting out, you have a killer story you want to share or your head is jam-packed with money saving and money making ideas then this is just your thing.
Skint Dad is looking for freelance writers to provide fresh, unique and off-the-wall ideas for saving and making money.
Whether it’s from a personal experience or a subject you are both knowledgeable and passionate about, we’d love to hear from you.
Is there a story that we haven’t covered? Perhaps you have a new angle on an old idea? Drop us an email with your pitch to [email protected]
Why Skint Dad?
All too often the topic of personal finance is dry and boring – snore!
We’re not like that!
Skint Dad’s aim is to be helpful, informative and jargon-free. We are excited about empowering our readers to save money, make more money and manage their money better in an engaging and lighthearted manner.
What we’re looking for
We are looking for freelance writers who can produce fun, engaging and original content that suits the tone of our site.
We want articles that provide practical strategies and insights, proving to readers that saving money, earning more and dealing with finances can be done by anyone and everyone.
Where possible, posts can include personal stories and real-life examples on how you have overcome debt, problem spending, making great savings or side hustles.
The tips, pointers and tactics within the content need to be transferable into real-life situations. It’s okay telling someone how they can save £10,000 per year but is it realistic?
Posts need to be a minimum of 600 words and written in a conversational and friendly style.
This blog and the majority of the readers are based in the United Kingdom so the content on the whole needs to be geared towards a UK audience (we watch films, not movies; use mobiles, not cells, and we, unfortunately, can’t double up on vouchers!)
What we’re not looking for
- You will not be able to include your own affiliate links.
- If you are an SEO company or business looking to promote your company this is not for you so please don’t try.
- If your pitch is “how to save money in 5 simple steps” it’s not going to be published as it’s too generic. Be creative!
Do I get paid?
You have two choices:
1) We will pay £20* for each article that is published on Skint Dad.
2) You will be able to link to your website or social media account in your bio, and as our site currently receives around 250,000 page views monthly, you’ll likely receive traffic and new visitors back to your site. We’ll also be sharing the post across our social channels so there will be plenty of exposure.
*Paid writers do not get a link in their bio.
Sound right up your street? I hope so!
Make sure you have browsed the current content on Skint Dad to check we haven’t already covered it (although you may want to cover the same thing from a different angle) and then contact editor @skintdad.co.uk with your pitch in the first instance.
This is to make sure the topic is relevant for the readers and will save you writing a whole piece if it’s not what we’re looking for.
When emailing us with your ideas it is also worth providing links to work you’ve previously written (if you have any).
When the idea has been agreed (by us and you), then it’s simply a matter of getting fingers to the keyboard. Please submit the first draft to editor @skintdad.co.uk. We will create the images so don’t worry about that.
We may edit the content and title to suit the style and help with SEO, we may add an affiliate link or other useful and relevant links before we publish your post. We will then pay you via PayPal at the end of the month.
If all goes well then we may ask you to write again more regularly, thus increasing your own income.
We look forward to receiving your pitches!
Ricky and Naomi

11 ways to make money from writing
by Laura Brown in Make Money
Updated by Nele van Hout 28 June 2022
Writing is such a rewarding hobby, not least when you start making money from it. Below, we'll go through 11 of the best ways to get paid to write.
Credit: Zamurovic Photography, photoDiod – Shutterstock
Whether you're writing to make some extra pocket money or you're working towards a long-term career goal, it can take a lot of work and effort. But, it's so, so worth it.
Writing is a particularly good way to make money at uni. You'll earn an income while gaining experience that'll come in very handy when you start applying for graduate writing jobs .
To help you turn your wordy skills into well-deserved cash, we've put together a list of the top ways to make money from writing.
How to get paid to write
Here are the best ways to earn money as a writer:
Make money reviewing films, products, music and more
It's very easy to get paid to write reviews when you know how.
When it comes to writing reviews, you might think of full-time jobs that require loads of previous experience, like professional TV and film reviewing .
But, you can actually start making money from reviews quickly by signing up for a few rewards websites. On these sites, you could find yourself reviewing anything! Gadgets, music, stationery – you name it.
For example, on Slicethepie, you can earn cash from writing short reviews of fashion items and songs. All you need to do is sign up and you can get started immediately.
Or, if you register to become a product tester or a paid survey site panel member you could end up making money by reviewing products you'd otherwise pay to buy. This includes things like technology, clothes and cosmetics.
Write articles for money
Journalism is a brilliant career route for anyone with a love and talent for writing. We really recommend going for it if it's what you want to do.
It's important to recognise, though, that it is a competitive industry. It has a reputation for involving a fair amount of low-paid work and unpaid internships for young writers who are just starting out.
However, while it's not always easy, it is possible to make money as a student journalist .
You don't necessarily need to be studying journalism to start getting paid to write articles. But, you do need to be a strong writer with a great eye for stories and brilliant attention to detail.
It's best to build up your writing portfolio. To do so, you could contribute to the student newspaper or magazine at your university. It's also a good idea to start a blog (more on this later ) to showcase your interests and writing ability.
Once you've got a solid portfolio, you can try pitching article ideas to commissioning editors. These are journalists who commission articles for their publication. If they like your article ideas, they could hire you to write for them on a freelance basis .
The amount you'd earn per article will vary depending on the publication and length/style of the piece. However, you could be looking at £100+ for commissioned articles in top papers.
Pitching freelance article ideas to editors
Ready to start pitching article ideas to magazines? It's worth following the commissioning editors of your favourite publications on Twitter and finding them on LinkedIn .
And, if you fancy writing something directly related to your degree, you could try pitching article ideas to trade magazines that cover news about a particular industry. A quick Google search for ' [industry] trade magazine ' will help you find ones that are relevant to your studies and interests.
Editors will often tweet about the themes or topics they're interested in at that time. If you see a call out for an article that you'd have the experience and skills to write, plan out the pitch carefully, directly tailored to the publication, and email it to the commissioning journalist as soon as you can (ideally within an hour).
You don't always need to wait for editors to post call-outs for articles before you pitch to them. But, it helps your chances of getting commissioned if you have a clear idea of the kind of thing they're looking for.
When pitching, try to keep your emails short but persuasive , highlighting why it's right for the publication . It's also a good idea to add a link to your online blog or website so editors can see what you can do.
It's best not to send complete articles along with your pitches for a number of reasons.
Editors won't have much time when reading pitches, and they may ask you to go in a different direction with the article. There's even a risk they could run an article with similar ideas themselves, so don't send them too much too soon.
Remember that not every pitch will be successful but, ultimately, you shouldn't give up . Learn from the rejections, improve your pitches, and keep trying until you start getting commissioned to write paid articles.
Sell your revision notes

If you're great at making clear and concise lecture notes , you could actually make a bit of income from your revision.
In our guide to making money , we recommend a couple of sites to use if you'd like to sell your notes to other students. On these sites, it's usually free for you to list your notes. But, some companies might charge a fee for any sales made.
Enter writing competitions to win cash prizes
It might seem pretty daunting to enter writing competitions. But, someone's got to win. Why not you?
It will look great on your CV if you can say that you won a writing competition or award, or that you were highly commended. Plus, it's also a rather lovely boost to your student bank balance if you receive a monetary prize.
Writing competitions and awards can come with cash prizes of hundreds, if not thousands , of pounds.
See this list of journalism awards and this list of creative writing competitions .
How to win writing competitions
These tips will help to increase your chances of winning writing competitions and awards:
- Be creative – To impress competition judges, you'll need to stand out from the first line of your entry. Try to start with something surprising. If you can, consider playing around with conventional writing techniques and present your ideas in an unusual, memorable way.
- Read previous winning entries – Try to find winning entries from previous years to see the styles and arguments that have previously been successful. It's still important to write creatively. But, keep in mind the key features that judges might be looking for in an award-winning piece of writing.
- Check the competition T&Cs – This is so important. Before you even start writing an entry for a competition, make sure you're eligible to apply. Some competitions might specify you need to be within an age range, from a particular area or have a certain level of writing experience (e.g. be a published writer).
- Proofread – Always check through your work several times before submitting it. It might help to read it aloud to highlight typos or inconsistencies in your argument. Also, ask family and friends to read through it too in case they spot something you've missed.
Make money writing translations
One great way to make money from your language skills is to write translations.
There will be plenty of businesses willing to pay you to translate text for them on a freelance basis.
Monetise your blog
Turning your blog from a passion project into a money-making venture takes some time and effort. But, the work can pay off (literally).
When monetised, your website will act as an online portfolio of your work, while letting you earn some cash.
There are lots of little changes you can make to your blog to start earning money from it. These include affiliate marketing , advertising, sponsored content and more.
One site you could use to create your website is Bluehost (get a 70% discount and a free domain name using this link). You can find out more about this in our guide to setting up a website in 20 minutes.
Earn money writing social media content

Writing social media content can be a great money earner. It's ideal for anyone with a strong understanding of how to build online followings and create viral social posts.
Love writing and reading? You could try to make money on BookTok . When making TikTok videos about books, write captions that are eye-catching and engaging. If you get the attention of brands, this could lead to lucrative sponsorship opportunities.
Another option is to try affiliate marketing .
We explain it in detail in our full guide to making money from affiliate marketing . As a brief overview, it involves adding a particular type of link to your social media posts when you share a product or service.
When people use that link to make a purchase, you can earn a small commission (with no impact on the buyer).
You could also get paid to create social media content for businesses . This could be through writing their tweets, crafting engaging Instagram captions or tweaking the bios on their social channels.
To do this, it's worth reaching out to small businesses directly. You can use your own successes on social media as examples of why they should hire you on a freelance basis as their social media assistant.
Become a copywriter
If you've already been looking into different types of writing jobs, you've no doubt come across adverts for copywriting roles. This is more of a long-term career option rather than a quick way to make money.
At the time of writing, Glassdoor says that the average salary of copywriters is around £29K (over £10k less than technical writers ).
If you're unsure what copywriters do, here's an overview.
What is copywriting?
A key part of copywriting is creating written content for a business, both for online and offline resources, that reflects the brand's identity .
As a copywriter, you could be writing content that will be seen by customers, clients or even other staff members within the company. Regardless of who reads the content, the voice of your brand will run throughout it.
When you're writing content that will be seen by customers, this is known as business-to-consumer copywriting (or B2C ). And, when you're writing for a target audience of other companies, this is called business-to-business copywriting ( B2B ).
For an example of copywriting, have a look at the written content on ASOS . The tone of writing in their product descriptions, confirmation emails and newsletters is fun, informal and focused on a young audience.
Or, as another example, the dating app Bumble has a strong brand identity running through its advertising, notifications, emails and blog posts. It's focused on being witty, empowering and positive. Again, copywriters play a massive role in this.
It's quite a skill to adapt your usual style of writing to take on a business's individual voice. However, it's definitely something you can develop with practice.
Write a book
Writing a book is definitely not the quickest way to make money on this list. Nor is it the simplest. But it is possible (and perhaps not quite as difficult as you might think).
There are so many different things you could write a book about. You could write a fictional novel or collate a series of poems/short stories as a book. You could even write something non-fiction, like an advice guide for students , based on your own uni experiences.
You may want to go down the route of finding a writing agent and getting a publishing deal. But remember that this isn't the only way to make money from a book.
eBooks are pretty easy to self-publish and can see you making a passive income from your writing. It's a good way to publish a book and start earning cash from sales pretty quickly.
Work as a technical writer

Wondering what a technical writer does? The exact nature of the work would vary depending on the specialisms of the company and the industry you're working in. But, generally, you'll be expected to explain complex technical info in clear, concise texts.
A common task for technical writers is writing instruction manuals. To do this, you'd need to do thorough research around the processes you're writing about. Then, you'd have to explain how they work in a way that's easy for the target audience to follow.
You'll likely need a fair amount of work experience as a writer to get into this career. To get started, you can try some of the other suggestions in our list to build up your writing portfolio.
Once you're working as a technical writer, you could be looking at an average salary of around £40K according to Glassdoor.
Make money as a ghostwriter
A lot of people have great writing skills, but don't fancy the public attention that writing can bring. If that's you, ghostwriting could be ideal.
As a ghostwriter, you'd be working with others to help them write texts (e.g. books or speeches), but you wouldn't be publicly credited as the author.
It's difficult to say what salary you could expect to receive as a ghostwriter. It depends heavily on the industry you work in and the clients you write for. But, for big, high-profile writing projects, it could be pretty lucrative.
As with technical writing, you'll need writing experience to start ghostwriting full-time. It will help if you can develop a strong portfolio to boost your writing credentials.

Online freelance writing is a great way to earn additional or full-time income, and you don’t even need to leave your home to do it.
There are countless opportunities out there, you can work as little or as much as you want and you can make in excess of £100,000 a year if you follow the right advice and work hard.
You don’t necessarily need previous experience as long as you have some natural writing talent. You just need to work hard, remain professional and be willing to test yourself. There are also a few things you need to know before you begin.
What is Freelance Writing?
What are freelancing platforms, what do you need to get started, what will it cost me, what can i earn, getting started on upwork, setting up your profile, finding jobs, staying employed, long-term clients and long term success, alternative income streams.
Simply put, a freelance writer is someone who writes for money but isn’t tied to a single organisation. A freelance writer offers his or her services to anyone who needs a job done, getting paid for that job and then moving onto the next one.
It’s often said that freelancers are their own boss and that no one dictates what they do. This is true, to an extent. But freelancers actually have many different bosses. And they need to meet deadlines and to work to specifications just like any other employee.
A freelance writer can be tasked with completing a number of jobs. The most common job is simple content writing. There are are over a billion websites out there and they all need content. A freelance writer is often the one tasked with creating that content.
Other jobs include:
- Novel Writing: Personal memoirs, fiction/non-fiction for publishers.
- Script Writing: Everything from TV pilots and film scripts, to commercials and animations.
- Marketing: Press releases, brand stories, slogans.
- Academic Writing: Essays, academic non-fiction.
- Technical Writing: Instruction manuals, guides and how-to’s.
- Legal Writing: Terms and Conditions. Privacy Policies.
- Editing/Proofreading: Correcting all of the above.
- Critiquing: Providing advice on personal projects (novels, short stories).
- Consulting: Providing guidance on publishing, writing, SEO and more.
When it comes to the concept of “online freelancing”, it all revolves around something known as a “freelancing platform”. This is a essentially service that acts as a bridge between the client and the freelancer. These sites include Upwork , Guru and Freelancer , but not all should be judged equally as many are a waste of time.
You can use a freelancing platform to showcase your abilities like you would on a CV, and you can also use them to find and complete jobs.
Clients post job availabilities, writers apply to these, and the clients interview them. All of this is done through the platform, including the interview itself. And when the writer is hired, the platform continues to act as an intermediary.
If the freelancer and client agree a fee of $100, then the client must pay that $100 upfront. The platform will then hold that money in an Escrow account, sitting on it until the job is finished. Upon release, the platform takes a small cut and the writer gets the rest.
There is very little you need to get started as an online writer (apart from talent that is!). Basically you need:
- Computer: You don’t need anything flash. If it connects to the internet, it’s good enough.
- Word Processor: Clients will usually expect to receive work in .doc or .docx form. However, most word processors can convert, so you don’t need MS Word. There are free alternatives out there.
- Planner: When the jobs roll in, it’s easy to lose track. So, make sure you stay organized.
- Bank Account/PayPal: You will need a bank account for Upwork to pay you, or sometimes a PayPal account to receive payments.
- Skype: Many clients will want to connect with you via Skype or over the phone.
You’re also going to need to sign up to Upwork. There are other freelancing platforms out there, but this is the biggest, the best and it’s where most of the work is.
Upwork uses a system of ‘Connects’, which you need to apply for jobs. The more you charge, the harder it will be to find work and the more Connects you will use.
Upwork now charges a small fee of $0.15 for each Connect, so it may be necessary to spend a little money before you secure a job. If you have a good CV and offer an attractive service, you should hopefully land a paid gig without spending more than a dollar or two.
Upwork also takes a cut of your earnings (from each client) based on the following sliding scale.
- First $500: 20%
- $500 to $10,000: 10%
- Over $10,000: 5%
This may sound like a lot. But they put you in contact with the client, they ensure the working relationship is safe and they act as a mediator if there is an issue.
They also take care of the web hosting and, as Upwork is a trusted platform, it gets a lot of traffic from potential clients. So, it’s a small price to pay.
As a freelance writer on Upwork, you can expect to earn a maximum of $100 an hour for contracts paid by the hour (consultants and grant writers can earn more). However, many contracts are paid on a fixed price and if you work quickly, this can increase to $300 an hour.
The rates vary quite widely on Upwork, so take a look at what others are charging and set your price on the lower end as you get started. As you start writing on more complex topics and get a feel for the market, you can adjust your rates accordingly.
Remember it makes sense to base your price on the competition, not on your speed.
If you’re a mediocre writer but you’re also very slow, that doesn’t mean you should charge 3x the going rate just to make a decent hourly wage.
As with anything, you should soon speed up as you get used to the work, and can decide after a few jobs if this is something you want to seriously pursue.
There are many freelancing platforms out there, but none come close to Upwork. It’s bigger (which means more projects), it’s easier to use and there are more benefits for both the client and the freelancer.
It also has its flaws, but it used to have many more and they are steadily being ironed out.
There are millions of clients on Upwork posting hundreds of jobs every single day. Of course, there are also millions of freelancers competing for the same job as you. Any given project will have in excess of 20 applications and some have over 100.
But with a good profile, a good work ethic, some proven credentials and a little talent, you can go a long way.
The ability to work hard counts for a lot on this site. If you can regularly meet deadlines, always hit targets and respond to client messages within 24 hours, then you’re already performing a step above most of the other freelancers on the site.
A great tip is to log on during normal business hours and bid on the most recent job postings. Jobs on the second page likely already have many bidders, so the chance of landing the gig is lower the older it is.
If you’re something of a night owl, you can also log on during US business hours (New York is five hours behind the UK, Los Angeles eight hours). Many clients on Upwork are based in America, so you may find lots of new jobs appearing from around 5pm or later in the UK.
The first thing you need to do is setup your profile. Use a picture that shows your face, and make sure it’s professional.
You’ll want to fill every section of the profile, but need to focus more on some than others. For your work history, omit anything that’s irrelevant (whether it’s a GCSE in geography or a managerial role at McDonald’s) and focus purely on creative endeavours.
If you lack experience, spice things up, be vague, but tell the truth. If you have self-published an eBook, written an article for a print magazine and achieved a degree, then your experience can include:
- Published Author
- Worked for a major national news outlet
- Achieved a degree in my chosen field
It doesn’t matter if that book failed, that magazine “article” was actually a reader’s letter and that degree was in Sports Science. What matters is that you have something that catches the eye.
Your portfolio needs to be visual. You’ll be prompted to upload documents and writing samples, but no one pays attention to these. In fact, if a client wants to read a sample they will expect you to send them one during the interview.
Instead, post images that represent your work. They can be covers of books, comics or anthologies you wrote/edited, stills of videos that you scripted; marketing posters you helped to compose; and even screenshots of websites you wrote for.
You should also include a single document of your best written work. Use samples from fiction, non-fiction, scripts, website content and marketing. Paste them all into a single document and use headers to describe each of them (for example, “a marketing piece written for a leading UK beverage company”).
Most clients assume that writers can only write in certain genres or niches. This way you can prove otherwise.

In this industry you live or die based on your previous success. Your references might not count for much in an office job, but as a freelancer they’re what separates those who scrape by on minimum wage from those who earn a six-figure salary.
In the beginning, a single piece of bad feedback could end you, so you need to make sure you only work with clients who have a track record of leaving good feedback.
Using the options on the left of the Upwork search, narrow the results down to include the following:
- Experience Level: Expert—At “Intermediate”, clients will expect to pay no more than $20 an hour; at “Entry Level” you’ll be lucky if you make $5.
- Client History: 10+ Hires—Nine out of ten clients posting a job for the first time will disappear before hiring anyone. And even if they remain, they don’t have enough of a history for you to trust them.
- Client Info: Payment Verified—Only those with a track record of paying freelancers will be shown.
- Budget Price: $100 to $100k—This helps to weed out the clients who expect the earth for $0.50 an hour.
Once you find a job that suits, you need to check the feedback of each client before you apply. The trick is not to look at the feedback that others have left them, but at the feedback that they have left others.
You don’t care if freelancers think they are a little slow, incomprehensible or annoying, just that they have a tendency to leave 5-star feedback.
Do what you can to keep your average rating high and be prepared to give a refund if you receive poor feedback (a refund will delete the feedback). This should hopefully be very minimal, but will protect your high feedback rating.

Freelancing will open a lot of doors. It will introduce you to publishers, publicists, web-masters and business owners. If you stay connected to all of these, using social media to keep them close, then a simple job could lead to something massive.
Work will dry up on occasion, but the good thing is that this rarely happens once you have an established profile. Until you get to that point, here’s what you can do to keep the work coming:
- Ask: If a client promised more work that they didn’t deliver on, just ask them about it. If a client who gave you a lot of work in the past suddenly stops messaging you, email them. I like to give them a friendly nudge in the form of a catch-up message, following it up with a simple, “If you need anything done, you know where to find me”. You’d be surprised at how often this works.
- Focus on one Site: It seems counterintuitive, but if you focus on one platform you’ll have more work. The effort you put into a single platform shows, and this is what prospective clients want to see. If it isn’t working, don’t go elsewhere, just double your efforts where you are.
- Keep Applying: It doesn’t matter how many projects you have right now, you should always find time to send more proposals, apply for more jobs and sit through more interviews. You might be busy now, but soon you’ll meet those deadlines and collect your money, and then you’ll realize you have nothing else to do.
- Get Rated: Do what you can to become a part of the Top Rated and Pro programs on Upwork. These will boost your invites significantly and in most cases, you just need a few good marks on your profile to join.
- Lower Your Rates: If you’re struggling to find work, reduce your rates slightly to get the ball rolling again. It’s better for work at a reduced rate than not to work at all. You can always kick that project to the curb when a better one comes along (just make sure you finish it first).
Not only will a good client continue to provide, but they’ll introduce you to other clients and open many doors.
Whether you work on a platform like Upwork, or you do all of the legwork yourself, keep the following in mind:
- Always go out of your way for a client you respect. Never take liberties and apologize profusely if you make a mistake.
- Always be prepared to strike a deal. Offer cheaper rates for bulk jobs in the hope they will increase your workload.
- If you haven’t heard anything for a few weeks, send a message to enquire if they have anything available. In a competitive marketplace, freelancers can be forgotten.
- Give them advice. You’re the expert here, so if you notice an area of their site that could be improved or added to, tell them. They’ll appreciate it and you’ll get more work.
The work isn’t always going to be there. It’s important to keep trying, because it’ll get easier. But there are also other ways you can make money.
So, if you have the time but you don’t have the jobs, and if you’ve done all you can in terms of applying and being interviewed, you can try some of the following:
- Search “write for us”: More and more web-masters are turning to sites like Upwork to source content, but there are still sites that wait for the content to come to them. These sites typically pay well, and if you Google the phrase “Write for Us”, you shouldn’t have an issue finding them.
- Websites/Blogs: If you don’t know anything about SEO now, you will after a few months. You can use this knowledge to establish your own content websites and earn ad income on the side.
- Flipping Sites: Flippa is basically eBay for websites. You can buy and sell all kinds of blogs, high-profile domains and established online businesses. You can buy poor-quality sites, rewrite the content, do some more and sell them on. It’s just like Homes Under The Hammer—if you have the capital and you can cut costs by doing the work yourself, you’ll turn a profit.
- Contribute: Contributors to sites like Huff Post do not get paid. However, they are allowed to write what they want (within reason) which gives them an opportunity to embed links in their articles. There are countless clients on Upwork seeking freelancers who can get a single link on Huff Post. If you’re a contributor to this site, you can get anywhere from $200 to $500 for that link, and you only need to write a short article in order to post it. Forbes pays even more and works in much the same way.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Its an amazing opportunity but i don’t have any account to be payed on. Can’t Upwork transfer the money using an email or my number?
This is simply not true. I left upwork because the fees are poor. If you’re lucky, you will only earn $100 a day on Upwork, not an hour…this piece has clearly been written by someone who has been paid to write a guest post for Upwork…maybe they got $100 for it…you won’t! “As a freelance writer on Upwork, you can expect to earn a maximum of $100 an hour for contracts paid by the hour (consultants and grant writers can earn more).

How to make money as a writer
How can I make money writing? Here are 7 ways to get paid to write
Freelance magazine journalism.
Ever read a magazine article on a topic close to your heart and thought ‘I know more than that writer?’ You don’t need to be a professional journalist to contribute freelance articles to publications. You can turn your specialism/hobby/all-consuming interest into a money-spinner by writing pieces for magazines. Niche titles are often happy to commission experts to write clear, knowledgeable features on specialist subjects.
Write content for blogs and websites
Everyone has an online presence and there’s money to be made in writing content. People Per Hour and Fiverr are two of the best-known sites where you can post a freelancer profile offering your services as a content writer. Be specific about the skills you have to offer, aware of the going rates for the kind of work you’re looking for and be realistic that it’s a highly competitive marketplace.
Enter writing competitions and win
You only have to check this website every week to see that the writing world is full of competitions with generous cash prizes. The yearly Writing Magazine competition guides feature half a million pounds in writing prizes. Someone has to win them and why shouldn’t it be you? You have to be in it to win it, though, so polish your best work, regard the entry fees as an investment, not just in the chance that you’ll win but in becoming a better, more fluent writer, and get your entries in. You can’t lose, either – if you enter all Writing Magazine's short story competitions in a year, for instance, you will have accomplished 24 new short stories in 12 months – a fantastic achievement (and enough for an anthology, which you could self publish). View the latest competitions here.
Write online articles
What Culture pays £30 for a published list. Cracked.com pays for humour articles. WOW! Women on Writing pays for pieces relating to writing and publishing. That’s just three. Whether it’s Vice , TechRadar or Buzzfeed , check out the guidelines on your chosen website – and bear in mind that although not all the top-tier sites are paying markets, getting your content there will do wonders for your profile and hopefully sales if, for instance, you’ve got a book out that relates to the content you’ve written.
Bear in mind too that magazine brands require a constant stream of content for their website and although online budgets are generally lower than print budgets, there may be a fee, particularly if your piece isn’t part of the promotional activity for a product of your own.
Self-publish your book
As an indie author, you can self-publish your book on Amazon and if you’re commercially minded and marketing-savvy, there’s a good chance of generating income from book sales. Successful self-published authors are usually prolific, write within commercial genres and are at home using social media to market their books. If you want ideas on how to be a successful self-published author, check out what worldwide bestseller Adam Croft had to say in an exclusive interview.
Earn cash for fillers and snippets
Some publications, especially chatty leisure titles such as Take a Break , Readers’ Digest and That’s Life but also the Guardian’s Family section, encourage reader contributions and pay small sums or offer prizes for letters and fillers: top tips, recipes, jokes, true-life tales and other snippets. Other publications may not offer cash, but have excellent prizes for star letters – Writing Magazine offers an invaluable Writers & Artists Yearbook in every issue!
Write a bestseller
OK, we admit this one isn’t guaranteed to work. And we’re well aware that there’s no formula for success, or we’d be following it ourselves. But why leave it to all those other authors? Why shouldn’t you, at least, have a go at writing a book that strikes a chord with a wide readership? Write the best book you can, get it out there, and see what happens. You might be the next James Patterson or JK Rowling. Most likely you won’t be, but you will be a writer who has completed a book and got it out into the world. Just don’t spend all your royalties at once. And keep in touch when you get famous – we ‘ll be thrilled to add you to our fabulous roster of Writing Magazine success stories.
Write the best book you can, get it out there, and see what happens.
Not all of these strategies will work for everyone, but choose the best options that suit you and your writing goals. And if you've enjoyed success and been paid for your writing using these ideas, let us know by emailing us today.
Inside the Writers' News section of Writing Magazine you'll find job opportunities every month with publishers looking for writers. Try a copy today to get started.

As a freelance article writer , you also get to enjoy working at your own pace, setting your own price (as demand for your writing grows) and you get to enjoy a steady income as a freelance writer .
If you want to earn money by writing online for others, here are 10 sites where you can get paid to write your own articles.
Wow Women on Writing: $50-100
Wow Women on Writing does one thing really well: They look after female writers, encourage them and genuinely seek to offer opportunities to budding freelancers. Their audience is diverse and all focused on providing excellent content for women.
Wow Women focus on innovative business, freelancing, and training. The articles are generally detailed and designed to help writers improve their skills and showcase their work. You have an option of either asking for a payment by Paypal or, if in the USA, by Check.
How to get started
Start by reading other Wow Articles. You will want to have an idea of the tone of the site. The site is informative, relaxed and excited about showcasing good writers.
- Ensure that you are not just duplicating their content and re-editing an old idea. Be creative.
- Wow will pay up to $150.00 for a 3,000-word feature article.
- Focus on being useful. How will your post help readers?
- Practical, actionable advice is what readers want with easy to follow steps.
Wow Women focuses on women, writers, and a monthly theme. I am not sure what they offer in terms of a link back to your own content in the articles but they do link back to your site from your Author profile.
Please note that they do not open attachments. Your article or pitch needs to be presented in plain text in the body of the email. Sending a Bio or a link to other published work is a good idea and will improve your chances of getting published.
Strong Whispers: $50 – $150
Strong Whispers offers readers a range of articles about lifestyle, environment and other social issues. The range is wide. Your contribution is not limited.
Articles can range from corporate greed to education reform or change in world leadership to letting the people govern and make decisions on the way we treat the environment and exploitation of resources.
Article earnings are negotiable, but they typically pay $50-$150 per published article. They are willing to pay more for the right article and website aims to publish 2-3 guest posts per month.
Step 1: Send them your best outline for an article you would like to write along with your fee expectation. Topics need to be unique and have a high impact.
They also ask that you send your current blog URL or an URL to published work so they can understand your writing style. They will tell you if the topic is of interest to them and if your sample meets their review criteria.
Step 2: After you have been invited to write for them, go ahead, write your article and submit it for review. They won’t publish simply mediocre or just okay guest posts.
Each article must be well written, accurate, grammatically correct and original content. You will get to view their guidelines so you can be sure to tick all the boxes.
Step 3: After you submit your article online, it will be reviewed. After review you will receive one of 3 emails:
- Rejected – Poor quality.
- Requires minor changes
If approved, it will be set to publish either immediately or at a future date. Once set to publish, you will be paid via PayPal and start earning money online.

A Few Tips on Writing the Kind of Article that Gets published
- Make sure your article is free from grammatical errors. We suggest using a tool like the free grammar checker by EduBirdie
- Make sure your article is original.
- Make sure you follow the editorial guidelines regarding word length, style, and tone
These are basic to getting people to show interest in publishing your article and are absolutely necessary.
Cracked.com: $100 – $200
Cracked.com is basically a humour site. If you are a funny/smart/creative person, Cracked.com offers a good opportunity to earn some extra cash with article writing.
No experience necessary. If the content is good, this is a great way to make money blogging . You get to talk directly to the editors. Their content includes articles, photoshops, infographics, and videos. Take your pick.
Register for the site, click on the writer’s workshop, which leads you to the message board where everyone pitches their articles.
You pitch an article idea by writing the article idea, along with the five subtopics under the idea, a full column, and the information.
- At the time of writing, you get $100 per article.
- If you get up to five published articles, it goes up to $200 per article.
- If your article finishes in the top ten articles of the month (rated on website traffic.) you get a $100 bonus.
- You also get $100 for coming first in the Photoshop competitions of which I think they run two a week.
There is a bonus that runs in the design section also from time to time. It includes $500 for designing a winning T-Shirt, and a thread where you post (presumably humorous) infographics and they’ll pay you $100 if it’s featured on the site.
Watch Culture: $25 – $500
Watch Culture offers its news, opinion and entertainment coverage to millions of users worldwide each month.
As an online magazine based in the UK it covers the popular zeitgeist. Each day dozens of writers are earning money by publishing articles on Film, Music, Gaming, Sports, Television and much more to their ever-expanding five-million a month strong audience.
Several hundred articles are posted every single week from contributors, some of which you will see from time to time on Sky News, Metro Radio, BBC Radio, Dublin FM and in the national newspapers.
What Culture have begun rolling out a system entitling all writers to earn money from every article they contribute.
In the Beta testing phase, some of the contributors have earned as much as £700 from one individual article. The system is based on a per views basis, rewarding the very best writers whose content matches what their audience wants to read.
Typically, writers who could come up with original concepts and execute them well have really reaped the big benefits.
If writing isn’t your thing, they are also planning to set up a larger video presence and are looking for talented filmmakers and YouTubers to produce high-quality content for the site.
So if you think you’ve got what it takes to write interesting articles or create popular videos and make money online while doing it, get in touch with them at [email protected] for more details.
If you’d prefer to chat on Skype, the address is ‘whatculture’. Or if you live anywhere near Newcastle in the UK, they can arrange a face-to-face meeting.
Developer Tutorials: $30 – $50
Developer Tutorial provides its users with a regular supply of programming and design guides keeping them up-to-date on new and emerging technologies and techniques.
To help fuel this effort they utilise freelance writers to produce unique, high-quality tutorials in the following categories:
They are also looking for articles referencing cool and useful lists that users would both be interested in and benefit from reading.
An example of this might be, “30 Cool Web Tools to Make Your Development Easier” or “30 Awesome Photoshop Movie Poster Tutorials”.
They pay cash for your tutorials and list-based articles so not only are you helping out fellow coders and designers but you are making more of a name for yourself as a freelance writer.
Pay rates depend on factors such as the quality of the tutorial/article and the demand for the topic it covers.
- Pay rates for published list articles currently range between $30-$50.
- Payment is sent via PayPal immediately after your article is published.
- List based articles must target web developers or designers.
Tutorials are required to be a minimum of 1000 words and should include illustrations (screenshots etc) if needed to more effectively portray your message.
B. Michelle Pippin: $50 – $150
Michelle Pippin is looking for articles aimed at helping small businesses increase their profits, influence, or impact. Michelle Pippin provides sharp and high-quality business and marketing content to a wide audience.
If you have some original work, a great idea or a hack for the business, marketing niche, this could be a site to consider. While the site focuses on women in business, it provides an even-handed mix of articles on profit, entrepreneurial resources, marketing and case study articles as well as relevant news on the business world.
The site has a large audience and a wide mix of business and marketing related material.
Your articles don’t need to be too technical, as though they were being prepared for a peer-reviewed journal, but they should go beyond the basics.
Michelle will expect you to do the research and if it reaches her members only audience (which is a print edition) you will likely receive a bigger pay cheque.
Word count on the site for your average business or marketing article is about 800 words.
- Obviously, your work must be original work.
- If your work gets published in my members only (print) newsletter, you’ll get paid more money, but you will not be able to republish your article elsewhere.
- Payment is on a per article basis and will be paid via Paypal on the 1st of the month following the month it is posted.
Don’t send over full articles. Just complete the form and tell them your areas of expertise. A short pitch should be fine but keep your offer short and sweet.
Metro Parent: $50 – $75
Metro Parent Publishing Group is open to experienced freelance writers to help build the content of their magazine and website. Their general goal is to have a good mix of fun and substantive local stories of interest to local parents.
Here are a few factors to consider before sending your pitch.
- Make it local. They are looking for stories and sources that reflect the communities they cover: Livingston, Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw and Wayne counties. Therefore, southeast Michigan ideas and sources are preferred.
- Pitch early. Content for Metro Parent is determined months in advance. Story ideas should be pitched a good two to three months before the month it would run. This is particularly important for seasonally-anchored stories.
If your article submission is accepted or you have been assigned a story, you should submit an invoice (within an email is fine) that includes name, address, phone number, Social Security Number, name of story and payment amount.
The invoice should be submitted within a week of submitting the story.
- Features 1,000-2,500 words: $150-$350, depending on the complexity of topic and number of sources required.
- Department columns: $50-75
- Parent Pipeline pieces: $35-50

The finished story should be single-spaced with a hard return at each new paragraph. Do not indent for new paragraphs. And include only one space after punctuation marks.

- Font should be Times New Roman, 14-point
- Include a suggested headline and/or dek
- Subheads (i.e., within the body copy) are strongly encouraged for stories 1,000 words or more.
Metro Parent prefers stories to be sent as a Microsoft Word attachment. For those who don’t have Word, send the story within the body of an email.
Be sure to include the name and phone number of sources at the end of the story, in case they have follow-up questions.
Sitepoint: Visit Link for Pricing
Sitepoint writers are generally web professionals with a passion for development and design. Site Point is specifically looking for content that is technical, instructive, well-written and innovative.
Based in Melbourne, Australia, Site Point works with article writers from all over the world. The editors are web developers and designers at the top of the industry. They claim to pay above-industry rates for quality articles.
Site Point covers the following topics:
- Ruby, Mobile development, UX
- Design, HTML
You will have to inquire using the link above for rates and process.
Uxbooth is into design. I figured that much out. The rest of their site is gibberish. For example, their “About us” page begins with these words,
“The UX Booth is a publication by and for the user experience community. Our readership consists mostly of beginning-to-intermediate user experience and interaction designers..”
What that means is anybody’s guess. it might be good for the user experience but it’s nigh useless if you were looking for a reading experience . Nevertheless, they offer you money to join them in the art of gibberish.
Uxbooth does not accept fully written drafts outright. Instead, they pair authors with editors in order to collaborate throughout the writing process. It works like this:
- You pitch a topic or idea that you’d like to share. Don’t be shy!
- If accepted, a development editor is assigned to you in order to help you develop your narrative in accordance with their style guide. The two of you discuss and evolve the idea until it’s ready to share.
- That’s it! Articles are usually published four-to-eight weeks after they’re initially pitched.
- They pay $100 per article.

I did not unerstand that how to make articles…………
June 10, 2014 at 8:34 am
Saif, article writing is a skill learned, like any other skill. To begin your learning I would suggest:
1. Write in the language you are most comfortable in. 2. Write about subjects you really like. 3. Read. Read all the time. Read the articles that are already being published online in the area you are most interested in.
Once you have a good knowledge of your subject and you have some ideas about where you might want to get published, hit me up for a chat. I will show you how to write up your article.
July 26, 2014 at 4:12 am
Hi David, this is quite informative and I must say the little knowledge I had about article-writing websites and their rates has greatly been improved. I have a request though, do you have any account that you can help me out with. I am a beginner, a year to be specific, and still in college.
November 27, 2014 at 2:25 pm
Fantastic stuff, I re-designed my site and the search rankings plummeted I have added you in my reading list, keep up the interesting work.

I am a Finance and business writer even though I can write about other subjects as well. How can I get going? Any work available or links?

Practise is the key, Ghufran. Practise in your own language for your own people. Write about the things that you love in your own culture and community. You should also join a forum like Writers Digest and try and learn from other good writers.

Asim, if you are new to writing and you want to make some money, you could comment writing. It’s easier than writing a whole article. You can sign up to Post Loop in the link toward the top of this page.
They pay money for writing comments. You will need to read the instructions and follow them carefully. But once you do, you can earn a little bit of money by writing comments online.
July 25, 2014 at 3:46 am
Hey David… I also want to earn online….plz recommend me a website so that I may start earning……
July 25, 2014 at 8:54 pm
If you are new to writing online, you might want to start with something fairly simple – commenting for money. You will find a link near the top of this article. If you feel confident, you could try signing up for scripted.com for single jobs that pay better, you could try Blogging Pro’s Job Board here: http://www.bloggingpro.com/jobs/
July 29, 2014 at 11:41 am
Awesome article! In my opinion, if you’re already writing, why not start a blog? A Blog is one of the most effective ways to make a long-term sustainable income online.
Blogging is HUGE! You just have to know how to tap into it correctly. I started a blog in the “cooking” niche which is my passion less than 6 months ago. I’ll admit, my first couple months we’re definitely a struggle. Luckily I found a “blogging success” blueprint so to speak, and ever since then, I’ve been averaging $200+ per day..and that’s without any of my own products. All through affiliate sales.
Once again, great article! I’ll be subscribing for more!
August 22, 2014 at 7:11 am
Hi, the comment that you post really grabs my intention since I’ve been struggling for years to earn money on the internet. Thanks so much, David.
August 22, 2014 at 1:42 pm
My pleasure Harold.
October 7, 2014 at 10:50 am
How did you manage to gain success? I’ve been thinking about starting a blog, in the hopes that I could get a full time career out of it, but I’m not sure where to begin!
There are so many blogs out there, so much that I can’t shake the doubt that nothing will come of it.
Your help would be much appreciated!

I’m so happy to have come across your post. If possible, can you email so we can chat some more? I have been doing content writing for a while now, but I’m hoping to start taking it to the next level. I’d love advice from someone who is knowledgable in the industry.
Thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing from you.

Happy to help if I can. Let me know what kind of questions you had and I will do my best.

Are you looking for the best tool on the Internet these days? Are you looking how to make more money on the Internet? Do not waste your time ! Get it right now!
August 20, 2014 at 3:30 pm
Hi Sonia. No, not really looking for any tools. I find that I get plenty of tools leaving comments on the blog and don’t need to go looking for them.
August 20, 2014 at 7:15 am
Thanks for the tips! But I have a query. I submitted an article on What Culture but I think it is small. Will it be rejected because of the article being small?
August 20, 2014 at 3:28 pm
Hi Raajit. Glad you like the article. Though I am not a decision maker at What Culture, I have given it some thought and yes, your article will be published and you will go on to have an awesome career in publishing. You may even win a prize of some sort one day. Well done and congratulations in advance!
August 20, 2014 at 6:44 pm
David Sir, you are being funny. But thanks for the encouragement!
August 20, 2014 at 6:54 pm
Yes, Raajit, I was being funny because, without actually seeing the article – and since I do not own What Culture – I have no way of knowing whether they will accept it or not. If you want to send me a copy of the article I will be happy to take a look at it.
August 20, 2014 at 9:07 pm
Please give me your email id so I may sen you the article.
August 25, 2014 at 4:51 pm
Thanks for this site. This site really helpful to write article for every new writer.
August 27, 2014 at 5:47 pm
No worries Nahida. Good luck.
August 26, 2014 at 1:02 am
Hello am a full time writer can you recommend to me any client who has writing projects
August 27, 2014 at 5:45 pm
Hi Morris, check out some of those listed in the post. Also check out Pro Bloggers job listings.
August 31, 2014 at 7:44 am
Hi, Thanks for the list but do you have a site that one can just register and get articles to write?
November 17, 2015 at 7:11 pm
I have been freelance writing since August and have a lot of education background in science, graphic design and political science. I found some academic writing sites that pay very well for writers with a higher education.
There are others, but none pay as good as this one. The support is great and you can call them with any issues. I recommend this only for writers with a strong background in writing academic essays. There is no startup fee but you will need to provide a transcript to prove your educational ability prior to bidding and sending proposals.
After a week I had 10+ invitations to write daily. I’m supporting my family and enjoying more time at home. Best of luck everyone, stick with it!
June 7, 2017 at 9:26 am
Hi , i want to write on some topics related to science and human moral development.what may be the best site for me in order to start writing and earning money as early as possible.
September 5, 2014 at 9:57 am
Some of these sites are fine – Cracked in particular is great – but I would be really careful about promoting WhatCulture to anyone.
I’ve heard some real horror stories from many, many people about them. They have a history of plagiarism, which they went to great lengths to cover up. They’ve lied about job descriptions so that they can trick people into doing free work for them. They’ve withheld pay from their writers and refused to pay others all that they are owed.
Maybe if you want to get a tiny amount of cash for an article titled ‘Best Sex Scenes Evah’ they’re fine, but otherwise I wouldn’t risk being exploited.
September 5, 2014 at 10:10 am
Never! Thanks for the feedback. We update this list all the time to keep it useful. If you find a site that’s reliable, let us know.
June 1, 2015 at 11:59 pm
Couldn’t agree more. I have never written for them but, having seen friends do so, I have spoken to them about the possibility. They were the most childish, unprofessional people I have ever interacted with. Petty nerds, quite frankly. Since then, my friends have either left or been forced to leave their writing duties because of the incompetence and harshness of the idiots in charge. Matt (editor in chief) is an idiot in particular. Peter is also a moron.
June 2, 2015 at 6:40 am
Thanks Ellie. I think it’s time I gave WhatCulture the boot. If you know of a good alternative, let me know.
September 17, 2014 at 4:54 pm
Really an inspiring article with earning keys…. thank you…. I want to know that I am from India.may I earn through these sites…. ? With regards… let me know sir…
September 21, 2014 at 4:22 pm
This list is like a treasure to the writers. They will surely enjoy this list. I would like to ask one question. Why did you mentioned the name as “Watch Culture” in your list when its real name is “What Culture”. I didn’t got that. Is there any specific reason behind it or it’s just a typo?
September 28, 2014 at 10:33 pm
I am a homemaker,currently i do surveys online and earn 2 to 3000 per month. I am looking for some better options to earn more will you please guide me.
October 7, 2014 at 10:53 am
This is awesome, thanks for the information!
Just wondering, what do you think is the best way to get my blog successful enough to pay the bills? Have I got a better shot posting articles for these companies, or running a blog myself?
October 23, 2014 at 9:01 am
Lisa, It depends on the niche your blog is in – and how competitive the niche and how you monetise it. Yes, you can make a good income writing for others, and in many ways it is less stressful – once you have the client base. Then again, building up your own online writing business or blog can be very rewarding.
Give us a shout if you would like to have a chat about your particular situation.
November 8, 2014 at 9:15 pm
I was leaning towards health and fitness. Unfortunately this is an extremely common subject, so if I end up having a go at this, I need to find a new and interesting way to portray it… to seperate myself from all the other fitness bloggers.
Any help/advice would be great.
November 11, 2014 at 8:06 am
You are right. The niche is highly competitive and standing out is hard. You have a couple of options, but both require the same precision. You could start your own blog or you could write for others.
One involves you marketing yourself to targeted (and well developed) websites, the other involves you marketing your own website and then finding a way to monetize it.
The precision issue is this: You need to narrow your niche interest down to one, or three elements at the most.
Sit down and come up with a list of all topics related to your interest. Health and fitness is generic, competition too high. So you want to aim at just one niche market in that industry.
For example, your speciality might be:
Women’s Fitness Programs. You could review and recommend them – a nice affiliate opportunity right there.
Weight Training for Women Exercising from Home Fitness training for mums…
You could even get more specific: Weight Training for Mums at Home (Ewk! – but again, a nice affiliate opportunity there). Belly Gym for Working Women – Entirely focused on one aspect of fitness and health, say, Daily exercise tips for working women that help maintain a figure.
The key factor is this – be precise. Start within a very narrow niche and become an authority on it. Then build from there once you begin having success. Become the Belly Gym Expert for working women.
There is a great angle right there – feel free to use it! I see that, amazingly, the domain is available – it’s a great short, easy to remember domain name and business title – quick grab it before I do! [www.bellygym.com]
All the best, Lisa.
October 12, 2014 at 9:57 pm
Thanks for the heads up. This is my first venture into writing an article. Can you suggest a site(s) where I can be able to practice and have my “work” assessed?
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
October 23, 2014 at 9:03 am
Most sites won’t give you a lot of helpful feedback unless they know you well. Most times it will simply be yes or no to your submission.
You can send your article to me for assessment if you like and I will be happy to direct you to the most likely sites to publish your work.
November 11, 2014 at 1:15 am
Hi. I am student of 11 grade. And I wanna make my self fully equipped with English writing. So, I was suggested to put my glance on this website and you get every thing. I expect that you will email me with warm welcome. Regards. Abdul Rafio Memon.

November 11, 2014 at 1:19 am
Sadia, if someone wants to improve his writing skills then which websites are best. Regards
November 7, 2014 at 4:01 pm
Nice List! One new site is NichePage. It is similar to Zujava and HubPages but it is completely focused on sharing information about amazon products and each page is structured for products alone.
November 10, 2014 at 4:26 am
sir I like to earn money by article writing and registration. please provide me guideline. thanks.
December 5, 2014 at 7:28 am
Subscribed and really enjoyed reading this post! I am sure you have other posts that give your readers some tips about the many differences to article submission guidelines, right! Probably it’s great practice to get your first articles approved by ezine articles or hub-pages (guess one of my last rushed works I wanted to add to hub-pages wasn’t approved uuh ooh) to have happy readers. Please let me know about these. I would also like to share this or any other post or article you would recommend with my “How To Make Money Online Newsletter Readers? Please let me know! Thanks again for your work! Respectfully, Oliver Ohene-Dokyi
December 7, 2014 at 1:47 pm
Awesome list. I would like to recommend one more that pays you for guest blogging. Web Tool Hub.
December 15, 2014 at 1:57 am
Thanks for this article. I have been searching for information on this topic for a while and your article has encouraged me to get started writing.
December 18, 2014 at 6:35 pm
Online business is all about the content. If content is king for your website you will do OK.
December 21, 2014 at 9:45 am
Thanks a lot David.
March 4, 2015 at 7:04 pm
Now a day’s content writing is not an easy affair for everyone due to high competition and due to plagiarism matter. It needs creativity and mind power. There are a numerous websites are coming to the internet everyday and those sites needs fresh and unique contents. Writing articles online can provide you money and fame. yes you are right there are a number of sites who are providing enough money for articles to add their site. That’s why freelancer content writers are getting enough writing projects with lots of money.
March 11, 2015 at 9:56 pm

April 5, 2015 at 3:06 pm

April 11, 2015 at 11:57 am
Hi Odesk. What an unusual name you have. Thanks for your comments.
April 22, 2015 at 7:15 pm
Hi Sir I have read over 150 books in past 4 years and my thirst for reading didn’t end so I started reading articles and then began writing short stories. Here I found your blog which really spurred me to take a step further. To earn through writing.
May 2, 2015 at 6:18 pm
Nice list, good work, my question is have you ever tried one of this ways of article writing?
May 10, 2015 at 6:38 am
G’day, Hitesh. Yes, I have. It is hard work, but once you get a foot in the door it becomes easier.
May 2, 2015 at 9:43 pm
David, really a good work done by you. I am also interesting in write articles. Thanks for your help.
May 10, 2015 at 12:12 pm

Hi David, Thank you, I need a piece of advice I have good experience of writing essays, reports, articles and dissertations for universities in UK and Australia. I want to make it big. I will appreciate if you could guide me through. Thank you, Sonu Sran
June 15, 2015 at 6:34 am
At The Daily Heckle, we pay between £10 and £20 for articles. We’d love to be on this list.
June 15, 2015 at 8:09 am
Hi Malcolm, thanks for stopping by. That sounds doable. Check you inbox for my email.
June 19, 2015 at 3:10 pm
Hi David, Thanks for your information. It really will be very helpful for me. I was helpless thinking what have to do. But now I’m thinking there are something by which I can start.
June 28, 2015 at 9:15 am
THANKS for the list David!! Did I say thank you?…THANKS A MILL!! 😀
July 1, 2015 at 5:23 pm
This is a very useful list of content writing websites that pay upfront payments. On top of that, as Lisa has suggested, a writer should not overlook the option of setting up his/her own blog, and using Adsense monetization. Blogspot and WordPress are the most popular free blogging platforms. Or use IZEA and other websites where a writer can find sponsored article opportunities. I am amazed with the fact that Penny Hoarder can pay up to $800 or What Culture up to $700, for a single article, as you have mentioned! Is it how incremental payments add up? Of course, I wouldn’t even try Ceramics.org, since I am totally ignorant on this topic. This is regardless of how much I would be tempted to write a 5,000-word article for the incredible amount of $950. This is definitely a niche market. Perhaps another established market for online writers is Constant Content, as it has been testified by writers that make a decent income there.
July 1, 2015 at 8:03 pm
Thanks for the tip on Constant Content, Barge.
July 2, 2015 at 2:51 am
It all sound good. A bit complicated but good.
July 13, 2015 at 4:26 am
Thank you for the insightful article. I’m impressed at your willingness to help and give advice to those who request it and that’s why I have decided to seek your help and guidance.
I’ve been blogging for 7 months now and while making money isn’t my primary focus yet I was wondering if you could guide me on how to carve a niche for myself writing football articles and also on how to make money writing sport articles. Writing football is my passion.
July 13, 2015 at 9:33 am
Hi Paul, I have replied with some suggestions to your email address. Give me a shout if I can be more helpful.
July 13, 2015 at 7:50 pm
Dear David Sir ,
It is very nice thought “writing” Please suggest a site , who purchase online my articles . I think its is very nice idea of self employment. In our mind so many thoughts of our brain every minute and every second , so it’s nice thing writing and earn something for our family.

By getting your site on this service you have a chance to get your site more visitors than you can imagine.
July 23, 2015 at 10:37 am
I am interested in writing articles on God and faith. Are there any websites that are interested in Spiritual uplifting and do they pay?

August 14, 2015 at 5:08 am
Sir David Writing is a wonderful skill to attract people according to their mental requirements. The difficulty is how to judge the mind of the people; whether, your written stuff will have impact on their mind or not. Is there any suitable gauge exist to determine the liking of audience before writing our stuff or consulting others?
August 28, 2015 at 10:15 pm
This was very useful. I am currently taking some time off work and was exploring writing opportunities online, and came across your article. I have been writing for a while now but have never published anything (online). I have done a lot of report writing, case studies and success stories for organizations working in the development sector. I am working on a research article nowadays and hoping to have it published some time in the near future.I was wondering if you could provide any direction regarding sports websites that are in need of freelance writers. It is an area of interest and I think I may be able to contribute.
September 5, 2015 at 1:34 am
Hi David, I’m glad I have come across your site 🙂 it seems vey helpful indeed. My aim is to earn money through online writing. I have written several articles and I want to send you one of them to you for assessment if it is possible. Thanks in advance Cheers, Marwa

September 12, 2015 at 7:08 am
I am a blog writer and article I am going to start write where I can earn after posting blogs, articles and comments, likes, reviews, etc on each and every thing you will get a flight point which will convert in to money and that will be paid by cheque.

September 26, 2015 at 5:15 pm
Faraz, I would start with Dev Tutorials, Tutts and SitePoint, depending on your niche.
October 2, 2015 at 10:51 pm
Please can you help and guide me to how to start my own blog? I have lived in Africa spent a lot of years in Asia. I have a huge experience on what life is all about in these parts of the world. I have mingled with the locals and seen a lot. Thanks
October 6, 2015 at 10:21 am
Hi Nathan. Sure, happy to help. What kind of help did you want?
September 27, 2015 at 1:55 am
This Article is very helpful and informative.
Please can you tell me the sites in which I can write Articles on Football. I’m a huge Arsenal Fan 🙂 and I can write short or long Article about Arsenal or about English Premier league. I have been watching EPL for the last 5 years.
Even though I don’t have any experience in writing Articles….
But I believe in myself. I have been practising on writing Articles for about 3 months now.
Just need an opportunity….so can you tell me any site other than Watch Culture where I can write Articles on Football and can make decent amount of money..
September 29, 2015 at 9:35 pm
Syed, you could get a regular gig on gfe sport. Even if they don’t pay you, you would get exposure that helps you fill out your resume. Email them. If you do well, then you will be able to point to those articles when talking to paying gig sites – they always ask for published samples.
September 30, 2015 at 12:32 am
Okay. Thanks for the help David. I’ll try it out.
September 30, 2015 at 6:51 am
After searching for information on writing online and only finding sketchy results, this list of actual paying sites instead of craigslist click bait was quite refreshing.
I’m 23, and I graduated with an English degree last year. I am confident in my writing ability; I only need to learn how to write for the online market. Is it really that simple? Just write and submit to these sites? Or are there other things to learn, like the proper citation format for sources and links in your article, how to write a query letter, maintaining/knowing your rights….I noticed that most authors/bloggers have a personalized “signature” or banner at the bottom of their article, along with their email and picture. Are these provided from the site, or are they made and coded by the authors? I understand making a blog is crucial to creating an online presence, but I’m wary of spending too much of my time writing for free. I’m not looking to make a living at the moment; I just need a second income. I’m in Canada, if location makes any difference. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you,
October 6, 2015 at 10:34 am
Hi Mel. If you just want to earn a little extra in your spare time then writing for others is ideal. You don’t have to worry about having or maintaining a website. As far as writing for free goes, your blog is an investment. It’s a property. Every link that points to it and every bit of good quality content that you write on it is increasing its value in real monetary terms. So, if you love to write, you are not really writing for free. You are increasing the value of your site with every article.-
September 30, 2015 at 5:10 pm
Hi, David! An excellent article you have here! I’m sure it’ll help many other people (sure did give me a lot of information).
My question is; what do you think about sites that pay you per view/share/like and so on? I’m talking about sites like HubPages, Bubblews etc. I’m sure you know about them. Apparently, they pay 1 cent ($0.1) per view or something similar. Do you think it is possible to expose articles written for them enough to earn a significant amount of money? Some sites pay for ad clicks as well (like HubPages). Do you think it’s worth the time, or not? I’ve been doing some research, and I found many people who claimed to have earned $300~$900 as ‘passive’ income through such sites.
Thanks for giving your time to read this. Regards, K. Joshi
October 6, 2015 at 10:32 am
Sites like that tend to have a small handful of users who are genuinely making money, the rest of us are just propping up the site with all our hard work and articles. It’s not the way for a serious writer to go if they want to put bread on the table. Aim high.
October 14, 2015 at 1:24 pm
Thanks for the list. There are innumerable opportunities available these days for on line content writing but this goes without saying that the content should original and fresh enough so as it brings a good deal of traffic on your website.
October 21, 2015 at 10:24 pm
hi, I’m new to the writing world but would love to make some money online, what advice and / or suggestion would you give
October 29, 2015 at 3:39 pm
Thank you so much David.
November 5, 2015 at 10:23 am
No worries, Shanu. I hope you find a site you can write for and make a profit from. Good luck.
November 5, 2015 at 12:23 am
Your article is very helpful for me. I will follow your instruction. Thank you.
November 5, 2015 at 10:21 am
HI Habib, thanks for your feedback. All the best.
November 10, 2015 at 9:01 am
In my view, earning money online depends on how much traffic you will be able to generate for your blog. Super targeted traffic is essential if you are going to be able to make your money via online.
November 14, 2015 at 10:33 am

December 1, 2015 at 12:18 am
Thank you so much for compiling this 🙂
It’s nice to know I don’t have to settle for .005 cents per every 1000 views like a lot if theseller ridiculous sites .
December 1, 2015 at 9:32 pm
Thanks Nicole. Yes, you can earn a living writing, but you have to start strong and really bring focus to all of your marketing and content – not just the content you create.
December 1, 2015 at 6:52 am
Oh….I am very grateful to find your article since I was looking for the way to earn money through my writing skills. I do hope that I can prove that earning from home is true, since nobody (around me) could not believe that. Thank you, David. Hope the best for you.
Regard Made Sandat
December 2, 2015 at 9:08 am
Thanks for sharing this list! It provides an opportunity for the budding Indian writers to share their articles with thousands of our visitors and start publishing.
December 4, 2015 at 6:06 pm
Hello Sir , Is there something for students willing to earn money through their writing skills as well ? You know for many of us writing and reading is not just a passion anymore , it is salvation.
December 5, 2015 at 12:57 am
A really helpful article, all told. As a international university student in the UK, I have wanted to pursue a part-time income for a while now. While I have little skill in writing, I am an absolute beginner at it’s online equivalent and was hoping you could advise me on how to start out.

Hi, Great Cover Article. People should follow your tips to make money. Passive Money Ideas to submit Article on Making Money Online.
May 22, 2016 at 9:58 am
When you’re just getting started to make your own home business, you need to sit down and think. You should also write down what you need to do, just so you can reference your notes later. You’ll need notes, because if you want to start a business, there’s a lot of things you need to consider.
What are my skills? What are my talents? What can I do to make money? Those are just a few of the many questions you should ask yourself. You need to know what your skills are, just like you need to know your talents. If you can combine those two elements together, you’ll have a way to start generating ideas for a business opportunity.

You doing really a good job. I have got so many tips from your article. Thanks.
David, I like writing about philosophy, time travel, all that stuff related to human existence, how human were created, who created us. If God created us were did they go, were they people from another solar system, another Galaxy, witches, superstition, ghost, spirit, life after death, metaphysics, the beauty of nature. I write about how I feel when the cold wind passes by me touching every part of me, and the moon struggling hard to shine as bright as she can despite of the dark cloud making all their effort to cover the moon. The sun, the running river, etc, etc. All this stuff which people don’t talk much about. All my writing are only thoughts that run through my mind. I don’t have strong evidence to prove my thoughts and that’s what make me not to publish my articles. I try searching for the niche familiar to my writing’s. But I find none. Do you think , there will be a niche related to such topics. If yes, please do let me know. Yes, I too can write article on any niche if I give time and research on it. But, my priority goes to the above outline I mention which is very rare in the world of Internet I guess. Thank you.
best regards Krishna Chhetry.

I have started a wordpress blog and posting into it whenever I can and so I want to know, what should I do with my poetic talent to start earning money.

Hmmm, wish I had good news, Graham. Most Poets don’t make their money until they are returned to the dust from whence they came.

Making money from home is made so simple now and days! i didnt have a penny to my name last year, and i currently make 1,500 a month from the simple steps given by David at Mallee Blue Media. This is a great company to learn self development, entrepreneurship, and how to generate an extra income!!
September 1, 2016 at 2:37 pm
Great content is an essential need for every website. I was really upset and discouraged when I wasn’t getting good traffic due to my bad content for my website readers. I found an agent who provides awesome contents for my website. Now I enjoy traffic with ease and joy because I know I have audience who will be reading. I have been using his writing services for sometimes now and he is the best so far.
September 10, 2016 at 12:12 am
This is just the sort of straight forward points I love to see!
It makes things clear and great to understand Thaniks 🙂

Most of online business is about affiliate marketing and ecommerce but there is almost no leverage because there is lots of hard work involved and everybody know that it’s tough to make money that way. Anyone can spend a bit of time understanding the new business model and make money effortlessly regardless you’re newbie or not.

hai!! I know Hw to write a movie of social life bt has no one to help me. Now think I have an idea ..
April 18, 2017 at 10:25 pm
Thanks for the article! I’m a teacher in China (from the US), and I’m looking for ways to supplement my salary because I only actually work about 20 hours a week. I have lots of time to do other work, but my contract prohibits me from taking on tutoring and the like.
Anyway, I realized I can get away with working online, and I’ve been looking for a venue ever since. I considered Textbrokers, and I may try that approach, but I wasn’t aware that there are more substantial opportunities out there for entry-level freelancing until I read your article. I tend to underestimate myself and overestimate the competition, but I’m realizing that I likely have a good chance of making some money and enjoying writing. I wrote some feature articles in magazines in the past, and I have a degree in English. Even though it’s been a while, I suppose the sort of writing you suggest would actually be doable for me.
Another option I considered is technical writing of some sort. Do you know of any entry-level opportunities?
Thanks, again, for the heads-up!
May 26, 2017 at 6:59 pm
Jared, thanks for your comments and feedback. I think writing is a good way to earn a living, but it does take time to build up a convincing portfolio. All the best.
April 24, 2017 at 10:12 pm
Hi there, These are the really very good article sites. i want to start writing, these sites will really help me out. Thanks

Am I the only one who only sees 4/10 here? Where are the other 6 websites?
June 13, 2017 at 11:04 am
Yes, Lou, you are the only one. Everybody else clicked either Like, Tweet or Google +1 – 😉
June 27, 2017 at 6:38 am
SEO has never really had a proper home. Because it’s technical, it’s best suited for workers who have learnt the business and have practical experience. This can be quite rare with a lot of professionals though.
