5 Places To Get Paid To Write Articles

If you’re looking for beginner freelance writing jobs or filler writing work for your down time, the following five writing companies hire new writers on a regular basis. How much do freelancers get paid to write articles? That can vary from $3-$100 per article depending on many factors. General article writing pay for the below companies ranges on a scale of just below  .01/word  to .02/word or slightly better.

Below are rated worst pay to best pay with pros and cons for each company.

Content Gurus

Pro: This is a lower paying but easy company to work for that offers easy article writing for pay.

Con: Monthly payday only

Textbroker

Pro: Plenty of work available and twice monthly pay. This company also hires writers on a graded system. The better you’re graded, the better you are paid.

Con: lower pay, US writers only

Need An Article.Net

Pro: This site offers regular paying writing work as well. What many like about them is that they pay weekly on Friday nights

Con: non compete clause may limit your own career pursuits and pay is on the lower side

(their website doesn’t offer a writer’s application so you’ll need to contact them through their e-mail address if interested in applying.)

Quality Gal

Pro:This is a slightly better paying writing gig that offers regular writing work with a graded system so the better the quality, the more money you earn. Company is: We Build Pages

Con: This established company has a great reputation and offers decent rates but some suggest the research work involved can be a bit high for the pay at times.

Demand Studios

Pro: Plenty of work writing how to articles for good weekly pay. DS pays writers, editors, transcribers, and videographers.

Con: Some limits on how many weekly articles new writers can do, and strict style guides to follow

Get Paid to Write Articles

All the above companies offer a system whereby writers can claim articles from a content management system and all offer a somewhat automated payment system as well where writers are paid via PayPal.

I am a busy freelance writer, blogger, and consultant that isn’t working with any of the above content companies as I do have regular clients and some private “filler” sources of writing work and also write for passive income that has unlimited potential but I do hear good (to mostly good) things about the above content companies hiring and paying freelance writers  on a constant basis so they are a great starting point for beginners or a great option for filler work for writers as well.
