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.
Pro: This is a lower paying but easy company to work for that offers easy article writing for pay.
Con: Monthly payday only
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.)
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.
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
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.
