Writing PR & Marketing

Get Paid to Write or Edit

 

A handful of websites pay for articles, but unless they’re commissioning your original work, you won’t make big bucks.

Here are some other options for various assignments:

WriterFind.com
Author101.com
WritersMarket.com
WellFedWriter.com
FundsForWriters.com
MediaBistro.com
FreeLanceWritingGigs.com
WorldWideFreelance.com
AbsoluteWrite.com
Matomyseo.com
PayPerPost.com

Another option is freelance writing for magazines, trade publications, newsletters, or local newspapers. If you’ve developed a specialty or have a particular interest in a single topic—film, fashion, food, travel—many websites and small publications work only with freelancers and regularly look for writers to do reviews on products or new releases, ranging in topic from electronics to beauty.

Contact the editors of the publications you’d like to work for. (Their names and contact information can typically be found on the masthead or websites.) Ask for their writers guidelines and be ready to submit samples of your work. (This is also where links to your work from the sites listed above can come in handy.)

Compensation varies based on your experience. Novices might have to accept free products or press passes for their work. Experienced writers can expect to make anywhere from fifty cents to $2 per word. For multiple articles, you might settle on a flat rate.

Experienced editors can apply for projects on sites such as www.editfast.com.

You must use caution when visiting these sites. Even though they contain a lot of legitimate information, they also lead to links to stuff that’s not legit. Be cautious about the sites and the ads you see and NEVER respond to check-cashing, wire transfer or Western Union related offers.

Blogging

 

Blogging and media-sharing on the Internet are super hot right now, with no signs of fading any time soon. Websites with videos, personal content, and gossip are raking in advertising dollars with each click of the mouse.

You can become a professional blogger, too. Websites such as www.payperpost.com allow you to post videos and photographs, and then receive a percentage of the site’s revenue, which is generated from advertising associated with page views and clicks to the content posted by you. The harder you work to promote your own videos and photos, the more money you’ll earn.

Another way to make money is to create your very own blog at www.blogger.com. Set up your own page and create captivating content to lure readers to your stuff. Then add the site’s AdSense feature, which allows advertisements to be included on the page. Every time a viewer clicks through on the advertisement on your blog page, cha-ching! Keep in mind this only works if you’re committed to creating a blog that others would find fascinating—and you hustle to attract readers to build a following for yourself.
