Do you have a passion for writing? Creating content can be quite a profitable experience, especially since websites play such an active role in personal and business lifestyles. However, you need to keep in mind that it takes more than passion to fuel success. Not everyone is cut out to be a writer, even those who believe they have a knack for it.
Excellent Potential for Work
Because websites are such a hot item, the opportunities for a writer are quite vast. Whether you love writing about animals or you’re drawn to content about travel, just about every niche needs content developers. In fact, I have developed website content for just about every niche you can think of for various clients.
Writing content for other people isn’t the only way to make money either. I know of many writers who turned their passions into blogs with a great deal of success. However, most of them treat blogging like a regular full-time job. Very few can just sit back and write a post once a week while keeping the money rolling in.
Sites that I’ve Used to Make Money
If you’re going to be a ghostwriter, you need to know what sites are the best to use. Below is a list of websites that I use myself. I am only showing websites that have paid me and are verified as being legit sources. I know there are more out there, but these are the ones that have fed my PayPal account.
This is not a “get-rich-quick” scheme. Freelance writing takes skill, knowledge, and dedication in order to become successful at it.
|Website||Sign Up||Work Flow||Pay Rate||Overall Score|
As more websites are discovered, the numbers above will change. The site I feel with the best quality will receive a 10 while the worst quality will drop to a 1.
Eventually, I would love to expand this list to help as many writers as I can. Unfortunately, I have been so busy helping other clients that I simply don’t have the time to test any more platforms at the moment. However, I will list them here as I continue to develop this website.
My Experience as a Ghostwriter
As a professional, I’ve been helping clients with their content needs since January of 2012. It’s something I love to do. I deliver excellent work to my clients, which is why they keep feeding me work. Some of the biggest projects I’ve completed include eBooks ranging from 3500 to 25,000 words.
If there is one thing I would advise writers is to diversify the number of brokerage sites you use. Until recently, I had all three of the above sites open in my browser window while I was looking for work. Not all clients use the same system. When one site has nothing available, the other site might be full.
One last thing: always give the client exactly what he or she is asking for. I’ve completed some very odd articles in my career. Even if keywords are misspelled or the content is far out of date, the client will more than likely send it back if you don’t follow instructions. This doesn’t mean you can’t send the client a message to clear up any issues, though.
