$25 to $50 For Computer Articles
**The WorldStart site is inaccessible when I checked it recently. I'm assuming they are no longer in business. If anyone knows if they moved to a new domain, please let me know.
I have had a very difficult time finding anyone in the work at home community who had anything to say about World Start. Personally, I don’t think this is a bad thing. I’m assuming that the lack of reports about the company indicate that they pay on time, communicate well with their freelance contractors, and has a reasonable amount of work available.
What WorldStart is Looking for
World Start is another company that is looking for individuals who are interested in writing on a freelance basis. From what I can tell, it looks like most of the items the company needs to be written are for e-mail newsletters. The company seems to specialize in computer related content.
One of the things that I like about this company is that it doesn’t sound like the articles they need to have written are going to be highly technical. The company specifically states in their guidelines that they want articles that can be understood by newbies and experienced computer people. In addition to being informative, the articles should also be entertaining. I don’t know if World Start will provide you with a byline, but if they do, it could be a great opportunity to break into the industry!
The company makes it very clear that they don’t want to have to put much work into the articles that have been written by freelancers. You should plan on editing all articles before you submit them.
What I like About WorldStart
The thing I really like about World Start is that it looks like it’s a content mill that doesn’t look like it wants to profit by barely paying the writers. According to the company’s website, they will pay freelance writers $25 dollars for a 250-word article. The site also says that the longest articles writers will be asked to write will be 800 words for which they’ll be paid $50.
What I Don’t Like About WorldStart
The biggest concern I have with World Start is that it looks like it will take about 30 days before a payment gets sent. That’s a really long time to wait for a payment, especially if you’re just starting a work at home career. I would feel more comfortable if World Start at least paid at least every other week.
I think that if you like computers and writing, World Start is a website you should check out. www.worldstart.com/writers-guidelines
