Generate Additional Income at Writers Needed
** I can't seem to access this site anymore. I'm not sure if it's just a glitch or they went out of business.
One of the hardest things about using your writing skills to earn a living while working from home is generating a steady workflow. There always seems to be some weeks when you can’t keep up with the number of projects when you come in, and then other weeks where you’re lucky if one or two projects comes your way. That’s why it’s always a good idea to have an open account with at least one content mill, such as Writers Needed.
Applying to Writers Needed
Applying to Writers Needed is a very simple process. I love the fact it doesn’t involve lengthy tests like some of the other content mills I’ve explored lately. All you have to do is fill out their application which should only take you a few minutes, add a couple of writing samples, and wait for them to get in touch with you. They generally respond in about 24 hours, though it may take longer on the weekends, holidays, or if they have gotten a surge of applications.
One of my favorite things about Writers Needed is that they pay more than many of the content mills I’ve dealt with in the past. Writers Needed pays anywhere from $11 to $13 for each article you submit. In comparison, Blogmutt, which is a well-respected site that always has a great deal or work available for clients who have high expectations and need very detailed articles only pays $8 per article. Writers Needed expects articles to be a minimum of 300 words long.
The company currently pays its writers every two weeks. The payments will be deposited into your PayPal account.
What I Like About Writers Needed
One of the things I really like about the website is that I don’t have to write articles and cross my fingers the client will like them. The way the writing program has been set up, I can communicate directly, though anonymously, with the client and learn as much as I can about the writing style they prefer and any questions I have about the topic I’m writing about.
The other thing I love about the site is that it has a fairly steady amount of work available, making it a good source of income when I have a little extra time or one of my other sources of work at home income has run dry.
If you have strong writing skills and don’t mind working for a content mill, send in your application and writing samples to Writers Needed. I think you’ll be happy with the results.
