High-End Article Writing Services With Instant Payouts Through PayPal

Profile picture of the author hyderkhan by hyderkhan Posted: 04/01/2012
Anyone know of any article writing services, similar to iWriter.com, where writers can get paid directly via PayPal instantly / daily / weekly monthly, except where the article assignments pay on the high end?

Those familiar with iWriter already know that the average rang for articles is anywhere between $2.00 to $10.00 per article, depending on experience.

Any equivalent services out there where authors can get paid much more per article?

eg) $20, $25 ... $50 or more per article?

Basically a "high end version of iWriter"?

As an experienced / freelance writer, I've written articles on iWriter, but their rates per articles are ridiculously low and simply not worth the investment of time for the money.

    I've just yesterday signed up on textbroker. I haven't seen what the gigs are like, but there seems to be potential for decent paying jobs. You get paid more per article after proving yourself.

    They pay out weekly via paypal if you choose. Here's the link to their rates/payment page. Unique content - Textbroker.com

    If a site such as the one you are looking for exists, I have yet to find it. Content mills such as iwriter usually pay on the lower end of the writers wage scale. If you are looking to provide high end content that produces a quick and lucrative payout, you are going to have to build personal relationships with those looking for your kind of work.

    Think about it, if there were a content mill that payed $25 per article every Dick and Harry "article writer" would flock there and flood the place with crappy content. It just isn't practical in my opinion. That's why those looking for high quality content seek out the writer (or are sought out) on a personal level.

    MANY iWriter writers build full-time clients working on iWriter and are earning that $25+ per article using the iWriter platform. What many don't realize, is this is very common, but it's not visible on the outside because these projects are 1 on 1 projects and not public.

    I too write for iWriter and I can tell you that Brad is a great guy, honest to the core. I too have a feeling that I earn a bit low on it. If Brad can look into the writer earning factor in iWriter I am pretty certain to return to it again. I insist again that Brad is a fantastic person.

    Although I agree with Joe, not all writers can strike a kind of good relationship with task providers. It is where the investment of time comes into play. If a standard iWriter can earn $3.50 for a 500-word article it would be more encouraging for the other writers. Not all writers are top-iWriters either. Having said so, I would like to say that Brad is the best judge. He is the owner of the site and he knows better than any of us here as to how to run the site. Thanks Brad for looking into what I have written.

    I also write for iWriter but have realized that lately there is no work. I log in everyday but before I can go through the gigs, they are all gone if any.

    I think you may be right! I just logged onto iWriter, and there are only 53 available projects, of which only 2 of them pay above $10.00 per article, and only 4 of them pay between $5.00 and $9.99 per article. All the rest are less than $5.00 per article (in terms of author payouts).

    There used to be a lot more, I feel... But then again, it is a Monday morning as I write this... perhaps people haven't logged onto the site yet to post their requests for this week...

    If the site is indeed being used for private requests where the payouts are much higher (eg - $25.00 per article), I have yet to see how you can convince a requester whom you just wrote a series of $5.00 articles for, that you really should be charging them $25.00 per article for ongoing work.)

    Calm down now, I wasn't attacking your baby. We are supporting the same point, anyways. Build a personal relationship to get higher paying clients. I never said where you would have to find these people, just that you would have to find them.

    The OP was looking for a place where the base payout would be around $.05 per word. I haven't seen a site like that anywhere.

    Pecan,

    Thanks. I just signed up with them last night as well. I also find another site: htt://www.writeraccess.com with higher payouts, but it looks like their payouts are monthly rather than weekly.

    Looks like membership isn't automatic on either of these sites, as you have to go through a rather complex application process to get accepted.

    Thanks.

    Check out The Content Authority. They pay you up to $3 per 100 words if I am not mistaken.

    You could also take a look at Constant Content where you get to decide how much you want to sell your articles for.

    For the content mill to pay $25 they would have to charge the clients $50 or more. Most writers who can command that much money already have steady clients, which is why content mills typically cater to the lower end.

    Not sure what you're looking at but there are 100x more requests than 53... I'm seeing 6 full pages of "standard" requests. 25 per page. And each project usually has many more than 1 article requests in it. This is just for standard requests. I'm seeing 117 premium and 16 elite projects. Each project usually has 3+ requests in it. that's something like 700+ open requests.

    I'm not getting into the bash Iwriter thing because if you are a quality writer and you spend your time begging for $3 articles you've settled for mediocrity.

    There are many avenues that'll appreciate your craft and pay you for it IF you go outside of the norm and become creative.

    It's all about building solid LONG term relationships with your clients and showing them consistent value.

    If you're not happy with your situation change it!

    There is an Ocean of high paying clients out there if you can transcend your craft and make it just irresistible.

    iWriter (and sites like it) have their place and provide a good service HOWEVER it's equivalent to working at McDonald's - good for the work experience but don't plan on making a lucrative career out of it.

    You have to get creative when finding work as a freelance writer. Sites that do the work of finding your clients for you will always pay low. You may do better on Warrior for Hire. If your writing is top notch you won't have any problem commanding a top rate.

    *Sigh* OK, let me try this again.

    The OP was looking for a website where people would consistently pay $.05 or more per word. Such a site does not exist. Look at your own site:

    Standard: The writer ends up taking home a payout of less than $.01 per word.

    Premium: There are a lot that are still paying out at under $.01 per word, as of this post not a single one goes over $.02 per word.

    Elite: All over $.01 per word, but just 3 of the 16 current projects even clear $.02 per word.

    The OP is probably looking for a site that would be something like this I imagine:

    Standard: At least $.05 per word

    Premium: Maybe $.075 per word

    Elite: $.10 per word

    Yes, it's true that the requests in iwriter has reduced. Though there are a lot of projects in the standard section, good requests are less. Good requests meaning, requests where the client asks according to the money he/she's paying and requests by clients with a good approval rate. I'm a premium writer there and the premium requests are even lesser.

    Can you do something about this Brad? I like iwriter and don't want to lose it as a writing platform.
