Write Amazon Reviews and Get Free Products

I recently discovered Reviewsio. A friend of mine has been writing reviews for the products there for quite some time, and she loves it. I decided to give it a try. 

Signing up is really easy and there were deals for me to take advantage of right away. I requested a selfie stick (for my teenager), an ice mold that makes round ice cubes, a silicon baking mat, a garlic press, and a dry bag - all for free! Then I picked up a bottle of liquid vitamin C for $.50 and a non-stick donut mold for just $.10. There are additional items at a discount as well, but I like to stick with the free and almost free. 

It can take a bit of time after requesting the products to get approved, but it is so worth it. After you receive the product, simply write a review. This review can be good or bad. 

You'll earn points too, and this is all extra. Those points can be redeemed for an gift card, and since there really isn't anything you can't buy on Amazon, I'm sure you'll be able to find something to spend the extra money on. 

I save my Amazon gift cards for purchasing Christmas gifts. 

If you enjoy writing product reviews, then this is the gig for you. You can sign up below.

BuyKewordArticles is Hiring

I just got the word that BuyKeywordArticles (BKA) is hiring. I did a quick search to find out if they were legit, and I found two reviews that stated they were.

BKA has a pay scale between 1 cent per word and 5 cents per word. They start everyone out at 1 cent, and move you up based on performance and talent. Now 1 cent per word is very low pay for a freelance writer, but it is this type of company that I highly recommend for a beginner. It allows you to work your way up, while developing a resume. 

When I first got started writing online, I started with a company that doesn't pay very well. I worked my way up in that company, which led to higher paying jobs. Now I can be a bit pickier about the freelance work I take on.

So, if you are just starting out, or you really need another writing egg and you don't mind the 1 cent per word until you can be promoted, then go ahead and apply for BKA by clicking HERE!

FYI: I don't get paid anything to tell you about this company. Just sharing the info in case you are looking for another company to write for.

Master Content Mill List

I found a Google site that has a Master Content Mill List. Content mills are great eggs to have when you don't have any private client work. I have a few mills I work for on a regular basis.

Content mills are also great for individuals who are just starting out in their freelance writing career. I got my start with Yahoo! and I am extremely grateful to them for that. In fact, I still earn a nice residual income from the articles I wrote for them.

Just to let you know, I don't earn a penny from telling you about this list. I just thought it was a helpful resource and wanted to share it with anyone in need.

So here you go:

PS. I noticed a few of the links are outdated, but there is still a ton of information here. I guess the author just adds to the list without checking old links.

Become an Editor for BellaOnline

BellaOnline is currently accepting applications to some of their established sites. Sorry, they aren't adding any new categories just yet, but if you are passionate about any of the available topics, I highly suggest you apply. You can see a list of available topics here: BellaOnline Available Topics

I am currently in training as their Healthy Foods Editor, and I am loving this company. I should mention that you do not get paid to contribute at BellaOnline, however, you are allowed to earn affiliate income.

This company is excellent if you desire to learn more about writing online and there is a great deal of training to help you. The training is broken down into lessons that are easy to follow and understand, which is perfect for beginners. I'm not a beginner, and I'm still learning plenty of things that I didn't know.

Another thing I like about BellaOnline is that they truly care about their editors and want their editors to succeed. They ask the editors if there is any aspect of writing and publishing they want to learn, and then they provide that information.

I can't wait until I finish with my training so that I can show you my site. Until then, you can learn more about becoming a BellaOnline Editor here: Overview - Become a BellaOnline Editor

PS. I don't make a dime for telling you about this company. I'm doing so because I truly believe in the company and found it to be an excellent avenue for any writers out there.

Writers Domain is Hiring

I just started working for Writers Domain. They are hiring new writers right now, so I suggest you apply without delay before they close their doors.

First, you should know that the pay is on the low side. When I decide to take a job, I look at the hourly wage. I'll give you an example. Let's say company A is paying $10 for a 500 word article, but they require a great deal of research and reference links. One article takes you an hour to do, leaving your hourly wage at $10. Now company B pays $3 for 200 word articles and requires no research, so you are able to get done 6 in an hour. That means you'll be making $18 an hour, which is an acceptable wage.

Second, I want to let you know that this company does require you to submit a 200 word sample article. Normally, I don't do sample articles because most companies will accept a link to your previous work. I made an exception for this company due to the many glowing reviews I got from other writers.

Third, be prepared to take a quick grammar quiz. You have to pass in order to write for Writer's Domain, but I found the quiz quite easy and you are allowed to take it twice if you don't do well the first time.

Finally, the hiring process is very fast. It only took 24 hours for me to hear back from the company that I was accepted. Here is a link to Writers Domain's website: Writers Domain

Bubblews: A Promising New Revenue Share Site

I have a writer friend that just introduced me to Bubblews. This site is a revenue share site, meaning you won't make any money upfront for your work. Instead, Bubblews will pay you for each unique view, like, comment and social media share. Unlike other rev share sites, Bubblews splits its profits 50/50.

My friend stated she was seeing an average $13 earnings for every 1000 page views. I only get $2 for this many page views over at Yahoo!

What I like best about this site is that you can submit old articles and link to where they are originally being held (so long as you retain the rights to the articles). If you wish to create fresh content, your posts only have to be a total of 400 characters (that's characters not words).

I am excited about the potential this website holds. Before I leave you, I should also let you know that you can cash-out every time you reach a total of $25.

Update: I have cash-out twice and can vouch that Bubblews does indeed pay their users so long as all of the rules are followed. I am really loving this site!

Write for Textbroker

Textbroker is a great writing company to get started with. I have personally worked for them with excellent results.

Signing up for Textbroker is as easy as providing your name and email address. Textbroker will then ask for a short article. Normally, I don't like doing sample articles for people when I have plenty of online samples they can review, but it is worth it if you are new to the field. Your article will be graded with either a 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5. In my experience the company almost always starts writers out with a 3.

Your number determines which pool of article titles you can choose from. Obviously, the higher your number, the higher you get paid per word. It only took me 4 articles before the company bumped me up to a level 4.

What I like about Textbroker is that you get to choose which titles you want to write. The rates are also clearly displayed so there is no guessing about what you will be paid.

Once you've proven yourself, you can try to join some Teams. TeamOrders usually pay more per word. You may also get a DirectOrder from a client if he likes previous work you've completed.

Paypal is the designated form of payment. Paypal will pay weekly, but you have to remember to request payout.
