Success for Getting Paid to Write Articles

Updated on March 24, 2010

You really can make some extra cash writing articles.

But recently, though, others have stated that they have not been paid for their hard work while writing these articles. Article writing takes some research and know how to put together a worthwhile read. There are various websites that offer to connect you with a potential employer looking for a good and fast writer. The employers want the article fast but some are slow to pay up or don’t pay at all. There are many ways to avoid these kinds of employers within sites.

If you truly are a freelance writer, copywriter or whatever freelancer you may be, go to a reputable website. Reputable websites attract someone that is truly looking for a writer or freelancer with the skills that they are seeking. Always be sure to keep your account information to yourself. You should never personally need to pay anything upfront to be able to make some money writing online.

If you decide to use one of the many freelance websites, apply or bid on jobs that have an employer with lots of good feedback. Make sure that you do this. Someone that isn’t going to pay you can take your article and use another account name the next time around and continue to rip others off. It’s unfortunate that there are so many dishonest people out there, but it doesn’t take many to ruin the reputation of everyone out there looking to hire.

Do not settle for pay that is not pleasing to you. When you do this you not only keep the prices low for every other freelancer, but you also do your work for almost nothing. If an employer truly wants an article that is well written than he will pay a little bit extra for it.

If you are looking at writing impressive pieces, do some research. Learn and use proper grammar and capitals. Learn what you can about the different styles of format required of you. And always proofread your work. This can be a problem sometimes for a writer, as they may not see their own mistakes. But if this is something that you enjoy and aspire to, then by all means, go for it. The more you write and proofread, and continue to improve, the better you are sure to get. Remember that practice makes perfect, and if not perfect than close enough to it. Writing articles is a skill that will develop over time. Some have a natural flare for it while others may continue to be mediocre. Your work as an article writer is in high demand right now, so don’t under value what you are doing, it is worthwhile. Market your skills to potential employers. Value your time and effort and don’t settle for anything less. Keeping with this way of thinking will help you to feel happier and more accomplished at what you do.
