Constant Content - A Great Place to Make Money Freelance Writing

If you're a freelance writer, a journalist out of work or would simply like to get into freelance writing to make an extra income, then it's well worth taking a look at the freelance writing website Constant Content.

High Returns for Your Writing Work

You can earn money at Constant Content by selling your articles, and depending on which topics you write about, you can make anywhere from $7 - $250+ per article, with the majority of articles being sold in the region of $20 - $80.

Much Better than the Freelance Job Boards

This kind of price tag for your writing work at Constant Content is, in general, a great deal better than you can expect to get on freelance websites such as Elance and Odesk. There's also no bidding system at Constant Content, so you won't waste time writing proposal after proposal, only to be out bid by someone who's prepared to work at a much cheaper rate than you can afford to. Freelance writing job boards tend to push down prices and writers can sometimes end up working hard for very little reward, especially if they are not that good at capitalizing on their strengths, marketing themselves well and valuing their writing skills appropriately.

The No Bid system ensures you don't waste time creating proposals, only to be outbid by someone willing to work for less!

In general, the longer the Article the more money you will earn
In general, the longer the Article the more money you will earn

Two Ways to Earn from Writing Articles

There are two ways to make money freelance writing at Constant Content. The first involves you uploading unique articles and then setting a price tag for your work. You can set up to 3 prices for your article; either for Full Rights which will have the highest price tag; Usage Rights which you'll price lower; and Unique Price which will be somewhere in between. All articles uploaded are checked in copyscape and any duplicate content will be immediately rejected. It's also worth mentioning that you receive 65% of the price tag on your article with 35% going to Constant Content.

Write and Sell All Kinds of Writing

You can upload unique blog posts, web articles or magazine style articles on any topic you want to. Customers then browse the site and if they want your article they will need to pay the price you have set (unless you have enabled "Best Offer", which allows the customer to offer you a price - which you are under no obligation to accept by the way.)

The system they have at Constant Content really is unique in the online freelance writing world.

You set your own prices - You decide what your article is worth.

In general, the longer the article in terms of word count the more it will be worth, but worth will also be determined by the topic and the quality of writing. As with all web content some subjects have more inherent value. You may well be able to get more for a detailed article on "How to Get a Tax Rebate" in comparison to an article on "Dream Interpretation" simply because the buyer will be able to make more money from the first example. Another advantage to writing at Constant Content is that you don't need to worry about, or even consider, selling affiliate products to make money - it's a straight transaction.

Answer Customer Requests

The second way to earn from your writing at Constant Content is to answer customer requests for specific articles. The customer will set a price range they are willing to pay per article and detail the number of words required. They'll often give you the title and tell you whether the article needs optimizing for a certain keyphrase, but this is not always the case.

Once you have written the article answering a request and it has been approved by the editor, the customer has a choice whether to buy your article or not. If they decide not to buy your article then it can stay on the "available for purchase" list or you can take it off the system and publish it somewhere else. Until the article has been purchased it's yours to do with as you wish.

Your Spelling and Grammar Will Have to be Top Notch

Extremely high editorial standards, means it can be difficult to get accepted as a writer for Constant Content with many people's accounts being suspended after just one poor submission. If your English is not perfect or very near perfect, because English is not your first language or you simply don't know the standard rules of grammar, then you will simply not be accepted.

They are extremely hot on grammar, spelling, punctuation, sentence structure etc. and each article is human reviewed for quality by their editor. If you can get your work past the rigorous reviewing process then there is certainly the potential to make a great deal of money freelance writing at Constant Content. Once you have your first 3 articles accepted and the editor feels happy with your standard of work it's a lot easier for your articles to get approved, but even seasoned writers still get the odd rejection. It's all about quality at Constant Content.

Other Members Will Help You in the Forum

But don't let these high standards put you off signing up to write at Constant Content. I actually learned a great deal in terms of grammar, punctuation etc as I worked hard to get my work approved and that has been of great benefit to me in the long term. Additionally, there is an attached forum where you can talk with other Constant Content writers to get help with your writing and discuss any other issues or successes. It's a little daunting at first, but the other writers are friendly and will answer any questions you might have.

I can certainly recommend freelance writing at Constant Content as an addition to writing on sites such as HubPages and/or the other freelance writing sites. Give them a try to see if you can take your writing to the next level.

      Nice overview, Susana.

      Okay. I'll consider it Susana.

      Definitely. But of course most of the time you are selling the rights to what you write at CC so you get a one off payment. On Hubpages work has the potential to earn for many years. It's a different thing altogether.

      Susana, I might consider it. I would make more money there than here at HP?

      I would definitely recommend it Kristen. You can earn so much more from your work than on most other sites.

      I've heard of Constant Content years ago. I believe it didn't work out. I might give it a go, if CC is still around. Very interesting. Voted up!

      Hi Susana S,

      Your hub is detailed and just what a lot of writers need to know. I will probably join Constant Content to see what happens when I finish my rehab for my broken leg.

      It is difficult to write with my leg on pillows and my body turned side ways.

      Anyway, thanks for this hub it has given me something to consider.

      Have a great weekend.

      Yes it's a lot different. For one you can earn a great deal more for your writing *if* it's of a high standard.

      Sounds worth signing up with CC, but is it any different from Textbroker or WriterAccess, Susana? I am guessing you might know those sites too.

      Hi Susana. Thanks for introducing me to Constant Content. Another great way to make money out of something I love to do that is writing. :)

      I love Constant Content. It's a great way to make a solid side income in a reasonable amount of time. I'm happy to see that you're still writing for CC years after starting! That speaks to the quality of the site.

      Over the past few months, there have been several "standing requests" on CC. These are great to write to if you want to make sales.

      The writers there just add 35% to what they think their work is worth so it works out fine! E.g. if you think your 1000 word article is worth $100 price it at $135. Also, only go for customer requests that fit in with what you would charge when you factor in the minus 35%.

    • Zsuzsi profile image

      Zsuzsi 4 years ago from Hungary

      Thanks for sharing this information with this writers' community. I'll check out their website now, though 35% off does seem a bit unmotivating by the first read. Have you been able to earn what you thought was appropriate for your articles via their services?

      Thanks for your comments and glad the article has been helpful :)

      Kris - I'd definitely advise focusing on requested content. One thing that tends to happen and I forgot to mention it in the article, is that you often get repeat customers. If someone likes your style of writing then you can get a lot of repeat work at constant content.

      Thanks for this information. I had browsed this site awhile back and wondered how many articles sit "unwanted", there there seemed to be several writers there that had posted articles but appeared to have never sold anything. Reading through the added comments here, it sounds like perhaps really focusing on the Requested Content might be the way to go.

      I have now had four articles accepted for Constant Content and I want to do more. I love it! Being able to get paid upfront for your work is a refreshing change from revenue-sharing.

      I used to English and I still had to makes some change for Ed, so I know it's strict! But it's taught me to get tighter with my punctuation, which is good!

      Thanks for this. I love CC. Just sold my first article today and the staff was helpful with all my questions. I target directly to the Requested Content section and write to it specifically. Haven't have any rejections yet and am looking to sell a series on one topic. Gotta do your research and be careful about spelling/grammar/structure. CC is probably the best of all the online write-for-cash sites I've tried. Thanks for the great hub.

      Thanks for this - really informative. I had been writing articles for a paper based publication before branching out to online articles - boy what a learning curve writing for the 'net is!

      While affiliate marketing is fun, the straight transaction is also welcomed from time to time!

      Thanks again.

      Hi Shaz - No, no links allowed. And there's no way of trying to sneak one in either as each article is meticulously reviewed - an article with a link in would get rejected immediately. At least at Contant Content you get a fair price for your work *if* someone buys it.

    • shazwellyn profile image

      shazwellyn 7 years ago from Great Britain

      This is something I would consider. What are the rules for the little insert of a backlink, do you know? Wouldn't it be great to get paid for something and then have the backlink as well - or is this wishful thinking? :)

      Dear Susana, this sounds like a great opportunity so I might give it a try. Can you please recommend a good book or a guide explaining English punctuation, sentence structure, grammar etc. I got a lot of Oxford grammar editions - to be honest, I haven't taken a look at them for a while now - but even the CAE has the simplest grammar layout.

      Hi Katie - get on over there and start earning money from your articles!

      Hi MOW - See answer above :) If you look at what articles are selling for at constant content you'll see that 300-400 word blog posts get around $10 - $20: 500 - 800 word articles average between $30 - $60: 1000 - 2000 word articles $60 - $100.

      Of course if you have some super duper unique knowledge explained in your article you can get more. I saw a request for an article on HTML 5 for $100- $250. (Wish I knew about HTML 5, lol!) Best of luck!

      Many thanks drbj and you're very welcome :)

      Hi Lorlie - What I did to find a suitable price for my work at CC was look at what others are charging for similar articles. For instance I wrote one article on SEO. I looked at other articles for sale in this topic area and saw that writers were in general charging more for this topic than in many other topics. The average seemed to be $50 - $80 for full rights and so I went with the same. I think I priced it at $30 usage rights, $45 unique rights and $60 full rights. Just look at what others are doing, particularly the writers that get the most sales, and replicate :) Good luck!

Anyway, thank you so much for your wonderfully informative hubs as always - I feel I learn something new each time! :)

      Beautifully done, Susana. I signed up as an author on Constant Content but found myself baffled when asked how much I would charge for an article. I am a new writer and have absolutely no idea how to put a monetary value on my words. HubPages is the first place I have written, and feel that perhaps I am in over my head at CC.

      How on earth does one break into this marketplace?

      Thanks so much.

      Hi Hello, hello - you'll need to read the writer guidelines and follow them strictly. They're here: http://www.constant-content.com/about/writer-guide...

      Your article will need to be written first on your PC in Word. Then sign in to your account and click on "submit article" and follow the instructions. Make sure you've selected this article is "not for a request" in the drop down menu. Once you've done this the article will go into the pool for review by the editor which can take a week or more. Good luck!

      Hello, hello, 7 years ago from London, UK

      Thank you for your timely and wonderful hub. I signed up with Constant Content and they send a lot of offers but maybe I am not the person able to write on titles suggested but I find it a bit worrrying that I can't find an atitle to write about. Now, you also mentioned about writing an article of my choice and send it to them. How do I go about that? If you would be so kind and help me there I would be very grateful.
