Here’s an inescapable fact: There are a lot of scams out there, and low-paying content mills simply don’t pay writers what they are worth.
In this book, I’ll help you figure out where to start based on your current abilities. For example, you may need to bone up on your grammar skills and familiarize yourself with AP style, so you don’t end up working for too cheap or getting your articles rejected. Or, if you don’t want to do that, you can do what I did and just jump right in and test your skills on what I consider to be a low-paying practice company.
I’ll pass on what I’ve learned through trial and error, including which content service I have found to be the most lucrative. I’ll also tell you how I landed my first direct account, and I’ll discuss the pros and cons of writing for a middleman versus direct clients.
This is not a get rich quick scheme but a realistic, tell-all guide for breaking into freelance writing and generating at least a part-time income from home. It’s time for you to start making money from home while becoming the amazing writer you’ve always wanted to be!
What you will learn:
•Common grammar and style mistakes to avoid
•How to write a compelling article or blog post
•Which two companies will help you improve your writing
•Which company pays the fastest
•Which company to write for on a long term basis
•How to get direct accounts and why you might not want to
A content mill or content service is a company that matches writers with clients—a middleman if you will. Writing for content mills has taken me from being an absolute beginner to landing a ghost-writing gig with a high-profile client. If you have a gift for wording things smoothly and can pass a grammar test, then you could be getting paid to write as early as next week!
You won’t make much money at first, but as you get faster, writing for content companies can generate at least a part time income. Not only that, but some companies have opportunities for advancement, so you can eventually make a decent living. This book will give you an overview of the basic skills needed, so you can decide if writing web content is right for you. It will also help you prepare for those grammar tests and decide which company to write for. My easy formula for writing an article or blog post will ensure your success in producing quality content every time.

With the company I write for, you can quickly move up in the ranks and start making a lot more. Best of all, you’ll be working from home and setting your own flexible schedule.
