Numbers of freelance content writers are increasing everyday, likewise the scope of earning from content writing also. You can definitely earn a handsome amount by writing a book and getting it published; but “writing a book and getting it published” may sound easy but trust me it isn’t. So how most freelancer are sticking to “earn from home job” instead of looking for a 9-5 desk job?  I’ll you how.

Freelance content writer, like myself, contribute articles on various websites which offer a compensation based on the traffic receives or a fixed compensation. On some websites you can put your own Google Adsense code from where you can earn a long term passive income depending on the demand of the topic of the article and of course quality. There are many sites which compensate writers for contributing articles. Top 6 websites to get paid for contributing articles are as follows:



Squidoo is probably the best and most loved websites for freelance writers because of its user friendly interface and the fees it pays. You can publish your article immediately by following the required guidelines and optimizing it with images and formatting it with headings and subheadings. When a lens (published articles are called Squidoo lens) is published, Squidoo automatically include ads from affiliate network, mostly Amazon, within your published lens. The 50% of the income that the ads generate are sent to the article author through Paypal or can be donated to the author’s desired charity.


This is similar to the Squidoo programme. Here after you create a “hub”, Hubpages will automatically post ads related to your content. Here also the ads generate from Hubpages associate affiliate network, like Amazon amd ebay or from Google Adsense. After you have reached the minimum payout your income will be sent to your Paypal account. The minimum amount is $100 for Google Adsense and $50 for the affiliate networks. Both the thresholds are easy to reach, just write quality content and do some little SEO on it.


Triond allows you to submit articles (in-directly) on popular websites relevant to the article niche. Users submit article on Triond then Triond approve or disapprove the article depending on their guidelines and then they publish your article automatically on websites which are associated with Triond. You get paid 50% of the income generated from the article (from direct advertising).

It is quite different from the above mentioned network. Here you have to write and submit a unique content. You will be notified if it is approved by the editors. Then your articles will be available

for buyers. After you have accumulated $25 you can withdraw the fund to your Paypal. The price per article of the articles ranges from $1.5 to $30. So you will be paid depending on the article’s topic, optimization or writing style. As low quality articles are not approved so buyers can choose any article from any price range without fearing about its quality. Registering as a content writer or as a buyer is also easy and free of cost.

Unlike, registering on is very tough and time taking. You will have to be an already experienced and professional content writer or journalist to get yourself registered. You cannot just apply to contribute on any topic of your choice. They have editors and contributor for almost every topic. You will have to choose a topic which does not already have a contributor or editor. You will have to submit your resume and if the “super editor” approves your resume then you will be able to register and then contribute. Once you have registered then earning from there is not a rocket science. You donot have to optimize your article for SEO, you will only have to write a quality article which will be beneficial for the readers. Your article will automatically get ranked on Google first page. also pays a cut from Google Adsense income.


Probably the best place for freelancers from every niche. If you have any skills (does not limit to internet marketing) you can earn from Fiverr. I have made my first income from Fiverr J. Here you can post a free ad about your service, in this case about your content writing skills. As soon as a buyer posts an order, you will be notified to your registered email id. Then you will have to complete and submit the work within the Estimated Time mentioned in your gig. If you fail to do so your client may cancel the order or may give you more time to complete it. This depends upon the client and your luck!  There is no minimum payment, you can withdraw as low as $4 to your Paypal account. $4 is the minimum you will make from one order. Fiverr takes $1 per order. I know people who makes $500-600 per month from Fiverr just by content writing.

The above mentioned ways are not the ultimate ways of earning money from writing articles. There are many more ways and sources by which you can make money by contributing articles. If you are a skilled web designer looking for passive income from content writing, I recommend you to visit weblogs like Speckyboy, Designmodo and many similar web design blog which pays contributor as soon as their article is approved. The payment ranges from $30-$50 per article and sometimes even upto $150 per articles. When the question is about freelance writer fees, Sky is really the limit! If this information proves beneficial for you and you earn from it, don’t forget to send me a cut to my Paypal account. Just Kidding!


  1. I found Hubpages and Triond the best among them, strict publishing policies and only original contents are approved there, I’m big fan of Hub-pages because its perfect source to get authentic information.

    I’m having a hard time getting a nice deal at fiverr.

    • Hey Claire,
      Don’t worry. Rome was not built in a day. If you have posted an article writing gig, then I can give a suggestion that increase the number of articles you will provide for $5. If the number of articles is 3 then you may get offer. I know 3 articles for $4 (this you will get after fiverr deducts $1 fee) is very low still it is a worth trying. Once you have become a top rated seller you will start getting good offers.
      Best of luck!
