When I first started working online a few years back, I wrote articles and got paid for it. I was new to online freelancing and was receiving $1 an article then (ouch! I know, that’s pretty cheap). Because I didn’t know better I continued writing for that rate for a few months. Then, I thought that the quality of my articles didn’t really deserve the $1 rate, so I scoured writing opportunities online.
I came across a site that paid writers instantly through their PayPal account once they reached their payment threshold. I loved the instant payment part so I signed up with them. I got approved after sending in a trial article. Today, the process of getting accepted to the site is much different. You just have to sign up (free, of course) and then you can start getting assignments from their bulletin board.
The site’s name is LondonBrokers.net. When you first start out, you will only have a quota of 2 articles. This means that you have to finish 2 articles before getting another set of 2 articles to write on, etc. You can ask for a quota increase if you want to increase the number of articles to work on per set, but I suggest doing this when you have an established relationship with them already.
You can get as much as $6.60 per assignment, which would take about an hour to an hour and a half to complete. So, if you work 5 hours a day, you are paid approximately $30 for that. The payment depends on the number of words too, so the higher the word count, the higher the payment rate is.
They also have an excellent support team and help guide so if you find yourself wondering what to do next after your application, you won’t be lost. Article guidelines are also set for each article assignment. Payment is made through Paypal/Payoneer every Tuesday and Friday. To further inspire you to write, they have a guide on how to earn $300/week (roughly, 12,000 pesos, and that’s per week!)
One important thing to remember is the deadline for the article you are working on. Deadlines are posted along with the article details so you know when they are due. TIP: If you want to succeed as an online article writer, then you must meet your deadlines. Their system will remind you though if your deadline is nearing and if you don’t do anything about it and miss your deadline, your article will be assigned to another writer. Missing several deadlines will reduce your article quota and will lead to the suspension of your account. If you cannot submit an article on time due to acceptable reasons, be sure to let their support team know so they can extend your deadlines a bit.
What I like about LondonBrokers.net is the fact that they have work available all throughout the week, so there’s no need for you to wait for your next assignment. They also accept writers from different countries as long as you have good command of the English language.
