Introduction:Working as a freelance writer means actively looking for work that pays. Work doesn't magically appear in our "in" box in the morning, and we spend a great deal of time looking for gigs to pay us to write. Here are the websites I go to time after time to fill in between those jobs that actually pay some bills.
I was fortunate and found Demand Studios when they were just getting going. It was all how-to articles and at the time you could write about anything on your mind, take a picture or two to demonstrate and get paid $15. Demand Studios has grown by leaps and bounds and there have been some changes made-some good, some not so much- but I still make the bulk of my online money here. You have to apply with writing samples and be accepted.
Helium doesn't make me a great deal of money, but I know it does for other writers I know. For me, it's pennies, but it all adds up and adds to my bank account as well as getting my name out there.
This happens to be a very easy website to set up as a platform for your writing that gets your name out and offers a single URL to send potential employers too. You can set up Google Ads and make a few cents as well. Very lively community here.
I just began writing here a week ago and it's so easy to write a list in minutes. You can be silly or serious, and it's a great way to come up with ideas when you're mind is blank.
I like the fact that Triond actually looks at your work before it publishes your article. You're free to write most any type of article and the more views you get (and clicks on ads) the more you make.
If your intention is to get your name out there, it's up to you to share all your writing on social networks like Facebook and Twitter. The more you do that, the more your name, and work, show up in searches.
