Are you a writer looking for ways to get paid to write? Here are over 1100 places that a writer get paid.
Stop, relax and take your time to work through this post – it’s important in your writing and making money online career.
First, this post has affiliate links in, but that does not mean you pay more for anything, it just means that I will receive a small compensation if you buy something. The fact that I get compensated does not mean that I promote anything I don’t believe in.
About making money online
Sometimes I think it’s dangerous to write about making money online because some people have the perception that making money online is some kind of easy, get rich quick type of thing where you don’t even have to do any work and the money just falls out of the sky right into your lap.
Before you read any further, I want you to forget about that idea if this is you and change your mind completely or forget about making money online because with a perception like that, the frauds will catch you with their schemes and lies.
Although there is a way of making money online with absolutely no skills and not trying very hard but that one pays you very little too and you can sit in front of your computer all day and earn little bits (like cents) at a time. It’s using PTC (paid to click) like Clixsense (which according to me is the most trustworthy) and Buxenger together to view ads. You also fill in surveys, do tasks and so on. They pay out through Payza, Tango Card and Payoneer according to these conditions. They don’t use PayPal anymore. Please if you do consider it, use wisely and always stay true. If you are not honest, they will block you and you can’t earn anymore. And on the subject of filling out surveys – Don’t just trust any site that says you can make money doing surveys. Some of them just gives away your info and all kinds of people call you and others pay in points – what’s the use of points? You have to earn x-amount of points before they pay out and for some or the other reason you never reach those points and if you do and you click on that pay-out button – Nothing Happens.
What it all comes down to is if you don’t want to get paid in cents and are looking for real ways to make money online, you have to either learn some type of skill (Udemy is one of the cheapest places to learn new skills and you receive a certificate) or use the skills you have to do work with.
I am an affiliate of Udemy and that means if you buy a course there you don’t pay more but I will receive a small commission. Thank you for supporting me.
We sometimes work when others relax or sleep too because when you have a job that has to be done, you have to do it or risk losing everything you’ve worked so hard for – This sometimes means working until 4 in the morning and getting up again at 6 or 7 (after only 2 or 3 hours sleep) to start working on the next project. That’s why you need to know how to develop yourself as an internet marketer to get more done.
And then another thing is what works for one person won’t necessarily work for another. If you are not a good writer or not good with words or because of foreign language will not be able to write quality articles, don’t look for writing jobs. Rather take a look at 5 metods of making money online and see if there isn’t something else that will work for you. If you are great at typing and listening then maybe you can consider becoming a transcriber.
So go for what you know or learn a new skill, but making money online is as much a job as any other, the only difference might be that with your job you go for an interview once. When working online, you go for lots of interviews and hope you get the jobs.

With all that being said, let’s look at the 1100 plus places where a writer get paid.
Every picture of the article goes right to the source of the site where you will find the lists.
Don’t forget to pin the pics of each blog that fits your writing style, they are linked to the sites so if you pin them, it will be as if you pinned them from that site (they get the pinning juice). Why not create a board for yourself called writing jobs and save it there to make it easier to find the references again.
Side note to the creators and writers of these sites – don’t worry about the fact that you see your pins in here – they are linked to your own original pins and therefore with each one that’s pinned, you receive the links. the one’s I added my own pins for that there was nothing to pin on the site, they also go the site and not SOS – which means you receive the Pin link juice, not me.

The easiest way is to highlight the name, right click and (if you’re using Google) click on “Search Google for …”. This way it opens in a new tab and Google searches for the name (no typos or trying to remember the name correctly).
But then when you do find the right site, you have to search where and how you can apply or send your pitch to.
But it made it to this list because there is a missive amount of resources there – I hope you find what you’re looking for.
Some other ideas you as a writer get paid
If you’re a good writer and you rather want to work for yourself, you might also want to consider creating PLR products and selling them. Again if you are new to this, you will have to learn new skills and also Create a Website.
You can take a look at my PLR Master course to learn more about PLR but generally if you don’t know what it is, it is products that you create and sell to the people where you give the right to them to sell it as their own and keep 100% of the profit.
If you have a website and you’re struggling to create your own products, you can also take a look at the PLR master course – When you buy PLR, “renovate” it and sell it as your own, you have products up and ready to sell quickly and easily.With this list of 1100+ places that pay you for your writing, everyone is sure to find a writing gig that pays Click To Tweet
