I have spent years looking for ways to make money online, writing for a content mill was one of the ways that I found I could make money at home. Content mills buy tons of content from many freelancers. Some people don’t have a very high opinion of writing for content mills but I am not one of those people. You see I had read all the blog posts that were bashing the amount of money content mills paid their writers. I had read that there was no way to make money writing for a content mill and that they only paid pennies. Well, I am the kind of person who has to see it to believe it.
I decided to give it a shot. To focus on writing full time for a content mill. I spent 8 hours a day creating 16 articles per day to submit to the site I chose. I sold my articles for between 4 and 9 dollars each. The first week I decided to write for that particular site full time, I made over four hundred dollars! Now I will admit, I live in a rural community, the cost of living here is not as high as it would be in a big city but the fact is that I can write for that particular website and make more than minimum wage. If I were to go out and find a job, I would have to settle for minimum wage. Like I said I live in a rural community so there are not a lot of jobs available.
If you are looking to make extra money or to start working from home content mills are a great way to start. You can also write for content mills when you have no clients to work for. Writing for a content mill is a great way to start because, it will get you published and you will be able to show your clients your articles you have written online. It will also give you a great idea of how well you write. For instance, if you are consistently getting offers for two dollar than you know you need to spend some time honing in on your writing skills. On the other hand if you are getting offers for 15 dollars you know that you are a great writer and this will build your self-confidence.
You can also use content mills to get practice writing. Writing is something you have to do often if you want to get better at it. Just like anything else we do, the more time we spend writing, the better we get. If you want to begin making a living writing, content mills are the perfect place to start. Don’t listen to all the naysayers online who put content mills down. You can make a living writing for content mill! All you have to do is dedicate yourself to putting in the time to writing each and every day. Look at it just like you would any other job and submit your best writing.
