 I write for helium.com - I definitely reccommend they're very fair, personal, responsive- and always pay out!

How do these work? It sounds too good to be true...you write about something you know and they pay you? Is it that simple? Am I missing something? Like, do they only choose one out of a thousand submissions? Sorry if these are stupid questions, but this sounds really great, so of course, I'm suspicious. Any info would be much appreciated!

Good Afternoon-

Sorry I do not peruse these forums very frequently. Getting paid to write is certainly not too good to be true.

The catch is you need to devote time upfront to be paid later. I only write for helium and myself so I cannot 

vouch for other websites. Helium works like a liason between writers and writers. You will not get rich quick,

nor should you go quitting your job in the near future, but you can earn some spare paper in a variety of ways.

I'll throw out a quick overview-

1. Helium offers upfront payments, ranging from 0.50 to 2.50 each (progressive)  for articles written under most categories (excepting creative writing or recipes etc).

2. The Marketplace lists assignments direct from publishers paying $10-$200 if your work is chosen. I've sold a nice handful of these, you are typically competing against 5-15 others.

3. You can write under any title and publish your article nearly instantly. These are considered stock content, earn ad revenue, and potentially chosen

by publishers- generally $10 for one time printing. Many unsold marketplace articles transition here as well.

4. Write for contests, those finishing in places 1-3 receive a cash reward.

5. Invite friends and you can receive a small percentage in return. I haven't really taken advantage of this one, however I know many do.


I really enjoy writing for helium, it is very easy and rewarding. I sold my first article within a few weeks of signing up. However I will say that

it has taken about a year to get substantial revenue. In the meantime I have really built up my portfolio.

If you have some free time I really recommend looking into it.

If you are willing to learn Search Engine Optimization (not as intimidating as it sounds!) you can make some money on sites that pay you for page views. I write for Associated Content, Helium, and Bukisa.

If you are willing to apply and to submit a writing sample, try textbroker. I do just afew short (300 words or so) assignments per month and make a quick $20 to $50 a month just from that site. Unlike the pageview sites, however, your textbroker articles are sold to others who will own them and publish under their name.

Hope this info helps somebody.
