Working from home is difficult, whether you do it full-time or part-time and often one method of income just doesn’t cut it and we’re always left craving more. When I started working from home, I researched extensively the different ways we can make money from it – ways that didn’t include “make something and sell it” because if you’ve seen anything I’ve ever attempted to make you’d understand that nobody would want to buy that. As an avid writer who (likes to think they can) writes about a wide variety of topics, I always thought if I could make a few extra quid thought doing that, then that would be perfect.
A long time ago now, I found Hire Writers. I had heard of freelancing websites and signed up for a few but they all seemed dreadfully complicated with points systems and what-not and quite frankly, my little brain couldn’t understand it. I’m all for simplicity (I refused to get a smart phone for years over the fear it would be too complicated) so when I discovered Hire Writers, it really clicked for me and I began using it immediately.
Hire Writers is a place for writers and clients alike and you sign up based on which side of that metaphorical coin you are on. Of course I’m talking about the writers site of the website, which is the side I use. Clients post the writing jobs they need done and the writers (like myself) can browse through those jobs and accept the ones they want to do. You’re given a time-frame to do it, often a day or 2 and you send it off and wait for it to be accepted by the client.
All the information you need about each job is right there: Key words, what they expect in the article, how long you have to complete it and how much it pays. The website works in dollars but UK freelancers need not to worry because payments are made to PayPal and currency can easily be converted. They have a low pay-out of just $10 and this is paid out every Friday.
All jobs offer a different amount and all jobs can vary wildly. I’ve wrote articles from product reviews, home pages for clients website to an article on how to complete a certain Candy Crush level! They really do vary and you’ll more often than not find a handful of articles you can complete. It won’t make you a millionaire but it’s a great website to sign up for to earn that little bit extra. As a new freelancer, this website worked a treat for me and the more I wrote and the more I saw my earnings go up, the more I wanted to do!
