OK so let me set you up with a scenario. You a stay at home mom with two children and you are desperate to find work. So what do you do? You whip out your computer and go to the almighty Internet. Soon you have signed up with every single possible website that claims they will pay you for doing whatever. However, is this all legit and worth it? Well Fasten your seat belts and I will run you through some famous websites and gigs you might have heard of. As well as whether they are truly pay you or if it is just a false tale.
Triond, Helium, Associated Content- Wow, so these are the big people. Each website claims to have millions of people righting for the. They all claim they have good pay. As well as all claiming that, it is 100% legit. Well most of it is true. These websites do pay, but not enough to support an average person in the U.S. Triond, I find is quite nice it allows you to right on any topic you choose. Triond’s pay is I say between and Meh and a Ya OK kind of thing. When I started out, I made maybe about a dollar in the first month. I was disappointed. Then I wrote more and more and it is more of a 50 cent’s to a dollar and day. The payout is 50 cents, which is great. The formula for how much Triond pays you per view is still a mystery. It could be 1 dollar per 1000 views of 10 dollars per 100 views. The forms of payment are pay-pal, western union, and check. Triond also has a very easy to use interface, with everything you need. On Helium well that is different. Some of my friends use all three of the websites and they claim that Helium is not the best. From what I have heard, pay is acceptable and the flexibility is acceptable. Although the payout is 25 dollars, so that is many articles. However, Helium does have a lot of contest which serves as a bit of a balance. My friends do say however that Helium does have a lot of high quality articles. The way Helium pays you is from the ratings you get. Helium is pretty much a big mystery. AC is that any good. Well my friends claim that it is quite nice actually. They claim it is the best. It is the most popular out of the three and has an acceptable pay. However, the waiting time for an upfront payment article can be up to 1 or 2 weeks! Associated content offers 2 to 15 dollars on exclusive articles. My friends have said that they have not found many articles that pay above 7 dollars now. However you can earn money through performance payments. They pay $1.50 dollars for every 1000 views. However if you have a clout level of 7 or above you can earn possibly 50 cents more. You can learn more by going there their websites.
Therefore, while you cannot make a living off them, if you like writing then you can certainly get a couple dollars off it!
