It’s 2023, and more and more people are expected to try to find writing gigs. You might be one of them, too. If so, you’ve come to the right place because I’m going to discuss a site you might be interested in writing for.
SteadyContent is a website that connects writers with clients. They pay you to write articles.
However, is it worth writing for SteadyContent? What are the pros and cons of writing for the platform? Let’s answer those questions, as well as cover other stuff you’ll want to know before you decide whether or not to apply to become a writer with SteadyContent.
SteadyContent: What Is It
It’s a content mill, or an article writing service. Like TextBroker, they provide articles to customers. Those articles are written by authors who have been accepted as writers by the platform. Customers place orders via SteadyContent, and those orders are picked up by one of the authors.
If you’re brought aboard as a writer, then you’ll be one of those who can pick articles up from the queue of articles. Basically, this is how it works as a writer:
. Log into your account
. Check out the queue
. Choose an article to write
. Submit the completed article
. Wait for it to be approved or rejected
That’s the gist of things. Like I said before, it’s pretty much a content mill. Many content mills or article writing sites work in a similar fashion.
How Do You Make Money Writing For SteadyContent
You’ll make money by completing articles, which have to be approved. Once approved, the money will be paid into your Stripe account. When you reach the payout threshold, then Stripe will send you your money. And yes, you must have a Stripe account in order to create content with SteadyContent, if you’re from the USA. If you’re from outside the USA, then you’ll need a PayPal account.
How much money you’ll make all depends. For a 450 word article, you’ll make $9.00. which means you get two-cents per word. That’s not the best, but it’s better than what many other content mills are paying.
The Cons Of Writing For Them
First, articles can be rejected or asked to be revised. I think some clients can abuse this, but this is typical of many content mills out there. On that note, revising articles is time consuming, let alone annoying.
Second, sometimes clients include complex instructions, and other times barely any in-depth instructions are included.
Finally, the pay rate could be a tad higher. At first glance getting two-cents per word might seem high and appealing to you, but with the amount of work you’ll put in, and the amount of critique you could end up getting; two-cents per word will start to look less attractive.
The Pros Of Writing For Them
First, there can be a lot of articles on a regular basis. Even when many content mills are currently struggling, it seems SteadyContent has held its own, and the orders are still coming in.
Second pro is it’s easy to get started with them. When I tested them out, I found the approval process was quick and the application process was easy.
How To Apply
You can apply via the following link:
To be fair, the application process is straightforward and easy. But bear in mind this is a content mill.
Final Verdict: Give Them A Try
Give SteadyContent a try if you’re after a little extra money. But be aware you can get booted from the platform at any given time. Work isn’t guaranteed, either.
Just make sure you carefully weigh the pros and cons. Personally, I think creating full-time consistent income online is the way to go, but there’s nothing wrong with joing a content mill if you need money quick-ish.
Also, if you’re looking to make a little bit of money, but prefer the blogging on a platform route, then give Medium a try. Here’s an article you can check out for yourself:
