Are you willing to invest time and effort in writing sites that pay for views and reactions?

Are you willing to invest time and effort in writing sites that pay for views and reactions?

I'll be honest. I only start writing when there's a writing assignment with a fixed fee or reward. Hence, I have never joined sites that pay writers for article views, buzz, or interactions. 

While some may view these sites as potential sources of passive income, I believe that I can use my time better by working on freelancing sites with assured payment. For example, if I have three hours to spare, I can take on a transcription work and earn between $2 to $3. I can also take on a short writing assignment somewhere and get paid a flat fee.

Of course, that's just me, and I always need to earn real money now and not tomorrow, next month, or next year. In addition, some sites are better than others. There are writing sites that pay a small flat fee plus bonuses for reaching a preset number of views. 

How about you? Are you willing to invest your time and effort in sites that will pay you for views or other members' reactions? Are you currently a member of such site? Share your experience!

I also tend to have a lazy approach towards sites that do not disclose the exact renumeration I can expect fot the work I do. I mean it is great and all to think longterm but when you have an idea of the exact amount to expect you can decide on the effort to put in.

From the onset, you can be able to figure out how much you are going to make from the first few days. I have been a freelance writer for years now and one thing that I have come to realize is that you can't just make it big in a day as what matters is taking it a step at a time.

Very correct my friend. Having such systems in place even enables one to plan and manage themselves properly. And you are also prepared mentally such that you will not set the expectations too high.

I agree with you. Considering the fact that we could really from writing, having an expected earning could help us control how much effort we should put into a project. It also sets as an inspiration to do the work. You just have to consider your earnings as your bonus and your experience will be your prize after each work you've done.

I agree with the fact that experience that experience is the most important thing in the overall but a little motivation along the way would be nice. Take for instance when you have no other income means and you need funds for purchasing the internet bundles to be able to post the content.

I totally agree. You might need some invesment for you to start working. I, myself, invest by buying data packs for me to be able to work through online. So on the end, I will likely find if I successfully made my money grow or not. That's why I would like to invest it on something that will surely pay me after all.

You brought up a point that others may have overlooked. Many of these writing sites eventually go under even before they can pay the writers the amount due them. Other sites get sold and the new owner simply discontinues the reward system. You know the drill. For the writers, that means precious time and efforts down the drain.

If you ask me then I will say that time is the most important resource there is. I mean we all start somewhere and are given 24 hours. How we use that then determines our life journey and achievement of goals.

I have the same approach as you are. If I'm not very sure about how much will I earn, I don't work that hard because I'm not very motivated because I have hesitations like 'will I be payed with the effort I'm giving' and etc. That's why I only focus on jobs that have set clear information about how much will I earn.

It is always great to have an expectation right from the onset. I myself find myself always motivated by money which means that the more I have to earn the better and it gives me a kick to initiate and do it well.

Same here. After all it's the reason why we're working and using our energy - to get payed. Money is also my motivation in doing a great job on the tasks that I'm working with. However, in terms of my real profession which is teaching, I don't put up a lot of emphasis on money because it's the least that I am focusing due to the possibility that I might not teach my students well and properly because I'm too centered on my paycheck which is what my professor did in college, he always complains about his salary during class.

ooh that is too bad friend. I cannot imagine having to spend a whole lecture listening to someone who has issues with the administration but they fail to talk it out with them and instead complain during the time they have to be teaching.

Hahaha. Too bad mate he's too old enough and isn't very literate with computers. Exactly, I don't hate him, but I hate how he doesn't talk with the administration because of his ego and his fear.

Well, we all have different views know issues like this as what I always look for is how I can be able to earn while doing what I enjoy most, which is writing. Whether the pay is not cool is a little concern to me. We learn everyday from the things that we write and that is pretty great as well.

I admire your positive perspective on the matter. I myself feel similarly when it comes to writing. Writing is a passion of mine, so I’ll take any sort of work that could possibly pay me for writing.

Of course, it’s important to make some sort of living, but if I have the spare time, I don’t mind taking risks with writing even if it doesn’t pay off. Even if I don’t end up making some money, it’s still more experience where I can hone and perfect my craft.

Yes, I am willing to write for them only if the site is receiving a healthy volume of traffic. It wouldn't be worth writing for a site that relies on page views from other users and pays you based on that. If they have low traffic, the writer should be paid depending on the quality of their writing.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

coolavender

In most cases, you have to bring the traffic to the site by sharing your article with friends on social media. If you have lots of friends or if you can maximize social media sites and platforms, it wouldn't be too hard to send 1,000+ unique traffic to your post. Some article writing sites pay between $1 to $2 for each 1,000 unique views. These sites usually require original articles with 500 to 1,000 word count. You may have to do some research to provide useful content.

I'll probably do it if I have nothing else to do but this never happens. There are always more worthwhile things to do like updating my own blog or taking free online courses to improve my skills.

It can be helpful trying to determine if it’s worth it for the time invested, for sure. In my opinion I like knowing as a certainty that I’m getting paid, rather than doing a ton of work that doesn’t get immediate interest/views and getting paid nothing or a really small amount for the time I spent on a project.

There is no productive writing if a writer do not wish to invest time and effort with it, this applies to every craft. Personally speaking I do invest time and effort in writing much more in fact than I do studying. I do nor see this as being problematic but an ample scarifies I needed to do to further my career. Well, I do write for the sole purpose of satisfying and calming the voices in my head. This being said I would like to clarify that writing for passion and writing for money has different pleasures. While I personally think that writing for passion makes me at ease, writing for money online that pays for views and reactions has its own magic. People are please with money and frankly I like it, but I do not bow down to if just to clarify. It's just that being able to do what you really want and actually being paid for it is hitting tow birds with one stone.

I wouldn't write for a site that promises to pay per view. Many of the people who own these sites are only after getting content which they don't have to pay for. Sure the promise of revenue being shared might entice a number of writers but if I can make money on that site and have to promote the content I write in order to get more views, I'd prefer instead to publish what I would write for that site on my blog and probably make money.

A better revenue sharing model was one like about dot com's. Their writers were paid $500 a month and they'd also make money from views. Now if I found a site which offered something that is as good, I'd be willing to invest my time to create content for them.

I’m definitely not about the whole “pay per view” writing scheme. It’s a really unstable way of trying to make a living. One article might go viral and you might be able to pay the month’s bills from that alone, but then things might go dry for weeks on end. You can’t really budget anything with that sort of system.

Doing things for a flat rate is the best way to go, because that way you can be more secure about your income and actually budget your lifestyle. Pay per click/view writing should only be a side gig for some minor passive income.

amelia88

Agreed. I’ve always been someone who prefers the safe, definite option, rather than any “maybe” options. I hear what you’re saying completely, that some months it may be feast and some may be famine. For me it’s too difficult to work like that, particularly with a young family.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

DenisP

You make a good point about raising a young family. The circumstances are entirely different if you’re a bachelor like myself.

I have some savings and several forms of online income, so I’m open to taking risks. If one month happens to flop and I don’t make much money, I’m not at much of a loss. But if I had a wife and child to look after and support, I wouldn’t be able to take those kinds of risks.

You want to be sure that you’re going to have food to put on the dinner table.

I think that’s ultimately what it comes down to - time. If you have other paid gigs where you’ve got definite income, it’s safer and easier to prioritize those over “maybe” income earners.

Time is definitely the most important resource when it comes to this work, and any sort of work really. The way you prioritize your time and effort is going to make all the difference when it comes to how much money you make. It’s important to invest your time into more secure endeavors that you know are guaranteed to pay off, and then if you still have some time to spare, experiment with things that might pay off.

This is a great point, and something I hit on when I commented about this topic just a second ago. Since I have a couple other income methods that pay me better than writing, and I don't have the time to dedicate to a lot of freelance writing jobs for clients, putting that time toward writing for "pay-per-view" sources just works a little better for me.

I’m much the same in that I don’t really like signing up for something unless I know I’m going to get paid. The chance of going paid or going viral isn’t really enough of an incentive for me, since it tends to be a needle in a haystack of articles that does actually take off like that.

My main line is writing views and opinion on varied subjects. I have not checked on transcription jobs because I might not have the time. With the posting about different subjects, my mind is sometimes stretched that I feel energetic in thinking. Besides, I also learn from what I read with the contents of the site. I know that earnings are meager just like coins but they seem enough for me for the moment.

For me its a big yes because if writing really gets into you surely you won't hesitate in wriying articles even though its time consuming.

I don't see it that way, as a freelancer whatever the site is as long as it pays and if I can accommodate it meaning if the time spent on it to earn is acceptable to me then it's okay.

You are very correct my friend with that assertion on finding good paying freelance sites as like a needle in a haystack nowadays because there are just few of them that are legit these days.

I agree. With freelancing there is no guaranteed income. If you stick to the sites that you think will guarantee your income, you never make an real headway. You end up making minimum money and this will get you nowhere very fast. You also never really develop your skill. Like everything in life you are moving backwards or forwards. I believe these sites are moving back wards. I think you limit what you can achieve online.

It is always nice to know how much you are going to get. Working freelance, that can be a great incentive to get on and finish an article or similar. However, I don't think there is anything wrong with joining the other kind of site you mention. After all, you could make friends or good contacts. There is some good advice I was given and use. Always create as many streams of income as you can. Spend your time where the money comes in, but fill in with the other things. Spread your net wide as any site can fail or refuse to pay and that $5 on something tin-pot might just buy the coffee to keep you out of the rain while you write the article that makes your fortune.

I think if you find writing interesting and easy, it wouldn't matter if you earn only per view. In a way it is similar to blogs. A lot of people are into writing one without even sure if they will get paid. When they get a lot of visitors in their blog, then it is when they start earning from it. Not a lot of effort but because you enjoying sharing things on your blog, there is a possibility of earning.

If it is your passion and it makes you happy while doing it, it feels effortless. And if your work are paid, it will make you feel happier. But if you are just forcing yourself as a writer, it will be very stressful. I know a person who is not good at speaking or dealing with people, he thinks that he can be good at writing. He gave his effort and time in writing and ending up not profiting from it. I felt sad for that person. Finding your niche is really important.

The problem with blogging is that you don't earn right away. It takes a long time to set it up for people to start coming in and it takes even longer to set up a way to monetize it.

Blogging is a perfect example of writing without expecting to earn right away but still people do it. So as an answer to the topic, there are really people who are willing to invest time and effort without really expecting to earn right away. They just do writing as a hobby and if they earn then that is already a plus.

Transcription jobs are just not that worth it in my opinion. For the time you take to get the job done, though you're getting paid for it, it's just not enough. Yes, for extra income it might come in handy, but remember. There are only 24 hours in a day, and you're spending 1-2 hours transcripting a 6 min audio file for $2. Think about that. It's better if you're just spending 30 mins a day and just earning $0.5. You have other activities in life to attend to.

I do not have experience in transcribing. I did not know that this is the rate for some transcribing jobs. I agree that you have only 24 hours a day and to earn less than what you deserve for your time and effort can be considered waste. I am sure there are other freelancing jobs that offers good price for your efforts and time. As a freelancer it is our responsibility and prerogative how we should price our time and effort. It should also be fair for both sides.

Sometimes, we don't get to dictate that aspect in the jobs. Job employers often abuse the fact that freelancers are often without experience and they tend to lower their rates because of this. Regardless of how skilled you are, they only look at the time you have spent doing jobs on their site.

I agree and I do prefer short term and flexible online work like forum posting over transcription work which is more intensive and demanding in terms of time and effort. However, I am not comparing transcription work to forum posting jobs (it offers a fixed rate) but to writing sites that don't pay writers upfront for their work. These sites may require articles with 500 to 1,000 words (and a fair amount of research) but fees for the writer's effort is dependent on the number of views or members' comments/likes on the article. It's probably great if you have an army of followers in social media and if you have all the time to promote your article.

A significant number of the general population who possess these locales are simply in the wake of getting content which they don't need to pay for. Beyond any doubt the guarantee of income being shared may tempt various journalists however in the event that I can profit on that website and need to advance the substance I write keeping in mind the end goal to get more perspectives I'd lean toward rather to distribute what I would compose for that webpage on my blog and most likely profit.

Sites that pay per view are hard to break into, but I think that so long as you can master these sites, you will make good money. I think because you know that you have to make money you will spend time researching and churning out quality content.

In a word, yes. I just love to write and will write anywhere. However, a piece of work for a set fee is always going to take priority as most of the "write and get paid" sites do not pay very much at all. There was once this site where you could write and get paid and if you were in the right country, they paid well, but then it was discovered they were ripping a lot of the other people not in those countries off. That happens a lot and the value of that kind of site is more to build confidence in writing than to earn money.

Writing in those pay per view sites can be a good training ground especially for those who are just starting out as writers. They can use these kind of sites to test and develop their writing skills specially if english is not their native language. Well experienced and established writers however should avoid these kind of sites for there may be other avenues in the online world that they can showcase their creativity and get a much bigger monetary compensation.

Good for you buddy, and you're right. One thing I like about forum posting is that aside from the fact that you get to share your views, you also get to learn a thing or two yourself all at the same time. Let's all improve and do better articles in the future. All the best!

Yes, I would like to spend my time earning through sites that pay me by my reactions and views. I mean, I am really not in the state of idleness.

As long as you are committed and patient, you will earn something that is also equivalent to your effort. You just need to find the right site.

It really depends if the pay is worth it. Like transcription jobs for example, you only get $1-2 per an hour's work. That's not gonna work for me.

This question is a no-brainer for me, simply because I have loved writing since I was in middle school way back in the 80's. I feel that if your confident about what you write for the public, then you should welcome critics. Although I love to write, i sometimes get pressed with the fact of having to start my assignment when I'm up against a mental block. The idea of getting paid for your input and doing something you love, is an added bonus on top of the fact that you can display your work. People in this world are going to scrutinize you for something anyway because of the fact that "you cant please everyone", so you might as well make some cheddar off of your following critics.......................Nuffsaid.

In as much as it's very satisfying to work as a freelancer and earn money online from one's writing on both forums and blogs, there are some people who just write for fun and not for the money.

There is nothing wrong with writing in such site that pays the content publishers for reactions and likes but I must confess that I have never seen such site before and it really doesn't look feasible at all.

How will just reactions get one's site to rank higher in Google? How will the site owner earn money from that alone? Also, I think that the reactions would be open to manipulation by the site members.

My experience with these type of sites per view or comment dates quite some years behind. I have earned some good money including more than $80 a day and even some little cash as $0.5 a day. Some sites have gone under while others stop paying.

Sometimes I find it hard to get well paying tasks. I am now trying to embark in upwork. Yet it seems am hooked to pay per vote or comment

As for me, sure. I consider writing as a hobby and getting paid on top of it would be nice. Though if I have to do the marketing myself to gain views and reactions, never mind. But it got me interested though, do you mind sharing the links of those sites so that I can do proper research about it? Thanks!

If writing is something that you love to do the joining writing sites is perfect! You get to do the thing that you love and earn at the same time. What you earn will just serve as a bonus. Since writing is your passion, you can create great articles that may attract readers.

I don't mind sinking some of my time writing for sources that pay over time as opposed to up front. I work full time, and my main source of freelance income comes from videography and photography, which pays me much, much more than online writing ever will for me.

For this reason, I've been writing occasionally for Hubpages, and I'm seeing somewhat modest return on some of my articles. So as I develop my writing niche there and start building traffic, I hope to make it a pretty steady source of passive income eventually. As someone who dabbles in stock photography as well (which works on a similar scale to the writing at Hubpages), I approach with the same mentality that if I can just build a good body of work over time, it'll become a source of income I don't even have to really think about.

Of course i will give time and spend more effort on that. Always keep in mind that if you are being paid because of your skill there is no reason not to do it. And it will make you practice the art you choose.

Well, you are right. I will partially agree with your point that some sites are never very open about there payment rules and conditions. Some sites who are like social sites where one has to keep on postings and you are paid when someone views your post and likes it, but such sites pay very less and if you want to earn serious money then you obviously won't like these sites. there are some sites however who do pay well in this category also. in fact, if you are talented enough and have some patience, you may be able to earn a decent amount of money on such sites. so I would say that if your only intention is to earn money then it's better to concentrate on sites which have a clear-cut policy about payment and pay as soon as your work is done and approved.

I am a man who is driven first and foremost by what I have a passion for before remuneration. My answer to the question is in the affirmative so long as my views and reactions to the topic to the topic at hand will be meaningful. After this then I can spend time and effort to earn what is in it.

If given a chance to write for paid review, why not. I will still write real reviews even it is a paid reviews. By giving reviews you will give others a knowledge about the sites and at the same time gives me an opportunity to earn.

Me too, but if I understand the question correctly, writing sites which depends on views and comments? Hmm nope. Because that would depend on the sites traffic and if it's an unknown site then that means I need to market, advertise, create funnels so that there would be a lot of traffic and that's a whole lot of work.

Well in my opinion, If you have the superb writing skills and the time leisure, then you should definitely go for sites the gives specific monetary values for your work. Because you have the skills then you should put it to good use. But for those who doesn't really excel in the field or the leisure of time, then sites that gives you points without specific value is still a good choice. Just be sure that you don't invest more than what you are getting.

I always find that there is someone out there who are willing to pay for our opinions about something. But I am more towards writing for fun rather than being paid for writing some reviews of a product. I believe writing allows one to sharpen their communication skills and it is a mental exercise for me. So most of the time I write for free like in the local newspapers and magazines. I will be very satisfied when someone gave a good comment and see my works published in the dailies.

I agree @ck003. However these days writing is a full-blown career for some people. Gone are the days where people write for their passion. The arts are truly dead. In my opinion it's like the rise of pop music which does not require talent. Examples of artists like Lady Gaga and Tailor Swift who are selling albums to the tune of millions but who can't truly sing. Everything is now commercialized and talent and passion is a dream.

Actually, that's what I'm doing at the moment. So yes I am willing, I'm one of those persons who desperately need money. And writing in sites that pays for view is not really a heavy thing for me to do, I spend my spare time doing that. And for those people like me, there's nothing to be ashamed of. We are doing a legal part time job, so be proud of it.

Sure, that is a great idea, but i honestly don't if the money is good. I have a day job and I just do not know if I would have the time to do so, if I ever get fired I will try it!

My time is precious for I just dived it into many. As a mother and a housewife, I have to do multi-tasking job inside the house. Time to clean the house, to cook, to help them answer their assignments and be a playmate for them. But I need to consider the daily needs of my family and need to help my husband financially by getting paid the monthly bills. So I have to invest my some time to earn money.
