Whether you want to make some extra money or turn writing into a full-time career, freelance sites can help you find the work you’re looking for. Being a freelancer is an excellent way to turn your talent or hobby into money. You have the freedom to apply for only the projects that you like or you’re good at.
Job boards are a great place to find and apply for opportunities. Marketplaces also feature built-in payment management systems so you never worry about invoicing or missing a payment. These freelancing websites are also great resources for people who are looking to hire freelancers to get work done.

If you are looking for writing websites so you can start earning money online immediately, then there are many writing websites that will pay you upfront for writing your own content for others. These sites are called upfront pay writing sites. These sites are mainly writing job sites and content publishing sites.

How Do I Get Paid?

You can request payout via PayPal, Bank transfer or a prepaid debit card, depending on the payment options of each site. You may need to request payout or the sites may send out payment automatically.

Writing for freelance websites can provide you with extra income fast when you need money for paying bills. It can be a source of income too if you put in enough time and effort. You can earn money faster with these sites, working from home writing about things you love or you are knowledgeable about.

FYI: Your hard work will pay off though as you begin to work with clients and build a reputation as an expert writer on the site. The way you’re going to land a gig with one of these sites that pay $100-plus, is by writing a solid query letter, pitching a well-thought out blog post, or sending a customized LOI (letter of introduction).
