P.S. Would anyone like me to list some more leads publicly?
Snipped. In case no one has posted it - Helium also has a content mill. I can't remember the exact web address and I'm not at home.

I don't use content mills often. I will this week simply to fill in some free time. My favorite is Textbroker. I've NEVER had an issue with pay or my rating being reduced for any reason. I'm sure I have others. Primarily I've set up a ton of email feeds that deliver new things to my inbox. Yesterday I deleted more than I bothered to apply for. It's a nice problem to have, but it gets to be a pain sometimes.

I wouldn't count on finding work at Helium; it's finished.

I don't worry much about the blabbing. The newbies can have Textbroker -- that's what it's for, really, because experienced writers know better. As I've already said, the better places have waiting lists and pesky little grammar tests that help keep them from being overrun.

Don't forget about iWriter and Hirewriters.

As I wrote before - silly and arrogant.

I don't think anyone should be "shamed" or "guilted" into sharing leads. People should share only if they want to.

I also don't understand the sense of entitlement from people who demand that no one share leads on a forum for fear the company will run out of work.

Below are a few more leads I have come across. I rarely list leads publicly because I think people can find jobs on their own. I won't be listing any more. Happy researching!

Some of the places you've listed belong in the "Bad content mills" thread, HWMM, and at least one no longer exists.

Good luck selling your book.

I'd advise any new writers to research some of these places before investing much time -- some are outright scams and others pay at about the same rate as iWriter. Finding places to write for a penny or less per word is easy.

I doubted that ALL the lurkers would apply. I realize that many will apply. But will they get hired? Who knows?

I don't need luck. I won't be affected because I focus on B2B copywriting. I write mostly business articles for Scripted, and my scores are high enough that I get first access to the work. I may write several articles a month at most. So I am really not worried.

Agreed, and yet the tone of this thread says otherwise. People who want to share can share; no one can stop them. Others can only make sure they're aware of what they're really doing.

And yeah, I agree that most of the companies you listed do not belong on the good content mill list, which is the whole point of this thread.

Well, that's nice that you won't be affected. I won't either, yet I have been in the past and was just letting you know that these threads might be great for newbies, but not so much for the writers already working there. But the good news is that I don't think many of the mills you listed are considered great, so this thread serves the same purpose as the stickied threads. Carry on!

She forgot to list that company that sometimes gets talked about here -- I can't remember the name, but it pays something like eighty cents an article. It has a strange name, and they send you work via email.

My advice to newbies would be to read the stickies. That's why they're there.

Thanks for the info, but I did write "happy researching." I also think that "good" and "bad" content mills are relative. Many here love TB, but I never liked it and stopped writing for the mill ages ago.

You don't need luck to sell a book. You need to know how to market products.

Any companies I put in my ebook will be carefully researched. I also plan to give the ebook away for free as part of a larger project I am working on.
