Content Gather takes a smaller cut (20% compared to 35%) and gives an upfront payment(*) for marketplace articles (so you get 10% when you upload a piece and the rest when it sells). I get similar levels of sales on both sites.

(*) Some caveats: When you're new, you aren't allowed to charge the highest rates until your writer rating goes up, and there's a limit on how many articles you can have available for sale and still get upfront payments for adding new ones.

Where have you had the most success placing ads?

Thanks for the reply! I am definitely going to forego Constant Content for awhile and try out Content Gather!

Have I said this before? AVOID AVOID AVOID ONESPACE, which I hate with the passion of 10 million suns. They are a complete ripoff, totally unprofessional, don't know what they're doing, etc. etc.

I'd go to I-Writer before OneSpace, and that's saying something!

Right now, I'm writing for Constant Content. I like being able to search trends, pick out something interesting, write the article, and let people buy it. It's funny, since I've been off the site for a few years, but when I logged on it showed that two people had purchased my articles just a few months ago! What a nice surprise
Just a heads up that Upwork has started turning down new freelancers in the writing and translation category. They are also getting rid of inactive freelancers. I guess they feel their market is saturated and they want to ensure their active freelancers have a fair chance at getting jobs, which I can appreciate as an Upwork provider. I don't know how long it will be before they open it up again, but it never hurts to keep trying because you can get great work off the platform.

I have written a blog post about finding freelance work that might help. Check the link in my signature to get to the blog.

Good luck!

Karen

Any recommendations?
You can check www.contentgather.com as you can submit your own articles in the marketplace as well as do custom jobs. I was writing for www.meritcrowd.com. Many tasks were available in August. But I could not find any tasks after that.
