Sign in to Apply...
Do I need experience?
No, you do not need any experience, you will be given plenty of resources to learn any skills you need.
How do I apply?
You should be able to see a 'Sign in to Apply' heading directly above the FAQ, and a Facebook login button. If you cannot see the button, please check your brower and plugins to make sure it is not being blocked.
Once you have applied you will be sent a response within 48 hours.
We reply to everyone. If you haven't received a response, its possible the email has just gone into another folder of your mailbox. Some mail systems flag topics related to job offers as spam and gmail especially puts many job related emails into the Promotions tab.
Why do I need Facebook?
If you don't want to be active on social media, you should reconsider being a freelance writer. To join our program you must have an active Facebook account. After you get started you can create Facebook pages to promote and build your audience under your 'brand' name rather than your personal account.
Can I write anonymously?
You can write under a 'pseudonym' or nickname that is not your real name... but we ask that you make some effort to promote your own work. That means sharing your work on social media etc. You can do this without revealing your personal identity by using Facebook Pages.
Who owns my work?
As a freelancer, you are self employed. We don't have any rights or ownership over anything except the articles we pay you to write. You are free to work for anyone else, and we encourage you to get your work published in as many places as possible. Our training course even helps you to sign up for other writing programs and find more freelance work.
How do I write the articles?
For most jobs you can choose the topic, so you can write about something you know well without having to do any research. This way you can produce 1000 words in less than an hour. Once you submit your article it will be reviewed- but we don't really examine the content / topic too much as the article is credited to you as the author. You are free to express yourself how you please.
What if my article isn't approved?
When you submit your article, it will be reviewed by our team within 48 hours. If there are any problems we give you feedback and you can edit the article again. Our review focuses mostly on 'formatting' to ensure your writing is meeting the technical standards for online publishing. We don't edit the topical content of your articles, we let our readers decide for themselves.
How and when do I get paid?
Payments are sent every Friday at ~6pm Australian Eastern time (UTC+10). All payments are sent via PayPal and you must have a Paypal account to receive your payment.
What if I dont have PayPal?
We are continuously working on improving our writing platform and this includes providing more options for payment. However, PayPal is the only option at this time. It's free and widely available. Try everything possible to get a paypal account, if you can't open one in your country then perhaps you can ask a friend.
