Beware the Writing Jobs Online Scam

Writing Jobs Online ScamIf you’re new to freelance writing, you might be tempted to go online searching for writing jobs, or maybe you’ll search Craig’s List. Either way, you’ll soon find an endless supply of tempting offers, but you can bet, most of them, if not all, are scams.

How to Earn a Darn Good Living as a Writer…

Keep in mind, the more desperate you are to earn money as a writer, the more vulnerable you will be to a writing job online scam. If you’re under financial pressure, you are even more at risk. Building a freelance business takes time and requires establishing relationships.

Remember, you’re a writer.

You create value out of thin air! That’s a superpower.

Just because you love to write doesn’t mean it’s not valuable. Writing is indeed valuable and some people who can’t write try to scam writers out of their work. Don’t let that happen to you.

I’ll explain how some scams operate below so you won’t fall for them. Then, at the bottom of this article, I’ll explain a legitimate way to earn money online as a writer. The one I recommend and the one I spend most of my time on.

But first, a couple of rules.

If you follow these two simple rules you’ll avoid most of the online freelance writing job scams.

Rule #1: Never pay anyone so you can write for them.

Rule #2: Never write for free. (There are exceptions to this rule, see explanation below)

A little more about Rule #1.

Woman in home office with computer smilingA common writing job scam is to pay for job leads. This is usually advertised as a membership site, club or a subscription service. You’re expected to pay something to join and in exchange, you will have access to freelance writing job leads.

Here’s what really happens. Usually, the scammers will tempt you will an offer to join for just a few dollars and promise all sorts of riches if you join. They might even say you can join for a dollar, a single buck. If you sign up for a dollar, they’ll have your credit card information and in a week or two, maybe a month, they’ll hit you with a recurring monthly fee of $50, $100 or more.

And, they may continue charging your credit card for a long time. Don’t expect to get any of this money back either. The best you’ll be able to do is cancel your membership.

Real writing jobs don’t expect you to pay. Real writing jobs respect the value you create as a writer.

And More about Rule #2.

Another common writing job scam is to ask for a “writing sample.” The scammer will ask you to write something original on a topic they give you. They’ll say they need a sample in order to determine your writing skill level or something to that effect. Sometimes they’ll try to pressure you with a fast-approaching deadline.

When a scammer asks you to write on a specific topic for free, it’s because they a client who will pay the scammer for your work. However, you’ll never get paid.

A real, honest-to-goodness legitimate business will never ask you to write for free. This is called writing on spec or speculation. When a real business asks you to write anything, they will pay you for it.

Writers across the internet are great at writing about scams they’ve found. With just a little research you can find what others have experienced with different businesses and possible scammers.

The only exception I can think of to the “Never write for free” rule is when you are in the process of establishing your business. Then, it can be helpful to approach potential clients with the offer to write a short project for free, but only once. If they are happy with the result, ask them for a testimonial you can post on your website. Testimonials are valuable and will make it easier to get paying clients. Half a dozen testimonials are plenty. From there on out, you should get paid.

Beware of Craig’s List.

Scams are common on Craig’s List. It can be tedious to sort the good from the bad, but sometimes the headline of an ad will give it away. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Ignore ads that sound spammy and hyped or that do not offer specific details about the writing assignment.

Poor spelling and grammar in an ad is a dead giveaway that it’s a scam. Don’t waste your time. Dangling unreasonably high pay is a red flag. Don’t fall for that either.

If the job ad lists a company name, look it up online. A legitimate company will have a professional looking website with an abundance of information. Real companies foster a web presence. You might also search the Better Business Bureau for information about the prospective company to see if there are any complaints. You should also be able to talk to someone on the phone about the potential writing job.

Never answer an ad that requires detailed personal information. They do not need to know anything about your other than your name and a way to contact you. Never email a full resume until you have verified it is a legitimate company with a legitimate writing assignment.

The Problem with advertised Writing Gigs.

There may be some real freelance writing jobs advertised on the Internet and in Craig’s List, but the fact they are advertised reveals the client is looking for a low bidder. In other words they are looking for a good deal.

As a freelancer, you don’t want to be in the situation where you have to lower your rates just to get a writing gig. That’s a sure way to burn out and go broke. It’s better to compete on quality than to compete on price. Give them above average work and you can charge an above average rate.

A Better Way to Build Your Freelance Writing Business.

Beautiful smiling woman with laptopRather than searching online for writing gigs, it is much more productive and profitable to cultivate relationships with prospective clients. When you have a relationship with clients and prospective clients, you have a source of never ending gigs and your work gets much easier. Relationships also protect you. You won’t get scammed from someone you know.

So, instead of an one-off writing assignment you get through an ad, cultivate relationships. I show you how.

You’ll need a website for this to work. You can get a free website here, plus the support to quickly and easily build it. On your website, post a page about yourself and a sample page displaying examples of your writing.

You’ll save yourself a lot of heartache and frustration if you focus on a niche or two instead of being a generalist. And, you’ll make more money too. But when you’re starting out, you may want to take on any writing job you can find and let your specialty evolve.

Tell Your Friends.

Tell your friends and anyone you meet you are a professional copywriter. A professional is someone who gets the job done on time.

Once the word gets out that you’re a copywriter, you’ll be surprised who will need your services. This might be all you need to do. It’s easier to start in your local area, visiting small businesses. Most people won’t need your services right away. That’s alright. Remember, you’re building relationships. Make a pleasant, professional impression and you will soon have business.

A Recommended Alternative.

If you’re going to take the time to build a freelance writing business, why not build one that has less hassles, offers more freedom and pays more money. I’m talking about blogging for money.

A properly trained blogger can earn unlimited income and enjoy unparalleled freedom. As a blogger, you write about topics you enjoy. There are no deadlines and no clients to chase after.

How to Earn a Darn Good Living as a Writer…

Here’s how it works.

Superhero girl in a redFor example this website is my blog. When someone searches the internet for topics I write about, they find my site. Sometimes the information I’ve written contains a link to a product sold online. When someone buys through my link, I make some money. It’s simple affiliate marketing blended with solid writing.

Online shoppers need information to feel confident before buying. As a writer, you have a tremendous advantage as a blogger. You can give these shoppers the information they’re searching for and get paid very well for your efforts.

There are over 2 Billion people with high speed connections to the internet. The number of people using the Internet is increasing exponentially. At any given moment, millions are searching the internet for information. Information you, as a website owner and blogger, can give them. In the process you make money. In fact, you can make a lot of money.

There are different ways to earn money from a website too. If you want, I’ll teach you how. I learned and continue to learn at Wealthy Affiliate and that’s my recommendation for you. Wealthy Affiliate is really an online community built around the most ethical online marketing training in the world.

  1. What a great resource your site is for aspiring writers – or even veterans, such as myself. I am bookmarking you. There is much for me to gain here. “Beware the Writing Jobs Online Scam” needed to be written – needed to shared. It is great that you also offer positive options (e. g., building your own website).

    Kudos to you. Now I’m gonna have to look up your book on Amazon!

    • Hi Loretta!
      Thanks for stopping by and thanks for looking me up on Amazon. I hope my site will continue to be a resource for anyone who wants to use their writing superpower for good as I add more content. All the best…Gary

  2. Hi Gary! As an aspiring writer I’m quite appreciative of the information on your website. You are straight forward in your recommendations and candid in your material. I see much potential and have bookmarked your site for future reference. Thank you for your great advice! I just may reach out with questions someday!

    Kim

  3. I have been applying to a truckload of those stupid freelance writing sites before finding you. Your logic is undeniable; I don’t know why I’d bother doing it the other way. So thank you so much for helping out fellow writers! You are fantastic.

    • Hi, Alli!

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your experience. I’m so glad you found my article “Beware the Writing Jobs Online Scam” and found it helpful.

      You can definitely make money online as a writer, but so-called writing jobs aren’t the way to do it. I recommend you either start your own freelance business and find your own clients or build a website and write for yourself. This article lists some books that will help you start your own freelance writing business. And this article discusses how to make money writing for your own website.

      All the best,
      Gary

  4. I am passionate about writing and have been since a very young age. Although I never pursued any formal training, I always imagined writing to offer an income and, with it, a sense of freedom I may not be able to obtain elsewhere. I have stumbled upon WA repeatedly for the last 2 years or so and am now wondering if it is truly free and as easy as the site claims. Perhaps I just need a pep talk (lol), but are there any associated fees later? Is training and belonging to the online community free? Would I be required to become affiliated with specific websites? Please do share your wisdom with me. I am searching high and low for at home income opportunities and do not want to fall for any more scams.

    • Hi, Leah!

      Thank you for stopping by and asking such pointed questions. I share your love of writing and I know from experience that when your writing efforts are focused you can earn a very comfortable living with it. Fortunately, earning a living as a writer does not require a formal education, but some training and guidance will help you succeed faster and with fewer headaches. That’s where I can help.

      To answer your questions, Wealthy Affiliate has two membership levels. One is free and the other costs $49 a month. The membership is truly free. You don’t even have to have a credit card and there is absolutely no risk. Wealthy Affiliate is founded on integrity and proven business principles. The free membership is your chance to explore Wealthy Affiliate from the inside.

      The free membership is more accurately called a “Free Starter Membership.” It’s designed to offer you a free look at the Wealthy Affiliate community, training and support. The free membership comes with two free websites and, for the first 7 days of your membership, you will have most of the privileges of the paid membership. It is possible to make money with the free membership, but if you are serious about succeeding online you will benefit greatly from the paid membership.

      The only fee you will ever have with Wealthy Affiliate is the monthly membership fee of $49 if you decide to upgrade to the paid membership. If you paid annually, the cost drops to about $29 a month. Membership includes all the training and support you will need to succeed online.

      As your online business grows, you may want to purchase software and online tools from other sources that will increase your efficiency, but the membership fee is all you’ll ever pay Wealthy Affiliate.

      Regarding how easy it is to succeed online. “Easy” is a subjective term that is often abused. Leah, succeeding online does require sustained effort. In my experience, building a successful online business is far easier than working at a dead-end job. The hardest part is the head-game when I don’t see the results I hoped for.

      Succeeding online is actually a process of completing one small task after another and continuing to work towards your goal even when you aren’t getting results. It takes time to add content to a website and for the search engines to trust your website and for people to find it too. Although some people have made money their first month with Wealthy Affiliate, it usually takes longer.

      Building a website is VERY EASY. Once you’re inside Wealthy Affiliate, you can build a website in about a minute with a few clicks of a mouse. Adding content to your website will take time. This is where non-writers struggle and where you, as a writer, will have a tremendous advantage.

      I hope I’ve answered your questions. If not, please try me again.

    Hi Gary,
    I was casually scrolling through Instagram when I saw an ad for MasterWritingJobs. I love writing and editing, and have even done some curriculum writing, but never been considered a “professional writer”. I have started many books, written proposals for literary agents, and, like most writer wanna-be’s, felt sorry for myself upon numerous rejections.
    When I stumbled upon the ad for writing jobs and the accompanying video, I a sense of hope suddenly came over me! Until….I decided to goggle reviews and landed on yours. I am assuming that this particular group would be considered a “writing scam”. You pay to have access to writing jobs. Beyond that, Im not sure how you can assure you will get said jobs and then get paid. I guess I say all that to say this, do you have any current clients of Wealthy Affliate that would be willing to talk about their experiences getting into the blogging for money arena? That piques my interest but also makes me a little nervous. I really need a job I can set my own hours and I love writing! Can the two really converge?

    Jill

    • Hi, Jill

      I would advise that you not get involved with MasterWritingJobs. They will continually milk you for money and if you do manage to get a writing job it won’t pay much. These kinds of scams sell you the dream of living a writer’s life and once they set the hook, they use it to take your money.

      Wealthy Affiliate teaches how to build an online business based on any interest or passion you might have. As a writer, you have a tremendous advantage. The best way to earn money as a writer I have found is to write for your own blog.

      It does take time to get established. It could take months before you are making money with your own blog, but in time, you will earn much more that way. Wealthy Affiliate offers a free starter membership so you can join without risking anything and check it out. If you join through this link, I’ll be able to communicate with you directly.

      Once you join WA at the free level, you will have access to the full community and can broad cast your questions about blogging to the entire group. I’m sure you’ll get all the answers you need. The people inside Wealthy Affiliate are very helpful.

      It is essential that you accept how valuable you are as a writer. Because you love it and because it may come easy for you, you might discount it. Please do not do that. Writing truly is a superpower. Most internet marketers cannot write. There is an insatiable need for good writers online.

      I’m here for you,
      Gary

  6. Awesome article. Very informative for us beginners.

  7. I joined WealthyAffiliates and paid for a premium membership for one year. It was the best online investment I have made. I learned more in that year than in the previous 5 years. I am no longer a member because I felt I outgrew the benefit of the site. But I do strongly recommend WA to any wannabe internet marketer as a place to learn pretty much everything you will need to know in order to have a chance at success. I would give WA at least a score of 8/10.

    • Hi, David!

      Thanks for stopping by. Wealthy Affiliate is the only place I would recommend for someone searching for a legitimate place to learn how to build a thriving online business. I struggled of six years before finding it. I won’t ever leave. The secure hosting and central control of my websites is worth the cost of membership. The continually updated training is a bonus. Also, I love showing people how easy it is to build a thriving online business that will support them for years.

      Thanks for stopping by. I thoroughly enjoyed visiting your website and applaud the work you are doing teaching English.

      All the best,
      Gary

  8. Jeff Marino says:

    Hi Gary,

    I’ve been casting my line around, trying to find the elusive legitimate writing opportunity. I came across a company called American Writers and Artists, Inc., based in Florida. I was wondering if you had any insight on AWAI. They seem legit, but looks can be deceiving. I think I’ll also look into your offer here, as well. Great blog, by the way!

    Jeff

    • Hi, Jeff!

      I’ve taken some of the AWAI training and do NOT recommend it. You will learn copywriting from them, but it will be a very expensive experience. Their courses are really just high-priced eBooks or insanely priced workshops. You can find used copies of the courses online for a fraction of the original cost. Also, AWAI has not kept up with changes on the internet.

      Please do not let the AWAI sales pitch of earning six figures seduce you into taking one of their courses. My biggest criticism of AWAI is how they market their programs with promises of making a lot of money. This tactic is very similar to the “No Money Down Real Estate Courses.” It is possible to earn 6 figures as a copywriter, but it will take several years to get to that point. Also, many writers are not very good at finding clients and that is the backbone of a copywriting business.

      I’ve written an article about AWAI that suggests inexpensive alternative ways to learn copywriting. You can read it here. You may also want to read this article about the AWAI Six-Figure course.

      Thanks for stopping by,
      Gary

  9. I am 81 years old and have been writing since the 1950s, first news scripts for television news-readers and then as a newpaper reporter. My first major ssignment was at the Chicago Tribune. In 1968 I won a Pulitzer for National Reporting while working as Midwestern Bureau Chief for the Christian Science Monitor..

    I am still wriing freelance editorials for a daily newspaper in Florida. In 2016 I pocketed just $7,000. That’s not enough to put honey on my bisquits. So I am searching for a way to make more money. I found your blog interesting and helpful. I too was doing a little blogging in 2015. Then a logging truck with a distracted driver (focused on his cell phone) wiped out my Class C motorhome. I wasn’t hurt. But that’s when I returned to the newspaper editorial page. My living room tends to be safer as long as I keep my wife happy. I’ve given the paper adequate notice and will be leaving soon.

    Developing one blog: http://www.ThePeopleOfAmerica.com has been enjoyable. Another, http://www.1000small towns.com also fits my personal interests. A third: http://www.ShutDownFishing.com reflects the plight of commercial fishermen. My son is a salmon fisherman in Alaska,. My granddauhter has her own boat and is putting herself through gradute school with her profits.

    I doubt any of my bloggs will make money. They don’t meet people’s needs. I’d appreciate your suggestions. Meanwhile, I will check out Wealthy Afilliaate as you have suggested. That mght put me on a better path.

    • I enjoyed reading your comment and also visiting your three blogs. I’m thankful you were not injured in the accident.

      Reading about your life was humbling. You have done so much. I delivered newspapers and shined shoes in a mill town when I was 8 years old. Until tonight when I read you had carried papers when you were 7, I thought I had been the youngest newsboy in the world.

      Getting back to your blogs and writing. Inside Wealthy Affiliate, there are several members who are travelers and blog about their adventures. Some live as you do, in an RV and some live on boats. The training will show you how to monetize your blogs and also how to focus your writing so it attracts more visitors from the internet.

      Wealthy Affiliate is like a mix of open university, high-tech support, and warm community. It has become my online home.

      The hardest part of making money on the internet is creating content. As an experienced writer, you have a tremendous advantage because you can create content whenever you like.

      The starter membership with Wealthy Affiliate is truly free. You don’t need a credit card and nobody will ask you for money. There are no upsells or tricks.

      If you go to JoinWAnow.com you will be under my wing when you join. I would enjoy getting to know you better and helping you. If you join through any of the links on my website, you will also be under my wing.

      Wealthy Affiliate has a paid membership level too. You’ll learn more about that when you join at the free level.

      Mr. James, I was pleased to read about your profound sense of integrity. I’m a bit younger than you, but I remember when people were proud of their values and ashamed if they faltered. Now, it seems those social markers are reversed. Also, journalism as a profession appears to have been compromised. I’m sure it must cause you some concern.

      Thanks again for getting in touch. It’s a pleasure to meet. Let me know if I can help you in any way.

  10. Tina Humphrey says:

    In rule #1, there is a grammatical error: “they will hit your (you) with a recurring monthly fee.

  11. I have a blog, but I make no money from it. My Website is hosted through Simple Site and they do not allow for click ads. How can I find other ways to make it monetized? I do not have a product to sell, at least not yet. So am having trouble figuring out how to make money, at least enough to pay for the site would be nice.

    • Hi, Treva!

      I visited your blog and noticed you have some game reviews posted. Will Simple Site allow you to put an affiliate link in the text of these posts? Something to encourage your visitor to buy through your link. For example, can you write something like “To purchase the most recent version of this game, click here.” The “click here” would be your affiliate link.

      You can learn more about affiliate links and affiliate programs in our free training. Click Here to join our community. Once inside, we can talk more about ways to earn money with your blog.

      Treva, I’m happy to help you,
      Gary

  12. Thanks, this sounds really interesting! Do you think websites like “RoadMap Writers”, “MovieBytes”, and “Page” are scams, too?
    Thanks for sharing any additional insight.

    • Hi, Shy Will!

      I’m not familiar with RoadMap Writers, MovieBytes or Page, and can’t judge if they are scams or not. My initial impression with RoadMap Writers is that it is not a scam, although it looks expensive. Are you pursuing screenwriting?

      Before looking to any website or program to help your writing, it is essential that you learn all you can from books and write, write, write! Be sure you know story structure and, if you are pursuing screen writing, that you understand that format. Some books I would recommend is “Save the Cat” and “Save the Cat Strikes Back,” both are by Blake Snyder. These two books are easy to read and teach basic story structure as it pertains to film. They are also helpful for understanding story structure for long fiction.

      Getting a little deeper into story structure, it is essential that you understand the more complex structure of story as taught in “The Art of Dramatic Writing,” by Lajos Egri and “The Moral Premise,” by Dr. Stanley Williams. These will give you an excellent foundation. You will also want to read and reference Christopher Riley’s “The Hollywood Standard: The Complete and Authoritative Guide to Script Format & Style.”

      There are many more books I would recommend too, but if you go to Michael Wiese Productions at mwp.com, you will find many books that will help you. They are a bookstore in Hollywood that caters to the film industry. Get to know them. They can also help you find workshops and script editors that can help you succeed as a screenwriter.

      All the best,
      Gary

  13. I find myself in a precarious position at the moment. I’m 38 years old, and have always had a love affair with writing. My personal circle has told me for years that I need to write for a living. For no good reason, I never explored this as a legitimate possibility, because I always opted for a more traditional career path, which unfortunately (and fortunately!) has landed me in the position I am today. The last few years have been difficult as I try to find my way professionally, and since I have been freelance writing with a local newspaper for the last 8 months or so, I have finally found my path in life. I need to write for a living. I am so motivated and in love with the process of putting the proverbial “pen to paper”, and my entire process of perfecting what it is that I am writing, that to make a living any other way, would be wrong. I also found you from the searching I did after viewing the enticing offer at masterwritingjobs.com…..but I am fairly convinced this is a scam. It is unfortunate how many scams there are out there. I need to pursue this, like I need to breathe, and if you truly are legitimate, I would love an opportunity to see if you can help me get there.

    • Hi, Mike!

      I can relate to your situation. In the mid-80s I was struggling with the same dream, although I did not have a circle of supportive friends as you do.

      Incidentally, your intuitive insight into MasterWritingJobs is dead-on accurate. Don’t waste your time there. I suspect that 99% of the online writing opportunities are scams or otherwise not worth your time.

      I started writing professionally in September of 1986. Since then, I’ve written technical pieces, ad copy, corporate video scripts, fiction, newspaper columns, and blogs. By far, the most profitable has been writing for my own blog and that is what I would encourage you to do.

      Thanks to the internet, we are living in the golden age for writers. A writer who also has internet marketing skills is a goldmine. Your earning potential is unlimited, but it does take sustained effort, commitment, and appropriate training.

      My friends and I can teach you internet marketing and blogging skills. These same skills can be used to write for other marketers and for local businesses. Both are quite lucrative once you are established.

      If you want to write books, the internet marketing skills you will learn with us will also help you market the novels and books you write.

      You can join us and start learning for free. You don’t need a credit card and nobody will ask you for money. If you join us through this link, I can help you directly.

      The free membership is your chance to check us out without risking a dime. You will receive basic internet marketing training and a free website. Use this free membership to get to know me better and for me to get to know you better and understand how I can help you.

      There is a paid membership level too but that’s for later. There are no surprises or gimmicks when you join us. I sincerely want to help you grow as a writer and to help you earn a sustainable income as a writer as soon as possible.

      When you join our community, you will get an automatic message from me within the hour.

      Mike, I look forward to helping you grow as a writer.

  14. Hi Gary,
    I guess the only good things about Master Writing Jobs is that in checking it out, it got me to you! I wrote professionally for a number of years before I got into teaching. Now I’m out of the education industry with very little desire to go back, and I’d like to try writing for money again. I really appreciate your advice and will be checking out how to improve my internet marketing skills. I’m 59, laid-off, and having a terrible time finding work, but I’m pretty confident in my ability to string together words. I started a blog a couple of years ago, just for fun because I was bored; but I have no idea how to make money from it, or from any other website I might create. Hopefully I can still learn. Thanks again!
    Laura

    • Hi, Laura!

      You’re a brave woman for going into education. I could never do it.

      It may not seem like it from your perspective, but we are living in the golden age for writers. The internet has given writers an immense opportunity, but it does require learning a few new skills. I have two blogs and, yes, they are fun. I love writing. I particularly love writing things I want to write and not working for a client or a boss. Making money with a blog is fun too, and exciting, but the money doesn’t come right away. You’ll learn all that in Wealthy Affiliate.

      I’m 59 too. If I can make money with a blog, you can. It’s not difficult, it just might seem strange at first. It did for me, but now I have friends all over the world. Another thing about being 59, you have experience and maturity to draw on. That is priceless and will serve you well with your own online business.

      I recommend you try the free membership with Wealthy Affiliate. Join through this link JoinWAnow.com and I’ll be in touch within the hour. I’m happy to help you every step of the way. .

      In Wealthy Affiliate, you’ll learn marketing skills which will help you write for marketers, if you want to do that, or write for you own blog/website which is much more profitable and far less frustrating.

      I’m here for you,
      Gary

  15. Hi Gary,
    I also stumbled across your website while checking out Masterwritingjobs. I actually have a free membership with WA. I do work full time, so I was not going online every day. I did set up my website and was going through the training but became discouraged after the 7 days were up. I had access to other persons’ posts but could not post my own questions anymore. It is my dream to work from home, but was not sure about what my niche would be. I would love to learn the art of writing, and I have been encouraged to start blogging. I waned to see how far the free membership would take me. I will revisit my site and try to make it work this time

    • Hi, Novia!

      Yes, the free membership with Wealthy Affiliate offers many of the premium benefits for the first 7 days only, but you get to keep the free websites. I’m in the process of writing a copywriting course that will help you build on what you have learned so far. The course will be totally free, but it won’t be available until mid April. Check back in Mid to late April. Also, I’ll seen you a notice when the free copywriting course is available. The course will teach you how to write, how to find clients and what to charge.

      Thanks for stopping by,
      Gary
