Another Online Opportunity for Freelance Writers

| May 22, 2008 | 3 Comments

I found, quite by accident, a new on line money making opportunity for freelance writers and filmmakers. It’s called Demand Studios.

Demand Studios is a company that provides content, both in written and video format for several websites. Some of their clients include eHow, Expert Village, Live Strong and a host of others. They hire writers and filmmakers on an independent contractor bases to provide content for their clients.

What grabbed my attention is that according to Demand Studios, they pay via PayPal on a weekly basis (Fridays) and the current pay rate for the eHow project is $15 per approved submission. I couldn’t believe it! I was writing articles for the eHow project as a freelance writer through another organization (who shall remain nameless), for $10 per submission.

I immediately signed up to write for Demand Studios. The sign up process is easy. You must upload your resume and provide a few writing samples. The writing samples can be uploaded or a link to current content on the internet.

You provide them with the topics that you’re interested in and they review your application. The whole process took less than 24 hours. Upon being accepted, I logged in and claimed 10 titles to write.

Once I get a better feel for the inner workings of Demand Studios, I’ll write a more detailed review of my findings. In the meanwhile, it looks like a promising on line money-making opportunity.

    Hi Felicia, love you blog…been reading the TB section for a long time and your blog is responsible for my signing on with TB as a writer. I would like to consider applying for Demand Studios. I have written articles online for several years part time as I have an offline biz. Now that I am semi-retired I want to write more fully.

    Associated Content and Textbroker are the only paid sites I have written for, but do have some references from a few private clients that I have written for. I have taken a correspondence course in writing and some online free courses. I have two newspaper print articles as well.

    Compililing my limited writing experience and education in a resume that will make a good presentation is confusing. Can you suggest someone who does resume writing for writers that is reasonable (not cheap) who will do an acceptable job so that I might apply to Demand Studios with a good first impression.

    Thanks for any help you can give

      Hi Doran,

      Sorry, I can’t recommend anyone to put a writing resume together for you. I found a website quite some time ago that provided information on how to put together a writing resume. I did a Google search for “freelance writer resume format” and found several sites. I basically followed the format outlined here: http://www.writing-world.com/rights/resume.shtml. That format is the same one I use today.
