Which freelance writing site is best? Do you prefer Helium over Associated Content? Or is Triond your favourite? One of the ways I compare freelance writing sites is by how much money they pay.
Based on this fact I investigate and calculate my earnings at Helium, Associated Content and Triond. Associated Content and Triond have paid me between $10-$14 in 2009. Not very much at all. I did abandon my freelance writing at both these sites at a stage but I do have over 30 articles on each so would expect greater earnings. Now to Helium, where I had just over 100 articles in 2009. My Helium earnings were much greater than both AC and Triond combined last year as in 2009 I earned around $291. For some freelance writers this is buttons but since I abandoned Helium for a short time I am pleased.
My next step is to earn a four figure income in one year for my freelance writing at Helium. I will still continue with Triond simply because they now offer to pay through adsense on top of page view payments and referral income and occasionally I do get google adsense earnings from Triond.
Aims for this year are to get $50 in one months ad revenue from Helium as well as at least $1000 from upfronts, writing contests, marketplace and stock content. At the beginning of last year I was getting less than $8 dollars a month and now as of today I averaged 85 cents. My Helium balance for this month so far is $11.93, that is made up of $3 from December upfronts, and the other $8.93 is ad revenue.
