What Their Writers Say: (From Indeed)
I am a Tier 4-writer, but there is usually only Tier 3 stuff available. Occasionally I will luck up and find a higher paying piece. For a few months, there was not anything for me to do. One of the managers retired or something and it seems like someone dropped the ball.
Even though it is a content mill, I like the fact that unless you are just a horrible writer, not much gets rejected, and generally, it is accepted before or on the date that they promise. If they had more work, it would be a decent “play money” gig. I am signed up with a few of these sites, so I can usually find work on one of them.
Right now if I happen to log in when there is decent paying work, I can easily make over $50 in a couple of hours while watching TV. Good for buying gifts for friends and family or a nice lunch out.
Work seems to be placed on the dashboard at odd hours such as late at night.
I do work full-time, but am looking forward to retiring soon so I will have more time to check the site for opportunities. However, if you are looking for a steady income supplement, this is probably not the one for you.
Pros: Flexible work if you can get it.
Cons: Not enough work for writers
The Content Authority is a great place for new copywriters to get some experience while making some great quick small cash. At around a penny a word, you are not going to get rich but you will learn skills that can benefit your future career potential.
Cons: Low Pay
