Best High-Paying Freelance Gigs of the Week: October 7, 2019

Best High-Paying Freelance Gigs of the Week: October 7, 2019

Want to make more money as a freelance writer? The only way to do it is to either get more clients or better clients. With that in mind, here’s this week’s best freelance writing opportunities. As always, these gigs pay at least $50 an article, offer a full-time salary, or pay more than $20 an hour. They are also all remote jobs (also known as virtual jobs or work-from-home jobs). This means you can do the work from anywhere you want.

Note: I don’t know anything about these positions other than what I post. I weed out the seedy looking ones, but it is your job to be diligent when applying. Also, please don’t message me with questions about the postings. If a link doesn’t work the posting has probably been taken down because the gig has been filled. If you have a gig for freelance writers that pays at least $50 a peice or over $20 an hour, please contact me and I will include your gig in next week’s post.

Seeking freelance writers with an expertise in sleep science, product reviews, diet, health, consumer finance, and more!

We’re looking for skilled freelance writers to work with us on our myriad of client projects. If you like writing, seeing thousands of people read your writing, and working with a fun team that sends you a steady stream of interesting article topics, then you’ve come to the right place.

We're looking for writers in ANY niche, but we especially need writers who can write about:

• Sleep science and health

• Product reviews, especially mattresses and related product info

• Personal finance

• Retirement planning

• Consumer credit and debt

• Keto, Paleo, and other health trends

If you're a great writer who has expertise in other topic areas, we'd love to talk to you, too!

So if you like writing and hate having to constantly look for new client projects, read on.

Who You Are

• You’re a great writer :)

• You’re confident working independently, and don’t want to or need to be micromanaged.

• You’re punctual—deadlines are not options for you.

• You’re proud of your work. You want to work with us to create articles that will rank #1 on Google and be read for years.

Benefits of Writing with Growth Machine

• A fun team. You’re not a faceless freelancer, you get to join our Slack and see the kinds of results your writing is driving for the sites its being published on.
