As promised, I've been working hard to bring you bigger and better markets where you can pitch your freelance writing services. To give you a better idea of what you'll find in the writer's market directory (which has new markets added every week), here are some of the latest additions.
5 Markets that Pay Freelance Bloggers $100+ per Post
These five blogging markets all pay up to $100 per post, and sometimes more.
This website publishes Photoshop tutorials. You can query them by sending a picture of your Photoshop project's end result before actually writing the tutorial. They pay $150-300 per published tutorial. They also accept shorter quick-tips, which are paid at a rate of $50 per post.
3. Viator Travel Blog
Viator accepts both travel-related features and shorter "Things to Do" posts for its travel blog. Features should be 1000-2000 words long, and they earn $100-150 per post. The shorter segments come in at 300-500 words and are paid at a rate of $40-45 per post.
4. Treehouse Blog
The Treehouse Blog covers design, development and mobile development. They accept tips, tricks, and trend-focused submissions, and they pay $100-200 per published article.
The Copy Hackers blog explores CRO, design, and copywriting. They pay $150 per post from contributors coming from a background working with startups or in startup-support.
There are even more new markets in the writer's market directory, with ten markets added in just the last few days. Check it out and find more markets open to freelance submissions.
Would you like to see markets in a category not listed there? Contact me or comment on this post with suggestions. I'll be adding new markets on a regular basis, often on a themed basis (such as several new short fiction markets or parenting markets being published at the same time).
Do you run a blog or another publication that is currently and regularly open to freelance submissions? Do you have a favorite market that you'd like to share, and it publishes its writers' guidelines and payment terms (these must be public for inclusion in my database)? If so, submit your market suggestions today and I'll consider adding them.
