Writing sites on finance?
« on: May 18, 2015, 10:17:06 PM »
Does anyone know of any sites that pay for writing on finance?

I'm sure a lot of sites out there pay if you write on most things, but I figured that if I was able to specialize I would be able to build a portfolio of work, earn better income because of the specialization and leverage the work in the future. I have a bit of a background in finance so I thought it would be a good area to focus on. I would principally target personal finance or investments.

I don't feel totally confident enough to write for some of the better-known sites like Motley Fool, but if I could target some smaller ones there might be some opportunities.

I don't have in mind any specific name, but I know there are some blogs specialized on finance hiring writers and paying.

I know this because a friend of mine was working for several of these not long ago. Couldn't reach her to ask her about, but doing a blog search for "finance blog write for us" may bring some results to check.

Yes, I agree.You need to do a blog search and pitch them your ideas for articles after you have taken a look at their sites. There must be hundreds and you should be able to find something suitable. You may also want to consider magazines.

Thanks for your suggestion! I didn't even realize this blog function existed! To date my hunt has been more trial and error, and has thrown up areas of finance I don't think I have the required knowledge for. But now I think I can be a bit more focused.

beafreelanceblogger.com offers a free pdf list of blogs that pay over $50 per post.  You could check that for finance related blogs to pitch to. 

Freelancewriting.com has a (free) daily newsletter with paid writing opportunities too.  There is a surprisingly large range of industries covered as well as fiction writing calls for submissions.

@Jinny gave you two fantastic source links there, and I would start with these sites first, and then do a Google search. It is nice that you can specialize in one niche and you will build quite a fantastic portfolio with your finance knowledge.

Thanks for the input. I've bookmarked both of them so that I can return and work on them. It's definitely worth me refining my search through these. I've been too scatter gun about looking for work in the past.

Finance, political and technology websites are some of the better places to write for, because those are popular niches. But you need to know your stuff so that you're a credible writer.

You mention that you want to start off at smaller blogs, but there's your problem right there. Most small blogs don't generate enough traffic and earn enough in ad revenue to hire writers. They're usually a one person operation and are probably earning a couple hundred dollars at best.

Small but more established blogs may be able to hire a couple of writers, but the pay rate will likely be very low. I've actually come across blog owners who want well-researched 1000 - 1500 word articles, and only willing to pay between $ 5 - 10. Now, I'm not going to knock these blog owners for paying so little. It is a free market after all, and writers may choose to write these articles to earn some extra cash.

Larger established blogs are still your best bet. You're likely to work in a more professional environment and get paid a more reasonable rate. It may be harder to get accepted but it's definitely worth your while to make the effort.

I thought you were enquiring on experience with such sites because a casual Google search will reveal such sites as Income Diary that deals with personal finance. Finance is such a wide area and it will all depend on your interests. You should not have problems researching on their legitimacy since niche sites are rarely scammers though at the end of the day, you will never go wrong with due diligence.

I would think maybe you could try submitting some freelance articles thepennyhoarder.com.  For this website, the articles would need to be about ways to save money or live on less money. I think I saw where they sometimes are looking for full time contributors as well.  I havenít written for them yet but I do like the site/blog.

I am always on the lookout for new writing opportunities and one of the good sites for finding one is the site makealivingwriting.com.

Here'a an article where you can find writing sites for finance as well as other subjects/genre:

I'd totally forgotten about this thread - seems like an age ago that I was initially looking into it. Since then, I decided to try my luck with Motley Fool, which is one of the most respected investment sites out there.

I got through to what was effectively the third round of the application process but just fell short at that point - it's a shame because that one pays really well. But since the turn of the year I've had a regular gig for a site based in Singapore, write ad hoc pieces for a guy that connected on PeoplePerHour and (hopefully) have an additional reasonably meaty project to nail down.

It's still a work in progress and nowhere near balanced, but it's on a far better path now. I've generally steered clear of the small blogs that advertise but I make sure my profile remains updated on PeoplePerHour and Upwork in case anyone comes calling.

Well I have heard some very mixed reviews on sites like beafreelancewriter but I guess it would be worth looking into.  It seems like it takes a lot of planning and knowing what you are wanting to write on, though, and that is really not where I am personally, but to each their own of course.  The whole finance aspect of question leads me to think you are going to need to find a more niche site, but that is not to say that they are not out there.  Best of luck to you in your search.

I think the wisebread accepts financial articles if you are accepted after applying.  I am not hundred percent sure though but definitely worth checking out!

I cannot recommend any sites where you can publish articles on finance niche. However, you can create a gig on Fiverr and list your skills, you might find out someone who is interested in hirring a finance writer. You can also join freelancer sites and find jobs that demands knowledge in finance.  Alternatively, you can also contact websites on finance niche and send queries whether they are hiring any finance writer.
