* 2020 Update: Revive Social is not accepting pitches until further notice, so you’ve got an even easier challenge: just post the one outlet below.
Stop procrastinating: pitch and get paid to write about marketing
Getting overwhelmed by the lists of hundreds of places that pay for writing? Keep it simple this week so you get some pitches out. If you write about marketing, here’s your challenge for this week: pitch the two outlets below, both of which would look insanely good on your portfolio. They happen to pay, too.
Please note that all payments listed are in US Dollars unless otherwise indicated.
Get Paid to Write About Marketing: Copy Hackers
Copy Hackers is a popular website for copywriters and other online marketers. It has a tonne of content that teaches people how to write great copy that converts. Copy Hackers has three major verticals: copywriting, growth, and freelancing. They look for articles of 2,000 words or more relating to copywriting, marketing, and business promotion. They pay $325 for 2,000+ words. Be sure to read their very helpful and detailed writer’s guidelines, where you’ll find suggested topics and details on how to write articles for the site.
Get Paid to Write about Marketing: Revive Social Blog
2020 Update: The Revive Social Blog is not currently accepting pitches.
Revive Social Blog is the blog for the WordPress plugin creators of Revive Old Post. Their blog has tonnes of advice on social media marketing, and if you want to add to their database of helpful articles, they’ll pay you $100-$200 for 1,500 words or more. However, writer beware: The wording on the website says they’ll pay this much “if the quality is up to par.” So be sure to negotiate terms of payment before starting to write, and get payment upfront if you can (as you always should when dealing with private clients—magazines are a different story). Check out all the writer’s guidelines here.

I would say THANKS for your words and we are taking your steps to follow the success. Your website is very well designed and informative for those who want to learn..Great!
Thanks for stopping by; I wish you all the best with your future endeavours.
I have read countless “how-to” books and articles on writing and, in a word, they all stink! The reason is they all seem to have copied and pasted the same phrase: “Find your niche and hone it well and eventually you will be seen as an authority figure!” So, Ms. Mariana, seeing how frustrated I’d become and how much of an outsider I felt, my Muse directed me to your excellent blog in the nick of time! Now, I see it’s not just me, after all! Thanks, Mariana, for being such a God-send to many of us multi talented writers!
Well, this comment just made my day. So glad you’re finding the blog helpful. I really truly believe that writers are creative professionals and as such should not be limited in their creativity. The “niching” advice works well for people who aren’t primarily writers and are trying to sell something else. But if what we’re trying to sell is our creativity, then it only makes sense that we write in as many niches as we feel inspired to do. Best of luck in your writing journey!
