Content Divas

Content Divas seems to hire writers fairly regularly.  To be considered, email the company at employment@contentdivas.com.

What will they require from you?  Two writings samples as follows:

  • One 500-word article and one 300-word blog post.
  • You don’t get paid for either.
  • They don’t use the samples, they are yours to keep.
  • Their reasoning is that they need you to write the samples to make sure that you are the author.

There are very few companies that don’t require a sample article; however, most pay you for it.

They pay $18 per 1000-word article; however, that “1000-word article” may be divided into 500-word articles and/or 250-word blog posts.  I’ve often seen 300-word blog post assignments mixed with 500-word articles, too.

So, in reality, you only make $9 per article or around $4.50 per blog post.  After completing several “packages” or “half-packages,” you may be qualified for higher paying writing jobs at Content Divas.  If I understand the package assignments correctly, a package involves 30,000 words or more, and a half-package has 15,000 words that span 30 business days and 15 business days, respectively.

If writing a 30,000-word article, you make $540, and for 15,000 words you make $270.  I saw a post by a Content Divas editor recently that mentioned she could sometimes complete four articles in an hour, and she made significant income from it.  I could see that if you are editing documents; however, I have difficulty imagining four 500-word documents written from scratch in one hour … even if no research is involved.  And, $540 isn’t significant unless you’re completing several assignments simultaneously.

When an assignment begins, the writer is required to complete and submit into the system 1000 words per day of the assignment — Monday through Friday.  A Content Divas editor told me that press releases pay $50 each, but you must be referred by one of their editors to be “promoted.”  Other writing assignments include ebooks and reports.

Shelby Larson, the owner of the company, said that she has been around for several years writing web material.  She’s created quite a machine with Content Divas.

  1. Hi Sherry,

    Can you tell if this site accepts applications from international writers?

    Also, when I do send them an employment application, do I send them the sample rightaway, or I have to do it later, after they tell me a topic or two?

    I just read your review of the Content Authority, and for information on that site, the review and the comments on it just cannot beat. I hope you get enough clients through this blog to justify that you keep writing this blog!

    best,

    • Hello, Vishal. Content Divas did not used to hire international writers; however, they may do it now. I suggest that you submit an email inquiry to the company (employment@contentdivas.com), provide a brief explanation as to your experience and request (without any samples) and see what they say. It never can hurt to ask.

      You know, wiseGEEK.com hires international writers and pays $10 to $14 for a 400- to 500-word article. That’s more than Content Divas pays. You might want to check them out. I’ve got details in a post about the company on my blog here. Scroll down and follow the directions for applying as an international writer. I visited your blog. Your writing skills are quite exceptional. I believe you should have no problem being accepted by wiseGEEK.

      Thank you so much for the comment about my blog — I’m very glad you enjoy it!

  2. Hi, Sherry,
    We work as a group and are currently writing for Iwriter and Textbroker. The main issue is that we have made several application to write for thecontentauthority.com but each time we get a regret don’t know what it is that we are doing wrong and kindly advice if their are any new writing accounts.

    • I don’t know the exact reason TCA is not accepting your application; however, I do know that they require very good English in the writing applications. If you write in the same manner on your application as you did in the comment, this may be a problem. You’ve made a great start in learning English. Now, you need to refine it quite a bit to apply for The Content Authority. I believe you can even take online English courses that will help with your writing abilities. I would do a search on the Internet for learn to write English better or some variation of that and see what’s available. Good luck.
