Work at Home Ghost Writing For Content Divas

Work at home as a ghost writer for Content Divas.Content Divas is a site that hires freelance writers to create unique content for their clients. This one actually works a bit differently than most of the standard sites do.

They have been around since 2007 and from the digging around I've done, the reviews are a little mixed.

While it's almost always more lucrative to start up your own freelance writing business and find high-paying clients, Content Divas and companies like it can be good for supplemental writing income.

How much does Content Divas pay?

This is actually where it gets confusing. You are given work in packages and the pay rate for these packages can fluctuate. They don't reveal the pay rate on their site, but I did find on another site where someone copy/pasted this info they received from the company:

Articles/Blog posts: 18.00 per 1000 words.

Ebooks/Reports: 20.00 per 400 words.

Press Releases: 50.00 each.

It seems that new writers have to start out doing basic articles/blog posts. If you consistently submit good quality work, they might let you try some of the higher-paying assignments.

The 1,000 word blog posts may actually be divided up into a few different articles. So for example you might end up getting two articles at 500 words or four articles at 250 words, which would be $9 for 500 words and $4.50 for 250 words.

There will also occasionally be assignments that pay a little more if they require more research.

What is the method of payment for Content Divas?

Payments are made with Paypal and the day you get paid will vary depending on a few things. You get a 50 percent deposit on your pay before you submit an assignment on projects that involve seven days worth of submission.

Projects that require less than seven days of submission pay out within a week after you complete them.

What does the application process for Content Divas involve?

This is the part that a lot of people don't like.

To apply, Content Divas asks that you write two articles for them, one longer article around 500 words and one shorter article around 300 words.

They let you know what type of article it should be and also give you some topics to pick from. The content has to be 100 percent original, never before published that you write specifically for them.

They do NOT pay you for these articles, even if you are hired. It used to be that Content Divas also retained the rights to this content, but apparently now that has changed and they no longer claim rights to it.

A lot of people think this is a lot of writing to do for free, assuming there is a chance you might not get hired.

How does writing for Content Divas work?

You are basically ghost writing for Content Divas, so you don't get credit for the work you submit. Their clients get the rights to the content and can publish it as they see fit.

Apparently Content Divas releases work to their pool of writers and you can request the projects you are interested in.

The company makes it clear that this isn't a site where you can just log in and work when it suits you. Their writers have to be fairly committed to submitting work to Content Divas because the work goes out in large packages.

So if you get a package that involves writing 22,000 words (divided up into small articles) over a certain number of days, they want the content to be submitted regularly up until the deadline.

Does Content Divas hire writers outside the United States?

No, they only accept US writers who have English as their first language.

Are you hired as an employee or an independent contractor?

Content Divas hires all writers as independent contractors.

What do people say about Content Divas?

The reviews are a little mixed, honestly.

They are a legitimate company and do pay on time from what I've been reading, but some people don't feel that the pay is worth it.

I guess it would ultimately depend on how fast you write and whether or not you found the topics easy to write about. Also, you'd need to decide if you'd want to commit to writing for their company on as regular a basis as they require.

  1. I have been working for Content Divas since 3/1/10. Over 6 years. I calculate and compile pay for all subcontractors. I have done this job since I was hired.

    The pay has increased over the years, so the information above is inaccurate.

    Content Divas has several tiers and methods of payment:

    Flat Rate – Very straight forward. The flat rate jobs are not all that great and average around the $.02-$.03 range. No rewrites expected.

    Word Count – This varies depending on the client’s choice, and your experience: $.02/wd, $.03/wd, $.04/wd, and $.05/wd. On the lowest tier, you write and you’re done. No rewrites expected. At the $.05 tier, you write a small portion of the job, the client gives feedback, and you might be required to change your style. This tier includes two rounds of client approval. Obviously in between there are two other tiers with varied expectations. They are very clear.

    Hourly – The job I do is hourly. It’s good for working at home, or I would have left years ago. The range for hourly pay is $10.00-$25.00 per hour. I have only seen $25 once. There are several at the $20 per hour level. $15 is common for long term Virtual Assistants that do back office admin work, although they start around $12. Not many make it to $15.

    Hope this helps!

  2. Yes, the pay is low. Even if you can write quickly, a true writer shouldn’t be taking slave wages. But I’m much more bothered by the fact that their website is full of grammatical errors. You would think that two women handling hundreds of clients would know how to use commas correctly. Plus, words are missing in some of their sentences. Read their About Us page and you’ll see what I mean.

  3. I actually applied and stopped short of writing the samples just because I didn’t have time to do them at the moment, especially for no pay and no rights. I wonder if they will give me a second chance, lol!

  4. Im surprised people complain about the rates. Maybe they have really high standards? Or maybe it is the large amount of work and deadlines. I guess some things are meant for only the right people. Glad you shared!

    • I know! The rates, for me would be totally acceptable πŸ™‚ But I saw that over and over when I did my research on them, how people were insulted to be working for what they saw to be such low pay. So I don’t know …

      I am honestly thinking about applying there myself.

  5. This is a great post and I learned a lot about this company. I believe I’ve heard of the name, but that’s it. I might check into it if I’m having an extremely low work week. Thanks! πŸ™‚
