Lately, I have been looking into freelancing as a viable side-hustle… and that is what brought me to this site. But can you really make money writing for ProfitF.com?
There are a lot of websites out there that will actually pay you to write content for them. But in all honestly, some pay more than others… and some are not even worth the time, really, unless you are just starting out and need to get your feet wet.
I have done quite a bit of freelancing in the past, so for me, this is actually a more viable option than most side-hustle options that I’ve looked into.
But then again, that does not mean that every site is worth the time.
Is ProfitF.com worth it, though? And do they really pay freelancers to write content for them?
I can absolutely confirm that ProfitF.com does pay freelancers. But before we talk about whether doing so is worth it, let’s first talk for just a moment about freelancing in-general. Here is what you need to know.
The Basics: Finding Websites To Freelance For
Thanks to the internet and the advent of blogs and websites, there are now countless companies that need written content. Companies use written content for a number of reasons, and obviously, they want their content to be good so that readers will take them seriously.
And since most website owners are not actually professional writers, this is usually a task that is given either to someone who works for them, or to a freelancer.
Good freelancers are actually worth their weight in gold to website owners, because they do two very important things. First of all, they create quality content for the website. And two, they give the website owner a business option that does not involve being required to hire a writer full or part time.
This saves the website owner money while also giving them a quality job-well-done for their cash investment.
But as a freelancer, it can sometimes be a bit challenging to find the right writing gigs. You could obviously use freelance websites, but one big problem is that there are a lot of really awesome gigs out there that never make their way onto these sites. And on freelancing sites, you also have dozens of freelancers competing for the same jobs. So you may actually be able to find far better opportunities away from sites like this.
But how do you find them?
That is what I have been working on lately, and I have been publishing reviews of websites that I come across that pay freelancers for their work… and ProfitF.com is one of them.
Keep in mind that freelancing is not easy… but with some commitment to the craft and a bit of determination, a good writer will find that there is actually a high demand for work-well-done. But unfortunately, one of the only ways to find quality sites to write for is to just research. Hours of boring, dead-end Googling, reading, emailing, and studying.
There are a lot of sites out there that give you lists to start from. But still, finding quality websites can be difficult.
I have been actually doing a lot of research to find quality sites, and that is why I am writing this review… to help you, as a writer, to determine whether or not ProfitF.com may be a good site to freelance for.
So with that being said, let’s take a look at it and see what they are all about.
What Is ProfitF.com?
The ‘About Us’ page on ProfitF is actually pretty vague. They say that their website is a website for ‘Forex and Binary options traders.’ They also say that they have an archive containing ‘almost all Forex Brokers, Binary Options Brokers and Trading Software websites, VPS providers, Trading Signals providers, etc.’
There are also instructions on their ‘About Us’ page for how to search their site for what you are looking for.
The landing page of the site is pretty easy to understand. There are buttons that you can click on to learn more about different aspects of what the sites has to offer, and if you scroll down towards the bottom of the landing page, you will find a section that contains their latest articles.
From a design standpoint, I wasn’t super impressed with this site, really. It felt a bit cheaply done. There was a banner ad for their sponsor along the top of the web page, which kind of added to making it feel a bit ‘cheap.’ I am all about banner ads. I understand them and totally understand that they need to be used to help pay the bills. I know that ads in-general are usually necessary. But I also know that you can place them to look better than this one looked.
This was just something that I happened to notice.
I also took a look at the content on the site. I noticed that some things were worded a bit strangely. I also noticed that there was some punctuation missing from time to time, etc.
Next, I read some of the articles that the site had published. I will be honest here—the articles that I looked over were not terrible, but they were also not necessarily ‘pristine’ either.
They were very, very simple… perhaps too simple, and almost made me doubt that the writers knew very much about what they were discussing.
But this led me to wonder how much the site pays for its content… so that is what I looked into next.
Writing For ProfitF.com
Here is a screenshot of the ‘Write For Us’ screen. There was obviously a bit more to this, but this was the top of the screen and seemed to contain the most important information.
So I learned quite a bit here. First of all, I learned that they will hire you to write for them if you can create high-quality content, and are also an expert in Forex or Binary Options trading. Next, I learned that they pay $10 to $50 per post, depending upon the article quality.
Next, I learned that they give you one backlink to your own website when you publish your article, which is pretty awesome.
They want their writers to cover topics like the following…
- Forex/Binary Options
- Technical Analysis
- Fundamental Analysis
- Reviews of Brokers/Programs for trading
- Trading Psychology
- Money Management
The only other thing we found on this page was the contact form. On this form, you need to include your name, an email address, a subject, a message, and examples of your work. For these, you should link to websites that have published your articles.
And that is pretty much it. That’s really all the information you get. So here is what my thoughts about all of this were, after taking a look at all of this.
My Personal Feelings About Writing For ProfitF.com
First of all, I am not entirely sure how long this site expects the articles to be, but $10 to $50 is a pretty significant gap. Getting paid $10 for an article isn’t very good. $50 per article, on the other hand, can be a good price… it just depends on how much they expect you to put into it.
The biggest thing to remember about websites like this, that pay on the lower-end of the spectrum, is this… if they are promising or can offer consistent work, that is worth a lot as well. But if it is a one-off thing, you may not want to break your back to get an article published.
But then again, getting an article published on this site may not be that difficult in the long run, because honestly, the quality of a lot of their content isn’t that great to begin with. So if you are a good writer, submitting to a site like this might allow you to get your foot in the door for other sites, because it will give you an article to link to in your samples. It also shows that you have been published before, which is pretty awesome… because you will need good published samples to get in with larger and more prestigious websites in most cases.
But… if you already have some samples out there and are already making decent money as a freelancer, then there is a chance that trying for ProfitF may not be worth the time. You should also know something about the topic before trying for it as well… which is another detail to keep in mind.
You obviously won’t get rich writing for this site, or for other sites like it… but it could make you a bit of extra spending money if it seems worth it to you.
