Q: Is Listiller for me?

Are you a writer, blogger, or general freelancer that focuses on making money on your own terms? Can you share tips about self-employment, promotion, side gigs, and related subjects?

On the other hand, could you, yourself use some help?

If you answered “Yes” to any of the above, then jump right in.

2: Publishing Articles

Q: What type of articles do you accept?

While we do have a special interest in freelance writing, this is a general community of bloggers, freelancers and self-employed individuals that wish to learn more about the following topics:

Writing: Freelance writing tips and advice.

Blogging: Think social media, SEO, increasing blog traffic, WordPress, and general blogging success.

Working from home: Creative ways to work from home, make money on the side, or becoming a solopreneur.

Q: What are the benefits to publishing free articles?

In a nutshell, you can either write paid assignments (more on this later) or submit free articles for a ton of benefits. These include:

– Optionally earn 100% ad revenue (AdSense/Chitika required)
– Submit new OR existing articles (that you own)
– Include self-serving links
– Your article is exposed to thousands of monthly visitors
– We do some article promotion for you
– You may include a short bio or blurb

Refer to our main Sign up page to read more about your benefits.

Q: Does Listiller also pay for articles?

We tend to request some paid/direct assignments throughout the month.

However, you should consider this just a small feature, or a bonus. They’re offered on a “first come, first served” basis.

Refer to the “Tax Information” section below to learn how to gain access to direct assignments (paid tasks).

Q: How much do you pay per article?
Pay scale depends on word count and article complexity. Typically, though, expect up to 4 cents per word.

Length goes between 75 to 600+ words per assignment.

Q: How often do you pay?

We process payments on Fridays via PayPal.

Q: What happens after I submit a paid article?

We will review it and either accept it or ask you to make modifications depending on its overall quality.

Q: Does Listiller own the FREE articles published on the site?

We only own the articles that we pay you for. We do not own the articles that you publish for free.

When we pay you for an article, we take full ownership and assign it under our name.

Q: How can I write direct assignments (paid articles)?

Please refer to our Content Guidelines page.

3: Tax Information

Q: Why do you need a form W9?

Please note: This form is only needed for the occasional paid assignment we request.

Also note: You DO NOT need to give us a form W9 for the jobs available on the main Job Board. Those jobs come from third-parties, not us.

The form is required because we are paying you as an independent contractor.

You would receive a form 1099 from us if you accrue over $600 dollars from direct assignments. Again, this is only for assignments we request. You do not need to worry about this when it comes to third-party jobs.

Q: Can I still join Listiller if I don’t want to submit a form?
Yes, absolutely. You will still have access to most features described in our main Signup page.

    • Finding freelance writing leads
    • Making money online
    • Making money offline through contract/freelance work
    • General tips to help your freelance journey, both online and offline

2: Publishing Articles

  • Writer Town is an exciting community for self-employed individuals and those looking for creative ways to make money.

    While we have a special interest in freelance writing, we also accept a wide range of topics on making money.

    We accept articles about:

    Writing: Tips and advice on making money through writing.

    Making money online: Becoming a better blogger, social media, affiliate marketing, online promotion, various freelance work, and everything in between.

    Making money offline: Quirky and creative ways to make money offline. For example:

    • Selling unique or weird things on Craigslist

    • Renting your driveway
    • Driving for Uber and other companies
    • And much more. The more creative, the better

    In conclusion:

    Most topics should focus on supplementing your income, directly or indirectly. For example, topics on motivation/productivity are acceptable if you associate them to your long-term financial goals. Same goes for topics on improving your blog, for example.

    Writer Town highlights publishing, exposure, and general ways to be successful as a freelancer or contract worker.

    Once you gain access to direct assignments, they are available on the right hand side of the main “New Post” screen. People can claim assignments on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Refer to the “Tax Information” section below to learn how to gain access to direct assignments (paid articles).

  • Pay scale depends on word count and article complexity. Typically, though, expect up to 4 cents per word.

  • We process all payments every Friday via PayPal.

  • We will review it and either accept it or ask you to make modifications depending on its overall quality.

  • No. We only own the articles that we pay you for. We do not own the articles that you publish for free.

  • While we are very casual and accepting (the complete opposite of Grammar Nazis) you should still try to publish quality work. Your article may be rejected if its quality is exceptionally low.

  • First submit a form W9 to us (we send you one via email when you initially sign up). You will be able to write paid articles once we review it.

    Please note that you will technically be able to claim such assignments without a form W9, but we will not be able to compensate you until you submit the form.

  • You can practically write however you want.

    We are fans of conversational writing, so don’t ever worry about complex grammar rules that are often so intimidating. Feel free to incorporate the following into your writing:

    – Professionalism

    – Casual or conversational tone

    – Humor and sarcasm

    – Yes, even smiley faces

    The important thing is that you deliver quality. We don’t care about passive voice, we don’t care about the proper use of XYZ word. Just deliver something useful that your readers can enjoy.
