Everyone is looking for a good freelance site nowadays. If you are following the freelance writing world closely, then you know that most “content mills” have gone down. If someone finds a suitable company to work for then the word spreads fast. I first heard about Scripted.com when I was browsing WAHM.com. A few people said that they have been accepted to write there. Of course, the writer in me wanted to go check it for myself.
What is Scripted.com?
They are basically a writing company who has clients. This company hires freelancers to write for those clients. On the bottom of their website it shows what type of clients they have. Some of them include CNN Money and Venture Beat. Scripted proudly displays work they have done for these companies. They will hire freelancers, like you and I, to do blog posts, articles and even social media updates.
What is it like to sign up for Scripted.com?
Join Vindale Research, the famous survey site where you earn rewards to share your experiences about how you use the internet.
The website is very simple to navigate. Whenever I came to the website, I had no trouble figuring out where I could sign up. This is a good sign because I hate when I have to look around for a sign up button. Scripted asks for your name, phone number, experience and any past degrees you may have. So, I would say the application process is really simple.
What do you write when you sign up with Scripted?
From what I can tell, you can only take jobs in certain specialties. You need to have confirmed experience in these specialties. In essence, this is not a content mill because you cannot just sign up and start claiming work. Scripted says that they do not just accept anyone and the sign up process is not an easy feat. Once you are inside the doors of this writing company and you take a job- you are expected to complete it.
Here is a quote from their website:
“When you take a job, it’s like a contract with us. You’re expected to complete it on time and to the best of your ability. If you fail in either respect, you will no longer be invited to take jobs on Scripted.”
Is this a real company?
For you content company haters out there, this is a real company. The pay is not disclosed but that is something you learn once you are accepted.
Remember, this is a contract position- you are not an employee. It’s hard to believe that this company actually has an office but they do. There are real people who go into work every day and help make Scripted run smoothly. If you sign up and look around the site where it says “jobs” you will see a variety of assignments for x amount of dollars. Some were $25 and some were $14…it just depends on what you get approved to write for and what your expertise actually is.“Our address is 423 Washington Street, in the Jackson Square district of downtown San Francisco. We share space with an architecture firm and occupy the front-most offices.”
I have not been accepted as a writer through Scripted as of yet. I will keep you posted as my experience with them progresses. The company is very thorough in their FAQS and they sound like they have tried to cross every “T” and dot every “I”. So be sure to read over it to learn more about Scripted.com.
