Scripted is the best place for freelance writers. Find out why below.

Scripted has opportunities for beginning and experienced writers. You may have tried other online platforms that didn't impress you. Scripted strives to do better. Why should you submit an application to become a freelance writer on Scripted? Many writers respond to the following reasons.

Competitive Pay

Scripted writers made over $1,000,000 in 2020. We offer competitive pay and writer rewards that rival any writing platform in the industry.

Write What You Know

Scripted has clients across 37 different industries so you can find work within your expertise and on your terms.

From small businesses to large corporations, find the perfect clients and build long-term relationships.

Host samples of your work in your Scripted profile. Build your portfolio and diversify your writing skills to help grow and expand your career.

Control your workload and set your own hours. Scripted writers work all over the world on their own schedule. What could you do with that freedom.

Payment & Project Management

Don't worry about chasing down payments or organizing projects and deadlines. Scripted's project dashboard and payment management makes freelance writing easier than ever.

Specialize in the Industries You Know

Scripted constantly looks for new partners that need professional content writers. If you have experience in a certain industry, you can use your previous work and education to start writing for companies in areas like:

That long list of industries continues to grow as Scripted brings more writers and clients to its online platform.

Attract Clients with Your Writer Profile and Reputation

Scripted has room for new and established writers. If you don't have much publishing experience, you can start building your profile by bidding on projects focused on topics you know well.

When you impress your clients, you get excellent reviews that improve your reputation score.

Keep adding content to your portfolio and exceeding your clients' expectations. It won't take long before you have a steady stream of companies requesting your ideas or hiring you directly through the Scripted marketplace.

If you already have published articles, you can add them to your writing portfolio immediately to display your skills and areas of interest.

Form Long-Term Relationships with Clients and Account Managers

Content writers often feel underwhelmed by online platforms because they get assigned random projects that they don't really care about. Scripted takes the opposite approach. When you join Scripted, you get opportunities to develop long-term relationships with the clients and account managers you enjoy working with.

Take a moment to send clients positive messages when they accept your projects. Ask them for feedback that will help you perfect your pitches. A little extra communication shows that you want a long-term working relationship instead of a quick job.

Scripted's account managers can also help you find projects that match your skills. Get to know the people who manage accounts on the platform. When they know they can trust you with priority clients, you will get work that pays well and pushes your abilities.

Accept Smart Match Jobs Instantly

Scripted developed SmartMatch to help match customers with the perfect writer instantly. When a customer submits a request for a SmartMatch order it gets offered to a pool of writers that match the order criteria and all writers in that pool have a chance to pick it up. If you match that order, you’ll be notified and can pick it up instantly.

The SmartMatch system saves you the time of creating unique proposals for each potential job and allows you to instantly pick up jobs that match your skills and experience.

Pitch Ideas That Pique Your Interest

Do you like coming up with unique ideas for blog posts, video scripts, ebooks, and more? Scripted allows you to reach out directly to customers and pitch your own ideas for them to order instantly from you.

This feature allows you to research and write about a topic that interests you rather than wait for a content order to come along. As you grow your relationship with customers you’ll be able to learn what kind of content they need for their business and approach them with your unique ideas.

Set Prices Your Knowledge and Experience Deserve

When you pitch an idea on Scripted, you get to set a price that you believe is fair to the client and your experience. Clients can even send you an additional tip to reward you for excellent work.

Every project has a minimum price that ensures writers get paid a fair amount. You always control how much you charge, but the minimum prevents writers from drastically undercutting each other for jobs.

Work as Much or as Little as You Want

Some writers at Scripted use the platform to earn a little extra money. Others rely on it as their main source of income.

You can use Scripted to write as much or as little as you want. As a freelance writer, you control your schedule.

Quick Payments for Accepted Projects

Scripted partners with Stripe to get money in your bank account quickly. You can usually expect payments to reach your account within three to five days after your client accepts the project, depending on your Writer Tier.

Scripted's platform lets you track all of your projects and payments through a convenient dashboard.

Manage All of Your Clients From One Dashboard

As a freelance writer, staying organized can be a big challenge. As a Scripted writer you can manage all your customers, jobs, and pitches in one dashboard so you know what to prioritize and what stage every job is in. Each job is placed in one of these four stages:

  • Proposals – pitches that clients are still considering.
  • Writing – assignments with upcoming deadlines.
  • Editing – projects in the editing stage before they get sent to clients.
  • Ready for Review – jobs now in clients' hands ready for acceptance.

You can also use the Scripted dashboard to manage your Writer Portfolio, writing samples, payments, and job invitations.


Support From Scripted Team of Professionals

At some point, every writer runs into a situation they don't know how to handle. Perhaps a client demands something outrageous, or you're not sure how to answer a question about billing.

Scripted has a support staff of professionals waiting to address your issue as quickly as possible. Just reach out to Scripted Support to get your question answered. You'll get a friendly, helpful response ASAP.
