Is Media Shower a good freelancing place for writers? What is Media Shower, anyway? Here is everything you need to know.
How It Works
At Media Shower, there will be a number of articles waiting to be taken by writers. However, writers must first submit a “pitch” to the editor. In the pitch, the writer suggests a title and an outline for the article. If the editor and the customer like the pitch, the writer can take the article.
Each article must be at least 500 words and pays $25. Some articles may need to be promoted on a blog or social media and will usually pay extra for that. For some articles, a writer may even be able to suggest their own price. Payments are made on the 10th of every month for the previous month.
The Application Process at Media Shower
To apply, you must first submit a resume and/or links to previous work you have done. If they like it, you will be asked to write a test article of 500 words. If they like the article, you will be accepted as a writer. They may even use your test article and pay you $25.
So, Is Media Shower Worth It? Can It Really Be True?
The truth is that $25 an article is pretty good for a content mill. On the other hand, you will be writing quality content, not bland keyword-stuffed articles. In addition, you can’t just choose an article to work on and then do it; you must first submit a pitch. This means that there is a likelihood that another writer will get the job. In addition, as with all content mills, the availability of work will surely vary.
So it really depends on you. You probably could make some extra money here and there through Media Shower, so I wouldn’t just dismiss it. On the other hand, you should not view it as a primary source of income, only as a way of finding some extra freelance work now and then.
