$0.4 per word
For most writers this isn’t bad when you convert it to naira and if the work is steady. That is over 16k for 1000 words which can be done in an hour or two. If you can do this for 30 days, you earn more than the average lecturer with a PhD

THIS THREAD WILL ONLY MAKE PEOPLE ENTITLED. SO LONG AS IT WASN'T FORCED AND IT WAS TRANSACTIONAL, THERE'S NOTHING LIKE WORST PAY. IF YOU FEEL A PROJECT IS TOO SMALL FOR YOU OR DOESN'T INCLINE WITH YOUR INTERESTS, DECLINE PARTICIPATING IN IT.
With due respect sir/ma, I disagree with this. Slavery shouldn't be a choice. It should be outrightly discouraged and discontinued. Because we know that there are people in desperate need of money that is why we choose to offer next to nothing as payments for jobs. This shouldn't be. Why should someone tell me that he will pay me 200 naira for 1000 words? Because he knows that I may be desperately in need for money and so I will accept the barbaric offer.

Most of these clients earn over 5 times what they pay. So why is it hard to pay the writer a considerate amount for the time, effort, fuel spent and other resources used? We shouldn't continue to accept such a mentality on the basis of choice. If this practice is firmly resisted, it will greatly help.

I did.

The only writer who stayed with me from start to the end will be paid his 1 Million by September.


How many young dudes can save 1 Million after 2 years work?


Let's stop tarnishing the integrity of things. If I could pay 100k per month, I would, but as of then, I was at my startup phase. It took windy curves and turns, but after the whole storm, I bless God, all is now calm.



If I'm such a bad person, setup your own organization, have 20 workers and pay each 1M per annum to criticize me by superior action

I have been on this platform for a while and have seen that some people actually offer just #500 per article....like that's really bad.

So, it just made me really curious. What has been the worst pay you have ever received as a Nigerian freelance writer?
Mine was 40$ to rewrite a 20k words content. It was to be in batches of 10$ for 5k word. It was the worst lows of my life. I was broke, hungry and no wear to go. Every morning, my brokeness would stare me in the face and make mockery of me. I took the job,and started. I must say rewriting is harder than the Israelites walking through the Arabian desert.
For 4 days and 4 night I was working till I finished the first batch of 5k words only for the man to return it for revision.
I managed to revise it till he approved the final draft.

Ladies and gents, that was my last time. I didn't go back for the rest of the work. I ran away for dear life.

I offer 5,000 per 1000 words. Specialty work: N40,000 for 5,000 words. But you must be really good such as the guy I have now who I will recruit into the major team I am building.

The problem is that the so-called writers are bad. Poor English, bad use of punctuation, grammatical errors, and the number one cardinal sin: PLAGIARISM.

Respectfully, I think you should give people the benefit of doubt. I've worked with many people here and there are good materials here.

I offer 2, 2.5 naira per word. I believe that's a great place to start from. I upgrade with time if I discover how good you are. Most people claim to be outstanding writers and when they write for you, you want to tear your face off. How can I pay premium price and you give me below-average articles? Show me your quality first and I can give you what you deserve. No buyer is smiling spending on bad writers. Most people are paid what they deserve if you ask me. If you are not on the receiving end, you'd never understand.

What's more pathetic is when I write better than the seller.

Hmmm.... That's good.

By the way, I'm a writer. I can write short stories and novels. I also do non-fiction. Anything you want, content writing or proof reading, I'm available.

NB: I'm referring to anybody that reads this post.
