Internet Brands- Back from the Dead?

Freelance Writers needed at Internet Brands Publishing

It appears that a few years ago Internet Brands was a jumpin jivin' content mill for freelancers.  They work with several reputable companies, pay well, and at the time had plenty of work.  After a while it seems, as with all good things, the workflow came to an end and those writers still on board moved on to other things.  For the moment however, it seems Internet Brands is back from the dead with more work, good pay, and a solid reputation despite a dry spell.   Complaints and Praises Since about 2008 or so there has been forum chatter that basically only praises Internet Brands save one exception, an occasional lack of work.  That is not so different from any other content mill, and when you take into account the considerable higher pay, there really is no complaint at all unless you fail to follow the age old freelancing rule of keeping plenty of eggs in your basket.   Current job openings show some standard size articles paying as much as $30!   Internet Brands … [Read more...]
