Write and Get Paid

Do you want to earn money online? RealNews was built on the efforts of readers just like you. Readers who didn’t have any experience as writers but decided to put a list together and send it in.

So here is the deal: We will pay you for your efforts. You will get paid for every person who reads your article or story. You don’t need to be an expert—you just need to have English equal to that of a native speaker, a sense of humour, and a love for writing.


You do not need to have any relevant experience or hold any particular qualifications, but you do need to:


To help you out with some ideas, you can write on your view on politics, short stories, health news and tips and more. After approving your article, it will be great to share it on Facebook/Twitter. The more unique user views you get the more money you will earn. Remember that the article you write has to be unique and yours. Don't copy and paste content from other websites as it will be rejected. 


You will earn revenue for every article that is published.

Please note that you will only earn for every unique user that reads an article and reading your article a 100 times will not count as paid views. Publish articles every day and share them on social media to maximise your earnings.
