There are many online sites that publish list articles, but fewer of them accept submissions from freelance writers and pay them for their effort.
If you have an interesting list of bizarre, the most, the least, the scariest, the craziest, or any other list item in mind, then this article will provide you with five sites that pay for accepted listicles from contributors. The payments range among the sites from five to 100 dollars.
These sites do not require you to be an expert in the category or subject you would like to submit your listicle to. However, your article should be original and based on facts. At the end of the article, you are required to list your sources for verification that your article is factual. You should embed a link in the sources you’ve listed to the relevant source sites. Thus, do a thorough research to ensure your list article contains facts.
After your first submission is accepted and published, it is feasible to send another submission with the possibility of becoming a regular contributor to any of these sites.
You should read some published articles in these sites to get a feel and don’t forget to visit their guidelines for more information on submission details.
