It is sad that every now and then content writers all over the world fall in the trap of fraud content writing clients. Yes, it is a 100% true fact that there exists few bad fishes in the tank which makes the entire water dirty and impure.
But, what can you do about it? Nothing really.
You can take some common precautions like these:-
- Get work only from reputed online content writing job sites – Difficult but Safe.
- Get work only based on referrals – Tough luck but safe.
- Background check must for Facebook/social media based clients – Uncertain but Helps.
There are no rule books to teach you how you can be far from the clutches of fake content writing service providers. You have to be careful of every new client approaching for work. Just like opening a bank account needs your entire proofs of identifications as it is a mandatory standard procedure. Similar to this make sure to do some steps and take enough time to feel whether the person offering the next lucrative offer is a genuine one.
Here is what I do (still I have faced two big frauds in my career) –
- Speak over phone for every new client.
- Ask for his profile or website and make a background check.
- Ask about the content writing service providers official address. Do a general Google search.
- Get the first work always paid as soon as it gets approved. This gives you a good idea about whether the client is serious to have you in the team.
- Keep a general communication over phone to know the person better.
Years of my association with this profession of writing content has made me come across some good and some fraudsters. The trick to really sustain in this field is to go slow and not rush one bit. An eagerness to earn more within a quick time often clusters our eyesight to look beyond clearly. So, take a lot of time and clear the vision and then move ahead. This way you can avoid a Big Fall.
I wanted to help my fellow writers in a small way I can. Read more
