Content is more important than ever.

Research from the Content Marketing Institute reveals that at least 55% of companies will increase their content marketing budget this year.

Whether you’re a writer looking for established outlets to spread the word, or you’re a guest blogger looking to promote your brand and get traffic, you can get paid to do so.

Many sites will pay you to contribute content, while still allowing you to have a bio and retain a link to your site – but very few sites will pay you really well.
