5 Signs That Agency is a Pimped-Out Content Mill…

By Carol Tice  on Make a Living Writing site:

Want to write for a marketing agency? It’s a great way to scoop up freelance assignments. But if you’re not careful, that agency might actually be a content mill looking for cheap tricks.

Believe me. I learned this the hard way.

When I saw my first article published on US News and World Report I should’ve jumped up and down while singing the Halleluiah chorus.

But I didn’t.

Instead, the sight of it tangled an angry, disgusted knot in the pit of my stomach. I just got pimped by a content mill.

I wrote that article for a digital marketing agency and sold it for 20 bucks. My name wasn’t even on it.

But hers was—the web savvy millennial who’d purchased the content. It was right there next to her photo and the bio touting that she was a freelance real estate writer.

And I don’t want you to make the same mistake.

Here’s how to tell if that agency is nothing more than a pimped-out content mill
