Master Writing Jobs Scam: Why Pay For Something That’s Free?

By Luke T. | Negative Reviews

Master Writing Jobs review featured image

Charles Dickens, J.R.R. Tolkien, J.K Rowling… You’ve heard of these name right? Of course, they’re all famous authors. Becoming a great writer is something that takes practice but certainly isn’t impossible to achieve. And with the ability to self publish books with relative ease you no longer need to find a publisher to get your work into the hands of people all around the world.

We’ll be looking at Master Writing Jobs today, which tells visitors they can become a paid writer from the comfort of their own home. Can you? Yes of course. Is Master Writing Jobs the place to go to become a master of the written word? I’m afraid not.

MasterWritingJobs Review: Did I Say Review? I Meant Scam

Master Writing Jobs is a place where you can find writing jobs. Well actually, it doesn’t do that at all.

What it actually does is take your money, give you useless “bonuses” that are irrelevant to someone who wants to become a writer and then points you somewhere else where you’ll find a job. There is no real teaching involved here.

Let’s break it down and I’ll show you what you’d be spending your money on if you signed up.

There is Nothing Of Substance Here…

When I first saw this product, not only did I know it was a scam, I thought there would have been training to show you how to write like a professional.

Sadly, I’m disappointed even further.

I found ONE paragraph of good content here. Check out paragraph 3 in the image below:

Only piece of truth on Real Writing Jobs

The trick to being great is to write about topics you’re passionate about. Just look at several posts here on StoppingScams.com and you’ll see that Ian and I are both very passionate about exposing scams online so people like you aren’t conned out of their hard earned money.

There’s a 41 page eBook the creators have put together to talk about writing but there isn’t anything there that you couldn’t learn here for free and that’s more up to date.

Real Writing Jobs eBook

Look at the title. Where on their website did it say that they were going to show you how to become a blogger? It doesn’t. It talks about how you can get paid to be a writer because, according to their website, “Companies NEED your help creating content so they can attract more visitors to their web sites and blogs” and not that you should start up your own blog or website.

Let’s also look at what’s covered in the eBook:

  • Blogging Basics
  • The Process
  • Picking a Niche
  • Installing WordPress
  • Your Content
  • Monetizing Your Blog
  • Traffic to Your Blog

All important topics for starting your own blog. But 41 pages for all of that? This eBook is far too short to give anyone enough information to start their own blog.

It’s also completely outdated. The internet changes all the time. You really need to know what’s current and working otherwise all your efforts are wasted.

If we were still in 2010 and the marketing techniques that worked back then still worked now, this book would be OK at best. Now it would just be a waste of precious megabytes on your hard drive.

Is There Any Relevance To These Bonuses?

Not only is the eBook mentioned earlier irrelevant but the bonuses in the members’ area are also pointless.

Amazon, Twitter, Google, selling on eBay… What has any of this got to do with writing? It doesn’t.

Most companies are after writers to write stellar blog posts, articles or some copy writing.

What you really need is information about learning how to research the topics you’ve been asked to write about, different styles of writing (formal, conversational etc.), formatting and proof reading.

These are useful skills to master.

You Can Become a Writer For Free

The biggest gripe I have with Master Writing Jobs is that you can do what they promise on their home page completely free.

You can head over to Elance, Odesk and Freelance which are great places to find 1,000’s of people looking for writers.

You need to create an account which is free and fill out your profile. Most of them ask for your experience but if you have none don’t worry because you’ll still be able to apply for jobs, but don’t expect to get higher paying jobs until you have some experience.

I’ve had experience with Odesk. You can definitely earn upwards of $50+ per hour once you’ve got plenty of experience under your belt and have some all-important positive reviews left by previous customers.

So why would you pay for Master Writing Jobs when you can sign up to these services for free?

All MasterWritingJobs will do is send you over to a similar service for where they’ll earn a commission.

Final Rating: F

There really is no reason for anyone to purchase Master Writing Jobs with the hopes to become a writer.

Becoming a great writer just takes practice and perseverance. When I first started writing I was terrible. I still get people to proof read my work because there’s usually a handful of mistakes I miss even when I proof read myself. Even the professional writers who have written bestselling novels have several people go through their books before they’re published. Editors make a lot of money to do this job.

The final nail in the coffin with this product, and a good indicator that the product is a scam, is when you try to leave the page you suddenly get offered a “special discount.” Sometimes the products are genuine but I’m afraid Master Writing Jobs isn’t one of them.

My recommendation is to sign up to a service like Elance, Odesk or Freelance and just start applying for the simple jobs at first to get the experience. Not only will you get to practice writing but you’ll also see how the process works as a freelance writer.

My next recommendation would be to check out Ian’s free training courses as they have a lot of training on how to improve your writing. Look at the chart below and you’ll see that you’ll also get a lot more than just the training if you want it.

A new one you may want to check out that I’ve been seeing a lot of ads for lately is Masterwritingjobs.com. It seems like they are doing the same thing. Asking for an upfront fee, and they’ll apparently send you jobs to make money.

Nice, direct and up front to his point. Luke you just defined your websites name! I wonder what real writing jobs got to say.

With all this freelance writing on the web, I wonder if how true are those reviews they have in all the products, services, and other stuff. However true they are, I want to try writing online and I’m going to take a shot on your training which you said is FREE.

Your article was exactly what I was looking for! Thanks for confirming. I have never paid for a job yet and I am not interested in the quick training leaflets offered by these scammers. I realize many young writers are duped into these. Offering services such as these versus colleges are so attractive to many aspiring writers. I applaud your endeavors to expose these scams. Unfortunately, I must say that offering your service while blasting another, with a fee, is not working for me. Thank you though for exposing the truth! Best of luck!

I signed up for MasterWritingJobs.com yesterday. It does NOT appear to be what it claims. I keep receiving emails about ‘writing jobs’ available with a ‘Start Today’ button which only sends me right back to that verbose video I watched in the beginning. It’s like running on a circular treadmill inside of a hamster ball.

I WANT MY MONEY BACK AND I QUIT! LOL

Thank you so much for sharing this. The world needs more people like you—expose the frauds!

    John Vickers June 10, 2017

    Hi Phoenix: I had the same problem. In their FAQs they have an “Its not for me how do I quit” It tells you to email them and if you do not get any satisfaction then email them and you’ll get a 100% refund. Well, I cannot find an email but they do have a “contact us” which looks like an email and I did tell them their information was of no use to me and requested that refund. I’m still waiting. I did find a phone # from the charge line on my CC, I was asked to hold while they connected me. After about 30 seconds they said that they were busy and they would call me back. I’m still waiting. Fortunately I paid with my Credit Union Visa and I will be disputing this charge through the CU.

Thank you, Luke. Master Writing Jobs looks good until you get to the fee they charge. Thank you for saving me a headache and some $$. I am new as a copywriter but am almost finished with a fantasy novel so I have experience in the creative genre. I will look at the free resources you indicate. Again, thank you.

I just can not thank you enough for saving me from the selfish grip of “work at home” scams. I was about falling victim on masterwriting website when I stumbled over your piece.

God bless you for being a real, good Samaritan online.

Thank you for posting! I lost my job because of a spinal injury and was looking to fall back on writing. I came across this Writing Jobs page in my Facebook news feed and was ready to jump. I will check out the sites you recommended and see where the future leads.

Thank you so much for your feedback concerning Master writing jobs. I unfortunately fell for this scam, and the only reason I came across your content is because I have been trying to get my money back. I had the experiences that you described. To make matters even worse I was advised to download ebooks that some did not even contain content. It was a total waste of my time and money. I will do definitely do more research in the future. I will also use more discernment, understanding that if it sounds to good to be true…it usually is too good to be true. Again Thank you for your research.

Hi Luke,

Thank you so much for your research on Master Writing Jobs. Unfortunately I fell for this scam. I was actually in the process of trying to get my money back when I ran across your research. I experienced just what you said I would. I even downloaded some ebooks and several were so outdated, that the format was not even compatible with my laptop.

I have enjoyed writing for a very long time, and I had never even considered becoming a freelance writer as actual career. I have however relearned a couple valuable lessons. First always do my research. Second…if something appears to be to good to be true…that is usually because it is. Thank you for your research…now back to getting my money back!
