LetterRep.com is a site where buyers buy, well, letters. Need to write a job reference letter for someone? Buy one for a fee. Need a letter explaining your poor credit? Buy one. Need a letter requesting an import/export agreement between your company and one owned by the Sultan of Brunei? You got it--for a fee.
As odd as it sounds, in this day and age of the Internet, you can hire just about anyone to do just about anything--even write a break up letter for you. I'm not joking. Pay for someone to write a "Dear John" letter. Check it out at LetterRep.com.
So what's in it for freelancers and people who want to earn money from home? LetterRep.com needs writers. Letter writers. And they pay you $10 every time someone buys your letter.
Writers can earn money in two different ways. First, you can upload your own, existing professional letters. Of course, the letters need to be modified. For instance, using substitution brackets in key places, such as "Dear [hiring manager]," is important. If you already write professional letters, or have a handful sitting around, it might be worth going over them and uploading the documents to LetterRep.com. Every time a buyer purchases one, you make $10.
The second way to earn money with LetterRep.com is to write on request. Buyers can list specific requests, such as "letter declining a job" or "letter explaining my derogatory credit history" or "letter to my ex-husband's girlfriend asking her to do a police background check." The writer then looks at the request and either suggests existing letters on LetterRep.com, or writes a new letter tailored for the client.
Most of the LetterRep.com specific requests are seemingly ordinary. For anyone who has worked in a secretarial or administrative position, writing such letters may be second nature. But what takes one person ten minutes to write may take another person hours. Hence the birth of this service. If you, as a writer, are skilled with letter writing, this may be a great opportunity to earn some money using your skills.
In addition, many of the requests have a legal slant to them. Paralegals, lawyers, of business consultants have an edge with this service. Many of the more technical or legal requests go unanswered. A niche is waiting for the right person.
Signing up for a free account with LetterRep is easy. The process takes two to three minutes. Writing on request is exceptionally simple as well; you click on the request and a text box appears. Type your professional letter in the box, fill in the additional requested info (i.e. bullet points explaining the letter), and hit submit.
The letters are reviewed by LetterRep.com staff within six to twelve hours. If there is an editorial problem, the letter is moved into "My Problem Works" on your account, where you have a chance to fix any problems and resubmit. If the letter is clean, LetterRep.com considers it "live" and ready for viewing by prospective buyers.
While letter writers earn $10 per letter for sales, payout does not occur until you reach $50. In other words, you must sell five letters before you can receive a payment.
LetterRep.com offers buyers a niche service that isn't found elsewhere, and writers a unique opportunity to earn money in a very different writing capacity. To learn more, visit LetterRep.com and explore this market.
