    Hi Steve,
    I went to the Flexjobs website, and it requires those seeking employment to pay a fee based on a month, quarterly, or yearly to use their site. Does this seem right? They write that we can check them out with the Better Business Bureau, but I thought I would check here as well since you list them.

      Yes, FlexJobs is a legitimate paid service. They search the web to find actual work from home job listings and verify their legitimacy. You are more or less paying them to do thousands of hours of research for you for just a couple bucks.

      I get it’s not for everyone, that’s why I listed 32 other companies here, but if you want to save some time and find the most up-to-date and active job postings, a FlexJobs membership is beyond worth it. Plus, it’s fully backed meaning if you aren’t happy or can’t find a job, just write them for a refund and they’ll send you your money back.

    Thank you for such an extensive list. I’ve found this information to be quite valuable in my search for a part-time proofreader job. Also, the Hello Essay link is broken.

      Thanks Greg, but it looks like Hello Essay has closed their doors.

      I have removed them from the list.

    Hi steve,I found this really helpful,but,can you tell me whether it is easy to get a proofreading job with no experience….but I love reading and researching ..

  • Jessica

    I am so glad I read this article. I honesty it probably would not have ever crossed my mind to do freelance proofreading. Now it has and you laid down a great list of companies that I will have to check out for myself.
    (Any way to make some extra cash)
    I hate talking about it , but I too had been got by a flashy “become an online marketer overnight” scheme. My overtired self, while nodding out at 4 am waiting for my son to fall back asleep, paid $77 to them. Not nice.
    It is really comforting to know that there are people (like you) who care enough to make it a mission of theirs to warn others and expose these *bleeps*

      I think every one who has tried to make money online has fallen for one of those flashy garbage programs at some point in their journey, myself included. That’s why I started this site. I wanted to connect people with REAL opportunities.

    Hello Steve,

    Thanks so much for the list of profreading companies and the detailed explanations you have given.

    I really want to try thisw type of online opportunities to see if it can help me supplement my income. I can see that Babbletype and Pure Content will be good profreading companies to give them a try.

    I’m are surely going to try any of the two to see if I get hired so I can work and some extra income in addtion to my personal passive income business.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to give such thorough and valuable infoermation.

    Hallo there Steve,

    I have been looking for proofreading jobs that pay via PayPal and which lets the workers get job without struggling too much with other people with the same skills.

    I see pure content offers work to the workers’ emails and they also pay with PayPal. So I’m going to get into this. I’ll update you on my experience with this after a week.

    Thanks a lot for the details here.
