Textbroker is a site that offers content writing services for businesses at extremely low rates. You can purchase written word through Textbroker for as little as 2 cents per word. The cost varies depending on the quality of content that you are looking for.
This might seem like a great venture for those who are looking for content. But how helpful is Textbroker for writers? It really just depends on what you are looking for. There are a lot of bloggers and writers who discourage other writers from using brokerage services. Only you know your financial situation. If you are struggling then every little bit helps.
When you initially sign up for Textbroker you are asked to provide samples of you work. These samples can be links to already published content or uploaded directly from your computer. Textbroker evaluates your writing and decides your quality level. The higher your quality level, the more you will be paid. Don’t get too excited. The pay is just a fraction of what you can make elsewhere.
If you are a seasoned writer you might feel insulted by the low payout rate. If you are not a newly struggling writer then Textbroker might not be for you. But for those who are just getting started the thought of steady pay might seem like a dream come true. You can make anywhere from half a cent to 4 cents per word depending on your quality level.
Do not worry if you are brought in on a low quality level. Textbroker reviews your most recent articles and re-evaluates your quality level. There is no specific time frame for this. You can go to Textbroker University and complete courses to speed up your re-evaluation process. After just one course I was re-evaluated.
There are people online that claim to make $600 to $1000 per month. This is possible if you work extremely hard and produce content quickly. Writing can be a time consuming venture. It is often difficult to find high paying markets. I completely disregard those who discourage writers from writing for broker sites. The same pretentious writers that tell you that brokers are a rip-off will continue to avoid revealing better markets. They are not the ones paying your bills and often forget that all of us have to pay our dues and start somewhere.
