Happy New Year! If earning money with your writing is one of your goals for 2013, make sure to check our blog regularly. We’ll be posting information about various ways aspiring technical (and even not-so-technical) writers can use their skills to earn cash throughout 2013. Our first focus is on the website Textbroker: www.textbroker.com
Textbroker is an article writing service: it hires writers to provide customized content for clients. Writers work independently, via the Textbroker website: they log in, select a writing assignment from a list of client orders, and follow client specifications regarding topic, content, and length of articles. Writing topics vary widely, which gives authors plenty of content choices. Writers must submit their article by a specified deadline; once articles are submitted, they are reviewed and accepted, or sent back with requests for edits. Once articles are accepted, writers are paid for their work via an online Paypal account.
It’s simple to become a writer for Textbroker: visit www.textbroker.com, click on the “Authors” tab, and follow the registration instructions. You’ll be required to submit a writing sample, and provide proof of U.S. citizenship. Writing samples are scored on a scale of 1-5; your pay rate corresponds to your writing sample score.
Like all online writing services, Textbroker has pros and cons. To find out more, check out the reviews of the Textbroker website at http://www.sitejabber.com/reviews/www.textbroker.com
Textbroker isn’t the answer for every aspiring author, but it may be a good place for you to start earning a few dollars with your writing talents. Check it out if you’re interested, and let us know how it works out if you do!
