I just got accepted as a writer for textbroker. I’m starting at level three. A good friend from Triond.com referred me but I’m not happy. Although I’m always greatful for the help I get. Textbroker is getting away with murder. This article will tell you why.
Textbroker is an article writing site that pays writers for content. The pay is poor. They pay on a grading scale. Let’s just say the most you can make is $20 per article. If you start getting direct orders you may charge more. Getting direct orders sounds nice. But how dare textbroker undermine the art of writing? Are we machines? Is the art of writing now worth $3.50 to $6.00 for 350 words. It’s a shame. In addition you can’t use your article elsewhere.
I suppose I should be grateful for a chance to make some money. But there must be a limit. The Internet is destroying the value of writing. All of a sudden words, once treasured, are worth only pennies. Now we must operate like machines and crank out words like a robot on speed. Textbroker understands that writers can get desperate. They prey on,because of that fact.
Writing for content writing sites is more lucrative to me. Residual income, in the long run, is a wiser choice for any writer. Writing for pennies, at sites like textbroker, ecopywriting and zemandi give me a queasy feeling in the gut.
I started my article assignment from textbroker and I’m afraid I had to stop. I was feeling cheap and insignificant. I was feeling used. The writers I know, who write for these sites deserve much more. Their time is precious and so is mine.
I learned a good lesson. If one wants to earn more writing, concentrate on improving skills. Writing is still an art valued by many. I’ve noticed an increasing demand for content that utilizes good key words. Press release writers are earning $200 and more. Business writers are making a tidy sum. Authors with marketing savvy are reaping the benefits.
Textbroker, ecopywriting, and zemandi, I bid you farewell. My new goal, is to take serious steps to improve my writing. To settle for pennies is not an option.
I value the writings of my friends, who use these low paying sites. I’ve already stated, I would purchase any book they penned. I encourage myself and others to maintain self-esteem when writing for money.
Writing at content writing sites like Triond pays residual income that means articles make money over time. An article will keep making money and those pennies, nickels and dimes turn into more $$$. Articles make money as long as they are left on-line. If we’re going to work for pennies this route is the better deal. Those of you with more experience may have additional comments to add.
