The content that we have on our websites is one of the most important parts to the effectiveness of our site. There are many things you can do to make your website ascetically pleasing, but the content is a whole different story. If you’re working on a website, there is a good chance you might not always have the time to write your own content. Why not just hire someone to help you out? In this article, you will learn how to outsource your writing.
How I Outsourcing My Article Writing
Let me introduce to you one of the most valuable resources regarding content creation. I have tried many freelancing websites like Upwork, Freelancer, Guru, PeoplePerHour, etc. I have even trolled internet marketing forums to look for people to hire. Over the years I have had some success finding people to write content. But, all too often I hire someone they work fine for about 1 month, and then they stop communicating, lose interest, or for whatever reason I can’t get them to meet my deadlines anymore. It’s very frustrating!
Benefits of Using Textbroker.com
TextBroker.com changed the way I outsource content for my sites and my client’s sites over the years, though. Here are some of the top reasons I choose them over all other sites:
- 11 Years of Business.
- Fast Turnaround Time.
- Plagiarism Protection.
- Integrated With PayPal (or Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.)
- Quality Control System.
- U.S. Based Writers
- Various Languages
- Over 100,000 Writers
How TextBroker.com Works?
First, you need to sign up with an account with them and deposit $25 into your account. You can use a credit card or use my preferred method which is Paypal. You’re going to have to wait 1-2 days before your account is setup and TextBroker.com does verify all accounts before you are allowed to use their system.
You’re going to want to click on “Assignments” Then you’re going to want to add a new project:
You can name this project anything you want. For me, I have many different clients on various websites I work on, so this makes it easy for me to keep everything neat and tidy.
Now you’re ready to start your first order; click on “Open Order.” This makes it available to all writers with the specifications that you specify down below.
Here is what a typical order will look like:
Assign the project to the one you have setup previously. Then make sure you put it in the correct category. Then you can select the quality of writers you want to assign it to. Here are the prices based on the star level or writers:
- 2 stars .013/word (high school level)
- 3 stars .018/word (2-year college level)
- 4 stars .024/word (4 year college level)
- 5 stars .074/word (top writer level)
I tend to hire only 3 stars + writers. The quality of the writers for 2 stars seems to be quite poor and I find myself making lots of edits to the content I get. However, if you’re on a tight budget and don’t mind doing a fair amount of editing this is a good option. 3 and 4 stars a pretty decent and 5 star writers are great but can cost a pretty penny for 1,000 word articles.
You can then put in the duration in which in which the content needs to be completed by (1-10 days). Then you put the word count. I tend to give them a 25-50 word threshold (example 700-750 words) You can either check SEO options; yes or no.
Then you simply put in your order title. Notice you can add multiple titles if you have various articles that you need. Then, there is an order briefing where you can specify exactly what you’re looking for. I like to do some research for writers I want to hire to point them in the right direction.
You will get an email when the order has been completed. Please note, that TextBroker.com runs them through Copyscape. You don’t have to sign up for a Copyscape account and don’t have to add credits to your account. You can request revisions at this point and then finalize the transaction at this state, by giving them a positive or negative feedback.
When you find writers that are really good, you want to keep giving them more work. After I find good writers for different niches I am in; I then start sending writers direct orders.
You can send personal messages to writers through Textbroker.com too. I tend to do this when I need to guide different writers through content that needs further explaining.
Over the last 5 years, I have placed hundreds of orders with TextBroker.com. I have only had 2 or 3 pieces of content that were delivered to me that was of very low quality. I did get credit back for it, though. I really favor using this system verses manually having to find people on the various other outsourcing websites. Overall, I am very happy with TextBroker.com and will continue to use their platform.
