  2. There is a lot of competition on the site and if you’re just joining, you’ll need to prove yourself. This isn’t always easy because you have no work history with the site.
  3. As a new member, you’ll be competing against people who are well established and have worked with a few of the client’s in this past. This can make it extremely difficult to find your first paying job on the site.
  4. Many new members will try and bid as low as they possibly can. This makes it difficult to make money on the site and be paid a decent rate for your work.
  5. You’ll be working directly with the client. so try and avoid back and froths with them. If you have an important question, then ask. Make sure that everything is clear before you start the job. Ask all your questions upfront to make the job easier to complete.
  6. You’ll need to make yourself available to the client. Make sure it is easy for them to get in touch with you.

  8. Make sure your profile on the site is error-free. This includes your resume and cover letter. This is so important because clients will visit your profile page and read what you’ve written. If your information is filled with error, misspelled words, and incomplete information, you’ll never be hired to work on the site. A client wants to see a professional profile before they hire you.

How to Land Your First Job:

  1. It isn’t easy to land your first job on the site. The clients will look at your profile and check the rating you’ve received from the work you’ve completed.
  2. However, if you have no experience on the site, when searching for a job, use the “no experience required” field to narrow down your search and help you find your first job.
  3. Start off with a very low hourly rate. This is important to not try and use a high hourly rate until you’ve established yourself on the site. By accepting a few jobs at a lower pay will help you land more jobs at a higher pay on the site.
  4. All jobs that you complete will help to build up your reputation on the site and gives you a chance to earn more money in the end.
  5. Fill in your profile with all of your skills. Make it look professional, interesting, and let the person know you have the knowledge and experience to handle the work.
  6. Another way to gain more jobs on the site is to take the inbuilt proficiency tests. This proves that you have experience at different levels and helps to improve your chances of landing your first job.
  7. Make sure you don’t try and cheat on your profile. If English isn’t your first language, then don’t say it is. Be honest and tell people the truth. This helps to improve your credibility on the site and clients like to know that you aren’t trying to cheat them or claim you’re something you’re not.

How Does the Company Pay?

  1. The way you’re paid for the completed work is determined by you.
  2. When setting up your payment options you have several choices to choose from.
  3. You may choose to be paid by the hour. The payment system on the site will bill the client’s account for each hour you work. When the job is completed, the billing stops.
  4. Fixed billing pays you once the work is completed and approved by the client. The fixed rate is deducted from the client’s account and you’ll receive payment to your account.
  5. The last payment method is a pre-funded milestone payment. This means that sequential payments are deposited into your account until the job has been completed. Once you submit a draft to the client, you’ll receive a partial payment in your account. When the work is completed and approved, the final payment is credited to your account.
  6. You can choose to be paid through a direct deposit, PayPal, a wire transfer, Payoneer or even Skrill.


This is a legitimate site and you’ll be paid for your work. However, to be hired and find a good paying gig is very hard on this site. There are way too many people competing for the same work and this makes it difficult to be selected for the position. The freelancer’s who’ve worked on this site for years can make a decent amount of money. However, if you’re new to the site it is very hard to prove yourself and land a gig. It will take a lot of time, hard work, and an extreme amount of effort to establish yourself on this site.

  5. Each person has a certain time frame to write his/her article and post it on the site.
  6. The client is the judge of the competition and selects the article that he needs.
  7. When the client judges the content and selects his content, he is working from a snapshot of your article. The client doesn’t have full access to the work you’ve written.
  8. The winner of the competition is paid and has earned 1 point for the contest they won.
  9. You’ll need to win 3 contests in each division in order to advance on the site.

  3. The second level is Lightweight. The buyers can now hire you directly to write an article for them. In this division, your pay is determined by your ranking status. You can write directly for the client’s at the lower pay rate and also compete in the Lightweight competitions. New Lightweight writers earn $0.02 per word. The more competitions you win, the higher your pay. The top pay for a Lightweight writer is $0.05 per word.

Who Can Work For the Company?

  1. Anyone can join the site and compete in the competitions. Just keep in mind, you’ll only be paid on this site if you win the competition.


So far this is a legitimate writing site that pays freelancers to write content articles. Each writer has to compete in competitions in order to advance and increase their pay rate per word. The competitions are started by the person who needs an article for his site. The person who purchases the article is the one who decides on the winner of that contest.

My Thoughts on This Site:

  1. This is a relatively new site that has a different way of doing business. People need to prove their writing skills in order to advance to higher paying jobs.
  2. I like the idea of competing in competitions to prove your writing skill. However, if you lose the competition, you earn nothing from what you’ve written.
  3. The company claims that they don’t take any of the prize money from the competitions, and the writer is paid it all. This makes me wonder how the site can stay in business and continue to pay for the expensive web hosting each month.
  4. As a new writing site, it will be hard to stay in business and keep writers in this type of a platform. People will grow tired of writing for the site and not being paid if they lose the competitions.
  5. I also believe that a brilliant writer should be paid more than a second-class writer. This site allows seasoned writers to be paid a fair price for each word they write.
