My Personal Experience with Textbroker.Com
My Personal Experience With Textbroker.comI have been writing for Textbroker.com for a while now. I have often thought about quitting by dead beat job to just work full-time at textbroker.com (but I wouldn''t recommend anyone to do this). Textbroker is an alternative to the content king of the net, Associated Content. I have stated numerous times on this blog why I do not like AC anymore ( I don''t feel like getting into all the reason), but I will state a few distinctions between AC and textbroker.
Textbroker works the same as AC. It is an online content marketplace for writers to hook with webmasters looking for content. What I love about Textbroker is that the amount of money you make is totally up to you. It all depends on how many articles you can churn out and at what rate you can do this at!
The difference between Textbroker and AC is that you can earn more at textbroker.com. AC plays a lot of games by only allowing the writer to "see" a limited amount of articles in the "call for content" section. Some writers have stated the longer you write for AC, the more offers you will get. (rolling eyes).
AC requires more research and words. They want a 500 word article for $2! This is slave wages. Even if you can churn out 5 articles per hour to make $10/hr, your fingers would get tired of typing these many articles in one day (trust me I have tried), and also, you will not be able to submit more than 10 articles. Also, other members at Associated Content hog content by claiming up to 4 articles at once. Then they outsource the articles to Indians who are willing to work for low wages! (so sad). It is sad to think people don''t mind writing articles for $1.
With textbroker, you can only claim one article at a time.I like this because other writers will not be able to hog all the good stuff from other writers. You just look in the marketplace, claim an article and get to writing. Most of the webmasters just want you to use a certain amount of keywords in the article, and the rest of the article can be filler words. I can easily write 5 articles per hour at an average of $15 per hour. Once again, I can only write 10-15 per day before I start getting burnt out.
To get accepted in the writing program, you just need to write a short sample less than 200 words. Anyone can get accepted and from there, you will be graded on a system from 1-5. The higher your rating, the more you will be paid per word. Right now, I have an average rating of 3 which is not bad. Sometimes, assignments run dry in my rating section, so I accept to do articles that require a lower rating, meaning I would be paid less.
I would highly recommend this site if you are looking for ways to make money online. This is a way better option than the other content sites like Constant-Content and Associated Content as they have less strict rules.
You will also get paid every two weeks and can make payments only twice a month. I would suggest choosing Paypal to get your payments as you will get paid a whole lot faster than waiting for a check. Good luck, and don''t burn out too easily. Try to set a goal to write 10 articles per day until you get the hang of it.

I just want to say thank you so much for everything you wrote about text broker, I just signed up with them and did my first sample writing and i have to say i have never written anything before except letters but I really do hope i did good on my sample writing, as i really want to do this from home. you see i have systemic lupus and this prevents me from working a regular job out side of the home and writing I think would be a good fit for me so I hope they let me join.
Again thanks so much for the tips at text broker.
