Freelancing : Textbroker.com

I’ve been writing for Textbroker off and on for several years now. Mostly off since I’ve had other things I’d been doing. It’s not going to make you a lot of money if you don’t work at it. Until recently, it wasn’t something I had time to do. Now, I have the time, and I have the desire.

Textbroker has a rating system which puts authors into categories. You can only choose jobs in your category, but you can see what jobs are being offered in other categories. All jobs have their pay posted, and it’s non-negotiable. The payments are posted to your account as soon as the job is accepted by the client who posted it.

Payments are done only through Payoneer, from what I’ve learned. They’ve had other payment options over the years, and they’re always looking to make things better for everyone while keeping everything safe and legitimate. They do require a W-9 form to be filled out and filed with them.

There are a variety of ways to get jobs. You can look at the general postings, and you can join teams. I have been invited to join several teams, but there is an option for you to request to join any one you like. These teams have jobs not posted in the general list – they are for team members only.

Most jobs are articles, website content and the like. The most I’ve had to write is 500 words, and I was paid about $6. It’s not much for a single job, but it pays better than many I’ve seen, for this size job. I was offered about the same, on another site, for a job that required me to write 3000 words. I told them what I was making on Textbroker and politely declined the job offer.

This site is great for those who are brand new to freelancing as you get to choose the jobs you want to do, in your category, and you don’t have to bid for them like on other sites. You get rated by submitting samples of your writing. The better the sample, the higher the rating you’ll get. I’ve never regretted joining this site, and I’m still getting plenty of work from it.

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!
