        Thanks Morris,
        I recently signed up to Neonwriter.com simply to check it out. I haven’t taken the time to inspect it closely yet, but (so far) it looks pretty neat.
        I will update this article once I look into it a bit more.

    Very valuable info. I came across constant content, which I think is also worthy to be mentioned here. What is your take.

    Secondly, one of my greatest concerns regarding these links is whether they are applicable for Asian writers as well? I am from India and would love applying for most of these content mills provided that they are open for writers like me. Kindly respond.

    Writer Access is about as much like Textbroker as vanilla ice cream is like gasoline. Really? I don’t know where you’re getting your information but it’s DEAD WRONG on that count. I make far more on WA than I ever did at TB. Granted, the work may be harder to come by but the fact is that if you’re a level 4 or 5 writer at WA you have far more opportunities than you’ll ever have at TB

      Perhaps it has improved, because it was almost always empty in the past…even for 4-star writers.

      And by the way, the whole comparison refers to the fact that users can “claim” assignments; the comparison has nothing to do with the amount of assignments or opportunities. So relax and don’t get your panties in a bunch.

    Textbroker is absolute trash. Your lifeline on that website is in the balance of some college student editors that degrade you because of subjective commas.

    All it takes is 1 or 2 Level 3 rated articles to be put into the Level 3 category where there’s rarely any work. Even worse, it takes months to get any of your articles rated and if your articles sit for too long without a rating, they just automatically give you a “neutral” rating.

    I sincerely hope some day more of the writers there open their eyes and move on. It’s absolutely absurd to be held to subjective academic standards for $1.25 to $2.00 per 100 words. I know my comma usage isn’t 100 percent perfect in some scenarios but why does that place judge writers by it rather than what clients think?

    Every client I had on there gave me 5 stars, I adhered to their instructions, gave them content that was well formatted and I researched every piece I did on there. In the end, I got dropped down because of 2 commas and some editing notes that made no sense to me.

    Content mills usually come with really strict rules and a laundry list of requirements you have to adapt to.

    I can vouch for the customer service at iWriter but the clients are penny chasers. I’ve seen jobs that have an entire page or more of requirements just to earn $4 on a 700 word article.

    Stay away from content mills altogether in my opinion and market yourself to companies that don’t know about job boards, marketing forums and content mills. They’re all full of hungry and broken English writers fighting over peanuts and plenty of clients that pay peanuts.

      Hello,
      I had the same experience with textbrooker.
      Is there a site you would recommend for the purpose of marketing my writing skills?
      I really need a job but I’m kinda lost when it comes to finding decent work online.

      Thank you in advance

    For companies and agencies about to get started in content marketing and need to maintain a blog presence, BlogMutt is an excellent resource. BlogMutt has over 8,000 writers, all US-based, that have to pass a writing test to write original content for businesses and agencies.

    It amazes me when I see people complain about places like iwriter or textbroker. The places that pay very high seldom higher any writers. At least textbroker WILL hire you, even if they are “trash.” At least you do have a chance to find and actually do some work if you wish to. Low pay beats NO PAY.

    I don’t think we want to wait more than a year trying to work for places like Dailyworth, Modern Farmer, Cosmopolitan, the Motherlode or even Listverse.

    Your information about Writer’s Domain is wildly inaccurate. The site pays more like $0.03-$0.04 a word. But, they are very dry right now and not hiring. They have a very long waiting list. They aren’t really a great option for this list because no one is going to get hired to write for them.

      I think many of these places are good maybe at the beginning when you’re testing the waters, but of course, there comes a time when you just have to move on to better clients. That said, they CAN be profitable depending on the title in question, as sometimes you might write a 75-word piece with barely any research required.

    Excellent post – have been writing for Textbroker, and have looked into iwriter, but honestly hadn’t heard of any of the other ones you listed! Excellent resource definitely bookmarked…

    My only other experience in looking for writing jobs was on Freelancer, where a client had a deadline POSTED for 3 DAYS OUT in the job description, yet AFTER accepting the assignment (summarizing 3 allegedly “10-page” articles, condensing them down to 1.5 pages each) – she then informed me that she actually needed it completed within 3 HOURS!!!

    She ALSO failed to mention that those “10 page” reports were actually 10-14 pages in 5pt font double columned (microscopic font in two columns per page, much like you’d see in the Oxford Dictionary – essentially the equivalent of 20-30 regular pages per original article)…

    So in reality, what she actually expected me to do was read 60-90 pages, condense that content to 4.5 pages, have time to proofread it and edit it, and be prepared with a polished end product of a quality that I wouldn’t be embarrassed to associate my name with – all within 3 hours?!?

    Oh and that’s not all… It’s not as though the topics were of the variety that would one could reasonably believe that just any skilled writer could churn out in a crunch without intimate familiarity with the original work itself…OH NO….

    An example of one of the three titles:

    “The Interactive Effects of Sales Force Controls On Salespeople’s Behavior And Customer Outcomes”

    NOT KIDDING

    That one was actually 14 pages (not 10) Double – columned 5pt font (i.e. roughly 28-30 normal pages) – and the other two topics were no less hairy… And She Expected all that for $25!!?!?!?!?!

    ugh had to vent about that, it’s been eating at me for the last two weeks . lol 🙂
    In any event, glad I found your blog, I’ll be sure to return soon 😛

    The Content Authority is rather wishy-washy and passive aggressive about their clients. They will love you after a while and then cut you down to the first tier after a while. They have a lot of problems understanding basic syntax. Avoid them. It is a waste of time.
