Somehow or rather I agree with Jack to only use Textbroker when there is free time or as backup when times are tough.
Seriously, the earnings from this site is only around a penny per word and there’s no way any writer can get rich by focusing here.
Even for Jack, a 4-star rating earning 2.4 cents per word, it requires five hundred of 1,000-word articles to make enough money to cover an average car payment in my country (here’s where I come from).
Accomplishing this century mark requires more than 1,500 writing hours (almost 6 months earnings of 8 hours working per day) and that’s assuming none of the content is sent back for rewrite!
Of course if you can write quickly enough to hit the 500 projects goal, then it is still possible to earn a decent living. That’s provided if you could write as fast as less than 90 minute per 1,000 words.
Nevertheless, there appear to be enough work demanded by Textbroker’s clients on the site.
You literally become a content machine when you focus to earn money online from Textbroker.
Looking at the situation and reviews of most writer, I somehow or rather feel that there won’t be much satisfaction in the work. There’s just too little reward for the effort you put in.
Textbroker is definitely not ideal for freelance writing as a whole. Low prices mean it will take a freelancer more time to achieve financial freedom.
It is in fact a good example of why freelance writers struggle. There’s nothing can be done to reverse the situation though.
When clients demanded low prices, writers have no choice but to comply in order to earn a living.
But is this the way you want to short-change your talent?
I would only suggest this site to new writers who just started to provide freelance writing services.
Textbroker can be a good place to practice and improve own writing skills with experienced editors who are ready to provide advice.
But definitely not a long term nor sustainable mean to earn money online.
As a writer, you possess an in-demand talent that can easily earn you tons of money. I would say writing for other people is called the “active income” because you are trading your time for money.
Why not write for yourself and start earning passive income stream doing affiliate marketing?
