Is iWriter really a good website to write for? How about if you’re a complete newbie? Read my iWriter review before you decide to give it a try. I’ve written for iWriter in the past, so you can count on this being a non-bias review.
What Is iWriter
It’s a content marketplace, a writing platform, a website where you can go to order articles. . . You get the idea. It’s a content and article services. iWriter was created by Brad Callen, who is a very successful internet marketer who has released many products throughout the years. I’m not sure the exact year iWriter was started, but I know for a fact they have been around for at least 5-6 years.
Let’s get right into the things I liked the most about iWriter. This includes:
. Easy to get started: If I remember right, the sign up process was extremely easy and fast. Within a few hours I was able to start writing. However, I think as a new writer you’re only able to write and submit a few articles. After the articles are approved, then you may be given the OK to write more articles, and write as much as you want.
. Plenty of articles: When I joined iWriter, the pool of articles to choose from was a good amount. Like any other writing site, there were times when there were hardly any articles to write. For the most part, I found that it was possible to consistently write around five articles per day.
. Chance to improve rating: Another thing I liked about iWriter is you have the chance to improve your rating. When customers rate your articles, and you get enough good ratings, you can move up a level. This means access to more articles and the potential to make more money. I was easily earning $20 per day on iWriter.
There are other things I liked about iWriter, but those are among the top.
The Not So Good
No writing platform is perfect and all websites have their flaws. The main things I didn’t like about iWriter are:
. Serial rejections: Articles can be rejected, and without just cause. I believe if an article was written in accordance to the instructions provided, then the article shouldn’t be rejected.
. Rating can drop fast: Your writer’s rating can dropped fast if you get a few low star reviews in a row. I remember when I dropped back down to ‘Standard’ writer, it was a mountain to climb to get my rating back up. By mountain, I mean I had to write a ton of articles to get back to where I was.
. Clients can block writers: iWriter isn’t the only article writing service that allows this, but nonetheless I’m not a fan of the feature. I don’t think clients should be able to block writers without just cause. If a writer’s grammar is good and they produce good content, then they shouldn’t be blocked.
That is just my opinion. I can see it from a client’s point of view though. It’s not a bad thing, it’s just something I’m not a huge fan of, in certain circumstances.
How Much Can You Make On iWriter
This really depends on how many articles you write and how many articles are accepted. Me, personally I was easily earning around $20 per day. I’m not the best writer around, nor the fastest. If I could do that amount on iWriter, then I’m betting you can do that too, or even more.
Do I Recommend Writing For iWriter
Actually, I highly recommend it. It’s a great place for a beginner to get their feet wet. It’s also good for those who just want to make a few extra dollars per day. Just be warned, you may run into a few clients who will reject your articles for no reasons whatsoever.
The good news is you can see clients’ acceptance/rejection percentage. Stay away from the clients that have abnormally high rejection rates, but don’t ignore clients who have a small rejection rate because sometimes articles are rejected for legitimate reasons.
Give iWriter a go, but don’t rely on it as your sole source of income. You don’t want to have a good run, only to have a bad run later on. If you haven’t diversified your income, then a bad run means less money for you.
I recommend testing out iWriter for a good month, use it regularly and see what happens. Unfortunately, iWriter isn’t always looking for new writers. If you want to write for them, then visit their site often and then sign up as soon as they are looking for new iWriters.
