I have been paid for writing on 4 sites so far. I will provide a quick description of each site and my experience with it. Each site is basically the same in that clients request an article be written for a set price and a writer clicks on the request and writes it. The client then has the option to accept the article, reject the article or ask for revisions.
HireWriters was the second site I signed up with. If I remember correctly, I had to take a basic grammar test and submit a sample piece of writing. They took 3-4 days to approve the article and I was up and running.
My experience with HireWriters.com has been very good. It is my favorite site so far to write for and I have made more with this site than any other. In the 4 weeks that I have been writing for HireWriter I have made $478 and have written 58 articles.
There are 4 levels of HireWriters:
Beginner – $3.85 for 500-700 word article
General – $4.58 for 500-700 word article. Requires 3 articles with an average rating of 4.
Skilled – $6.08 for 500-700 word article. Requires 7 articles with an average rating of 4.1.
Expert – $15.71 for 500-700 word article. Requires 14 articles at 4.6 rating.
Things I Like About HireWriters.com
- They pay more. HireWriters starts out at a higher price per article than iWriter (see my review on part 2 of this article.)
- Easy to Quickly reach Expert level. It only took me about a week to write 14 articles and have the star rating that I needed to reach the Expert level. If you write well and get the articles in on time, you shouldn’t have any trouble reaching expert level.
- Time to complete each article. Most articles give 24 hrs to get the article completed. This allows me to check for articles throughout the day and accept them and be able to work on them later in the evening or early morning.
- Good writing platform. I feel that a big part of writing quality articles is presenting them in a nice way. The HireWriter platform has bold, italics, indentations, etc. Everything you need to make a good looking, easy to read article.
- The clients seem nicer. It just seems that the clients are more appreciative of the work on HireWriters.com. I have received several bonus payments after turning in a quality article.
Things I Don’t Like About iWriter
- Once you accept the article, you must complete it. The other sites I have tried allow you to cancel the article once you’ve accepted it. HireWriters doesn’t allow for that so make sure you are confident you can complete the article.
- Not a lot at the expert level. I’ve made a couple hundred dollars from the expert level articles that I have written. But there aren’t a lot of them.
HireWriters.com Review Conclusion
I would highly recommend HireWriters. There is always a good selection of articles to be written throughout the 4 levels. Once you get a good relationship with a client, they can direct request articles from you. Not only does this mean the other writers don’t get a chance to take the job, but you make a slightly higher percentage.
