What is Writer Access?
Writer Access is a writing site, similar to Textbroker and Content Authority, that hires freelance writers to create content for their clients.
How much does Writer Access pay?
Pay varies according to a writer’s level. Once you are hired, Writer Access will determine your writing level, which might be raised or lowered at any time depending on your quality. Levels go from 2 through 5. You can expect a little more here than you can from Textbroker. But anywhere from $5 to $100 per article realistically.
What is the method of payment for Writer Access?
Payments are made between the 7th and the 9th of each month with Paypal. Writers only get paid if they have at least $10 in their accounts, and payments made are for the previous month’s work. For example, you would get paid between March 7th and 9th for work done in February.
What does the application process for Writer Access involve?
To apply, you have to upload a writing sample (which they won’t publish – it’s just to check your writing quality), your resume, and fill out some basic information about yourself. You also get the opportunity to fill in a section explaining your interests and why you want to write for their site. In my experience, it doesn’t take that long to hear back once you apply. It was less than 24 hours for me. They will email you confirming your acceptance and you can log in to find out what level you were accepted at.
Does Writer Access hire writers outside the United States?
No. At this time, Writer Access only accepts U.S. residents.
How does writing for Writer Access work?
When you log in, you can check to see what jobs are available on the open order board. If there are any available at or below your approved writing level, you can claim them and get right to work. Once your work is submitted, the client has to either accept it or not within three days. Your content will be auto-accepted if the client doesn’t review it within that time frame. If you particularly impressed a certain client, the client can add a bonus to your pay if he chooses. They also have something called a “love list” the client can add you to if he or she particularly likes your work. You’ll get an email notification if a certain client has jobs up and you are on that client’s love list.
My Experience With Writer Access
I did apply and was accepted at level 3. I have yet to do any work for them because there are rarely any jobs available at my approved level. There also seems to be very few jobs available, period. When there are jobs available, it seems they are usually for writers at levels 4 and 5. I have noticed that I get an email that comes in very early each morning, like around 5 a.m., letting me know that jobs were posted and how many. When I log in to check, there is usually nothing there. I don’t get up that early, so I’m guessing that other writers beat me to the available jobs.
Final Thoughts on Writer Access
If you’re quick, this might be a good writing job to have. You’ll probably have to stay on top of things and check your email really early in the morning to find jobs. Maybe in the future they will have enough work available that doing this won’t be necessary. Writer Access pays much better than Textbroker or Content Authority and is a similar type of writing site. People who write for them report being paid and on time. The site looks very professional and is easy to navigate. There’s no harm in applying here, but like I said, you might have a hard time getting to the available jobs before other writers do.
