Textbroker is an incredibly popular place to write for because they’re hard to beat in many areas: they now pay weekly, they accept people with no writing experience, and their editors give you quality reviews that will actually help you become a better writer over time. And if you’re lucky enough to get promoted to level 5, the amount you can earn for the articles you write is pretty impressive.
The point of this post is to give you a list of a few other writing sites like Textbroker in case you wanted more options and were looking for something with a similar sort of setup. I cannot say that any of the sites I’m about to mention are as good as Textbroker, but they might be good to apply with just in case Textbroker or any other site you write for are having article droughts.
This site is very similar to Textbroker, but has a few disadvantages. First off, everyone who applies starts off at the first writing level (lowest pay) regardless of writing quality. As you may know, Textbroker assigns your writing level based on your initial writing sample. People who are really good often get placed at level 4 right off the bat. It doesn’t work that way at The Content Authority. You cannot get your writing level up unless you consistently submit quality content. However, Textbroker only hires US writers while The Content Authority will accept people worldwide provided they can get paid by Paypal and have a good understanding of the English language. Payments are also made weekly here every Saturday. *Just discovered that the site says they are not accepting writers right now, but you can go ahead and apply and they will keep your application on file for when they are.
London Brokers is similar to Textbroker in a way because they have a pool of articles to choose from and you are technically doing the work for their clients, not for London Brokers. Also, many of the articles are very SEO oriented, just like with Textbroker. The main difference here though is that London Brokers offers pretty low pay and unfortunately I’ve had a lot of comments from readers who did not have good experiences here. But if you’re looking for writing sites like Textbroker, you might want to consider applying and just keeping them on the backburner in case you can’t find anything to write anywhere else. They pay every Friday via Paypal and they claim to accept people from countries outside the US provided they have a strong grasp of the English language, although a few of my readers from countries such as Africa who speak English perfectly have had a hard time getting accepted in spite of their fluency.
This site actually pays a little more than Textbroker, but it’s much harder to grab the assignments. Writer Access usually does not have that much work up on the board. When work orders get dropped, it generally happens in the wee hours of the morning so unless you are up at that time, it might be hard to actually snag any jobs. I really like the pay and setup of this site, but I wish there were more work to do. Writer Access pays monthly with Paypal and you only need $10 in your account to get paid. Currently, only writers in the United States are eligible to submit content here.
I have never applied to this site so I have no personal experience, but from what I understand they do operate in much the same way as Textbroker. The pay rate here is somewhere between $5 and $10-$12 per article depending on the writing topics and styles you are approved to write on. One great thing about this place is that they do pay every week with Paypal. To apply, you have to visit this link and submit a ticket there asking if they are hiring. If they need writers, you’ll be sent instructions on how to apply.
This is a new site that I absolutely love the layout/setup of. I signed up here but have yet to submit any work. Anyway, it’s like TB because there is an available assignments board, most of the work is SEO/keyword related, and you are writing for their clients, not directly for iWriter. The one big downside to iWriter is that the pay is very low when you start out. Most articles do not pay more than a few bucks to maybe $5 maximum. However, after you’ve signed up there is a message at the top of the screen saying that once you get promoted to “Top Writer” you can start earning between $5 and $10 per article. Most of the articles on the board look fairly easy to me, so if you can get through them quickly, the low pay might not be all that bad.
I hope this list helps you if you were looking for more Textbroker-like options. And if you’ve never signed up for Textbroker and believe that you have no interest in earning any money writing, I suggest trying it out! You might be surprised by how much you like it, and you can’t beat the weekly pay.
