Textbroker is an incredibly popular place to write for because they’re hard to beat in many areas, especially for beginners: 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 isn’t bad.
The purpose 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.
#1 – The Content Authority
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.
#2 – Writer Access
Just like Textbroker, Writer Access gives you a star rating (two stars through six stars) and the amount you earn is based on that. Writers earn between 1.4 cents to $1.40 per word depending on their star rating. You’ll take a test so that Writer Access can determine an initial star rating for you. This rating can go up over time as you turn in quality work to clients, which means you can earn more. Writer Access pays twice a month using Paypal, and you have to have at least $10 in your account in order to be paid.
#3 – Need An Article
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 here to read our review. Right now, it says they are at capacity and do not need writers, but you can get yourself on their contact list in case they have positions available in the future. You can also read a review we wrote of the company here.
#4 – Writer’s Domain
Writer’s Domain will pay you between $15 and $38 to write articles based on specific keywords for their clients. They often have openings worldwide. They pay once a month with Paypal on the 5th or whenever your account reaches $100. Bonuses are possible. Rather than give writers a star rating, their editors give each article submitted a star rating and your pay will be based on that.
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.
P.S. – Would you rather work for yourself as a writer and set your own rates?
This is the most profitable route to take as a freelance writer. You can get your own clients and set your own rates, which you cannot really do with the content sites listed above. If you’re interested in becoming a freelance writer with your own business, I’d recommend reading this post about Gina Horkey, who was able to go from $0 to $4,000 per month in freelance writing income in six months. She has also created an affordable, high-quality eCourse that shows you exactly how to do what she did. I went through the course content and thought it was fantastic information.This post may contain affiliate links. Please see the disclosure for more information.
