My Experience With iWriter

**Alert*** I have just received notice that iWriter is offering applicants to jump through the hiring process through their fast track system and be paid more per article IF they pay a fee of $147 when they apply!! This concerns me DEEPLY and I urge you to NOT comply. I do NOT suggest paying to work with iWriter!! These writing mills pay YOU not the other way around!

Even though many content mills are drying up, there are still new ones popping up every day.  One content mill that I recently gained experience with is iWriter. iWriter is different from other content mills in a few ways – this blog  post will provide more information about iWriter, the type of assignments they have, and how they pay their writers.

 

How does iWriter differ from other content mills?

iWriter is different in a few ways.  First, the way they list their assignments is rather unique.  If a requester has multiple articles that they want written, they’ll be listed under one heading.

For example, one that’s currently listed wants 10 articles written about heating, ventilation and air conditioning.  To see details on each specific article, all you have to do is click the plus sign to the left of the project listing, and you’ll be able to see the articles available, the specific keywords that the requester wants mentioned in the different articles,  any special instructions, and how much each article is worth.

In addition, each project will show information about the requester, such as how many reviews they have, how many articles they’ve approved, and how many they’ve rejected – this will give you an idea of how easy it will be to get your article approved.

If you choose to write one of the listed articles, all you do is click the “Write article” button, and you’re taken to a screen where you can write the article – this screen also shows a countdown timer so you know how much time you have left to write the article before it’s returned.  In addition, you can search for projects both by subject and by requester – this is useful if you don’t want to go through the whole list of projects to see if there are any available on a certain subject or from a certain requester.

 

How much do you have to make before you’re eligible for payment?

This is one thing that makes iWriter different from other content mills – where most content mills have a pre-determine minimum amount that you’re required to make before you can be paid, you can actually set your minimum amount with iWriter.  Your minimum must be at least $20, but you can set a higher minimum if you know you’ll be doing a lot of writing.

 

When does iWriter pay?

This is another unique feature of iWriter – you have a few different choices of when you get paid.  You can choose to be paid every month on the 5th, every month on the 25th, every Tuesday or every other Wednesday.

 

How does iWriter pay?

iWriter pays by Paypal.

 

Are there other writing opportunities I can take advantage of at iWriter?

Yes – if a requester likes your work, you cold be sent special requests.  You earn more for these than you do for other articles, so if you are ever sent one take advantage of it.

 

How quickly are articles approved or disapproved?

According to the website, articles are approved or disapproved within 3 days – the two I’ve written were approved in less than 24 hours.

 

How do I sign up as a writer?

Go to iWriter’s website and click on the “register” button.

    I signed up with them, but haven’t really looked into it. The rates were … bad to me I guess. But, if you are in a tight bind, then hey, money is money! This is a good review.

    I’ve looked into iWriter and just would not be able to write enough articles to make what I need to make each day. Their payments seem very low compared to other content mills. Actually, if I were in the market for well-written content, I would be a little skeptical of the quality I would receive at those prices.

    I’ve recently stopped using iWriter because of the horrendously low percentage of people who accept articles. It’s seriously appalling at how many people have a sub-par 20% approval rating.

    I read through their Fast Track program and was appalled that they expect writers to pay a fee, and an exorbitant one at that. You should never have to pay to work. That’s called a scam.

    That said, I started writing for iWriter sometime last year and have had a good experience with them. The reasons I stopped writing for them on a regular basis was because of the low pay rates and the sharp decline in assignments.

      I think this tactic from iWriter says a LOT about who they are and where their business is headed! I encourage anyone who is currently relying on iWriter to be sure they have a backup plan.

    I started writing for iwriter just weeks before they started that “Fast Track” program. There is no way I would pay just so I can make more money per article. Granted they pay much lower than I normally charge ($1-3 per 100 words depending on research required), but it is money when that is what you need. I don’t know what time they pay out yet on Tuesdays. This is the first week I should receive payment, but I do not know what their cutoff is. I do not like the lack of customer support, lack of details for those seeking more information, low rates, and 50/50 chance of getting paid. I do like content variety, chance to get paid better rates, and quick requester approval. I will probably continue working with them until I find something better. Thanks for your great review!

    I just wished to know if I can set a lower minimum amount with iwriter and will that be acceptable by paypal or not?

    Hi you all

    I agree with Corey , some clients over at iWriter aren’t even sure of what they need written. You’ll work on their request only for them to reject the final piece in this, snobbish, unprofessional manner that leaves you worked up a bit.

    You’d be amazed at how long it could take you to reach Elite Writer status.

    But I like the fact that you are free to take up any task at anytime without having to bid against other, probably more experienced writers. That way you get a chance to prove of your writing skills as a newbie at iWriter.

    Hey guys, would you happen to know of other sites like iWriter?

    Hi Beverly,

    I agree with you.

    It’s 2014 , now, so do you still write on iWriter? And how’s the experience been?
