Discussion in 'How to Make Money Online' started by Maggie's DIY Fashion, Aug 2, 2017.
I signed up for this site a long back and wrote several articles but none of them got accepted. I was trying but heard that the site is down and they are not paying properly. How well you write it is difficult to get accepted there. May be I didn't write well or I don't know what the problem was. So after getting frustrated, I stopped working there. Is it good now? Are your articles getting accepted? Anyway thanks for sharing
I haven't tried this site but generally, I've heard that writing online for websites is extremely saturated and difficult. You might as well start your own web page and start from that. You won't have earnings right away but they'll come. When writing for other websites, it's up to them if they accept you or not (and if they pay you or not, and how much). You might as well start building your own thing instead of writing for someone else
I really wish that this sort of activity turned out to be a little better than I was lead to think. In the beginning things looked a little promising and there was opportunities and all of that but not so much anymore, although maybe I am just looking in the wrong place.
It is true that the industry is nowadays saturated, but people still have a chance to create and work on their own writer profiles. Iwriter nowadays even has a premium plus level that pays so much money for short articles.
While I agree that there are some bad requesters who reject work for no good reason, there are also great requesters who can even get you special requests you alone.
I believe frustration grows from people expecting to make money 'easily' and from those who flaunt insane incomes (some people lie about how much they make, but there are some people who make more than the figures displayed). Again, instead of putting in the work to grow an account, some people want a shortcut; buy a high-rated account and become rich instantly.
My advice is: don't give up yet. Do not get discourage by the rejections or the low income for now if you are a beginner. Do not be intimidated by those who claim to make $3,000 dollars a month. Start somewhere and purpose to make one small step at a time. For years, I worked with TCA on level one, until I reread their precise Writer's Rubric/ Instructions and employed the same ... within months, I had risen to tier three, gotten clients who purposely looked for me, etc. I also worked with Iwriter- had some clients who made me rethink my writing career- very frustrating, but I also purposed to not let these few bad apples derail me- I did well and the ratings kept going up- I have a good level two (and only because I have not been working on it). I should resume and rise to the level four-- now these are the levels everyone want to buy instead of building own accounts- Anyways, people have different strategies. I hope you find a strategy that works.
Let me give another example; I hate bidding sites and I have not even completed my profile on Upwork (I am working on it this month), but there are people who make figures you won't eve believe in Upwork. They have their livelihood there. Sometimes, you just need to start from scratch to understand the process,grow with it, and be ready to put in much effort and time.
I tried to apply for iwriter around a year ago and haven't had much success with it. I wasn't qualified to work for it unfortunately but hopefully I will find other good opportunities.
Unfortunately, I gave up on Iwriter in February.. I merely build my profile there, since I felt that my work wasn't being checked. I can't say I grew impatient, but, the competition and the ranking factor there is real. After weighing the benefits of investing my time and energy there, I decided otherwise. I might revisit the site soon anyway if I get more convincing information about their improvement on their relation with their workers. Otherwise, it ain't bad out here, finding something much profitable of ones interest.
I like your attitude. Sometimes we have to gauge the rate of return of our energy. I wish you all the best in all you are doing. I am planning on revisiting my UpWork account and see it buildability.
