Author Spotlight: Kristopher
Long-time Textbroker author Kristopher offers insight into his sustained success on our platform.
Hello Textbroker Authors!
Today, we bring to you the second in a series of many Author Spotlights. We wanted to take a moment every month and recognize an author who has showed great enthusiasm and growth since first signing up.
We are keeping our eyes peeled for future spotlights, so keep on working hard; you might be next!
Author Spotlight: Get to know Kristopher.
How did you hear about Textbroker, and how long have you been a Textbroker author?
My sister first told me about Textbroker in 2010, a time in which I lived in a hotel room after losing my job and still trying to get by from the 2008 economy collapse. I worked as a 3D animator and needed extra funds, so I started writing for the site that summer. Fast-forwarding five years, I still write for Textbroker full-time as a 5-star author and live in a great apartment overlooking the forest.
In your opinion, how does an author get the most out of his/her Textbroker experience?
If a client leaves an “excellent” rating as feedback, send that client a simple “Thank You,” and offer to do future work. You’ll land a lot of direct orders that way. You’ll also land a few clients that you may not get along with. If that’s the case, keep it professional. Thank the client for the opportunity, and pass on any future orders.
What piece of advice would you give to a new Textbroker author?
Swallow your pride. I used to think that I had a command of the English language and knew proper sentence structure. I even questioned the feedback that a Textbroker editor would give me. If you’re new, take all the feedback that you get, and learn from it. Subscribe to the online AP Stylebook, get a CopyScape account, and remember: Google is your friend.
