One recent ordering trend in the Textbroker platform is clients placing many orders at once on a regular basis. For example, one client may place several hundred orders, all with the same instructions. In the excitement of having many orders to complete, it can be easy to repeat yourself or someone else’s ideas once you have submitted a number of similar orders by the same client. Unfortunately, this is a no-no at Textbroker for several reasons, and we are taking steps to ensure all authors submit unique content.
In Author Services, we receive hundreds of emails on a weekly basis, and we strive to help authors complete orders for our clients. Many of the questions we receive are about instructions, revisions and rejections. This blog will provide some useful tips and insight into how these different aspects of being a Textbroker author works so you can write as efficiently as possible.
We’ve noted your feedback in the Author Forum and are happy to offer you some clarification as to what these changes mean for you and how you should proceed in writing orders.
The change in ratings is two-fold – non-managed orders are now being rated for instruction compliance, and orders written for managed clients are now receiving star ratings.
We feel that offering the most comprehensive feedback to our authors not only provides them with the tools to improve their skills, but it also ensures that our clients are getting the content that best meets their needs.
As Google, businesses and consumers continue to stress the importance of content marketing and providing quality, useful information to readers, clients need text that is not only written well but also offers helpful material, fulfilling all their requirements. It's important that Textbroker reflects these priorities, which is why we will be incorporating instruction compliance as a factor in star ratings. While this change may seem intimidating at first, a little practice makes perfect. Below are tips to help you excel at following client instructions.
