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.
Are you a 4- or 5-star author looking to maximize your earnings in 2015? Managed client teams are a great way to do just that.
Managed clients are some of Textbroker’s largest clients and may place significant volumes of orders on a regular basis or big one-time projects. Textbroker provides the client with project management services that include editorial checks, deadline adherence and compliance checking. Textbroker recruits and manages teams of qualified authors to complete these orders.
Getting articles accepted on the first try is all about choosing comfortable assignments, understanding the needs of your client and continuously improving your writing.

Many of our managed clients provide very detailed instructions, and when editing, I’ve often had to send articles back for revision when the instructions were not followed closely. We never like to send articles back for revision because it delays the client receiving the article as well as you, the author, being paid for it. The principle holds true for any client, not just the managed clients, and making sure the instructions are followed is the first requirement to having an article accepted on the initial submission.
Textbroker offers an extended level of service with the Managed Service option. Managed Service gives you additional support and a personal account manager when you want us to manage your projects for you. Find out more here.
