Textbroker Introduces Author Rewards Program, TBTY


Textbroker Author Services Rep

Hello Textbroker authors!

You should have heard that in 2019, we increased our 2-, 3-, and 4-star OpenOrder prices. It is our first price increase in six years. We also raised the minimum DirectOrder and TeamOrder price/payment per word by 12.5%, which will increase pay for many authors who do those types of orders. In addition, we’re pleased to announce that we will take a significant share of the OpenOrder price increases and give it to our authors in a program we are calling Textbroker Thank You, or TBTY for short. It will thank our authors in three different ways: 1. Quarterly Thank You, 2. Thank You Milestones, and 3. New Author Thank You.

The Quarterly Thank You will represent the largest component and will thank our most active authors with money sent to their accounts after each calendar quarter, based on how much they earned during that quarter. We will start with author earnings in Q1 2020, so the first quarterly amounts will be credited to author accounts in April 2020. The Q2 2020 amounts will be credited in July 2020, and so on. This part of TBTY will thank hundreds of authors each year.

The Thank You Milestones will reward authors who write a significant amount of words for our clients. We will keep track of how many accepted words each of you has written, starting as of July 1, 2019. You will see a TBTY word counter on the first page of your author account each time you log in. The first thank you comes after 1 million words accepted, which sounds like a lot (it is a lot!). But, we anticipate sending out at least a few laptop bags before the end of 2019.

There are five levels, and the rewards are:

Finally, the New Author Thank You will consist of two different rewards that new 4-star authors can receive based on the number of words they have written. Authors who have already written more than 1,000 words as of July 1, 2019, will not be eligible. What’s the purpose of this component? First, we spend a lot of time verifying and onboarding thousands of new authors every month, and many never write anything or write just one order and then don’t come back. Second, this problem is most pronounced with 4-star authors, who also tend to be the most in demand. Our hope is the New Author Thank You rewards will help motivate new 4-star authors (or old ones who have not written much for us yet) to keep going and give Textbroker a real chance before they decide to continue on or not. The TBTY word counter will let 4-star authors see where they stand for getting these two thank you rewards.

In addition, you will find a new TBTY word counter located on your Account page. This will help you keep track of your milestones progress!

We have also released an order filter tool on your Statistics page, so you can monitor your earnings for your Quarterly Rewards.

Many of you made suggestions for this program, and we really appreciate the input. Rewards from the TBTY program certainly are skewed to the authors who write and earn the most at Textbroker. If you’re an author who does not write that much, know that we still appreciate your contributions. Our hope is that you spend more time with us if you can! If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please email us at [email protected].

Will the Textbroker Thank You program just count money earned from OpenOrders or does it include DirectOrders and TeamOrders earned money in the thresholds as well?
