Making DirectOrders Efficient

Three simple steps to placing perfect DirectOrders help you create unique content with a consistent tone.

So you've decided to place a DirectOrder. Congratulations on finding a great writer! Here are a few tips to get your order done on time and in budget.

  1. Review the author's price per word. DirectOrder pricing is set by author and may be different from our standard rates. The minimum DirectOrder price is 1.95 cents per word. Check that the author's price fits your budget. Please note that the price per word includes Textbroker's commission but not the 30-cent per-order fee.
  2. Send a message. Authors may have other clients and obligations, so please check the author's availability via our messaging function before sending the assignment. It's best to give thelength, subject and delivery date of the article so that the author can respond correctly.
  3. Set deadlines. Have a timetable in place for a response to your message as well as delivery of the article itself. If the author doesn't respond, have a back-up plan in place. You may consider another author or OpenOrders as a back-up.

We're happy to help with any questions about DirectOrders.
