Why a Blog, Why Now?

A reader of this blog recently asked why we started now, when it seems that there are no orders. I’ve also been getting e-mails asking about our current situation. I’d like to address both of these points in this post.

A reader of this blog recently asked why we started now, when it seems that there are no orders. I’ve also been getting e-mails asking about our current situation. I’d like to address both of these points in this post.

When we saw Meaghan’s earnings, we had proof that one could truly make a living from our service. At the same time, some of our authors were having trouble communicating effectively with clients. As admins and editors, we have a different relationship with our clients and can only help so much. Insight from another author would help these writers with client relations. When three clients with large (1000+) orders all arrived within days of each other, we thought it would be a good idea to have someone give new and struggling writers a few tips and tricks on how to be successful, deal with clients, and use our system to the fullest. Meaghan fit the bill perfectly. We asked her in July if she would be interested. We had planned to have the blog up by August 1, but the programming took a little longer than we had hoped. In the meantime, those three large orders were completed. We felt, even though the large orders were gone, that a blog would still be a useful tool for our writers and decided to start it independent of our current order situation.

Without the massive orders, we had a higher average number of orders per day in August than we did in July. We have work coming in every hour, just not the massive orders we saw hit all at once. We are in touch with those clients, who have indicated they were pleased with our service and will be ordering more in the future. We are also actively recruiting new clients and have several interesting projects on the horizon.

So what’s happening to all the orders? We do have more writers registered with us; we reached 23,000 registered authors this month. Some of our writers have been energized by the large amount of work we had earlier in the month and others have been inspired by this blog. Since you all are doing such a wonderful job, we want to make sure that you continue to have work. We are placing all incoming writer applicants on a waiting list. Applicants can still register and submit a writing sample, but will not be allowed to access orders until we need them. Current writers will continue to use the system as normal.

To sum up, we started this blog to help you become better writers and use our system more effectively. Our base is solid, our business is growing and we are working with new and existing clients to give you fun and interesting orders to write.
