Review of - Can you make money with textbroker?

Updated on February 17, 2013

In this hub, I would like to take a look on I have been a member of textbroker for some time and I would like to share my experience with you.
First of all, textbroker is NO scam! The registration is for free and you can earn money on this site by writing articles for other persons or companies. Depending what level you have (ranges from level 2 to 5) you can earn different amounts of money.

Positive aspects

Textbroker guarantees instant money making (you do not have to have a Google AdSense account or anything else). When you take an assignment and do it in time, you will be given the money as soon as the client has paid your article. You have to do good articles or otherwise they will be rejected and you have to rewrite it. The payment can only be paid out when you have reached 10€, what is no problem.
The other positive part is that on you have as level 3 and 4 an extremely huge amount of article in many different categories. From my own experience, I can tell that on a normal day there are about 4000 possible assignments and of those 4000 900 will be level 3 and 2900 level 4, but this can vary for sure. Please note that I am talking of not On there are hardly any and it is not worth even wasting your time to sign up just in case there will maybe be one assignment one day. There is also an American version of it, but I have no access to it, since you have to live in America in order to be able to sign up.

-Instant money making (payment possible after 10€ and more)
-enough assignments to be kept busy the whole day

Negative aspects

One negative part is that you have no rights of your text. You are a “ghostwriter” and writing for other people.
Let’s say you are a level 4 writer (in level 5 there are hardly any assignments) then your maximal income will be between 3€ and 6€. Let’s say you are this good and can write 1000 words in one hour than your income will be about 6€ per hour. Realizing this fact, it isn’t really worth doing it for too long.
One personal negative point is (but don’t have to be for other persons) is that I felt after some time very uncreative. Normally, you have a clearly defined assignment (or not…), what the client wants to have in his text, how many words in total, what keywords etc. And after some time it was always the same for me, gathering information briefly then writing a text and I had the feeling that my brain was rotting, because of the monotonicity.
Another thing is the level you have. Supposing your writing level is 3. You can get a better level if your texts prove to be of very high quality (level 4). They always take the average of your last 5 articles. They state it takes them about a week to grade them. Well, in my case, they were very very lazy. I wrote a lot of texts. And even after a month. Not one single one has been graded. I only have 3 graded texts. One was my sample writing and the other two were the first ones I wrote (which actually surprised me, because it only took them a few days to grade both).

-no right of your written content
-very low income per hour
-(personal) monotonicity made me uncreative for a certain period of time
-unique payment per text submitted
- extremely slow in grading texts (or at least in my case)


Is now really worth doing it? No, if you ask me. The payment is a joke if you want to get rich. You are not even able to live from it if you were playing with the thought to make if a full time income. If you are a student and want some second income or broke and desperately in a need of money then you may go for it. But speaking frankly, if you consider that a 400 words long text only gives you about 3.50€ (at level 3) I think, you are better off joining a site like HubPages or Squidoo and submitting your text there. Your text will generate money all the time on those pages and not only just for one single unique time on Plus you are the author of your content!
