A Review of Iwriter

Updated on February 24, 2013

Iwriter Review

Iwriter is a popular content mill that pays writers for content. Writers don’t have to bid on assignments and they can choose anything they want.. The pay is somewhat lower than other sites and private clients would pay. However, it is a good way for beginners to get noticed. When I first started at Iwriter , I was a bit skeptical. There is no requirement to send a writing sample or fill out an application. You just sign up and start writing. I thought what site doesn’t require a writing sample to make certain you have a grasp of English. This means anyone can write for them. decided to give them a try anyway since I needed money. I have found there are pros and cons of writing for Iwriter just like any other site.

PROS

. You don’t have to go through a test period. Other content mills will put you trough a test period to give you a ranking. This means you must wait several days. At Iwriter, everyone starts at the same level.

. You can work your way up the levels. Iwriter has 3 levels: Basic, Premium, and Elite The pay increases each level. For example, a Basic writer makes $1.62 for 300 words. A premium writer can make $3.20 and Elite $6.00 for 300 words. You start out basic and need 30 ratings before you are promoted to premium.

. There’s always work. One thing I noticed about Iwriter is they always have work. Of course, they have slow times, but that is true of other sites. It usually happens around holiday times and weekends. They also have thousands of writers which explains why it looks like less work at times.

. You can get paid 4 times a month. Iwriter has 4 pay periods. Other content mills only pay bi-weekly or monthly. At Iwriter, you can be paid every Tuesday, every other Wednesday, on the 5th of each month, or on the 25th of each month. This gives the writer a chance to build up earnings.

CONS

. Iwriter doesn’t have a writer’s forum. A forum would be useful so writers can get advice and help with issues.

. One of my pet peeves of this site is requesters can reject your work for any reason. If they don’t like a certain word, they can reject your work. If they simply don’t like it, they can reject your work. In the past, a writer had no recourse, now, a requester can ask for a revision quest. You can send support ticket if you think a request is unfair. I have used support and they raised my rating. It may not work all the time, but it is worth a try.

.You only have a few hours t write the articles. I don’t consider this a negative, but rather an inconvenience. Some writers need more time. A 500-word article has to be written in three hours. Iwriter boasts fast turn around time, but this causes articles to be written fast.

. Another thing I noticed at Iwriter is too many requesters with low approval ratings. You are already getting paid peanuts for articles and they expect the moon.

In spite of the shortcomings, Iwriter has improved since I started. There are some benefits writing for them. You can succeed if you stay away from requesters with low approval ratings and follow instructions. You can contact the requester with nay questions. They do pay and the articles get approved quickly. I am staying for the time being. I don’t mind the extra money and it is another egg in the basket.
