I have a direct order price of $1.50....I thought this was per word but I was not paid per word?
Textbroker question...are the payouts established per word? If so why am I being paid a total amount for a direct order instead of per word? I am confused.
Maybe you should contact Textbroker about that. Also when bidding on a project, finalize total cost first before starting any job. I work with Elance and I only accept projects that are financially viable for me. I find people will want 100 articles and only want to pay $25, I don't find that financially rewarding. There is a guideline that many writers use and it's $2.50 for every 500 words and that is at the lower end of the scale.
The going rate per word is approx. $.05, maybe $0.10
Definitely take this question to textbroker, or re read the listing.
I agree that there are too many low ball bids out there for writing. I bid on projects for a respectable amount, sometimes willing to even go lower than my personal minimum if it is financially reasonable. The problem is too many writers are willing to sell their soul for $1 for a 500 word article. Unacceptable.
BTW... $.05 per word is a professional rate that is NOT found in content writing. At 5 cents per word you would be getting $25 for a 500 word article. I have been paid close to this for some projects, but not many people are willing to pay this if there are low ball bidders around.
As Cardisa says I too work on elance. I charge $5 -$10 per 500 word article depending on the topic. But obviously $1.5 per word as you mention is highly impossible
