You’ve hired content writers; I’m sure of it, and you’ve always wanted to punch them in the face. Why? Even after emptying your pockets, which you happily did, you didn’t get content at the time you wished, with the quality you hoped for, right?
Well, that’s about to change and has changed for many who migrated to using iWriter for their writing tasks. How can this suddenly be so easy?
Well because on iWriter you just don’t get any tom-dick-harry working for you, instead you choose who will work on the piece, and what’s his skill level, and you need to pay according to his skills too , not just any amount he quotes.
The writers are ranked on talent basis so you can be sure you’ll only get those who’re worth it,
So, if iWriter is so efficient, what’s the point of me writing this article? Well, it is that iWriter is a gold mine, but you need to be able to choose and separate the gold from the coal right?
Not every writer on iWriter will be the best choice for you; he might be the best for someone else, but it’s not necessary that he would also fit your needs. Also, I’ve had a long experience with iWriter so it’s only fair to share out how you can get the best guys, at lowest prices in the shortest time span.
The point is the guys over iWriter do exactly as you tell them to do, so it’s your creativity, how well you can task them to get a job done. If you are a poor instructor, the results will be poor. You need to be able to give a clear picture, of what exactly you want, and don’t want and it’ll be delivered to you.
To make sure you don’t waste your time and money getting crappy articles, let’s first break down the iWriter categories, writers get ranked in these categories by their levels and talent.
- Standard writers: $7.50 per 1000 words
- Premium writers: $10.50 per 1000 words
- Elite writers: $18..50 per 1000 words
- Elite Plus writers: $55 per 1000 words
Now, these ranks on iWriter are not by time-frame or anything else; it’s purely on a talent basis. The standard ones are the cheapest, where you can easily get a 500 – 700 words article for $2 – 5$.
The excellent ones are the usual kind of writers who will cover a more detailed piece for a bit of higher amount.
While the Elites are your best option if you’re going for a 2-3000 words article, of course, they have a high rate, $40-50$ per article.
Also what makes iWriter unique is, you can even get articles for as low as $1.50 for 150 words. Yes that’s the starting limit, there are times when you need just a quick supplement to your article, and spending a fortune for that isn’t wise, so what do you do? iWriters this feature is sure to help you out right?
Now you can go for any of the above categories, but there always is one or other mistake you’re bound to make and lose a lot of money and quality in each category, so what I’ll do here is,
I’ll get you a clear picture on how you can get your job done with any of them.

- Is iwriter for you?
Why you won’t be disappointed:-
One of the basic needs you must have is your delivery time, right? To get the content exactly when you wish for it. On most other freelance sites, the delivery time’s not fixed, and even if it is, it is a long one. Instead, with iWriter, you can get your 300 words piece completed, in less then 3 hours. And if you’re going for more of a 1000 words kind article, give it 6 hours maximum.
So if you need something delivered, instantly, it’s an awesome choice.
The next aspect that fascinates me is the user interface. When you start out with iWriter, there’s an elaborate Tutorial to help you out to get started.
You don’t have to go on a writer-hunt as is needed with other services. Instead, you just post out your article request, and it gets done within a very short time frame, and then it’s delivered to you.
More then just article.
No, iWriter doesn’t get you just an article, it has the potential to get you much more than that, and at dirt low prices,
Well so see? You can get a full-fledged e-book written, by an elite writer for around 64$, that’s like super cheap for an e-book.
And not just that, if you’re not satisfied with your article, you can even get it re-written from some other writer, and you have the choice not to accept it till it totally satisfies you, so technically you pay only when you’ve got a smiling face reading the piece.
Basics of defining an Article Request:-
Just because they just signed up couple days ago, and are in the standard writer’s category, doesn’t necessarily mean they’re bad, or not good at what they do.
If you need a quick, short, article. These are your best bet. But because it’s a 700-1000 words article generally, there are lot’s of things your writer might miss, because covering 1000 words with bullshit isn’t that hard.
So how to get the best out of these writers? Okay, let’s look into what makes them write “not good enough” articles in the first place.
- Unclear Instructions: – You want an article on “Dr. Beats Headphones Reviews”. Now, there are a lot of ways a writer can go about writing this piece; it’s up to you to tell him to cover exactly what you’re looking for.
- Unclear Goals:- There’s a significant difference in the article according to it’s goals. For eg you need to be specific about what you’re trying to achieve with the piece. For eg. just letting people know about the features of Dr.Beats headphones will have a different approach, while trying to get people buy a Dr. Beats headphones will have an entirely different approach towards the article.
- What you don’t want: – Okay a lot of you guys are missing this, if you want a review on Dr. Beats headphones, it doesn’t mean you want to cover it’s quality or features only right? You might just be interested in its background and reputation, I mean it’s totally up to you what you want, and don’t. So always make sure you tell your writers what you “don’t” want them to cover.
Okay so enough with that,
Setting up an Article request on iWriter:-
Beforehand, I can promise you your request gets honored in less than 24hours because there are hundreds of writers out there, getting the quality you are seeking totally depends on your instructions and capability to setup the gig effectively, and that’s what I’ll be covering here.
In this section, I’d be including how you can get the best articles, at the lowest price from iWriter.
So, login to your iWriter account, then click on “Get a unique article written” option right from the dashboard.
Now, the next page is where you pitch your article request, so go for the “headline“, and make sure it’s a very strong and direct one.
Now, select your Wordlimit, and go for the “Basic” writers. ( Yes don’t worry, As I said I’d get you how you can pitch crystal clear instructions about the piece and get the highest quality content, without needing to spend $64/1000 words with the Elite Plus writers).
Now it’s the “keywords” section you need to cover up, it’s also the most important section around here while guiding your iWriters about the content, do this right and you’ll get a satisfactory piece even at $5/article, do this wrong and you wont be satisfied even with the Elite plus ones.
So make sure, you give them the exact Title you are targeting, keyword density you want and also the “LSI’s. ( You can refer to my last guide on LSI’s here ).
Because, as Chris from rankxl mentions, a lot of times the 1000 word, basic writers go hard on Keyword stuffing, which doesn’t only harm your article, it also makes it look dull.
Well the “keyword” section is a tricky one, it’s the section which charges you per line. Meaning, if you use 2 lines of this space, your price will go double up, so instead use this title to describe your title in a line. We will cover the keyword instructions later in the special instructions section.
Here’s an example:-
Get more for less:- The keyword section also has another purpose you can’t ignore. I said you’d be using it for titles, right? So technically what do you do if you need more then one articles? In that case, press enter and in a new line, enter the keywords of the next article, and continue for as many articles as you need. That enables you to bulk order 2-3-4 or any number of articles you want, from a single section.
Now, move on to the “article purpose”, this is what I was talking about some time ago. Keep it direct and honest, as I already said, a “sales pitching” article will be a lot different then any other wikipedia kind of knowledge based article.
Here’s a template you can use directly for your article purpose section:-
- Blog content about [Your Topic].
- Make sure these 4 points are present in the piece:
- Mildly Controversial
- Please list the most important items first, second, and last if you can.
- My hope is to have the articles go viral so please make certain that each article contains those elements.
- Don’t be afraid to take a stand against the ‘norm’ to create a bit of controversy, but keep it mild.
- The most important part of all of this is humor.
- I want the article to be amusing above all else – but articles that contain all four elements are certainly preferred.
- The amusement aspect of each article is what will most likely give it the viral push I hope to receive.
Now the final part of special instructions, everyone has different needs and choices right? So just highlight yours in this section. For eg. where you want them to add images, or if you want them to add images at all . Should they custom create the image or just take off from the internet etc.
What’s more:- Get them sources to take hints from, this increases their background knowledge and you get an article that you’ll like. And ask them to focus more on “users” then the search engines, because they don’t by default know your intents and ignoring this point might lead you to getting a keyword stuffed article nothing else.
And most important of all, use this section to define your keywords. Include your keywords in the section, and then move on to cover the special instructions.
For the keywords you can use a sample like:-
- Focus keyword
- Use LSI’s.
- Keep the keyword density 2-3 times / 1000 words.
And for the special instructions, here’s something you can use:-
- The importance of perfect English and grammar.
- The ability to write compelling and entertaining content.
- The ability to do research and find engaging topics I will deny content that does not meet any of the above standard
- This first article is a demo and if the writer does well they will be added to my favorite list and used regularly in the future
- Avoid using “Is/ Am/ Are” kind of keywords just for the sake of extending the article length.
- Use proper headings tags ( H1 / h2 ) wherever necessary.
- Write out in a natural tone.
- Use Bulleted lists atleast once
Standard Writers, but if you’re a bit heavy on the pocket, and desire for a more spectacular kind of content, you can get it delivered from the Premium and Elite writers, which might cost you anything from 10-50$/ article.
I’m guessing you’re no millionaire yet, so In this next section I’m covering up getting the best piece done from the Premium writers only, alright?
The premium ones cost somewhere in between 10-13$ per article so it isn’t a pain for you.
Okay so if you are going for 1500words+ articles, it’s better to go with the Premium writers, as they have more experience and can get you a better content for that length then the standard ones.
As I mentioned, for quick, short articles the standard ones are your best options, but for a more detailed kind of posts, the premium ones are better, and 10-12$ / article for 2000words+ isn’t really a bad deal.
Most of the things are same, but during creating the article request, make sure you select the “premium” button.
So that was about how to get awesome quality content out of iWriter, right? Now what if you could actually make some money off the article, like directly, without any “waiting for it to be ranked” kind of thing?
Making money with iWriter’s articles:-
How much does a 1K word article on iWriter cost you? $7?
One of the best ways is to get some easy money is, get to a freelance site, for eg. Fiverr.com Elance.com etc. and post a content writing gig, or apply for someone’s gig.
Here’s what you should take care of to get the deal done without a problem:-
- After getting the task, head over to iWriter and start an article request.
- make sure you list out the article details perfectly well.
- Submit the article request, and you should get it done in couple hours with iWriter’s amazing delivery service, you should get it in couple hours.
Now what’s the trick?
- While applying for the task on fiverr, elance or anywhere else, make sure you get paid good enough, 45-50$ for 2000 words, ( they easily pay that kind of amount over there for unique articles ).
- And while placing the article on iWriter, you’d be investing a total of around 15$ for 2000 words.
So, if you get a deal of 45$ for the 2K words, even then you’re making a clear profit of 25$ per article, doing absolutely nothing.
How about some calculations?
Say you take in 3 articles, of 2000words each a day, so you’ve to payout 45$ in total to your iWriters, but even at the lowest, you’re making 160$ / day. Delete the payout, it’s still around 80$ of profit, everyday, doing nothing ( except the copy paste work of course ).
Not only that, completing tasks on time and taking in lots of tasks will improve your rating on those sites, and you’d be eligible for better payouts and stuff like that, which is like awesome. So what’s the harm in trying?
Why iWriter Stands out:
- CopyScape:– It’s an awesome , quality feature. It makes sure that the article you’re getting isn’t directly copied from any other source. It’s great as it minimizes the risk of getting duplicate content, and wasting your money to absolute 0. On a lot of other sites like Elance of fiverr, there’s a chance of the article being copied a lot, which is eliminated with iWriter.
- Spinner Tags:- This is something else which made me fall in love with iWriter. If you’re paying 10-15$ for an article, or even $5, it’s your right to use that article as many times as you wish, right? Infact, guest-posting on related sites is an awesome tactic to build your brand, but you can’t. Cause then you’ve to again get an article written, right? Well not exactly, with iWriter each and every article you get is a spin-ready article, meaning you get a free txt file of the article along with your main article, which can be easily spinned and used as a guest post on any other site, more then once without the risk it being a “copied ” content.
- With iWriter, the best feature is you pay only when you’re satisfied. If not, then no money demanded. Meaning, if you didn’t like an article, you can reject it to send it back to the writer, or just send it to another writer. Not only that, you can send it to the same writer for edits, as many times as you wish, free of additional cost. Infact it has a lot more options then just accepting or rejecting pieces.
Okay this is something I saw for the first time with any company online, I mean it’s a totally new innovation on the part of iWriter. With iWriter, you can directly publish your post to your WordPress blog, without the need to download it, read it, and then copy paste to WordPress, only to loose the formatting and again spend hours clean-formatting it.
All you have to do is, get over to your completed articles section, and then you’ll have all the projects completed for you right?
So, on this screen, instead of clicking on download article option, just click on “Upload to WP blog”, and it’ll be directly published to your blog.
No hustle, see?
Okay remember the Bonus tip I was talking about in the initial paragraphs? This is it, first of all, iWriter has this awesome feature for you to create your favorite list, where you add only those writers whom you like, and would want to work with in future.
This list is a fast way to get your projects delivered to the best guys directly without getting any extra, non-professional requests.
Now how can you use this to get the best quality possible?
Well, during article requests, in the special instructions section, include something like:-
“This is a test phase, although you’d be paid for this article, but if your article really stands out, you’d be added to my favorite list, and would be eligible for a daily and long term project contract”.
Trust me, it works better then it sounds. Everyone likes long term contracts right? So including this short note makes sure that the writer gives his best to your piece, and it has more then one benefit for you. First you get an awesome quality content, and second you get a writer for the long term, so you wont have to go on a man-hunt every-time you get a new project.
So…Is iWriter for you?
If you’re a client, yes it definitely is, specially if you’re not looking to empty out your pockets on the content writing services. I mean, can it get any cheaper then 10-20$ for 2000 words posts?
And if you want really “high” and I mean “high” quality content written, you can pay a bit higher and you’ll get that delivered too.
With iWriter you don’t have to worry about waiting hours to get your piece done, you don’t have to take just about anything that they send you, and the best part? There’s no chance that you’ll get a copied content as the articles are run through copyscape, so isn’t that enough for a 7$ article?
And the auto-publication just takes a load off your shoulders, and infact if you’re not a blogger yourself, you can just outsource-and resell too right? In either case it’s a win-win for you.
So bottom line? Yes, iWriter is a cheap-high quality service, at dirt-cheap price with a lot of additional tools, and it’s worth it if it fits your needs.
