How to succeed in iwriter?

13 replies
I want to start making money by writing articles online. I tried iwriter and my account was banned because of low quality. I rewrote articles from Google, so my question is if this is considered a low quality article, where do I find content for my articles? What is actually plagiariasm, and how do I write an article on subject I don't know anything about?

Thank you

    Well.. write on topics you have knowledge on. If you choose something else, make sure you do your research.

    If you rewrote and got banned, it's probably because you didn't made enough changed to pass through copyscape and thus got banned due to plagiarism.

    iWriter isn't the best place to make money if you're on their first level. The payout is really small. You should start a Fiverr Gig about writing and outsource your orders to iWriter. On average, you'll get $4 from Fiverr per order ($1 goes to Fiverr) and you can have the article written for $2.62 if im not wrong.

    Cheers.

      yea..i am agreed with you regarding the way of writing at iwriter but making a fiverr gig and outsourcing it to iwriter is probably not the best idea as there are many people at fiverr doing it cheaper than that and also making your gig stand out is the biggest problem there nowadays unless you have a bunch of quick reviews to show up there..!! anyways good luck in your journey..i suggest you rather try revenue sharing sites like bubblews etc..or yahoo contributer or join constant content..!!

    Here's a trick to pass copyscape: rewrite every 3rd/4th word. But even if your article passes copyscape, the client may not accept it depending on his/her interests.

    The only way to succeed is to know exactly what your clients need, follow their instructions, manually research and write, and rewrite only when you think this possible. i.e. "write an article about what Payday Loan is."

    Now that would be an easy rewrite, which I've done before and clients are happy.

    Elite Status pays the most at $8.10 per article, but unless you got the requirements, it's impossible unless you purchased Fast Track for $147. But I doubt you would want to do that too.

    Regarding Fiverr. I wouldn't recommend it because its over saturated, which makes it impossible to get any writing job. You have to really promote yourself.

    If you can get to Elite, then finding a job on iWrite is easy. I would even settle for Premium, which earns more than Fiverr for a 500 words article.

    I dont think fiverr is saturated at all, I think there lots of money to be made if you do it right.

      Explain doing it right and apply it to writing jobs.

    Been there. It's tough.

    I would recommend that you write on something you are familiar with. Anything other than that will be a lot of work and a drag and certainly not worth your time and the amount you will earn. I would say, come up with a list of what you are good at, build a landing page, capture those emails and add more value to them through an email course and pitch products once in a while.

    I dabbled with iWriter after reading this freebie: Eve Goodnight : Write Your Own Check | Free eBook Download

    Made about $15 in 45 minutes, but then the articles dried up for people at beginner level.I think it requires patience to wait and write what you know you can write well before your level rises and you can work on the articles available at the higher levels.

    If you write good articles on iWriter, the buyer can also add you in his favorite's list. So the next time he needs an article written, he may choose to give his favorite writers priority to write. Also, iWriter has a messaging system in place, so use that to build a relationship with people looking for longterm writers. I get most of my articles written there itself.

    Plagiarism is copy-pasting other people's published work(online or offline) without getting their permission.

    First, iwriter banned you because of continuous poor quality. Alternatively, one client could have used the "spam" button which banned you automatically from the system. You still have a chance though, you can contact customer support "here" and ask them if they can pardon you, giving genuine reasons. Alternatively you can still create a new account and avoid the mistakes you did.

    Most people get banned from a platform because they do not know how to navigate around the site and lacks the obvious traditional knowledge of the platform. There are things that if you could have done as a newbie in iwriter that could guarantee you a life there:


    1. Some requesters will scam you in iwriter, especially if you are a newbie. They will rate you low, even if your job is wonderful to keep you writing for them cheap at the standard level. Some requesters will cancel your work even if it is an awesome piece. There is a lot you need to know, to learn how to identify the bad and the good requesters on any writing platform. For example in iwriter, you MUST ONLY pick jobs from requetsers that have approval rating of 80% and above (such requesters will not punish you for averagely good work, they will ask for revisions if your work is recommendable)

    2. Which tools did you use to check for grammar and plagiarism? Ginger software is free and does a recommendable job. You may also want to invest in copyscape for better results.

    3. How do you write something you do not know about? Research, research and research. Use the keywords and the title given to search for relevant topics on Google. DO NOT REWRITE ONE WEBSITE CONTENT FOR ANY REQUESTER and claim that you have done your research, that equates to spamming on any writing platform. I guess you cannot do that even if you got a client here in warrior. Write down your structure (title, intro, subtitles, conclusion) then do your draft. The basic part is to find the relevant topics from Google results and find out the most important things you can write about the given title. Write naturally, make meaning in all your sentences, and let everything flow. Be creative, write an article you enjoy reading yourself.

    The most important part is to always keep in touch with your requesters. They want to see that you are actually helpful, ask them questions if you have to. Respond to their questions when they ask for anything.

    OTHER IMPORTANT TIPS TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN IWRITER

    *Do not work on topics you do not understand, keep refreshing using the F5 key until you get the order you can do.
    *Follow this channel to keep quality on check:

    iii) manually proofread your work
    iv) use a software to proofread (copyscape)
    v) Manually proofread again
    (YOU WILL NEVER GO WRONG ON QUALITY, ONCE USED TO IT, YOU WILL BE GOOD)

    *Write a killer introduction, it will make your article approved or worst brought back for revision
    *There is plenty of work in iwriter, Kenya time 1pm to 5am, you may need to work odd hours depending on your location
    *LEARN HOW TO USE KEYWORDS

    It's time you get online and do your research about iwriter and other platforms you want to work for, you will thank yourself later.

    You will just have to keep writing. Sometimes a bad article might get accepted while a good one might get reject. It depends on the buyer too at times.

    So just keep writing

    Good luck

    That can be a tough platform with buyers trying to take advantage, have you tried o-desk or similar services?
