As a writer, you start off with iwriter as a Standard writer which is the lowest level of a writer in iwriter. Since you are just Starting out, you will be restricted to writing only basic articles until you upgrade to a higher level.
In order to upgrade to a premium writer, you are expected to write 30 articles and have a star rating of 4 or more. Alternatively, you can buy your way into becoming a premium writer by paying $197 and writing 3 articles on topics given to you.
• Horrible Requesters
Iwriter would have been great if the requesters were fair enough on writers. Requesters are often arrogant and can reject an article written by you for no reason. They can as well say just anything about you and the article you’ve written.
Some crazy reviews you are likely to come by in iwriter include;
“Thank you for your time, but I don’t like it”
“Keyword not found in article”
“I don’t like it, horrible writer”
“It did not flow”
This above is just a glimpse… You may find much more horrible reviews than this online.
Another con of working with iwriter is that, as a writer, you aren’t protected. The iwriter team if I’m not mistaken is more concerned with requesters and the money they make from writers. There’s absolutely nothing you can do about an unjust rejection/rating and your article is likely to be used by a requester after been rejected.
• Consequences of a bad writer rating in iwriter
The saddest part of these rejections is that, with every rejection and bad review, comes a chance of you being locked out of iwriter.
Here is why;
As a new writer, you are not expected to have a rating of less than 3.0 after 5 articles because you’ll get banned from writing articles.
The deadline for the submission if articles by writers is also a thing a concern. Imagine writing a 300 words article in 2hours. Trust me, too short for proper research.
I had my own fair share of iwriter’s ugly experience and I must say, that they really need to improve on how they treat their writers. I actually believe that they take advantage of their writers (there’s every possibility that I am wrong). But they should realize that the treatnent given to writers by requesters is absolutely uncalled for.
Iwriter is definitely not scam but I wouldn’t blame anyone who labels it as scam due to their unjust policy on writers.
I absolutely do not and will not recommend iwriter to anyone until they work on their policy and protect their writers as well. It’s basically a waste of time and I had to end my membership with them.
Definitely there are but sadly these websites might not be the best fit for a startup writer (iwriter was supposed to makeup for that).
