iWriter is touted as being the fastest, easiest, and most reliable way to get content created for your domain. The program gives you access to thousands of freelance writers in multiple time zones. This enables you to get fast access to writers to attend to your project/s.
You can create a “project” for an article or blog for your website and specific keywords and audience. Writers can also be contracted to do rewrites for you. You can also scale up and have ebooks or kindle books created. This is a great resource as ebooks can be time-consuming but they are great tools to either sell or giveaway for list building etc.
Selecting quality writers
Writing content is an art. You probably already know that. And here is content and there is excellent content. Depending on the needs of your website, you are able to select the quality of the writer that you engage. When you Order Content you have the option to select the level of writer, depending on their experience. Levels range from Standard to Elite Plus.
Obviously, you pay different prices for the different levels of experience. For example, an article of 500 words written by a ‘standard’ level writer, starts at $US3.30 for the article. From personal experience, the quality of writing will be low. Which, depending on what you are getting done, may be ok for your purpose. A simple translation of known specifications of a product, for instance, might just need a low-level writer to complete.
But if you are wanting a good clean article for your content site, you will probably be looking at the Elite or Elite Plus levels. These writers will generally provide you with an article at a professional level that will require little or no correction from you. Elite-level writers charge a minimum of $US11 for a 500-word article and an Elite Plus writer will charge you around $US39 plus or minus.
So you can see the obvious differences in cost and expected quality outcomes.
When you initially order content to be written, you can select a writer, or else your order goes out to the pool of writers. You can ‘save’ a writer If you have experienced them and they have worked out well for you. It is a great feature as once you find a good writer you will want to hold on to them. If you select a specific writer, they also receive a higher portion of the article cost. So they are more inclined to write well for you.
If your order goes out to the pool of writers at the level you have selected then you will receive contact from any writer who picks up your order.
You do not have to accept that writer or the article that they write for you. You have the ability to check out their profile and history. Plus you can reject an article or have it rewritten if it is not up to standard.
But be aware, as a content requestor, you do also get a rating from the writers. So if you reject everything, you will find the writers will just not bother with creating content for you. So it pays to be as specific as you can about your project and aim for the type of writer you need. This reduces all the hassles with resubmits and rejections.
I have found, for my content writing requirements, that I have had to state a requirement for the writer to have English as their first language. Without any racial bias intended, I just simply need correct colloquial English to be used. When you read an article you can tell instantly if a writer has a full grasp of the language.
I use an informal writing approach, so an understanding of slang and informal English suits my website style. I state this on my order, so I am being transparent and upfront. I have from time to time found myself re-writing articles so they make more sense. You want to avoid this.
Managing your orders
Once you have an order or a few orders in the system, they will get picked up by a writer or several writers. You can manage the project from the iWriter sign up front page. You can change details, select or reject writers, edit requirements, etc. Once the writer has finished an article they will submit it to you for review.
You can ask for changes, rewrites, reject totally, or select the article for payment. Once you have authorized payment you can download the article.
Generally, I’ll download an article and then add in my own SEO – internal and external links, change headings as I like, and ensure keywords are placed through the article. I will nearly always need to edit the article, but the time saving for me is big. I am not a fast writer, so sometimes getting a few articles created will ease my workload.
iWriter sign up options.
You can also sign up as a content creator yourself. I have gone through the iWriter sign up process as a Client and as a Writer. But I have not done any content at this stage for anyone as I have enough on my plate. But I know that writers can earn a good living from creating content for others. Especially once they hit the Elite Plus levels and have regular gigs.
I have used a couple of different writing programs – from Fiverr and Upwork to private writers. I have personally found the quality of iWriter to be much higher than Fiverr writers, but it will depend on who you attract to your projects. So be specific with your requirement for your article projects and hold remember to save any good writers you come across.

That’s a really interesting article. I did not realise that you can get someone to write an article for you! Out of interest, do certain writers have expertise in certain subjects? So, for instance, if I needed some help on a technical subject, would there be writers who have more expertise on technical matters? Also, how much information do you need to give them in order to write an article? I presume you still need to do all the research yourself, or do they also help with research of the topics on which they’re writing?
Thanks for your time!
HI Darryl some great questions there. You’ll find that some writers will have special interests and expertise. You can search through profiles to see what interests different writers have. But generally you can tell pretty fast if they know what they are talking about.
Its best if you do your own keyword research and give them keywords to work with. As for how much info you give them will depend on the complexity of the required article. The more info you can give the writer – regarding subject mater to cover, what not to cover, length of the article, topics you might want them to concentrate on etc – the better the outcome.
If you have information specific to your article topic that you can provide them, again, this will always help create a better article. But you can get them to do their own research… Id guess the more you are happy to pay the more information and quality you will get back.
I have never used or even heard of this program! I have used both Fiverr and upwork, but I honestly wasn’t that satisfied with the work I received. I even asked for a refund on the work I requested from Fiverr, it’s nice to know that there is a platform that rates the writers in advance and it doesn’t seem to cost a lot to use depending on the actual quality of work. Thank you for this review!
Hi Sydney. I have had similar experiences with Fiverr and Upwork, but also with iwriter. But you have the opportunity to get a project re done if you are not happy with it. To be honest, I have found that most articles that I have had written and accepted, I have had to edit before I can use them. But they have generally saved me a bit of time and sometimes they have some ideas that I had not thought of.
So I guess you get what you pay for … when I pick the cheaper writers I usually have to do more reworking. But it serves a purpose.
In my opinion, websites like iWriter is a good way to improve even if you are not a writer. I registered on HubPages where you can be taught how to write and improve your writing skills. It is not easy as it may look from the first sight.
Websites like iWriter can help a lot when creating content. I searched a lot of people on Fiverr and Upwork to write content for me but the more your content has to look high quality, the more it will cost. I saw that some professionals ask 20-30 USD per hour or even more. That means keeping and maintaining the budget is mandatory.
My question would be if I have to write a really professional article about something should I pay a lot for it and hire a professional straightaway or try somehow to create and edit for myself? The first thought that I should hire someone professional but on the other hand it is really pricey. And as long as my posts have to be SEO friendly can you suggest some good SEO specialists who are writers as well?
Thanks for introducing a good review and it will definitely serve for a good and high-quality content
Hi Tomas, thank you for your thoughts. I was corresponding with a leading online marketing guy a few months ago and he was paying $200 – $400 for ebook type productions. I have created a few of my own ebooks and I think they are as good as any that would be produced professionally, but they take me a long time to create.
But Id say, have a go yourself first… you can always hire someone to rewrite your content if you are not happy with it. But I have found that you get what you pay for.
It is true there are many writers on these freelance platforms that delivers lower than expected. The platform I will say allows such mediocrity. If they had been properly screened, they may have never been accepted in the first place.
However, if you need a good writer to help you with your content, you can message me. Considering bad experiences you have had in the past, I will write a requested sample for free to see the difference.
Thanks for the great analysis. I hope to always visit to read more great contents.
