As at least half a geek, whose blog you’re currently reading, it will likely come as no surprise to you that I both enjoy writing and the internet. Naturally then, pairing the two to make some extra money from home was nearly inevitable.
I’ve worked with Elance, Guru and even Fiverr as a frelance copy writer. They all have their advantages and downsides. However, there’s a new game in town – GrabAWriter.
After spending some time in beta, they recently launched a really polished, bug free site. They’ve got a nice start on groups of talented writers and legitimate businesses already and seem posed to strike the market hard. I registered as a writer quickly, the process was fast and easy. More importantly, they asked interesting, relavant questions. More on that below.
I’m excited for this site. They’ve done a few things in a new way as well as combining some of the best things about the other sites into one. Notably, the following:
- Writers set their own rate as $ per words
- Writers set their turn around time in hours
- Writers set their maximum daily word output, so as to avoid getting overbooked
- Writers choose 5 niches of passion as well as 5 particular strong areas of writing (ie: articles, sales copy etc)
- Businesses can search by any of these
This has the potential to make a lot more pleasant and sucessful business relationships. I’m really looking forward to growing with this site. Just a heads up to you, my faithful readers, get in early!
