I used to be quite active at iwriter and then started focussing on direct clients. Recently I logged in and they have changed a number of things like :
1) There is an ad for a clickbank product that is related to content writers (Must be getting good conversion. This ad shows on the main page after logging in and every time an article is submitted by a writer.
2) They made a new system where one can get tests for becoming elite writer. Cost is $150.
The above changes will benefit Brad Callen (Owner of the site) but an important thing is that a number of writers have joined the site. About 1 lakh writers are present on the site and thus competition has increased too.
What is your opinion about these changes and how will it impact the users ?
