    Hi there

    So I recently stumbled upon a website called textbroker.comThey pay you for writing articles and you get paid by the word.

    I recently saw a youtube vid where a guy explains that you can outsource the article writing to someone in let's say India for 9 dollars per hour. Then you get an article of let's say 700 words and you get paid 70 dollars for the article from textbroker.

    Has anyone tried this method?

    I want to give it a try but I live in Europe and textbroker only supports American writers. My second question is if there are websites that also allow Europeans for their article writings.

    Why don't you try searching some content writing tasks on freelancer ?? If you get good clients you can make some good amount of money .

    The writing gets graded into 2,3,4 star with 2 being lower quality and 4 higher. A non-native speaker will struggle making quality content above the lower gradings, which is cheap (around $0.02 per word). Not only that if the content doesn't cut it it will be rejected or sent back for reworking. You could be managing projects for negligible income and working with writers that disappear once they deliver and are paid.
