I'm just starting with Textbroker to kind of get my feet wet since I haven't written (much) in years. Any tips or advice for a (somewhat) newbie?

If you want to make any real money on there, double and triple check all punctuation and spelling. They are very anal there and many excellent writers have been downgraded into a lower category, due to small mistakes. They are frustrating in that way however, they always pay promptly, and it is one of the better content mills out there. Also, if you do have an article rejected, write them a note as to why it should not receive a lower rating. They do try to be responsive to their writers.

I signed up on Textbroker a few days ago and now I have to write my trial article. I was a little disappointed at first because the site recognized my location and it automatically switched to my native language (italian). I hoped to be able to write articles in english, since in most of the italian pay-to-write websites there are very few articles available, and I won't beable to write (and earn) as much as I'd like to. I'm giving it a try anyway, who knows, maybe Textbroker will be different.

I signed up with Textbroker a couple years ago and then never went forward with writing the article and getting accepted. Do you think this would hurt my chances of being accepted and writing for them? I stretched myself too thin looking for extra income and signed up with everything. Now that I'm more focused, there are just a couple sites I want to devote my time and energy to start with.

I have been with TextBroker since 2007. While the articles do not pay as high as some other content mills, they are very easy to do in my opinion. They usually have quite a bit of work to choose from and they always pay you every week as long as you have $10 worth of work approved and you request payment by Thursday night.

I have been writing for textbroker for years as well, and I am very happy with them. I believe that you should double/triple check your work anyway. Yes, they are picky, but in my opinion, you should be picky about your own work. I have been downgraded before and learned my lesson very fast. Always, always check!

Another way to make good money on this site is to start joining teams. Team orders often pay more, regardless of star status, and you also have more opportunities for work than if you did not join teams.

Further, once you get a good reputation, you should start getting direct orders. You can set your own direct order price. I used to have mine set at 2/cents a word, which I thought was pretty good for this kind of site. I recently upped it to 3/cents a word and didn't think I would get any orders, but I have! It just goes to show that there are people out there who are willing to pay well for good content.

I literally just asked in the general discussion for this exact thing.  I am trying to write more, build a small portfolio and maybe get paid at the same time, this seems like it might just be the ticket.  Are there any sites out there similar but more focused on writing copy? I would really like to build up a decent amount of sales/marketing material.

imosher, I had a pretty good gig writing mainly product descriptions (but some other articles) for a PPC company once. I literally went straight to the source and started blind emailing as many of the legitimate/trustworthy ones I could find and asking them if they were hiring writers. It's a shot in the dark, but you never know.

Another way is to look on forums/blogs that are specifically designed for helping writers find work.

A couple that spring to mind are :

--WOW - Women on Writing (but obviously that's geared towards females)
You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

--Funds For Writers
You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I have used both these sites to find places to submit work, enter contests, etc. They aren't specifically for marketing and sales writing, but writing in general.

Hope this helps.

Thanks GingerBelle, I'll check those links out.  I like Textbroker so far because it gives me some practice writing.  I haven't written anything in years, and even then I would have never considered myself a writer.  Textbroker offers an opportunity to work on my grammar and writing speed. 

I think my biggest complaint so far is the lack of work. I got rated as a 3-star author right off the bat and there is not a whole lot of work posted daily.  More than once I have found myself rare'n to go write and could not because there were not any articles.  Maybe looking elsewhere is a good solution, obviously direct to consumer would be better money wise.
