How to Find (and Retain) a Quality Author

“Quality is never an accident. It is the result of intelligent effort.”

John Ruskin
In case you were unaware of the fact, quality writers do not grow on trees. Encountering a professional and steadfast Textbroker author is the best way to ensure that you will be provided with high-class content within an amenable time frame. So, what are some steps that you can take in order to come across the right man (or woman) for the job?

Be Clear from the Beginning

Muddled order details are nearly certain to cause problems along the way. Try to be as clear and concise as possible when submitting a request to the author. Statements such as “I want a good article” are not nearly as helpful as “Please write the article from a third-person perspective and insert two hyperlinks within the text”. While Textbroker authors may sometimes appear as if they can pull off sudden miracles, the fact of the matter is that they are not necessarily mind readers.

Provide Reasonable Time Frames

One sure-fire way to lose a quality author is to provide unreasonable time frames. Of course, this will partially depend upon the length of the piece as well as its content. Try to appreciate the perspective of the writer. Good authors tend to be working on multiple projects simultaneously, so demanding that an article must be completed in less than 12 hours is (normally) considered rather difficult. Never forget that a writer with a significant number of steady clients could very well deny the order in favour of other requests that are more realistic.

View Their Public Textbroker Writing Profile

Another great way to gain further insight is to take a look at the public Textbroker profile of the author in question. How many texts have been completed? What is their Direct Order price and have they received any rejections in the past? Take a look at their skill sets as well as their relevant writing samples. All of these will offer a unique glimpse into what you can expect as the end result.

Teaming up with a quality Textbroker writer will begin to foster a mutually beneficial relationship. Author loyalty is a premise for such a relationship. You can rest assured that all texts will be completed within a timely fashion and in turn, the writer will enjoy another source of income as well as a rewarding professional correspondence.
