An abundance of easy work for subpar pay

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Textbroker has been the most consistent thing in my freelance writing career. Whenever work is slow elsewhere, I know that I can at least keep some cashflow going here. The pay is not what I'd like, but they do pay much faster than other platforms, which has been a lifesaver at times.

Good until they fire you for no reason

It's a good company to work for but they will fire you without warning. They did pay twice a week which was good. It can be hard to get answers to questions in a timely manner.

Fun place

Love it! It’s such a fun place to work! The clients are very friendly and the employees at TEXTBROKER are always willing to help! I recommend this job for anyone who would like to advance their careers!

Low pay, bad management, and no benefits

Probably the worst content mill out there. They treat their writers terribly, and the pay is a joke. Seriously, pick any other content mill to write for, if you must write for one.

No longer providing stable work to authors and too many rude editors.

What is the best part of working at the company?Getting paid regularly/weekly What is the most stressful part about working at the company?There's hardly any work to do anymore. I can't financially support myself anymore working here, and, even when I do find work to do with the company-led writing teams, there are tons of editors that send you constant negative feedback, essentially blocking you from getting paid for the work you put in.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?The editors are sometimes helpful, but, most of the time, they are quite rude and request extensive revisions for your work before it can be accepted.

decent source of low end copywriting

Depending on rating, can be hit or miss about finding good articles to write in topics you are comfortable dealing with. Pay per word pretty low so hard to get a decent payout.

Run For The Hills

Want to work for a content mill that does not give a darn about you? Want to get massively underpaid for your knowledge, work, and dedication? Want downward mobility? Want the editors to be rude and dismissive?If so, you should join Textbroker!You will work your butt off with zero training for a fraction of what other companies and clients will pay freelance writers. You will be given revisions with almost no explanation as to what needs to be revised.If you call Textbroker out for any of its many issues, you will get down-rated, possibly even kicked off of the platform entirely.Also, good luck actually getting any articles on there. The job board sure is looking barren these days. Perhaps they treat their clients as poorly as they do their writers.Do yourself a favor and don't work for them. Please, let them fail. Let them go under.




Absolutely everything.

Overall, whether or not working at the company is a good fit for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences. The pay rate can be relatively low, and there can be a lot of competition for higher-paying assignments. Additionally, there can be a lot of pressure to meet deadlines, which can be stressful for some writers.

Good place to building writing skills and earn extra money

There are usually many opportunities available. However, some very experienced and seasoned writers are still only rated at 4 star writers which means they get paid less. This isn't fair and works in the favor of Textbroker. This is a good place to earn extra money and build some writing skills. However, there are better platforms that will treat writers better.

Don’t do it

Not a lucrative long term position. Seek alternatives if you respect yourself and want decent pay. Unreliable, inconsistent, not worth it anymore, Job board is always empty

Editors are Rude and the Company is Slow to pay

I've written for Textbroker for years with few complaints. In the last few months, after complaining to a team lead about repetitive revisions (which I never had in the past writing on this team) and slower acceptance times, I was removed from my bread and butter team. My pay has been cut drastically, and the teams that I write for now still send articles back for multiple revisions with rude remarks. I'm afraid to reach out to anyone on staff regarding these remote editors for fear I'll be removed from the platform altogether. There's no need to work in a place where one feels scared they'll be released from work just because they ask questions and stand up for themselves.




poor pay, rude editors

Based on a beginner's review...

At the time that I started at Textbroker, I was a complete beginner. I think it is an excellent platform to start, but definitely isn't anywhere you'd want to stay and grow. The pay can be quite low and after COVID, there were limited assignments. I can't speak to what the platform is like now since I haven't been on there in a while.

Supremely convenient and easy to understand deadlines and cancelling work if you need to.

Super way to get started on a career regarding marketing, web-site building and content delivery for beginners. If you follow the algorithms and keep up on the tutorials you can promote to 4 or 5 star levels. If you get a bad review from a client you get "sent back" to 3 Star levels but you can and do still get paid when making very reasonable deadlines.


You are the boss of your work load. Period. Very nice and easy website to work with!


Maybe more incentives for high-content authors.

The pay is the biggest issue it’s not enough pay for the work you’re barely making minimum wage but because of how the job is structured is legal also

It was okay

It was okay overall. You can select articles whenever you have free time. Sometimes the topics were obscure. Would be nice if they had better topics that made more sense.

poor pay demanding tasks

Company does not pay well. Writers are expected to have a large knowledge base. If you want someone to know about plumbing then pay them a plumber's wage. You cannot claim credit for articles under your own name making it hard to build a writing portfolio.


work at home

Friendly workplace

A typical day is meeting in the morning about client needs, calling any client that may be scheduled for a call (regarding a variety of topics), and ensuring the deadlines are reasonable and met within the proper timeline. If a desk job is not your thing, do not apply at Textbroker.


Staff was fantastic, Lunch was provided on any company meeting day, Holiday exchanges and group events, Leniency during any emergency events, Definitely a chance for promotion


Office was closed, thanks Covid-19

Good independent job

Decent. Not much work. I like that I can set my own hours. There hasn’t been work in a long time though. That kind of sucks. Not as much as there used to be.
