TextMaster – Get Access to Professional-Level Writing

Writing isn’t your thing, and that’s OK. The good news is there are plenty of copywriting and proofreading professionals willing to put together content for your website, blog, brochure, or press release for a fee. TextMaster is a tool that helps you find these professionals, connecting small to mid-size enterprises with qualified authors who are willing to work on an a la carte basis.

Get help writing copy for your new website — or translating your current website copy into a new language — by signing up for TextMaster. The web-application will give you access to more than 51,000 professionals who have experience writing simple texts, press releases, documents, booklets, databases, lists, newsletters, and product pages. Choose your “credit bundle” depending on the size of your project and the type of professional you need (more experienced writers charge higher fees), then create your first project inside the TextMaster platform. When the writer you’ve selected is done with your job, you’ll be able to download the text you paid for in a number of different formats.

TextMaster also serves as a tool for freelance writers, editors, copywriters, bloggers, and teachers who are looking for a secondary source of income. Writers can earn up to $0.126 per word. TextMaster automatically matches tasks based on an author’s profile, eliminating the need for writers to negotiate with clients. Experienced writers can choose to take whichever jobs they want, leaving more time-consuming projects for other professionals to take on.
