The Best Writing Agency (Part Six)

Last Update: November 22, 2019

So, we now come to my favourite writing agency and the one I recommend above all others. Welcome to BoostContent.com! This agency is based in Sweden, but accepts writers from all over the world, even those who speak languages other than English. The application steps are the same as usual, spelling and grammar tests, followed by a 300 word article on a subject of their choosing. You will be pleased to know that the subject usually revolves around marketing, SEO strategies, blog writing etc. All subjects which you should know something about!

Hiring Now!

I will let you into a few secrets here! Not only am I a writer and proofreader for this agency, I actually do their writer evaluations! That means I know exactly how the process works, and as of today and yesterday, I have actually evaluated 100 applications, as they are hiring right now!

What Does It Take?

Out of curiosity, you may wish to know, I suggested 25 writers be approved immediately, with a further 15 accepted, on the understanding that aspects of their work be improved. I don't have the final say, that is up to the director but my opinion is valued. As you can see, only 40 applications accepted out of 100 is not a great many, but that is often due to some simple errors. Continue reading for my tips on being accepted!

Top Tips

So, it has to be seen that a writer reads the instructions in full, and not only understands them, but follows them to the letter. The process I am describing relates to those applying to be English writers, I presume it may be different for others. So, the first instruction is to write the article in English. You would be surprised as to how many don't do this. Now, the next thing to note, is that beside this instruction, there is a symbol of the American flag. Although it doesn't specify this exactly, it implies your article should be in American English, not Canadian, Australian or British. So, if you are not familiar with their spelling, I suggest you brush up on it.

The Topic

Next is the topic. Examples include "buy content for your website", "things to keep in mind before you hire a writer", "what makes an article SEO friendly" etc. Note carefully - these suggested topics can be used as the title, but it is better to show some imagination and create your own. And remember to capitalise it! Sometimes words are deliberately spelt wrong - don't follow the example! You now have to write between 300 and 345 words on the subject. Stick to the topic - don't pick something entirely different or irrelevant. Do not copy and paste anything. Use paragraphing, subheadings and bullet points - exactly as we are taught here at WA!

My Task

As an evaluator, I am presented with 2 samples at a time, Writer A and Writer B. I have to determine which one has the best spelling and grammar, and which one is more likely to be acceptable to a client. I have to find at least one error and highlight it. I can pick one over the other, reject both, or approve both. Of course, it is completely anonymous, I have no idea who has written them.

Have a Go!

If this has given you food for thought, then why not apply today? There is no harm in trying. Even if you get accepted, there is no obligation to do a certain amount of work, just as and when you feel like it. Good luck!

Thank you for sharing! I'm not a good writer. Sometimes I really running out of idea what to write. It can took me days to write a post. I have tried to post at least 2 content per month on my website but nowadays I really running out of ideas what to write. I don't know is It I have choose the wrong niche. Or can by engaging a writer to write a post they will also help to think of the topic to write? I have heard about getting writer to write a content for the website instead of writing ourselves but so far I have not tried yet. At which point of time do we need to engage a writer to help to write a post for us?

Hi - you can hire a writer at any time, but bear in mind it can be an expensive option, particularly, if you are not yet earning any income from your site. It can be around $50 just for one 1000 word post. Plus, it would really be up to you to provide the topic for the writer, and let them know your keywords.

Hi - for each post you write, you should research keywords using Jaaxy. You use one keyword per post, and include it in the title, once in the first paragraph, then maybe once or twice more in your post, if it looks natural.

Everything is easy to do until it has to be done perfectly then the negative or positive decision comes into it.

Everything we do and are happy with it makes it perfect until we decide to improve on it.
