In this Textbroker writing sample video, I go over:
1. Pick Something Your Passionate About
Choosing a topic you know inside and out will make the sample easier to write. And since Textbroker gives you quite a bit of leeway in this example, the hardest part is picking your favorite. Just don’t overthink the process.
2. Try Not to Use the Same Words too Often
Using the same words too often can create a bit of an awkward read. Sometimes it’s unavoidable, such as writing a tutorial. But you should still try to use other relevant terms instead. Personally, I try not to use the same noun more than once inside of three consecutive sentences.
3. Never End a Sentence with “It”
While it might be sociably acceptable to end a sentence with “it” when talking to friends and family, you should refrain when creating your Textbroker writing sample. It’s a poor choice of words to end a sentence, and some clients may actually ask for a revision.
4. Never End a Sentence with a Preposition
Ending a sentence with a preposition isn’t necessarily a bad thing when being less formal. However, from a professional writer standpoint, you don’t want use a preposition to finish of a sentence. It simply looks out of place.
5. Never Use the Same Word to Start or End Two Consecutive Sentences
Using the same word to start or end two sentences or more in a row leads to an awkward layout. It creates issues when reading and has potential to cause confusion when a reader identifies the same word in the same location of conjoined sentences.
6. Watch the Comma Usage
Textbroker reviewers are big on tagging authors for comma usage. Learn how to add these to your writing sample by taking a few moments in Google. Learning all you can about AP style English and comma usage will save you quite a few headaches later on down the road.
7. Use Headers to Break up Paragraphs When Applicable
Add at least one header within your Textbroker writing sample. Because headers play such an important role in SEO and readability, reviewers want to make sure you know how to properly use them.
8. Try to Keep Your Sentences Below 20 Words Long
Refrain from writing sentences that are more than 20 words. This improves readability and can help you score well when there is less of a chance to screw up regarding grammar.
9. Try to Keep Paragraphs to Two to Three Sentences Long
You don’t want to create a wall of text as your writing sample. It reads poorly and can seem overwhelming to viewers, especially people who are reading the content from a smartphone.
10. Don’t Add Filler or Fluff
Don’t try to reach a specific word count by adding words and content that have no bearing on the topic. Every sentence of your Textbroker writing sample needs to support the subject matter. Using filler or fluff to expand the word count can even lead to a star demotion in Textbroker.
11. Keep the Flesch Reading Ease Score Above 60
Keeping the Flesch Reading Ease Score above 60 means the content is easier to read. It performs better in terms of search engine optimization, improves reader engagement and is far easier to write in most cases.
