Okay back to my review, although now I’m thinking I need to review Subway or some place similar next week!
All joking aside, I have to say that I do love Quality Gal. The support this company offers is absolutely wonderful! Any time I have had a question a simple email to them gets replied to very quickly. Heather and Christine are the two I speak with the most and these women have been beyond fabulous! I have absolutely no complaints about the staff at Quality Gal.
I made frequent visits to this site because after the first visit I read that they pay 12 – 15 dollars per article. I instantly knew I wanted to be there! Unfortunately, every visit I made they were not looking for new writers. I kept going back though, and at that time all the resources they offer were available for anyone to read, and so I read it all. I would have never even known how to hyperlink if I had not visited this site and read the instructions. I did this long before I got on with them and that has been another one of my favorite things about this company. They offer a lot of writer’s resources, and when you’re new you have to love that!
Obviously the pay was the first thing that sold me on this company but they have been so much more. There is some paperwork to fill out in the beginning and if memory serves me right, there may be a sample article to do before actually being accepted as a writer. Still, there is no resume’ needed which is a big thing for a lot of new writers. Every writer starts out on a 30-day probationary status but as soon as you get accepted you can start writing. Articles pay anywhere between 12 and 15 dollars and depending on the links involved they could pay more or less. I did a couple for $5 and one for $35. Yep! Good money for a newbie!
When You Get That Moolah
The instructions for each article are included and they are very thorough. They also must be followed in order for the article to be accepted. This is true for any content company. As long as your work has met the specifications and they have been accepted you can submit your invoice. There is no minimum amount that must be met before you get paid. As long as the invoice is submitted on Thursday’s by 3 p.m. EST; money is in that PayPal account Friday morning. It never fails. Even better, you are not submitting your own invoices! Instead of worrying about creating your own invoices you just click on your account, click submit invoice and it’s done!
There has to be a downside right? Well, in a way there is. Quality Gal has certain styles that the articles must be written in. They provide all the instructions so it isn’t all that bad. The thing that can be very time-consuming is finding 20 + “authoritative” links to hyperlink into the article. If this or anything else isn’t done correctly you will be required to do a rewrite. On the plus side you are given plenty of time to fix the article. I will say that once you get the hang of things everything can be smooth sailing (a Christopher Cross song is now coming to mind).
Yes, I do love my music!
Okay so I do have one last word on Quality GAl. They do have periods where there is no work available. When work is available you should not take on more than you can handle! If you do and you have to turn it back in, and continue to do this, you will be put right back on probationary status and only allowed to take on a minimal amount of work.
I absolutely think if you can get on with Quality Gal do so. They offer great resources for their writers and if you have a question they are right on it. Yes, even on the weekends! And don’t forget that the pay with them is pretty damn good for a new writer.
If you have worked with Quality Gal, good or bad experience, please share with us!
