What do you like best?
The platform is easy to use. Payments are prompt. The latest additions of direct messaging with clients, the ability to establish relationships with clients, and the marketplace for pitching ideas have been wonderful and made the writing process more enjoyable. It's a great addition to a freelance business, especially if you are just getting into it.
What do you dislike?
Pay is competitive, but not as high as I receive from some other work. However, the platform now lets you enter your own pay rates, so rates are getting even more competitive.
You don't always know where your articles end up unless the client shares them with you. So it's not guaranteed that you'll be able to use articles you submit as samples for your portfolio.
Recommendations to others considering the product
Pitches are your best chance to get assignments. Jobs that come up as available get taken up fast, and if you don't have a long history with a lot of reviews, you won't get first dibs on the jobs.
