Creating direct orders has never been easier than they will be within the new website. Direct Orders lets a client work with a specific writer(s) at a pre-negotiated price. This allows another means of acquiring consistent quality content at reasonable prices. The Content Authority has streamlined the process of client’s selecting writers. Previously, one needed to contact The Content Authority to arrange for writer selection on a specific topic. The new site allows the client to choose the writer(s) who have proven themselves through their quality, consistency and knowledge of their areas of interest. Clients can still access this area through the Direct Order and Manage Order Tabs.
The Content Authority is excited about all of the changes with the newly designed website. Each area has been designed with the clients and writers in mind. TCA believes these changes will positively affect the ordering process and the continued submission of quality written content. With these changes to the Direct Order area for both writers and clients, it becomes an excellent option for matching clients with writers.
New Writer Features
Each writer will be able to create a ruleset of information for clients who select them as a favorite writer. This will allow the writer to establish a positive relationship with a client.
Writers can establish several rulesets. For example, one can be set up for basic level orders, expert level or a ruleset for one particular client for which the writer can do specialized writing in the niche they target. That will enable writers to leave the rate and volume the same for a client and not have to change it when another client asks for something different from them. This will also allow writers to set a rewrite rate so clients can send articles to a favorite writer for high quality rewrites.
Ruleset information to be set up includes description, pricing, minimum and maximum word counts, publisher visibility and tags. Tags allow the writer to list areas of interest or expertise. Publisher Visibility area will let you decide which publishers can view that ruleset.
New Client Features
Clients will now be able to search for writers using tags, which will allow for quicker and better writer/client matches.
Now you will see your favorite writers with a ruleset created just for your needs eliminating the lag time while a writer adjusts their Direct Order information and the frustration of going back for more content from a favorite writer to find the writer has adjusted rates for another client and is now outside of your budget.
The new site offers the same management features of orders but with a sleek look and easy to use buttons. Clients will be able to manage articles based on labels, monitor orders from writers, and will be able to order rewrites from favorite writers by pasting existing material into the instruction box.
Direct Orders were created to enable clients to mark writers as their favorites, based on quality and knowledge of the topic. With the recent changes, this becomes a much easier process. For writers, Direct Order assignments are a great way to build a successful relationship with a client, or several clients. With the launch of the new website, TCA is building a simple and friendly writer interface and to providing the best customer service for our clients with an improved and enhanced Direct Order area.
