How to order content

Start a new order by clicking "New".

Select the language of your order (Note: if you need content in multiple languages, make separate orders for each language).

Add instructions for the writer:

Mandatory fields

H1
Write H1 for the content. This is a title the writers will see, so make sure it's descriptive enough for writers to understand at a quick glance what the task is about. H1 could be, for example, "What are the best dog breeds for families" or "Product description about dog food".

Words
Type the word count for the article. It should be set somewhere between 50-5000, and we will deliver maximum +10%.

Meta title and Meta description
Select this option if you need a meta title and meta description for your article.

Instructions for the writer
Type here instructions for the writer to complete your request. Remember, the writer is going to write exactly what you ask in here. The more details you give, the better outcome you will receive.

You are free to give as much information as needed, for example:

Let the writer know about the purpose of the content (blog post to get more traffic with long-tail keywords? Casino review attract more players? Description of a product to improve conversion rates?)
Give links to examples, documents with more information, link to site where text is published etc.

You may highlight part of text with bold or underline, or structure instructions with bullet point lists for better understanding.

Take a look at our ready-made instruction examples you can use.
Read general guidelines for writing good instructions.

Content template
Select the structure for the content article. You can select one of the templates available in the library, or create your own.
The template determines the layout of the finalised text. You have full control over the structure – the writer is not able to change it.

You can decide:
The amount of sub-headings and paragraphs in the article
The word count of each paragraph
Placement of keywords and links within the structure

Context

Tone of voice
Tell the writer what kind of tone they should use in the text; it will determine HOW the writer should convey the information. For example, if the request is for a personal blog, you might want to instruct the writer to write in 1st person.

Other tone of voice examples:

Informal or formal
Objective or subjective
Selling/engaging or neutral
Positive, negative or neutral
Informative

Source URL
If you already have a source of information or a site you want to direct the writer’s attention, insert the URL here.

Site it will be published on
Insert he link of the page where your text will be published; it will be useful for the writer to have access to this, so they can mimic the existing style and tone.

SEO and Links

Focus keyword
Insert the focus keyword or phrase for the content article. There can be only one focus keyword per content article, and the keyword should not include any special characters.

Sub keywords
Insert the sub keywords for the content article. You can type in all the sub keywords one by one, or use the "Paste many" option to paste multiple keywords at once.

You can select "Exact" or "Near" match for each keyword. When a near match is selected, a writer can add one additional word between the words you have inserted. For example, a near match for a keyword “best dog breeds” could be “best hunting dog breeds”.

Links
Add external or internal links which writer needs to insert to the text. Click "Add link" and insert the URL and anchor text for the link. If you want multiple links to the text, repeat the same as many times as needed.

Remember that writer is not able to change the URLs or anchor texts you have provided, so don't add an anchor text like "best dog breeds (translate this to German)".

Then you’re all set! After you have placed your order, you will be redirected to a confirmation screen where you can see your Order ID, and you will receive a confirmation email.

You can track the status of all your orders on your Dashboard.
