I wrote an article last week about a new company called Media Piston that has partnered with oDesk to provide a new content solution. I’ve been using TextBroker for a while now and while I like the service, I’m always looking for better solutions. Today I placed an order for six different articles, three about Infrared Cameras and three about Credit Monitoring Services.
I have to say that I do like Media Piston’s interface a lot more than TextBroker’s. They have a much cleaner look-and-feel and some great options that make it easy to quickly put-in requests for specific types of articles. I am starting out with six 350 word articles, you can see what the submission process looks like below:
As you can see I simply specify the article topic or title and then provide any special instructions for the writer. I am very interested to see what Media Piston’s turn-around time is like and how the quality of the articles compare to TextBroker. Of course once I get these articles back I’ll do another post and let you know if the quality of the articles matches the quality of the site. A well-designed website is definitely important, but since I’m ordering content, it really is the content that matters at the end of the day.
More to come – stay-tuned!
