Dear Editor75,

I believed no one would have responded this question after WB's comments, and am shocked to have seen it turn into such a slug match.

Thanks for the help. It appears this industry is shambolic and has a lot of room for improvement, especially when money can be made from it.

I already have all my answers to 85% of my questions. It appears most of these companies can afford to pay their writers more and offer essays cheaper - but they are happy with their high profit margins. Furthermore, most of their terms & conditions leave them exposed in more ways than one. It would be great to see how many small court cases they fight, if consumers knew their rights.

I have one question, and hopefully I can rub WB the wrong way. Let him flame all he wants, it is music to my ears.

Do you, or anyone else for that matter know what project management tools or systems these companies use to post their jobs for freelancers to complete? A heads up would be nice, and if a copy of any companies freelance contract can be obtained that would be brilliant.

Kind regards,


Evorus

the customers in this industry are dumb as rocks, and a lot of the companies are run by mobbed-up scumbags (who are also dumb as rocks). a lot of their contracts are about getting the customer to think that the company doesn't have him/her by the short hairs. once the customers take the step of purchasing a "research guide," it becomes a very slippery slope for them.

it varies. you can tell which online sites are run by whom, because they tend to use the same interface. if you want a sample contract, try applying to a few places.

Dear Editor,

Thanks, yeah the contract acquisition isn't a problem. I can often tell which website belongs to who, but do you know how they relay the jobs to writers at the back end. I am aware that TORG use something called the exchange, which allows freelancers to bid for projects. I think the majority seem to have a bidding system, but I can't locate anything.

Regards,

it depends on the company-- most have evolved their own back-end systems, or use the same system across multiple affiliates. a lot of companies have systems that are hierarchical and based on bidding.

I really appreciate this, and finally I have one last question, although in hindsight it might appear silly.

Is the price bidding system based on the company just selecting a winner from a pool of bidders wanting to do the job; OR

Do the freelancers literally bid (with lower competitive prices) to win the project; OR

A combination of both.

Regards,

Evorus

it's a combination. at times, the customer is also involved in the bidding process. say someone wants a 2 page paper for tomorrow-- they place an order, and the company puts out a $30 order. no one takes it, because the pay's too low. in some systems, writers can actually bid this order up, rather than down, in price.

The market is huge for such companies and while selecting a writer, the company needs to be also careful otherwise they will have unsatisfied customers in return.

Editor75 I have seen that criticize WB a lot however, I have yet to see the proof.

WB is a psychotic imbecile and if you haven't figured out that, you better book a shrink for check up. each and every post from it leaks with schizophrenic rage and hallucinatory invectives brought about by bouts of delusory self-aggrandizements.
Editor75 has nothing to prove.

Queen sheba is the only psycho in these parts. She's a bleached blonde criminal from Australia who has been banned from this forum at least 18 times. She is completely incapable of reasoned thought, let alone debate. I have squashed her false claims with evidence and facts so many times that I no longer bother. The bi*ch is just flat out nuts.
Never trust any member's claims at face value. Demand evidence that you can verify.
