Demand Studios vs. Break Studios

Postby marsha » Wed Jul 28, 2010 11:35 pm

I really like Break Studios. They don't pay as much as Demand Studios but they are much easier to deal with and here is why: they have no pretensions. They know they are putting out cheap content on silly topics with a greater focus on SEO than quality writing, and they're okay with that. I've gotten a couple of rewrites because something wasn't in line with the guidelines, but never just because a CE didn't like the items I put in a list, or wanted me to follow a non-existent guideline, or argued with the facts rather than reading my sources. The few times I've had to contact the help desk people have been incredibly helpful with fixing the errors, rather than finding some technicality to use to invalidate my question.

My point is that BS has proven so far that you can, at least on a small scale, set up an environment where expectations are clear, people aren't incredibly fucking picky, and writers feel welcome.

The problem is not that DS is a content farm. The problem is that DS spends so much of its effort trying to convince everyone else that it's not a content farm and that it produces high-quality content that they have no energy left to either 1) actually care about producing high-quality content (or even accurate content), or 2) fixing the problems the writers continually point out.

I have no more problems working for a content farm than I would working for McDonald's. Money is money; if you're going to look down your nose at me that's your issue. If Break Studios had more writeable titles I'd work for them all the time and ditch DS for a while, because it is just that refreshing to work with people who don't spend all their time trying to convince people that McDonald's is a four-star French restaurant.

How regularly does Break pay and is it all RevShare or piece work?

They pay $8/article and pay out every 2 weeks.

How long does it take you to write an article for BS?

I find it hard to find the motivation to write for them because the pay blows.

They are laid back, however. :)

I hear the articles only take about 20 minutes to write. I heard of someone who pumps out 4 BS articles per hour.

I wrote three articles when they first started up in March or so. Haven't been back. $8 and twice monthly pay? no thanks.

However, I did write all 3 within an hour. They were really easy.
