Review of Content Gather Writing Website

Perhaps the worst experience I’ve had with a website of any type, my experience in trying to place articles on Content Gather really is far and away my worst customer service experience online.

If you read other reviews, you’ll see many that state that writers uploaded articles only to find their site blocked with an “Account Suspended” message.  I assumed that some people may have had a bad experience, but that the site should want new writers.

I’m already placing spec articles on two other sites, but decided to pull down some older articles listed on another site and place them on Content Gather to see if a different audience would find them of interest.

That was Sunday morning, this morning.  It’s now Sunday night and I just checked the site to find my account suspended without explanation.  This site is a trap and should be avoided at all cost if you’re a writer who wants to sell their work on article sites.  I suggest you use Constant-Content and Dot Writer.  They’re reputable and you will not be abused as I and many others have been by Content Gather.

**UPDATE:  The articles were uploaded to a different site this morning (Monday July 29), and all have been approved and are up for sale.**

Copywriting for Biggest Losers Event

I just finished a project for the “New Year, New You Retreat With The Biggest Losers” in Las Vegas, to be held in January 2011. Their site isn’t up yet, and I’ll update this blog with a link when it is. Copywriting is selling with words and images, and this is an interesting project. Unlike other copywriting projects with long term Web exposure, this one has a finite amount of time in which to generate registrations for the event.

Getting people to register to attend is the focus of the material, and I believe that this is going to be a really big event, with past season Biggest Losers and the show’s producers there. It should max out at the 5000 attendees they’ve limited the event to as well. I wrote Web page text, video scripts and order page material for this project.
