Website Offers Contests For Content

BOWLING GREEN, KY Matt Robison was familiar with the freelance writing scene on the internet. After growing frustrated at the difficulty of gaining quality leads, he began networking and discovered that this was a more widespread problem than he initially realized.

"I spoke to some friends and they saw the same thing, that it was really hard to find solid leads, even online where the possibilities are supposedly endless," Robison said. "A lot of sites look good at first but then only provide low residual pay from ad revenue, or require too much of a time investment to make publishing worthwhile, or just have a scheme that is too complicated."

Robison recognized a need for a website that was user-friendly, had attractive payouts, and appealed to both contributors and publishers alike. "I thought, why is it so challenging to connect contributors with people who need content? Can we make it easy?"

To that end, Robison created, a clean-cut site where free membership garners the opportunity to participate in "writing contests": Assignments launched by people or organizations seeking specific content. They list the type of piece needed, the specification, and the prize amount, then a week later select the best work from the submissions to award the payment.

In these arduous economic times, CrowdedText is in prime position to compete for valuable traffic, from both freelance writers and organizations alike.
