To get promoted to higher paying writer levels, you must demonstrate that you are a talented writer. Below is the criteria for each promotion:
All writers start at the standard writer level.
After a Standard writer has written 25 (or more) articles and receives 25 reviews and maintained a 4.1 to 4.5 star rating, then he/she will be promoted to Premium writer status.
A Premium writer gets promoted to Elite writer status if he/she writes 30 (or more) articles and receives 30 reviews and maintains a 4.6 or higher star rating.
An Elite Writer moves up to Elite Plus writer status if he/she writes 40 (or more articles) and receives 40 reviews and maintains a 4.86 or higher star rating.
You may also choose to bypass all of the article writing and get promoted instantly by going through the iWriter Fast Track Program which you can learn about here:
