In my opinion, Skyword is a great window to the world that provides all the needs of a taxpayer for a task and aligns companies with writers who have the appropriate experience, also provides an excellent schedule structure that defines the time that I have to Work on a specific task once accepted, in turn you can access the notes, brief and auxiliary reports all in one location, instead of having to battle with multiple emails and downloads from other sources. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It would be extremely useful to see the historical versions of the copy you have uploaded instead of the last edited version. In some programs the rules are too prescriptive, that is, the statistics of established words do not vary much, they should also improve the capacity with mobile applications and devices Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

From our point of view Skyword is a platform for freelance writers to use it by everything: the summary, the deadline, the notes, the editions along the way among others, are in a practical location that is easily accessible; especially very suitable for companies that start or increase their content marketing initiative.

It greatly simplifies my workflow, for this reason I am really happy. You can also write about your experience in the industry while gaining greater global exposure that increases your brand and reputation. The platform also creates a uniqueness that expands its ability to share its content with other social media platforms. There are few content platforms that really stand out for offering good pay and good management, but Skyword is at the top. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The platform needs improvements that allow HTML and JavaScript encoding in a way that Wordpress handles. I also consider it important to detail that spelling and grammar should be included, as well as access to the plagiarism tool. It would improve the constant correction of users when there are errors of this type in writing; In addition to having no protection to its content. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a great platform for both freelance writers and companies looking to connect with the best in the business.

What do you dislike?

Editors area unit invariably happy to regulate schedules but, thus this has solely ever extremely tested to be a small annoyance instead of a retardant. generally finding new writing jobs is slow. But so far, that hasn't expose a considerable downside on behalf of me and that i are able to interpret the direction of the piece without having to try and do in depth edits or revisions. the sole alternative disadvantage isn't having the ability to use items in my portfolio, tho' I perceive the logic behind this from the clients' views.

It is a complex process to ensure content is relevant and business building, and requires time and support from key players (like the legal team).

I write articles and content creation for two companies that utilize Skyword. This simplifies my work flow tremendously! Both companies have different specs within the platform - so Skyword makes it so much easier to understand exactly what the brand is looking for. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Outages are hard to deal with when I am on a tight timeline. I do wish actual due dates showed instead of "in one month". Also it would be helpful to be able to see all of our submitted ideas over time. Currently we only can see the past 2 or 3 months worth of submitted ideas. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

As a content writer and copywriter, Skyword has given me the opportunity to write for significant companies like Google and Fidelity. As a bylined writer, I've been able to showcase my writing chops while getting substantial opportunities to have my work in the public eye. Many of the writing assignments have challenged my skills and kept me sharp, as well as better informed on a range of topics. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

As a freelance copywriter, Skyword solves my business problems by paying me for what I write. As mentioned, the assignments also take me into business areas and issues for which I didn't have deep knowledge—I'm more knowledgeable about a range of best business practices as a result of writing research and the writing itself.

Outstanding sounding board to get ideas and assistance publishing articles that attract readership. The editorial staff is one of the best I've worked with as they get back to you quickly with areas you need help creating great content. They also provide a means to find other opportunities that match your experience with organizations that use Skyword for their content. You can write about your industry experience while getting increased global exposure increasing your brand and reputation. The platform also creates a uniqueness that expands your ability to share your content to other social media platforms. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Dependency on client approvals may take more time, can be slow. Also the platform needs improvement allowing HTML and JavaScript coding in a way Wordpress handles these. The spelling and grammar as well as access to the plagiarism tool should also be included. This would eliminate delays where the editors return content back to the authors to correct their writings. It is a big time saver and it also alleviates the work the editors do returning the work back to the authors under tight publication schedules. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For the aspiring writers of content this is a platform that is remarkable where many clients go to find the talent for their content and marketing purposes. Industry thought leaders will find a readership audience in their niche to provide the content they need. Also, freelancing independent consultants with many years of expertise will find giving back and contributing their knowledge and know how of immense value to their followers.

Skyword provides an opportunity to have consistent work with brand recognition and for a freelancer, knowing that you can count on regular income each month is really nice. The editorial teams are great to work with and Skyword pays very market-competitive prices for content. I've loved working with Skyword so much over the past several years that I've referred them to several other freelancers. There are few content platforms that really stand out as offering good pay and good management, but Skyword is at the top. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, no complaints. I work on three different technology partner programs with Skyword and while each is structured slightly different, I've found the Skyword teams to all be highly professional to work with. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Skyword has provided me with an opportunity to contribute content for Fortune 500 companies under my own byline. Since I began writing with Skyword (over two years now!) I've seen a noticeable increase in my own visibility on social media sites where my Skyword content is posted. I truly believe writing for Skyword has enabled me to land more and better clients for my freelancing business due to this increased visibility of writing for high-profile companies.

Skyword's willingness to go the distance to learn the business. Our company is in health care so it's complicated, highly regulated and full of smart people with many advance degrees who aren't always the most patient creatures in the world. The are undaunted, undeterred and take feedback in stride and with a smile, even when they're blamed for something that results from the failings of our company and its culture. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The technology can be a little slow. I also think they could be a little more proactive in explaining not only their tech and methods, but also the philosophical drivers of the success their other clients have received. For their work to have the greatest impact, they need a hero on the inside. Or really, multiple. They would do themselves and their clients a favor making that clear from jump street. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're looking for this kind of company, I think you'll be pleased with the care and attention Skyword takes from making sure they understand your company's direction and goals to demonstrating where they can help. Their eager to help. They will stay eager even after you sign the SOW. Simply, they're a good partner. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What I like most about Skyword are the editors and acccount executives I work with. Almost without exception, they are friendly, responsive and flexilble. They understand the needs and challenges of freelance contributors like myself and can be relied upon to assist with any issues that arise. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are minor issues with the Skyword contributor dashboard. The spellcheck function is erratic (doesn’t always recognize names of clients), there appears to be no way to save “comments to reviewers” at bottom. Word count is faulty (shows that written article is ‘over’ the limit when the actual word count is less than the limit.) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love working on the Skyword platform for a variety of reasons, one being the diversity of clients so I don't get into writer's burnout. The company makes great effort to match a writer with their clients' needs. Since my background is basically in education, parenting, lifestyle, and medical -- the content managers have placed me into companies in my niche areas. Each staff member works diligently with the writer to attain the best article or blog post for their client, and I have worked with many professional and friendly people for a number of years. I have learned and earned as Skyword has helped with my income needs as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is not too much to dislike with Skyword. The platform and guidelines are easy to learn and navigate. Sometimes finding new writing jobs is slow, so It's imperative to keep your portfolio (provided by Skyword) up to date to obtain new work as clients use the database to find writers. Skyword does everything in their power to help both the freelance content writers and business clients. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

As a freelancer, the straightforward nature of the Skyword system is very attractive. The editors and strategists are communicative and responsive, the topics on which I've written so far are interesting, and the pay is fair and prompt. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

On occasion, the assignments aren't very detailed, which leaves some question as to what the client expects from the piece. But so far, that hasn't posed a substantial problem for me and I have been able to interpret the direction of the piece without needing to do extensive edits or revisions. The only other drawback is not being able to use pieces in my portfolio, though I understand the logic behind this from the clients' perspectives. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The simplicity of writing. The platform makes it so easy to write. As a writer I've worked for many clients and Skywords platform is by far the best because it lays everything out for you.

The spelling and grammar section needs to be fixed. It never works properly. I would like to be able to add different fonts as well. In addition to that, I would like to see the analytic section be a little restructured, as well as the ability to see your history when writing within the platform. I would also like to see more tips and suggestions within the help section. Other than that I think all of the features are A+. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Skyword is an amazing company with an A+ team. The Skyword platform is easy to use and has amazing features that helps you get your work done efficiently.

I enjoy the fact that Skyword creates the marketing campaign in totality, so that I can get down to work. However, the option to pitch ideas to clients is a nice perk. Skyword's content creation and submission has helped me strengthen my SEO writing skills, which is priceless. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There tends to be a lack of communication when programs stall or falter, and it would be nice to be included in the loop, or at least given a timely heads-up that the client won't be offering work for a period of time, or is ending their program altogether. There also seems to be a lot of turnover internally; I've had Editorial Managers leave in the middle of campaigns three times, in the three years I've worked with Skyword. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've been able to branch out into different types of writing, and been challenged to expand the breadth of my topic area. In a sense, writing for Skyword is like continuing education for writers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It's intuitive enough that you don't really need any training to use it. I love the assessment feature that helps me make sure I have the right # of words, keywords, grammar, etc. before I publish the content. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I've encountered a couple of problems using the tool. Luckily I've been able to find some workarounds. If I want a few images included in my blog content, it's more difficult than it needs to be to insert them into the text exactly where they need to go. Sometimes I can only attach one image, and other times it makes me crop an image for no apparent reason. I get around this by sending the content directly to the editors. I've also had issues where I hit "Save" and it makes me log back in, only to see that I've lost a lot of progress with what I wrote. This forces me to type my blog in a separate document, and then I run into formatting issues when trying to copy and paste the content over. I end up spending additional time reformatting before I can submit for review. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Generally, freelancers suffer because of follow-ups for payments but with Skyword payments are timely and don't require any follow-ups. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I appreciate the editorial team's responsiveness and willingness to secure solid, seasoned writers who can get the job done well, on time and on budget. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish payment were a little higher for some of the more photo and job-specific pieces- such as recipe development/testing and interviewing multiple subjects per piece. Other content platforms seem to consistently pay more. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
