As of September 2019, the Scripted platform supports a feature called "Instant Start" that speeds up the content delivery process for customers and writers - that means writers get paid faster and customers get quality content faster.
Instant Start jobs are defined by customers during the project creation step. Our platform asks customers to define, in addition to a great content brief, some basic acceptance criteria. This criterion includes:
- Target Word Count (Flexible word count is not permitted)
- First Draft Due Date
- Writer Eligibility Requirements
Instant Start jobs are available to qualified writers on a first-come, first-served basis based on the Writer Eligibility Requirements defined by the customer.
If a qualified writer sees an Instant Start job, agrees to the terms, and starts the job two things happen: 1) no other writers can instantly start a job for that project and 2) the writer can begin writing immediately.
While writers are able to negotiate the price when submitting Job Proposals to projects, the prices for Instant Start jobs are non-negotiable.
