How to smash the postloop approval test and get the highest rating of all time. 7 inexcusable laws to crafting epic quality forum posts
Paid to post on forums job, is an incredible online earning opportunity available to global citizens via amazing platforms like postloop, theforumwheel, paidforumposting among others. However, a painful test stands in between.
Today I’m going to show you bit by bit how to crack the postloop approval test, and fetch a high rating (without breaking a sweat).
These are the exact steps I employed to assist 95% of my referrals past the 10 approval trial posts.
The outset error most users commit is half-registration; and who can blame them, postloop application process is twice that of an average site.
Stick to these 4 steps to complete your application successfully.
postloop application process for content writers
I took the instructions straight from the postloop FAQ page to ensure the message is as correct as possible; read at least 3 times before proceeding ahead.
“Before you are approved for writing at Postloop, you must first make 10 trial pos
ts at the postloop portal. The Postloop Portal is owned and operated by Postloop staff and is used as a place to verify writer quality before being admitted into Postloop. Postloop staff will review the posts that you have made and return with a decision within 24 hours. If your posts meet our quality expectations, you will be able to start participating at any of the websites listed at Postloop. If your posts do not meet our quality expectations, you may be able to reapply with another 10 posts if instructed by Postloop staff. If your posts fall far below the expectations at Postloop, you will not be able to reapply.”
“Below is how the application process works. You must follow every step in the exact order listed:
- Join postloop portal
- Subscribe to The Postloop Portal (this is different from joining!!!). You must subscribe.
- Make 10 posts at The Postloop Portal
- Wait up to 24 hours for approval. Postloop staff will review your posts made, and if they are of acceptable quality, your account will be approved to start subscribing to any of the sites at Postloop. You will be notified immediately via email and inside of your Postloop account once your posts have been reviewed.
If you post and then subscribe, your posts will not count. Only posts that you make after you subscribe will count.”

7 inexcusable laws to crafting epic quality forum posts
- must be grammatically correct
Ascertain your posts are grammatically correct by;
- Editing them on a word processor, just hit f7 for Microsoft word.
- Read the posts at the least, three times.
- Use an online proofreader/grammar checker like grammarly, paperrater or ginger; they offer both free and paid options. I am using grammarly; it’s a great proofreading tool. You can join and download free grammarly software here.
- Avoid direct translations; online proofreaders will help you with that.
Additionally, improve your grammar at grammar-monster ; they feature easy to understand and very comprehensive basic grammar lessons.
- Forum post must be on topic.
Before submitting a new thread or reply, see to it you understand the topic of discussion. For instance, at the portal are 4 main subjects;
- Technology and internet
- Front desk.
Under these main subjects are sub-subjects,
e.g., under entertainment you will find:
- Video games
Beneath the sub-subjects are discussion topics generated by the users on postloop. At this point, you can post new topics and replies for approval.
Post the right topic under the right subject.
3. A forum post must be easy to follow.
When writing a post, make sure the points are well arranged in an effective
Break your thoughts by paragraphs, numbers or bullets; this allows easier comprehension.
4. Forum post should introduce a novel idea.
Before publishing a new post, lookup the portal to avoid repetition; write concerning a similar topic only when introducing a new angle or fresh idea.
When posting a reply;
Read what other users have posted to avoid repetition.
Determine whether to:
- Answer a question,
- Support an opinion,
- Or, give a contrary opinion.
Once you have decided,
Back up your notion with a fact, story, figure or an example. You may not have all these on your finger tips, that’s why you have Google.
Open the Google search page and type the keyword or the entire topic headline. Open the first few pages and you have enough ideas to create a decent reply.
Make sure you have introduced an interesting idea, fact or figure to the thread.
4. Write Long posts
Write at least 40 words per post; whether a new topic or a reply.
The length of a forum post is irrelevant if the post meets all the above requirements. However, as a rule, informative quality posts are a long. By following step 1-4, your posts will naturally be long enough.
5. Write at least 3 new topics and seven replies.
All board admins ask that users create in the least 30% new topics. The good news; most topics on the postloop portal are every day discussions. You can write about ordinary situations like movies, pets, politics, losing weight, facebook etc.
6. Be polite
A forum is community; and like any other social gathering, high level of respect for peers is expected.
Although we are permitted to disagree, disrespectful language will get you banned faster than the apprentice working for Donald trump. To remain 110% polite avoid these 2 things;
- Disagree with a user before fully understanding their point of view.
- Use of abusive, demeaning or insulting language in spite of other user’s point of view. If you feel insulted, report to the admin.
Whenever posting a reply in a thread, it helps big time to mention, congratulate, thank or quote another user who have put up an epic post.
This demonstrates you not only follow, but also care about other users’ opinions; chances are high they will mention you back.
- Use @ sign followed by the name of the user you want to mention. E.g. @joseph
- Use the quote tool when referring to another user’s reply post.
Note: don’t forget to subscribe at the postloop portal before submitting your 10 trial posts.
So that’s about everything about passing the postloop approval test. Did I leave anything behind? Do you have an addition? Disagree with any point? Drop me a comment.

Iwriter, Freelancer, Eance vs. Blogjob; 3 major reasons why I ditched content mills for blogging.
Most new writers chose freelance writing over blogging, I did too. When I started writing for the web, freelance writing seemed as the best way to earn money. So I joined iwriter and freelancer where I landed my first writing gigs. After working for six months, a question hit me, “why do people pay me to write articles for them”. The answer was simple: because they make money using the articles. From then I decided to explore the opportunities offered by owning a blog. Ladies and gentlemen, if you have been wondering which direction to steer your writing career, hold tight and read on…
Presenting to you3 reasons why I chose blogging over freelance writing.
Freedom is among the major reasons why most people quit day jobs for the online freelance industry, and although freelancers enjoy a certain degree of choice, it’s bloggers who swim entirely in the ocean of choices. Blogging not only offers freedom to work on your schedule but also the choice to write whatever it is that soothes your pen. Iwriter gave me the freedom to choose the articles I wanted to handle but with condition, I have to research, write, proofread and deliver the article within two hours. With my blog I can take as long as I want with my post; I can toy with it for days until it feels right.
This is the part where most writers get confused; freelancer’s tarts earning money almost immediately while blogging takes some time. But that doesn’t have to be the case, with sites like blogjob, you start earning money immediately after you publish your first 300 word post. From that same post, you can continuously earn money via 4 more different streams:
- You earn money when other users view your post.
- When they comment on your post,
- When they view ads on your posts,
- When they buy, or sign up via your affiliate links.
For instance, a 300 word article at iwriter earned me $1.6, the same 300 article at blogjob earns me $0.5 just for posting on my own blogsite, and I continuously earn daily from every view on my blog, I promote 4 affiliate programs within my posts where one pays me $0.5 every time one person sign ups to their website for free, another pays $0.25 for free sign up. The other two pays me lifetime 20% of whatever the users earns or spend on their site. Now do the math.
I have 3 sign ups each worth 0.5=1.5
13 sign ups earning 20% of what they make, average $5 day= 5x12x20/100=$12
2365 views for the last 20 days, 2365x$0.01=23.65
42 comments 40x 0.01=$0.4
I have only written 20 articles for the last 20 days.
These are true statistics from my blog site at blogjob. The good news is; these earnings will continue soaring as I continue working on my site.
- Short and Long term benefits
As you can already see from my short time experience with blogjob, blogging presents both short time and long term advantages. Not only will I earn instantly from the posts I write, but also residual income from the referral links I chose to promote, views, comments while I build an online presence.
I don’t know your reasons for reading this piece, but whatever you are looking for, whether wealth, freedom, or both; you will find them here at blogjob.
