A Multi-Stage Writing Job (also known as a multi-stage review document or long document), is one that the client has set up to be submitted and reviewed in stages. This would include jobs with larger word counts (at least 800 words), such as long blog posts, white papers and ebooks. The purpose of submitting in sections is to make sure that the content stays on track, to eliminate wasted time on the part of both the writer and client. If you accept a multi-stage writing job, you may be required to submit an outline, as well. If the client has chosen to have you write an outline, this will be submitted first, before Section 1 of the document. Each section submitted must be reviewed and approved by the client before the next section can be started by the writer. Each section is paid upon approval, just like standard docs. In this sense, each section of a multi-stage document is like its own individual job. The first two sections will be a max word count of 600 words. From there, the system allows more words per section based on the number of words previously approved. For example, if the client approves the first two sections at 600 each, the third section jumps to 1200 words. If that is approved, the next section would increase to 2400, then 4800, and so on. The system calculates this automatically. This allows the content to flow more freely as the client's trust in the writer builds. You will not be able to submit more than the designated max word count for each section. If the system does not allow you to submit, check the word count and keyword density (if applicable) and make adjustments if necessary. Once each section is approved, the next section is automatically placed in your Pending First Draft folder. When the project is complete, you will check a box that says "This is the Last Section". This prevents further sections from going into your Pending First Draft folder. If you request a word count increase on a multi-stage writing job, the additional words will apply to a future section of the document. So, after the client approves the word count increase, you won't see an increase on the current section — but you will have more words to use later.
