Writers can earn between $1,000 and $15,000 through a single order. Most people find employers through social media, Upwork, LinkedIn, and Facebook, including clients. Writers from countries such as Ukraine and Nigeria mentioned that they had been fabricated and exaggerated by the project. Most of the authors interviewed said that the recent surge in outsourcing business demand may be a sign that the encryption market is beginning to recover from a long bear market.
