Discover the Value of EzineArticles

Our internal team and our 200,000+ members all know about the incredible benefits of EzineArticles membership, but it’s always been a challenge to explain what we do to the rest of the world. This video strives to bridge that gap by answering two simple questions:

  1. What is EzineArticles?
  2. What’s the value of membership?

Watch this video to get the answers to those questions and more. And at the same time, meet 4 of the key players on the EzineArticles Team:

  • Chris Knight, CEO & Publisher
  • The Other Chris, VP of Operations
  • Penny, Managing Editor
  • Marc, Marketing Manager and Public Relations

In the process we hope you’ll see, and feel, the passion we have for EzineArticles, our team and our huge family of domestic and international members. None-the-less, we’ve also created a downloadable transcript of the video for those who may need it. [Download PDF – 236K]

I’m so grateful for your wonderful service. I love knowing there’s an outlet for my thoughts, opinions, information and you make it very easy to submit material. Additionally, I appreciate your help with keywords and the “resource box” gives me an opportunity to publicize who I am and what I do.

Is there anyway to speed up the approval process? Some of my articles have been with you two weeks and I’m still waiting. I know you receive lots of submissions and I’m asking a lot to request a speedier process and…I’m requesting a speedier process.
Thank you

Basic level members have the longest wait…therefore, seek to reach Platinum status as Platinum members [PDF] receive an article review speed that is currently 300% faster than our basic level members.

Every single article submission is reviewed by 2 humans on our team and that’s why it takes a while.

Know that we’re working on improving our human article review speed because we’re not meeting our own internal speed targets.

Specifically, we’re hiring 4-8 new full-time local Editors every single month, we’re running two shifts of Editors right now from 7am to 11pm M-F, we’re allowing our best Editors to work overtime on the weekends and we’re working on innovating the submission process to help you get your articles accepted faster.

If you don’t want to wait, your articles can skip the wait and go to the front of the line for same or next business day review by becoming a Premium member.

it’s quite frankly HARD to see and feel the passion, when the video is so obviously SCRIPTED :P – It’s just too notorious

don’t get me wrong, I love E@, but the message would be a lot more effective if it came directly from the speakers. keep it up

Thanks for the feedback.

Yeah, so we were all a little nervous shooting it except for the Marketing guy (he wasn’t nervous).

In the end, talk is cheap, video is cheap; all that matters is that we deliver.

If anyone else hated the video, please tell us specifically what we could do in the future to make it better. Thanks!

Chris and Gang,

I loved the video! Well scripted and full of great information!

Most of all, I love your service. I took a break for a while, but I’m back and loving all the new stuff you guys have added.

Know that you are truly appreciated!

I appreciated seeing some of our EzineArticles team talking. I thought it was cool.

While I adore writing, I really love seeing a face, especially here because you have helped me to have exposure that is hard to come by. Another thing about EzineArticles is the discipline it takes to be accepted as an expert. A decent writer could crank out a newsletter or an article that had some interest but I know when I prepare my newsletter it must be good enough to be in EzineArticles, too.

So thanks for your efforts; they have made me a better writer.

Hey guys,

In today’s world, too often we hear criticism for what we do wrong and not enough praise for things we do write.

Let me tell you that is like a breath of fresh air in what has become a hype driven, bait and switch atmosphere of the Internet today. It is truly “search at your own risk”.

You guys deliver 100% of what you promise, and most of your services are totally free! In fact, I make your email training mandatory for anyone my team interested in article writing and marketing.

Thanks for the honesty and integrity of your site.


PS I also loved your video. From one who dislikes doing videos, you guys were terrific.

As a videographer who films others and myself to add video to our marketing efforts, I know first hand how hard it is to get someone who is not a trained actor to deliver good takes with “passion and energy”. It seems the minute that camera turns on, people get the deer in the headlight syndrome. I know I do!

So I thought your video was spot on and I know the effort that was put into it. I appreciate your production values. And your service!

We’re very conscious of our hearing-impaired members, so you’ll find that each of the videos on our YouTube Channel is closed-captioned. To activate this feature, simply click on the arrow icon in the lower-left corner of the viewer.

Note: Videos get posted to the YouTube Channel about 10 days after they debut on the blog. So in the meantime we’ll add a link to a PDF transcript in this blog post before the end of the day.

I love the fact that all submissions are reviewed by two humans. So much internet content is wrong and a lot of it, especially in the medical field, is frankly dangerous.

I know it would be a huge job but have you considered employing expert reviewers in certain critical niches? This would make EzineArticles even more authoritative.

1. I luv your service. I luv that you give us the opportunity to feel confident and special.
2. I luv how your friendliness welcomes new authors.
3. I luv how I’m deemed an Expert Author.
4. I luv that I’m a Top Author!
5. And I luv that I was rewarded for reaching Platinum membership by receiving my Ezine Article’s mug and stuff.

I guess you could say, “I love EzineArticles for all the things they do for me!”

Chris x2, Penny and Marc – that was a very good video – concise efficient info in ‘bite-sized’ chunks that my brain could handle. Your site too, works well and after 27 or 28 submissions I’ve experienced NO rejections! Very professional outfit and one I’m pleased to be a part of and an author for!

Great to see and hear the awesome foursome behind the scene. The EzineArticles warmth is oozing out of the video to touch us directly.

Comment provided September 23, 2009 at 8:31 AM



EzineArticles is managed by dozens of full time team members who work tirelessly behind the scenes. Just wanted to give credit where it’s due as there are many more than just the “4” in this video.

In the coming months, we’ll introduce more people who run the behind-the-scenes.

Well done! I LOVE ‘meeting’ the team behind e-zine articles. I love being involved and having the opportunity to share my expertise (and my valuable information on HAPPINESS with the world via your platform). I love knowing I am in the hands of experts! Your tutorials were incredibly helpful. I could go on and on. Keep up the good work!

Happy Pat :)

Being a member of Ezine and having articles accepted is great. The tutorials and newsletters I receive in my email inbox are fantastic. I receive a lot of emails from various sites I belong to in an effort to create exposure for my website and business, and I have to say I simply don’t have the time to go through them all, but Ezine’s ones I don’t simply delete. I still have many in my inbox waiting for me to go through them. They don’t deserve to be deleted as they hold much value for me.

I enjoy seeing that members have good quality articles accepted, and knowing that I am part of this crowd. However, from time to time I have come across some EzineArticles with some grammatical errors in them, or poor word choices as if the article has been spun, and wonder how they got accepted. I wouldn’t feel like a good Ezine writer if somebody pointed out to me I’d made a few errors, but the article was accepted anyway. It’s not many I have noticed, but I still feel it’s something that should not be overlooked.

I also feel the video was a bit too scripted, but the 4 of you were certainly brave to do it, and to try control your nerves. I couldn’t do it.
