    HEy fellow IMers

    I see a lot of people mentioning that writing articles is a quick way to make money. I'm interested in outsourcing article writing.

    1. Where are some good places and sites to get quality writers that aren't too expensive?

    2. Where can I find lots of people looking for articles besides places like textbroker, iwriter, odesk, and getafreelancer? Or are they the ideal places to look for article writing jobs?

    3. I see that most articles cost about $5 per 500 words. Well where can you find people who are willing to pay more than that?

    I appreciate all help guys.

    I'd highly recommend oDesk....

    I use them for a variety of writing gigs, from basic content all the way up to bad ass copywriters for some of my products.

    The key though is to be sure to interview properly, and hire for a "test" job. Test jobs are very important as you can gauge how they work, what type of quality they produce, and if they are a true asset.

    There are some service providers that provide content writers, but lets face it, they need to make the margins work which means that they are likely gonna be too expensive in the first place.

    I think OP wants to find someone who can write great articles for $5 and then sell to someone else for say $10 so just be the middle man.

    Good quality articles will cost around $10 unless ordered in bulk. Average articles go for $5 or less.

    I see alot of people saying good quality articles cost around $2.50 per 100 words etc.. But i write great quality articles for $1 per 100 words, sometimes $0.90. Check my i-trader. Im from the UK and if you write enough a day, you can still make a decent income.

    IMO, it depends on what you want to do with the articles, as in, where you want to post them.

    If you're wanting articles for your money site, and aren't an expert in the niche, post ads on craigslist asking for people in that niche to write articles for you for $5 - $10 a piece. This also works really well for having quality "guest post" articles created for you to submit to established sites.

    But if you're just needing articles for your Tier 1 sites, find an article from a competitor and post a re-write job on MTurk. Get 3 or more of these articles, spin them, post to your web 2.0's / article directories / etc. Just make sure you check that they pass CopyScape.




    I know this may be asking a lot, but would you mind PM'ing me your copywriter's contact info on Odesk (username or whatever)? I really need a better sales copy writer for my money site. Thanks in advance.
