    hi
    I have joined a blog network and they have a monthly membership fee, which i can afford. however, I have to write unique articles to put my links. I need about 100 articles per month, and I have no time/patience to write them myself, and I noticed on odesk most people take about a minimum of $2 to write a 450 word article...at 100 articles per month, that's $200, which I cant afford. I am wondering if there is cheaper options? It's ok if the articles are not perfect English, I can proofread them myself...I dont know guys, help me, I cant afford $200.

    What content networks are you using? Some content networks like Linkvana are easier to pass spinned content through, so you don't have to write as much. Some networks are very stingy and they do constant checks.

    There is no cheap and easy way to good unique content. I am not saying there aren't workarounds, but in the long run its a losing battle as content quality is one of the main areas of judgment for SE, so its a constantly evolving checking process.

    The best tool for generating quick unique content though sits between your ears. Reading articles, and rewriting them in your own words is the least detectable method for producing good clean content fairly quickly. If you need many versions of the same articles for multiple submissions then take the time to spin, but for one off articles rewriting is the best move.

    my strategy:

    1. create an account on onlinejobs.ph (50$)
    2. make a joblisting for 15000 PHP (~400$) fulltime and make sure that you allow just people with an english degree
    3. make job interviews through voice conversation(skype) and ask them also for copywriting skills
    4. give the guys 3 testarticles (paid hourly or fixed)
    5. track them already through odesk so that you see how much time they invest/how productiv they are
    6. choose one and track him the first month through odesk

    If you are like me not a native speaker, search for one and let him read the testarticles.

    I think with some experience you get for 3$ a good article and for 4$ a good article with copywriting elements.

    If you read some bullshit with thousands of rhetorik questions, instantly don´t waste your time and stop thinking about hiring him.

    If you want to spend less than hire somebody just for 250$ a month and let him right 200 articles a month but the english will be bad and you probably have big leaks in your business if you want to invest so much time for saving 100$.

    I gave some testjobs to people that didn´t fullfill my wishes (because i can´t proofread the articles and they have to be nearly perfect). If you want i can send you their contact details. I don´t have any bad/secret reasons for offering that.

    how about u use a strategy ? like you offer a package, e.g 5 articles for 2 dollars ? and you can calculate how much money you can spent and make it like a package, so looks more interesting

    and maybe you also can ask your (best) friend to help you, so the task it's not too heavy too carry by yourself

    if i could manage good content even at $2 I would be rocking 5 grands a month easily.
    There are no cheap ooptions in this case, you sure have some workarounds as stated above. But that too depends on the network you are using.

    The best thing is try to write few articles yourself everyday. Assume you are spending the time to proofread to write the unique articles. You can do that for the next few weeks until you would be able to hire someone to do the whole job for you.

    Devil's advocate here. Are you running a business or a hobby?

    Hobbies have expenses. A business has an initial expense and a ROI on that outlay.

    Your mindset will determine your experiences.

    If you can't afford a large outlay to begin with, start small and reinvest the profits. Once you can afford staff then you can go from 20 hours a week (assuming you are working) to 60 hours a week instantly.

    Success is an upward trending (and sometimes downtrending) curve ... it is rarely a straight line.

    Dragon Software

    All you do is read from a article and speak into your intercom. Spin it, and it will take you 2 - 4 minutes to make good quality articles that if done right, will be very nice. Actually got the software a year back when I started IM. I gave up and I am now back, and WILL be using this again. Good Luck!

    Pay a peanut and get a monkey :D

    If you're looking for quality then hire some good writers. Gonna cost you $1-2/100 words.

    Depends entirely on your needs.

    I agree with HiTek. Dragon will increase your productivity by 3-5 times. Definitely worth it.

    If you want, I'm ready for this service.
    How about $1.5 per article with 450 words.
    If you want I can give you my previous job as a sample.
    Don't test me, if you need real sample, just test me with real order.
    You can order 1 article for $1.5 as a test.
    Regards,

    Steven

    If you have some money to invest and test, I heard big people respond very positively about Instant Article Wizard, i didn't try it by myself, but i think it should be good because there are no analog software, it came out from beta a couple month ago, to creating articles!
