    I've started a Content/Article Writing Agency. Do you think it is a good business idea to partner with a number of SEO Agencies and have them outsource their content and articles that they need written to me?

    I think the most important thing is getting your first customers, regardless of where they come from ;)

    I previously ran a similar type of agency and had content orders that came from three SEO agencies.

    It was great to have them because they provided consistent contracts and gave me the ability to have predictable revenue each month.

    Of course, they can be more demanding and can sometimes be harder to sell to initially.

    I interviewed at a big seo agency once. The CEO was a prima Donna and every worker in the place stared at me with bug eyesvlike I was going to take their job or get rolled or something.
    I couldn't tell if he was really offering a job or just mining my social contacts and references for clients. They said they were giving up their mid Wilshire office space for a "custom" office designed so the boss' dog could walk around in peace.

    I got the f out of there. Those people are selling magic oil from a genie lamp and hoping the checks clear before the clients figure out the snake oil is elbow grease.

    Just one person' opinion. If the writers' provide the work product that makes the seo machine crank then why are writers at the bottom of the totem pole by fee and decision making structure?

    You'll never know what you're gaining or losing until you try, @Janaenelly. Just set the boundaries of the two of you to avoid conflicts of interest. A non-disclosure agreement is recommended.
