    You probably know who I am. You’ve probably seen me around. You may like what I have to say. You may not. I don’t appeal to all personalities. Do you want to know what is appealing? My writing.

    Have you received content in the past that is dreamily written, but on second glance had more filler than flavor? I have, too.

    I despise filler with a burning passion. Get to the point or stop wasting my time, am I right? This is why I don’t have a superhero-branded infographic in your face right now. This is also why my writing will blow you away. Don’t believe me? Read on.

    My writing service is geared towards those whose web properties are driven by real people reading the actual content. I’m not going to write you ten 300-word articles with keyword densities of 10%. I respect my craft better than that, and in my opinion, you should show your websites a far higher degree of quality. Do not come to me needing a 24-hour turnaround time or anything ridiculous. Quality, quantity, speed. You get to pick two.

    I have seen many sellers touting that they are the best writing service in the Marketplace. They aren’t. No offense to any of you content writers. How do I know that they aren’t?

    I’m here now, and I'm the best.

    Want review copies? I’ve given them all out already. Want an early bird or bulk order discount? You won’t get one here. My rates are flat and minimalist. No tiers, no caveats, no garbage, no upsell, and (as stated) no filler. Want to see some writing samples? Go to my profile and look at the threads I’ve started. Anyone who offers you a stack of sample articles is presenting you with the best they have to offer and will deliver something 50% lower in quality; I can promise you that.

    Still with me? Here’s a sentence that may drive you away: My rate is 9 cents per word. Still there? Let me explain how this is going to work:

    WORKLOAD AND STRUCTURE

    I will write a maximum of 2,000 words per day of the most buttery-smooth content you’ve ever read. It’s just me, not a “team of writers.” I work best alone, and I want only the best for my clients. You will be royalty.

    I write on a First-come, First-serve basis. Your job is simply to fill out my form and give some details. If I like what you’re requesting and think I can spin gold, I’ll email you my offering, when I can get your order done, and how to pay me.

    Want to use me as a regular writer for your website on a weekly basis, weaving together beautiful 1,000-word symphonies like clockwork? I can happily do that, but require a minimum of four weeks payment initially (I will do the math for you, that’s $360), and every four weeks thereafter. I can do once a month as well and just invoice you each month before writing begins. Want to utilize 100% of my resources? I plan on doing this five days a week. That’s 10,000 words per week, which is $900. Yes, I just did the math again. That’s customer satisfaction.

    When you pay, I will provide you with an order ID. This order ID will then be placed on an Excel calendar that I will post in this thread on a regular basis scheduling out the following eight weeks of content writing. I will use the order ID publicly instead of a username to maintain anonymity. What’s the benefit to this? You can see exactly when your work will be completed, where you are in the queue, and if there are any delays planned. The calendar is my version of transparency. You can see when vacations and days off occur.

    MY PROCESS

    1. Once I receive an order inquiry, I do some research to ensure that I can meet the requested criteria and email a conceptual overview. If accepted, I will then send over a PayPal invoice and an estimated completion date. Please note that if I have a backlog, your order may not be completed for a few weeks. I’d rather give you a stretched out completion date than burn out writing too much and deliver low-quality artistry.
    2. Once paid, I will add your order to the calendar via order ID. I will keep in touch via email and answer any and all questions you may have to the best of my ability.
    3. When your block of writing time arrives, I split my workload into three phases: Research, Development, and Enhancements. Research is making sure I know what I’m doing when I start writing. Development is the writing itself. Enhancements are proofreading, grammatical pass-throughs, and unique image/media additions if requested.
    4. Your articles are packaged up beautifully and delivered via email in DOCX format after completion.

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    What about revisions?

    If you are honestly displeased with the quality of work, or if you see errors that you would like fixed, let me know in detail what you would like changed, and I will revise it, no questions asked. Client satisfaction is my number two priority. Writing solid gold is number one.

    What about refunds?

    If you receive content, you will not be reimbursed. The money spent is for the labor input into the work. I will not deliver subpar work, so that should not be an issue. If there is a forthcoming delay, and I inform you, and the delay does not work for your timeframe, I will happily refund your money.

    What topics do you write about?

    I will take on most topics you throw at me. Granted, I will do a far better job on “Hidden Gems And Roads Less Traveled in Rome” than “Top 10 Lipsticks In Russia”. Take that however you wish.

    How do we pay you if we can’t use PayPal?

    I will possibly accept alternative forms of currency. Not bitcoin, not terrible foreign PayPal alternatives. Something like an Amazon gift card. Let me know if there will be issues with this. I’m sure we can work something out.

    When do you start writing?

    July 4th, 2017. Independence Day. From now until then I am building a backlog of orders so I can hit the ground running.

    Where is this form you are talking about?

    Right here: THE MAGICAL FORM

    Super impressed with this, I absolutely see why the price is so high.

    The writing delivered was excellent quality and EXTREMELY well researched. The delivered article was excellent.

    It's clear that a decent amount of time went into the review article and the end result was awesome.

    Example of content:
    https://i.gyazo.com/ee95d4b5595e9297ff15f29c9862e50f.png

    TAT was also incredibly quick and they over delivered in terms of word count.

    Thank you @I know SEO! Overdelivery is going to be part of my process for all articles. If you see a 500 word article that is right at 500 words, it's obvious that the writer missed the word count and threw in arbitrary words to meet requirements. I don't roll like that. I'll likely go 15-25% above word count on all articles (with no increase in price).

    As stated above, review copies have already been given, and I don't do samples as it is a positive skew to the actual workload. For a sample see the image IKS linked. And I know I wrote that there was no early bird discount, but I'm a liar.

    20% off the first 10 orders placed!

    Either fill out the form here, or send me a PM. Note that if you PM me, I'll direct you to the form anyway.

    Was fortunate enough to get a review copy.

    I gave him a pretty broad topic, writing about how/why local businesses should use social media.

    To be honest I knew it was going to be good but he really crushed this one since it's right in his wheelhouse.

    None of it was fluff. He understood my target audience and crafted a story that the reader can relate to, as well as a solution to their problem.

    This is the exact kind of content that you need for a serious business site, no questions asked.

    Thanks again man and congratulations to anyone else that gets some of this content.

    Man I so wish I could afford you.
    Great writing. I write myself but would never have the balls to charge those prices. Good luck with sales.

    Thanks so much for the review @nikchaing!

    I know, it's expensive. But you get what you pay for. Thanks for the luck!

    I charge what I believe I am worth. The initial price was going to be 10 cents a word, but I feel like people would shy away from double digits. Plus with the initial discount it's 7.2 cents per word!

    You could buy 50k backlinks for $5 from fiverr , and could buy 5 backlinks from big authority websites for $5k ..., could drive Kia car for $5k and could drive Ferrari car for $500k ...

    always you have the choice as customer and no one force you to buy something ...

    Good luck OP

    Much appreciated, @thetrustedzone!

    My services are not for everyone by any means. I know there are members here living in areas where the cost of living equates to around $9 per day.

    If you are extremely interested in my content, but lack to funding to pay 9 cents per word (or 7.2 cents per word at the moment), send me a message anyway. We might be able to work something out.

    Just read the example article. DAMN.
    That's some A+ work. The writing style is like a Documentary on Discovery Channel. (In a good way)

    Wish I could afford you.
    Good luck with sales.

    [Please excuse the crudity of this review. I am sick af so you might see some stuff that makes no sense. I apologize in advance.]

    I got a review copy.

    I just threw Sherbs a generic topic and told him I needed the article to update my blog. That's all I said. No word count, no link to the blog, no other instructions.

    The next day he gave me a 1000+ word article that was so detailed and well-researched I wanted to shove Benjamins in his G-string.

    It was not a basic article like "What is [subject]" or "How [subject] benefits you." It was a "How is [subject] made" article and he went very in-depth with the process and details.

    What is even better is the article was in very simple English, so my audience would definitely understand it. At the same time it felt like Sherbs had worked in the factory so he knew how this process went personally. That's how the article was written.

    As a bonus, the headers/subtitles/whatever were very entertaining and summed up each section nicely.

    Overall it was a very educational piece, and I did not find one spelling or grammatical error. It was perfect from start to finish.

    I would honestly pay Sherbs whatver his asking price was. He's that good; better than me even.

    Glad I don't have a writing BST here. I wouldn't want him as competition.

    Thanks so much, @alwaysinvisible! There we have it, folks. A review from one of the best writers on BHW, a review from the Marketplace god, and a review from our resident Asian entrepreneur.

    Anyone have any questions? Hit me with them.

    Glad to hear it! I look forward to your future business, and thank you for the luck.

    I also look forward to your future business, and thank you for the luck as well!

    I think it can be either subforum or sub-forum, depending on your personal preference. Changing the hyphen is something that can be handled in articles if revisions are needed. :D

    Of course! I wasn't, in any way, meaning that your content might not be worth 9$. Quality service/product costs.

    Good luck with the future sales again.

    OP gave me no review copy or anything but judging by the quality of his threads here I think he'll do a great job and deserves a BUMP.
