    I will be buying content for my website. The question is should I go for the most premium content ($8-$10 per 100 words) or the $1.50/100 words will work fine. Will the $10 content make 6 times more money than the $1.5 content? I read many sales threads here, everyone is offering super quality content but at a very different prices. What is more confusing is that they all have many positive reviews so I can't really say if the premium content is that much better than the normal content. So I am asking if some of you have purchased both the $10 and $1.5 content and can say if the premium content is really worth it.

    What I see is that most people go with the cheap content. Is ranking as easy or can I expect more conversion, easier ranking with the premium content?

    If I go with the $10/100words content I will be able to purchase 1 article per week at the most while with the cheaper content I can purchase a lot more. I consider also something in the middle like $3.50/100words. I just want the best results for my money.

    Please if you have a sales thread don't advertise your service. I am not asking for that.

    Thanks for any help.

    So nobody has experience with premium content?? I thought there would be at least few who tried the $50 articles.

    Not the top internet marketer, but from my experience "quality content" online has a totally different meaning than in other kind of products.

    You can write quite the BS as long as it is presented in the right way and appeals to the right emotions.

    So, to know if those services can provide you with the content you need, learn what people like and share online, and then buy the content from those who can write following those guidelines.

    I have worked with content writers, but only through Freelancer
    At first, I tended to hire more experienced and expensive freelancers, but then tried to switch to those who offered content for a smaller price.
    From my experience, the price difference did not matter much. What really matters is to see the examples of someone's work, or, as it was in my case, to communicate with a potential content creator, and make a decision based on that impression. Hope my reply is of any help.

    I am a content writer. I've written for pennies and I've written for pounds - the necessities of life being what they are. I'll tell you this - I did good work for the jobs that paid pennies, but I did it slowly. There's no motivation for me, if I'm going to get $15 for a 1000-word article. Experienced, well-connected copywriters often ask, like you said, for $80 at minimum.

    When I did the work for "pounds", that is, a higher fee, I made *sure* that I did the best work that I could for my client, and that I delivered it on time. Because it was worth it.

    So... There will definitely be a difference in quality. Furthermore, for the low prices, you might well get people for whom English is not their first language, or who have very, lets say, "weird" English - Indians, Filipinos, etc. And then it'll be more headache for you to rewrite it, fix the vocabulary and grammar mistakes, and so on...

    You get what you pay for. Be careful.

    The charges of the copywriters usually depend on their work experience, but it doesn't mean that you won't get good content from the newbies or those who sell their work for a lower price. Indeed, it might turn out that those who charge less use English as a second language, so be careful with that, especially if you don't have time/resources to proofread everything. However, there might also be the new comers who write great content but because they don't have extensive portfolios they charge less.

    So for best results, before hiring someone, have a look at the work they did and act accordingly.

    Why don't you run a conversion test? Whichever produces the most profitable conversions (not just volume conversions of low profit margin items) should be the type of content you go with. This shouldn't be too hard.

    I've hired some freelancer as well and I got exactly the same experience.
    Price is not always a gurantee for quality, I've got my best article (around 1000 words) for around 5$, while I've paid much more for articles well written (sure) but that don't had any reall appealing for a reader.

    If you hire freelancers watch their feedbacks and ask for some of their former works.

    And good luck :D

    Yeah right I got thousands of $$ sitting around just waiting to purchase tons of content from different providers, rank it and test it out. This shouldn't be too hard if I had $10000 spare change.

    Google's new "Quality Rater Guidelines" specify the importance of "E-A-T" in their manual website reviews: Expertise - Authority - Trustworthiness. I've reviewed some test results that indicate that G's algo's are also picking up on keyword and related terms frequency counts to determine E-A-T - So if your content writers are just burping out content on subjects on which they have little knowledge, then there's a good chance that may play into poor results from such content.
    Just an idea.

    What you mean by "qualify content"?
    If you need content for a weight loss site, a premium writer in the niche binaryoption cannot be best candidate.
    So, find s/o that really knows about your stuff.

    this goes only to the budget

    If you got gazillions $$ in stock you want to use then by all means hire an expert, preferably someone who already wrote a book on your niche

    If you dont then stick to what your budget gives you. Before you do this planning is crucial
    - How many $$ can you spend a month on content
    - Then calcualte based on the budget how can you put 1 article a day

    example new site budget it $600 per month on content
    That's $20 a day, on that $20 a day i can find a quality writer at 1k words already

    I don't know Tamerlane and I have never purchase any article from him.
    But I have to agree with he says on "you get what you pay for".

    I have some bad experience purchasing cheap articles.
    But I cannot complain the quality as they are really cheap.

    When you starting a new project that you earn money from it, you would go for these article - $8-$10 per 100 words. I believe that the quality content will return its investment. If you are planning to earn good money from a single page and this page has shitty content, do you think that is fine? I don't.

    If you are limited with your budgets, try this - get one not so good article and check it carefully. If you have the expiration - make it better by rewriting some parts or/and adding more to it. Think like that - when you buy something cheaper here, you loss time, but then you don't - you have your time to focus on something else. ;)
