    Hi BHW,

    So, I've just ordered some articles from 1 or 2 writers here on bhw and the articles are pretty shit to be honest... I mean, they are not specific at all to the topic I asked for, they look like the kind of text that I'd write back in school when I wanted to hand in an exam that looked like I knew what I was writing about, but 80% of it was fluff...

    Now, I was wondering... are there copywriters out there that deliver a good piece of work, showing a little bit of research or do you guys need to do a lot of alterations yourselves on most of the pieces of content you get?

    Judging from this small sample of articles I've got, I think I'd be better off writing them myself, but I don't think I'm a) very good at it / b) very time consuming... You guys got any tips on how to improve speed of writing / any softwares out there?

    thanks, let me know
    WW

    I have also been a victim of that. Maybe you could consider finding someone in upwork, there a lot of good writers there with good profiles and reviews. I have oredered some articles there and i have not been disappointed so far. cheap and of quality. you can also check from iwriter. All the best

    What do you expect from an ESL writing $1 articles? The content here is horrible.

    Go to Upwork and pay a higher amount and ask for someone experienced in your field. My clients love me, because I specialize in a specific area and write from experience. You'll pay much more than the shitty $1/article jokers on this site.

    Remember that the $1 writers are just pumping out junk they know nothing about. It's filler, and it'll get your site penalized. They write about any topic and don't specialize in anything. When you get a writer who has worked in the field or understands the topic, they not only write off the top of their heads, they also write much more authoritative content.

    Hi archon,
    thanks for your reply. I guess I'll try upwork soonish, or I'll just write them myself. I think I deluded myself with great expectations vs. the low price I was paying, but reading some of the reviews of other bhw members, I actually thought I'd stumbled upon something great! Thanks for your input though, much apprec.

    I do feel that there are some really good ones out there. Others do need some work. It just depends on who does the work for you.

    I agree that a test is what is needed before you hire them. Give them a few samples to do and see if they are capable of doing what you want.

    There are many good writers out here too. It takes some time to figure out who suits best. I will also agree that testing with a sample helps.
