Hey! I've gotten numerous questions how I get cheap content so I decided to throw together a guide how I personally do it. It is really easy and I am sure many of you know about this already but I've seen some ridiculous prices on content that you can get for much cheaper so here we go! First off you need to register on preferred freelancer site (I personally use Upwork). Secondly, you should make a job listing on preferred freelancer site Posting a job listing This is what I use as title and description: Title: Write 1000+ words of Premium Fitness Content $6 Description: I will give you one topic to write about in the fitness niche. If I am satisfied with your work, you'll get additional work. This will be a long-term writing job and a chance to get many 5* reviews. (Writers want 5* reviews really bad, so use that to your advantage!) You're required to: Be a native english speaker Be able to do a throughout research of both products and topics - End of example - I simply add category as "Writing" and sub-category as "Article & Blog Writing". Pay for a fixed price of $6 and then I pick "Intermediate Level" but the other two options might be better - haven't really tested those yet. Click publish job. Here's how your application should look like now: Reviewing applications So after you've listed your job you will see a few applicants directly, those are usually bots. I got my first writer (that still work for me) after 2-3 hours. So, depending on the time and day you might get a golden nugget within an hour or so! I will give you an example of a good application and a bad one. Good: Hi YOURNAME, I've been actively working as a content writer for various fitness websites for the past 2 years as a content writer and have since then collected a great amount of knowledge in this niche (and still progressing). I am also a active runner, swimmer and I work out 3 times a week in my local gym. I think I will be a perfect fit for your work! Bad: Dear Sir, Thank you for this wonderful opportunity. Your job post has caught my attention because I'm an article writing addict and I?m considering your job for me with these required capabilities. I have excellent experience in article writing in English language. I have good command over English grammar, English Basic Skills, English Spelling, English Vocabulary, U.S. English Sentence Structure, U.S. English Punctuation, Direct & Indirect Narration, Active Voice &Passive Voice, Conjunctions, Prepositions, Prepositional phrases, Verb phrases, Tenses, Noun phrases, Pronouns, Adverbs, Adjective phrases, and other grammar related topics. - End of example - Let me explain why I think the first one is good and the other one is bad. The first one is an application related to my niche and talks about their previous experience in my niche, they also say my name which goes to show that they have actually read my listing not just copy+paste'd the same message to me as everyone else. The second one isn't even mentioning my name. Sure, they mention everything they can do but nothing related to my niche. I want one that is either good at research or one that actually have knowledge in my niche - they don't show that they are good at either of those in this application. The trial run In every listing I do I get about 3-4 (or more) interesting application within the first 24 hours. So I send them all a topic and a few keywords to use. If I want them to do regular reviews of products, I'd tell them to include a product related to the topic they write about. In example an article about "How to curl more" and I ask them to include a set of dumbbells in the article. This is just to test each writer and see what they do with what I provide. I would suggest you to not assign too heavy assignments in the beginning as you just want to see the quality, therefore an informative article is great. Also, make sure to assign different topics to each writer so that you can use each piece that is good enough. You'll usually get the article within 1-2 days and from there you determine who you want to keep and who isn't worthy of a spot. If you only search for one writer, just keep the best one and decline the others. I'd suggest you to ask how many articles each writer is able to produce per week. My second writer couldn't produce more than 2 articles per week which is too low for my taste so I had to throw him away unfortunately. That's it. This is how I find cheap quality writers. Disclaimer: This isn't for those that want the best of the best article quality, I get great quality content for my authority sites with this method and I get 100K words for $600 which is extremely cheap. Also considering most of these are US, Canadian writers or people with great grammar at least. Also, try to tweak the price if you can. I haven't bothered to but I am sure there are good writers even at $5/1000 (0.5/100) or less! I hope this guide was useful. If you have tips, ideas and questions - don't hesitate to post them below!
