    Ok so I followed this guide here on the forums titled "[Guide] How I find writers for $0.6/100" to find cheap article writers.

    To my surprise this doesn't work very well for more complex articles. I paid 4 different sellers $5 to test quality and they where all just spun content. I'm looking for in depth research on consumer tech in order to compare them against each other. For example the iPhone 6 vs the Galaxy s7 I want to compare them using statistics that are published on the web. I'm looking to compare things that usually aren't touched on in reviews like common issues with the device reported on forums or customer satisfaction statistics. I'm not actually looking for articles just data. Also by in depth I mean really in depth, not stuff you can find on the first page on Google. I'm trying to make it informative like Vsuace for example.

    Any methods for finding something this specific or how much it will cost?

    This is a definite "you get what you pay for" situation. At dirt cheap prices, those writers aren't sufficiently incentivized to produce well-researched, engaging content.

    I've had good luck at Upwork. You really need to have an eye for talent, ask for samples, be clear in your description, and relatively patient in finding the right person. I could spend a week or so finding the right person for an assignment, because contrary to what some people push (and I'm sure you're aware of) - content matters. I usually pay about $10 per 1,000 words.

    Quality or cheap contents?

    Good quality writers do not deal with $ per words, only real quality contents that matter most.

    Good luck.

    "How I find writers for $0.6/100"

    You can't, you won't!

    I'm a great writer and I wouldn't get out of bed for burger flipping money. Would you?

    Everyone's so quick to judge that "[Guide] How I find writers for $0.6/100 words" thread without even trying it.

    I thought it was BS too at first, but then I went to Upwork and made a job listing trying it out.

    In the very first job post I found a recent college graduate from Washington who was willing to write the 1000 words for $6 in exchange for the money and a positive rating on a popular health topic. That's the key to making it work, you have to make it apparent you're looking for someone with good English in the US/UK/CAN/AUS,etc. whose willing to work for less for a good rating. (if we are all referring to the same thread.)

    It's hard for people with no ratings to land jobs on freelance sites that align with what they're worth. And that's where we come in :D

    And of course this won't work on Fiverr. Upwork and Elance only for me.

    Well people around here would work for 60c / 100 words. Granted they may not be American but most do English as a first or close second language.

    For 6$ per article, you will not get the experienced ones. So, the key here is how to educate them to write as per your requirements. If you have done that, you might have got what you want. But, it all depends on the same thing "You Get What You Pay For"....You may get some golden nuggets here and there but having a content company, i can say that you need to have lots of patience to get those nuggets..

    i tried seoclerks and it turned out ok. ordered a service which had 20 articles for under 10 dollars and about 5 turned out ok. i had to do a little editing to make them work but they work just fine. I only trust about 2 guys on Fiverr out of about 100 or so when it comes to SEO related stuff.

    Remember the Rule of Two-Thirds.

    Price | Quality | Turn-Around-Time

    Often, when buying services, you must choose between 2 of the 3, but rarely will you get all.

    You can always ask for the previous work samples
