Check PM please.
Alright. I'm looking for multiple writers at the moment so there are still vacancies. PM me if you meet the requirements!
Add my friend on skype: biteoo.glp
He might help you ^^
Hiring a few more. Drop me a PM.
Your rate isn't high enough to attract the quality you want. I get the same rate from Textbroker, and they have orders available 24/7. No reason to take on another client and all the potential headaches that come with it for the rate you're offering. Also, asking for a resume while offering that rate is kind of funny. You do realize you're paying bottom of the barrel rates for a native speaker, right?
Just offering some perspective.
To the person who neg-repped me:
The purpose of the forum is to facilitate open communication. If the moderators don't want people speaking their minds in certain parts of the forum then they should make it a rule.
Then go there if you think you can get more there, no need to flame my thread. I've got tons of amazing writers that's already PMed me.
I honestly don't see what's so funny. Have a little more respect, will ya? If you post bullshit again I'll report you.
Sometimes people have nothing better to say in other people's threads than to talk bad about it. Usually offering no kind of significant value.
I wasn't flaming you, I was trying to help you. If you pay peanuts, you'll get monkeys. I acknowledge that advice wasn't asked for, but I've seen you posting this ad in here before. Your expectations aren't realistic.
Anyway, I was offering perspective on why you won't get good help for the rate you are offering. You are asking good writers to stick around with you long-term for a rate that will not entice them to do so. I was not being disrespectful to you. Are you a prince or princess? Some kind of royalty? If not, you're overreacting. Comically.
I'm not trolling you. Chill. Trust me, I didn't chase away any great writers that would have otherwise worked with you. That isn't how it works.
Asking for a resume when offering a cent and a half per word is funny because you will get laughed at by the people you're trying to hire. I suggest you go to one of the better online article boutiques and look at the going rates. Anyone who can give the level of quality you seem to want can make a lot more money there, and they know it. I also don't get why you just don't go Textbroker. The rate that you're willing to pay equates to their Level 3 rate, and you'll get decent writing for that.
Report away. If the mods ban me for speaking my mind then this isn't a forum I want to be a part of. I've provided a lot of value to this forum in a number of threads and if they'll ban me just because you choose to get mad about my post, then so be it.
While you felt the need to speak, it could've been in a more respectful and perhaps gentle tone. What I was unhappy about was the fact that you described poorly of me trying to hire people. A simple, non-egoistic statement of what you thought would've sufficed (albeit none was asked from you anyway). Perhaps implying that I underpay people. There are BST services here with 0.8$/100 words offering decent quality content. Yes, some people do get paid $3 per 100 words or more, and if you're good enough and can find someone willing to pay that amount, by all means go ahead. Otherwise, I'm offering people at a what I think is a reasonable rate.
What I'm paying is slightly more than what Level 4 authors get paid on TB. Please get your facts right. What you said as level 3 are what clients pay, which includes comission that TB charges per order. Since when did Textbroker set the pricing standards anyway? I don't go through third parties to get my articles done.
Also, you didn't post anything against the rules, so I would suggest you to drop the act. What I was implying on my other post was for you to stop flaming and attacking me. From my perspective, it looked like you were either jealous, angry or unhappy. Now perspectives differ, so there's no need to justify yourself here. Clearly you've changed your writing style to a more sensible, yet intrinsically flawed style in this post. I have more productive things to do than to argue with you here, so let's call it a day. If you didn't jump out of the bush attacking in the first place, I would've replied in a more civilized manner. And for the rude post above, I apologize.
Just to clarify for those that are interested. FuryKyle is a professional and will treat you as such. I submitted one of my articles to him in which he pinpointed out a few flaws that even I didn't catch originally.
Good luck in your search sir.
I d like to add to your post, I too am looking for a good content writer with the same qualifications..at the same rates,, which are by the way satisfactory for some good writiers.. they just have a knack and do them.. PM if any of you are interested,,
There are a ton of people hiring freelancers with what some seem to think is a low rate. Yet, they always find someone for the work...
If you think it's not worth your time, move on. Commenting isn't needed.
as much as i agree with codexehow i agree that furykyle can post whatever rate he wants. heck this is the hire a free lancer section, if he can't find anyone then he can adjust his price later.
I can do it but for $2/100 words. Any native English speaker can write articles all day for the rate you are offering on textbroker so I doubt you will get many native English speakers at that price.
Hi, I'm not a native writer. But have been working as a writer since 2008. Currently, I'm working at iWriter by brad callen. I am a premium writer there; wrote 500+ articles and maintained a rating of 4.41 out of 5. Let me know if I qualify considering my experiences. Thanks
Can you send me your contact? I'm new so i can't send pm.
