    I have had a few people PM about helping them find places to outsource. I will not give my favorite source but I will give other sources I did use until I got enough people to hire. It took me over a month to do find honest and good people to write real articles that I now hire through paypal. I have had many that are dead beats and do not do the work. Just get your escrow back and go onto the next writer

    I found scriptlance to be a good place to hire people.

    What to do. Open an account at scriptlance. You will have to get verified to use a papal account through scriptlance. There are also other ways to pay. Plan on a few days. You can interview coders while you get it verified after you have posted your job.

    What should go to in your job description?
    Tell them that you have a need of 20 (or how many you need) articles in the subject areas that AC has to offer. If they do a good job, you will have a lot more work for them to do. Give them a deadline and state the articles have to be in perfect English. Also, give them the cost of each article.

    Your response to writers. Only respond to people who actually read your job description. It shows that they care and do not just respond to a posting. You will know what I am talking about when you start receiving offers. Make sure they promise to meet the deadline etc. Even ask for an example.

    Now you found someone to hire. Ask when they are done with the first article to send you the article. You should make sure you are the same page of what you want the article to be like.

    When you get your articles, ask them to wait for 7 days to make sure they pass copyscape etc. You are really just going to upload them to AC. With having them write original content, I have had all my content accepted and have been paid very well. Now you pay them even if a couple did fail. You pretty much have to pay them because they did the work.

    Now, you are done with hiring from a site. Now you can have them write articles and pay them via paypal. Try to 5 to 10 people to write articles. Original content takes a few days.

    There is one problem with scriptlance, there is a $5 hiring fee that you have to pay.

    You can also try CL. I have not been very successful in posting in other countries. I guess I am not paying enough (for a good ROI you cannot).

    I would not use elance. Too expensive and you have pay $10 to start.

    There are many other sites similar to scriptlance. Google it or someone else post it here.

    NOW WHAT TO DO NEXT

    After you have got your articles accepted and paid for them. Spin the articles and sell them on other sites :). I just started this and it is working.

    Just remember, use AC as easy money to help with other bh ways

    Would you mind letting us in on how much per article you're paying? If you're outsourcing AC you must be paying less than $1.50 per article? What kind of quality are you getting? Any feedback would be most appreciated as I've just begun to search for decent writers in the $3.00 per 500 word area.

    Thanks

    beware in scriptlance, dont mention this is a long time work or have lot of work for the right person etc. scriptlance will suspend your account (happened to me 2 times) because you are going to give a job to them, not a work.. There is a job section in scriptlance if you want to use these terms and it is around 29$ fee..... Just use you have 100-400 articles needed to write....

    Now, also tell the writers that dont use "time" terms... example; last year, in the last 3 months, last summer, coming month etc.. I think you got this... AC will ask for "cite your sources" if your articles have some time terms...

    I am paying around 1.25$ for 425 word articles and it is pretty working...

    But I stopped AC for now because, AC asked me to submit w-9 form to continue.. AC dont like submitting more than 5-10 articles in a "week" in a non-us account....

    I have talked with a usa guy and he is willing to share his account with me at a 50-50 partnership.. He have to pay the taxes and he will submit the articles to AC....

    Find out anyone willing to this.. This will be a good thing instead of opening many accounts and going through the paypal things...

    All the best

    I am paying at most $1 an article. I do not think it is worth more than that. I found 2 people I trust to upload the articles for me. It does take a lot of time to upload the articles. It would be great to see a finished AC submitter.

    I have hired a couple of people with no ratings from countries like India and Pakistan that are really good. They write a lot better than me and you can see what country I am from. With original content, almost all of my articles are getting over 3 bucks. A lot of my articles are also getting traffic. I have yet to get paid for the over 20,000 views I have received.

    I have found about half the people I hire do not finish what is expected. I doubt they even start. Just get ready for that. In time though, you will find great people. It took me over a month to find some good quality writers. If you are lucky, you might get one from the US :).

    I did not know that with scriptlance. Thank you for the 411. I am glad I did not get in trouble for that. What I do not like about scriptlance is you have to pay the 5 dollars for a post. Their are better outsourcing sites out there too.

    mdmoney, yes, scriptlance suspended my account 2 times...
    But they will not ban you unless if you do some serious violation of their terms..
    If any suspends happen, interestingly you will not get any information from them what is the reason behind the suspension... you need to ask them that how you got suspended....

    just politely ask them what I have done etc.. Then they will reply within 24 hours with the info what you done there to get a suspension... Just make sure you understood those, and read again terms and just reply them you did not realized those things, and will not do it again.. (yeah, never do it again)...

    they will simply re-instate your account...

    How was the quality ManKat? Did you provide keywords and titles or just give them the subject?

    project4hire.com, if you are willing to do a little prrofreading, try some indian outsource companies many of these people speak pretty good english. If you are more interested in outsourcing in general, read the book 4 hour work week
