    The price of an article depends on the quality of an article. These range from $5 to $50 for similar word count. What I want to know is how do these really differ from each other ? I'm assuming that none of the articles are spun. They are written by humans and are grammatically correct.

    When I want to write an article about a certain topic, I just search the net about that topic and find some articles that I like. Read them and carefully re-write them in my own words. I assume most people have a similar approach i.e research about the topic and then re-write a good article(s) that you like.

    Now if we consider that two people , one a well know figure and the another a beginner , write an article about the same topic, they ought to apply the same approach don't they? Or is it that the expert just writes things out of his own memory ?

    Does the expert have a certain flair to his writing that only comes with experience ? or is it just a placebo effect because of his authority ? Is it certain that an article of higher value will bring more traffic to your website or perhaps produce more sales ? or is it a gamble with an higher success rate ? Maybe it's because the expert does a little bit of more research and mentions credible sources or writes the articles following a certain format that is pleasing to read for the readers (Tips or how to posts) .Can it not happen that some people like the article written by the beginner more than the ones written by the expert?

    I'm just asking these things to improve my own writing ability and to know exactly the value I'm offering. :)

    It seems like you haven't tried cheap articles. All the articles I've got for under 10$ per 1000 words are complete bullshit. The grammar might be OK but the word order is crap, the expressions used are crap and the writer just doesn't know what he's really writing about. These cheap articles are like 80% meaningless filler content and 20% useful facts. They don't really convert anyone who understands English. The amount of meaningless content you delete after recieving the article leaves you with about 200 or 300 words of content that you can actually use and creating an article out of it will take a hour or two because you have to write so much extra.

    Basically buying cheaper stuff will cost you more in the end because of little amount of valuable content you get out of it and the time you have to put in it to have an actual OK article. Don't be an idiot and buy from other idiots.

    PS: I'm sure it's possible to get OK articles for that money but I'm just talking about my experience as a peasant.
