    Hello, I plan to hire a part time / full time article writer, but I have no idea how many article can they write in a day to get a bang of my buck.

    From my experience, worker usually quote lower amount than they can do in a day. So I would like to ask any BHW to help me out.

    assuming they write General article only. If they write XXX words of article. How many can they write in a day?
    FOR example:
    450 - 500 words.
    300 - 350 words.
    1000+- words.
    2000+- words.

    I'm a writer. It really depends on how much research is needed. Typically, I could pump out a lot of articles in a day time frame. In the 450-500 range, I could possibly do 30+. It goes down from there.

    Good luck!

    It's not possible to say... I know people who can write 30-40 articles in few hours and there are also some people who take 8 hrs and write 12-15 articles... It depends upon person, domain knowledge, writing speed, thought process... blah blah...

    No two person can be same so just ask writer how many articles he/she can do in a day then calculate cost and judge if it's worth or not.

    I'm a writer. It depends on a lot of different factors. And understand, how many articles a writer CAN write is very different than how many they WILL or SHOULD write.

    I type 100 words a minute. I've written over 134,000 words in a day before...divided among 450 articles. Well, I say 'day'--it was, in reality, 20 hours spread over two days, but one waking period.

    Would not... do that... again.

    I keep my projected rate to about 50 words a minute when I budget for time, and try not to take on loads of any more than 50,000 words in a day. After that I burn out.

    I can write about 10 in a day if I push it. That seems slow until you figure in that I now get $20 for 400 words.

    Quality takes time.

    wow, 30+ a day, but can you do it consistently for every weekdays?

    eh, wassup dude?

    Alright! so It is really depend on an individual basis.

    are you saying you can write 120 general article based on 500 words a day? that is really a lot. I wonder those writer pay by hours will they write this kind of speed for me?

    Oh, I am planning to outsource my article on hourly basis...
    like to the part timer / full time philippine writer?

    $20 for 400words.. wow!
    I am more towards article marketing not content article.
    I do outsourced before for content article for 2k words for USD 50.
