    Hi,
    I'd like to know how much do you pay per quality article (written by native speakers) for your site. I found some article writing services but they are too expensive for me.
    Thank you for your answers.

    You get what you pay for in the content industry. If you want Native English writers then
    yes it will cost more because the cost of living is more, however for an authority site or
    press releases its definitely worth it.

    Quality articles can't be cheap. If you pay $5 for your article, so don't expect original content with quotes, references and other supporting facts.

    For SEO use we pay .50 for 100w, but for clients sites we are going up to 5 usd per 100w.

    Try to look at iwriter service, sometimes you can get there really great articles and then save the writer for later.

    For quality work, I pay around 20 dollars an article or more. But, I prefer quality over quantity. All original, nicely researched context that ads value for my readers.

    If you want garbage that is spun then 5 dollars. But, in today's market how is that going to make you money ?

    For $30-80 an article I will start writing the most engaging articles that you have ever read... beside the fact I usually write my own article when I want SEO articles I usually pay anywhere from $4-5 per 500 words but when I purchase SEO articles I grab 10 or so and get a bulk discount.

    If you're looking for quality, don't consider the price too much as long as they can guarantee you the results of their write ups.

    Some pros earn $100/350 words.

    Dependant on the project, though I am currently paying $1.25 / $1.5 per 100 for US writers with masters degrees. The content provided so far, and samples provided, are of high quality being engaging, well argued and interesting. I have paid $8 for around 1k on BHW and was v.suprised at the quality. Similarly I've had seo filler content from here I didn't even use I thought it was that poor.

    Exact price depends on the writer's experience, your topic area, content requirements, the length of the article and its quality.

    If you are looking for high quality, trending, engaging articles written by native speakers, expect to pay at least $5/100 words.

    I will usually pay $20 to $30 for a quality article especially if it is going on my money site. For T1 articles, I stick to around $10 to $15. I try to get content that is at least 800+ words.

    If you can't write it yourself, you should definitely make sure you have good content. If you're lucky, you might be able to get away with $2.5 per 500 words, but don't be surprised, if you have some very bad articles. If you really want the best, you're looking at 4-5 dollars per article of 500 words.

    This is definitely worth it, since your visitors will be able to actually benefit from your content :p
