    Hey guys, I need to start writing on my blog. I don't really have the best experience hiring article writers. What should I pay for 1500 word articles in native English that would be good for search engines? Anybody recommend what websites I should use. I tried BHW and some are great but some have horrible grammar.

    It can start from $1 to as high as $10 per 100 words. The hard part is finding the perfect writer for a good price, which I haven't found yet lol

    It can go a lot higher than that, too. I met writers that charge 10 dollars per word. And I am convinced there are plenty of writers who go over that prices, too.

    For the OP: Aim to get the best price/quality ratio. You can easily sort through the pool of writers by taking look at the samples and prices they are charging. A good writer that can write on a high level and produce content that will satisfy a reader and search engines can't be found at prices below $1 per 100 words. Anyone who quotes less can easily be eliminated because you instantly realize how much they value their time and their writing.

    I will definitely go with writers who are established and who charge anywhere between $2 and $5 per 100 words. I would go with an individual writer rather than an agency because quality tends to fluctuate less.

    Depends on your budget. I charge 5-10 cents per 100 words for BHW clients, and $1-$1.25 per word for my other clients. I'm far outside of a lot of people's budget but well within the budget of my clients.

    So OP, figure out how much you're willing to spend and what the writer's qualifications have to be, then go from there. Also get a niche writer, if possible. Your content will be far more convincing and engaging than something written by a general writer.

    Do you offer a promotion for a million words? At that rate, I can fill up a site well.

    Thanks everyone! This is why I hate asking for prices for things like content. Everyone comes out of the woodwork to offer your their service.

    And I charge what I want. Unlike you, I'm not scrambling for clients.

    Don't insult writers that charge more than you just bc your English and writing skills aren't good enough to get those prices. You really think people don't make more than $1 per 1000 words?

    Look up commercial writers. One project is, at minimum, $50,000. Most are in a high six-figure range. And they have no trouble landing clients. In fact, they beat them off with a stick.

    Check out Carol Tice. She has written for big brands for no less than $1 a word.

    I consistantly write white papers for clients for $1000 per page. So you go ahead and charge $1 per 1000 words. You aren't hurting me in the slightest.

    Hi, @Quit925today. Being a native English-speaking writer does not always guarantee desirable writing style.

    A non-native English-speaking niche writer can outperform an English-speaking general writer.

    On the other hand, I agree that there are collaquials that are best used and interpreted appropriately by native English-speaking writers.

    There are pros and cons. Like what the other BHW has said, you need to try your best to strike a good price-to-quality ratio.

    I suggest that you look or ask for the content provider's customer reviews. The reviews must be have a timestamp so you will know if that provider actively receives testimonials from his or her customers or not. Fave reviews do not have a timestamp and the reviewer's identity (e.g. name, website) usually.

    Also, interview the content provider via chat on Skype. You will see the provider's grammar and writing style through chat.

    Finally, do not ask for the "standard price" per article or per word because there is no such thing as a standard price for someone else's value for his or her time and talent. Some are willing to work for free. Some put a price tag that it seems like they don't want to sell their service anymore because of their higher-than-expected rates.

    The best thing you can do is to check the Marketplace section of the forum, find the threads with the most number of customer reviews, and try the service of the top 3 to 5 providers you've ranked. That's just it.

    Satisfaction on someone else's service is personal. You can't always take someone else's review on some else's service as an absolute barometer. Some clients can be easily satisfied while some cannot be satisfied with anything on this planet.

    You'll never know what you're getting or losing unless you try it for yourself.

    I hope that helps. :)
