Hey all. This isn't really groundbreaking information or anything but I still wanted to share. I was able to find good, college educated writers for $6 per 500 words on craigslist and indeed.com. You get $50 free at indeed.com and Craigslist is free too. I got probably 30 applicants from these two places. I offer them 10-20 articles a month at $6 per article. Some take the deal some don't - they're choice. I put the article on one of my sites or sell it on a different site. The best rate I could get with non-native speaking writers was around $3-$4 per 500 words on Odesk, so I'm good paying a few bucks more for a good American writer. Just wanted to let everyone know that people are actually willing to write for this cheap in America and if you need some content Craigslist and Indeed are good places to find writers for cheap. Peace.
