Is anyone doing this? Is it feasable?

    People don't just spend 3 years in college so they could earn such a low amount! They'd make more flipping burgers ffs!

    What should I do? Sensor the thing? I'd take action, but need just some feedback to see people doing it in the industry and weather it's feasible.

    Well, most graduates would take this opportunity with welcome hands here, looking at our unemployment rate, and proposed pay in my country is roughly the start-up salary for 2 years at least and enough for an okayish lifestyle.

    It doesn't work unless you hire non-natives. Then you have to spend a lot of time cleaning it up.

    You'll get lucky and find a native english writer who will work for 1.5 cents per word every now and then, but they won't stick around long.

    Good luck with that. It's Russian roulette. Your turnover rate will be insane and you'll waste a lot of time trying to recruit new writers on DigitalPoint.

    You call that a business plan? It's just words on a forum.

    Dude, if you can make it work, then do it. No one can give you a definite answer, if they could, they wouldn't. You need to address the risk yourself and make it happen.

    I've done this before, but it's a pain in the ass to handle people. If you're gonna do this make sure to hire a proofreader too.
