    Hi,

    I have a HUGE plan, and if it all fans out correctly, this could make a lot of money for me, and a constant flow of work for my workers, but I a concerned:

    If I was to use UK/US workers, they will leave me with barely any profit at all, so I am in need of some cheap workers, who actually don't mind working for small $$.

    What is the minimum rate I can find somebody from eastern countries? And where can I find such people?

    Thanks a lot :cool:

    Philipines, I'd estimate $300/month. You can hire them on Craigslist, in the city of Manilla, and country of the Philippines. Just don't screw them over. They work very hard for their money.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Just keep in mind, you get what you paid for. There are lots of talented and
    hardworking people in Philipines, but $300/month... in Manila... well...

    you can but 9 times out of 10 the work is crap. The saying is true that you get what you pay for. Now i have found a few workers that do a great job for a buck an hour but those are few and far between.

    Cheers mate, thanks for the input!

    Do you reckon they will write articles for $1 per 300 words? 10 articles per day = $10 = $300 per month!

    I used to have Indian/Philipino writers that would write/rewrite articles at $1 per 400-500 words. Read through the first 4-5 pages of this thread:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/associated-content-writing-articles/77524-made-30-two-articles-today.html

    I explain how I trained them etc. At the time I used the writers for AC but I'm sure some of the info will benefit your current project. Like I had mentioned in the thread, I had to weed out some crappy writers but was always able to find the "gold" who would write quality content at $1 per.

    Hi Im from the Philippines and although its true that there are very few good writer in English here I think a little system or method is all that is needed. After all we are not after literary pieces but just articles in plain decent English right? Perhaps I may be able to help in the search for a pool of writers. It may take a little time and effort but if it is for a long term project then I guess its worth looking into. thanks.

    Hey mate, this seems to be an interesting post. On a personal front, I have come across many writers who claim to be a writer but they don't even have basic grammatical knowledge but as http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/33736-redtide1969.htmlsaid we can always find a diamond in a coal mine. The task is mountainous but you can certainly give it a try. Even I used to have a heap of cheap writers but I had to teach them many things before they were ready to deliver articles. Moreover, there was always a fear that they would eventually abandon me after so much efforts, so I stopped hiring them. I wish you luck. Hope for the best.

    Hey I'm also from Philippines. I think 1$ for 300 words is good enough but I can not assure you that you'll get the best of it, try to increase the pay rate a little and you're good to go. Also make sure that you explain the payment very well because its the crucial factor to catch their attentions. PM me when you're ready, I'll be glad helping you out by spreading that program of yours. I know numerous monetizing forums in our country where you can get excellent and committed workers. :)

    In writing, one thing is for sure: you get what you pay for...There is a reason why some people are paid $20 per 500 words and some are paid $1 for the same number of words..

    Keep in mind that average salary up there is roughly 200$ USD per month.

    In my experience, finding cheap worker is pretty easy. The hard part is where you combine cheap and talented. You got to work hard to find those type of workers.

    You're better off using something like fiverr
    Even there, you need to do a lot of weeding out. You want to balance cheap with talent...because if they can't write at a basic level (and believe me, many simply can't), you're not going to make as much money.

    I´m also looking something like this, and if all goes well I think and start to earn money, one thing could raise the pay to the workers so they work happy and make a better effort.

    I'm a Filipino. You could actually avail of $1.00 writers here in the Phils but do not expect that they will provide you with a quality work or they would last long with you. If you are planning on outsourcing you might as well consider $3.00/400-500 word article. just my 2 cents. I could help you hire this guys if need be. PM me whenever you feel like it.
