    Hey guys,
    Looking for a decent (doesnt have to make me drool) and affordable (cant empty my wallet) copywriter on here. Was hoping you guys could make some recommendations?
    Rules
    1) Please dont PM me with "i are l337 copywriter! gibb3 me h1r3 plzz!!11!111"
    2) Dont do (1) on this thread either

    Im looking for people who use someone who can recommend them :) My regular copywriter is to busy to take on the odd job anymore, so looking for a replacement writer for my odd site launch.

    I would fall under the decent category I do believe, if not better.
    Also, give me a figure within your budget and we will work something out.

    My iTrader reviews show what others think of my quality as well.

    PM me here, or feel free to message me on Skype.

    Hiring copywriters.. Always a hard thing to do..

    One thing to keep in mind is the following.. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!

    My advice would be to pay $300 on top of the $300 the person is asking in
    thread shared by mikeoff. $300 is not much money for a copy and the asking
    price often resembles the quality when it comes to copy writing.

    I do copywriting for some people and I never go below $1k but do keep my
    clients on.. adding stuff or deleting stuff over-time to increase conversion.

    A good copywriter for $300 is a steal.. I have seen quotes of $5000 + for some projects.

    But what says he is a good copy writer? A good copywriter would never go as low as $300. TRUST ME they will not.

    On the contrary, a copywriter just starting out, or from a different economy may well consider 300 a good price.

    I have build websites for nothing, or $50, in the past. I don't do it now, because I have customers who believe my rates are fair. I see SEO here on the forum so cheap that I will not even try to compete. But my SEO customers pay my rates, because they believe I am worth it.

    It's all a matter of perspective and economics. If my wife needs meds and I need $100 for them I do not have, I will build $50 websites again.

    I do not disagree that you cannot find a gifted copywriter in the US for $300, and many other countries as well.
