Hey everyone! My name is Youssef and I?ve been in the internet marketing game since 2008 (joined BHW the same year). I realize there are dozens of content writing services here with hugely varying quality and prices so the first thought you?re probably having now is: okay, this is the 50th service I?ve looked at today, how are you different? That is why the main focus of this sales thread is to give you: 10 reasons you should choose me. And no, these aren?t some ?template? benefits. These reasons are the result of researching over 30 article writing services here at BHW, taking notes of each of their unique offerings and price points, and thinking about how I could offer something different. Before I started this thread I PMed a handful of mods and highly reputable members to not only review my service, but also suggest fair price points for the quality I provide. I wanted to know if there?s a place for me among all the competition. You?ll find their reviews quoted below (more reviews will gradually be quoted here as members submit them). Ultimately, this service aims to have you copy/paste your content to its final resting place without touching a letter, while you?re smiling and thinking: I just couldn?t have done it better myself! And believe me when I say, this comes from a guy that firmly believes in the ?If you want something done right, do it yourself? quote. So if you?re looking for the $1/100 words service, sorry this just isn?t it. I respect these services and understand their content has its uses and they have a large customer base. It?s just not what I provide here. So let?s hop into the WHY, then see what some top members here think about the service 1) I actually care. That?s easy for a lot of sellers to say but well, actions speak louder than words. For me, getting a writing gig is not just about perfectly researching, brainstorming and writing content but actually understanding the context in which it?ll be used. ?I care? means no filler words to hit the word count, no awkward sentences that don?t make any sense, and no misplaced, super complex words to show off my ?incredible? vocabulary skills. Lots of writers put the articles quickly together for the sake of speed and as long as you don?t complain (even if you?re not 100% happy), they consider all is well and move on to the next gig in line. They want you NOT to be unhappy. I want you to be happy. Big difference. 2) The Right Tone / Personality. First person, third person, formal, informal. You name it. Want the writer?s personality to be highly visible and dominant? No problem. Want personal opinions and personality to fade away in the shadows while presenting scientific facts or serious topics? You got it. What I do isn?t just researching content online and ?linking? sentences together. I take a holistic approach in evaluating the whole article as a unified ?experience? that the reader smoothly walks through and explores. 3) Your Readers? Needs & Your Goals Met & Achieved. What is the purpose of this content? Will there be affiliate links incorporated? Or perhaps it?ll just be monetized via Adsense. Or, maybe there?s a call to action button at the bottom of the article that leads to your pricing page. Do your readers? interests align with yours? Are they getting the experience they?re expecting when landing on your article? All of these questions are crucial in shaping the final, polished article or as I like to call it, ?experience?. 4) Marketing & Writing Expertise - ?Fused?. Not all writers are marketers and not all marketers are writers. This is why you folks, the marketers, hire us, the writers. Sometimes it?s just because you don?t have the time to write yourself, but often because you can?t or you just plain hate writing. The problem here lies in communicating your marketing needs to your writer. Since I?m one of you guys (marketer! ) before being a writer, this is not a problem. Throw at me marketing mumbo jumbo like PPC, PPV, Adsense, Clickbank, Advertorial, CPA..etc and I?ll eat away at it without breaking a sweat. Notice that I?ve deliberately used ?fused? and not ?mixed? or ?combined? to stress the fact that both of these skills/perspectives are utilized and factored in with every single word written. 5) Proper Use of Headings/Subheadings. I believe this one?s often overlooked by other writers. It?s rare these days to see an article on a reputable website written paragraph after paragraph after paragraph, with paragraphing being the only structure there is. If you want your article that way, then there?s no problem there obviously but otherwise; I make sure to add different subheadings to highlight the main topic of each paragraph or multiple paragraphs, in order to help smoothly shift the reader?s focus to the upcoming content and maintain easy digestibility. 6) If I Miss a Deadline, I?m Probably Dead. Look, I?ll be honest. I don?t like excuses. Yes, we?re human, things happen. I could have a family emergency. I?ll tell you about it. You?ll sympathize, you?d support me, but does that get your work done? No. Doesn?t that hurt your business? Yes. So here?s what I can promise: I miss a deadline without prior notice, I?ll give you your full money back with absolutely NO questions asked. If your work will be delayed and we haven?t reached the deadline yet, I?ll alert you; at which case you will have the full right to either receive an instant refund or wait for your order. Believe it or not, I never spend a cent of client?s money before the client signs off on the work. This means even if it?s a multi-thousand dollar order, I?ll have no problem refunding in a snap. It?s not my money until your order is delivered and you?re happy. 7) I Fly Solo. Absolutely No Outsourcing. Let?s be honest, no matter how good your quality control is, when working with a team of writers you can never achieve the level of consistency a single person can achieve. Why? Simply because they?re different people, different personalities, different styles (unless you train them to have all that removed and make them ?robotic writers?). Having your own ?team? is awesome for scalability but has a lot of negatives. You always have to communicate with a middleman who then communicates back to your writer who then misunderstands, asks further questions to the middleman who then? you get the idea. It?s also easy to outsource for cheap and sell here at BHW at higher prices. In this case it?s not your ?team?, it?s outsourcing. In my dictionary those are pretty distinct terms. 8) I?m Not Afraid to Say No. It?s not easy to say no to money. Unfortunately a lot of writers no matter how overworked, tired or stressed they are, keep taking on gigs. Some writers know that a certain topic will be extremely tough to research and require a professional in the field to deliver the quality needed, yet they still fail to say no. I don?t. I realize this may frustrate some clients but believe me this is always in your best interest. Hell, when this happens, if I know another writer that can take the job, I?ll recommend him/her myself. 9) I Don?t Put ?Good Spelling & Grammar? as a Service Benefit. Every service or product has its price points and target audience. If you?re reviewing my thread then you?re looking at one of the higher-end services. If I fill the thread here with things like ?good spelling & grammar?, and ?passes copyscape? then I?d be insulting you. Totally not bashing the other service providers at all. Some like to ensure they?ve covered all the bases so they include these benefits and I can?t blame them. I just don?t because I think that, at the price you?re paying for my service, this should be taken for granted. 10) I Don?t Count Words. Well, I do. But, nothing like how you?re used to. If you pay for 500 words, unless you specifically ask that you do not want that word count to be exceeded, I actually do not count the words while I?m in the middle of writing the article. Why? So as not to be inclined to ?chop off? the article as soon as I hit the word count. I only try to estimate the word count with my eyes and use a counter when I?m completely done. This works out to be completely in your favor. The review articles? word counts were: 706, 768, 1005, 747, 578, 841 and 769, and they were all supposed to be 500 words. And no, that did not happen because they were ?reviews?. This should not mean, in anyway, that you should expect more than 500 words for the price you pay. It guarantees, however, that your article only ends when it makes sense for it to end, not because I want to quickly move on to the next gig. Since it?s next to impossible to write EXACTLY 500 words, you?ll almost always get more, but you?ll never get less. Pricing My pricing policy is simple: - $10 per 500 words "normal" content. $15 per 500 words "in-depth research" content. - Normal content: Content that can be written with minimal research from external websites and resources. Common topics, articles that aren't based on lots of facts..etc. - In-depth research content is content that requires an adequate amount of research to be written. Example: product reviews, argumentative articles, tutorials...etc. If you're unsure which category your required content fits in, please get in touch first. - Minimum order is $10. - Pricing above assumes article/blog post format. For other types of content please get in touch first. - I'm limited in capacity so I do not offer bulk discounts at this time (However, I gladly do bulk orders within reason). - Long-term clients have a special place in my heart. Get in touch for long-term deals. - Please note that prices may change anytime depending on demand and my workload, without prior notice. Samples Since this sales letter itself is rather lengthy, you can consider it a sample (Since I wrote it all and I?ll be the one writing your content). Besides if it convinced you to try me out, that's good sign, right? - If you need other samples, simply request them on my website and I?ll email them to you once I see the request. This is to streamline the process and make it as efficient as possible. - Please note that I cannot accommodate requests for samples in different niches due to client agreements. Samples I send are mostly either things I wrote for my own use or one of the review articles (with consent from the reviewer). - Note that requesting samples on my website DOES NOT add you into any kind of newsletter or database. The form simply sends me an email which I reply to. At no point will you receive any further contact from me unless you respond to the sample email/order articles. Reviews As I said earlier I got in touch with a handful of reputable members to review my service prior to thread approval and moderator reviews. For this reason I will not be giving out any more reviews so please do not ask. I?ve quoted all the reviews I received from members below (more to be quoted as they are submitted). Order Process I always HIGHLY encourage you to have a quick chit chat or drop me a very quick email before proceeding with a payment. Again, as I write everything myself, it?s always good to make sure that I?m not overloaded and ready for your order before you go ahead with it. In the event you send a payment and I cannot proceed with your order, no worries! Your refund will be swift, but let?s try to avoid the hassle of refunds, can we? Just drop me a 1 or two liner email that goes like ?Youssef I want to order x number of articles about so and so for the purpose of so and so?? I?ll usually confirm within minutes or hours at most. If it takes more than a couple of hours then I?m probably sleeping. 1) (recommended but optional) Drop me a quick email (fastest way) or chat on skype. 2) Pay the amount due through this link. (PayPal only at this time). 3) Fill in your order details through this link. 4) Confirm your order here in the thread. (Please don?t PM as I don?t check PMs as often!) 5) I will confirm your order as soon as I see it and schedule it. 6) Your order is delivered! (I like to deliver using Google Docs, if you need something different please let me know). Getting in Touch The fastest and most recommended way to get in touch is by email, followed by live chat on my website (there?s only me there! ) and finally skype. PMs here are really hard to manage and track business on, so please avoid them unless it?s unrelated to business. FAQ Are you a native English speaker? Do you care? Sorry, kidding. I still can?t wrap my mind around how ?native? is used around here. There?s the ?native-looking?, ?native-sounding? and the ?natively-read?. To be honest, I only define it one way. Native = English is my first language. And to answer that, no, English isn?t my first language. However, as a child I went to a school that prohibited speaking with our native tongue on its grounds so I may not be a native speaker, but I?m pretty much the closest you can possibly get without the ?official? title. Can I have a review/ I want to see samples? Reviews are already out and samples can be requested through this link. Please read above for more information. Kindly do not post in the thread asking for samples or free reviews. Do you write for any niche? Most niches yes, I do not write anything related to these niches though: Adult, gambling, illegal content, recipes and highly technical topics that require an expert in the field. Of course I do not have every niche imaginable in my head, and there may be some more niches I can?t work with (likely a rare case though). This is why I always encourage you to drop me an email or have a quick chat with me before placing an order. Do you write product reviews, sales letters, PRs?etc? Prices quoted here are for regular article/blog post styled content. If you need anything different, please get in touch. I?m happy to accommodate most requests. If we take product reviews as an example, however, they are treated as "in-depth research" content and charged at the "in-depth research" content rate. What?s your refund policy? I?ll refund 100% of your money on work I have not delivered on the agreed time. If I anticipate a delay and you agree to it, then work will be delivered normally with no refunds. Please keep the thread for questions and order confirmations. Reviews are already out. For samples, please request them here.The fastest way to get in touch is through email or live chat!
