    I know this seems kind dumb but I need help with the buyer instructions. I'm writing articles and all I can figure asking for is the keywords that want me to use. I was thinking of having them create an outline so it would make it easier for me to write and they would defiantly get what they are paying for. What do you guys think?

    I ask for sample titles, the website URL, specific niche and keywords for gigs that I need to create articles for.

    Ask for the keyword as a minimum, then style (review, technical article) etc.

    I hate it when I pay for a 500 word article, then they ask for 100 words of instructions :/

    Ask them for a sample of an article they really like (or a link to a live article). Clients have different preferences in terms of style, tone, etc.

    Just look at what other sellers are doing and implement something similar.

    For me, i only ask for keywords and website url.
    Most buyers wouldn't want to see a service where they will be creating outlines.
    They are hiring writing service and they expect the writers to make the article look all good with how it flows.
    What I think is asking for article out line is big no.
    You can alternatively ask for any specific note for the articles and that would be just great.
