    I'm considering forking out some money here and there to buy some articles. But am just curious to know what article writers are capable of. Like if I had a list of like 30 amazon products. Would they be able to write a unique review for each one of them or something? Is that something they would regularly do?

    Or... not even sure if that would be considered "buying an article"..

    Sure, your average writer here in the Marketplace can do that for you. That is probably a common request.

    It depends on who you'll hire. To be honest, I myself haven't had a lot of good experiences buying articles. Most of the time the writers will promise that they'll write a quality article, but end up sending you a piece of useless text that doesn't even make a lot of sense and seems to be written by somebody who doesn't even speak English very well.

    You can ask writer for demo article. If you like content, give him order.

    Always ask for a sample at least.

    For amazon reviews you can probably get by with less than perfect content. If something goes on your website though you would want it to be perfect, otherwise a human-review is going to smack your site hard.

    Guys, I don't know from whom or from where you were getting your orders, but I can say with utmost certainty that not all of the writers here are bad. Some are bad, while others are even worse, however, that doesn't have to mean the general writer population is just plain bad. (Even non-native English writers like myself can write quality material.)

    Anyhow, hit me up for some content writing if the offer still stands. I can offer you a 200 word free writing sample or provide samples from my previous work on almost any given subject.

    I would say you would be able to find someone who is able to write unique articles for you for the products of your choice, yes. That is what many freelancers do is create unique work for the people that hire them. I would take a look around, look at reviews and pick out the best ones but also ask for a sample of their work before giving any money to ensure it's what you are looking for.

    Looking on the top freelance websites would be your best bet for this. Places like Fiverr are good but you will not get top quality work from somewhere like that. Always check reviews and ask for sample work before buying or making a commitment.

    Any freelancer would be able to do this kind of work for you, it's wise to be careful who you hire to be sure that you are getting good quality so looking on places like Freelancer may be better than going to places like Fiverr. Sample work is a must when hiring anyone.

    First of all you should ask for some sample articles and if you satisfied with his sample articles after that you should start work with a small order.
