    Depends on where you live or where you outsource your work. In most western countries that won't be enough. Just ask yourself if $2000 a month is enough to pay 3 employees, rent and keep some money for yourself!

    Hey thanks for the suggestion i am from India, i planning to give 200$ per person, for 3 person i have to pay $600. + $100 rent + $100 other expenses, So Do you think $3 per 500 word is a nice price to get attraction from buyers and get lots of orders.

    I found this thread while checking your posts. Can you update about the progress of this project ? Did you start it yet ?

    You shouldn't rush into renting an office. Take it slow. At first find your copiwriters, give them a probation period and use this time to test your strategy.

    Hi

    Well since I already run this business, I might be in a good position to advice. Your rates are definitely good from a company's perspective, but here's the catch. When you hire a staff on a monthly pay, that's a fixed overhead you need to bear, whether you have work or not. In such moments earning $3 per 500 words for contingent projects might sound impracticable at some occasions. Secondly, hired monthly writers might not be expert at every niche, that might be a concern to your clients. Clients expect expertise, whatever you pay rate may be. All rounder writers might be good, but they don't really specialize in any subject most of the time. And lastly, with all that work and minimal staff, you'll have editorial problems. Your staff will be more focused towards 'delivering the product', instead of 'delivering the RIGHT product'. After writing an article, it is only natural to have an exhausted mind. It is always wise to have an editor looking over the work of other writers, instead of making them proofread themselves.

    This wasn't meant to demotivate you, but what I'm trying to get at is, for a business with writers as a permanent staff on a small scale, it is best to try out for websites that sell articles. You can get 2.5$ for 500 words in that. You writers can keep on writing good stuff daily and putting it up on your website. Market it well , and you'll probably start earning a good amount, enough to expand your staff and start offering bespoke content development service.

    If you're ever looking for any suggestions or advice, feel free to reach me out over PM, over my site laurav.hol.es or via my linkedin mentioned there. I'm a seasoned author and would be ever so willing to help. :)
