    This is like the biggest challenge, because here in the bhw section any good writer is going for $3/100 words which is super expensive.

    Ideally I would like to pay $1-$1.25/100 words, and because I need like 50,000 words. Any suggestions? I tried upwork but that has not been good.

    If you want quality you have to pay more, simple as that.

    Most of the BHW services act like middle men and they keep a good chunk and leave the rest to the person who work on your project. A hard, but good option is to hire writers directly, either locally or from Upwork.

    Just my 2c, but It's worth every cent IMO. I've tried writing articles myself & I suck at it so I'm happy to pay for good quality.

    It's up to you to put everything else in place to make that 'Investment' give you a good return.

    It is as simple as that.

    You want good content, you need to pay for it.

    For a PBN with 10, 20, 200 sites, yeah, you're going to look for cheap content (been there, done that). You'd end up paying many hundreds, even thousands, of dollars for great content for many sites, and it wouldn't be worth the investment.

    But for ONE money site? You need good content. It's not just about ranking, it's about converting. Any visitor who sees crap content isn't going to pull out their credit card and turn that information over to the site owner.

    For a money site, at the VERY LEAST pay for great content on the home page. You need to convince a visitor you're a real site and you need to make the visitor feel your product is worth buying - from you.

    I write it myself.

    I don't suck at writing content.

    And I charge my clients much more than 3 cents a word. They don't mind paying for it, bc they recognize real quality isn't cheap.

    So either learn to write it yourself, spend your time wasting money trying to find a cheap writer that is going to stay cheap and not get burnt out, or fork over the money.

    I tried getting good writing for cheap (not very hard though) - but I could see I would never get it good enough for my money site.

    I write all my content for my money site and I scrap for my tier 2. I'll have to get a writer eventually but can't afford a good one right now.

    So... if you can pay - pay. If you can't do it yourself.

    Just curious - why 50,000 words?

    There are plenty of good writers on both here and places like Upwork, but I prefer to deal direct so you're not paying an agency fees, so you'll get a better rate.

    Cause I want to start a authority website, sort of done with niche websites.

    Yea, some. But About writing content for yourself, no doubt if you can't pay you have to do it yourself. Unfortunately I just can't write articles. So instead of wasting time I would rather start hunting article writers so I can start to get the work done.

    Does anyone write satire or satirical news stories on here or is it different type of writing?

    Look OP, I don't believe people should ever - and I mean EVER - buy cheap content. I'm a writer and I used to work for peanuts. I am never doing that again.

    However, I do understand you are on a budget.

    So I'm going to see if I can have a writer from here contact you. I recommended him to another client who needed budget writers and they loved him.

    I hope he makes the cut for you, but if he doesn't, at least I tried.

    Edit: Before anyone else asks, no, I will not give you contact info or have the writer contact you. I don't normally do this, but OP is a senior member here and I've always liked his name and icon.

    If you live in the US, and near a university or community college you can hire students quite cheaply. You can easily get $5/100 quality for $1.50/100 if you find the right student and buy in bulk. I have a feeling this is what many sellers do before markup.
