How much are you willing to spend per 500 word article?
I got one. She is native speaker and excellent in what she is doing. PM me, I can give you her skype adress.
I dont know the market too well. $20, maybe more.
lol For a professional, you'll pay between $75-$150 for an article. For sales content, you'll pay double that at least. For a standard blaahg article, I would aim to pay someone $100 and then they can spend some time on your article.
Anyway, you want to find an expert in the field. They ain't gonna get out of bed for $20, but that's what you need. Stick to US/Canada/UK. Ask them a few questions, and you'll be able to pick up if they aren't really a native writer. Ask for a background. For instance, if you want a real expert in food, maybe find a chef. Believe it or not, there are experts like that who like to write content.
Can you give us a budget that you have? And how many words would you like the content to be? Supply more info for those that are interested.
You can find that at the top shelf
Recently I saw this site, didn't tried it though
You're going to have to pay a little more money than you usually do..
Finally someone gets it. People act like I'm talking Chinese when I tell them I have writers that get $800+ for a 2,500 - 3,000 word article. Quality content is NOT cheap. At all.
Thanks to texting lingo, horrible grammar and lack of spelling ability content writers can make a shit load of money. It is only going to get more lucrative.
I don't know why someone will play with shitty content on their sales pages and then wonder why no one buys?? WTF??? Sales content is your bread and butter.
Also, when you pay someone for a day, you get their entire day strictly on your article. They can take the time to get some good stats, do something different, work with revisions, proof, edit, etc. You pay $5 for an article and you get someone who just wants to spit out whatever to move on to the next filler article.
I'm trying out a new customer this month. Bonus if I make goals is $3500, so I want to kick ass on their content. <~~ that's what you want your writer to think
well there is something in between $3 for 500 words crap and $800 you mentioned... this is the sweet spot I am looking for.
Yeah $20 is too low for the type of content I believe you are looking for. For crap people actually want to read (ie written by someone knowledgeable) you would probably have to start at around $50-75 range and then more of course depending on what niche.
thats ok for me. I was just not sure how the market looks like. I am willing to spend around $50 if that is necessary. Any suggestions for places where I can find hq writers?
A good writer requires years of study, practice and tons of research and English knowledge. You don't get that for cheap. Good writers are the core of most famous sites and newspapers and they make hundreds of millions of U$: enough said.
First of all, $20 per 500 words isn't a bad budget at all. I'm sure you've used most of those $3-$5 per 500 words services. Essentially, what a writer does is, takes the topic from you, researches about it, then writes an article. Given that (s)he's an experienced writer, the more you spend, the more research will be done before/during writing the article. Around $15-25 is really the sweet spot for high quality content that flows well and makes sense.
There are a few amazing writers in the Content/Copywriting section of this forum that you can try: TextBoss, GreenGoblin, Darknight, Aluminium.
I personally started using a guy I found on Facebook who has a HUGE team of native writers from around the world. Honestly, he takes quite a bit of time to deliver articles (say around 9-10 days on average), but the research that his team puts behind each article is really pleasing to see. You will seldom find writers who'd deeply research before writing an article, and even link to relevant high-authority sites. Just like those articles you see on a real authority site like LiveStrong or Goal.com. And, the good thing is, he doesn't cost too much either. In fact, less than the writers I've mentioned above. So, I've started planning about content ideas early and using him more and more for my money sites. If you want his FB profile link, shoot me a PM.
Looks like a solid service. Might try it out though!
Yes, high quality well written English is valuable content
It's not $75 to $100 loooool. I have an American woman who writes for eHow and Examiner writing for me and it's only around $20 for 500 words.
You won't find anything good on Fiverr or iWriter ever.
Right. And you probably have a bored housewife or single mom who has no expertise in anything. Ehow and Examiner aren't very impressive. A 3 year old can write for those people. You're talking about people who had dozens of articles on "how to make grilled cheese."
I've written for both of them. It's just junk web spam getting thrown out there. When was the last time you saw ehow or examiner rank for anything?
