    Hi Colin,
    Check out the Warriors for hire section in this forum as there are many of us listed. It's one of the best ways to find the right people.

    You can also try iwriter. They allow you to reject the article if you don't like it.
    I still mean to try them - just too much going on right now. Once you find writer that you like, you can post projects directly to them.

    Here or on the freelance sites or even copywriting pages on Facebook too.

    There are heaps of people who are quality writers (not churn and burn) that are available that understand quality is better than quantity.

    Good luck.

    You can look at, getafreelancer. Or, you can see. If you can find someone, on Fivver. Just check their, comments. To see. How they did with other people, that hired them. For a project.

    I'd be really wary of sites like Fiverr and Upwork, a lot of their writers are paid very little and the quality of their work is reflected in this. If Google doesn't bring you up and results in your area there are some really useful groups on Facebook which are private and so all the members are vetted before they're accepted which means you only get genuine quality copywriters in there. Many of those have a jobs board where you can advertise your jobs and members can apply.
    Where are you based?

    Upwork is pretty good. I've used them over and over with great results. Good luck.

    There is really no correct site. Just look at their ratings and reviews from user clients before using their services. If you find a good one, remember to write it down so you know what has worked for you before.

  • Colin, as long as you know what you need and how much you're prepared to pay for our services.

    My writing is well-researched, reader- and SEO-friendly, and it will pass Copyscape. I'm a business coach, copywriter and social media consultant. Trained by AWAI, I specialise in B2B and B2C copywriting using gamification principles and tricks of the trade learned from the best - I'm enrolled in Ray Edwards' Copywriting Academy.

    It takes time and skills to do the research (target market, keywords, competition - even if I get all the information from a client I like to quickly check what's going on just to have the feel and see what other people are doing).

    And still, I hear from people who offer $20 for a 1500-word article (or a "product description that sales*") and think it's a lot of money because they can get it for $5. And they need it now.

    * I know that should be "sells", I copied that from a post, someone needed a copywriter to write product descriptions
