    So you want a good, reliable person to write 300 word articles for less than $2.00? I am not going to say it is impossible but remember you get what you pay for.

    I read this somewhere: Cheap, Good, Reliable: Pick Two.

    I know it's a lot to ask, but I'm on a tight budget.
    I write all the content for my main business myself but I have to outsource if I want to branch out to some new projects.
    this is why I might have to compromise on not-the-best content.

      I completely understand your situation. If you are willing to compromise on the quality you shouldn't have any problem finding articles for that price.

      Sometimes I will buy cheap articles like this and use them as a base and rewrite them.

      What will this compromise COST YOU?

      I don't know if you're just looking for quick Adsense revenue, or if you're looking for a longer term stream of income, but consider this...

      ... if your cheap articles turn out to be of poor quality, the question you need to ask yourself is... will visitors hang around on the page even to click an Adsense ad?

      On the other hand, there's lots of ways high quality can make you more money.

      For one, if the reader actually ENJOYED THE CONTENT, they may take action such as subscribing to your blog, signing up to your autoresponder, or wanting to read more from you... you become an AUTHORITY to them.

      Any of these can earn you more and more money than a quick Adsense fix.

      So I understand your desire to save money and get as cheap as you can... but at what cost to you?

      Why not spend more per article, and go for a writer who will get you what you (I suspect) really want, which is a good stream of income, as you build up your authority and subscriber base.

    There are a number of us who provide a solid, reliable and top quality service, myself included.

    Take a look at the Warrior for Hire section.

    The caveat being that you will get what you are prepared to pay for - so you may have to hunt around for those prepared to write quality, original pieces for 0.006 per word especially on a longer term basis.

    I know I won't.

      There's just way too much crap content out there. Pay a bit extra and actually put some value out there.

      I just get experts in my niche on Guru.com - I have a medical doctor writing for me at $10 an article. Now that's a bargain!

        Hi !



        I can recommend articlez.com, but they produce reliable and quality content, which has it's price. I don't believe, that you will get quality articles at your price.
        Articlez.com is run by Dave Kelly, an experienced internet marketer.

    How many articles will you be ordering? Here's why I ask...

    Consider setting aside a % of your overall budget for purchasing higher-priced articles and going after the "cheapies" with the balance of your budget.

    For instance, let's say you have $100 to spend. You could commit $60 to secure 30 extremely cheap articles (about $2 each at $.006 x 300-ish). You could spend the remaining $40 to purchase a handful of higher-priced articles from a quality provider.

    You might just discover that you'll get a better return on your investment with the better material.

      OP - you'll find some on Elance at a buck an article.
      Caveat emptor - you might be blessed to find a good one. Treat 'em well if you do...

    thank you all,
    I'm actually looking for articles for more than one project (adsense is one of them),
    but I think I'll really try Carson's idea and split my budget to high quality content and lower quality content.
    I think it will make me understand the importance of quality content in each of my niches

      I think your best long term strategy would be to find someone who is willing to work by the hour...then train them how to write articles quickly and efficiently.

      For this task, check out oDesk...and I'd recommend spending the time needed to find someone who has a very good handle on English...possibly a worker from the Phillipines.

      If you can develop a system (and improve it gradually over time) that allows you to create 4, 300 word articles an hour...you could hire someone for $8 per hour and still make your .06 per word budget.

      Of course, you will be investing time on the front end training the individual with your system...but in the long run, you will gain a worker who understands your needs and can product better work.

      Hope this helps,
