The reason I'm asking is we recently hired a full time VA on UpWork who was apparently an academic professor in another country. The quality of work was acceptable though it took the individual 2.5 hours for each article (500 words).
Base on what I've experience with our other article writers and my own experience, I thought this was rather surprising. It'd be interesting to hear and see how long it takes you guys to write a good 500 word article.
Presuming these premise:
- The content is properly researched/fact-checked
- The content is articulated effectively
- A good piece of content overall.
Even with these considerations, I cannot comprehend how it'd take 2.5 hours to write one 500 word article.
