Where do you hire your article writers?

32 replies
If you need an article, or multiple articles written - where do you go to find your article writers? Do you end up with a relationship with a writer and use them frequently, or do you find you get a different writer every time?

    Before i joined this forum, i used to use Elance, now i don't advice people to use it because it's hard to find a top quality article writer there, you have to keep on trying and trying before you can get one that will meet all your requirements and deliver your articles in time and as you want them.
    Today, i use the 'Warriors For Hire' Section in this forum. Just browse through and check out their threads, you'll find one that meets your needs(in terms of cost and other things), read their testimonies from satisfied customers whom you may probably know and also read the posts of other warriors down the thread. You'll surely get one to work with.

    I think, most importantly, you need someone who knows how to create compelling SEO content. There are plenty of good writers out there who don't know how to craft an article for SEO purposes.

    And yes, with the $2 article writing services, you do get what you pay for. My company does editing services (in addition to content writing), and you wouldn't believe the stuff that these "writers" are churning out. Sometimes, it's actually humorous!

      Nicole is absolutely right. Glad to hear I am not the only one who gets asked to 'edit' content that is nonsensical broken English littered with keywords!

      Look for a writer that can do the three I's

      For sure. I'd like to consider myself a fairly decent writer, however, what I considered great, well-written, content just wasn't tailored to be effective in our online reality. It wasn't until I began teaching myself SEO/LSI/etc. that I began to see success with my articles. You just aren't going to get that level of consideration with a $2 article writing service....in fact, you'll be lucky to even get an original product. In this case, you do definitely get what you pay for.

    The best experiences I have have had with content writing, has actually been Textbroker.com Sometimes, you can get lucky and find a great writer, simply by putting an order out there, in the "order pool". It is pretty easy to write to the authors and I quickly found a couple of writers, who I want to help me with a future project.

    The Warrior For Hire section ain't too shabby. :-)

    And yes, if you find a writer that does a good job, be loyal to them and they'll be loyal to you.

    I use my own writers. I'm lucky enough that I've found a couple of really good ones through trial and error and I keep a hold of them tight

    I never pay less than $8 per 500 word article (and that's darned cheap as well).

    As it's already been stated, you get what you pay for and I know these articles will be well written and fresh

    There's a lot of freelance sites where you can see writers who are offering their services. Outsourcing companies also have various creative writers where you can lease in a reasonable prices. I can recommend a company for you. Please provide your contact details.

    There are many sites on net who provide you this facility but they charge more as compare to new writers. So, I think Alexa Smith's idea is not bad.

    Lots of good tips here. I have used rent a coder in the past with fairly good results. I have also used the $2 places as well and wound up rewriting most of the articles. That is when I could get them to finish the job on time.

    I also writ my own articles, but I use PLR to get ideas flowing which cuts down a bit on the research and composing time.

    There are some pretty good writers on fiverr. You just need to check the feedback ratings of the sellers. There are some really talented writers on there selling press releases as well.

    Well I have never hired any one for my blog but I got a writer for my companies blog by joining freelancer.com

    The best way is to ask out college goers and house makers as they are the ones who look out for part time job opportunities.

    Human Article Rewriter works for me although the wait times are a little hit and miss. Price is great though and the upgraded version allows for Word and Paragraph Spins.

    Never depend on article rewriters.

    In the long run, original article writing will help you a lot. Online branding is a must.

    I think all of the above ideas are great, but I would have to say I have had most of my writers when I have needed them come from the WF. You can always check the writers posts on the forum to get a bit of a sense of their writing styles as well. My thought is, if you're a writer it should show, even in your forum posts. Afterall, everything you type online is essentially your portfolio of work.

    Hope that helps,
    Sylvia

    I currently have 1 article writer that I hire recently..The job done is GOOD, from my point of view (because I'm a newbie).. Most writer I see can write everything...Now where can I find a writer that their speciality is in a particular niche???? Example he/she expert in writing only automobile topic or maybe only about fashion...
