oooh! exciting! $1 for perfect english/RESEARCHED 500 word articles!!!

19 replies
Just noticed today that I received this in one of my outsourcing accounts (whereby I was 'invited' to bid). Very funny

PLUS -- the caveat -- "LOWER bid (LOWER than $1/500 words) 'would be appreciated'...". seeing yes, as of course, I guess $1/500 words is pretty expensive...

So for ONE dollar:
  • Researched articles
  • Perfect English
  • 100% Original content
  • TEN-TWENTY articles per day (i.e., write a 100% original small book/novel per day)
  • Payment ONLY released AFTER a 3rd party accepts the articles (i.e., ezinearticles).
Is there anyone here that would like to take this gentleman up on his EXCELLENT offer? (hey alexa -- if you read this, and want more info, let me know! )

here is the clip/request:
Hello,

i am in need of reliable writers who can write at least 10 to 20 (500 words) unique articles daily. please bid for 30 articles only.

************Please post a sample of your work without which no bid will be entertained.************

=> Bid Without sample will be ignored.
=> Bid over $30 will be ignored.

These articles must be 100% unique Copyscape passed. any plagiarism or low quality would not be tolerated.

You must be able to write perfectly in US English and pay attention to grammar, spelling, and punctuation, also should have excellent research skills in order to craft write on any topics.

Ask any questions you have and start bidding with a sample immediately. I will choose the winners within today.

you must be able to write ezine quality articles. Payment release after article accepted by ezinearticles.com

Lower bid would be appreciated.

thank you.

        So s/he now has 15 free articles.

        There is quite a well-known scam on freelancer sites where they turn down everybody and then use their submissions, whether it be an article or a website design.

          It didn't take me long to catch on to this little trick... Except I was always applying for much better paying jobs, lol.

          It took me about 4 people before I found a permanent gig and I quickly realized that I needed to be more careful about freely sending review articles. I mean if the person says I need 20 articles about "poker" and then send you a review to write and it is EXACTLY what they are asking for in the gig BEWARE!

          Not saying they all do this, but some do.

          The one person I found that was legit (and I still do jobs for today) had me write about a totally off the wall subject and only wanted like 400 words... After I met this person and chatted with him I realized I had been "had" by some of the other "freelancers"...

          But, hell 15 responses at $1 an article... Maybe this guy is onto something lol

            This ain't news to me. I've encountered hundreds of similar job postings like that one in my several years of applying for freelance writing jobs. The funny thing is that dozens of low-ball writers will still apply for those kind of jobs.

        He might be receiving a lot of bids, but I doubt if even one of those can write decent quality articles.

    Well that is why I just like myself so very well. When I see offers like this I just continue my way.

    This are people who wants you to work for them for free. And at times they are actually scammers. All what they are interested in is the articles that each individual applying will submit. and at the end of the day they will not recruit any body for the job but they will not only keep the articles but they will use them as well.

    As a rule I never submit a sample to a prospective client. I rather provide him/her with a link to one of my blogs where he/she can read my sample already posted articles.

    Yeah, I've occasionally been invited to jobs like that on Elance. You'd think they could figure out that a writer who ranks in the top 200 (out of over 80,000) wouldn't be interested in getting a dollar an article, but they still try once in a while...

    What a deal! Heck, after you write 15-20 of those bad boys (and of course, wait a week or so to be accepted) you might even be able to get yourself a nice hot meal!

    Nothing surprises me anymore. While this isn't always the case, I find that the people looking for the cheapest possible solutions are the one's who cause the most trouble and headaches.

    If people wouldn't devalue their work by accepting offers like this, they'd stop being made. It's like when your kids are screaming for you to buy them something; just ignore them and the commotion dies down soon enough.

    I am not surprised at all. A lot of people actually take advantage of the stiff competition among freelance writers who can afford to take low-paying projects such as this one in order to get feedback scores.

    This is what is destroying the freelance market. I remember the good old days when it was $1/100 words. Glad I don't rely on writing articles for people to make supplemental income anymore haha

      The point is that these types of gimmicks present you with nothing but headaches. You're better off spending a couple extra dollars for a service that you truly can rely on for high quality results.

    Something's definitely fishy here, it's a classic case of overpromising and underdelivering. I'm sure it won't be long before the complaints start flooding in, lol!
