I have a couple of posts from another forum I'd like to share...
So, I received this email... - Writing: Freelancing - WAHM Forums - WAHM.com
Why You Should Avoid Writing for or Buying from iWriter.com - Writing: Freelancing - WAHM Forums - WAHM.com
Now, I don't know if the email was meant to go out to the writers or if it mistakenly went to the wrong list (which is how it seems) but they are up in arms everywhere.
It's really simple, post-Panda: As an IM, you need high quality, 100% original content that won't break the bank. I get it. There are thousands of writers eager to take care of that for you in bulk. But not for $2 an article. And definitely not when the article in question might not even get paid for at all. Why do you think you're getting crap in return?
You get what you pay for.
If you pay us decently - Heck, some writers even consider $6 an article fair - you will have loyal writers who deliver stellar work on time and will follow you to the top. I mean people who will REALLY stay by your side while your profits soar. I'm on this other forum with tons of them, and they have loyal client lists they've served for years.
You get what you give. Any good business looks for the least expensive way to do things, granted - just do it ethically.
Epic fail, Brad.
