Where to find article writers?

31 replies
I'm ready to start outsourcing. I need to find someone to write articles for me. I just don't know which sites to look. Also Is there any things that I need to know before looking for a writer.

Thanks for your advice.

    Use textbroker. It's a company that combines authors and clients. You can select what level you want the article to be written at.

    Look in the "Warriors for Hire" section of this forum. There are a lot of excellent writers who can provide you with engaging, well-researched articles. Read their reviews and their past posts on the forum. Place a small order at first to see if you like their writing style.

    If you hunt by price only you'll have to go through quite a few to find what you need.

    This forum itself is a particularly good place to look. See if this helps, perhaps: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post6093734

      Hi, I'm a bit confused here and perhaps 'Alexa' can clear this up for me. I would love to post a link right here to my writing services on WF but after doing it once I received a warning so I don't do it anymore. I can't even post links to other services without fear of getting another 'infraction'

      What gives though? I paid for the War Room membership, I paid for a thread but why can't I post a link and people like 'Alexa' can?

      Most think that it was God who created man in his own image but it was us who created God in ours.

        Alexa's post points to writers other than herself.

        If you post a link to your own services, it is considered self promotion and breaks a rule.

        Well don't look at me: I've certainly never given you an infraction, nor do I intend to.

        I'm not selling or promoting anything of my own here at all (and actually never have done). The link I posted above wasn't to anything in which I had a commercial/monetized interest, was it? I just linked to another post I'd made elsewhere, answering the same question, to avoid copy/pasting it in. As you can see from a perusal of the Forum, many Warriors do that all the time.

        I think you must be asking why you can't link to your own thread/site in which you are promoting something? I don't make up the rules, but my guess is that if people were allowed to do that, then with 500,000 members, the entire board would very rapidly turn into Spam City, Arizona.

        That wouldn't make much sense, would it?

        People can link in their sig-files - but not in the text of a post - to their own services/products, as long as they don't then post to draw attention to their sig-file, obviously (which would be the same spammy thing, wouldn't it?).

        But I don't see how or why anyone would object to your posting a link - as I did - to something in which you don't have a vested financial interest of your own?

        Forgive me, please, if I've misunderstood the question, here ... but although what I've just said seems pretty self-evident, I can't quite see what else you were asking? :confused:

    Onlinejobs.ph and directory.outsourcingautopilot.com are both good places to look for VAs and writers. It's best to hire someone who will work for you on a long term relationship. Someone you can trust to do the job.

      It really depends on what you're looking for and how much money you have to spend. If price is your main consideration, you can definitely get inexpensive content from content mills like Textbroker and iwriter, or outsourcing sites like Odesk and Elance.

      If you're willing to pay a little more, and want a writer that understands Internet marketing, there are a ton of writers on this forum that would probably fit the bill.

      If you decide to hire a writer outside of a content mill, check out their samples and pay attention to how they interact with you via email. Are they professional? Or are their emails full of grammatical errors?

      Also, be clear about what you want out of your articles, and you'll have a greater chance of getting content you can use.

    I usually look no further than the Warrior Forum Warriors for Hire. I send them test jobs to do (small) and if I like the results, I hire them. I've also used seogenerals.com

    A few things that I feel obligated to add:

    - make sure they aren't giving you fake samples
    - hire them on the basis of their interview more so than anything else
    - don't compromise on price. you only get what you pay for.

    Happy outsourcing!

  • I often source my writers right here on the WF or on DP forum. I now have a good team of reliable writers that work for me.
    Make sure you get them to write a sample or test article before hiring.

        warriors for hire is a very good place for good writers, odesk is good aswell.

        just ask to see samples, or get them to write a test sample and see if you like the way they write then hire them. Outsourcing is the best thing you can do, leaves you to focus more on building your business.

    The problem most people tend to make when choosing an article writing service is choosing the one quoting the lowest rate. While this seems to be the best choice at the time, is it really worth it in the end? Generally speaking, most writers offering the dirt cheap solution are usually foreign - meaning, they are not native English and while the rate is incredibly attractive, what about the quality of your content? We all would agree that the content is the core of any successful website or blog out there. This said, when deciding on an article writing service, try and go with one that can offer you an affordable rate without compromising the quality.

        There is a notable difference in quality when you pay $2 for an article compared to paying $7 - $10 for an article. Cheap doesn't necessarily mean cheapest. Cheap in my personal opinion would be a rate that is affordable while the quality is not compromised. It is just a fact that most foreign writers will quote the lowest (cheapest), rate simply because they want the job and in return, substandard work will be delivered. There are providers out there that are able to produce high quality work without it costing the client an arm and a leg.

          Terra answered it for you. You need to let that deleted thread go already man, continuously bringing it up isn't going to make anyone think highly enough of you to click that signature.

          Oh, I had no trouble understanding what you were saying. My point is that you bring up a thread that died off 9 days ago to make a generalized pitch that to me seems a poor attempt at garnering sig attention .
