How much to pay for articles

55 replies
I put a job up on Elance for someone to write articles for me, budget unsure, and I got a wide range of quotes. Can anyone give me a market price for article writing, per article 300-500 words?

    It really depends on the quality of the article and the subject. I see articles going for 1$ for 500 words up to 20$+. Just remember, you get what you pay for.

      Totally agree with it.
      Ask for samples and choose from price/quality ratio.

    I don't look at anything less than $20-25.

    Anything under that is mostly garbage.

    For the best quality, I think less then $10 doesn't makes sense. I pay $10 for 500 words to an Ezine Expert Author, his work is super. Have used cheaper ones in the past but they were not good at all.

    I used to get $5 500 words article from Iwriter.. Now, I go for $20 per article and found that the $20 article is much more worth it than 4 x $5 articles.

      Absolutely right , don't look for cheap writers instead focus on quality. I am writing article for myself and one 700 word article will consume my approx 2 hrs so you can think the cost of that article.
      My wife recently started article writing service and writing great articles for some of warriors also.If you need I can connect you with her.

      Cheers

    The general rule is pretty much - you get what you pay for...

    But still, I encountered some really good writers that work for less than some 'superstar' writers that can't write sh*t.

    My suggestion is test some writers, preferably here on WF. Find some reputable members with a good reputation, and once you find one with a price you can afford and the quality you're willing to pay for, stick with him. One of the advantages of working with the same writer, is that you can brand your website with the "personality" found in the articles.

    I usually pay somewhere between $5-$15, depending on word count.

    Best regards,
    Dan

    300-500 words isn't really an "article". Not for "article marketing" purposes, anyway. It's more "a chunk of keyword-optimized text to which a backlink can be attached".

    Respectfully, before paying anything at all for those, I'd ask yourself what your exact purpose is in buying it, how and where you intend to use it, what you hope/expect it to achieve for you, and then perhaps read through 10 or 20 recent "article marketing threads" here, to see whether your intentions appear to match anything that's a viable and worthwhile strategy.

    A few hours spent doing that carefully and thoughtfully might well (a) save you a lot of money and time, and (b) give you a fresh and perhaps more productive perception of what "article marketing" really is and how it works.

    I'm an article marketer, myself, but what you're asking about buying would have no value or benefit at all to my own business, and so naturally enough(?) I'm wondering why you think it will, for yours.

      Thanks for the feedback Alexa, I really dont care about article marketing or keywords, my desire is only to have some content I can link to for my fanpage. I wouldnt really call this article marketing.

      Thanks to everyone for the input, Im not looking for 'the cheapest' solution, the messages of 'you get what you pay for' is understood, but not really helpful unless I know what a norm is (so then I can know if Im paying a premium amount, or a discounted amount)

      How long does it take to write 300-500 words? Would it be safe to say that $15-20 is a standard amount for normal quality and above is a premium and below is a discount?

          First off you should learn to read. I have said multiple times that the cost is not a major concern to me, I just dont want to pay more than the market price ( I have gotten bid ranges from $5 to $100). People here, just about everyone who has responded actually, have all assumed I want to hire the cheapest person. If I wanted to do that I would have dont that, and wouldn't be inquiring about market price.

          Second it is insulting and asinine that you would make an assumption as to 'what I can afford' you know nothing about me, or how much I earn, if you really must know I CAN afford to pay $100 per if thats what a going rate is. It doesnt mean I would want to if the going rate is half that.Your assumptions about personal matters (my financial status) shows a serous lack of professionalism.

        If you're just looking for some content to link back to your fan page for something in the 300-500 word range you can probably find someone in the $10-15 range.

        How much you pay also depends on how much content you want to produce. Obviously if you can guarantee someone 5 articles a week you should be able to find someone decent at the lower end of the range.

        However, if you want some kick-butt articles that are longer and have staying power than I would suggest paying more money to one of the WF professional writers who have responded on this thread.

        Premium: $30-$50+

        Discounted: $12-$20

        An experienced writer can write 300-500 words in less than 20 minutes.

        Hope this helps.

    Depends on the age of the student. I would:
    1. decide on an hourly rate (e.g., $15)
    2. get an estimate of the # of hours it would take from the student to do it
    3. make an offer of the hourly rate * # of hours

    Straightforward and completely fair. If you have a maximum amount you want to spend in mind, just figure that into the formula. If the total amount is greater than your maximum, set the price to your maximum.

  • The normal price is 1.00 per 100 words. But you can get them much cheaper than that

    Its tough to get a rock bottom low price on articles and at the same time expect quality but it is possible.

    The trick is to land a solid relationship with a professional writer that takes time on YOUR content vs outsourcing and dealing with several other clients.

      Apparently "normal" is subjective.

      $1 for 100 words is normal for nonsensical spun articles or writers from third world countries who try as they may, but just don't have a command on the English language, or for Native English speaking wannabe writers who produce assembly line pieces.

      Let's think about assembly lines for a moment. Assembly lines are for mass producing in the least amount of time possible with the lowest cost, utilizing no creativity, originality, inspiration, inventiveness or inspiration, but by rote. Or in other words doing something by repeating it over and over again rather than by understanding it. Every piece is the same with little to no variance and equates to producing dull, bland and boring pieces. No brain power is required.

      Now let's think about handcrafting pieces. These are what artists and masters of their craft produce who take pride in their work. They use only the finest of materials meant to last. Each piece is not merely a piece, but a masterpiece designed and created to have lasting power. They strive for perfection and quality with each piece being distinctive and unique. They do their utmost to produce pieces they are not only proud to have their own name and reputation attached to, but for their clients to feel the same.

      So, do you want an assembly line piece or a handcrafted piece. The price you choose to pay is the determining factor.

    If you want good quality writing don't be surprised by a rate of 3 to 5 cents per word. Sometimes you can get a good writer running a special for half that, but don't expect that rate to remain for future work.

      I'll try not to repeat what others have said but I will offer this suggestion:

      Forget the cost/rate and forget the "quality" the writer promises to produce.

      The quality of writing is almost never as good as someone claims it to be and some of the prices I see people charging are laughable at best. Charging too much for web content is a clear sign that the person doesn't understand the market.

      What you should look for is a writer who has a lot of experience producing content for a variety of different clients. You want someone who has a history of very satisfied customers who come back over and over again. Experience is worth more than anything else, especially with search engines tightening their policies about content.

      Don't be afraid to ask for live examples of their work on other people's websites. Feel free to ask about other sites they have worked for. Any reputable writer will be happy to provide you with that information. If you still can't decide, then go ahead and ask for a free sample.

      Buy cheap, and buy twice.

      Cheap articles have been produced by article spinning. Their content has been distorted from the original, and sometimes do not make any sense at all.

      I have had some my articles "article spun" by crooks, and they have ended up in a shambles. As I said in a previous post, I have to report to the FTC for one of my business lines. What I state in an article must be 110% FTC-compliant, or else.

      So, if you want quality, you are going to have to pay more, like three to five cents a word.

      Remember, its your web-based business and reputation here.

    around $10 is perfect but be selective about who you choose. Ask for prior work , live examples in directories such as Ezine and ask for a reference if possible. Just be sure to get your due diligence done and you will be fine even with $5 per/article.

    I think the reason people assumed you were looking for cheap writers is simply because that is usually the case. Almost every day someone asks, "Where can I find top quality writers who work super fast and cheap?" or "How can I get interesting 800 word articles for $5?"

    I commend you for asking what the going rate is instead of just trying to find the cheapest writers possible.

  • Hi FirstSocialApps,

    If you want "great" content (content that'll go viral and generate traffic, conversions and sales for you), but you're on a tight budget (I assume you are, since you're looking in freelance sites and not hiring your own employees), then why not:

    =>> Offer a fixed per-word price and passive income from the content that your subcontractor writers produce for you? How?

    =>> Set up a two-tiered affiliate system. Configure affiliate commissions for each subscriber/lead/affiliate referral and product sale (if you're a product merchant) or a fixed monthly profit percentage share (if you're an affiliate or if you earn through CPC/CPA/CPM). Then:

    =>> Ask your subcontractor writers to sign up as your affiliates, write and post the content you need, include their affiliate links in that content (which you'll post in your website, and for the content you'll use in your other offsite publication networks, they can include links to your onsite content with their affiliate links), and remind them about the possibility of earning passive affiliate commissions on top of your fixed per-word price. What will this initially provide you?

    =>> Your subcontractor writers would most likely want to write "great" content for you (more for themselves, since they'd want to post and promote content that'd go viral and rake in traffic, conversions and sales, for their own good). One advice though:

    =>> This arrangement works best when your subcontractor writers are also trained and experienced in offsite promotions and online marketing...

I was a full time freelance worker for around 4 years and averaged $55,000 per year over that time. People hire freelance workers because they a) dont want to go through the pain of hiring an employee, b) dont want to pay comp, unemployment, etc c) because they believe in the freelance model.

      • Hi FirstSocialApps,

        I'm sorry, but you seem to have incorrectly interpreted what I said by "you being on a tight budget" as I assume you are (and still do, by the way), in my opinion. Please allow me to put things in perspective here. You said:

        Originally Posted by FirstSocialApps View Post

Im all 3 of those things. As I said I think you have a mistaken perspective on what freelance work is all about. It most def is not 'cheap work'
        I didn't say freelance work is cheap work, well, not necessarily, looking at the countless ridiculous offers out there. What I meant is:

        =>> For you to choose a freelancer over hiring a regular employee means you're on a "tight budget" (compared to corporations with 300 employees and above or even companies with 50 employees and above, and "budget" doesn't only refer to finances, but also time and other non-financial resources, which are affected by your targets and growth or expansion plans). Me saying you seem to be on a "tight budget", in my opinion, isn't apersonal attack on you. This is just how I see it, compared to how I'm looking at it, because you most likely:

        • Don't need that many employees;
        • Don't need a larger office to house additional employees;
        • Don't need added manager/supervisors/trainors/Q&A employees to work with them; and
        • Don't most likely have an annual marketing budget that goes above what I see as "tight budget" standards. So, this is why I shared, in my response earlier:

        =>> Pieces of advice that could help you hire freelancers who will consider working with you more of a business partnership, than a subcontractor-service supplier relationship. In my experience, the employees I hire all have the chance to become owners of their own businesses, with my company as one of their main clients, since my company helps them out from setting up their businesses and loaning (from us) their office equipment to implementing PPT (people/process/technology), after they perform "well" (in well-defined standards), and because of this, most of them (you can't have it all you know) share as well as integrate our company goals and objectives into their own personal goals and objectives...

        Again, sorry if you found what I meant by "tight budget" as offensive, but to clear things up: I meant No offense whatsoever...

    in India you get writers to write articles for $2 to $4. However you get what you pay for but if you want articles for link building purpose you can get more articles at this price range and more backlinks pointing to your site. You can easily go about creating high quality blog posts and use these $2 articles for link building purpose...

    Your best option is to look at some samples from your bidders to get a feel for their work. Over the years I have paid various amounts for article writers and the cheapest ones normally at some point require editing or eventually burn out. However you can find decent writers but it's normally a trial and error process until you find a reliable writer.

    Some guys that charge $10 per article will be just as good as $30 guys but it will take you time to find these guys and that can cost you more in the long run.

    There have been a lot of really good points in regards to articles and their prices. In the end though it really comes down to what the article is going to be used for. If it is just for backlinks then it would be a mistake to pay $20 for 500 words or even $10 since you can get it cheaper and still have the quality aspect as well.

    If you want the article to be exciting, captivating and get people liking it and spreading it then of course you will pay more and it will be longer than 500 words. Even though I know most of the time writers from another country don't do so good that does not mean they are all bad.

    Sometimes they have better work ethic and a lot more professionalism than people who just simply overprice in the US.

    Best of luck!

      That's certainly true.

      The problem is that - as in almost every thread on this subject - there's also been quite a bit of complete nonsense posted by people who have absolutely no idea what they're talking about and don't begin to understand how article marketing really works at all. And as ever, the people who actually need to be able to distinguish between that stuff and the "really good points" which you rightly mention are (through no fault of their own) typically the very ones least able to do so. Which is always kind of frustrating. But there you go: on the internet, there's no real "quality control", which is - in a sense - one aspect of the very point we've been talking about in this thread.

And as ever, the people who actually need to be able to distinguish between that stuff and the "really good points" which you rightly mention are (through no fault of their own) typically the very ones least able to do so. Which is always kind of frustrating. But there you go: on the internet, there's no real "quality control", which is - in a sense - one aspect of the very point we've been talking about in this thread.
        And because of this, I fear we won't see a down trend with these types of posts any time soon. <sighs>

        But on the upside, I do enjoy reading your posts regarding them.

    I would suggest to go for $5 per article (500 w).

    It depends on the quality of articles you are getting. I once ordered 50 articles form two different companies. One company charged $3 per 300 word article and the other company charged $5.20, but the $3 articles worked better on my blogs and had a higher rank than the $5.20 articles. You need to experiment with 2 or three different article writing companies to see results before putting more money into one service.

    Good article writers tend to be pricey, and the cheap ones usually have a lot of grammar mistakes in their articles; you need to look at Native English speakers that don't demand a lot to get the best price/quality ratio.

    Have you tried using online job websites? I've used oDesk multiple times in the past (12 projects to be exact), and I had great success with them. Writers in oDesk hourly rates varies between $3 to $10 depending on the skill level and oDesk experience. Just make sure to interview and hire the right freelancer. I've made a blog post here: oDesk.com

    Actually it depends upon the project or task being done. Some of them pay fixed priced or hourly. In article writing it is mostly a fixed price pricing for it comes in bulks. You can have 1-10 articles done for just 5-8$.

    But it depend on how hard the topic would be.

    Hope this helps.
