how to get articles at a cheaper prices?

22 replies
Hello,

Can anyone tell me how to get articles at a cheaper prices...? I knew people are even willing to do @ $2/500 words..

BUT my actual Query is: Is there still any other way to get at a price of $1/500 words? (pls dont think me wrong!) Actually I need articles, BUT not much money, and I cannot write myself!

So, any approaches brings me more articles at cheaper prices!

    There were some article writing services that i used and they were quite cheap: 0.01$/word, you can try those guys Content Writing 360° - Content Writing Services. I don't think it's possible to get 500 word articles at 1$, you may get them if they are not unique and made with some spinners.

    $1 for 500 words. I am not sure if I have seen that price advertised here at WaFo or any other forum actually. That is very low. Even in the Philippines or India where the average productivity is 3000 to 3500 words per day, your rate amounts to $6 to $7 per day. Not even minimum wage. I don't know what to tell you. Do you want the articles to be actually READ or just for SEO?

    Do you really want 1$/500 words article, as will get what you paid for - not very good quality article, that will definitely won't help you with SEO or conversions

    Wow that is one fifth of a penny per word, never mind the research that goes into the article...

    To be honest, YES, you can get articles for that amount but it's not worth reading. You can buy spin article for that price.

    The best option is to learn and write it yourself because I can't start to imagine what a $2/500 word article would look like.

    I know there would be people writing for that low amount BUT the quality of the articles would be very poor. So do you want to run a business that has poor quality?

    I would suggest buying some high quality PLR.

    You will need to re-write it - but then any articles you get for $1/500 will need a rewrite. If you start with high quality PLR you will at least have something worth rewriting.

    Hope that helps.

    There are lots of places where you can get cheap articles, but, when you pay peanuts you'll get monkeys. Think a moment, there are millions of articles available on the web, then why should somebody read your article. So, your material, article or whatever, should be something unexceptional or make the readers feel good, otherwise it will not serve the purpose.

    definitely. you can find a lot of writers who are willing to give you 1 500-word article for $1 at oDesk.. but of course, do not set your expectations high.....

    Yes - they are. It's a global market, and in some parts of the world where English isn't the first language, $5 is a day's pay.

    But you need to be clear about exactly what you mean by "article".

    Something which can engage readers and attract them to click on a link is a whole different proposition from a chunk of keyword-optimised text to which a mere backlink can be attached, but which nobody's ever actually going to read (or be able to), let alone click.

    Overall, Nicola's suggestion above about starting from high-quality PLR material is doubtless a far better proposition than having articles written for $1/$2.

    Could you be more specific on what the "I cannot write myself" entails?

    Is it you can't get a smooth flow from the ideas that you'd like to present?

    Is it that you aren't very good with syntax, grammar and spelling?

    Is it that you don't feel as though you are creative?

    The reason I ask this is because hiring a skilled writer to rewrite and/or edit your pieces is less expensive than hiring that said writer to completely freelance for you. You still would be getting the benefits of that writer, however at a lower cost.

    You will have to invest a bit more than a dollar, but truth be told one very well written engaging piece can be more lucrative and beneficial than dozens of poorly written ones. Think quality over quantity.

    Just another avenue for you to consider.

    I'm from the Philippines and I can't really deny the fact that there are people from my country who are willing to do the job at that price. Most have "ok" English skills (being totally honest) so what I'm trying to get at is you will rarely find someone that can give you a GREAT quality article at that price in my country. You could get good (close to bad) quality articles so I'm still sticking to: you get what you paid for.

    Better just write the articles yourself.

    If you are looking for quality articles you must OPEN your wallet!
    Don't make me wrong but... let me ask you this... why do you wanna buy an article full of mistakes instead of getting a good job in order to pay them and making a nice-looking business?

    $1 for 500 words? Man... lol... i imagine you dont have a large advertising budget. I doubt if you'll find a quality writer at such prices.

  • I agree with most comments here. You need to pay to get quality articles written. Sure thing you can get $1 for 500-words in several freelancing sites but you know what they say that you get what you pay

    At least a decent 500-word content would cost around $2-$3 and that's already cheap

  • Are you selling your own products? Do you have affiliates? Contact your affiliates. Tell them you're willing to pay $1 for a 500++-word article with their affiliate links in each one of those articles (affiliate links point to your sales and/or squeeze pages), and these articles will be published in your own sites and offsite publication networks. This way, they can earn more from their articles (commissions for each sale or lead generated by those articles), and they'll also benefit from your marketing campaigns, since you'd be promoting those articles, most likely.

    Are you selling affiliate products? This is where it becomes tricky. Contact writers who believe they can promote your affiliate products and generate sales from their effort. Tell them they'd be managing your affiliate account, and that you'd be paying $1 per 500++-word article, and that they'd earn a fixed XX% from the monthly affiliate commissions, from the day they signed up as your $1/500++-word article writers.

    Are you earning from CPA and/or CPC? Integrate a system that's similar to what I mentioned above. Good luck!

    Hi gillw254!

    Actually there is! You can get those prices in third world countries in the Philippines but just be careful as many of them will not work for you in a long-term case. Regardless of the case, there is a bunch of quality people you can work with smoothly out there. These are the sites you can go to.

      You can get writers who can write articles at $1/500 words. But you will not get the quality as much as you can expect. So you should increase the price if you want quality articles.

    Have you checked the Digital Point forums? There are good writers there who'd write at your preferred rate. Although, you must not expect too much at that price.
