I know there have been quite a few threads like this, but seriously - what are they thinking??
I went through the first 5 or 6 pages and I just couldn't believe what I was seeing. Remember, a few years back, when there would be talk here about how people are way underselling, giving their services for 10 bucks an article?
Well, it seems that even those people are now considered "expensive".
People getting work (judging from the reply and view count in their threads) are the ones selling their service for 20-40 cents per...100 words!
That's right - you can find headlines like "American Writers With English Bachelors degree - $1,99 per article".
The question I have is - how can you live off, writing an article for 2 dollars? Or, even better, how fast do you have to churn out articles to be able to sustain yourself?
I'm not even going to start about the people who buy these articles, or the poor chaps that have to read them - but I'm amazed that here, in the biggest marketing forum on earth, there isn't a market for high quality content.
My clients mostly aren't from here, at least I haven't found them through here, but I'm certain that all successful marketers have writers that produce high quality content and it's just strange to me that they don't use the Warrior forum, otherwise there would surely be a supply for high quality writers, which now there obviously isn't.
So, what's your take on this - is the market this way because good writers simply don't advertise themselves here, or do the people who need quality content simply don't look for it in the Warrior forum and writers have to go look elsewhere to find work?
