I want your honest opinion here.
I try to be accommodating and flexible when I give content creation quotes. Naturally, everyone wants to save as much money as they can. I also charge one rate on forums and another on my own site, like many writers do.
But I would like to know what the maximum is you will pay for high-quality, unique content.
Paying your content creator well is the #1 way to earn their loyalty. To be honest, $10/500 word clients are a dime a dozen, and writers don't really feel any particular need to wow them. That's not to say that I don't value those clients. They can really pad my pockets on slow days. On the other hand, they represent *much* more work and more of these clients have unrealistic expectations compared to say, $30/500 word clients. (Just keeping it real)
