I found a few 1000+(LMS) niches, made keyword research for one of them and bought a .net exact match domain.
As English is not my primary language and I wrote only two articles before, I decided to outsource the writing part. I found someone at Warriors For Hire who asked for $4.5 per 600 words article. I sent the money and all details for 3 articles and waited. Two days later I get the articles and realize it was a bad decision. Not really for the money, but in that time I would have better wrote them myself. I had to spend around an hour to fix two of them and the third was not good at all.
Today it took me two hours to write a 600 words article. I had 4 websites and maybe 15 pages as resource as there is not any good article on the internet about this subject(or I just didn't found it) but the article is great, I would pay more than $15 for a similar one.
I would never use cheap writers again. It takes some time to write them so I better pay $15+ for an article then spending time, money and energy with cheap writers.
What is your experience with content writers?
How much do you pay for a quality article?
