Build My Rank Posts Are Too Expensive - This Is What You Do

BuildMyRank (no affiliation) is a fantastic service for link building but if you can't churn out enough posts then it is pointless.

There are two main problems people when it comes to getting posts a) don't have enough time to write them b) don't have enough money to buy them.

Well this solution solves both problems, you will be able to slash the costs drastically and it is very easy to set up as well.

The simple solution is hire a writer, but not from oDesk or Freelancer but from Hire a Filipino Virtual Assistant - Outsourcing to the Philippines | Home (no affiliation), you can easily hire someone who is competent enough to write BuildMyRank posts from here.

You can find people to work for $400 per month and still work 40 hours per week.

The numbers will explain why this method is effective, this is how far you get with $400 normally, assuming that one post BuildMyRank post costs $1.5 ($0.01 per word).

$400 / $1.5 = 266 BuildMyRank Posts

Not bad, but if you assume that one BMR post takes 10 minutes to write. And 10 minutes is being slow, that is only 15 words a minute. Then it means that an hour is basically worth 6 BMR posts.

If you hire someone for $400 per month to work 40 hours per week, that means a total of 160 hours per month, and if 6 posts equals 1 hour...

160 x 6 = 960 BuildMyRank posts

That is enough posts to reach the maximum BMR post quota with 3 sites for 1 month as well. Baring in mind that the calculations assumed that it takes 10 minutes to write a BMR post, if you halved that to only 5 minutes per post (still just 30 words per minute) then you get 1920 posts for $400!

    Numbers look about right to me, you would have to do quite a bit of research to find a good writer for those rates. There is also the management of the hire overseeing what the do, reviewing, etc...

    From a numbers point of view it's an obvious route, to execute there are challenges to doing it effectively.

      You can normally find very good workers straight away, as long as you carefully outline what you want and make sure the prospective employee understands then you shouldn't have too many problems.

      This is what I was about to say.

      I love BMR (and your tip) -- but I'm not sure one could find a decent writer for that amount of money

      You'll never get human quality writing from a computer, at least not at an affordable rate or in the immediate future, that is the shown by quite a lot of negative reviews in his WSO thread.

      I think this is most cost effective way of getting high quality content for BuildMyRank.

    Good points . If you decide to hire from the Philippines, you can find Teachers, better yet, English teachers many cases retired with time on their hands, and you find they can write very clear English Articles.

    BuildMyRank is a great program, you do need at least one of these paid programs to
    build your links, and the price is lower than some others, making it a better choice
    for link building in the early stages of starting your internet marketing sites.

    Regarding hiring writers from the philippines, all you need to do is give them a trial run
    to see what they are capable of. If their english/grammar and writing style is up to the standard you require then go ahead...you are in control

    Old post, but a good one worth looking into. I hire from overseas on Odesk, but this is my first project. I am paying about .72/ea after Odesk fees - but have been really happy with my writer.

    A little more research shows that if I buy a little more at a time I can probably take .10 off that. The nice thing about Odesk is that I only pay for approved articles and I pay after they are approved.

    Hiring a virtual assistant seems to be a little more risk because I pay them no matter what their results are. Of course, poor results and I will let them go an find another one.

    One reason I am considering this path, however, is that I could assign different tasks as they arise instead of BMR posts. I could have them work on forums or write blog posts for my own websites as well. This is what makes me consider the risk.

    Thanks for the post. Even though it is old it is something worth considering.

    And even if you do not like to spend that much on BMR posts, you can also buy Natural Dragon software and record a 150 text in 7-8 minutes. If your English level is much better than mine, then you can do that in 4-5 minutes.

    If you write your own BMR posts it's quicker to write a 300 word post with two links. This way you do not have to stop inbetween posts and the fluency is far quicker in my opinion.

    2 x 150 word posts takes me 8 minutes.
    1 x 300 word post takes me 6 minutes.
    1 x 450 word post takes 5 minutes.

    Fluency is the key. Rather than writing a review for the keywords you are promoting, write a story for your posts and you can keep writing without having to think about it.

    There are a lot of quality writers that will write for BMR at .75 per post. I have found many U.S. writers who enjoy the work. Many have told me they like the variety.

    If you are doing them yourself, another way to write more of them is to use Dragon Naturally Speaking.

      Here I was thinking I was insane for enjoying doing these "snack" versions of SEO articles.

      Granted, I am actually writing articles, albeit very short ones. I don't buy into this "it can be crap of any drivel variety" story. That'll kill BMR before its time.

    I picked up a provider on Elance that did 100 posts for 60 bucks. Quality was great and all were approved. I used qualifying to determine who to go with. Had them write one post to be submitted. Helped weed out a lot of people, leaving me with a handful of people to pick from. I haven't made any projects since, but plan on going this route again soon.

    BMR service works, but there is a problem if you are going after very competitive keyword. I have excellent BMR post writer who posted about 1100 posts for one single keyword and all his posts were accepted without any problems (he is excellent writer, no errors at all, meaningful posts). But after 1100 posts, BMR started rejecting his posts. I couldn't see any reason for rejections, so I guess they most probably don't want so many similar posts written for same keyword, hence rejections.
    Does anybody have similar experience?

      I can imagine this would be an issue with a service like this... for those lukewarm serps, it is going to take some custom seo work... and I find it hard to believe a one size fits all approach will have sites breaking through the top of more competitive serps.

      BMR now is very much strict.
      They want to make sure that there is no duplicate content.
      I been writing BMR post for $.8, then my client give me 2000 almost the same keywords. Because the keyword is almost the same some of the content is also similar.Of course, not duplicate.So far all of my posts are live now and i am happy about it.

      BMR now do not allow single mistake when it comes to grammar, spelling and punctuation mark. so, it is very much important for the writer's to review the article.

    Ya but good luck getting them to write one post every 10 minutes, Better to contract out on a post by post basis

    400 dollars per month is a bit high actually for the philippines but the price may have gone up lately, I put an ad in craigslist philippines for a writer for less than that , and got no replies lately so the price may have gone up

    a few years ago i put an ad for it and got tons of replies. Perhaps fiverr has them all spoiled

    I pay my writer .50 cents per accepted BMR post and I see him accepting jobs at .40 cents. Supposing you hired your BMR writer for 40 cents per post, you are paying $360 for 900 posts.

    I think it is easier to outsource BMR posts on a job by job basis.

    Buy American people! Sending money overseas isn't helping out the US one bit. It's like choosing to eat at a mom & pop restaurant instead of going to Chili's ya know? Doing that helps out your local community which in turn, helps you. It's the same principal when choosing to have your products made overseas instead of here in America.

      LOL what a hypocryte. I'd like to see you fork out $1,000/mth for short blurbs when you can basically get the same for 1/4 of the price. We're marketers, we need to make high ROIs.

      It's hard to believe that in 2012 we are still seeing this classic economic fallacy. "Buy American" is a banner held up only by the uneducated. Free trade/specialization is a WIN/WIN! All parties involved benefit as groups of people focus on their core competencies. Output grows, efficiency increases, and as a result the entire pie is bigger. The phillippines has developed a knack for english related, low-level services (i.e. customer service, article writing, etc). This will certainly displace their counterparts in America, but it will also simultaneously free up capital, and resources (time) for businesses and displaced American workers to fill in needed gaps where the U.S. shines (e.g. America is particularly strong in technology, financial services, private education, aircraft, military, etc).

      Those extra resources being used in an more advanced area produces higher output for America and that makes us all FAR BETTER OFF than having a few extra article writers.

      Lastly, if there is a God, is he a respecter of persons? Doesn't someone in the Phillippines deserve an equal opportunity to work and feed their family? Or is that right reserved for Americans only?

      I honestly feel very, very good about outsourcing.

    On paper, that seems like a great strategy. However, you have to remember that if there are ever months that you don't have any BMR posts to write, you still have to find something for your full-time VA to do. Plus, you have to manage an employee which could be a hassle depending on the person.

    My main point is to just be cautious when hiring a full time overseas worker. I've had some bad experiences from jumping in too quick just based off of numbers like you are mentioning. It could work out nicely though if you do your research and spend a lot of time finding the perfect employee for you!

    400 USD for articles in addition to the BMR subscription price? Pretty steep price for something you can accomplish much much cheaper...

    Why not just get an ALN service subscription (you don't need to submit a website, they do it for you, plus all of the article submissions) for ~50 USD and pocket the extra 400 USD?

    A typical ALN subscription will give you 450 blogs post X 3 backlinks per blog post per month... Or get 2 ALN subscriptions and only place one backlink per post for 900 backlinks at ~100 USD.

    BMR may be a higher quality blog network, but ALN still works wonders with fewer headaches.
