1. Go to oDesk

2. List a job for X number of BMR posts and state how you will only pay after all the required number of posts are approved

3. Set the price to X number of BMR posts times by $0.50

4. That's it!

It's so simple and it's a fantastic way to easily get tonnes of cheap BMR posts. They don't need to be high quality, they need to be approved and that's it.

Recently bought 250 posts this way and it costs approx $135 (odesk charge a small fee, that's why it wasn't straight $125).

You guys all owe me a beer.

    Do you make an account for them to submit to BMR or do they just send them to you and you post them on BMR? Is that fee per post that Odesk charges? How do they know that your posts were approved and you will pay them after that?.

    What sort of title do you use? "Need BMR writer for 100 posts" or something like that or do you have the price in there as well?

    I did this and found a writer to do 100 @ $50 and it was amazing. 100% acceptance.

    He's now writing for me daily, does about 10-15 for me a day.

    Great way to find insanely cheap writers.

      Did you set them up for an account on BMR and they just upload it once done or do you post them yourself?

      When you posted your job did you mention in your job post of getting a sample (50 words or like) of their writing before hand before you committed them to the job?

        The writer I hired had previous experience with BMR so he already had a writer account. If your writer doesn't, you need to make it for them.. it's simple.

        In my posting I said I would contact them asking for 1 sample BMR post. This weeds out the people who don't want to spend the time doing 1 for free, and allows you to judge their response time.

        I waited until I had about 4-5 people on my short list. 1 article didn't get accepted so they were obviously removed, and then the other 3 were chosen based on their writing ability, response time to my emails, their overall work ethic and availability.

        I've hired tons of ppl through odesk and freelancer.com so I know how to do the interview process. After going through about 10+ terrible writers I know how to do it properly now. It's one of those things where you either get lucky on your first try, or you learn the hard way.

          Thanks for the info.

          So when I post the job and I should indicate in there that I will require 1 BMR sample post from them before hiring them and then those that respond to the posting I tell them to send me 1 BMR post.

          I should then monitor how fast they send me the sample BMR post and then submit their post to BMR to see if it gets approved. If all goes well then hire 1 from those that responded and assign the batch to them.

          I've never hired anyone from Odesk before so I'm trying to learn the process from those that good experience.

            Yeah man you got it down pretty well.

            What you can do as well is search for other people posting jobs for BMR posts. Open up like 10-15 of them and copy and paste the best parts from each. Some will list stuff, some will be 2-3 lines (avoid those).

            What i've learned is you need to be 100% in what you want. Do you want 5 a day? MAKE SURE YOU TELL THEM. Do you want 150 posts and 300+ word posts? Tell them. Only 150 words? State that. You need to be 100% clear in what you expect and what you need. This is basically your contract with them.

    This really is great advice. I hired a dedicated BMR writer on Odesk 3 months ago at a rate slightly above $0.50/post, and have been extremely pleased with the results. He gives me 500 posts/month for $300 with a 100% acceptance rate, and his turnaround time is extremely fast. Rankings for my sites have improved considerably since then as a result.

    In my opinion, to really get your money's worth out of BMR, this is the only way to go. The time it would take me to write that many posts every month is better spent on other parts of my business, and paying BMR $2.50/post becomes ridiculously expensive very quickly.

      How many sites do you promote with those 500 articles?

        Another way to save even more time is to have the writer send you all 100 posts in an excel file, titles in one column, and the body in the other one. Get them to include the links (as html code) or if you don't want to give away your site, get them to use a placeholder like [URL] and then use find/replace once you get the spreadsheet. You can then use BMRs csv import function to quickly upload all your articles. Just make sure you schedule your domain so only a couple get posted every day. Long term drip with only a couple of clicks!

    Do you guys look for BMR posts relevant to the backlink, or just any old grammatically correct block of text? I am looking at hiring someone to write for me but I am not sure I can ask them to write 30 articles about baseball hats :p

      It doesn't have to be only about baseball hats for the BMR backlink/article text.

      Write about anything as long as it's 100% related to baseball or hats, personally I would stick with the keyword baseball as the root keyword in that example for most of the BMR articles & page titles.

      Mention the keyword baseball hats once with anchor-text in the BMR article & your done.

    This was an excellent post on how to find a BMR outsourcer. I've using oDesk for several months now but didn't realize I could get a BMR writer for 50 cents per post.

    I just created a job listing. Initially, I'm just asking for 20 posts of 150 words each. Hopefully, this way I can hire several people and then choose the best one as my ongoing writer.

    By the way, I found this post searching for "cheapest BMR posts" on Google. I feel sorry for all those people paying $2.50 per post to BMR or even paying $1 per post to some other BMR writer services.

    It's like Rough Outline said, "They don't need to be high quality, they need to be approved and that's it."

    I agree. Thanks.

    I found myself that I had to go through a couple writers before I found one that not only provided quality work but also did it efficiently (didnt overcharge for spending too much time per each article).

    If it was lower than $2.50, BMR could have more long-term clients just buy straight from them instead of looking for their own outsourcers.

    So I imagine they must sell a boatload at that insane rate.

    How many writers did you guys go through before finding one that could do the job? I've always struggled to find one who was efficient to warrant the cheaper cost on oDesk. There are some good ones on here though who will do them for about $1/post - which I still think is great.

      Alot!

      lately BMR has been banning writer accounts which fall below 50% acceptance rate. Can't say i blame them.

      You just have to keep trying and make sure you are clear about what's expected in your job posting.

    Thanks. That's what I thought.

    It would be great to find the diamond in the rough but I was spending more than what I pay now just due to rejections. And there is the time lost in checking and editing them.

    They really are not that rare. If you're budgeting even near $1 per post you're going to have them fighting over the work.

    I just search for people who have already done BMR jobs + choose based on their experience and feedback. Give them access via a writer account and pay only for accepted posts as a final safety net. Of course you tell them those terms up front.

    That combo weeds out 95% of the poor writers.

    What I would like to know is, how much are you paying per week / month for BMR subscription + posts?

    Also how much time are you spending on the project?

      BMR is definitely worth it. Since the basic (cheapest) plan allows up to 5 domains at a time, the more sites you have, the more use you'll have out of it.

      Using BMR gets you high-quality, indexed links - it really helped me to rank my site. But it does require time and effort to write the posts, unless you outsource it.

    In my opinion, if you can find a quality writer at a price that you can afford then you should probably stick with that person. It really is all about reliability after all... even if it is 0.50 cents per post or one dollar per article.
