This is too expensive, I never pay more than $5-8 for 500 words

really, it depends on the writer and your intent with the article. I generally pay $20-30/ article for 800-1000 words, but I also get my money back in the sales that level of quality gives me. I also am very strict on the quality that I get at that price.

If you set really high standards for your business, expect to pay more than the average person does. If you get the right writer for your niche, it can mean all the difference. Although I pay more for each article, every one I have paid for has made its money back in higher conversions and better engagement on my sites.

Quite a good deal Mike. Freelancing sites can really surprise you. There are a lot of good writers out there that you can hire for low cost. Just a tip: When hiring writers that offer you a good deal of price, you better ask for some samples and as much as possible be very concrete to what you really expect so there will no miscommunication on both sides.

To add to Mary's post: make sure to check the feedback on these writers. Sites like eLance, oDesk and Freelancer have a feedback system or review where both the "employer" and the writer rate each other and give feedback. Make sure to go over those along with sample work from the writer.

Have a good day!

Hey Nates,
I get my content from Textbroker now. I've tried Elance and Fiverr and have found that the quality is too sporadic.

On Textbroker I get the 3-star quality and pay around $10 for a 550-600 word article. For a 750-800 word article it is about $13-14. The quality is normally good and if it isn't, you can request a rewrite. If the rewrite is not up to your standards you can reject the article and have another author put on the job for no extra cost. Out of the 80ish articles I have gotten from the site, this has only happened about 3 times.

Another thing I like about Textbroker is the turnaround time. You can request the processing time to just 1 or 2 days if you like and get the articles back quickly.
