Disability retirement means I have health problems which do not allow me to work at the job I used to have. I can work on the computer at home. That is why I am trying to make use of my writing skills to continue working. Thank you for considering my help. Judith

Johnson,

Your project for 30 articles of $500-$1000 is rather a high budget. The average 500 word articles will only cost you $12 an article and this is from a very good writer already. usually their rate is $0.025 per word.

Renato

I was just looking at the elance site, and what I noticed is if you look on the left side of the page where you have the list of all the "potential" elancers, you can filter out the results by adjusting the feedback and/or the number of reviews in the last 6 months. Maybe adjusting those up might help filter out some of the lower quality ones.

(Of course, I'm fairly new to some of this, but I thought that might help.)

Grady you are correct. You can use the filter option to check. If you have time you can always look at the writer's portfolio and the topic of the articles they've written..Just read the client's feedback about the provider.

HI
May I put forward the company I use
I found Elance and others time consuming and hit and miss
$12 for a 550 word article is high
NAA is American $9.95 a month I think and $5.50 per 550 word article and I found them very good, if you are not satisfied with the article you can ask for a rewrite and articles are completed very quickly
I see people in this forum struggling to find good writers

If I am allowed this is my affiliate link, use it if you wish would be good if you did , My family would be happy

If you like check this article written by them and accepted at Ezine Articles

I dont think you can ever hope to have the quality from an outsourced writer that you might hope for (sometimes you're pleasantly surprised) - but its a case of being realistic and realizing what youre articles are for - to be a source of information on your niche and keyword optimized - something that most outsources can manage.

If it's a site that you are particular fussy about then I'd probably suggest hiring a full-time writer or do it yourself if you're able!

I think it's just a matter of finding the right person who can articulate the content you want to put on your site, and part of that depends on the clarity of the objectives and parameters given to the writer.

Of course, there is a matter of "getting what you paid for", so it's also important to pay quality staff accordingly.

In the context of outsourcing (meaning paying someone who lives in a place where the economic standard of living is different from yours), the rate given to outsourced writers should be reasonable enough to support their needs. For instance, consider the wages for an entry level job in the given country and go from there.

It's really just a matter of finding a middle ground - where the rate is not as high as the local one in your own country but higher than the usual standard in the country to be outsourced to. That way, everybody's happy. :)
