In my previous post, Content Writing – You’ve Been Doing it all Wrong, I’ve talked about the common mistakes writers commit when writing, publishing and marketing their content. However, not all business owners have all the time in the world to research on their topics and come up with an article that is enough to feed their readers with information. Although not everybody is blessed with spare hours, this doesn’t mean that content marketing should be disregarded. There are many other options and the next workaround for this is finding the best article writers or an article writing service that you trust and stick with.
If you’re looking for cheap article writing services, iWriter is a good place to start looking. I personally recommend using this service because you don’t have to pay for an article that you don’t like. This means that before money is taken from your account, you have to approve an article that has been written for you. If you’re satisfied with the content, you may approve the article. Otherwise, you may send it back for revisions, or reject the article so other writers may claim the assigment.
Upon submitting a writing assignment, it will be added to the pool of projects writers can choose from. The rates may vary depending on the type of writer you’d like to claim your assignment. There are three types namely:
- Standard – all new writers start here. Rates are cheaper, but it also means that everyone with a standard rating can claim your project and write for you.
- Premium – if you’re a little bit picky about the content and wanted more experienced writers to claim your project, this is the writer rating that’s right for you. All writers with an average rating of 4.1 or higher with at least 30 ratings in their account are qualified to take premium projects. Of course, expect the articles to be a little bit expensive than the standard ones as the writers under this category are more experienced and are proven to be better amongst the pool of standard writers.
- Elite – this is the highest type of article category / writer that you can find on this site. If you are meticulous and want only the best writers, submitting projects and making it available for Elite writers is the most suitable option for you. Writers with 4.6 rating or more with 30 reviews on their account are part of this pool.
If you find a good writer and wanted to give him / her future projects, you can always hire them and add to your favorites for future reference. Basically, the platform is easy to use. You submit a project, wait for a writer to claim and submit your assignment, review, approve, revise and / or reject the article. Once you’ve approved a writing assignment, you’ll see a downloadable version of that content on your account.
Creating an account is free – there are no membership fees that you have to pay. As discussed earlier, you only pay for articles you like and ordered, that’s it.
Everything for $5 – this is what Fiverr is all about. You’ll see a variety of gigs – logo design, fan art, voice-overs and everything that you can actually think of. As a matter of fact, you’ll see hilarious gifts / gigs which you can even order for personal use.
Just look for article, writing services and similar keywords and you’ll be presented with a bunch of gigs that you can choose from. You may filter gigs depending on their rating, but you also have to consider checking the member’s feedback and level. Level 2 sellers and above would be my preference, but if I find a Level 1 seller with a promising article writing gig, I’ll give it a try.
Nothing beats a quality content writing service that is offered at a cheap price. If you’re not comfortable with the above-mentioned platforms, ordering from this site is a must. The support is awesome, rates are cheap (especially if you order in bulk), and you’ll most of the time, articles you’ve ordered will be delivered in as fast as 48 hours, or even less! Written by native speakers, you can be assured that all your articles will be delivered to you exceeding your expectations.
These three are my preferred websites to go to whenever I need a quick article or whenever I don’t have the time to write content. This gives me more content to use for my marketing needs, and at the same time, gives me enough articles to post to my personal blog, submit for guest posting or even for press releases. Give it a try. Do you have other suggested sites? Let me know what you think.
Are you familiar with Jonathan Leger? Perhaps Article Builder, or The Best Spinner rings a bell? Yes, he’s a legend in the internet marketing industry, and he has his own article writing service. So far, this is my favorite site, as the turnaround time is rather quick, not to mention everyone in his pool of writers is screened, ensuring that they’re native English writers only.
(Update: This article writing service has more features and updates, and I’ll be talking about it in a separate post)
Creating your account is free – and as a bonus, the first article you’ll order is only 10 cents! Quality and cheap – who even thought that these two can go well together?
