I have tested a number of content writers myself including those offering such incredible quantities for next to nothing and i ssure you, the quality is what you pay for in a uk writer and its worth every penny. The amount of time i have spent editing poor grammar and spelling has made me a loss on some jobs.

I myself as part of my everyday job do copywriting. It's very true, if they are cheap, the quality of the writing will be cheap. In my field (SEO) it's not so bad sometimes but if we need good quality content I will take over.

In summary, if you want good quality content, go to a UK writer, if you want bulk orders, go to companies in India / The Phillipines.

If you are looking for a good UK content writer feel free to PM me here and I can give you my details

Busy business love outsourcing parts of the work, so if you a good writer, you can earn good money with providing writing services I can earn around $400 each month for writing.

Being UK based doesn't always guarantee that they are good writers, nor does a high price. I used I writer once who was relatively cheap and was an excellent writer (although I didn't tell him he should have been charging more money!) Maybe worth considering as a job on the side though.

I love writing, both creatively and commercially, but dear lord, seeing how cheap articles can get on the sites you mentioned makes me hate it. Creative work can't have such a low value... on the other hand, the articles I've seen on the web very often are pointless jibber-jabber with minimal information and if you write something so shallow, worth 6$ in value, it makes me wonder why are we even trying to make this into a more serious profession?

I did this at Uni for a bit, but the prices seem to have come down a lot since then. Better to try and get relationships with good companies and charge more.

Outsourcing article writing jobs may not be a bad idea. There are many writers from the Philippines who can create compelling articles for a very cheap price. It's just a matter of finding one.

I've used Upwork in the past to find freelance copywriters. The quality of the freelancers can vary massively, but as with anything its a case of 'you get what you pay for'. That being said, if you're a good writer then I imagine you could earn a small fortune through some of these websites!

We have used copyright writers in the past but often found that they didn't really understand the nuances of our particular industry and as such, the writing didn't really work for us. To that end, we now write our own copy and have managed to combine the writing knowledge that we have learned with our technical knowledge of our industry so that it works for us. Best of luck everyone!
