Finding writers

Discussion in 'Copywriting' started by Melisa455, Jan 26, 2015.

    Hi all,
    SEMrush
    I am looking for writers to write some articles for me.

    But the problem with buying articles are that I am worried :
    1)unicode symbols
    2)copyright

    Of course, we can check for copyright using copyscape.
    But unicode symbols are hard to tell and more tedious to check.

    How do you find good writers? And how much do you pay for good writers?

    You seem to be a bit confused. Copyscape doesn't check for 'Copyrights' but for plagiarism. When you buy articles, make sure you buy them along with the rights. Once you've paid completely what the writer charges you for their work, it is entirely up to you how to use the content.
    Unicode characters can only be a problem if your text editor/word processor doesn't support 8/16/32-bit character encoding, which is a very rare case. Check your system charset to see if those characters are supported or not. There are many online and offline utilities that convert unicode to user-compatible encoding. Google 'unicode convertors' and you'll find them.
    As for the pay, there is no standard criteria against which you can evaluate what amount is fair. It differs according to and depends on every individual writer, project and client. Just remember that the more you pay, the better quality you get. Don't expect high-quality content for peanuts just because you see a lot of people doing it esp. here or at similar places.
    How and where can you find writers? Check this thread for suggestions - https://forums.digitalpoint.com/threads/where-can-i-find-content-writers-for-my-website.2742697/.

    Hope it helps.

    You may want to research Ezine Articles, site I heard of a few years ago and looks like they still exist; they acquire what they describe as original articles from authors on a variety of topics for syndicated publication; the authors understand that same article may appear in several venues. It is a platform for authors to get their name out there, I'm not sure how it would benefit site owners' page rank, seo etc . . . so using an Ezine article may not be what you need, however it might give you a direction to go for finding writers . . .

    You could look for article writers on freelancing websites, such as odesk or elance. There the freelancers are given grades and recommendations by the people who hired them. Good luck!

    Have many sites for find writers and also have many sites for checking the quality if the text. For example: http://www.paperrater.com/plagiarism_checker
    Can try to find in google by yourself.

    you can get some good articles on fiverr.com but you have to hunt for the best gigs and deal with a few ones that are a waste of time

    Don't go for the cheapest. You'll end up getting burned with
    ridiculous, unreadable, and spun to death articles.

    You want good articles? Then you'll have to pay good money...

    ... I'm talking about paying anywhere from $7-10 per 500 word
    article on sites like Elance and Freelancer.

    Hope this helps out :)
