    * I am sorry I posted in the wrong section. Please can a mod move it to the right one.I am sorry I realized my mistake just now. I will not repeat it*


    I am running a tech blog. It already has many articles in it but I don't have time to update it with fresh new articles.
    So I want to hire some article writers. Its a tech niche ( covers all sort of technology ) so it should be easy to get content.
    I have never hired one before so please PM me with your offers - However you want to be paid ( pay per word, per article ,per month whatever ) .
    I will choose the best offer.

    Thanks

    When you say you will choose the best offer, do you mean you'll choose the lowest bid or you'll choose the candidate suited best for the job?

    It would help to know how many articles you're looking for per writer and what approximate budget you're working with.

    I'm currently slaving myself out for a mere $1.50 per 100 words if you're interested.

    If you mean by that that you will select the least expensive offer, you're making a mistake.

    LOL WHAT?

    The only way this is even remotely possible is if:

    You're going to websites like Elance, asking writers to submit a "paid sample" and never paying them. Or you're using some spinning software that you think works differently than the rest of them.

    This has to be a typo.

    Believe me, I almost spilled my coffee when I saw that rate. Got to agree it is a typo. $1.25/500 words is not real.

    On his profile (I checked him out as a possible pinch hit article/rewriter) he has $1 per 100 words as his going rate, on one of his posts. Therefore I can only assume that it must have been a typo.

    If you are making colossal mistakes such as this, then how can we as potential buyers have confidence in you not to make errors in your articles?

    Either way, you're better off writing for a content mill site. The expectations from cheap clients don't change but at least the cheap content mills will pay $1.50/100 and you don't have to chase people down for payment.

    We all know how the $1 clients always pay upfront, right? It's dangerous to read the Content section of this forum every day, you tend to start becoming bitter.
