Question About Writing Articles For Others

Postby shezz » Sun Jan 13, 2008 8:40 am

I was just wondering if anyone does writing articles for others - PLR Unique articles.

I have been doing a bit of it lately and some of the topics that I've been asked to write on have been a bit strange and some have been difficult and required a lot of research. My husband told me I should be charging more than I am, so just wondering if anyone writes articles for others how much do you charge for it :?:

Hi Shezz,

I'm suddenly snowed under with a writing gig for an online casino review website and they've got me writing 60+ short reviews a week at the moment. They're around 100-150 words for $6 per article.

I know Monika writes a lot for other people - she's about the busiest person I know at the moment which is why she's not around in any of the forums much lately - you could PM her and she'll see it.

Usha is also busy writing so it would be worth PM'ing her too.

If you haven't already heard about it, you must get over to Vic Franqui's blog (bloggerunleashed.com) and read it from start to finish - it will change the way you think about how to make money online!

Its also another reason you won't see Monika or myself around the forums much - the information he is giving out for free is dynamite. Grizzly is another one full of money making information that people are only just waking up to - his blog is in his sig in here somewhere...

Since these two started to get known about a month ago, things have changed a helluva lot - be prepared for Vic's bad language, as he doesn't pull any punches!

Good luck with your writing.
Terry

Hey Terry I did notice the forum is fairly quiet, I will have to go into that forum you mentioned and have a read.

$6 for a 100 - 150 word article is great, I have run a couple of wso's and written at $6 per article for 400-500 words, I have set up a page on my site where people can order articles and I put that at $7.50 per article, do you think that's enough? I don't want to go too high incase I don't get any orders.

That's a tough decision to make but you shouldn't sell yourself short either. I think $7.50 is way too cheap especially for 500 words. I'd be inclined to charge more - in fact I actually put my prices deliberately high so if anyone really wants me they have to pay!

If you saw them you'd be shocked - I charge 10c a word from my blog so that'd be $50 for a 500 word article! I'm not surprised no one has asked for one that size yet, but I did just do a blog review for $15 that was just over 150 words.

For bulk work its obviously less, but I still don't think you should go much less than 5c a word as a yardstick.

Sure there are people around who will work for peanuts, but its not often you'll get a native English speaker who writes well that will accept very low rates. You only have to look at the awful quality of content on some sites to see who paid peanuts and got monkeys! :lol:

Hey Terry...congrats on the casino reviews! Some good money there. :)

And Shezz...I too think that is very cheap for a 500 word article. :?

I am quite busy myself. I just finished moving my sites to Host Gator.

Hmm well perhaps I'll have to put up my prices, I guess I was worried that if I put the price too high I wouldn't get any work. Maybe on my site I'll put the prices up and keep the low prices for the occasional wso.
