Can You Agree To Sell Your 500 Words Article For $1?
My money making strategy for the New Year is to buy 1000 articles each of 500 words at $1 per article. I will post the 1000 articles on Hubpages. I forecast that investing $1000 for 1000 articles on Hubpages will make me $1000 per month. Do you think this strategy of mine will be successful to make me easy money for the next five to ten years?
a 500 word article will typically cost you atleast 2$, if you outsource it to india and the content quality will be mediocre.
If you want some quality work, I think 5$ per article will be the least expense
Khmohsin, $5 per article is a lot of money. Which world do you live in?
You see, Khmohsin, the article has to be written in a good Queen’s English. I figure it out that from the world’s population of 6 billion people, there are thousands of people who are hardly making more than $1 per day but can easily write 5 articles (well written in Queen’s English) per day. I am imagining that all those developing countries that were colonized by Great Britain and are members of the Common Wealth have thousands of such people who speak and write Queen’s English.
I plan to spend $3 to place advertisements in local newspapers for each country. I will then wait for a few days and then the articles will start flowing my way.
I pray and hope the sky is the limit to the earning potential for this money making plan of mine. And I hope I am not day dreaming because sometimes the spirits in me can sometimes make me daydream.
It could work really well as long as you had done your keyword research, and that the articles written were optimized for high volume search terms with low competition. I'm not sure that 500 words is enough for HubPages though. I think you'd do better with 600 x 800 word articles.
Just my two cents - good luck with it
Where can you get good quality articles for $1? You'll find it difficult to get uinique (i.e. not spun) articles for that price.
Also, keword research is vital. If you throw up 1000 hubs on genearl topics you will be lucky to make anything. The benefit of hubs is that they can rank for long tail keywords quickly if you optimise them right.
I currently write articles that are properly written and have specific keywords and density. All of this is researched prior by either myself or a client before writing and then the articles generally get a little added power with back linking. There is a lot of strategy that goes into it and I assure you that $1 per article will get you nothing but headaches. I charge a minimum of $4 and that is on a bulk quantity of atleast 150 articles. This price also does not include research.
A 500-word article for $1? You have got to be kidding. Over my dead body.
It is not a good strategy,It is just a trial and error,a lot of article with no profitable keywords end up with small amount ads clicks and not much sale !Believe me I have experience this !
I am not very sure about that, but you can give it a try!
Just remember that you get what you pay for. At the end of the day, it is better to pay $10 for a decent 500 word article than $1 for a bad article. It is rare to get a good article for just $1. No good writer will do it for so cheap.
I don't know where you are coming from. I am from one of those countries that were colonized by Britain. And for your information, those people who can speak and write the "queens English" are not ready to get $10 for their 500 word article. And by the way, i don't know which newspapers will allow you to advertise for $3. Maybe one of those "Man eats hyena" kind of tabloids.
Will you find writers to crank out $1 articles? Yes. Will they help you make money- that is really questionable. Most writers who understand SEO optimization, which will help you generate those money making clicks, would charge a lot more for 500 word articles. Personally, I'm paid $20 for articles like these in the U.S. Good luck though. Everyone is entitled to their dreams.
I don't think that someone will sell articles for such a lower price, at least not original articles
think it'd be hard to find relevant articles that will make any sense at all for $1. I mean you can definitely get articles that are total nonsense, with spelling and grammatical errors for less than a dollar. However, in the long run you'll be lucky to even gain your dollar back..
So to me, this is an ill-adviced plan.
$1 per article is pretty poor pay for most writers. Professional writers, that is. I know there are people out there who will happily accept this as payment, but they aren't the cream of the crop. I think if you are going to try and earn that much from Hubpages you had better be prepared to try and invest in it to start with, i.e. by investing more in the articles you buy. Good luck and good wishes.
I could help you write articles but not at the $1 landmark... If you're willing to pay $3.50 per article per day *you could even get 4 per day if you're willing to pay $14 for 4 of them*... Mail me if you're interested... Ciao!
Whoooooo! $1 per article! Go to elance.com, or freelancer.com, or oDesk.com. You'll get loads of NON-ENGLISH applicants, and guaranteed you will have to rewrite them ALL.
Our last gig on oDesk was at $12 an article. Go figure. You gets woht u payz four.
Oh yeah, one of our earlier clients had a non-english writer do a bunch of articles at $4 each. We fixed them up for twice that!
where did you get writers for 1$ per 500 word article. that is just insane
There are a ton of AMERICAN websites that will do them for $5 dollars each like fiveones.com Or you could just use some spinning software.
No, definitely not. You can hardly find writers who would grab your offer. It can't even pay someone else's effort.
Think outside the box... In an open forum situation, it is not at all uncommon for compulsive writers to give up 500+ articles for free... How much have you been paid per article here? Different situation, sure, but get the point? Hell, give it a shot... With the right kind of motivation, you won't need to pay a cent, but you will have to live with the fact that you are shoulder-hopping.... Even easy money has a price.
May God wish u all the best. The success in Hub of your articles depends how much popular your Article is. If it is written on very popular topic then you can more than you have mentioned.
no way. I never sell my article to such a lower price. It's very hard to get quality articles at this price. You can get good articles from $5 to 100 or even more. Any way all the best for your money making program.
http://hubpages.com/hub/Get-Paid-To-Write This hub may help you further
A good place to look is Textbroker.com There are writers on that site who are willing to write articles of any size for cheap.
As a writer I will tell you that you are not going to be successful. I say this because most cheap writers that you are going to find will just crank out a bunch of spun and copied crap.
Remember that writing is a job to these guys. The more you pay the better your return. It is simple business philosophy. So, if you are really interested in making money by investing $1000. Try going with 200 articles of 500 words each. Spend $1/100 words or $5 per article.
You get less content, the quality is going to be quite higher and you will be a bit more satisfied.
Yes, it your good strategy to earn income in this way but first search in market that $1 is enough for your articles , may be you earn more for your articles after searching in the market.
Pay people what an article is worth - 20 dollars or so.
It's still a way better investment than stocks, real estate or pretty much anything else.
I know it's very late to answer the question but still I am wanting to give an answer.
Though I am not that much satisfied with $1 per article, but I can do it for you because 1000$ is not bad at the end of the day.
It won't take much time for me to finish the job. But I want to get $10 as soon as I submit you 10 Articles. And another $20 for next 20 articles. I'm telling you this because this is a relationship of trust and the trust will be stronger by this. And I hope you'll pay me through PayPal because it's the only method I feel convenient with.
I am not telling that I'll write every article myself but I'm promising you that each and every one will be thoroughly and easily readable , commentable, understandable & informative. It will be original for sure, you may feel free to check each one with CopyScape.com .
If you are satisfied with the offer, then please contact me.
I don't promise any fixed amount of money you can make from each articles. I don't promise fixed page views. There are totally upto you. But you can easily submit some of the articles to article directories, (such as- ezinearticles.com, for getting backlinks).
Did you ever think that of the 6 billion people in the world most don't have a computer, and of those that do many don't speak english? Of those that do, how many willing to write for $1 a day will write high enough quality posts? Generally the people that write $1 will spin the articles, meaning it will be low quality duplicate content that you can't expect hubpages to approve and keep. It can be done though, but the quality of $1 article is usually bad. If you really want to find such a thing, you probably will have to go through lots of bad writers until you find someone good and to hang onto them, you may have to give them a raise at some point. Plus you could risk losing your hubpage account if you post duplicate, low quality content that many times.
I think Robert Kiyosaki once said, "if you're going to be cheap, be cheap when you're buying liabilities, not assets."
to see just how bad spun articles can be, i've posted some examples here:
http://hubpages.com/hub/Mass-Article-Co … Duplicates
any spun article will take more than $1's worth of your time to repair
Let me get this straight, you're buying articles that somebody else wrote and posting them at Hubpages alongside other members here who write them from scratch. Am I missing something? Here I thought Hubpages was for writers with original material! You might want to consider that if you wrote something original you might make more than $1 per article. Much more in fact. Ever try blogging?
I get so tired on Hubpages of reading all these get-rich-quick formulas without doing any work yourself. You really believe you can buy all the content and make a fortune? Good luck. I'd be damned if I'd put that kind of work out for a lousy buck...no decent writer worth his salt would.
I believe God hardened the heart of that King to show who He (God) was. He had to show Himself to his people. His strength, His power and His faithfulness to them dispite their circumstances. That is why I think He hardened that man's heart.
This makes me wonder how many of the 200+ hubs you have posted here are actually your own work.
As for me, I do not turn over anything 500 words for $1.
My friend... I don't know about you, but I'd much rather gain money from something i did personally, than I paid someone else to do... Plus I thought HubPages had a grudge against people who used content that wasn't theirs in their hubs?
If you want to earn money from the articles so you need great article with correct grammar, no spun, unique and very clear and as i have an experience of two year writing of article i will tell that the person who pays less get worst article and the person who pays more will get the beat article.
Good luck with that, but it is a lazy man's way of making money or attempting to. I am a freelance writer (outside of HubPages) and charge $10 for 100 words. As others have said, "you get what you pay for." I doubt that most of the articles you buy for $1.00 will even meet HubPages standards let alone make you much money.
It's a 10 year old thread. Things were a lot different back then
I do wonder though ... did he ever do it? We are all still writing our own and he might be raking in thousands. LoL
Like that website Fiver. Does it even exist anymore? Did they change their name to Sixer?
I saw this one awhile back because somebody bumped it and wanted to comment on it but didn't because I knew someone would object to bumping an old thread. But anyway, I think it's funny how this post is like a parody of some sort; and a lot of the writers are AWOL.
My son is an artist and he (like most artists) has people ask him to do a free original piece of art for them saying, " It will give you some good exposure." He always tells them that people can die from exposure.
That seems to be a common reason people give me for writing on their blog. Next time that happens I will have to remember his excellent reply!

Do we get paid for writing articles? And how much per article?

I've never written for anyone other than myself, but I've been contacted and asked to write some articles on different (online) platforms on a general topic that is of some interest to me. I have no idea if it would be worth my while and no idea how much to ask for. Anyone here have any...

This is only loosely related to the earnings discussion, but I was wondering the number of average views some of you get per article. I recognize that you can have an article that is very popular, but I am trying to get an average for a not so popular article. I am just trying to see where my range...

What's the point in keeping us from linking to our own work in our articles? That's how we increase traffic to our articles!

So I've been on Medium for a year and Hubpages for six years (my second time). I've come to the conclusion that they can benefit each other.I have twice now earned quite a bit more on hubpages as a result of an article on Medium. A few days ago, I posted a link to one one of my hubpage articles,...
