Would you pay for somebody to write for you?
Would you pay for quality articles to be written for you to use on your website, blogs, HubPages, Squidoo etc? And how much would you pay for a quality 1500 word article?
the reason why I am on hubpages is to get paid not to pay others!
That would be counterproductive. Hubpages should attract the budding writer in all of us - regardless of topic, just focus, apply yourself and you should be able to write a concise piece of work that is based on your own experiences, interests and perspective. I think the focus should be on your enjoyment of writing, choosing topics you are interested in as opposed to the monetary gain.
I don't have enough money or resources for that, and I'm not in a position to pay anyone to write for me anyways.
So the answer for now is, no.
I would pay to get articles written for my websites and blogs; but not anymore for hubpages as hubs are losing their rankings since the panda update.
I don't do, I'm spending nice time writing and reacting here and I used to be myself.
Have to answer "No," to that one. As it is, I do a helluva lot of editing of other people's work free of charge. I quite enjoy it, provided they don't sent me very long manuscripts in one hit. Just finished doing one, in fact, for an 80 year old ex sea captain. Quite interesting.
Nope. Frankly, I think you're shouting into a gale if you expect to get any takers on Hubpages. But keep trying...you never know.
(lol @ Tusitala Tom's comment)
Let me just clarify....
I AM NOT ASKING FOR YOUR MONEY TO WRITE HUBS
Poor choice of words on my part...sorry.
But I WAS wondering whether or not people would consider paying for an article that they would - at the end of the day - profit from. More hubs/more website content content equals more traffic and therefore more revenue.
Personally, no, I wouldn't consider it and I think the majority of people here at hubpages wouldn't either - we write because we love to and wouldn't miss that for the world.
However...from a webmasters (and even a bloggers) point of view...we are always looking for more content.
More content means more pages more keywords, the more likely someone will stumble across your website and buy what you're selling.
In which case, yeah, I would probably consider a high quality article at a reasonable price.
I think if you are submitting articles to magazines that pay good rates instead of writing for helium or hubpages and hoping to make money from commissions off of google adsense, then paying a ghostwriter is an attractive option.
There are many good writers who really should buy or checkout a copy of the Writer's Market and see which publications might be a good fit.
Also, it would be relatively easy for writer's to market themselves as copywriters or content specialists for other sites and charge by the hour ($50 and up) or by the project.
This is more of a hobby for me than it is a lucrative business (in fact, I've just started with Google Adsense), so I would say no.
I think we all would if we could. The main reason we are here means we aren't in the position to do so. That's what most major million dollars companies do anyways. That is how they crush competition.
No, absolutely not - I have readers, and I have ethics. My conscious would never stop bothering me, and my readers would easily see that it wasn't me writing.
of course. as a freelancer there are times when you may need to outsource. getting a ghostwriter or something similar may be needed. finding a great writer that you want to put your name on the byline is the issue.
if you want quality-it will cost you. searching for a great writer is also a chore. for a quality 1500 article depends on research needed, writer experience, etc. hiring a writer is similar to hiring any freelancer for work.
you can get someone to write a 500 word article for you for $8 bucks.
I write because I love to write and don't get paid so far but no I would never pay anyone.
I would not pay to have someone write for me. I have been flagged on here and have had rude comments left for me and still I would not have No One Write for me ! However you could give them a candy bar as a reward. If you know someone that can write good then why don't you tell them about hubpage?
i wouldn't want to pay ordinarily except if it is the best solution at the time...the payment should be commensurate with the effort but not at my detriment.
his or her thoughts is different from yourself, or even better. But its not original, if you've got to get it right, do it yourself.
Can you write intelligent articles about how to create effective landing pages? For your questions $12 is enough to pay for one content if you are fulfill your quality of contents.
Sorry, in this case I'm the one who'd be paid to write them. ^^;
However, from a slightly old article, I saw price ranged for children's bible school material at .05-.07 per word. I suppose you estimate from there. ^^
The answer is "No" . I can always try to write quality articles myself , if I cannot I would rather not write but cannot think of having something written for me . Even if someone offers to write for me free of charge I would not accept. I strongly believe that what you write, whether it is good or not so good in quality it is Original and more precious to you than an article which is superb in quality but has been written for you by some one else.
I would pay, I do pay actually for writings for my blog and other outlets. It is important to find a quality writer who will research the topic and talk about the topic in a fair method.
1500 words, maybe $15 to answer your question.
Well true that writting is an art and people only write to satisfy their souls appetite but i believe that the stomachs appetide needs to be satisfied too...thus one should be paid for the hard work one puts in.

Lately, I've been checking the feed. I've flagged a couple of articles related to spamming one's own business. After looking more closely, I've also noticed published articles (not even articles) that most would consider extremely sub-standard. I'll be the first to admit that I'm...

I just read a Hub that said that the author was going to go to the freelance website and pay people to write articles for him that he would put on HubPages to make himself money from. That can't be okay with the HubPages site, is it? A couple of people commented, including an author that I have...

Is the growth sustainable? When I arrived 4 months ago, we had 400,000 hubs. What is it now, 500,000? Does this site really benefit from people writing almost identical hubs on the same topics?When somebody arrives they are told to write, write, write, write. 30 in 30 basically. I am being a little...

Does anyone know any more sites that pay per article, and not page view, that are not scams?
