i am looking for article ghostwriters and have purchased a few articles to find a good quality company. i would like to make a few points because i have noticed a few things that could save some people on this forum a headache.
firstly, make sure you purchase a cheap sample of your ghostwriter or copywriter's work. if you are looking for a few 1000 words, please don't purchase this length straight away because you will loose your money if youn don't like it. purchase a short article based on the same subject for a fraction of the cost.
this will show you the quality of work they are willing to put in.
secondly, ask the site owner if they have professional writers or if they send your copy requests to freelance copywriters, i dont doubt that there are some fantastic freelance writers out there, but my experiece has been more positive with companies that have their own professional writers.
so just remember to order the cheapest copy from a company to test their writing ability.
NB stephen B:
Freelance writers are
professional writers. And more often than not, talented inexpensive text and article writers sit with no assignments while "professional" writers work in cubicles, in groups baking up text that is cooked up on software and reads dull. Then, the webmaster complains to the freelancers they didn't use about how much it cost them. And if you think you are going to get the same quality of writing on a 500 word assignment on a 1,000 word assignment, the error of your thinking is right there. If i am balancing four jobs, the one with the three hundred thousand words get done first. And best.
My post was to complain about the many scam ads now where people are duped into visiting sites that have no earnings value so the webmaster can get the clicks. I believe that is dishonest. This is employment spam.
Also, i have burned by so many people who play games with payment the writer is always sticking their neck out.
