If you got hired to write an average of 5,000-10,000 words per day..
Hey content writers and freelancers!
Lately I've been thinking about content writing related services and I've seen many people who offers article writing services for as low as $0,01 per word all the way up to literally $5 per word or something. (Perhaps not that much, but seriously A LOT).
And as I am active in multiple internet marketing forums and I have direct contact with multiple freelancers and content writers on a daily basis, I'm curious to know how people are reasoning when they come up with their prices.
Mostly, I can see people who offers 300-500 word articles for a certain price for instance. But when I'm talking with experienced writers, most of them claims to do the opposite. They don't charge for articles like that at all. And they would never charge per word either.
What they do, is to sell a launch-ready article, in whatever niche they're writing about, for a fixed price. They agree on $50 for instance, and they write until the article is ready. No matter if it contains 300 words or 50,000 words.
And honestly speaking, that sounds great indeed. Especially if you want articles in a certain niche, but how do these people get orders? - I mean, they can't just state "I will write an article in your niche" for $XX. - And tell people that they will write it until it's ready? - It seems a bit odd to me.
That's why I wanted to hear your opinions.
Let's say you'll get hired to write 5,000-10,000 words per day. In various niches. About different things. In one or basically 50 different articles or posts.
- How much would you charge for something like that?
- And how would you come up with the price?
