How do you fancy an hourly wage of $7? Is $5 more to your liking?

It’s surprising how many people who outsource expect freelance writers to work at those rates and how many freelancers meet their expectations.

I constantly see the most bizarre rates offered in ads for online writers...and then I see the posts those low paid writers create. It's little surprise this content isn't high quality. The thing to consider is that, if your business is dependent on quality content, you're short changing your business by paying such low rates. Quality content is an investment in your business. If your marketing is dependent upon content, lack of quality will decrease its effectiveness...and probably your success.

Completely agree with this article. Writers who are willing to be paid $5 for a 500 words article are aplenty but writers who are willing to do a ton of research, use the correct words and styles can be rare and in some industries, it's not always about the money.
