Freelance websites

There are loads of these sites such as, and The advantage usually of the freelance content writers on these websites is the price. You can get someone to write content for you at a fraction of the cost of going directly to a content writers own website. But the real issue can be the quality of the work. You get people from all over the world on these sites and for many English is not their first language. They undercut people from the UK, the US and Australia because they have a much cheaper cost of living. But the work they produce can be of really poor quality. The way to try to get the best from these websites is to-

  • Check out which country the writer is from
  • Look at the feedback they have got in the past
  • Ask for samples of their work

At times, these can be the best places to outsource content for a small business.

Classified ads

Places like Craigslist and other classified ad services online and in the press will have people that offer their services as a content writer.
