NS#2 Update: How To Outsource Cheap Articles – How I Paid Only $2 Per Article

I have a good news for this month, since last week, my niche site is ranking #1 in Google for the main keywords. So traffic has increased from 50-60 unique visitors to 60-80 unique visitors per day. My commission from amazon affiliate is also increased. You will see all detail in my next income report.


This month, I’m working on my niche site #2, which I’ve already got a domain name, all keywords for articles, products to promote and outsource all articles for this website. For another project this month, Thai EBook, is almost finished, which only 4 chapters to complete and more than 100 pages with step-by-step guide how to start kindle eBook business. I’ll wrap-up all project progress and tools within my next income report. Well, the title of this post is true! Last 2 weeks I paid only $2 per article and get 10 articles for me from 2 writers, which the total cost was only $20. When I posted the jobs on oDesk, I gave them with specific keywords, instructions and at least 500 words per article. I still need 10-15 articles, with at least 500 words each, for my niche site #2. I will hire one of my writers that I have found him on oDesk to write these articles. All quality of articles were acceptable for what I wanted. These articles are great for blog contents of my niche site and submit to article directory and web 2.0 for quality backlinks. Each article is targeted with very low competition keyword to gain more traffic to my niche site.

OK, Enough for an introduction, let’s jump into our post’s detail!

How to Find the Writers on oDesk


When I started building this blog. I wanted this blog and all projects to be my side-business along with my 9-5 job. So I experienced outsourcing of many jobs. I want you to think like you’re a business owner or project owner. You can’t do everything by yourself. All you need to do is find someone and let them do these tasks for you. I have plans to grow my business next year, so I think it is time to find the right VA (Virtual Assistance) for me. And I’m looking forward for the next 5 years, I have planned to quit my job and being a full-time online entrepreneur. So during this time, I need to build my team and grow my online income as much as I can.

There are many online websites that you can outsource your job, get contents done for your website or eventually VA (Virtual Assistance) with quality and price are acceptable. I’ve experienced outsourcing with few online websites and the places that I like most are fiverr.com, odesk.com and elance.com.

Fiverr.com – I usually outsource for eBook cover, proofreading services and some second tier backlink services.

eLance.com – I usually outsource for high quality contents of main niche site articles, which contents more than 2000 words.

Odesk.com – Last 2 weeks, for the first time that I’ve experienced for affordable, quality contents with very low price.

Last 2 weeks, I needed some minor articles for my niche site #2. This time I wanted to experience a new place to find an affordable quality contents with low price. So I tried oDesk for the first time and this place wasn’t disappointed me at all. After I posted this job on oDesk, I needed to invite the writers around 3-4 times, most of them declined my invite due to low budget, only $10 for 5 articles. But a few writers had accepted my invite within my budget. Then I asked for their writing examples for me to choose. Within 4 days, I hired 2 writers for this project with the same instruction, but only difference group of keywords.


This is step how to outsource your contents with oDesk.

  1. Get a free account with oDesk.com.
  2. Post your job detail.
  3. Review applications with writers who provide written examples only.
  4. Offer job to the writers
  5. Review articles with unique contents, correct grammar and pass Copyscape.
  6. Pay and leave positive feedback with 5 star reviews.

Final Thought

For me, I’m quite impressed and acceptable with the quality of contents with this low price. These articles are what I’m looking for. The quality is not acceptable for major articles, but acceptable for minor articles for a niche site, directory submission and web 2.0 for quality backlinks. Before you go, I want to thank you for all of your support, please stay tuned for the next update on this blog. I appreciate all you guys, wish you all the best and see you next week!

Cheers!  🙂

  • that’s amazing.

  • Nice job RM. I’m glad to hear you’ve had some luck with this. I’ve tried oDesk for article writing in the $2 range and been very unhappy with the results. I find the writers on Elance to do a much better job but I also have to pay between $5 – $8 per article to get the kind of quality I want. I know a lot of it is just luck – who you find and how well they do for you.

    • Welcome back MyMoneyDesign, Mostly I pay around $5 – $10 per article for main article. This time I tried something new and I thought I was lucky too. 🙂
