Day 82 – 20 Articles Outsourced

July 26th, 2009


Tim Burton + Johnny Depp again, looks interesting..

So today I was at another b-day party, this time for my friend’s daughter’s 1 year b-day…When I got back home I was able to get 20 articles outsourced.

Now when I outsource these articles, they take quite a bit of time…What I need to do is adjust the articles a bit as if they have too many periods, they wind up costing way too much…I’ve got to bring each article down to reasonable levels.ย  At this point I edit down most of my 450-480 word articles to $3.30-3.50.

Then once I’ve done that, I’ve got to fill in the form and submit it…It takes about 10-15min per article…This is assuming I’m rewriting my hubs as Infobarrels…if I’m pulling content for hubs, I’ve got to spend time finding the Ezine Article to use as a base(an article >450 words that’s written well).

Now that my schedule is back open, I’m hoping to get more work done tomorrow.ย  I have 10 more articles to outsource for Infobarrels then I need to spend a ton of time posting everything up.

I’m also going to have to look into going into new Hub niches, because it seems like I may not have chosen some good ones based on the results I’ve seen thus far(although it may be to early to tell).ย  I’m going to still backlink all these hubs and see how that works out, but I’m going to be looking for some new niches that will hopefully be more profitable.

Earnings For Today:

  • $53.50 – 1 sale for Site #1 & 1 sale for a sniper site I made 3 weeks ago
  • 526 hops
  • Adsense = $2.88 (small amount from Hubs)

    Mike,

    I just tried human rewriter and found it very close to the original. Do you know if they also will change the structure of the whole article and not just do it sentence by sentence? I am wondering how to improve the quality so it flows better. I know you are pleased with the service. It looks like the snipers are still going strong in revenue which is great.

    Debbie, It’s nowhere near close to the original… Every one of the 50 articles that I’ve got back so far are around 55-60% unique according to DupeCop, you are not going to find better than that as far as re-writes are concerned.

    If you want your re-writes to flow better, you need to provide them with better quality articles.

    If you want something that isn’t similar in any way to the original then you should not be looking at re-writes, you’re going to have to pay more and get things written from scratch.

    Mike,

    Thanks. I think I may have had a poor writer because when I wrote to support they were very apologetic and said they’d be speaking to the writer about the job. I’ll see how another person there does for next articles. Looks forward to seeing your end of the month summary coming up in a few days.

    I have found it hit or miss at Human rewriter, but overall you can’t beat the price. I wish they would allow us to rate the rewrites so the lower quality rewriters could be encouraged to do better.

    As far as grammar is concerned, the writing has always come back sounding like it was written by a native. This coupled with their 36 hour turnaround time(it’s often less than 24h) and the price is why I like them so much…it’s hard to find an outsourcing company which yields content that is grammatically correct consistently.

    The only downfall I found was that at times they didn’t put the kw in the article or the re-write was 300 odd words rather than 450+ but then no outsourcing company is perfect.

    However, if you’re serious about outsourcing (which you need to become eventually in this business) and you put down a large amount of money, they also give you an account manager to assure quality…they will review everything that is sent to you to make sure it is up to par. They even zip up all the work and e-mail it to you.

    If you’re going to outsource, go all out…it’s pointless outsourcing small amounts here and there…it is MUCH better to do all the work yourself and build up your WORK ETHIC.

    It’s only when you can put down significant chunks like $500+ that you should be seriously considering outsourcing as a way to expand your business.
