    Can anyone recommend a quality content writer? I have tried the 5* service at textbroker, as well as a couple of others but the quality has not been good enough.

    Generally I only need short pieces (section introductions, product overviews etc) but I need them to be well researched and well written. The kind of content that you would find in a published magazine, rather than your average minisite.

    Does anyone know where I could find content of this quality and how much I should expect to pay for it?

    Cheers!

    You write good English to start with, so what you really want is an editor to rewrite your words with added snap and pzzazz. Methinks you are fed up of buying stuff you could have written yourself - am I right?

    I'll do rewrites for a penny a word in the original (the final product is usually shorter than the original), or original material for twopence a word.

    If the work is in small pieces, you can pay me by Paypal in £20 "credit chunks" and call for it as we go along.

    I am expensive in copywriting terms, but you get the "edge" of my writing skills. I'll do you a freebie (under 200 words) sample ...

    What's the difference between Aaron Lennon and Nicholas Anelka? Not a lot in terms of ability, but Anelka gets paid a lot more than Lennon ...

    Hi Crabfoot – thanks for the reply.

    Well… I am fed up of paying for stuff I could have written better myself!

    My problem is really just lack of time. So rather than a rewriter, I need someone who will research and write content from scratch. To be honest, some of the subjects are a bit dry, so I’m not expecting lots of pizzazz. I just want it to be well researched and well written.

    Most of the content that I have had written is not only poor in terms of the general English and grammar, but it is clear that the writer knows nothing about the subject!

    Maybe I require different writers for different jobs?
