How To Get Cheap Articles

I decided to run a little test on a new way of getting ridiculously cheap article writing services.  My target was to get articles that were 300 to 500 words in length written for $3 a pop.  I know that $5 per article is considered cheap, so I figured this was going to be a bit of a stretch, but what did I have to lose.  So first off, where is it that I thought I could have articles written for $3 a pop you ask?  Everybody’s favorite free classified ad portal… Craigslist!

Basically what I did was make a short post in the Gigs section of Craigslist under “writing” in the nearest city to me.  I just stated that I was looking for a ghostwriter who was literate and had average to above average writing skills to work with me, writing on various topics.  The writing would be articles of 300 to 500 words and I would pay $3/article.

I did not expect to have a whole lot of replies, but by the end of 2 days, I had been contacted by 6 interested writers, all of which were actually excited at the prospect of being paid for their writing… even just $3!

As we speak, I am waiting for a sample article from each of them and have high hopes for their abilities.  If it does not pan out, I can post again in a different city or in another week or two.  This is not quite a sure fire way, but it is pretty close.  You would be amazed the amount of work at home moms, college students or just plain bored people who would love to write for just a couple extra bucks.

Don’t tell this to too many people or the Craigslist writing gigs market could get a little crowded, but try it out for yourself and hopefully you will get as good of results as I have.
