We’re really excited that our work schedule is filling up in February and March. Lots of new clients have come to us for good quality blog writing services and web content. Many have told us they are relieved to find a content creation company that gives a personal service, having been duped into paying for cheap or unusable copy on a freelancer site.

When investigating some of these sites, I was shocked to find that some charge as little as £1.50 for 500 words. The clients who pay these awfully low prices seem to fall into two categories. Half are genuinely surprised that the articles they receive register in Copyscape with 50% plagiarism (normally from Wikipedia). The other half don’t know where else to hire a copywriter, so they bid up and up in good faith, hoping they’ll finally get web content that’s worth paying for.

Red Robot Media’s mission has always been to provide affordable copywriting services without pricing ourselves so low that we cannot afford to stay in business. Once we’ve written your blogs or content, you keep the copyright, so you can use it in whatever way you wish. We always try to give people an honest alternative to content factories, because content factories aren’t fair to anyone: they don’t pay writers well and rarely supply clients with consistent, usable or professional content.

If your copywriting quotes are too expensive, don’t resort to using a content ‘mill’. Prices on those sites have been driven down to such low levels that good copywriters and web content creators simply refuse to use them. Contact us today if you’d like more advice on copywriting, web content and blogs at a price you can afford.

  1. £1.50 for 500 words?! When you consider the time it will take a good quality copywriter to come up with original, well-researched and creative content you soon realise how this ends up amounting to less the minimum wage. I’ve always been a believer in you get what you pay for.

    1. ‘Buy cheap, buy twice’ is also very true. I honestly read a discussion between various people who were paying $2-$5 per hour, binning the work they received and then using the same site and offering the same price for more badly written articles. I do think many people use those sites because they don’t know who else to ask.
