Just like most products in the world, content writing or blog writing has a wide range of value attached to it.
You can go to the local market and pick a perfume bottle for $10 or you can go to a high end mall and pick up a $200 Issey Miyake.
There will definitely be a difference in terms of quality, the smell, how long the smell lasts and the impact it has on other people.
I have friends who argue, that the perfume Industry is a sham and there’s no difference between a high end perfume and a mediocre perfume. That is an understandable argument. The value isn’t clear.
But the Content writing / SEO world is very very different. Especially in Singapore.
The difference between a high quality post and a low quality piece is visible. You can feel it, when you are reading the material and you’ll know its worth.
But what it does to your business is even more telling. So what is an article worth to you?
Let’s help you out with that.
Before we get to the value of an article. We need to understand the players in the market.
The Under Cutters
If you really want an article written for cheap you can. You jump to Fiverr search for SEO article writing services, you’ll get a list of services that do this. The price will range from $5 to $100 and sometimes even more.
The turnaround time will be super quick and you will have a full and ready article for $10. But what does it do to your business?
Nothing. Nada. Zilch.
It’s just a piece of content that you would put on your blog. Nothing more, nothing less.
So why do people choose Fiverr writing services?
There’s nothing to it, other than it being cheap.
The value provided by a person who charges quite less is nothing other than being the cheapest in the market.
The next in the list of service providers are the ones who do a bit more than the undercutters. They’ll do a basic keyword research. They’ll try to identify what keywords to target and what has lesser competition and so on.
They’ll write a beautiful article that will be grammatically correct and will have all the necessary keywords and on site SEO in place.
They’ll push out the article on social media and other channels and they’ll cross the T’s and dot the I’s.
Will it work?
It might and it might not.
SEO is much more than doing just the basics. There are lot of strategies to be implemented and it has a bit of secret sauce to it.
The inbetweeners will cost you, but don’t guarantee results.
