I’m aware of word agents, but what other options do I have that handles this level of workload?

any suggestions are appreciated. I tried the search function on here and found only one person, perhaps i didnt search deep enough?

Hi @AhFreshMeat,

My content writing team currently has bandwidth to accommodate this. Let me know if you're interested. I'll PM links to our samples. Thanks! :smile:

I'm talking to a content agency for 100 articles/week and can give you their contact if you wish.

You can also hire a VA and have that VA be the liaison between you and the writers. Then you can find the writers on Fiverr or UpWork and have your own staff. It depends on how long you want the writers for and who the writers are and their background (If you want Microwave energy experts, you'll have to find them yourself) and how well trained they need to be. In house if they need to have high qualifications and training. External if anyone can write the article if they just know how to write.

Content companies blow. Over priced and awkward to deal with. Never seen the attraction.

spend a few weeks hiring and firing fast on upwork. Put together a solid team and bonus the shit out of the good ones. Before you know it you’ll have a solid team.

How big of a bonus and how often do you give one?

I have a new writer. She started at $50 per article for 1k-1.5k words. Upped her to $60 per post after about a month. Would like to keep her happy without breaking the bank. I figure eventually I would up her pay to $70 per post, but bonuses here and there would probably help in the meantime.

Thats a lot already in my book although it totally depends on niche, level of detail etc.

I set performance based bonuses - eg. Submit on time every time for three months and get $500 bonus, no revisions needed for 1 month - $200 bonus etc.

Then I pay bonuses on birthdays and Christmas. Plus one worker was off for a week for a hospital thing and I paid her the full week anyway which she could not believe and meant a lot to her. She has been with me for years so it was a small gesture but meant a lot and she was super keen to get back to work to payback the goodwill.

Treat people right and they will stick with you for years.

Continuing with the discussion here, generalist SEO writers are in my experience the quickest to burn out.
And holiday bonuses along with above-standard wages don't often prevent this, at least in a repeatable way.
Though I also notice a similar pattern across jobs that require creative tasks done each day, such as telesales and tech dev ...

I know because in 2005, my first job after becoming blind was one. For almost one full year, I was writing 20K words per week, all about online casinos, blackjack and poker.
And I was paid 4x above-standard wages, on top of holiday bonuses and health insurance as a regular employee, because I was producing more than twice the weekly quota of one full timer at my employer's ...

But during that time, those perks didn't stop me from building my business with a team of content writers, specializing in particular industries and niches that really interested them.
And I also focused my business on those industries and niches, since these also interested me.
That's because when my dire need for money to accommodate day-to-day expenses became much quicker and easier for me to fend off, my interest in continuing at my job also waned exponentially ...

So after hiring hundreds of employees for the past 2 decades at my business, I make it a point to vary assignments of my content writing teams based on the interests and specializations of each writer.
And of course, I still balance that out with higher than industry standard wages and go a little beyond government-mandated holiday bonuses and packages ...

I actually have a team of writers for my company that could contribute, maybe 60 pieces of content monthly if you're paying up front OR we could do some sort of weekly deal

It also depends on prices you are willing to pay for content and level of quality writing you want

Let me know if you still need writers. Lets talk and see if I can bang a deal out for you.
