As with every writing service, the calculated price per word always converts into time, spent on the content. While a quick writer can easily write up to 1000 words per hour, he might not deliver the same quality as if he would write only 500. Please consider this when requesting a quote and be very specific regarding the quality requirements for your project.

For some websites, simple content might be enough, which can be delivered at only 0,05 $ per word. For websites with standard content we recommend a word price of 0,07 $. For premium content or expert writing, the budget should not be less than 0,10 $ - 0,15 $ per word, to guarantee the best possible traffic growth and conversion.
