That\’s Competition For You

A few years ago, at a time of very low finances in the Worstall household, I used to write SEO pieces for a couple of the varied companies out there.250 words for $7-$10 was about the market.

No, not a great sum of money but then 250 words of blather with a few keywords thrown in might take 15 minutes. $28-$40 an hour isn\’t that bad an income, even if you were usually only able to get 60-90 minutes of work a day.

I\’ve just had an email from one of the companies I used to work for. They\’re looking for writers at 1 cent a word.

 

Eeek!

Glad I\’m not doing that any more.

    Pay peanuts and you get an infinite number of monkeys and the complete works of Shakespeare.
