Article Writing Service: The Advantages

article writing

There are a fairly large number of web site owners that have the ability and experience to comfortably write high quality content that is search engine optimized for their own web site. However, when it comes time, many of these business individuals still trust article writing services to handle their content. Why is this so?

It is obvious how important it is for poor article writers to utilize the many benefits of an experienced article writing service. In addition, web site owners that are good at writing still have almost as many disadvantages as do individuals that are poor at writing.

Article Writing Services and Time Constraints

One of the primary advantages of using an article writing service is to save time. Web site owners have a great deal of tasks and responsibilities that they have to manage on a daily basis. Considering that it takes the average good article writer about an hour to research, draft and edit 1,000 words, building a web site that requires 50,000 words can be a significant draw on time. Remember, one hour is the usual speed of a professional writer, not any writer.

It may be tempting to think that writing your own web site content is free. However, this is far from the truth as "time is money". Consider the specifics of such a task:

  • Add 10 hours to the 50 hour total for non-professional writing.
  • For most web site developers, this totals about two weeks of work.
  • Estimate how much an hour of your time is worth: For example $40.00.
  • Add in time lost in content preparation vs. profitable gain: For example $4.00 per 1,000 words
  • The total amount of money that you lose by writing your own content is: $2,200
  • Remember that, after the content is prepared, you must also publish it and possibly hire an editor. This could quickly add up to another $1,000 in time lost and fees.
  • The average writing service can prepare and publish the same content in about 3 days for about the same price.

Article Writing Service and Professional Writing

When you choose to hire a professional article writing service to handle your content, you can be sure that your content will be well written and focused every time. The content will be released to you as if you wrote it (hence, ghost writing) and you do not have to worry about mistakes such a grammatical or spelling errors that can plague Internet writing. You also gain a fresh perspective into the content to bring some new ideas to the table.

Well written content is much more likely to work when you are not. In can attract links from other web sites or blogs, ensure good traffic from search engines and impress visitors into trusting their money with you by ordering your products or services. Finally, you can focus your efforts on building your web site and refining your business while an outside company handles your expansion.
