Truth is that it depends.
First of all I need to understand your business, your goals and more importantly what your customers are looking for. Words on a topic that you think might relate to your audience just don’t make sense. A sound strategy and research are needed to support the words, without them you might as well just set fire to your money as there will be no ROI.
You can go to a content mill like Upwork or Fivverr and pay pennies per word, but you know the saying ‘you get what you pay for’. If a simple re-write of previously churned out materials is all you need. It could take and should take at least a half hour to ensure that the work is plagiarism free and can pass copyscape at the very least.
Good website content can be re-purposed into, a brochure, parts of a sales presentation, a collection of posts for social media, it can also be used for podcasts, video scripts or simply serve as an inspiration for a tutorial or even a speech. Good content writing is worth is weight in gold and if you think carefully and strategically about what you need and what the content can be re-purposed for you will come to the conclusion that the value of good copy is far more than you ever considered.
Good content writing begins with good research and I guarantee that my research is 100% accurate and up to date.
I charge .50 cents per word which includes SEO, Keywords, Images, graphics and solid research.
Good content takes whatever time it takes but for the most part a 1000 word blog piece will run around an average of 4-5 hours. This includes research, fact checking, writing a draft, re-writing, editing, revising, editing, proofing and making sure you as the customer are happy with the piece.
