You get what you pay for

July 6, 2008

As always, the ‘rule of three’ applies: You can have good (accurate, readable, usable, etc.), cheap, or fast—pick two.

In this blog post I saw a while back, the claim is ‘cheap, fast, and high quality’. However, I’d have serious doubts about the quality if their own promotional copy looks like this… You only need to read the first paragraph for an example of the ‘quality’ you’ll get.

Content writer?

You might pay this person $200 for 10,000 words, but you’ll spend a lot more than that on editing those words, or on nullifying the hit your reputation will take.
