To scale an Amazon affiliate website and take your earnings to the next level you'll need to outsource your content creation and finding good quality content writers for your Amazon affiliate website can feel like a minefield sometimes.
In this post we'll cover some of the possible places you can source content. We'll cover both buying from content writing freelancers and from businesses that specialise in content creation. We'll not only cover places you can purchase content but also the steps you can take to get the best content possible and reduce the risk of being scammed online.
When buying content for your Amazon affiliate website you only really have two types of sources. Either individuals (freelancers) or companies that sell content. Firstly let's cover the pros and cons of these two types of content sources.
Advantages of using content Freelancers
We'll start off with hiring freelance content writers first. Let's cover the most popular places to find them.
Facebook groups are great places to find freelancer content writers for your Amazon affiliate websites. Simply post your requirements into relevant Facebook groups and ask to comment if they're interested. This helps with engagement on your post so it will appear in more user's timelines. People Per Hour / FreeLancer / UpWork
I've grouped these three websites into one category. You simply submit your requirements and people bid on the work. Be careful because you get what you pay for, the cheapest is normally the lowest quality but we'll cover shortly how to avoid this. iWriter
iWriter is like the sites above but specifically designed for buying website content and because of this they have things like "writer pools" where if you pay for content but don't like whats delivered then you can get another article from the pool of writers. So you never thave to take an article from a writer that you are not totally happy with. BlackHatWorld / Warrior Forum / Digital Point
Most internet marketing and search engine optimisation forums will have their own marketplaces where you can buy and sell services. Most offer SEO content writing services to members.
When you buy content for your Amazon affiliate website from a freelancer you are essentially buying it from an individual. This individual could disappear after taking your money. Let's go over a few simple tips to minimise the risk of getting scammed.
Ask to see previous work that you can verify its theirs
Make sure you use a payment method that is reversible such as Paypal. If you do use Paypal don't pay them using the "family and friends" method as there is no protection for this.
If you are making a bulk order ask to pay in chunks upon delivery
Finding good content writing companies is very similar to finding good freelance content writers. You simply have to check how established they are and ask for previous work.
There are a few simple tips you can follow to ensure you get the best content possible when ordering.
