It depends on many factors, but the most important thing is the quality of the website content you want. With the latest search engine updates like Google’s Hummingbird, cheap content no longer pays dividends, and in fact, it costs you more money – in terms of lost business opportunities.
The cost of professional website content writing services depends on the following factors:
- The level of expertise required
- The level of quality needed
- The frequency of content updates
- The amount of content your website requires
- The ability and experience of the content writer (or agency) you are planning to hire
Since I normally work with small to medium-sized businesses I will talk about the cost accordingly. Assuming you decide to work with me for writing your website content.
Let’s say you have the following sections for which you need content written:
- Service 1
- Service 2
- Service 3
- About us
Referring to my rates… If you decide to pay me an hourly rate.
If I take 5 hours to complete all the drafts and an extra hour to implement some more changes suggested by you…
The total cost is going to be:
6 x 35 = $ 210
If you want to pay me per page, it’ll be
- Homepage = $ 65
- Service 1 = $ 35
- Service 2 = $ 35
- Service 3 = $ 35
- About us = $ 35
Total (according to per page) = $ 205
So my website content writing services are going to cost you round about the amount calculated above assuming you have 5 pages. If you have more pages, you can calculate the cost accordingly.
Similarly, if you want to pay me per blog post, it will be $ 25 per blog post.
Please keep in mind that if your blog writing requires lots of research I charge my usual hourly rate rather than per blog post rate.
