    Using Constant-Content for content

    Does anyone have any experience of buying (or even selling) content, articles, reviews, etc on constant-content.com? What's the site's reputation in your experience in terms of quality versus cost?

    I agree with juries23. I guess it would be the best thing to do. I also don't buy content. I'd rather get tired and make my own content than buy. Also, hiring a content writer can be an option rather than buying one.

    The question in this thread is to discuss your experience with Constant Content. Please keep your posts relevant to the thread topic and meaningful to the discussion. Saying you have no experience adds nothing. The only post that has any merit so far is the one quoted. ^ At least bamaboy went out and found something to help the op answer his question.

    When you buy content from Constant Content you are hiring a writer. In fact, you can choose from a number of writing styles you find on their site. Constant content is not an article depository like ezine articles. It's a site where you can find unique content for your site and connect with a writer.

    I have never used Constant Content, but I believe the owner and developer of the site is SitePoint member Chris Ross.

    This is a better strategy. How can you ever be sure that the same content you purchased will not be recycled and given to another person.

    Personally, I think it is better to be focused and consistent with a single content writer so your themes make more sense across entire site(s). When I have bought content from different sources, it made my site feel like a bunch of random pages slapped together. Just my 2 cents

    I suppose no one really has a huge amount of experience of using CC.
    Thanks Shyflower, for keeping it on topic (and moving it as I think I messed up and put it in the wrong area).

    I've bought articles there a few times. I only buy the full rights of articles nobody else has so that they are unique to the site I publish them on. The articles do disappear from the site after they're purchased with unique or full rights. A lot of the articles are mediocre, but there are a few good authors that contribute there if you're willing to pay the higher end of the scale, which is still cheap there.

    The problem with self writing is you cannot have 100 or so article in a month. I prefer outsourcing

    I have experience as a writer on Constant Content (and a few other freelancing sites) and from what I have seen the articles there are far better than at other sites.

    From a buyer perspective it is easy for webmasters to specify the content they need, including both desired word count and price range. The typical response to public requests is very high, allowing buyers to pick and choose the content they want, with no obligation to purchase articles that are not needed.

    If you'd like to check out my work there just look under penname beconrad.

    Take care,
    Bonnie

    Just an FYI - I no longer own this site, I sold it last year. The site is still a great resource for people looking for good content, the new owners are good people and they have only improved the website. I created the site to find talented writers for myself and I can safely say that the site is full of talented writers.

    it is not bad to buy a content for your site but it is much better if you create your own content . Search engines wants unique and fresh content.

    making your own content is not "better"... its cheaper but not better. I don't think you read the thread, I guess this is what I get for digging up an old thread, sorry all.

    Thanks Chris, I'm glad you dug the thread up. By way of an update, I've since joined CC as an author (under a differenet name) and have quite a few sales already in a short period. I like the site a lot.

    If you have the budget to spend, buying content from CC is a good idea. They provide top-notch, QUALITY articles, but a bit more costly than other article providers out there. I think an article at CC costs $30. You can get articles from freelancer sites for as low as $5 per article.

    I write for Constant Content. I may be able to shed some insight on buying articles there.

    What I like best about the site is their dedication to quality. Not every article that writers submit can be approved. Editors will return articles for the slightest errors. This is an advantage for potential buyers.

    They also indicate how many times an article has been sold for usage so you know how many sites have the same content. If you can afford to buy full rights, you should. You won't regret the level of quality of the articles.

    A note of caution though. This is not the site to go to if you are looking for keyword rich content. All the articles there contain serious information that are not peppered with targeted keywords.

    As one of the authors on Constant Content, here are six reasons you SHOULD buy your content from this website:
    1 - You have access to the articles straight away - no waiting for a freelancer to bid and then complete your project several weeks down the track.
    2 - Articles are all checked for quality and uniqueness, so you can be assured you won't find typos in your articles.
    3 - Constant Content gives you options to request SEO or specialised content from one author (private request) or from everyone who is interested (public request).
    4 - You only have to buy the articles you want, even if someone has written for a public request.
    5 - Full rights licences allow you to change the article, put your own name on it, and be assured that NO ONE else will be able to purchase or publish the article.
    6 - Quality writers only submit to Constant Content, and the prices are still very reasonable for the articles. Why waste time writing mediocre articles yourself when you can buy from the experts at Constant Content?

    Thumbs up

    I have a good amount of luck selling content that I've written on Constant Content. I do however sometimes get a little frustrated with the turnaround to getting things approved by the site owner especially for requested pieces, although I know he does his best to review it and approve it within a few days.

    I would recommend it to anyone looking for a quick article or image. Or if you have a specific request, you can add it and get someone to write for you in a relatively short period of time.

    By the way, my account name on Constant Content is: TaylorResources

    I've put up one article there years ago, when they just started out. About a year ago I got a nice email saying it was sold - it was a nice surprise, as I had forgotten all about it I can't say much else about them, just that they have won my trust by paying me years later and keeping to their word.
