Content writing industry of Pakistan needs to grow out of this 0.5 PKR mindset. The major competition we have is our Bangladeshi friends or indian content creators who literally do it for free. The challenge is that most content writing services providers, after scraping a few articles from paid softwares like Article Forge, Article Builder, Kontent Machine, SEO Content Machine or Ultra Spinnable Articles and having spun them by paraphrasing to avoid plagiarism they go on to Grammarly to make the content sound more human. No real research but keyword stuffing.
Before I head forward, I have been working as a freelance content writer for the last 6 years. So many times the I articles I wrote that have trended.
If you decided to take a full-time job in blog content writing services, you will be shocked to know that the salary content writing companies be offering you to be 1/4th of what you can earn through freelance writing and the workload is double. I think the writers who take their work seriously, endeavor to excel as well.
What Content Writing Services Pakistan is Lacking
The so-called writers we find here and there do not deliver what they promise. And, I hardly believe they are apt to write. They will ghost you when you contact them right before the due submission date. Their content will almost always lack in research and organization. Their grammar mistakes are often so abound that one would have to rewrite the whole content anew. They are enthusiastic at the start, and they make promises they cannot fulfill and the list goes on.
Here is what I found out:
1) A mistake in tenses is a cardinal sin in English language and most of the writers have literally no idea about it.
2) Using difficult or fancy synonyms is an art, because not every word fits in a context and if you are using a synonym, you may have to use a different preposition as well. Most writers don’t know how to use synonyms.
3) Literal and contextual meanings are always different and most of us don’t know that.
4) Use of content spinners. If you are a good writer, you can easily catch a spun article.
5) Inability to understand what is required in an article.
Content Writing Services Pricing is Flawed
Still 0.5 PKR/word is far less than being acceptable as writers, no matter how efficient and experienced they are, they have to invest a huge chunk of their time and efforts in producing quality content. I actually don’t understand this per word concept. If it’s about the word than who’d pay for your creative skills, research skills and other variable factors. The problem with content writing services is everyone is a writer today. Even a person who doesn’t know the basics of writing thinks he can write and provide article writing services. Content writing needs proper training, skills and experience. Due to these so called writers, the real ones are under paid. There is an absolute disregard for the time and effort that is invested in writing quality seo content writing. When writers will say NO to low rates, no one would be able to exploit them. As writers, we should not only value our words, but our precious time too.
How You Sell Yourself as Online Website Content Writer
Article writing services in Pakistan is an under paid job in Pakistan, yet we can’t do anything. Unfair employers will keep exploiting the newbies but it depends on a person to grow and make him/herself worthy of better opportunities. Indeed! It’s 2020 and employers still want writers to work at the rates of 2016. If a content writing agency gives 0.15 rppw and demand a highly quality searched content. They under value your words. Let alone, who will do proof reading for them at this rate? If you are offering seo content writing services make sure you help them grow their business by getting them traffic.
