Content Writers: Prices
Content marketing budgets come in all sizes, and content writers’ rates vary across providers. Our price will depend on the type of content you are ordering, and your topic area. It will also depend on whether you will be providing detailed briefs, or our content strategist will be creating a content calendar and researching topics for you.

Rates for article & blog writing

Marketing agencies needing content for multiple clients should contact us for a quote, or ask for our services and price guide for agencies.
Thought leadership & feature level articles
Informative articles educate your market and attract the interest of prospective clients hungry for information, but competitors are often writing about the same subjects. You have to work hard to stand out. A demonstration of thought leadership that peeks into the future, or provides an insightful analysis of a topic, can generate strong engagement. This type of content can travel far and wide online. So too, can a riveting story people relate to.
Many hours of work go into creating content at this level. The cost varies according to the article requirements. As a guide, allow $700+ for a 1500 word article, with the cost increasing along with length.
These types of articles often require one or more interviews with sources or topic experts. You may also want custom images or graphs created to illustrate the article, or for us to identify suitable sources/experts to interview. Where an on-site interview is required, travel time also needs to be considered.

EBooks and white papers

Original industry research
If you’d like to undertake your own industry research to generate data and unique perspectives for content creation, we have a research consultant on the team who can assist.
For corporate clients with a research budget in excess of $5000, the first step is a free telephone consultation with both our content strategist and our research consultant. The aim of the consultation is to learn about your goals, and determine suitable research methods. A written proposal and quote is then provided.
Packaged services provided on a month-to-month basis are also available. We don’t ask our clients to commit to annual contracts! Our packages are tailored to your requirements. Simply let us know what you need, and we’ll prepare a proposal for you.
For assistance with content planning or strategy, an introductory phone consultation with our strategist is free. And whether you spend $500 a month with us, or $5000, our strategist will help you to get the best possible results. Strategy services including strategy documentation and content audits are quoted on an individual basis. Contact us to discuss your requirements today!
