I would hope that the quality would exceed that of the examples. What I saw was this..

The Example from the Home Page:

Drawn out, difficult and long sentences which do not break in the way that a professional would break them.


Getting into shape is something that is hard for everyone but sometimes it seems like women have a harder time with it. This is why there are tons of workout videos for women available on the market. It can be difficult to decide which one is best for you out of the thousands that are available but this article should help make things a bit easier for you.


Look for one that has great music. Of course the workout is more important than what is going on in the background but there have been numerous research studies that prove that the music means a lot. People will do more exercise if they are moving to music that they actually enjoy. They tend to get so caught up in the lyrics and music that they forget they are actually doing something healthy. Do not worry about it;there are videos available for women that like all different genres.

Could this BE any more padded..  If the word actually appeared one more time in this item it would ACTUALLY be annoying. Don't worry about... WHAT?   No one mentioned any worries.  Secondary to this. the article changes person repeatedly, moving from YOU to they, etc.  It doesn't stick with one view point.

Here is a revision which I did myself , sentences are shorter, punchier and easier to read and costing you about half the price of the first one.

Getting into shape can be difficult. In many cases it is harder for women. That explains the many  workout videos geared specifically toward women. Choosing the right video from among those available isn't easy. The information below can help you to make the right choice.


Consider the music on the video. The workout is the most important part, but according to studies, the music will help you to stick to the workout. People will more readily take part in exercise if they enjoy the music. The right music  may even make you forget that you are exercising.

Not only are the sentences more professional, I've removed the several typos which were present and also as you see, you're getting a lot of words in the example item given, that say nothing  and don't add to the informational value. I'd have to say that while the price is cheaper, there isn't a lot of substance to the example items. They are what I'd call a good bit of fluff..  done to pad the word count so that we pay more and get less. I mean no disrespect, but honestly, the example items scared me to death.

Have you received any articles from the writers or are your comments based strictly on the example documents?  I know you are talking about the example articles but it is unclear to me whether you have received an article back from them that had the same problems you highlighted in the test articles.

The site and example articles were put in place in a hurry so they may have been too rushed to get something up.  I agree that you should always make your example articles a showcase of your work.  You should never have typo's, which tells me everything was rushed to get it online.

I haven't read the example articles as my decisions will not be made on them.  I have ordered a test article and I will decide on future articles based on the article I receive.  Since I have not received it yet I cannot comment on actual quality.

Andrew and some others whom I respect have given good reviews on the articles they have received from the service so my hopes for it are high.

LadyMacbeth, you must be a writer. I can tell by your username and the fact that you don't think that article is far more than adequate for $3.50. ;)

Hi, Lady, from your editing the article, I too know that too you must be a writer... However, like myself, I am hard pressed to believe that you would write for 3.00/3.50.

Therefore, I will defer making a comment~

Personally, I think that the program Jon has set forth to forum members that cannot afford people like us (and is giving jobs to people who need them in this economy) is wonderful.

This is content writing created for people needing content for their sites. These people often cannot afford to pay the perfect writer.

In addition, the writers who create this content are most likely as good as, we are... They just need a definite income to support their families, writers are a dime a dozen today and jobs scarce.

If they have a family to care for, more than likely writing for Jon is giving them a leg up when they need it!

You mean that the samples are less good than actual production?

From what I initially saw on launch day, yes Andrew. However, the actual article I received was top notch.

I can't see that kind of wage this would be very beneficial for the writers and it's my best guess that only someone who was very new to the game or very illiterate or had ESL writing skills would be willing to be paid this amount.

Again, Lady, this economy is rough, and I am of the opinion that Jon started this program not only to help his forum members needing content, but also to help someone to feed their families.

Jon does this on a regular basis. He puts people to work who actually need an income. I am relatively sure that most of the writers Jon has working on this program are highly competent writers who have families. Therefore, they need a definite income.

I would say that many if not all are as good as you or I are, the difference is that I have enough clientele to buy groceries, while many writers do not.

Last year Jon personally put over 100 people to work. This year it may be more, if this program continues.

I started my business writing for Jon’s program cash for links (C4L); therefore, I am well aware of his generosity.

Can you provide an email when details are setup....?

I would be interested in a sample run...providing several keyword niches...

Did not notice the average turn-around time estimates....???

Thanks

Personally, if I wanted a top notch article I would use these articles as 'starters'. No one can expect a world class piece for such a low price . This, to me anyhow, is a no brainer. You can always spend a few minutes fleshing out an article. The value as a 'starter' would be to get you thinking on a topic.

So for anyone who is complaining that these articles don't stand up to say, The New Yorker.. get over it! If you want that kind of article expect to pay HUNDREDS of dollars and not just what's on your nightstand.  8)

I'm late to the party but I would be interested in something like this if only it meets my expectations. Sound cheap....but lets see.

Well that's great. I come back to get a few articles ordered and you're already closed down. What a deal.

The site states "

We apologize, but due to our success we've had to close our doors to new clients temporarily. Once we can screen and hire additional writers we will open back up again. Thank you for your interest.  ". 

So just keep checking back and create an account this time when it opens back up again.  Once you have created an account you can then order articles whenever you need them.
