Martin. There is a list of Content Mills available (a Google search will reveal some lists). The problem is that these sites are often pro-content mills. Warning other businesses to use them is also tough. Some small businesses might hire expensive agencies to complete the work but I know that some agencies use content mills to complete client work."
Martin: If you ever think about hiring an agency about your content, then always ensure you: 1. Speak to the person doing the writing. In my opinion, for the best results you want a specified writer assigned to you. This keep content consistent and builds a stronger relationship between you and them. It also helps with the art of mimicing your brand's voice. 2. That you know where that writer is based and you can speak to them at any time (within reason i.e. working hours of course) via phone (or Skype). If you can't do this, then question why. 3. Ask the agency about turnaround times on amendments. For changes, I would expect 48 hours. With agencies using content mills, sometimes you might find 4 or 5 days (or longer). Depends on the content mill process. 4. Ask about lead times. A proper writing company will give you at least a week or two to read your content. But some agencies using content mills or some content mills, will only give you two days (regardless of whether it is a weekend or not.) Hope that helps."
Thanks Sam for these tips. Some really good tips to implement. I love number three the most. I was wondering how much value you put into link building with HARO. Through our own experiences this can be great. In the past two weeks, this strategy has gained six inbound links, for little work. At the same time, we have seen a rise in page rank for certain keywords. One keyword went from a disappointed page ten to 3-4 on page one."
