Just doing some math, writers are probably making 1-2 cents/word. That's insulting and devalues the writing profession. I can't imagine the quality you'd get from this 199/mo service for 5k words. Or which labour pool you're taking advantage of...

Pros:

Cheap?

Cons:

Devalues the profession of writing, not sure what 1 cent/word writers gets you in terms of quality

Hey Jacklyn, thanks for sharing this note. Here's how I think about it. If I look at it objectively, I don't think we're devaluing the profession of writing. One of the early jobs in my professional career was of a copywriter and I know what it takes to be one - a decent one. A larger pool of our writers is based out of India. They are highly proficient in English language and grammar. Also, our moderators thoroughly vet every article that gets sent your way. P.S. I think it's a question of cost arbitrage without compromising on the quality. I know this is a kinda strange example but a loaf of fresh bread costs $2.5 in the USA. The similar, high-quality bread will cost $0.52 in India. Are we really devaluing the bread here? Nope! It's just that plain ol' market economics at play!

Writers aren't native speakers, so the quality isn't great (check the samples).

Pros:

Very cheap

Cons:

Indian content mill

BS. Let me tell you why. - You run a competing content service. - I don't think you have used our service. - Without even using the service, you generalised it as a content mill. Crux: You run a competing service + have never used Springzo... So, not sure how much of this review makes sense.

I love the idea, but the writing samples were disappointing. If anyone launches a more expensive service with better writers on the same model, let me know.

@joeadamg Sorry to hear the sample articles didn't meet your desired content quality. We will surely look at improving the same. In the meantime, do have a look at other content pieces we have published: https://zo.springzo.com/2odq2m5 P.S. If you ever change your mind and decide on giving Springzo a try, we would be happy to take it up as a challenge.
@joeadamg @shalinjain27 Furthermore, there are several grammatical errors on the homepage, which was enough to immediately deter me. If you guys don't have native English speakers to QA your own sales page, I suspect the quality of delivered work will be sub-par at best. :(

@joeadamg @taylor_banks Hey Taylor. Thanks for your feedback. We're continually striving to improve the quality of our content. For instance, we are experimenting with having a native English copy editor to vet all the articles before we send them to clients. Having said that, I'm pretty sure the quality of our content in its current form is surely way above par.
@joeadamg We have a similar model, but with professional American native speakers: http://contentfly.co Feel free to check out our samples - they speak for themselves: https://contentfly.co/blog/why-b... ;)
Congrats with the launch, but I don't get how much of content can the customer order (it says unlimited, but is it for real?)

@bitrewards Hi Alex. We assure to deliver a minimum of 4000-5000 words. Having said that, there have been instances where we have been able to write around 7000 words/month too. So, it depends on the type of content you order during the month. For instance, take these two articles: 1. Who Are We Fooling? Is One Day Really Enough To Save The Environment? 2. It Took Me 1 Hour to Explain Everything about Blockchain To My Grandma! Here's How I Did It! The second one involves a lot more research and the writer will need more time, and re-writes to satiate the intent behind the topic.

One of the best content writers out there in the market.

Pros:

Helped us to write our best performing content

Cons:

Nothing as of now
