I’ve heard that I get content written for as little as $5. Would that be advised?

No. Here’s why: There’s a big difference between writing for the sake of producing something versus writing for the sake of attracting the best buying customers to your website. The objective of content marketing isn’t about volume, it’s about quality. It’s not about the writing, it’s about making sure that the messages connect with the audience in such a way that it develops a one-on-one rapport that translates into real-world interaction.
