But the downside is that creating great, valuable, and shareable content takes a lot of time. Each blog post could take an hour or more — or even several hours if it’s a particularly “epic” post. The services listed here are your best bets for outsourced writing and content creation. Naturally, the quality and prices vary widely so be sure to shop around to find the best fit for your needs.
