For this Constant Content review, I ordered a blog post to see how the service works and how good the content actually is.
Unlike other SEO content writing services, Constant Content allows you to be quite picky in terms of your budget and which writer you choose to write your content. Clients have a lot of content options available.
So, was it worth it?
Read my full Constant Content review to see what I thought about this service and the quality of the content I received.
Overall Constant Content Review
I give Constant Content 3 stars out of 5.
Constant Content wouldn’t be my first choice for a blog writing service. The platform does give you a good level of flexibility. It caters to a range of different budget options, and you can be quite specific about which writer to work with and how to choose them. Signing up is also easy.
However, the content that I received could have definitely been better. Maybe I should have increased my budget or been more specific about which writer I used. I’m sure the overall quality of content writing through Constant Content varies quite a lot depending on the writer and budget.
Constant Content (3rd Party Reviews)
I didn’t really get anything out of Constant Content’s Trustpilot reviews. There are only two reviews listed, and neither of these are actually about Constant Content. They are fake reviews about ‘investing in a company’ (see here).
So at first glance, Constant Content has only excellent reviews on Trustpilot with a 4-star rating, but this can’t be trusted.
My Constant Content Experience
For this Constant Content review, I ordered a piece of blog content. I’ll take you through my entire experience, from the sign up to the actual quality of the content received.
Was it worth it?
Let’s find out.
When you order content from Constant Content, you’ve got two options. You can either get tailor-made content or ready-made content.
Tailor-made content is written specifically for you according to your brief. This is what I would expect from a content writing service.
The ready-made content option allows you to browse over 100K articles on any given topic, and buy one. While this has the advantage of allowing you to know exactly what you pay for, the idea just didn’t appeal to me. I’m interested in their custom content, written on demand.
Getting signed up for this is really simple.
You just fill out a quick form with your name, email address, password, and website (optional). They send you a confirmation email to click, and then you’re done. Easy.
When your account is activated, you can log into your profile where you have the option to order or buy content. All of the steps are laid out very clearly, and there is a helpful video to show you how to get started.
Signing up couldn't get any easier.
Most content writing services that we’ve reviewed, like ContentFly or Compose.ly, have very clear pricing structures based on the amount of content that you order. Not Constant Content. Their pricing is confusing.
They say that every piece of content written is unique, and so every writer has their own rate based on their level of skill and industry experience. This idea is fair, but the lack of consistency can be a challenge.
So, how is the content priced?
When you purchase content, you set a price range for your requests, and the available writers/content that matches your request show up. According to Constant Content, the average price for a catalogue article is $40, and the average price for custom content is $120.
In theory, the more you’re willing to pay, the better quality content you should receive.
Creating Your Order
I ordered a 1000 word piece of custom content. To do this, I logged into my profile and hit ‘order content’. Now, you've got a few different options for how you can get your brief out there.
The first option is to choose a specific writer via private request. I didn’t do this because I have never used any writers on this service before. So, I had four options:
- Call for article: All available writers are invited to submit your article
- Casting call: All available writers can apply to work for your project
- Targeted request: To request editor-approved writers that match specific criteria
- Expert request: To choose writers from a list of professionally certified groups
The motivation behind these different requests is to match you with the best writer for your needs. I get it, but it's a little confusing. Other content services, like Contentellect or Compose.ly, make it way easier to just submit a brief and have it picked up by the most relevant writer automatically.
Anyway, I chose ‘Call for Articles’ to test out their large pool of writers.
Then you choose your content type. There are many options available. I chose a blog post.
Then you add in your specific instructions. This includes adding the title, a description of what you want, and any other specific requests.
A feature that I really liked is that you can add in a deadline. Most other content services that I’ve reviewed don’t have this option. To give the writers enough time, I gave them 5 business days.
Finally, it's time to set a budget and word count.
I ordered one piece of content at 1000 words, and I chose the middle pricing option ($50 - $100). From my experience with previous platforms, $100 for a 1000 word blog post should offer good quality writing.
Before you can go any further, you need to make sure that your account is credited with enough cash for your request. Because my price range was up to $100, I needed at least $100 worth of credit before I could continue.
Then your content is ready to be ordered.
My deadline was for 5 days, and I received my first submission after 3. This was a good sign.
Instead of waiting for other submissions, I decided to choose this one to review. Most other content writing services only send you one option, so I thought I’d follow a similar approach with this Constant Content review
Now for the important part, the quality of the content.
I ordered a 1000 word blog post.
Would I Publish This Article?
In short, no.
The article I received was just average. It didn’t match the regular tone of my blog (which I had referred to in my brief), and the whole article just felt rushed. This is probably because I had requested all writers to submit their work to me, and I quickly chose the first one. If I had waited for more requests, I probably could have received something better.
Look, the actual writing wasn’t that bad. The article made sense, it was factually correct, and it was easy enough to read. However, the topic wasn’t explained very well. I don’t think the writer was particularly experienced on the topic (which is not a good sign).
What Errors Did I Find?
As I said, there were no major errors. Apart from a single error that Grammarly picked up, nothing big stood out. The writer included a statistic which they referenced correctly, and they did provide everything I had asked for in the brief.
Technically, everything was there, but the whole blog post just felt flat. It wasn’t particularly interesting or insightful to read.
I didn’t require any specific customer service, so I can’t really comment.
Constant Content does have a messaging tool built into the platform, and you can communicate with the writer. So I guess they are pretty transparent and easy to communicate with.
Constant Content FAQs
How much did my blog post cost?
The price range was set between $50 to $100 - a pretty big gap. So, how much did my blog post actually cost in the end? I ended up paying $70 for the article.
Was the blog post SEO-friendly?
No, there were no keywords or SEO practices applied. However, you can request specific SEO content which I did not do.
