first and foremost, you need to chalk out details of the required content. For example; what market (US, Europe, Asia etc?) are you going to target with your content? Search engine optimized content? Targeting affiliate marketing or anything else for that matter..
Top of the line content writers do charge somewhere around $#*$! per few hundred words, whereas anything less then that (as mentioned by someone earlier) would most definitely be picked up from other sites and rewritten in different words and of course will degrade quality.
