4 Reasons to Hire a Freelance Writer

Writing

Freelance writers are the answer to the question, How am I going to find the time to do this, too?
Maybe you can write the copy, you can proofread, and you can do layout without any outside help.

But do you have the time? Can you do everything quickly and well?
A freelance writer can step in and take at least one thing off of your To Do list.

The advantages:
1. Don’t worry about benefits, vacation time, taxes, etc.

Freelance writers take care of their own taxes, vacations, and insurance needs. You only pay for the service you need.

2. Hire a writer as-needed, rather than pay for down time.

When you have employees, you have to pay them even when they talk to their co-workers, surf the internet, take bathroom breaks, or just dawdle. Freelancers are paid only for the time-on-task.

3. Freelance writers are customer oriented.

Employees are not necessarily loyal to the employer, but you can bet business owners are loyal to their own businesses. As business owners, freelancers have a strong desire to do their best work for their clients. Happy customers are essential to a prosperous business.

4. Freelancers are committed to your project.

Freelancers are able to accept assignments they want to do. There’s no boss telling them they must do a particular project. That means your job is important to the  freelance writer, hand-picked, rather than just another assignment from an employer.

A freelance writer’s job is caring about your business as much as her own.

The question is, why wouldn’t you hire a freelancer?

If you need a freelance writer to help with web content, articles, blog writing, proofeading, or more, hire me!

    This is my first experience with your blog and I am enjoying it!

    Thank you for such a lovely post today. I can’t wait to delve further in the archives and see what other gems I discover.

  2. Well the main reason for me is that:
    1) I cant write 2) I cant spell

  3. All good points for hiring freelancers. I think the pros far outweigh the cons. companies just need to know where to look; that’s where the freelancer needs to make sure their name is out there.

  4. I agree with all that you say about hiring freelancers. In our business we’ve hired quite a few of them. The majority of our problems arise from poor grammar. We hire after receiving samples that are perfect and work done by someone else, it’s pretty clear.

    I have used writers on many occassions and always been delighted with the work. I think they do a better job of researching the topic and indeed constructing the actually content than i ever could. The other huge factor is time, i dont have the time to write, instead i use may time doing things i am better at and leave the writing to the pros.

  8. You’re right Theda!

    If you don’t know how to write or you don’t have the necessary tools hiring a freelance writer is THE solution.

    The thing to consider before hiring one is the ratio between budget & expected ROI. You can spend $200 if you know the way you’ll use the articles will make you more than those invested $200.

    You just need to check a few things before sending the full payment such as:
    - you writer has to be (preferably) a person with English as mother tongue
    - the content must pass CopyScape
