Frequently Asked Questions About Hiring Blog Writers
Online marketing is essential for small businesses these days - but running a blog is a lot of work. You need to keep it constantly updated with new content in order to grow awareness around your brand and keep your audience interested. Hiring a blog writer is the best way to create marketing copy that combines the talent of engaging storytelling with the art of selling and SEO. Depending on your needs, you can find blog writers to produce as much top-level, expert content as you need.
When it comes to hiring a blog writer, follow the old adage: you get what you pay for. Hiring writers on the cheap will save you money, but you risk ending up with bad content, missed deadlines, and wasted time. Paying a lot of money, on the other hand, doesn't guarantee the best content and can leave you with little money left in the budget for other marketing needs. It's best to figure out what the going rates are for blog writers and be willing to pay more for top-quality content.
According to Sprout Social, you can find a writer in the $25 to $150 range for one short- to medium-length article. It's fair to assume that more inexperienced writers charge on the low end of the scale while blog writers who are adept at research, offer subject matter expertise, SEO, and other skills will be at the upper range or higher.
Think of your content needs the same way you would a job posting. Consider the following:
- How much content will you need? 2-3 blog posts per week? One blog post per month?
- Does your writer need to be a subject matter expert?
- What kind of tone/voice are you looking for?
- What format do you need? (How-To Guide, Social Media Posts, Informative articles, etc.)
Use one of these methods to find the best blog writers for your business:
- Independent Searches
- Many writers have their own ‘for hire’ websites online. Google ‘blog writer’ along with other search terms that relate to your business. This is a good way to find established writers who specialize in your industry. The downside is that it can be time-consuming to reach out to a handful of writers and wait to hear back about their rates, availability, etc.
Hiring a blog writer is all about finding a candidate who is a good match for your brand. These are the things you should look for in your initial search:
- Grasp of technical writing skills.
- Tone/voice that matches your brand.
- Star-ratings on content platforms.
- Ability to consistently meet deadlines.
- Schedule availability.
- Good relationships with current/past clients.
- Rates within your budget.
