Frequently Asked Questions About Hiring Content Writers
Hiring a content writer is one of the best things an organization can do. Content writers can provide the engaging, keyword-rich text for your site that interests existing customers, attracts new customers, saves you valuable time, and offers vital thought leadership elements.
If you go through the traditional hiring process when it comes to a content writer, a full-time, on-staff writer could cost around $50K a year. However, on-demand freelance writers could end up costing you a lot less; only employing writers when you need them and when it fits your budget can save you plenty of money.
The first option for hiring a content writer is to go the traditional route - put out a job request online, go through the candidates, find the right one and the right fit, and make an offer. The other way to find a writer? Go to a freelance writing service, see what they have to offer, and select the right one for your business.
It's not easy to find the right content writers for your service. Even if you take the plunge to hire a full-time content writer, they might not be the right person for your organization - and might not have the SEO skills needed. Be sure you go to a source that offers plenty of samples and profiles before you make your choice.
When you start looking for a content writer, there are several different things to look for. Your content writer needs to be communicative and responsive. They need to have excellent grammar skills, experience in your industry, and a sense of imagination and creativity. Most importantly, they need to know how to bring in those valuable SEO keywords that attract customers to your site.

"Mediocre content will hurt your brand more than doing nothing at all." — Joe Pulizzi, Content Marketing Institute
Research continues to show that content marketing is an incredible investment. While it costs 62 percent less than outbound marketing, content marketing generates over three times as many leads. Meaning, when done right, quality content will lead to growth.
According to IMPACT, the average company that blogs generates 55 percent more visitors to their website, gets 97 percent more inbound links, as well as 434 percent more indexed pages. More specifically, small businesses that blog get 126 percent more lead growth compared to those who do not blog.
There are hundreds of stats that support the effectiveness of content marketing and quality content. However, when it comes to content marketing, one thing is certain, quality writing is tough. In many cases, business owners aren't experienced writers themselves or they lack the expertise to create engaging content. In other cases, business owners are skilled writers, but they lack the time that's required to develop and create the type of content that truly delivers and converts.
When you hire and work with an experienced writer, you typically get the best of both worlds — a writer that's a subject matter expert, as well as someone who doubles as a marketing expert. Whether your goal is to boost your rank or improve your SEO strategy, a content writer can help you bridge the gap.
However, it's important to note that not all content writers are created equal — which is why you should source your content writers from a reliable source. This will ensure that your time and money are put to good use.
