Frequently Asked Questions About Hiring Social Media Writers

Online marketing is essential for small businesses these days - but running social media accounts is a lot of work. You need to keep a number of platforms constantly updated with new content to build trust with your audience and grow awareness of your brand. Hiring a social media writer is the best way to create online content that combines the talent of engaging storytelling with the art of selling and SEO.

When it comes to hiring a social media writer, rates can vary quite a bit. According to Sprout Social, you can find a writer in the $25 to $150 range for one short- to medium-length article. The lower end of the scale would be for articles where little to no research is necessary, while blog writers who can research, offer subject matter expertise, SEO, and other skills will be at the upper range or higher.

Hiring a social media writer starts with ironing out the details of your job posting. Know what you want before you start looking. Consider the following:

  • How much content will you need? 2-3 Facebook posts per week? One LinkedIn article per month? Instagram posts every day?
  • Would you like one writer to manage all your content needs? Or would you prefer a few different writers?
  • How much research will your social media posts require? Does your writer need to be a subject matter expert?
  • What kind of tone/voice are you looking for?
  • Get a clear sense of what you are looking for so you have a better chance of finding a social media writer who is right for you.

One way to find social media writers is to ask people in your network for recommendations and referrals. You can also find writers online by conducting independent searches for social media writers for hire. This gives you access to writers who work independently and can provide their rates, availability, etc. Content writing platforms are another helpful way to find social media writers. They offer a pool of high-quality, pre-vetted writers across a variety of industries and help you find a good match.

When searching for a social media writer, you want to make sure you find someone who has great technical expertise as well as a tone/voice that matches with your brand. Look at a candidate’s writing samples to get a sense of how they communicate. Do you get the sense they will resonate with your audience and be able to match the style of your existing content? Do they have experience writing in your industry? Do they have consistently good reviews and star-ratings from past clients? These questions will help you narrow down your search.

During the hiring process, you can choose from the following options:

  • Begin browsing all writers based on their expertise, viewing their profiles and available writing samples
  • When you find writers who impress you, feel free to directly assign them work
  • One of the most popular methods is to invite writers to "pitch" to your job
  • Based on the proposals you receive, select the writer(s) you'd like to work with

This level of flexibility means that you can work with the same writers time and time again — or hire new writers for each project, diversifying your online presence.

Encourage the Best Social Media Writers to Work with You

Scripted is so successful because writers and clients are both valued, as each partnership requires one another. That is why at Scripted, we ensure that our writers are just as happy as our clients. To do so, we provide clients with the tools they need to ensure excellent communication — the type of communication that encourages long-term partnerships.

To become a member that writers want to work with, remain mindful of the following:

  • Leave positive reviews when writers do a great job — they also have the opportunity to leave you a review based on their experience
  • Although the Scripted platform can finalize work automatically for you, it's best if you address and finalize projects quickly
  • If a writer goes above and beyond, you have the option to tip them
  • When creating a job, ensure that the writer has all of the information they need (both in terms of writing a proposal and for the job itself)

As an agency, we manage our own blog plus several client blogs. That means we always have a lot of posts in the works. Scripted helps us to make sure we deliver quality writing on time.

We've been using Scripted for about eight months. The implementation of the agency dashboard lets us organize and manage projects by client, which is a huge help when you're dealing with a large volume of posts for a wide variety of clients. We can also restrict access to just the people who need access to each project. This helps keep inboxes less cluttered and more focused on what's important. The agency dashboard also allows us to favorite writers whose voice matches a particular client's brand, a big help when identifying the right writer for the job.

In the past, we produced content either in-house or with freelance writers. Scripted has been much more reliable, and the writing quality on Scripted has been consistently strong.

Marketing Manager, Whittington Consulting

Using Scripted allows us to increase the frequency of our posts, and it's also a great forcing mechanism to plan in advance and pull together the topics and assignments for the upcoming month as well. It's a good forcing function as well just to make sure we're looking in advance at upcoming holidays or upcoming change.

I was particularly overwhelmed with a lot of work here at Eventbrite, so I didn't have a ton of time. It took very little effort on my end to work with Scripted and their account management service. My account manager Tasia Potasinski made it really easy and straightforward for me -- using Scripted definitely saved me time and energy.

After receiving the final drafts, I didn't have to do much editing. It took me no more than 10 or 15 minutes of reading through the white papers to just make sure everything was accurate. I think the quality of the content was strong and I felt like each writer did a fair amount of additional research. They really took the time to understand the topic and the context within the topic.

Megan Buell
Content & Inbound Marketing Manager, Eventbrite

Prior to using Scripted we relied heavily on in-house marketing teams to create content. We're into our second year working with Scripted, and over those two years we've increased our content capabilities greatly - easily doubled the content and ideas in the last year.

We use Scripted as an extension of our team and use the various services Scripted provides to supplement our research. Just getting a different perspective on an issue can help jumpstart an idea.The biggest benefit of Scripted is having access to a whole group of writers who offer a different perspective that makes our topics and ideas much greater in writing.
