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.
Connect with the Top Social Media Writers
Finding top quality writers may seem like a daunting task. Where do you even begin to look?
At Scripted, we understand that your time is valuable. That is why we offer an extensive pool of the world's top content writers, including some of the best social media writers available. No need to search the web, wondering if you're heading in the right direction — we've completed that step for you.
Since we only accept 2 percent of our applicants, this means that the writers on our platform display excellent skills in grammar, creative thinking, and word choice. In addition, our writers are expected to meet tight deadlines, pitch creative proposals, and use client feedback to perfect ongoing content.

How to Hire a Social Media Writer
Once you become a Scripted member, the rest is history. You will gain instant access to the highest quality writers and based on varying options, you will be able to find the perfect candidate with ease. Over time, you will establish professional relationships that you can rely on when you need content. That's the power of expert freelance social media writers.
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. When it comes to social media, you may find one writer that consistently delivers when it comes to product descriptions, yet prefer another writer when developing content specifically for Instagram posts.
Regardless of your needs, take comfort in knowing that the hard work has been done for you. All you need to do is select the writer of your choice, hire them for the job, implement an ongoing marketing strategy, and watch your brand grow.

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

- 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)
- If you find writers you like, build working relationships with them instead of always hiring one-off writers
Although Scripted members will always find a writer that can fulfill their needs, being a great Scripted will attract proposals from our top social media writers and form a long-term relationship that will benefit you long after you hit publish.
