Frequently Asked Questions About Hiring Writers

The time savings and reduced costs associated with hiring a freelance writer are definitely among the top benefits. A professional freelance writer will be able to take over any project you're working on, ultimately completing it in less time than an inexperienced writer and to a higher standard. Meanwhile, their expertise means they know exactly what to ask, streamlining communications and further reducing your time commitment.

The cost of a freelance writer can vary widely depending on their experience, niche specialties, and education. Most charge per word, with $0.10 to $0.15 being a fairly typical range. However, absolute beginner writers may start out charging just pennies per word while highly experienced writers who specialize in a certain industry or style (such as sales copy writers) can justify $1 per word or even more.

The whole idea behind outsourcing is to save yourself time, but it's well worth investing some of your time into the research and vetting process if you're hiring a freelance writer for the first time. Alternatively, you can save yourself that legwork by going through a content production company like Scripted that has already tested and pre-vetted writers for you. Still, you should always read proposals carefully, look at writers' profiles, and ask questions about relevant experience to determine who's the perfect fit.

Freelance writers can be found all over the web. Some have their own websites where you can work with them directly while most find clients through an open freelance service platform, such as Scripted. Others apply and get accepted into the closed platforms of content production companies where they may need an invitation or go through an interview process to qualify. Scripted is one example of a closed platform where writers must apply and be approved in order to gain access.

There are many traits to look for in a freelance writer, but perhaps the most important are research capabilities, responsiveness, communication skills, and an overall dedication to your niche and your project. Look for a writer that expresses interest, if not passion, in the topic at hand and ask questions to ascertain what exactly they think makes them the perfect fit. A great writer will be able to sell themselves and their skills based entirely on merit, without using ""discounts"" or other questionable tactics.
