Frequently Asked Questions About Hiring Writers

IT and security writers usually charge between $20 and $40 per hour. Most freelance writers, however, charge by the word. Expect to pay 10 to 20 cents for expert advice from an IT and security writer. The per-word cost helps cover research and proofreading as well as writing. Spending less than 10 cents per word could mean that you don’t get the content that appeals to a technical audience.

Content creation services make it easy to find reliable IT and security writers. The best platforms vet every writer before letting them create profiles. That usually means the writers must pass tests and provide a portfolio of published work. Once you join the platform, you can browse profiles to read client reviews, writing samples, and author biographies to see which ones stand out to you.

Look for an IT and security writer that has some technical experience. Your writer may not have a professional degree, but they should have a deep understanding of how households and companies can optimize their IT performance and security. You should also look for someone with a professional record of turning projects in on time and following guidelines. You don’t want to hire someone who will fall through at the last moment.

You probably don’t need an IT and security writer with a college degree. You may want to ask writers about their certifications, though. In today’s tech world, many professionals focus on earning certificates that show they have mastered specific skills. They don’t always go to four-year colleges because the programs cost a lot and include knowledge they don’t need to join the workforce.

The answer to that question depends on why you want to hire an IT and security writer. If you own a company that addresses IT and security issues, hiring a knowledgeable, persuasive writer could help you find more clients. If you have a blog about common IT and security issues, bringing a great writer on board can improve your revenues from ads and affiliate links.

The Importance of Hiring IT & Security Writers

Ongoing growth in IT & security makes it crucial for your organization to give readers accurate, insightful information about the topics that matter to them. Generic writing will only reach a limited number of readers. You need content created by professional writers who know how to grow your brand’s authority and make your website a destination for people seeking reliable information.

Why Hire an IT & Security Writer?

Not every writer has the right background to cover IT & security topics. You need a writer with experience in areas like:

  • Data breaches

  • Cloud technology

  • VPNs

  • Peer-to-peer encryption

  • Malware trends

  • Troubleshooting networks

  • Data management

  • APIs

  • SaaS

  • Software development

Some IT & security writers have worked in information technology, so they can bring real-life knowledge to your blog, social media posts, email newsletters, and landing pages. Other writers have a deep interest in technology, so they read authoritative publications to keep up with the latest trends and threats. Either way, you get passionate writing from a freelancer who enjoys learning about IT & security.

The Benefits of Hiring an IT & Security Freelance Writer

Hiring an IT & security freelance writer means that you can choose the most qualified person for individual projects. If you hire a staff writer, then you’re stuck with that person’s limited set of skills.

Other benefits of hiring an IT & security freelance writer include:

  • Avoiding the time and expense of onboarding a new employee.

  • Paying for the content you need instead of committing to a full-time employee’s payroll.

  • Flexibility from remote workers committed to completing projects on time.

In the long run, hiring a freelance writer helps guarantee the quality of your content while letting you avoid the expense of office space, equipment, and benefits that full-time employees expect.

We've been working with Scripted on about four blogs per month for the past 12 months. As the writers and Scripted have become familiar with the brand and the way we work, they have been a great partner and delivered fantastic content which we publish monthly on our platforms.

One of the most beneficial parts of the platform is how the content reviewing system works. We love the ways in which writers of different levels can be selected and the excellent customer support Scripted offers. We hope to continue this relationship well into the year.

The biggest benefits of moving to Scripted have been improvements in the quality of writing, access to subject matter experts, and the ability to quickly complete large volumes of writing simultaneously.

Kathleen Booth
CEO, Quintain Marketing

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.

Chenery
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 think the quality is excellent. I was incredibly impressed. I thought that the writers found the fun voice, and I think there was a consistency across all the blog posts.

Diana Adair
Director of Communications, Zazzle

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.
