Frequently Asked Questions About Hiring Writers

The sports and fitness category can cover a lot of categories, so you can expect writers to charge a range of prices. Fitness instructors, for example, might agree to write an article for 5 or 6 cents per word as long as they get to promote their services. Someone covering sports events, though, may need 10 cents or more per word because games can last several hours.

Start by finding an online community that vets its writers. Many platforms will only let freelance sports and fitness writers promote their profiles after they have demonstrated strong skills in grammar, vocabulary, and word choice. Most profiles will let you learn more about sports and fitness writers by reading samples, client reviews, and author biographies. You may want to ask several writers to submit drafts so you can choose a small team of experts you love.

When hiring a sports and fitness writer, you want to look for extensive knowledge in the subject and strong writing that engages your audience. Many website owners want to choose fitness writers who have certifications to work as trainers. Getting certified shows that the writer understands a range of fitness topics. With sports, you should look for a writer who knows about the players, historic games, and statistics of the sports that interest your audience.

Many sports and fitness writers are happy to develop the type of content that your company needs to thrive. For example, you may discover that someone who writes excellent feature articles can also create social media posts that get a lot of attention from fans. Some writers prefer to focus on specific types of content, though, so you should make sure you choose a flexible person who can help in several areas.

Today’s sports and fitness writers understand the importance of using SEO strategies to boost your website visibility. Over time, they can help your website get a higher search engine ranking. As your site becomes more visible, you should attract more visitors. Writers who create engaging content can also help your business grow through newsletters, social media posts, and other content. As more people come to your site, you benefit from increased conversions and ad revenue.

Scripted has been a tremendous partner and value add for our business in helping us craft insider descriptions of cities and neighborhoods.

John Kobs
CEO, Apartmentlist.com and Autolist.com

Scripted has been a wonderful resource for original content across many topics. They are effective at pitching new ideas or taking raw thoughts and building them into well crafted masterpieces of content.

Koka Sexton
Global Senior Manager of Social Marketing, LinkedIn

Our acute need was for a dramatic quantity of high-quality content, written for a sophisticated medical audience, yet simultaneously consumer-friendly. That's not an easy task. We were lucky to have been matched with Scripted, whose adherence to quality exactly matched our needs.

Jerry Gulley
VP of Content Services, Healthine.com

We would've had to hire about five full-time writers to get the amount of content that we're currently getting from our partnership with Scripted," said Kelly. "It just makes total sense.

Brian Kelly
CMO, InsideView

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 adidas blog has seen growth month over month. We get some great comments on social as well.

Katie Burt
Social Media Manager at Adidas Digital Sports

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.

Senior Marketing Communications Manager, Cambro
