The Importance of Hiring Travel Writers

The travel sector is one of the largest service industries in the world. From bucket list destinations to emerging trends and business to business features, travel is a broad topic that requires specialist writers. It is important to hire an experienced travel writer when you need quality content for your travel site.

Why Hire a Travel Writer

Travel writers have a broad knowledge of the industry but most also specialize in niche areas. This varies from food travel writers to sustainable traveling and those who are experts on regions and countries. This means that when you hire a travel writer from a company like Scripted there are several to choose from, each with their own specialties and destination expertise. This works well for sites that cover many locations or many aspects of travel, compared to a single in-house writer.

So if you want an article on the art of Japanese green tea production or the lowdown on new restaurants in New Orleans, you are likely to find a writer with the expertise to write a compelling article here on Scripted.

Benefits of Hiring Freelance Travel Writers

Freelance travel writers have a range of skills that they bring to an assignment. They don't simply turn around standard articles on common destinations but have insight into what makes a place special. Armed with the knowledge that a lot of people who read travel features are locals or returning visitors, a travel writer will look to include something unusual or new.

Travel writers must also have expert knowledge of SEO to ensure the visibility of your content on search engines. Proper SEO earns you higher rankings, which in-turn convert to more business. Travel writers also have an eye on new trends and emerging developments. They attend industry conventions and have extensive networks. They can advise on up and coming areas and highlight trends that appeal to a variety of audiences.

Tapping into the expertise of an experienced travel writer means you will have an on trend piece of work that captivates an audience.

Frequently Asked Questions About Hiring Writers

Travel writers can provide a range of services, so it’s difficult to say how much they cost. If you want someone to perform online research and write an article for your website, then you can expect to pay about 10 cents per word. If you want the travel writer to visit a destination, then you may need to pay for the cost of travel, meals, hotels, and other expenses.

You can find travel writers in several ways. Most website developers prefer finding travel writers through online communities. Several platforms vet writers before letting them advertise their profiles. By using one of these platforms, you know that you have access to writers with excellent grammar, word choice, and research skills. Profiles should let you read writing samples and client reviews to help you choose a writer who fits your unique needs.

You want to hire a travel writer with excellent research skills and the ability to connect with your target audience. The best writers know how to adjust their voices depending on their audience. Writing for a crowd of young, adventurous travelers requires a different voice than writing for retirees who want to find places to relax. As long as you find a knowledgeable, flexible travel writer, you should find that you get the content you need.

Travel writers can produce a variety of content, including social media posts, landing pages, blog posts, and reviews. Some writers prefer to focus on certain areas of travel writing, so make sure you hire someone with experience in the type of content you need. A person who knows how to write evocative travel guides may not develop the best social media content. It often makes sense to have a team of writers to create more types of content.

Travel writers can benefit your company by creating content that engages and motivates your audience. Today’s writers know that they need to use SEO strategies to improve website rankings. As your website’s ranking improves, you should get more traffic. Readers are also more likely to share engaging content, so your site can get more traffic from social media posts. With more traffic, your website can expect to convert more clients and earn more money from ads.

Tasmania can be said to embody the most famous Australian traits: wild, unspoilt and indulgent.

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

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.
