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.

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
