In one of my earlier posts, I discussed ghostwriting for freelance writers. The article by Yvonne Perry highlights the pros and cons of this type of writing. I’ve been a professional freelance writer for over six years and have ghostwritten articles, blog posts, e-books, reports, and more for a variety of clients. I enjoy writing and helping others with their business needs is one of my passions. If you’re a business owner, have you considered hiring a professional writer?
There are many advantages to hiring a web content writer or article writer. If you hate to write or can’t find the time to update your blog, hiring a writer will save you time and aggravation. You’ll receive quality articles on a regular basis, which boosts your online presence and credibility.
Many writers, myself included, offer different services, such as web content, directory articles, blog posts, press releases, Squidoo lenses, e-books and reports, and more. Before you hire a freelancer, read their work, look at testimonials, and schedule a consultation. During the consult, your writer should be able to suggest the most effective services or packages for your business needs.
Another writing service is PLR, or private label rights. This can be a confusing topic, with questions about how to use it and why you might need it. PLR content can include articles, e-books, reports, autoresponder emails,and sales copy. Sometimes, it includes graphics, but most times, you’ll need to find photos yourself.
The main advantage is having quality content at your fingertips. You can update your blog, post to directories, or contact your list. Be sure to read what “rights” you have, which can include being able to use the material as your own, being able to edit, being able to resell the information, or giving away the information (with credit to the author or being able to rebrand it as your own work).
It’s also inexpensive with typical fees being $1 per article. Why so cheap? PLR content is written once and sold to multiple buyers. Most reputable sellers limit the number of buyers, so the content isn’t flooding the internet. It’s still recommended you do a bit of tweaking: change the titles to include your particular keywords, rearrange wording, and add your own links.
If you’ve been online for any length of time, you’ve heard the mantra of content being king. This is true, as is being consistent. You need quality writing to attract visitors, and you need to update regularly to keep them coming back.
If you’re busy or hate writing, hiring a freelance writer for customized articles or PLR is a smart decision.
