My startup is looking to establish an awesome blog but we are in need of an well priced full time content writers. I have interviewed plenty of people but they don’t seem to be solely content writing focused- where have others found really good content writers?
Sites like upwork and freelancer typically have low-cost options, but it will take some time to sort through all of the options. There's even craigslist - if you don't mind sorting through a lot of junk... Point is; if you don't know what you are looking for, finding the right freelancer can be a daunting task.
I personally work as a freelancer as the primary content writer for one brand, and the primary blogger for another. My clients located me through Freelancer.com and Upwork.com. Both clients spent a few weeks making sure I understood the brand before I began handling their content. This is a step I recommend any business take before hiring a content writer full time.
If you need any assistance finding the perfect freelance content writer for your venture, please reach out to me. I provide virtual recruiting services for those seeking American online freelancers and would love to help.
We have had good success using Writers Access and they have writers who have all different sets of expertise. Here is my contact over there (Kelly Molewski - firstname.lastname@example.org - 617-227-8800 x209). Hope this helps!
