As a small business owner, you have a lot on your plate. You wear dozens of hats, and managing your website can seem like too much to take on, especially if it’s not your specialty. Hiring someone to create your content can help you keep ahead of posting goals and get you the type of writing that engages your audience.
A good writer can help you brainstorm topics and deliver quality content on deadline with few spelling and grammatical errors. Before you hire a writer, you should know what you want, ask about the writer’s experience including his or her SEO work, and ask for a sample post. Some writers will be happy to provide you with a short post based on your specifications for a minimal fee.
Standard practice is to pay half the contract up front and half on completion. Professional rates are six cents a word or more depending on the amount of research and time required for the type of post you want.
Why Am I Giving This Away?
There are several reasons for me to give you this information. Obviously, I hope that you will choose me for your content creation needs. However, I can’t accept every job. I’m just one person. I can only type so many blog posts a week, and I am not well-versed in every industry. Still, I want you to be able to reach your potential clients without having to rely on questionable SEO services and tactics. Now that you have the information, you can format your content to better harness the power of search engines. Just remember to keep up with search engine changes and adapt your content to them.
For businesses in Independence, Salem, and Dallas, Oregon, I want you to succeed because your success will indirectly lead to a better life-quality for me. A rising tide lifts all boats, and I’m in the same harbor as you are.
Who Am I?
Normally, people put this paragraph first to build trust and credibility. I always disliked that because if I’ve clicked on the link, I’ve already decided that the person probably has something to say and is qualified to say it – or at least, I’ll be able to discern if the person is qualified by reading the content. So, I generally scroll through the introduction. However, I also understand that it’s important to know where your information is coming from.
I am a writer with over 8 years of experience in SEO writing, research, and journalism. I have a Master’s in Creativity and Innovation with an emphasis in Entrepreneurship and have published 11 books in the last three years.
