How To Select a Freelance Writer For Article Marketing

Aug 17, 2007
Quite definitely, article marketing is the most viable tool available for promotion of websites. Writing a good article and keeping it in open directories for visitors to read, and providing a back link to the product website at the bottom is quite certainly the best way to attract a good deal of traffic to the site.

It seems to be a foolproof trick. But, what about the articles themselves? Shouldn't they be extremely good if one is to attract people on the website through those articles?

Let's face it, not everyone has literary talent. People who own websites and sell products on them could have supreme entrepreneurial talents; but when it comes to writing an article, most of them would assuredly draw a blank. This is why freelance writers are much in demand today. The services of freelance writers are very increasingly used by website owners from all across the world.

Freelance writers take up these projects, and write articles according to given stipulations and search engine optimization requirements, and hand over the articles to the website owner. The freelance writer gets the payment to the articles and relinquishes all its rights to the owner to use them as they want.

Freelance writers are available quite abundantly today. These are generally people with good stable day jobs, who are writing articles only in their free times. Some good places where you can get freelance writers are Scriptlance, Freelance Work Exhange, eLance, Guru, etc. Even job portals like Monster.com sometimes have good offers of people on the lookout for writers.

If you are thinking of a freelance writer for your article marketing, then you have to be very cautious in the selection. There are no contracts drawn in most of the cases, but once you get your work started with one writer, it is quite cumbersome to switch over.

The following things can help you decide which freelance writer to choose:-
(i) Do they have any previous experience?
(ii) Do they have good ratings on the site? Read some reviews if they have.
(iii) Are they willing to submit samples of their work? How many?
(iv) Are they willing to provide links of the works they have done?
(v) What kind of English do they speak?
(vi) Are they available for communication?
(vii) Will they be prompt in delivering your project in completed form?
(viii) Does their price suit your budget?

You will have to remember that the better the freelance writer, the pricier they can become. But this should not be the only point influencing your decision. Make a proper level-headed decision when trying to select a freelance writer for your article marketing strategy.
