5 Tips For New Clients

Getting professional content doesn’t have to give you that same feeling you get when you know you have to go to the dentist to get a cavity filled.  We spend a great deal of time trying to figure out ways to make getting excellent content, as painless and easy as possible.  We try hard to offer you one of the simplest ways of getting high quality writing at a sensible price.  Like every system, it works best if you know a few of the secrets the more experienced users on our site know already.

Tip 1: Explain what you need very clearly

When you are working with a writer who knows your needs inside out (more on that later) then you can use short cuts.  But giving a few vague instructions and hoping that a writer will somehow just understand what you want, is not the way to get great work.  Spend a few extra minutes filling out the special instructions box while posting your project to communicate clearly what you are looking for.

Tip 2: Pay a sensible rate for the job

If you want a thousand words written cheaply, then HireWriters can do that for you.  Chances are you’ll get a good content, even from a beginner.  But, if you want something really first rate then choose a higher ranked writer.  It will cost you a little more, but you will be more than happy with the work you receive.  It may surprise you to know that the majority of jobs posted on HireWriters are at the “Expert” level!

Tip 3: Give fair rankings and feedback about writers

Remember that when you rank a writer, you are working on behalf of the community of employers.  If you receive work, which is just OK, don’t give a five star ranking just to be nice.  It’s important that the ranking you give truly reflects the work you receive, so that other employers can select the best writers for the future.  Writers value constructive comments very much, so try to put something helpful in the comments section, even if it’s just “Thanks!”

Tip 4: Ask for revisions – don’t be shy!

If a writer has done a job, which is almost, but not quite right, try giving them the benefit of the doubt and let them have a chance to make revisions to it.  Explain what you need, so that the writer can make changes.  For example, you might say, “Could you emphasize the role of exercise in recovery from an accident a little more?”  Writers are generally more than happy to make changes for you, so don’t be shy about asking; they are used to it!  In the end, you get a great piece of work, which is spot on, and the writer learns from what they did wrong in the first place and everyone is happy.

Tip 5: Use the “Favorite Writers” function

This is probably the most important one.  When a writer does a good job for you, add them to your favorites list. Then, the next time you have a suitable job, you can offer it direct to them.  And the good news is, you can set your own price – high or low.  Favorite writers can be grouped together, so that you can easily find the right person for the right subject.  You can offer work to a group of writers, this is especially good if you have a number of jobs under the same theme, and want a variety of voices.

It might surprise people to know that a very high percentage of our work is directly commissioned in this way.  Once you establish a relationship with a great writer, the sky is the limit in terms of what you can achieve for your business.  We can help you assemble a writing team for virtually any topic you can imagine!
