Ending up receiving content that is not up to your level of expectation is a nightmare as you well aware of the extra work, effort and time you have to dedicate to get the job done right, specially if you have tight deadlines. This is why hiring a good freelance content writer in Sri Lanka for your content writing projects is a must.
Yet finding the right one among the content writers based in Sri Lanka can be an overwhelming and doubtful task.
To help you select a good content creator for your next task with much more confident, here I’ve put together few things you should keep in mind whenever you are hiring a freelance content writer in Sri Lanka.
One who specializes in something is better
You might think writing is the same whether it’s an advertisement or a web copy. It’s the same language and the same words.
But ‘No’. It’s different.
For an example, I’m good at writing blog posts and web content but writing ad copies is not my thing.
So, if you want content for your upcoming website, start looking for a content writer specializes in writing web content. If you want to produce content for a killer TV advertisement search for a ‘pro’ in writing content for advertisements.
Check previous work
When you are looking for a content writer in Sri Lanka, the best way to get a good idea about the writer you are going to work with is to look at his or her previous write-ups. So always make sure to check at least three or more writing samples before you hire a content writer.
Rates, terms and conditions
This is important.
Whenever you contact a content writer for the first time, don’t just ask him to send the details. Specifically, request him to send three or more writing samples, his rates and working terms and conditions. Also, learn about the ways of accepting payments and when you have to pay for the service specifically.
By having a good understanding about the way a particular freelance content writer works enables you to find the best freelance writer that matches your business standards.
To receive a good content that satisfies your requirements needs a good communication. So, it’s important to ask your freelance writer about their preferred way of communication before you start.
Some freelance content writers (like me) only offer email, phone and Skype communication, and for those who prefer to meet their writer in person, writers like us are not the best fit.
Cheap is always cheap
Don’t make price or rate the main factor when selecting a content writer, if you are really after quality. Because what is cheap in price is always cheap in quality.
If the writer lacks experience, punctuality and ability to follow the instructions properly, what you spend will be a total waste.
