Running a successful blog is no easy task. Just the thought of being responsible for creating original and quality content on a daily basis can be quite stressful. For times like these, many bloggers are looking to hire new content writers for their blogs. Not only will this bring a new twist of writing to your blog, but it also frees up your time so you can take care of other important areas such as monetizing your site and working on your long term marketing and business plans.
There are many places to look for writers for your site, but not all of them are created equal. In this post we are going to list a few places that you should be listing your blog writing jobs and maybe even help you find some long term writers for your job.
Create Writing Jobs on Content Marketplaces
Over the past few years we have seen a lot of expansion in the content marketing places available. Everything from micro job sites to writing full articles and ebooks on demand. The goal of content marketplaces is to match advertisers, site owners and writers together. As a blog site owner you can post the details of articles you would like written for your site, then one of the hundreds of thousands of writers on the site will complete the job for you. A few of the many content writing sites out there are Blogging.org, Fiverr.com and TextBroker.com.
Post Your Blog on Blogger Job Boards
One of the best ways to find quality blog writers is by posting on blogger job boards. The reason why job boards are an excellent place to find high end writers is because they are usually targeted towards people who already know how to write good content and know their way around WordPress. There is usually a small fee to include your listing on a job board, but it is well worth the attention and job applications you will get from the posting. You can see some of the top blogger job boards from my previous post on this topic.
Use Freelance Sites to Find Quality Writers
We mentioned content marketplaces and blogger job boards, but if you are looking for writers with a full resume who can complete many different tasks online, you may want to focus your search towards freelance job sites. Sites likes Elance.com and Freelancer.com are excellent for posting writing jobs. Once you listing is live on their network, you will get a ton of people who would like to work for you. Each will have their own resumes, work examples and feedback from previous clients. Hire one individual for your job, or a whole team. Both sites are setup with a great platform for managing your jobs and workforce.
There are plenty of content creation and job based sites for you to look through, but it’s not as simple as just posting a job and picking anyone who replies. As a site owner you will need to review content and make sure it’s in perfect English and high in quality content. Lots of people are out there and looking for writing jobs, which means it’s a very competitive market, but it also means you can hire writers at competitive rates. Take the time to do your research, build a quality team of writers and watch your blog rankings and content explode!
