How to Hire a Content Writer
How to hire top content writers
If you ever tried writing your own content, you know it takes time—a lot of time. A single article takes 10-15 hours on average, depending on the article’s length and depth. And that doesn’t account for revisions or approvals you may need to chase down. The thing is, great content is a lynchpin for building and nurturing relationships with customers. From social media, ebooks to blog posts, the need for content never stops. But when you’re committed to producing content that delivers value, writing can become a full-time job, which doesn’t leave much time for your many other tasks.
From social media and ebooks to blog posts, it can be tough to keep up. That’s why many businesses contract professional content writers. But how do you hire a content writer? What follows is a crash course on how you can find top content writers on Upwork.
How to shortlist content writers
As you’re browsing available content writers, it can be helpful to develop a shortlist of the contractors you may want to interview. You can screen profiles on criteria such as:
- Industry fit. A specialist can write more content, faster, and with in-depth knowledge of your industry.
- Portfolio. The best way to gauge the skill of a content writer is to read what they wrote. Personal blogs are a great starting place.
- Feedback. Reviews can reveal any red flags such as missed deadlines. Glowing feedback can tip you off to a writer with an exceptional work ethic.
How to write an effective content writing job post
Before posting a job, consider these questions:
- When do I need the project done? If you have a tight deadline, a more experienced writer may be able to turn a project around faster and with fewer edits needed.
- Do I need a subject matter expert? Depending on a project’s goals and target audience, you may need a writer with more knowledge of a subject.
- What’s my budget? Consider the project’s simplicity and quality needs. A tight budget doesn’t always mean hiring a less experienced writer. Sometimes, a newer writer may eat up a budget and staff time through multiple rounds of edits.
- How critical is the project? Is the writing key to supporting a larger project? Is it a high-visibility piece? Consider paying for a higher-skilled writer.
Keep in mind that many people use the term “job description,” but a full job description is only needed for employees. When engaging a freelancer as an independent contractor, you typically just need a statement of work, job post, or any other document that describes the work to be done.
Your job post needs to clearly answer three questions:
- What do you need done?
- When do you need it?
- What are the start and end dates for your project?
Answering these questions with the pertinent details can not only help you attract more qualified talent, but you’ll also receive more accurate proposals.
Here’s how it may look:
Title: Scriptwriter for short “how-to” videos
Can you take complicated info and boil it down to key facts? Oh yeah, and make it interesting? We’re a SaaS company needing a scriptwriter to write 1-2 minute scripts for our “how-to” and feature videos. We have 10 videos to create in total. You’ll need to become familiar with our platform and work with our video team to fine-tune the script.
- Script for 10 videos
- No longer than 2-minutes per video
- Scripts can be delivered as they’re completed. All 10 scripts must be delivered by [month], [date], [year]
- Experience working with a video production team a plus
- Write with an easy-going voice
- Please send 2-3 samples of short explainer script you’ve completed in the past
- Include the word “glasses: in the first line of your cover letter
Did you notice the unusual item under requirements? Yes, asking to include the word “glasses” in the cover letter. Adding things like this is optional, but when you need someone detailed, it’s a good way to see if they’re observant and follow instructions well. It’s also a quick way to filter through a pile of proposals.

CONTENT WRITERS FAQ
What is content writing?
Content writing is the art of producing blog posts, product reviews, press releases, ad copy, and other marketing collateral. Content writers can make complex topics accessible to the layperson, or convince potential leads to follow through on a purchase.
There are many types of content writers. A few common ones include:
- SEO: They incorporate internal links, targeted keywords, and keyword phrases into online copy so it reads naturally—this helps content and sites organically rank higher.
- Generalist: They may be a smart choice for shorter or higher volume content to build brand awareness and make announcements.
- Technical: Technical writers are skilled at making complex information easier to understand. They’re often used for manuals, whitepapers, and guides.
- Social media: They may specialize in a specific social platform such as LinkedIn or Instagram, or be well-versed in several. They know how to write concise and catchy content, and often know when to post it to optimize engagement.
- Journalistic: They may be for pieces that need a unique angle or subject matter expertise such as articles that will be pitched for media placement and customer stories.
Here’s a quick overview of the skills you should look for in a freelance content writer:
- Excellent writing and grammar
- Adaptable writing voice that can match different styles/tones
- Word processing tools such as Microsoft Word or Google Docs
- Marketing skills (e.g., B2B, B2C, SEO)
Top content writers know how to craft content that both engages the reader and performs well in search engines.
Why hire content writers?
If you want to find a top content writer, it helps to get specific about your needs. There’s a big difference between writing simple SEO blog posts and long form sales pages designed to convert. Do you need someone to write the targeted message templates that will go into your automated email campaign? Or are you looking for experience writing product reviews? The scope of work of your project will have a direct impact on the cost of your content writing project.
How much does it cost to hire a content writer?
On Upwork, the rates for top content writers can range from as low as $15 dollars an hour to as high as $80, though most fall in the $30-50 range. Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions. An experienced content writer may command higher fees but also may work faster, have more specialized areas of expertise, and deliver a higher quality product that needs less editing on your end. That said, a freelancer who is still in the process of building a client base may price their writing more competitively. Which one is right for you will depend on the specifics of your content.
Timeline and Project Creep
As difficult as it is to estimate how long it takes to write a piece of content, budgeting time is very important to keeping your project on track. Be prepared to budget more time for more intense content demands. For example, less involved content will typically take less time than more heavily researched, long-format articles. On the other hand, a project like 500 short product descriptions might be easier to budget a bulk amount of time.
If your project has a short, non-negotiable deadline, know you may have to pay a premium to get the content you needed delivered on time, and without the potentially lower quality that comes with a rushed job. (Or, be prepared to hire more than one writer.)
Content writer vs. copywriter – what’s the difference?
The main difference between a content writer and copywriter is that copywriters integrate psychology and sales into their writing to drive conversions such as to sign up, download, or buy something. They often work on assets designed to convert including sales landing pages, ads, email campaigns, TV, and direct main projects.
