Hi Wamily, I am just after the perspective of people who have used the service of hiring writers for their blogging website.
Whenever I read stories about people who are doing well, without fail they use the service of writers for their website. I am just wondering at what point of your journey you would consider hiring a writer.

Whenever can you afford it? Whenever your website starts gaining some substantial traffic? Whenever you begin to make some regular sales?

Of course, it is all up to the individual and for me, it is a bit early in my journey to make this move, but I am just curious when others have started to use writers for their website and what were your results?

Are their other priorities first before spending money on writers?
I love to hear your opinion and experience on this.
Have a blessed week everyone.

Hi Jude, hiring writers is a challenge. Or more accurately, hiring the right writer is a challenge. I've outsourced individual articles with varying degrees of success and in my experience it's only worth it if you're ready to commit to hiring a writer for regular work. In the time it took to screen and test writers for a single article, I could have written three or four myself.

I did eventually hire a full-time writer as taught in Jerry's course... The process of going through and corresponding back and forth with applicants, having trial articles written, negotiating pay and most importantly, training, can take a few weeks though. I think it took me about a month, maybe longer if I remember correctly. If you're committed to hiring your writer long-term, it's a good investment but also challenging. A lot of writers look good during the application process, but their test articles are horrible (for lack of a kinder word).

I've heard good things about SEOContentHero, but I haven't tried them so can't speak from experience.

Also, if you've upgraded to premium plus (sorry if you haven't Jude, I'm not sure how to check except for the profile icons on the recently updated sections of the platform), Tim put out this training recently.

Hi Jay, thank you for your thorough answer, it makes sense what you are saying, and I will definitely check out the first training. I can't use the second link as I am not a premium plus at this stage.

Thanks a lot for sharing your insight, I appreciate it.

I am a writer, so I haven't had to hire one. But I've also been in this industry for over 20 years, so I've seen countless other folks hire writers. I have one piece of advice.

Good. Fast. Cheap.

Pick two.

If you want it good and fast, it won't be cheap.
If you want it good and cheap, it won't be fast.
If you want it fast and cheap, it won't be good.

This is always true!

Good luck.

My comment would be when you can afford AT LEAST $50 for a good writer because an article has to convert and has to be written by a native English or American speaker who understands keywords. Frequently Indian or Philipino writers write an article but then you need to spend hours rewriting it to read as though it was written by a native speaker

Interesting question, following... I wanted to test working with a writer last month by collaborating with a virtual assistant service ( based in India). Unfortunately their content creation section is not available due to COVID right now, so no experience at my end yet. I have used them for other services though, like providing images for my posts and I have found this to be very effective for me. It has enabled me to bring my publishing frequency up a bit.

Yeah, I have the same issue and thinking it would be helpful to get some more content out.
Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it.
