I'd be extremely interested Jerry. I outsourced to a writer once. What a horrible experience it was. I ended up going through several writer's for one article. In the end I wrote the article myself. Jim

My questions are all the "how to execute" questions.

I've had one outsourcing experience for creative on Envato. And it was absolutely horrible. The final output of what I got vs. what his "portfolio" examples did not compare. I even wrote very thorough design info of what I wanted. And it was like he only got 25% of what I wrote down. What you said about detail was absolutely true with my experience.

So for hiring a writer, (I like the idea of full-time...):

What source did you use to find your writer?
How did you narrow down to a few test writers? What criteria to use / look for?
How did you get writer to agree with great cost: ($400 / 20 posts = $20 a posts.)
How did you create the training for writer? PDF, video tutorials?
Do you have some written agreement / contract with writer for how long you pay him / or ways to release him if it doesn't work?
Tips on building a lasting partnership with writer the benefits both sides.

Thanks!

Excellent questions Kim.

@Jerry

- How to prepare any documents for tax purposes?
- How to know if ESL writers are good?

I mean for me English is also a second language, but I've lived in Canada since I was 14 and went through high school and university here... what about those who don't live in the English-speaking countries?

Like Candp said coming up with how much to pay is a start. But I am curious just as to how it all works like do I give them limited access to write the post, or how would you get the articles and prep them to be posted. And with hiring a writer do you still post it as if you wrote it?

Well, we would be curious how you came up with a figure of $400 for a full-time writer. What constitutes "full time"?
We are sure you will cover it in depth. We have read you and know how thorough you are.
Really looking forward to it and so much appreciate your doing this.

Hey Steve,

I'm not hiring writer on a freelance basis. I'm hiring on full-time basis. So I don't pay by word count.

I hire from Philippines so $400/month is a good amount of money for their living in Philippines.

Different scenario from what you're talking about.

Will share how to do that in the course.

I'm definitely not underpaying them :)
