How to find a copywriter
How Many Articles Per Week?
When you first decide to engage a copywriter you may want to decide on trialing one article first. It makes sense to see how the system works on a writing platform or when you engage a freelancer for the first time. This will give you an opportunity to see the quality of the writing from your chosen person and see how much polishing it will take to publish that article on your website.
Keep in mind that no matter the guidelines that you give your writer they can never give you exactly what you have in your head. So you will be doing some adjusting of the content and adding internal links, external links, affiliate banners, and possibly graphs and pictures.
How long will it take me to edit?
This will depend on how much you change, correct and add. But I find it takes me about an hour and a half to read every word, add links and photos and maximize for SEO in the dashboard of my website for a 2000+ article. (I learn heaps from reading the articles written for me.)
It also depends on your typing speed and knowledge of SEO and work schedule. You will get faster with practice.
Filling out your website
To make it worth the money and effort you need to be utilizing a copywriter to best effect. Keep in mind that you want to be adding 2 x 2000+ articles and at least 2 x 1000+ articles per week. So decide which ones you will do yourself and which you will allocate to a copywriter.
You may reallocate your time to going back to some of your earliest articles and adding more text to grow that article to a pillar post of around 4000+ words. Google takes note of these authority articles and you should aim for about 4 on your website.
