Hiring Writers on Odesk

November 12th, 2010

If you’re looking for a writer to write some articles for you for your website, article directory promotions, or blog posts, a good place to look is Odesk.

Odesk is a good place to find freelance writers at competitive prices, and it can be much less of a hassle than trying to find a writer on Craigslist. Believe me, I’ve tried both ways.

At Odesk, you can see your candidates history through writing samples and from client feedback. These can be very enlightening and can give a glimpse into the work habits and talent of your potential hire.

If you’re looking for a writer to write blog posts or other content for you, it will help you immensely to see some previous work and feedback. This will help you make a more informed decision.

When you set up a job offer, you will get a bunch of potential candidates who will tell you why they should get the gig and will also “bid” on the job, effectively telling you how much their services will cost.

It takes some time to weed out the unqualified writers from the ones that will do good work.  That comes with the territory when you’re looking for a freelance content writer.  It’s a good idea to start with a small job before moving onto a larger project.  You want to know you can count on the writer.

ODesk.com
is a very good place to find writers. I recommend the service and have had a very good experience with the site.
