A freelance content writer writes for different publications, businesses, and brands. They create articles, blog posts, press releases, website copy, and any other kind of written content. Freelance content writers often interview sources, perform in-depth research, and distill complex information into different types of text. Freelance content writers may work in a specific niche or write more generally. While some writers write under their own name, others ghostwrite under the name of another person or company.

It sounds obvious, but freelance content writers should be able to write creativitivly and match a brand’s tone. By making content interesting, freelance content writers draw in your audience and leave them eager to learn more about your brand. Regardless of what a freelance content writer is working on, content writers should be familiar with search engine optimization to ensure that website copy and articles rank well in internet searches. While some freelance content writers are already experts in certain niches, every freelance content writer should be able to write widely through deep research. Writers should be able to familiarize themselves with statistics and industry trends. Additionally, freelance content writers need to give clean copy that requires minimal edits to their clients. They must be able to copy edit and proofread their own writing and have strong writing skills. Finally, freelance content writers must be able to deliver quality content on time, every time to their clients.

There’s three ways to hire a freelance content writer through Contra:

Post a compelling opportunity for your position. Posting an opportunity is perfect for when you know what kind of content you need and you want to look through applications from qualified freelance content writers. Click the “Hire an Independent” button to write a job description, select a few desired skills, and set your timeline and budget. Provide freelance writers with all the information they need to know about the type of work they’ll be doing.

Discover an Independent writer you’d like to work with on our Discover Page. If you find a freelance content writer you’d like to work with, tap the “Get in Touch” button to send them an inquiry.

Craft and sent a proposal to a specific freelance content writer. If you know who you want to work with (or are already working with a freelance writer), you can send a proposal their way. Hit “Create proposal,” add information about payment, deliverables, scope of work, and the required timeline.

Before hiring a freelance content writer, review their portfolio and look at their qualifications. We recommend booking an intro call with Independent writers to discuss project scope and overall expectations.

Businesses need all kinds of content in order to run: website copy, blog posts, email and social media copy, press releases, white papers, instruction guides, and so much more. You could write them yourself, but don’t you have better things to do? Clearly communicating with your audience through the written word takes intention, knowledge, and skills that freelance content writers are trained to provide. Freelance content writers can create a wide variety of content for your target audience or client and help you promote your services and products.

If you’re ready to level up your content production, it’s time to hire a freelance content writer. Hundreds of freelance content writers use Contra to find Clients to work with. Find your perfect freelance content writer right now on Contra. Use the Discover Page to browse through a collection of writers’ portfolios complete with work samples and projects.

Any time is a good time to hire a freelance content writer. You may realize that you need a freelance content writer when website copy is outdated, the company blog has not been updated, or when you’re ready to launch a new feature. If you don’t have time to produce high-quality content for your brand, then it’s time to outsource this important task to a freelance content writer. Working with a freelance content writer ensures that content is created quickly.

On Contra, Clients must pay freelance content writers a minimum of $250 or $25 an hour. The exact rate varies depending on the writers’ experience, expertise, the type of project, and the scope of work. Some freelance content writers charge more for ghostwriting projects because their byline is not attached.
