On which freelance stock exchange are the best copywriters and editors?Asked bycavin
Who used the services of copywriters, please tell me which mercenary exchange you have pleasant memories. It would be ideal to find a person keen on the development of an information resource about IT, and regularly pay him a small coin for creating topical interesting materials.
Using my standard practice of estimating popularity with the help of search engines in this case turned out to be impossible due to some crazy amount of SEO spam for keywords on the topic.
Upd 1. Almost all the answers turned out to be useful in their own way, so everyone is put into karma by a plus.
Upd 2. Since some copywriters come here, they wrote a separate link for them.
In my opinion, you should formalize the concept of a “good copywriter” and requirements for it.
For example, a good copywriter:
- experience in copywriting N years
- At least X publications on IT topics
- The average content uniqueness is at least Y% according to such a system
The tasks will include:
- Publish at least n materials per week
- The volume of one article is approximately y thousand characters.
- Sources of articles - foreign publications, rewriting, own content
Terms of payment such and such.
Possible career growth to the editor of the portal or something like that.
Then having placed this offer on any popular stock exchange you will receive about two dozen offers. And it will be necessary to filter them, to communicate with each author separately, if you want to find a good person on a long-term basis. I recommend to communicate by voice via Skype, for example, a person’s capabilities are felt better, by speaking you can understand how he thinks, whether he is lying, etc.
If you go back to the exchanges, I recommend free-lance.ru, because you need a person, not a specialized exchange like Advego, where objects are texts, not people. IMHO
I rarely buy through exchanges, more often I find people there and work directly. I do so6 I go to the freelance website, set the parameters for what articles I need and select people in the resulting list, watch their profile and already personally communicate ...
