You’ve got the low-down on why content writing from within your own industry is a no-no. But if not you, then who?
Let’s say you’ve got a friend – we’ll call her Jane – who moonlights as a freelance copywriter. She’s got a sweet content writing side-hustle and has offered to write your copy for you.
You’ve also heard about a team of copywriters who worked on the content for your great uncle’s fly-fishing website, and he mentioned having been quite pleased with their work.
Just like a classic Goosebumps novel, you find yourself at a fork in the content writing road.
The thrilling opportunity has come up for to choose your own ending – will you go with a freelancer or a team of copywriters?
Jane the freelancer
She’s a one (wo)man band
Jane sails a solo ship. While she may stand steady at the helm, she has no co-captain to navigate complex ideas with.
Without a collaboration process, Jane’s content writing reviews and edits will be party to her eyes only. If the copy isn’t reviewed by a separate pair of eyes, her own voice will likely shine through (even a teeny bit) in every article she writes.
She keeps her own hours
Jane is a free bird. She will write for you when she can, but that may not be as often as you would like.
She probably has a full-time job and splashes about with some content writing on the side. Her working hours might be the total opposite of yours, and it’s likely she’s not always around to take your calls or urgent emails.
If Jane is busy making waves in her own life, her customer focus might just slip right on by the wayside.
She claims to be an expert, but is she really?
How well do you know Jane? Is her copywriting really up to the standard that you’re after?
Does she include SEO services? Is she using the right tone and capturing the right audience?
You can never be sure what her research process is – whether she’s doing any, and if so, whether she’s doing it right. Jane might be really good at writing for her favourite industries, but how well can she write about yours?
If you’re paying someone to write your content, you want to make sure that you’re getting the best bang for your buck.
