There are various aspects of a writer that you can evaluate to determine whether you have a great freelance content writer for long term projects and continuous work or a one time show pony capable of writing informative content [with the possibility of it going nowhere].

Here are a few character traits that any great Content Writer will be willing to discuss during your consultation:

Experience as a Freelancer and Passionate as a Writer

As more work becomes available it is easy for any new writer or stay at home mom to rack up on quick gigs and general feedback from projects completed; However, an experienced Freelancer, who is passionate about writing, will provide an in-depth portfolio of consistent work completed for reoccurring clients and valuable referrals from those clients.

A reliable and consistent Freelance Writer will most likely have a diverse portfolio and have dabbled in a variety of niches, which will enable her ability to write about various subject matters in detail and with ease. An established writer will present you with an organized list of published works and copies of such, as any prideful writer keeps a copy nearby. You might notice some jobs are extremely smaller than others, but this is evident proof that they are in it for more than the money, and most likely these small jobs turned into reoccurring clients later. A writer who is passionate about their work invests a great deal more time in establishing work relationships and even more time ensuring clients get the needed results from said work.

Freelance Content Writers with Focus and Public Awareness

Whenever your Platform grows you are sure to encounter a new audience or demographic. A diligent Freelance Content Writer can provide all-inclusive content for a variety of demographics or re-construct previous content to take your new viewers in to account. You can even locate Freelance Writers able to write in multiple languages for those who encounter language barriers when accessing your content. Tis can be important, for example when an article is written in English by an individual who speaks English as a second language. It is clearly noticeable and as such will later require an editor.

Freelancer Writers with Niche Specialties

Like each company having a certain brand and service, most freelancers have a specific niche, despite what their portfolio shows. If you are hiring out for content, ask for samples of work related to your brand or business. Be sure to state уоur requirements. Once you have sampled their related work and have had a chance to assess their writing quality, you can further determine whether or not this Freelance Content Writer is suited for your project. If you want them to draft something original to test them even further, offer a small sum as incentive for work that might not even be published, providing proper incentive. This is probably the most vital part of outsourcing content- because while previous work might have been a knock out the park- chances are it might not be the same with your intended content. So, be sure to test out your writer before actually hiring them.

Freelance Writers with Open Availability and Communication Lines

It can be frustrating for both client and writer when both are working from remote locations; it will be important tо have wауѕ tо be ассеѕѕіblе tо еасh оthеr, such as phone lines and even skype for last minute conversations and updates. An experienced Freelance Content Writer will provide multiple lines of communication and times when you will be able to reach them.
